Beowulf's battle with Grendel
Grendel had emerged from the dark and murky marsh looking for a human meal at the Herot. Hrothgar lived at the Herot, and Grendel had visited there before, so he knows the very way to his royal room. He finds his room and very gently and quietly tore the door open, ripping the door hinges apart. Grendel was very excited, however, he did not know that this would be his very last meal.
Grendel quietly came and ate the first Geat, ripping him apart and drinking his blood from his veins. When he went to the next person, he found himself unable to move. Grendel saw Beowulf bendhing his claws back! Grendel's mind was filled with fear and nothing but fear. He no longer wanted to feed on people anymore. Instead, he wanted to run away andn hide.
Grendel was very afraid, so afraid that he wanted to flee from Beowulf and hide, but he couldn't escape. He tried everything he could to escape, but he was trapped. A battle furiously started and the Herot was getting beat because of it. The Herot was desperately trying to stay up because of Grendel and Beowulf bashing and banging against the walls, but it stood firm.
Beowulf's duty was to contain the horrible monster and to kill it. Beowulf did have some backup if he ever need it, but he knew that all of their efforts would be gone to waste. Even the hardest iron sword made by man could not even pierce through the skin of Grendel. Grendel had a spell cast on all the men's weapons that made every sword blunt against him.
Grendel is still struggling heavily to fight for his life. Grendel felt that his strength and power was leaving him very slowly but surely, and there was nothing he could do about it. Even though his strength and power was very slow depleting, his hatred for Beowulf grew stronger and stronger.
Grendel twisted and his tendons and ligaments in his shoulder snapped, while his bones split and snapped as well. Grendel could not do anything amymoe to fight back, so the battle is now over. Beowulf is victorious and had been given the glory for defeating Grendel.
