King Midas finds a Satyr in his garden of flowers. The Satyr begs for the king not to tell Dionysus that he was there. King Midas lets him stay for a week at his palace.
King Midas returns the Satyr to Dionysus and Dionysus grants King Midas a wish of whatever he wants. Midas waits a day and a night to figure out what he would like to wish for.
King Midas returns to Dionysus and tells him his wish. King Midas wished for everything he touched to turn to gold. Dionysus grants the wish and Midas goes to his garden to test his new power.
King Midas soon realizes that he made an awful wish. All of his flowers are golden but with no scent. He can't eat anything which means he will starve. He cannot even drink, the wine turned to gold in the bottle.
Midas washes away the wish and his golden powers are gone. His daughter who was turned to gold when she hugged him was back to normal. The flowers were back to normal, and the power was reversed.
Midas' learned a lesson that day, not to be greedy. Dionysus let Midas off easily. Maybe if there's ever a next time, Dionysus won't let them off that easily.
