The Stone Hero

A myth submitted to the site by Eloise Hughes


Long, long ago, in the spectacular land of Scotland, there was a muddy mountain called Clydach Gorge. Surrounding Clydach Gorge was an old, little village, that is unnamed. In this village was a young boy called Perce. Perce had strawberry blonde hair and wore nothing but a few rag, but he was happy just the way he was...

One day, sitting under his favourite blossom tree, as the sun was beamed down onto the lush fields. “Ah! Some one help me!” A little boy came running into Perce ’s arms. “she’s coming!” he said shaking.
“who, who’s coming?” Perce asked, trying to stay calm.
“M..M...Medusa,” replied the boy. The boy jumped into Perce ‘s arms as Medusa approached.
With a leather black coat and snakes in her hair, everyone faired Medusa! Terrified, Perce stood up and ran for his life, but the boy got heavier. Perce looked at the boy... he was stone! Perce dropped the boy and ran.

Perce started to get as red as a rose, consequently he got slower and slower until... he stopped. What was he going to do? Gingerly, medusa walked to Perce “Ha ha you can never get away from me! No one can!” Aggressively, Medusa picked up Perce and took him to her layer.

Slowly, Perce revalorized where he was, but suddenly he got up and ran for his life. Medusa sore and ran after him. Who would win? Medusa almost turned Perce into stone, but Perce was cleaver and picked up a mirror. The green ray reflected and immediately turned her into stone. As time past, you can still see the body of medusa trapped in stone at the top of Clydach Gorge.
