I cannot let so many innocent citizens be devoured! I must go and defeat the Minotaur for the good of our kingdom!
Oh no son! I must know whether you are alive or dead! If you survive swap the black sails to white ones.
Without this string you will never be able to escape the Labyrinth!
Even though you may be the son of the king you are no match for the Minotaur!
I will go first!
In order to keep his unruly and bloodthirsty Minotaur at bay, King Minos orders 7 boys and 7 girls from Athens to be sent as food for the Minotaur. By choice, the King's son was among them. His father was reluctant to let him go but decided that the boy must give him a signal if he survived: a white sail if he made it and a black one if he didn't.
Where is the piece of sting? Without it I have no hope of escaping!
Upon arriving in Crete, Theseus meets Ariadne who in turn falls in love with him and gives him a piece of string which Theseus can use to escape the Labyrinth after defeating the Minotaur. Theseus valiantly offers to enter the maze first.
Take me to Athens Theseus! I have fallen desperately in love with you! When my father finds out I helped you he will surely kill me anyway...
Save us Theseus!
Whatever you say darling Fiancee!
After a strenuous and nail-biting battle,Theseus manages to kill the Minotaur using its horns and as such ends the monster's claim on Crete and Athens.
Go find some bread and fruit...
However, in the struggle Theseus manages to lose the piece of string he had been using to find his way. After feeling around in the darkness, he retrieves the string and manages to escape.
Theseus follows it to the entrance where he leaves Crete but with Ariadne (the evil King's daughter nonetheless) in tow. Ariadne is convinced the two will marry as soon as they reach Athens, and slightly unnerves Theseus by saying so.
Docking on a small island, Theseus instructs Ariadne to fetch some bread and fruit as provisions for their journey home. Ariadne eagerly agrees and sets about her task.
