Once on the island of Sicily, there lived two young men, Damon and Pythias. They were known for their strong friendship. They were ruled by an evil king with a powerful army. No one dared challenge him.
I hate the king and his laws!
I am called Pythias.
Ho there! Who are you to speak out against the king!
You're under arrest!
I am not alone, but no one dares challenge you because you rule with an iron fist.
How dare you! Soldier, send this man to jail. He is to be executed in two weeks.
So, Pythias, I hear you don't approve of my laws.
