Once upon a time there lived a monster named Grendel who loved to eat humans. Many Danish died at his claws and powerful jaws no one ever dared to face the powerful beast until Beowulf. A man who boasted to kill the beast and set out to do so with his men to avenge the many deaths.
Agreeing to the plan to pretend to sleep and then take Grendel by surpise the men get ready to put the plan into motion.
we did it he's dead
Unable to follow the plan the men actually feel asleep leaving only Beowulf to do the plan. Pretending to sleep as he stuck out his arm to tempt Grendel he waited.
The monster hungry took Beowulf by the arm only for Beowulf to hook onto his shoulder holding on tight. His men waking up from the ruckus used there swords to try to pierce the monster, but sadly having no such luck. Beowulf held on though, ripping with all his strength the monsters ligaments from his shoulder down.
Finally pulling of the arm. The monster ran back to it's cave where it slowly died. Beowulf and his men smiled with glee at the avenged deaths and promise they did keep.
Back home the arm of Grendel hung from the wall as a reminder, but if only they knew about his know angered mother.
