By Jan Eik

Mit der Kälte aus den Wäldern Schamaiens und des fernen Rus hatte der schneidende Ostwind nur wenig Schnee gebracht, sonst wäre der Tote erst mit der Schneeschmelze im späten Frühjahr entdeckt worden. So jedoch fiel an jenem trüben Herbstmorgen des 12. November 1524 der noch vom Wein getrübte Blick des Ritterbruders Martin auf vier dicht beieinander aus der Eisfläche aufragende Aststümpfe. Nichts anderes als der blanke Übermut seiner neunzehn Jahre und die gebotene Kühlung seines schmerzenden Schädels hatten Martin von Barnhusen-Asseberg auf die gefährlich knisternde Eisdecke des Wallgrabens getrieben, auf der es sich trefflich rutschen ließ. Martin kannte die Stelle unterhalb der Wallmauer hinter der Kapelle intestine. Sie ließ sich von den schmalen Fenstern des Hohen Schlosses nur schlecht einsehen. Schon im iciness zuvor hatte er sich dort gelegentlich auf dem Eis vergnügt, solange der Schnee noch nicht zu hoch lag, und im Sommer traf ihn der Priesterbruder Simon gar in der Zeit des vorgeschriebenen Stundengebets schlafend auf dem schmalen Rasenstreifen am Graben an, den Oberkörper schamlos entblößt! In der warmen Sonne hatte Martin Lust zum Baden empfunden. Nur der üble Geruch des dunklen Gewässers hielt ihn zurück. Immerhin flossen die stinkenden Abwässer des Danzkers, des Turmaborts der Burg, in diesen Graben.
