So Rob fell to planning how he could disguise himself to go to Nottingham town; for he knew that the Foresters had even then set a price on his head in the market-place.
If Rob had been grimly resolved to win the arrow before, the sight of her sweet face multiplied his determination an hundredfold.
Rob looked to his string, while the crowd smiled and whispered at the odd figure he cut, with his vari-colored legs and little cape.
Rob shot sixth in the line and landed fairly, being rewarded by an approving grunt from the man with the green blinder, who shot seventh, and with apparent carelessness, yet true to the bull's-eye.
Rob fitted his arrow quietly and with some confidence sped it unerringly toward the shining circle.
Nay," said Rob, "but you are a good fellow by this token, and if I win not, I hope you may keep the prize from yon strutters.
A loud uproar broke forth when it alighted, just without the center and grazing the shaft sent by Rob.
And turning suddenly he was lost in the crowd, before Rob could utter what it was upon his lips to say, that he would shoot again with him.
And now the herald summoned Rob to the Sheriff's box to receive the prize.
I am called Rob the Stroller, my Lord Sheriff," said the archer.
Well, Rob the Stroller, with a little attention to your skin and clothes you would not be so bad a man," said the Sheriff.
At this point the herald nudged Rob and half inclined his head toward the Sheriff's daughter, who sat with a thin smile upon her lips.
