While everyone was happy and settled in Herot, with no more fear about monsters, a young servant traveled to make his master happy. He planned to steal a bejeweled cup from a sleeping dragon's home.
He awoke the dragon and in an uproar, the enraged dragon traveled to the peaceful village and burned down all of the houses. Beowolf was immediately on the case and soon went with all of his best warriors to the tower in which the dragon was hidden.
AHHHH THE DRAGON!
You're the only one that stayed, Wiglaf.
I can't leave you to kill this dragon on your own. As a warrior, it is my duty to be brave and protect the citizens of Herot.
When they had reached the tower, every warrior except Wiglaf ran for their lives. Beowolf and Wiglaf were left to fight the dragon all on their own.
So they fought. Beaten up and tired, they desperately attempted to kill this beast. With much difficulty, they finally got the dragon to burn itself which weakened it dramatically, however Beowolf was also injured badly.
As injured as Beowolf was, he still fought on. It seemed that the sword had failed him again and he quickly pulled out his dagger, slicing the dragon in half. Beowolf had saved the village yet again, but it had cost him severly. His last dying wish was told to Wiglaf, he wanted a tower to be named after him.
They all mourned over the loss of Beowolf, grateful of everything he had done to protect them. They did, in fact, name a tower in honor of him and his legacy lived on. Beowolf was never forgotten
