Daedalus, can you build me a palace? If so, I will pay you.
That's me... (snarl)
Icarus, we need to escape.
How? It's not like we can fly out of here. (laughs)
There was a king named, King Minos. King Minos asked Daedalus to build him a palace. Without knowing why he had to build the palace, Daedalus decided he would do it.
Daedalus had built the castle with soaring towers and a high, curving roof, with a maze cellar in the middle. But he soon realized that what he did was a mistake. In the heart of the maze, King Minos put the Minotaur there and it ate men and women!
When Daedalus figured out what the king put inside the maze he wanted to leave at once, but instead King Minos didn't give him his money and he kept Daedalus and his son in the palace. Daedalus and his son were soon put into prison ( just the palace). One day Daedalus had enough and wanted to escape, and his son gave him the right idea about how to do it.
Daedalus would get up early in the morning each day to ask a bird to spare him one feather, and every night he would be working on his greatest invention. The next morning, Daedalus woke up his son and told him they were leaving Crete! Daedalus and his son both put on folded fans of feathers, and then jumped out of the window and started flying!
Get the King! Daedalus and Icarus are escaping!
It was kinda hard for Icarus (Daedalus's son) to get the hang of it, but he soon got comfortable with it. When Daedalus soon realized his son was getting the hang of it, he said "Don't fly too high, don't fly too close to the sun". But Icarus started getting cocky and started flying really high.
Icarus was getting attacked by birds so he challenged the birds and flew higher. When he noticed that he could fly higher than the birds, he looked up at the sun and thought he could go higher than the sun. But when he got too close to the sun, the wax on his feathers soften, the wax dripped, and feathers came a loose. Icarus finally remembered his fathers words and came hurtling head first into the water.
