Once upon a time there was young man called Fearless Little John, because Little John was not afraid of anything. It so came that one day on his travels he was looking for a place to stay.
"There’s no space for you here," said the innkeeper, "But if you have no fear, then you might stay in the palace."
"Why should I be afraid?" asked Little John.
"Because if you feel afraid, then you will never be able to leave. And then, when the morning comes, there in the palace shall I find you dead!"
My very first translated fable. I’ll give some others a go. This is just for fun, but I might do some write ups on what I did.
