This week for DJ's Story of the World Ancient Times lesson he learned about Enkidu and Gilgamesh. This is a fairy tale and two of the extended activities was to draw a picture of what he imagined Enkidu looked like, and to write another adventure for them to go on. Below is DJ's adventure for Enkidu and Gilgamesh.
Once upon a time there was a man named Gilgamesh and a halve animal-halve human creature named Enkidu.They use to be enemies but then they became friends.One day,in the city of Uruk,Gilgamesh and Enkidu were relaxing when they got a message from a trapped father and his 2 young daughters.It said "Help,if you are reading this message it means me and my children are trapped in the Minotaurs Domain.It is really spooky here and the Minotaur is relentlessly trying to find us.If we don't get out of here by April 2nd we will be doomed to be his slaves,forever!Please help,
Jeremiah the 3rd."
"Oh no" shouted Gilgamesh "Today is March 23rd,and the Minotaurs Domain is a 20 day trip." "We'll never make it in time!" shouted Gilgamesh panicking.Then,as it seemed that all was lost a man came by with the 2 fastest horses in Uruk.What a coincidence,Gilgamesh thought in his head."I don't need a horse,I'm halve horse!" said Enkidu.So off they went into the wilderness.They traveled 3 days through the desert,stayed for 2 days in a strange little city,and helped a family get food for 3 days.They only had 5 days left to get to the Minotaurs Domain before the family became slaves forever!2 days later they arrived at the Minotaurs Domain.Gilgamesh got out his 2 feet long sword while Enkidu got out his arrow.They ventured into the big maze like building.They were attacked by skeletons,the Minotaurs minions."Helooooooo,Jeremiah you there!?" Shouted Gilgamesh and Enkidu.Then,on top of a big rock they saw it.The Minotaur was staring rite at them!He was a strange bull human creature,with 2 big horns and a 5 feet tall sword.Gilgamesh looked in horror,for they have never seen a sword so big! "Whats wrong,scared?" shouted the Minotaur confidently. "I'm gonna chop you two into sushi,then ill go find that Jeremiah and his two little runts!'Shouted the Minotaur. "O no your not,we're gonna end this here and now!" shouted Gilgamesh.Gilgamesh and the Minotaur charged at each other while Enkidu went to go find the family.Gilgamesh and the Minotaur were doing a fight to the death match.Just as Gilgamesh knocked the Minotaur onto the ground Enkidu found the family.Enkidu got the family out safely,but then he noticed Gilgamesh was out cold on the ground.The Minotaur was raising his sword to end it!But before he could swing,Enkidu shot a arrow straight through the Minotaurs heart.A black gas appeared and the Minotaur screamed "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" as the gas got thicker.After a few minutes the gas cleared and the Minotaur was gone,but something else had appeared,a young man with a leather jacket and pants on.Once they got back to the village the man explained everything."I didn't want to kill you or the family,a demon did.He was controlling my body and making me turn into the dreaded Minotaur.When you shot the arrow into my heart the demon perished back into ****.Thats what the gas was." Gilgamesh and Enkidu understood."You still haven't told us your name.' said Gilgamesh."My name is Ronald,Ronald Neilson." "Well,that seems to rap up this strange crime."After a few days of calmness,everything turned back to normal.The end.
That's my story of Enkidu and Gilgamesh Against the Evil Minotaur.The End. P.S.,this is a story that I made up.
