The Questing Beast

Amy Griswold

 

 

 

The first time Sir Palamedes is tempted to give up pursuing the Questing Beast, he is tramping through the woods on a bleak winter day, his frosty breath hanging in a white cloud each time he exhales.  His feet are sore, and his shoes are worn thin.  His horse went lame a week ago, and is returning home in the uncertain care of Palamedes’ squire.  Palamedes is following the sound of distant barking, and is beginning to think the sound will drive him mad.

Asking out a pretty girl.

(Insert shriek of terror here.)

I’ve been putting it off, shoving it to that dusty place in the back of my mind where I keep things I’m afraid of—like the fact that house centipedes exist—but it has to be now, before she goes back home.

I take a deep breath, my heart beating like a drum roll, and step into the lab.

And there’s Ada, Countess of Lovelace, daughter of Lord Byron, world’s first computer programmer, and unquestionably 1840’s sexiest woman alive.
