Longhorn’s tale

There wasn’t any connectivity through roads and no means of transport from his village to the nearby hospital.One had to pass through the forests to reach the other side. He had to visit his ailing mother.The village folk ensured they reached their destinations before dusk. It was rumored that a giant inhabited and nobody lived to tell the tale.

He was asked to duel with the giant. Sensing defeat, he escaped between the legs of the giant .

Always mocked at for being puny and untrue to his name, he received a hero’s welcome,

Hail Longhorn!Brain is mightier than brawn.

    1. Thank you for the wonderful compliment Mam. Actually I wanted to elaborate on the tale, but there’s limit on the number of words. Actually, these prompts remind me of my English composition classes, good old days.
