The Brave Warrior and The Nasty King

Another old story today, in much the same vein as the one from the other day. From memory, I wrote them both on the same day, and any similarities between the two are entirely intentional.

The Brave Warrior and The Nasty King

Once upon a time there lived a brave warrior. He was so brave that one day the king said that he was so brave that he should marry his daughter.
The brave warrior thought that this was a splendid idea and went to see the princess and ask her if she would marry him.
The princess was a fussy girl, however, and wanted the brave warrior to perform three difficult tasks for her.
Well, the brave warrior thought that this was a stupid idea and that he'd much rather marry the dairy maid in the village from where he came.
This enraged the king so much that he had the brave warrior's village destroyed and all the people were fed to the royal dragon, whose name was Lucky Pete.
The brave warrior thought that this was a very bad thing for the king to do and went to tell the king this.
The king laughed at the brave warrior, who got very angry. So angry, in fact, that he chopped off the king's head.
The brave warrior then went to the princess, and she laughed at him, too. The brave warrior was so angry at this that he cut of the princess's head.
The brave warrior then went to see Lucky Pete, the royal dragon.
"Can I have my village back please, Lucky Pete?" asked the brave warrior.
The royal dragon just laughed at the brave warrior, and said that he would eat him, too.
The brave warrior was so angry at the royal dragon that he cut off the royal dragon's head.
When he did this, all the people from the village jumped out of the royal dragon's neck.
The brave warrior married the dairy maid, and the brave warrior became king of all the lands, which made all the people very glad.
And they all lived happily ever after.
