Rumpelstiltskin in Bible Style, chap. 4

Fiction By Sarah Anne // 6/13/2012

Chapter Four

1. And the king was still not pleased, and he commanded a third time that another room be filled with six tons of straw.

2. And Leah wept, for she had nothing left to give unto the little man.

3. And he returned again, and asked her, "Why weepest thou?" And she answered him, "Lo, I weep for the king wants me to spin this straw into pure gold yet again."

4. And he said unto her, "Hast thou anything to give unto me?" And she told him, "Nay, nothing." And she wept aloud.

5. And he said, "weep not, for when the king marrys thee, for he surely shall, just give unto me thy firstborn."

6. And she agreed, for she wot not that the king would marry her.

7. And when the king came in again, she slept deeply, and the straw was again spun into gold.

8. And the king said unto himself, "I shall surely marry this woman."

Normally I cannot read stuff in styles like this, but you make it so easy by applying it to a familiar context.

I am really enjoying this Ye Olde English :)

"Child, to say the very thing you really mean, the whole of it, nothing more less or other than what you really mean; That's the whole art and joy of words." C.S. Lewis

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths
