The King of Swords
Today I wrote a story. I picked out some cards that Gramma had. Then I started telling a story.
The King of Swords
By Austin Phare
The man was trying to get cherries from a tree. He got caught in a snare trap that was in the tree.
The King of Swords had made the trap. When Jesus, the hanged man, got caught it triggered an alarm that woke up the King of Swords. The king set Jesus free, saying, “You need to stay away from these trees.”
A wizard came out of the sky. He was the wizard of the Seven Golden Cups. When he saw Jesus and the king he said, “How about you guys stop fighting and be friends.” The wizard said, “if you two stop fighting I will give you a new kingdom.”
So the king and Jesus stopped fighting and they a new kingdom, the Kingdom of the Spirits.
The queen of Rods, Cindella, came to the Kingdom of the Spirits. King White Beard thought she was very beautiful so they got married the next day.
A few months later they had a daughter they named Sophelia. Jesus went to war and fell into lava, his skin was burned away but he didn’t die, he was a skeleton. The king and queen had to go away so Jesus protected Sophelia while they were gone.
A couple of days later Sophelia grew up and found a friend, Savator. They went on an adventure to dig some gold. They found two golden cups that belonged to the Wizard of the Seven Golden Cups. The Wizard came out of the sky and gave them a reward for finding his stolen cups. The reward was golden coins and diamonds. Sophelia used the golden coins to pay for her Mom and Dad to come back home.
When King White Beard and Queen Cindella came back they found the Wheel of Fortune in their kingdom. They spun the wheel and it said that they will have another child.
A few months later they had twins, Rosie and Goldilocks. They grew up loving to garden. Their mother, who was the queen of rods, gave them four rods. They grew flowers around the rods to ma an arch.
The Queen of Swords was getting ready for a war against Jesus; it was a war for the Red Diamond Sword. The Red Diamond Sword was used to kill a dragon, the dragon blood made the sword magical. Belief in yourself makes you with battles with the sword. The Queen of Swords never really believes in herself so Jesus won the war.
Jesus went back to the Kingdom of the Spirits. King White Beard rewarded Jesus with the Red Diamond Sword because he really believed in himself.
The Hanson-Roberts Tarot Deck was used to inspire and illustrate the story.
