Dear Arthur

Dear Arthur,

Your highness, I have heard a lot of stories about you ( one of the most known king across the world). Awesome name by the way, I hoped for something legendary like yours (bear-like). Unfortunately, my parents came up with a longer, more complicated one. I wanted to know a few things about you. It might be a bit personal.

First, how did it feel like when you lifted the Excalibur from that stone? Second, did you really think of what would happen after? What was it like when you first met Guinevere? Was it really love at first sight? Serendipity? Or did you have medieval versions of Tinder? How you have inspired the youth to embrace chivalry. What are the things that I should consider should I also want to set up an empire over Britain, Ireland, Iceland, and Norway? I wonder if you know how popular you are.

Just so you know, I dream daily on how it is like in your shoes. The idea of governing a kingdom, being known for one’s courage and having my name live in infamy. If it is too much to ask, how about introducing me to Merlin? He is a good contact. Maybe you can take me to your time and appoint me as a knight? You see at the moment, I am a struggling jester and it is not even intended. A lot of people question me on what I can offer to the world.  I am hoping that with this letter I can transition from being a joke into a knight.

Let me know what you think and I would love to hear some sound advice from you.

Respectfully yours,
