The Myth of the Owl

A myth submitted to the site by Jared W


A long time ago, in a forest not to far from here, a man was walking alone. The man started hearing voices “Who? Who’s there? Is someone there?” the man asked.

Suddenly a knight rode up on his horse. The villagers did not know that the knight they sent to find the man was possessed. The knight found the man and the knight stared at the man. The man’s eyes grew bigger, the man then grew a beak and said “who are you I say whoo?” Those were his last words. The man could never say any thing but whoo again, but the knight kept staring at the man until he grew feathers and wings.

The knight went back to the village and said he could not find the man, all he could find was an infernal bird looking thing but he could only find one.

The man’s wife went into the woods to find the man. It has been two days and the girl had not come back, so the villagers sent the knight back in the forest.

The girl started to hear voices just like the man, the only difference was she hid behind a tree. She started to hear a horse running. She saw the knight and relaxed again, the knight started staring at her and her eyes grew bigger she grew a beak and said “whoo? “. She then grew feathers and wings; the knight went back to the village and said he found another “this one’s a female”.

The villagers later found out that the knight was possessed so they killed the knight but the demon lives on.


And that’s how the owl came to be.
