King Midas was a very greedy man. One day he found a satyr sleeping in his beautiful garden. He made a deal with the Satyr that he would not tell his owner if Midas could get one wish. King Midas wished for the golden touch.
King Midas is enjoying his wealth and gold. He turned his beautiful flowers into gold. Soon after he turned everything into gold he started to realize that he ruined his beautiful flowers.
Midas is starting to get concerned when he picks up a apple from the fruit bowl and a drink when it also turns into gold. He regrets his wish now knowing that he cannot eat drink or touch anything at all.
King Midas is now panicking realizing the mistake he has made when his daughter comes into the room. He tries to warn her to stay away from him, but it is too late. She was hugging her father when she was turned into gold. Midas was heartbroken.
Devastated, Midas travels to Dionysus begging him to reverse his wish. Midas was told that the only was to reverse the wish is to bathe in the river Pactolus. So Midas ventures through the storm and bathes in the river.
Midas returns home and is filled with joy now that his wish was reversed. His daughter was free, and that day Midas learns a very valuable lesson about being greedy.
