He spurned all offers to heal the breach, instead biding his time for two decades. Upon hearing that he was finally about to be avenged on Edmund for this crime, he set out for King Feng’s court in England to await an opportunity to confront him with force. On his way, he stopped in a secluded corner of the forest to rest from his journey. He was seeking respite from the hot sun and had chosen to lie down beneath an ancient oak tree. As he lay there, his mind became restless and finally made him get up.
