Once upon a time, there was a girl named Arachne. She had amazing weaving ability. People thought that Athene might've- Is that the right word? No, they KNEW that Athene taught her. She made the mistake to say-
She made a grave mistake.
With these hands, I could beat Athene herself.
One day, a old lady warned her that if you trifle with the gods, you will be punished. Arachne got mad .
I will warn you, if you trifle with the gods, they will punish you. .
Stupid women. How dare you talk talk to me that way! I want to challenge Athene and show that I can match a god's power. .
Uh Oh... .
The old lady was Athene in disguise and uncovered her true identity. Arachne was shocked and became nervous and scared. .
Want a challenge, eh? I accept. .
While the contest was going down, Athene made signs saying what happens when you trifle with the gods. Arachne became mad and made her tapestry about the cruel things that the gods did to the humans.
Arachne's actions made Athene mad she punishes Arachne. Athene turns her into a spider. Moral of the story? Don't trifle with the gods.
