Assignment: Write a two page story of your own that incorporates the style you have learned from reading The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood. The story should be based on Robin Hood, include a new adventure, and you are welcome to introduce a new character to the story as well.
It twas only now that Robin fully understood what an outlaw he really was. Robin was staring down at a poster that had been stuck to a tree. The king had put a 5 hundred dollar bounty on his head. But Robin just grinned, did they really think that a five hundred dollar bounty would stop him from his ways and finally be captured? Pshhh, no way! Just staring at that paper Robin came up with a plan. “Little John! Crew!” He called. Out from the trees swung Robin Hoods Merry men. “What tis it?” Little John asked Robin. Robin turned the paper around and showed his faithful followers. They all gasped “You have a plan right, Robin?” Asked Will Scarlet. One small grin was all they needed to see.
“Tell us, robin, tell us!”
Robin whispered his plan to his fellow lads. “I have an old freind at the printing press who can help!” Said Little John.
“Alright! Lets put this plan into action lads!”
Later at the Printing Press…..
“Big Tim! It’s so nice to see ya!” Little John said to his old freind.
“Ahh. Little John. What a nice surprise. What da ya want. I know ya want something from may.” Big Tim thundered.
Little John winced. “Are ya willing to help a freind out? I just need ya to print something for me and da crew.
Big Tim grinned. “Of course ya do. Leme see.
Little John showed him the paper Will Scarlet drew. “We need 21 ‘O these.”
As soon as Big Tim saw the picture he burst out laughing. “Anything for an old pal!”
Meanwhile at the base……
“This enough bags?” Will asked Robin.
“Ya, five should be enough. Robin replied. Fill em’ with sawdust boys!”
Later in the night…..
“Did you get em’ all printed?” Robin asked Little John.
“Yup, and just how you asked”
The next evening…..
“C’mon, Lads. Right this way. Past the guards. Be quite now.” Robin whispered to his men.
Robin was sneaking into the palace to set things right with the king tonight. “Climb in the window, boys. And be quite!” Robin pushed all his lads into the kings room. A few minutes later…
“All set, Robin! Come in now.” Little John loudly whispered and pulled Robin up into the window.
As Robin went up, all his lads climbed down except Little John. As soon as he was up Robin ran in the King’s bathroom and climbed into his bathtub. He saw all of the things set in place as he went by. His lads did a splendid job. “Ahh, Ahh, AhhCHOO!”Robin herd the king sneeze. Yup, everything was working out perfect.
“What the-” King John said. He litterly just woke up in the middle of the night and was now staring at a picture of himself on a sheet of paper. And above him it said “5 hundred dollar bounty.” “AHHH” he screamed, had the citizens finally caught on to what he was doing to them? He started sweating and got out of bed to go wash himself in the bathroom. As soon as King John entered the bathroom a bucket of syrup fell on his head. When he whipped the stickiness out of his eyes the door shut quickly behind him, and the king was left standing in dark-until a candle lit and he was staring at himself all around him. The posters were all around him-posters of him and a bounty on his head! Then the curtain of the bathtub started moving and out jumped Robin with a sheet over his head so he looked like a ghost. The King, started stepped backwards and tripped on something and fell into a pile of sawdust, to him this felt like spider crawling all over him. “AHHH!!” He screamed. Then Robin began to speak in a deep voice. “Your royal evilness, look what you have done! You have disappointed the gods of the sky and shall now be vanished from the earth!” Robin boomed.
“Wait! Please! There must be something I can do! Please, I will do anything!” King John wailed.
“Well, there is one thing you can do-” Robin said.
“Tell me, please, tell me! Anything!”
“You shall show me where you keep all of your cash and give it all to me!”
“Or you shall be banished from the earth!”
“Okay! I will. Come come.” The King said. He shakily turned the door handle and lead the ghost into his room. “Here. It’s all in there.” He said pointing to a closet.
“Why don’t you open it?”
“Okay….” The king turned the lock and presented what was in the closet to Robin. “Take it. Take it all, please!”
Robin nodded and let of an ear piercing shriek. And three men with shirts pulled over their heads ran into the room and started pulling money from the closet and tossing it out the window. Little did the king know, was that there was three men at the bottom of the window catching the money and running into the village to give to the poor. When the closet was emptied, the men and ghost just left. The king just stood shocked in the corner the rest of the night.
“Ha! I could hear his screams! He really scared! Great plan Robin!” The men all patted him on the back. All Robin could do was grin.
The more the king thought about the more it didn’t make sense. How could a ghost have feet? He saw feet, green feet-Wait! There was only one person who had green feet or more like green shoes-“Robin Hood!!!”
I hoped you liked my story! Thanks for reading!
