Saint George

In Libya there was a town called silence. Near the town was
a pond, and the pond was the home for a dangerous dragon. Over and over againarmies tried to slay the dragon but it did not work.
This dragon had poisonous breath so that whenever he went near the walls of the city people would die Soone day they had a meeting with the council and they figured the only way to
keep the town safe was to feed the dragon with sheep, this went on for while until
there was no more sheep to be found. Then the people drew lots .  So one day they had a meeting with the
council and they figured the only way to keep the town safe was to feed the
dragon with sheep, this went on for a while until there was no more sheep to be
found.

So from then on they drew lots like drawing the shortest
straw, and each day a man or woman had to give one of their cattle in order to
spare their precious city, no matter how rich or poor it was compulsory. And on
one particular dreadful day the princess was chose dawn by lot, the king was
terrified and begged for her life to be spared,
He bribed with silver gold and his kingdom, but they have him eight days
to prepare, on those eight days he mourned. The people stared to come up to him
and they asked him why he was desperate to spare his daughter, yet everyday his
subjects got sacrificed. So the king agreed and dressed the princess I his
richest clothes and thence tells his daughter how he regrets how he couldn’t
see her grow up and live life. They both wept And the daughter asked for a
blessing.

were heathen but in Cappadocia there was a young Christian named George whom
was only 13, had a vision to go to Libya so Libya is where he went. So he rode
on his horse and when he reached Libya He came to the place where he princess
was weeping bitterly. He asked her what the matter was and she said to him
“good youth , leave now so you shall not die here

He told her not to fear and she begged him to go, she
perceives he had a kind and noble heart, he told her he would stay and listen,
she told him her story and he said to her to be of good courage because Jesus
had sent him to protect her.

kind and noble heart, he told her he would stay and listen, she told him her
story and he said to her to be of good courage because Jesus had sent him to

The princess kept insisting that he should go but he had no
fear, the dreaded moment came and the dragon appeared. He got out his sword and
stabbed it in the neck, he started walking into the city and the crowds of
people that were watching feared and began to run away but George calmed them.
They went to where the king was and George cut off the dragons head. The people
hailed him as their deliverer but he insisted they give the praise to god.
Everyone was baptized and when George side they named him saint George. And he

Pegasus

The life of Pegasus is known to be started after his mother
Perseus was decapitated. The Pegasus is known as a majestic mythical creature.
They also have the ability to fly.

Pegasus was a beautiful creature, and people were lucky to see one.

Unicorns

Unicorns were also mythical creatures but they had a horn on
their head and are different Pegasus’s as they don’t have wings. It is sbelieved
they have telepathic abilities and are also a creature of the gods. Their horn
has healing power so If you were a sick person and found a unicorn and stabbed
its horn into you, you could be healed but as soon as their horn was inside you
healing you, they would die almost immediately the only accept ion was if the
unicorn deemed you worthy enough it would use the tip of its horn still healing
you, but Not having to sacrifice its life for you.
