Searing fire and clouds of smoke the dragon ignites the homes of the Greatland villagers; He leaves nothing in its path but the embers of what use to be Beowulf’s Kingdom. In the dark of the night, the dragon leaves the destruction immediately returning to the safety of his stone cold tower.
The announcement brought sorrow to the king Beowulf’s veteran heart. The king accused himself of breaking the God’s law, and that is the reason these horrific events were happening to his kingdom.
As the leader of the Greats, Beowulf believed it was his responsibility to get the revenge his people deserved. Beowulf had fought various battles before; he wasn’t going to let his kingdom suffer. The king planned to battle alone and fully armored. The Lords day would come soon, he believed if he were to leave his kingdom he should take the dragon with him.
Beowulf fully armored, bravely treaded to the rear of the traitorous stone tower. Shortly following the arrival of the king the monsters sweltering breath shot out, followed by the dragon itself. Regardless to the dragons abilities with his sword in his hand Beowulf stood in front ready to battle the ferocious beast.
The dragon thus shot out blistering fire directly to the king. Beowulf’s armor protected him shortly, but then his armor began to melt from the scorching flames. Beowulf took his blade and jabbed on the dragons’ scaly hide. Although his sword had help him win sever battles before, this time it snapped into the monsters skin only drawing blood. Consequently the dragon sprouted more flames and charged at the king causing him to fall back and allowing the dragon to bit his neck.
For this purpose all the frightened warriors except one had fled the scene. Wiglaf Wexstan dashed to the scene to fight in the kings’ name. He used his sword and once more stabbed the dragon. This time successfully piercing through his scales and killing the monster; he continued to cut the dragon in half for his king. Then his dying king asked him to complete his last wish, which was to find the hidden treasure in the tower and bring it to him. Once wiglaf made it back with the treasure and handed it to him King Beowulf passed away.
