Village, NEW Zealand.
A long time ago lived a wise man. His name was Finn and he had wings. He was an orphan. Finn lived in a cottage in a village and one day a God came down from the sky and said,
“If you kill the beast by the castle I will give you a wife to marry for love.”
Finn replied, “How will I get there?”
The god said “Fly!” and then the god disappeared.
Finn made a wooden sword but when Finn picked it up it fell a part. (Finn wasn’t good at building). The God came down again and gave him a sword. It was a beautiful shiny green sword made of a huge emerald.
Finn then flew to the castle gate, he saw the beast. The beast was half snake half horse. It was called the Mary- Ellen. It had a horse head with a body like a snake and large horse legs. Its forked tongue flicked in and out of his mouth tasting the air.
Finn opened the gate and he snuck into the castle wall. Finn saw the Mary-Ellen. Finn tried to stab its leg but the Mary- Ellen kicked Finn. Finn got very angry and stabbed the Mary-Ellen in the neck. Blood and venom sprayed everywhere while the Mary-Ellen staged and fell to the ground dead. The God came back down and said “You completed the task Finn. Go look in the castle.”
Finn saw Fiona and fall in love. Finn later married Fiona.
