Once in the city-state of Athens, Sophos a famous philosopher, returned home from voting. In Athens, they had direct democracy where a man above the age of 38 voted. Sophos had to walk all the way from the Agora, home, only to find a cloaked figure standing at his door. This figure knelt down and begged to be let in, offering a beaten and torn book. Athens valued knowledge unlike Sparta who threw weak childern off cliffs. But a beaten and old book? Sophos laughed at the figure and told them to leave.
Without a single word the figure rose from the ground and left.
Soon without any warning the sky crackled with thunder.
A person cannot be one of greatness if they do not hold a noble heart!! Hermes!! Send Sophos to the deepest depths of hell to rot for his crimes!!!!
Of course, Zeus.
When Sophos opened up his eyes he was greeted with intense heat and cavern walls. He had been sent to Hell.
Then we will proceed with the quest, Good luck.
I am a very generous person. I will give you a very simple quest, will you except this offer?
WAIT!! I'M NOT R-
When did I ever have a choice in this?
Imma swimming in the Mediterranian Sea!! And is no one acknowledging the lighthouse??
Sophos ran and ran until the bones of past humans caught him and held him down. The Monsters grew closer and he blacked out.
Suddenly Sophos' surrounding changed and he appeared in a dark tunnel.
It had been 32 years since Sophos had disappeared. When he had come back to the land of the living he had appeared in the Pindus Mountains. He was given a home and shown the hospitality he had lacked. One day, he had made his way to the Acropolis which the temple for Athena laid on. When Sophos bowed down to ask for forgiveness, he was suddenly shown a vision of a small house by the sea.
When Sophos got there he saw the cloaked figure from before the mess started. He apologized profusely and when he looked up at the figure again, Athena stood in their place.
Sophos stared at the goddess and bowed his head with a sigh. He had finally realized what had happened and he thanked the goddess for her help. She smiled and knelt down to him giving him the beaten and torn book as a reminder of this event. Then Sophos woke up in his house by the sea. He grabbed his beaten and torn book and left his house to find another in the dead of a winter night.
You didn't let in a poor person. And you think women aren't capable of rational thought?
