  • The Ordeal
  • Let's go Beowulf, don't mess this up!
  • We won!
  • The Reward
  • During the party celebrating Grendel's defeat, Beowulf finds out about an even bigger threat, Grendel's Mother. "The night after Grendel's death, his mother, a monster who lives at the bottom of a cold dark lake, goes to Herot to avenge her son's death."
  • Beowulf goes into the lake to kill Grendel's Mother. It was harder than he expected, but he managed to do it with the help of a sword forged by giants and takes her head as a trophy. "He drew it from its scabbard, broke the chain on its hilt and then, savage, now angry... struck with all the strength, caught her in the neck and cut it through, broke bones and all."
  • Beowulf takes the reward King Hrothgar gives him. He takes the hilt of the sword he used to kill Grendel's Mom along with bountiful treasure back to Geatland. "In recognition of Beowulf's heroic services to Denmark, Hrothgar proclaims the Danes and the Geats to be allies."
  • Beowulf the great
  • When Beowulf gets to Geatland he is crowned King. And years later he hears of a dragon who has been awakened when stolen from and is now causing chaos. He recruits men, including his cousin Wiglaf, to fight. "A king, when a dragon awoke from its darkness and dreams and brought terror to his people."
  • The Road Back
  • Fighting off the dragon is a very hard thing to do. He could breath fire and was very strong. But eventually Beowulf gets in a good hit and overpowers the dragon. But he gets bitten and is at Death's Door. But luckily, Wiglaf finishes it off. Beowulf dies. "The old man's mouth was silent, spoke no more, had said as much as it could; He would sleep in the fire soon. His soul left his flesh, flew to glory."
  • The Resurrection
  • After the fight the Geats set up a very special funeral for Beowulf. They send him off on a boat full of treasure off to sea. They promise to forever share his story of bravery and tell of his honor. "And so Beowulf's followers Rode, mourning there beloved leader, Crying that no better king had ever lived, no prince so mild, no man so open to his people, so deserving of praise."
  • Return with the Elixir
