make me a maze, I will not tell you the use for it but I will pay you great money!
You can not leave Crete because you might tell people how to escape the maze... I will keep you in the top of my castle!
You can't keep us here! You are holding us hostage!
I'm ok with staying in a castle!
I tried telling you...
I'm not sure how I like this castle anymore.
Setting- Crete Characters-Daedalus,Icarus,King Minos King Minos asked Daedalus and Icarus to build him a maze but didn't tell them the use for it.
Wait that actually might work!
You could make wings from bird's feathers... haha
King Minos finally told Dadelaus and Icarus the use for his maze, but told them they couldn't leave Crete for fear of telling people how to escape through the maze. King Minos then told them they would live at the top of his castle.
I'm flying!!!! Woo Hooooo!
Dad!! Help me!!! I'm going to fall into the ocean!!!
King Minos held Daedalus and Icarus captive and didn't let them leave. Daedalus and Icarus were treated like royalty throughout the day but were treated as prisoners through the night.
Daedalus thought of ways to get out of "prison" and he finally thought of a way to get out of Crete. With his son's idea, he built bird wings so they could fly out of Crete. He started buildings the wings with old bird feathers and wax from a candle.
Daedalus fially built the 2 wings for him and 2 wings for Icarus. He pushed Icarus off of the ledge and Icarus started to fly. He however started getting to close to the sun.
Don't fly too close to the sun, Icarus.
As a result of Icarus getting way to close to the sun, the wax on his wings started melting, and he didn't realize it. His wings then stopped working and the last thing that Daedalus saw of his son, was him diving into the ocean, dying.
