ROBIN HOOD

 

When Robin Hood lived in his fathers house, he often met a girl. Her

name was Marian. She lived with her father not far from Robins house.

They walked in the forest and sometimes went hunting together. They

liked each other very much and one day Robin asked Marian to marry him.

But just at that time the Normans came and killed Robins father, burnt

down his house and took away everything he had. Robin did not see Marian

for a long time. He wrote a letter, where he told her about his father

and their home. I shall always love you, he wrote, but the life in

the forest is not for you, so I shall never see you again, good-bye!

 

Marian was very sad when she read Robins letter. She cried all day

long. At last she decided to go to Sherwood Forest and look for Robin.

 

It was a long way to Sherwood Forest and Marian was afraid to travel so

far alone. She dressed herself like a knight and went off to look for

Robin. One day Robin dressed himself as a Norman knight and went to

Nottingham. On his way through the forest he met another knight. .

Whats your name and where are you going? They could not see each

others faces because their heads and faces were covered by their

vizors. Marian (for it was she) was afraid to answer. Ah, said Robin,

you do not want to answer. Then fight. Robin was taller and stronger

than Marian, but she fought bravely. Marian got a wound in one arm,

Robin got a wound in his cheek. Robin felt sorry for the young knight

who was fighting so well. Stop! Stop! cried he. You will be one of my

men. Robin forgot that he was dressed like o Norman knight and spoke in

his language and in his voice. When Marian heard Robins voice she

dropped her sword and took off the vizor. Her face was pale but she

smiled.
