John was a boy who lived with his father and his big brother in a small town.
John´s brother was really smart unlike John. Everybody admired him, even his father.
One day, John´s brother injured his hand in a domestic accident and it started to bleed. His father went to John and said “John, your brother´s hand is bleeding, don´t look at him, you might be afraid”.
John didn´t understand his father and asked him – “What is fear?”.- His father couldn’t believe what he was saying, – “You don’t know what fear means? Ok, go to the woods and you will discover what it means”. And so that is what John did.
Over the first three months Fearless John lived through lots of adventures, fighting savages bears, poisenous snakes, and scary ghosts, but he still didn´t know the meaning of fear.
One night, John came to a big castle in the middle of the woods. It was really old and there was something written on the door: “The one who dares to spend three nights in this castle and survives will marry the princess”.
Fearless John decided to try to spent three nights in the castle. Even if it was full of monsters, ghosts and dragons, John wasn´t afraid.
After the third night, the King of the castle came up to Fearless John – “You are the only one who has survived and so you will marry my daughter!”- said the King. That is how fearless John became a prince and married the beautiful princess Mary.
One day, prince John was sleeping with his wife, when she threw a jug of water of water over him as she wanted him to wake up. Fearless John jumped out of bed and said – “Princess! Now I know what fear means!”
