Many years ago, there lived an evil queen called Malena. She was cruel, mean and savage. The worst bit was that she sent one baby boy and one baby girl every full moon to be eaten by Arachne! It was a horrible, hideous and dreadful creature. It lived in a deep dark cave. It was half spider half human.
Greta (the hero) was a fearless, brave and bold warrior. One dusty day, she offered to go to slay the nasty beast. The queen was very surprised, she said ” You may… but you shall return with the bones of Arachne to prove that you have killed the beast.” Greta agreed.
On the way she met Prince Jed. He said , “I will lend you my legendary bow and arrow if you pay me ten pounds.”
Greta entered the spooky, eerie and misty cave, through the mist she could see blood dripping from the ceiling, skulls on the floor and webs on the wall. Suddenly, she heard a high hiss, Arachne dropped from the ceiling, Greta backed up. Then she shot the only arrow she had into Arachne’s heart. The monster lay… DEAD! Dead, still and silent. Everything paused…
Then after a few minutes Greta fled from the cave, dashed to the shore and met Prince Jed. She gave him his money and they sailed away living happily ever after.
