Arachne was a simple but very talented girl until one day she said to herself I think I am equal to the gods with how talented I am.
As she kept cleaning a old lady comes by and over hears Arachne say that she is equal to the gods. she says "how dare you compare yourself to the gods, take my advice and ask pardon for Athena." But Arachne did not listen.
Arachne was so confident she was equal to the gods she had the courage to go to them and say that to them thinking she they were going to feel the same way.
Arachne is on her way to tell the gods that she is equal to them.
she walks in and speaks to the gods but they know how she felt already but they did not think at all that she was equal to us so as a punishment they turned her into a spider for the rest of her life.
she now regrets thinking that she is equal to the gods and now she is a spider as a punishment.
