Arachne was great at spinning wool,she was so good people started to say that Athene must have taught her. This upset Arachne
Wow!! she is so good Athene must have taught her!!
Athene did NOT teach me, in fact I I could beat her in a competition
Wow! The goddess Athene must have taught you
Arachne started to say this everytime someone said that Athene must have taught her. Then she got a visit form a lady, or so she thought
Shut up you stupid women!!
No! I'm better than Athene, and could bet her in a compition
Foolish girl! Apologize to Athene, Now!!
But then the women transformed into the BEAUTIFUL goddess Athene and they started to battle
Foolish. Now we shall battle!!
Fine!! Let's begin
The battle ragged on, but then Athene became so offended about what Arachne was doing that she ripped up Arachne's piece and turned her into a spider. Then Athene said this...
Live on wicked girl,. Love on and spin, both you and you descendants.When men look at you they may remember not to strive with Athene!
This myth could apply to modern day children because sometimes kids challenge someone in athority or in charge, and sometimes it doesn't end well. Most of the time it does not end well because the person you are challenges gets very upset because you are trying to prove a point and you end up in lots of trouble.
