Philemon and Baucis lived in together in a small town. They were very nice and kind citizens, considering their lack of money. Many people in rome were evil and mean, but this couple was different.
Jupiter was struggling with the decision of ending the human kind. Jupiter saw this kind couple, Philemon and Baucis. He decided he wanted to give mankind one last chance.
Jupiter and Mercury disguised themselves as worn travelers and went to the town where Philemon and Baucis lived.
Jupiter and Mercury went from door to door asking if people would welcome them into their home. Every single door they walked up to, they were shut down.
Finally Jupiter and Mercury walked up to Baucis and Philemon's house. Baucis and Philemon welcomed them with open arms. They gave them snacks and poured them wine. No matter how much wine they poured, they never ran out.
The couple figured out their guests were more than weary travelers. Baucis and Philemon decided to make their visitors their only guardian pet, their goose. The goose was too fast for them though.
