Beowulf was an extremely brave man. Even in his old age, he was determined to avenge those who were savagely killed by a dragon.
Beowulf rose and headed off to the dragon's lair. He was confident in defeating incredibly dangerous creatures. This new pilgrimage was nothing new for him. No coward could ever take on such a challenge.
Beowulf finally reached the dragon's lair and felt the dragon's hot breath from the entrance. He released a battle cry, unsheathed his sword, and was ready to kill the powerful monster who killed his Geats.
Beowulf and the mighty dragon battled ferociously. The creature melted away at Beowulf's shield with its scorching flames. Beowulf managed to stab the beast, but its scaly hides were too strong to penetrate any further and his sword broke as a result.
Beowulf found himself in terrible trouble. His sword became useless as the dragon continued to fight him in rage. The only courageous soldier who was brave enough to stand up for him was Wiglaf. He rushed in to kill the beast, but before he could get to the dragon, it pierced its horns into Beowulf's neck. Wiglaf stood up for his king and striked the dragon, and Beowulf delivered the final, critical blow with a dagger.
The blood drawn from the dragon's blow to Beowulf's neck was critical. Beowulf knew he was going to die, so he urged Wiglaf to bring him some of the dragon's treasures to soften his death. Wiglaf brought him everything he could carry, and he returned to find his king suffering in pain. Beowulf was thankful for the treasures, and urged Wiglaf to build a huge tower in his name. That was the last thing he ever asked for.
