but a little ways away a horrid beast named grendel lurked in his damp, dirty home. The more he heard the villagers joy the more his hatred for them grew.
hrothgar made a hall for his people where they feasted to their hearts content without knowledge of the horrors to come.
for when everyone was asleep grendel sneaked his way in. then he brutally attacked them killing a large number of people.
night after night the beast returned until thee villigars didnt feel safe in their own homes, their own beds. eventually most of them had to retreat to other villlages nearby leaving this once joyful and vibrant place near empty.
