Each man was clad in Lincoln green, and a fine show they made, seated upon the sward beneath that fair, spreading tree. Then one of them, with his mouth full, called out to Robin, "Hulloa, where goest thou, little lad, with thy one-penny bow and thy farthing shafts? Why, boy, thy mother's milk is yet scarce dry upon thy lips, and yet thou pratest of standing up with good stout men at Nottingham butts, thou who art scarce able to draw one string of a two-stone bow.
And well thou knowest that no target is nigh to make good thy wager. I'll hold you twenty marks that, by leave of Our Lady, I cause the best hart among them to die. I wager that thou causest no beast to die, with or without the aid of Our Lady. High leaped the noblest hart of all the herd, only to fall dead, reddening the green path with his heart's blood.
The speaker was a big man, nearly two metres tall. Can I fight him - and win? I think I am going to do some fishing. Robin couldn't win. He knew that after a minute or two. The man wasn't very fast but he was very strong. So Robin quickly thought of a plan. Robin quickly kicked the man's legs as hard as he could. The big man was very angry — but he didn't fall. He kicked Robin, and Robin fell off the bridge into the water. The big man laughed. But Robin was not there. He was a long way from the bridge.
Then Will Scarlet arrived. He will have to fight me now! So what is your name, friend? And what are you doing in my forest? I came here to find brave Robin Hood.
But first, I think, I will throw you in the river again! Please, don't do it again! Are you really Robin Hood? My name is John Little and I want to be one of your men. Come to our forest home, Little John! One cold but sunny day in January, a man came slowly over the Great North Road on an old horse.
The snow on the forest trees shone in the winter sunshine. But the man did not look at the forest. He looked only at the road in front of him. The man looked up.
Are you afraid? But he cannot help me. Robin Hood and his men love dangerous adventures. Come and eat with us! Tell us your problems! First, they gave him food and drink. He was very hungry. Thank you for this good food. With a little gold I can help many poor families. But I cannot give it to you. I am going to St Mary's Abbey.
This money is for the abbot. Perhaps he will wait another year, but I think not. I think that he will ask for my lands - and my home too.
Tell us your name, friend, and tell us your story too. Perhaps we can help. His name was Richard of Lee, and his son killed a man in a fight. The man died, and the Sheriff of Nottingham's men took the boy away. Did he ask for money? This happened last year. Now I have to pay the abbot. He wants 13 one thousand, one hundred pounds - and I can only give him six hundred. But first, let's try something Tell him that you do not have the money.
Ask him to help you. Ask him to wait another year! On the table there were bags of gold. He went to the window and looked out. I think my friend, the sheriff, is right. Sir Richard cannot pay my one thousand, one hundred pounds. So this evening, I will be Lord of his house and his lands! Do you have my money? I hope you will be kind. Next year I want my money now Pay me the one thousand, one hundred pounds, or your house and lands will be mine this evening!
It is a lot of money for me. Next year I hope Do you have my gold -yes or no? This good man and his family will sleep in their home tonight.
The abbot's face was very red. He opened his mouth and then closed it again.
Reading on different devices
What could he say? Later, in the forest, Little John told the story to Robin Hood and the other men. But the abbot will tell the sheriff, and the sheriff will also be angry. They are dangerous men. Sir Richard has to be careful. Lords and ladies and the people from the villages came. They ate and drank. This year, the Sheriff of Nottingham came too, with fifty of his men. He watched Marian carefully.
I know he will come today. Then my men can catch him. A man went to Marian and spoke to her. She smiled and gave him her hand. That's Robin Hood! Take him! The sheriff's men took out their swords and moved through the dancers. Suddenly ten of the dancers ran for their swords too. They were, of course, Robin's men, and a great fight began.
Robin's men were better fighters than the sheriff's. Marian wanted to fight too, but her father stopped her. Put down that sword! I am sorry about Robin — no other man will marry you. You are only interested in fighting! I will marry her, then she will help me find Robin Hood. Lord Fitzwalter watched them through a window. He was not happy. Please go to your room. I will speak to him. He put his hand on Lord Fitzwalter's arm and smiled.
Perhaps one day a husband will I like a strong woman - and Marian is also very beautiful. I will be a good husband. I have lands, money - and important friends. He was now very unhappy. Marian wanted to marry Robin and no other man - he knew that.
I will talk to Marian but He can be your friend too. Think carefully! I am afraid of the prince. Please marry the sheriff, and forget Robin Fitzooth. I will not marry the sheriff, but he will be angry with me, not you.
Tomorrow I will leave the house very early and stay with my uncle. The sheriff will come late in the morning. Tell your men to look for me. Look in every room. Be very angry.
Then the sheriff will think that you know nothing! Go then to my brother's house. But who will go with you? He fights too well for a churchman. People say that the Abbot of St Mary's hates him. The friar had to leave the abbey. He is a greedy man. Friar Tuck is greedy too - he eats more than ten men!
But he is a brave man and very strong. Yes, take Friar Tuck with you. The friar took his staff and Marian took her bow and arrows. Then they left the house and walked on the Great North Road through the forest.
After some hours, the friar suddenly left the road and sat down under a tree. Stay here. I will take your staff and my bow and arrow, and catch some animals.
The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood
She saw a deer. Very quietly, she took out an arrow and put it to her bow. The man spoke very loudly. The deer jumped at the noise and ran away into the trees. Marian was very angry.
She turned to the speaker but he wore a big hood. She couldn't see his face. The Sheriff of Nottingham killed two men last week because they caught a deer. Leave now - or fight! Well, you have a staff and I have one too. I will fight with you -with one hand! She was strong and quick. With only one hand, the man could not win. She hit him again and again on his head and across his back. Will you come with me, and be one of my men? Her lovely red hair fell down her back. Is nobody with you? The deer was for him.
