Medusa was very pretty, but also very vain. She spent her days admirring her looks, and thinking that they helped others.
One day she went to the temple of Athena. She stated that she was prettier than the Greek Goddess Athena, everyone was shocked.
After the temple cleared out, accept for Medusa who was too busy admiring her looks to notice, it was just her and Athena.
Athena stood over Medusa very angirly. She yells at Medusa that she is vain and foolish. She also says that she doesn't doanything but admirer herself while others work.
With that, Athena then uses her powers to turn Medusa's hair into snakes. If anyone were to look them in the eyes they would be turned to stone!
