KARTH AND THE CHALLENGES
Long ago and far away there lived a prince in a small village. A single hill stood behind the village. Atop the hill there lay a castle.
“Father! Something tells me that the village is going to be destroyed.”
“Heh? What?” said the king.
“Ugh! What are the chances of it anyways! I’m going down to the stream” said prince Karth.
The young prince walked down the hill, through the village and sat next to the stream. Karth looked into the water like he had done many times before but to his surprise he saw something he had never seen before… Karth reached in and touched the item. He felt cold stone. Karth reached in and pulled the relic out of the water.
Suddenly Karth got sucked into the relic! He saw a sight: the village was on fire! The only thing standing was the castle. Karth got thrown out of the relic. He gasped. He told the first person he could find- a very old elder taking a walk through the village.
“Sir! Sir! Tell everyone you can!”
“What?” shrieked the old man.
“The village is going to be destroyed!”
“Impossible,” said the old man.
“No really!” screamed Karth.
“Mmm. Mmm,” hummed the old man.
“Arrgh!” said Karth.
The next person Karth found was a town warrior.
“Sir! Sir! Please listen to me!”
“The village is going to be destroyed!”
“Your majesty, please calm down. I assure you your father has the town in complete safety,” said the warrior.
“No!” shouted prince Karth. “You don’t understand. It’s a fire that’s going to burn down the village!”
“Don’t worry,” said the warrior, walking away.
Karth sighed. He ran up to his castle. “Father! Mother!” he called.
“What is it?” asked the King.
“When I was down at the stream I found a relic!” said the prince.
Just then his mother walked in.
“Calm down dear,” she said. “Now what do you need to tell us?” she asked.
“What about it?” asked the king.
“It’s going to be destroyed!”
“Now now, let’s not overreact,” said the queen. “Give it some time and I promise it will all pass by.”
The prince got enraged. That night he took his father’s best white stallion, packed his bags, and ran away! He traveled for many days and many nights, until he found a large castle standing in a grassy field. The prince got back on his horse and headed for the castle. When Karth finally got to the castle gates, he saw a beautiful princess sitting in the grass. Prince Karth rode towards her.
“Oh hello,” she said. “My name is Luci, Princess Luci,” she exclaimed, twirling her hair. “And you are?” she asked.
“Karth,” he answered. “Prince Karth”
Luci smiled. “Come in,” she said, leading Prince Karth into the castle.
The prince stayed at the castle for two nights. Then he got up enough courage to take Luci’s hand in marriage.
Karth went to Luci’s father and asked, “Could I marry your daughter?”
“Hmmm,” said the king, studying prince Karth hard. “You must beat my tasks,” replied the king.
“What?” asked Karth.
“No prince is good enough to marry my Luci until they defeat all three of my tasks,” said the king once more.
The prince got down on his knee and said, “I take your challenge.”
“Excellent!” bellowed the king.
The very next day the first task began. Karth was led out to a stadium filled with townspeople. The mascot explained the first task. It was simple to explain. All he needed to say was, “You’re slaying a dragon.”
Prince Karth froze at the sound of this. He slowly walked out of his tent. Then a dragon flew out from behind a rock. Karth grabbed for his sword but was too late. The dragon blew a big puff of fire! Karth jumped behind a rock. The flame split in two and went around the rock. Then “crack!” the rock split in half. Karth leaped up and grabbed his sword! The dragon flew up in to the air and dove at him! Karth jumped out of the way! But he let go of his sword! The dragon plunged at him with its sharp claws! Karth rolled out of the way. The dragon tried again but failed! Karth jumped over a rock and found his sword. He ducked down behind the rock. Then Karth raised himself up to his full height and threw his sword at the dragon, then ducked down behind the rock again. He heard a roar! Karth slowly stood up. The dragon lay on the ground covered in blood. The sword was stabbed in its back! Karth threw both hands up in the air. The crowd thundered with applause.
Two days later the second task began. This time the mascot was different. Karth got led out to the sparkling ocean behind the castle. The mascot gave Karth a vial of dark liquid to drink. As he drank the juice, the mascot explained the second task.
“This liquid allows you to breathe under water for an hour, not a second more! You will be diving in the water to find a golden egg lost in the ocean. Once you have it, bring it up here. Good luck!” called the mascot.
Karth walked out from his tent. The cannon sounded! He dove into the water, swimming lower and lower. A huge bed of seaweed was just ten feet below him. He soon was gliding at the bottom of the ocean. Something sparkled off in the distance. Karth swam as fast as he could. He clutched the golden egg in his hand, swimming upward.
Just then he gulped in a bunch of water! Karth held is breath and shut his eyes. But Karth could not hold his breath any longer. He had to take a breath. He breathed heavily…to his surprise he was breathing in air! Karth opened his eyes. He was out in front of the stands. Karth swam toward the king and handed the golden egg to him. The king raised his eyebrows.
Three days later Karth started the third task. This time Karth had the same mascot as the last time. He was led into the field in front of the woods. Prince Karth already knew what he was doing when he saw the sword in the stone. He walked to the stone and put his hands on the sword. He pulled with all his might! The sword did not budge. He tried again. This time the crowd went silent. Karth pulled and pulled but the sword did not move.
Prince Karth shut his eyes and took a deep breath. Karth yanked at the sword! He felt no more resistance. Karth opened his eyes. The crowd roared with applause! The sword was completely out of the stone!
The king came down to Karth. “Well, I guess you can marry my daughter.”
Karth smiled and said “Thank you.”
Karth headed back to the castle to tell Luci the good news. When he finally got to her, he remembered.
“My village!” he said out loud.
“What about it?” asked Luci.
“It’s going to be burnt down by a fire!”
“Oh my, let’s go!” Luci said.
Karth and Luci got on to Prince Karth’s horse and rode back to his village. It was on fire!
Karth got off his horse and ran to the stream. The relic was sitting beside it. Karth got sucked in again. He met with a king that had ruled here many years ago.
This is what he said: “There is a prophecy. When the prince finds his bride he must kiss her and the village will not be destroyed.”
Karth was then thrown back out of the relic. He ran to Luci and kissed her! There was a loud crack and the village was just how it was when Karth left.
Two months later, Karth and Luci got married and lived happily ever after.
