The Beast in the Coffin

A myth submitted to the site by Sean Puente Oshea

Athens, Greece

In ancient times, Rome and Greece were at war. They fought for days, weeks, months and even years. They were fighting because every 6 months, a beast hid in a powerful coffin and each day he would wake up the dead, so the dead and the powerful beast threatened human beings until they neeled and worshiped the beast.

That was when the war started but one Greek young warrior was friends with a Roman young warrior. They didn't want to fight each other so the day before the war started, they tried to kill the beast in the coffin day and night but first they needed to destroy the dead. The two of them tried to defeat the undead but it was no use because the undead were already dead.

As a plan, they distracted the dead and then they ran in to the coffin, the beast walked in closer and closer to the coffin. When the beast was nearly next to the coffin, they jumped out and used their sword to hit the beast in the chest. The beast was dead, all they could see was his sharp nails and his deadly eyes.

They sailed back home and in the middle of the war they stopped the war.
They shouted out "The beast is dead!".
Everybody was comfused because everyone else who tried to slay the beast had failed miserably.
Everybody shouted "Hooray, hooray!". Greece and Rome became friends and stopped the war immediately.