But I think that he will be happy to eat at Robin Hood's table. They called his name but there was no answer. Perhaps he thinks that the sheriff's men caught me! Friar Tuck will marry us. Let's find him. Perhaps he will want to live with us. She came each day to the forest. He doesn't want to marry us because he is 20 'Robin! And the sheriff will find me at my uncle's house. Oh, where is Friar Tuck? Only he can help us. Now he lives near the river. For one penny, he will take people across the river in his boat.
When poor people cannot pay, he carries them across on his back! People say he loves good food and a good fight. He is a very strange friar, I think. I'd like to try him! He saw the friar's little house, and his boat. Will you take me in your boat? I have some money and I can pay you well. He came quickly across the river. Robin gave him a penny and walked to the boat. But he didn't get in. He pushed the boat and it moved slowly away, down the river.
What are you doing? Robin took out his sword. He looked at Robin's sword and then walked into the water. Robin climbed onto his back and they went slowly to the middle of the river. Then the friar suddenly stopped, stood up, and threw Robin into the water. Friar Tuck could swim more quickly than Robin. I do not have a sword because I am a churchman. And I can kill a man with my two hands! Robin climbed out of the river.
Here, my boys! She is right - you are a good fighter! Will you come and live in the forest? Will you be our friar? Then he left his house by the river. Now he was one of Robin's men.
There was not much snow on the ground and people could again use the Great North Road. Then he can pay us five hundred pounds. That is not too expensive for our best forest deer, our whitest bread and our finest wine! He didn't have to wait long.
Two churchmen on beautiful white horses were on the road. The two men wore expensive clothes. They were afraid, and they often looked into the forest. Little John came out of the forest and moved to the middle of the road. Are we near the abbey? We don't want to be on this road at night.
People say robbers live in the forests near here! After a few minutes they saw smoke and then a fire. Robin's men were there. This is not the abbey!
We hope you will stay for dinner! So they got down from their horses and sat at Robin's table. Robin's men brought them meat, wine and bread. The food was very good, but the churchmen couldn't eat. They were too afraid. With a little church gold, we can help the abbot's villagers. On the abbot's land there are many poor families. Please don't kill us! Then he called to Robin Hood. There is no money in their bags. My Lord Abbot is waiting for us. You can pay for your dinner with those.
Take them off! Here, in the forest? The two men slowly took off all their clothes. The robbers looked at the churchmen and began to laugh Under their clothes, each man had five large money bags. There is gold in these bags! One hundred pounds in each bag. Perhaps somebody put the gold there! Go now and tell the good abbot.
Robin Hood found one thousand pounds! You can wear our old clothes, and walk to the abbey. He will not be a happy man. My wife and her friends made them. The abbot took that money last year - and yesterday the church gave it back to me! I would like to give your wife this beautiful white horse.
And for you, I have some fine clothes! The abbot was very angry. Prince John heard the stories too. People are laughing at you! What are you going to do? The winner will get a gold arrow. I know that Robin Hood will come. Everybody says that he is the best bowman in England. He will win the contest and take the gold arrow. Then I will take him. The sheriff was right — they wanted to go. But you are a better bowman than all of us! He knows that you will go. He only wants to find you and kill you!
I will win the contest, but the sheriff won't catch me The sheriff will not know me, and I will play in the contest.
Perhaps I will win the gold arrow, not you! Some people played and other people watched. One hundred of the sheriff's men were there too.
But do not kill him. Prince John wants to meet him first!
One man was the best. But we will catch him easily. That big man with him is Little John and the fat man is Friar Tuck. We will take them too. But who is the boy? He is very good with a bow and arrow too. He went to the sheriff and smiled. The sheriff smiled coldly and gave him the gold arrow. Then Robin turned away. But twenty of Robin's men took off their hoods and moved behind Robin.
A great swordfight began. Robin's men and the sheriff's fought for a long time. Marian fought too this time, and she fought well. Many of the sheriff's men died that day. The sheriff was very angry. Get back to the forest! Marian, come! They hurt Little John! I cannot walk. With Will and Marian's help, he put Little John on his back and ran to the forest road.
Suddenly a man arrived on a white horse. It was Richard of Lee. The sheriff and his men will not look for you in my home! They stayed at Sir Richard's house that night. Robin told Sir Richard and his wife about the contest and about other adventures in the forest. You cannot go home or visit your father. How will these adventures end? When will you leave the forest? But his brother, Prince John, only wanted to be king and to be rich. People hated him.
When King Richard was in England, the prince and other important Norman lords had to listen to their king.
They could not take land and money from weaker men. But Richard fought in Jerusalem for many years. When the king was away, Prince John and his friends were greedy and unkind. Then, one day, the prince got a letter from the Sheriff of Nottingham.
The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood
They say he is going from town to town and asking questions about me - and about you. Why isn't he dead? And why didn't he come here to London? What stories about me is he listening to? I think I too will go to Nottingham and visit my friend the sheriff. Perhaps he can tell me more. A hundred strong men went with him.
They took the road through Sherwood Forest, and there they met a churchman. The man was very tall and strong and he wore a great hood over his face. Aren't you afraid? Don't you know that the robber, Robin Hood, lives in Sherwood Forest?I would like to give your wife this beautiful white horse.
Who was this man? The arrow flew a long way, into the forest. High leaped the noblest hart of all the herd, only to fall dead, reddening the green path with his heart's blood. Robin Hood and the Pirates. He will have to fight me now! She saw a deer. Can't see any links?
