Will, Age 13, Peoria, IL
Once upon a time there was a great blacksmith
better than all in the seven kingdoms. One day a noble man hired the
blacksmith to weld a very famous sword back together, but that same day
the forge was robbed. The blacksmith had nothing but the sword he had
kept very safe. He hid in a cave on the outskirts of the town. He was
able through favors to get a hammer and an anvil. He was just able to
hammer the two parts of the sword together. Then he noticed a marking on
the back of the hammer, but he ignored it and threw the hammer aside.
Then he went to make the long journey to the noble’s house. One year
passed, and then the blacksmith fell down at the noble’s door and passed
out. The maid found him and took him to the noble. As soon as the noble
touched the sword he was corrupted. He never let it leave his sight or
his hand. He would sit in his chair for days just staring at it. Then
one day he disappeared. He was nowhere to be found. The sword was a
great story passed through the noble’s family. Until one day the noble’s
great-great-great-great-grandson followed the blacksmith’s footsteps,
and found in the same cave the blacksmith welded the sword the noble
trying to tear it open. That’s when the grandson looked at the hammer,
studied the hammer, and noticed the marking was a pentagram! The noble
had been trying to free the evil soul inside the sword.
