A very late entry in a prompt which is probably too long.
Once there was a kingdom which treated its children poorly.
One day, a schoolboy was walking home when a voice called out to him and cried out "you are the one who will open this kingdom's eyes! This kingdom must treat little boys better! Run and conquer the great city! Run boy, run!"
So he ran and ran. Faster and faster, fear gripping him as he made his way to the city. A flock of ravens chased him along, cawing "Run! Run!" Large creatures emerged from the ground as he continued to move.
The little boy stumbled and fell as a terrible brown creature emerged from the soil, but the creature picked him up and carried him until he could continue the journey.Soon, the boy led a massive army and was given a Viking a viking warrior's helmet and sword. The army stormed the great city and no longer did the boy fear.
