King Minos would really like a palace to live in. He asks Daedalus to build him a palace with soaring towers and a high, curving roof. Daedalus
Daedalus is reading a letter from King Minos. Telling him to come to his island and build him a maze in his basement. He wants him to make it fast so the prisoners can't get out easy.
King Minos now tells Daedalus and Icarus that they are going to be held hostage there for the rest of their live. He also tells them they are still going to be treated like royalty.
Daedalus and Icarus wake up extra early so they can try to get out and escape. They are doing this because they came here for a job and not to stay.
While they are flying across the ocean to get back to their home Icarus decides to get closer to the sun. Icarus gets to close that wax started to melt. Before Daedalus knew it Icarus was falling towards the ocean.
don't get any closer!!
When Daedalus finally got to his palace he was still in shook. But he has to move on with his life and continue with his jobs.
