10/2/16 The boy who cried Grendel!
Once upon a time in a land far, far away, there was a shepherd called Limo. Limo came from Denmark and he was a shepherd who looked after sheep.Limo lived in a barn with a wealthy family who sold animals for money. But every night, Grendel, a creature who camouflaged in the dark with his mother, would go inside Limo’s barn and steal two sheep and a cow. When this happened, Limo had to call the villagers and they would try to rescue the sheep. Today though, he felt bored and he decided to call the villagers, so he yelled “GRENDEL is here, help!”. The villagers stopped what they were doing and ran to Limo’s barn. But they found nothing!
Limo said that he was just joking around and the villagers went back to their houses all grumpy and annoyed. When Limo realised the attention he got, he had an idea. The next day, Limo went to the barn and yelled “GRENDEL IS HERE!” and just like , the villagers ran to the barn and they found nothing again. This time Limo said he thought he had seen Grendel but he hadn’t.
The third day, when Limo was relaxing he heard a crack! He heard a sniff. He heard footsteps…then he saw a shadow, two shadows. The shadows were lurking above Limo. Limo was sweating hardly. His blood pumped quickly. His heart was pounding erratically. He tried to scream but no voice came out… Then he saw Grendel the Titan and his old looking mother! Limo was shocked and as he was going to yell, a claw sunk on his head.
Later when the villagers came to the barn, they lost their animals and there was Limo, lying on the floor in a pool of blood.
So the moral of the story is to always tell the truth.
