King James and the Beast.

A myth submitted to the site by Aroha Manaia

Town, New Zealand

Once upon a time there was a King called James. He had a big castle and near the castle was a lair where there was a beast. The beast was half Eagle and Half horse.
One day the beast came out of its lair and went into the castle. He stole the king’s wife, Dianna, and kept her captive in his lair.

The king decided that he had to get his beautiful wife back.

One day the king went into the beast’s lair to get his wife back. In his hands he had a poisoned arrow and a bow.
He hid so the beast couldn’t find him as he waited.
When the beast came, he pulled the arrow back to his neck and looked the beast in the eyes. He quickly let the arrow go into the beast’s hear. It flew through the air and went straight into the beast’s heart.
The king was so happy that the beast was gone but where was his wife?

He set off to find her in the beast’s lair. It was a big lair, scary and had bones scattered on the floor. He was terrified.

At the end of the tunnel there were some stairs which led up to a room. He went in and saw the floor was covered with crocodiles and his wife was hanging up by a piece of rope and was just about to be eaten by the crocodiles.
He took out his dagger and reached out to his wife and grabbed her and cut the rope with the knife.
They rushed out of the beast’s lair and went back to the castle and had a feast in celebration for finding his wife. They lived for a long time and had many children.
The people of the land were now free to go anywhere and they too lived happily ever after.
