How to get the heroine into the forest. . . .

Well, I have a way.  She and her bridegroom will go to visit her parents.  Hence, through the border, which has a forest, because of course this is a fairy tale kingdom.

Which does not quite smooth out the transition.  She has to get on the road.  Also, they have to learn something, or they will be in the forest and bewildered.  Need to introduce someone who can tell tales.  Preferably without tests for nice character as we've already had that.

The devil is in the details. . . .
