"Hrunting may not hurt you but this ancient sword will!"
After fighting back and forth for hours in the underwater cave, Beowulf finally killed Grendel's mother with an ancient sword made by the giants. After killing her a bright white light emitted from her disintegrating the sword and Grendel's mother, leaving only the hilt of the sword.While swimming back to the surface he killed all of the monsters in the lake and he saw Grendel's corps. To make sure he was dead Beowulf cut of his head and carried it back to the surface with him to his loyal warriors. He had his warriors carry the head while he held the hilt of the sword to bring to Hrothgar. After arriving back to Herot, Hrothgar called for a big feast and even more treasures to be brought out for Beowulf. Beowulf gave Hrothgar the sword hilt and Grendels head to show that he had killed Grendel and Grendel's mother. Sadly it was time for Beowulf and his men to return home to Geat since they had finished their mission.
"It's good to be home after all of that adventure isn't it Wiglaf?"
"It really is."
"Beowulf we are so glad that you succeeded on your mission. Let's head inside I have so much to ask you."
"Higlac, we have returned from the Danes after killing Grendel. Sadly we lost Hondshew to Grendel before I could kill him. We also killed Grendel's Mother but I will tell you all about this over the feast."
Higlac eventually died in battle and his son Herdred became king because Beowulf wouldn't become king while Herdred was alive. Herdred died while fighting the Swedes and Beowulf became king. For 50 years there was peace for the Geats. Until one slave stole a jeweled cup from the dragon waking it up from it's slumber. It terrorized the Geats until Beowulf went out to kill it even though he was close to 70 years old. He went to it's tower and challenged it to a fight. The dragons molten breath had melted his shield and his sword wouldn't work on its scales. When he was very close to dying Wiglaf a faithful soldier that hadn't run when the others had, came to his rescue encouraging him while fighting the dragon. The dragon managed to stab Beowulf in the neck with his poisoned claw right when Beowulf cut it in half with dagger. With the dragon dead and Beowulf close to dying he said his last words. Beowulf wanted Wiglaf to become king and a big tower on the cliff side to show his power and for people to remember him by.
" I am now king since that was Beowulf's last request! We must now prepare for battle against swedes because they will think we are helpless. Lets show them that they are wrong!"
