CM 4:Every nine years, we must sacrifice seven boys and seven girls to this monster, or evil King Minos will wage war against Athens.
CM3: King Minos of Crete has a monster. They call it the Minotaur.It’s half-bull, half-man, and it lives in the center of a huge, puzzling maze.
Though it causes him great sorrow, Aegeus orders a ship prepared for Theseus.
Send me then. I will slay this monster.
Father, is it true? Will you obey Minos and sacrifice Athenians?
Aegeus: I have no choice. Minos has a huge army—he could kill us all!!!!
The seven girls and six boys on board with Theseus are pale and quiet.
Adrienne: *finds Theseus' prison cell* I want to help end this terrible tradition. I have brought you a sword and a ball of string.
Adrienne: I will hold one end at the entrance to the maze. You will hold the other end as you walk through it.
Theseus: What? How will string help?
That's an amazing idea let's do it!
Finally, he reaches the center of the maze. The hideous monster is sleeping "Snort! Growl! Snore!" Then Ariadne appears. The Minotaur awakens. The beast groans and roars and makes all kinds of horrifying, angry sounds. It lowers its sharp horns toward Theseus, preparing to charge. Theseus holds out his sword. It lowers its sharp horns toward Theseus, preparing to charge. Theseus holds out his sword. The Minotaur snaps the sword in half. Theseus dodges the beast at the last moment. The Minotaur’s head slams into a wall. It falls to the ground, dazed. One of its horns has cracked off. Theseus grabs the horn and stabs the Minotaur. The beast dies.
