Once upon a time, in a land far away, there lived a massive monster. He was at least 12 feet tall. With a mop of red hair and a beard, he carried a mighty Axe in his hand.
Every year, on the same day, at the same time the monster would walk down the mountains to stand outside the fort wall, terrorizing the residents.
“Come send me the bravest man, and I will fight him,” the monster would shout, towering over the wall and waving his axe menacingly. ” Send me someone to fight or i will knock down your fort wall and kill everyone with my axe.”
And every year, the gate in the fort wall would open slowly and fearfully, and one poor, valiant soul would walk out to face the foe and certain death. ‘ is this the best you can do?’ the monster would laugh mockingly.
Not one person even managed to draw his sword, before the monster would crush them with his mighty fist, and chop them into the pieces with the axe.
‘One day a young prince arrived in the town.
Why does everyone here look so frightened and sad?’ He asked a fellow traveler.
you haven’t seen the monster yet’. replied the traveler and told him the tale. The young prince decided to accept the challenge of the monster. later when monster arrived he was waiting for him.
After hearing the challenge of the monster prince came out of the fort. For a moment, they stood and faced each other. Although he was a long way away from him, the young prince was instantly struck by the sheer size and shocking appearance of his opponent.
But summoning up all his courage, he started to walk towards the monster, brandishing his sword, and never taking his eyes off that dreadful face with red hair and beard.
Suddenly, he realized that as he was walking towards the monster, rather than appearing larger-monster began to shrink before his very eyes. He stopped and stared.
The monster was only 6 feet tall.
He walked closer to him then stopped and stared.
Now the monster was only 3 feet tall. He continued walking, by now monster was only one feet tall.
The young prince took his sword and plunged it into the monster’s heart. As monster lay dying on the ground, the young prince bent down and whispered to him,’ Who are you?’
With his dying breath, monster replied,’ My name is FEAR.’
