No! They're ugly! They're horrid and sharp and I can't smell them anymore. What happened?
This is unfortunate. I'm sorry it happened. I have no time to be sad this morning. I shall be busy turning things into gold.
As king Midas was sleeping, the god Apollo summoned up in his dreams. Apollo asked the king what he would like to wish for. The king responds by demanding eagerly that he wish to turn everything he touched into gold.
The king was very excited to test if his dream was real so he rushed over to his daughter which was in the garden. As he touched the roses, they turned gold one by one. His daughter was devastated for her father had ruined her beautiful flowers.
The king tried to comfort his daughter as she cried for the now dreadful roses. Midas disliked seeing his daughter unhappy so he began to stroke her hair, but she instantly became a golden statue with a little golden bump in her cheek which was a teardrop.. Midas loved his daughter very much, but not even his love for her could stop Midas from wanting more gold.
