The Story of King Arthur
By Sydney Holli Lexie And Karin

When King Arthur was a baby he was given away to Merlin. He loved his foster family and had no idea he was going to be king. One day King Arthur and his family went to a fair and heard the story about the sword getting stuck in the rock for centuries. King Uther had died and the country needed a new ruler. Knights tried to pull the sword out to see if they could be king but everyone failed. Arthur came up to pull the sword out and succeeded. Arthur did it because his brother asked him to bring a sword to him. Arthur brought the sword back to Kay. Sir Kay was astonished because he had pulled out the sword of the stone when many couldn't. Sir Kay was honest and told his father that Arthur pulled out the sword in the stone. The people in the village didn't believe him and they made him do it over and over again until finally they believed him. After that he was known as King Arthur.
