Saving My Village Essay

787 words - 4 pages

My village is very small. It is surrounded by the Dark Forest. We call it the Dark Forest because of all the evil creatures that have found homes there. On the other side of this forest is where the evil King Cole lives. He is a very wealthy, greedy, cruel man that has everything he could ever want, but never shares anything with our village. He’s been ruling our village for twenty-five years, and lives in a magnificent castle.

Slowly, I walk off the trail and find an enormous tree with a nice little nook carved out in the large trunk of the tree. This is the perfect place to sleep. After getting settled into my nook, I quickly fall asleep.

I am awakened by the sounds of birds chirping and rays of sun shining through the trees. I know I have a long journey ahead of me, approximately nine miles until I reach the castle. I know that all of the creatures will be sleeping during the day so this is my safest time to travel. Before I start my journey, I eat a small piece of bread, gather my things and...
