The Brave Mr Jones and the Ugly Gorberus (and Princess)

A myth submitted to the site by Gareth Jones

Santorini, Greece

A long time ago, when things were very scary a handsome young man called Mr Jones went on an exciting journey. Zeus the King of the Gods had a difficult problem which he could not solve alone. He chose the handsome, young hero to rescue the beautiful princess from the disgusting Gorberus. “You are the bravest and strongest man I know, only you can save my daughter” sobbed Zeus.

The following day the strong, handsome hero boarded his boat and set sail to the island of Santorini. Unfortunately on the way a powerful and violent storm began. However the brave Mr Jones was not deterred, he took the tiller and lowered the sail. The storm seemed everlasting but the handsome hero boldly held on to the wheel until the storm subsided. The next day the seas were calm and he sailed on to the island.

When he arrived at the amazing island of Santorini he gazed across the blue-green water towards the blue roofs of Santorini. On top of the hill he could see the dark castle where the fearsome Gorberus had seized the beautiful princess. He quickly ran up the steep hill and past the sleeping guards. He found the deadly Gorberus outside the top room of the castle. They fought, it was a long and terrible fight, and eventually he killed the Gorberus and rescued the princess.

Just as everything seemed to be going so well, the handsome, strong hero came face to face with the princess.
“Oh, King Zeus said you were beautiful but you are not, I can’t possibly rescue you!” exclaimed the hero. The princess was very upset and began to cry.
“Be quiet, I am trying to think of a solution” screamed the hero.
“Here take this.” said the princess, “it’s a, magic ball, it will grant you one wish!”
So, the hero took the ball and wished that… Well what do you think?
