Approach to Inmost Cave
The Supreme Ordeal/Final Conflict
Theseus was invited into a random persons house without knowing the man intended on torturing him. The man was known as the stretcher. The man was known for puting you to sleep and put you into a iron framed bed that fits all men. But if your too tall he will cut off your legs and if your too short he will stretch you, which is where he gets his name.
The Road Back
Fearing Theseus Madea suggested poisoning Theseus.Not knowing Theseus was his son, Aegues agreed. At first Aegues welcomed Theseus, hiding his evil intentions. Thankfully Theseus didn't drink the poison because when Theseus showed Agues the sword Aegues became so happy he found his son.
Theseus' reward is finding his real father. Even though in the beginning Theseus was disappointed his father wasn't a god, he ended up being really happy. His father was also very happy and hugged the stalwart body of Theseus to show how much he loved him.
Return with the Elixir
As Theseus was getting ready to leave the King of Crete raised a price of peace. The price was terrible, seven youth and seven maidens are sent to Crete and thrown to the Minotaur. Seeing that the the Athenians was angry with his father, Theseus volunteered to be one of the fourteen.
As Theseus was getting ready to fight, the princess confessed her love to him. The princess didn't want Theseus to die so she gave him a sword to slay the minotaur. After getting the sword Theseus chose to make the princess his love if he survives.
After slaying the minotaur Theseus was finally able to leave. As the ship was returning home King Aegeus' heart broke. Theseus forgot to change to sails, so his father thought he was dead. So he through himself into the sea.
