Orlando is back near home. At that time he met his old servant Adams. Seeing him, Adam said, “Listen, little master! If you want to save your life, don’t enter the house anymore. Your older brother Oliver himself arranged for you to be killed by the murderer Charles. He is furious to hear that you have lost to Charles in wrestling, and intends to burn you tonight. So I say to you, if you want to save your life, don’t enter this house anymore. ”
“Where will I go if I don’t enter the house?” Orlando said, “Do you want me to roam the streets like a beggar or live like a fox-dog by stealing and bullying?” Better a poor horse than no horse at all. ”
“I’m not saying that, little master,” said Adam, interrupting. “I have set aside five hundred crowns from the salary your father paid me when I was alive.” Now you take that money. Later, when he stands on his own feet, he has to pay. And right in front of you, Oliver fired me. Now I will go wherever you take me, I will serve you as long as I can. ”
Orlando’s eyes filled with tears when she heard Adam say, “Oh Adam! You want to save a rotten tree. But will it bloom in the end? ”
Your father, Sir Roald D’Boy, was the ruler of the world. Today he is no longer with us. Even at the age of eighty, I am still working for you. It is my good fortune to be able to die in peace without mine. Go to Orlando! You go ahead, I’m coming after you?

The Duke confiscated Oliver’s house, possessions, money, and drove him out of the country. Despite many cries, Oliver could not melt the Duke’s mind. The Duke made it clear to Oliver, “There is no point in crying. If you can take Orlando and bring it to me then you will get everything back, otherwise, if you come back to this state you will get your neck. I hope he will remember. ”

Meanwhile, I have left him lying under a tree. It’s okay if you give food to him if you feel good, otherwise, I will be forced to take food for him. I am hungry but I do not want anything for myself. I can’t stand the old man squirming in front of me without eating. ”
The Duke said calmly, “Listen, young man, you can take as much food as you like for the old man.
