King Minos was very annoyed because someone had killed his son as they were jealous that he won lots of Athenian Games. For revenge the King said 14 children would be sent to Crete to be eaten by the Minotaur.
In the deepest darkest tunnels of the labyrinth there lived a Minotaur.
Theseus set sail with the 14 nervous children. He was determined to kill the Minotaur.
They get to Crete and King Minos meets them, he is very depressed that Theseus is there but Ariadne was happy that a cunning boy came to Crete. She gave him some wool and a sword to kill the Minotaur as she wanted to escape from her father.
Theseus entered the dreadful labyrinth and was ready to take down the ugly beast. He ventured far and wide with the string behind him, all of a sudden he heard "hrrrrrra" and he knew that it was the Minotaur. Theseus turned around and used his sword to kill the Minotaur. He escaped the labyrinth and freed Ariadne.
