I woke up feeling cold with sweat dripping from my body I am in this strange room with a huge window. As I get up to look through the window I realise I am in a world that I am not familiar with clutching my time watch in the palm of my hand I remember like it was yesterday the endless travelling on carriages and horses on bumpy roads, hunting and hawking with my family and the smell of fresh green crops. The scrumptious taste of deer and bread made from fine white flour. Playing wrestling, billiards, chess and backgammon, bowls and skittles, shuffleboard and watching cockfighting and bear-baiting. I also remember watching public executions among the crowd of villagers as they use the axe to behead the criminals.

As I look around I see my clothes neatly folded my doublet, jerkin, hose, knee breeches, cloak and hat. I am wearing clothes that I feel uncomfortable in just as I am about to get changed and enter this strange outside world I hear a feminine voice. I turn around to see her at the door breath taken by her beauty her long silky brunette hair, honey coloured eyes and hourglass shaped body. I am lost for words as I try to lip read the words coming out from her deep red lips. I say to her "thou art pretty, little maiden" meaning "you are a pretty little girl". I thank her for her kindness and hospitality she looks at me strangely like I have come from a different planet I watch her leave me in this room with a puzzled look on her face. I don't know what to say to her as I don't understand the language she speaks.
