Dead Matches

Long ago, there were contests, called dead matches. You would fight to the death,& whosoever one, would be advanced 1 rank, and be held in the highest respect. Once, a warrior deafeated everyone he faced. A small rat faced the warrior (though everyone knew he'd fail within a minute).Everyone bet at least half of there gold on the warrior.They didn't know, though, that the rat had been training hard, mentally & phisically. The audiance was right. the match had lasted less than a minute. But the rat won. He dodged the warrior's swings & pulled a root out of the side of the cliff they were fighting by, & every boulder on the cliffside came tumbiling down on the warrior; the rat emerging victorious.
