FC: THE STORY OF YOUNG GOODMAN BROWN
1: Once there was a handsome young man who went by the name of Young Goodman Brown.
3: He was married to a beautiful young woman by the name of Faith.
4: One night, Young Goodman Brown had to leave Faith and meet up with a “traveler” for some “business” in the woods. But Faith begged her young husband not to go. She was afraid that something bad was going to happen.
6: Young Goodman Brown told Faith that everything would be okay and went about his “business” in the woods.
7: When he walked into the forest, he felt sort of bad and thought about Faith many times before he met up with the traveler. Finally he had seen the man he was looking for.
8: The traveler was an older man who was very tricky and dark. After walking a while in the dark forest with the traveler, Young Good Man Brown missed his wife Faith and was worried that she may have been right. He wanted to turn back immediately and head home, but the evil traveler would not let him. The traveler kept pushing him forward.
11: Finally Young Goodman Brown realized that he was being tricked into attending a witches meeting deep in the woods and the man that he was traveling with was the Devil!
12: At this witches meeting, all of the people from town were there! There were people from his church, the priest, townspeople, and everyone else. To his surprise, Faith was there too!
14: Young Goodman Brown tried to call to Faith, so that together, they could escape the evil tricks that the Devil has played on them. But closer and closer the devil was coming!
16: Just as the Devil tried to grab hold of Young Goodman Brown and Faith, Young Goodman Brown awoke at the edge of the forest. “Was it all a dream?”, he asked himself.
18: He walked back to town and to his house. While walking, Young Goodman Brown carefully looked at all the people in town, as if he was confused and did not trust any one of them.
20: After, he arrived at his house and saw Faith waiting to welcome him home. But Young Goodman Brown, as happy as he was inside to see Faith, was still cautious about what was going on around him. From that day on, Young Goodman Brown did not trust the people in town or his community because of his "dream" that he had that night.
23: The End.
