Robin Hoods Plan

A myth submitted to the site by Anna Prince

Nottingham, England

As Robin Hood walked home through the peaceful forest, he saw a fearsome figure on the narrow bridge. He quickly crept behind one of the many Oak trees where if you were on the bridge you couldn’t see him. Robin Hood had to think of a plan to try and get this man to join his team instead of the Sheriff of Nottingham’s Army. Quicker than you can say fight, the green male came up with a scheme which he thought might work.

He had to prepare for this plan, because he needed some props to make it work. He sent his friend little John to gallop back to the camp to get some old lady clothes and a walking stick while he made sure the chap stayed on the bridge. As the camp wasn’t far away, little John was back in a few minutes. Once Robin’s trusted friend was back, the champion bow and arrow shooter got changed for the next step of his plan.

As Robin hobbled onto the narrow bridge the man’s attention drew to him. As the two figures became closer, the old lady croaked “Will you let a little old lady like me past?”
“Why certainly not, I was on here first!”
“Fancy a fight then do you? “ The man chuckled he thought this would be an easy match.
“Bring it on soldier.” Just after she’d said these words he noticed she looked as if she was taking off her clothes. The next thing he knew the old lady was a young man dressed in green! The man drew his long stick as the person he was against nearly hit him with the walking stick he was using earlier. They broke out into a fight where they were equally matched and both became very wobbly.

First Robin Hood aimed a shot but his Aponte stopped him. Then the fearsome warrior tried and was a few cm’s short of Robin Hood’s hip. Robin tried again but the man he was playing stopped him. There sticks kept banging together as they tried to defend their selves. The fight went on for ages and little John became very bored. As little John looked to see if one of them had won, the man who Robin Hood was against aimed a shot and unfortunately the green man wasn’t paying attention.
Little John shouted “Robin!” but it was too late, his friend had fallen in. Robin Hood said “You’re a good soldier, I bet now you want to take me under arrest because you’re with the Sheriff.”
“I hate the Sheriff!” The man responded, “I’ve been looking for a man called Robin Hood, he has a team who is against that evil beast.”

As Robin Hood got out of the water he told the man who he was and about his life. The man then told Robin about him and Robin made the warrior a member of his team.
