Robin Hood Legend

We can't always think of ourselves, sometimes we have to help those who do not have the same means as us. Let me tell you a story of kindness.

This is the story from a long, long time ago in Nottingham England. When King Richard ruled the country, his younger brother Prince John was a corrupt Prince who cared for the State while the King was absent due to wars. Prince John was unkind to the common people of Nottingham and had no consideration for the poor under his charge; the rich became richer while the poor became poorer.

The poor had no savior to save them other than Robin Hood or the hooded thief as he was properly known. Robin Hood had a trusted friend called Little John Robin Hood who would rob wealthy merchants and Prince's companies who carried heavy taxes collected from the poor as they crossed the Sherwood Forest which was Robin Hood's home. On the way to the Prince's treasury and he would distribute the loot amongst the poor.

His generosity earned him the name 'Prince of Thieves' amongst the common people. There have many rewards that were announced by the Sheriff for his capture. But this did not stop Robin from doing his good deeds. One day, when Robin Hood and his friends had robbed the Prince's caravan, again the Prince called the Sheriff of Nottingham to the palace and told him this is the last time Robin Hood has humiliated Sheriff! What are your troops doing? Why haven't they caught that thief yet? We do everything, Sir I assure you, we will be with him soon. You should! Otherwise, someone else will be punished.

The Sheriff made a new plan with his men; he decided to announce an archery competition to be held in Nottingham. The winner would be announced as the best archer in Nottingham, and also win a kiss from the Maiden Marian. One day Robin Hood’s friend Tuck came to visit him and ask him, have you heard of the archery competition that the Sheriff has announced for tomorrow? Robin replied yes, we have Friar. Then the men replied that I think Robin shouldn't go to it, it is a trap laid by the Sheriff.

All of England knows that Robin Hood is the best archer by far, Robin doesn't need to go and prove anything there. Robin said that you are worrying too much little John, lighten up, we will go and have some fun tomorrow. To ensure that no one recognizes us, we'll wear disguises. And so the next day Robin Hood and his friends wore disguises and went to the competition. Just as Robin Hood had predicted that no one would know him, it soon became Robin Hood's turn to shoot arrows. He took the first shot at the board and hit the bull's eye! The crowd cheered for this unknown archer then he took another arrow and shot it again this one too hit the bull's eye! The crowd cheered louder.

The cheering caught the Sheriff's attention. And he turned to see what the matter there was. By now Robin had drawn his third arrow and taken a shot. It too hit the Bull's eye, when the fourth arrow also did the same. Sheriff realized something that is no stranger! That is Robin Hood. No one can shoot four arrows in a row like that! Sheriff ordered grabs him, men!

The whole crowd broke into frenzy as the Sheriff's men arrested Robin Hood and tell them off with his head! But Little John moved like a lightning flash and grabbed the Prince and put a knife to his throat. And told to Sheriff that release to Robin Hood immediately, the Sheriff's men had no choice except to let go of Robin Hood. The prince of Thieves and his friends shouted and came out of the shooting range. Robin Hood climbed the audience tower and stole a kiss from the Maiden Marian.

They back at the Sherwood Forest Robin Hood and his friends got together and celebrated. His friends said to Robin that you were right; Robin Hood today was a lot of fun. The Sheriff had this coming.

I am sure you surprised Maiden Marian, too! Well, not as surprised as the Prince is going to be when he finds out that we stole 4 bags of gold from his treasury during the Sheriff's archery competition!
