The Boy with the Sword By Sebastiano De Felice Grade 7 Every child treasures something whether it is a toy or a stuffed animal or a person it could be anything, for Tim it was a sword, but this is no ordinary sword. Tim lived in ancient Rome twas the year 410 AD his mother owned a bakery, and his father fought in the army, he was the general of the first army. They never lost a battle; everyone who challenged the general feared his sword. Some say that gods made it and only the family of the general could yield the sword. Even the smallest strike could cut through anything and kill anyone or anything that comes across it. After a long battle with an enemy kingdom that tried to steal from their empire the general encountered a young enemy, the enemy murdered the generals best friend, so the general had the enemy killed, little did the general know the enemy was the Prince of the enemy kingdom. The father was the King, and when the news came home, that his son was killed the King was mourning and furious he wanted to seek revenge. After the celebration of the victory the general was tired, he went to his bed and fell asleep. The enemy King sent a highly trained soldier under disguise to sneak into the Kingdom and kill the general. There was a scream, and the general was found stabbed while in bed still alive but soon to die, his last words were to his son, â€œTake my place as general, and the sword shall show you the path to victory.â€? The sword soon was given to Tim, everywhere Tim went he would bring the sword with him. When he would, the sword would be beside him. At the age of fourteen, Tim joined the army and was trained for four years. He was put in command under the same military that his dad once commanded. He uses the same sword his father used. As promised from his father the sword has only brought Tim victory. The sword is Tim's treasure.
