Mr. MAsciopinto's class.
On the island of Crete... Hercules just took away the mad bull Poseidon sent, Poseidon becomes angry and says if you don't start worshiping me you will be cursed. He was not kidding because Queen Knossos and King Minos had a minotaur as a baby, half man-half bull.
Soon King Mino's had a war with Athens. During the war one of King Mino's son died. So King Aegeus because he land killed King Mino's son agreed to send 14 young Athenians to Crete every 9 years to feed the Minotaur because it only eats human flesh.
One time when it was close to send the 14 young Athenians to Crete King Aegeus' son, Theseus begged to go to Crete so he can kill the minotaur, his father let him. If Theseus succeeded he will raise white sails to show his victory. When he got to Crete he fell in love with King Mino's daughter Ariadne.
Ariadne knew she could not just let Theseus die so she went to the architect and asked for any ideas and the architect gave her a golden magic thread. She is suppose to give the thread to Theseus and he would tie thread to the door of the Minotaur's labyrinth.
Theseus went into the labyrinth and found the minotaur. He killed the minotaur and freed the young Athenians. They were in such a hurry that Theseus forgot to put up the white sails.
Since Theseus forgot to put up the white sails his father flung himself off the cliff. Finally Theseus took the throne.
