In Ancient times, there was a kingdom ruled by King Minos. This king had a test of seven girls and seven boys and put them in a maze called the Labyrinth. No person had ever made it through until a boy named Theseus..
The king was so furious he called his top builder, Daedalus, who built the Labyrinth, and put him into exile. They prisoned him in a tower on an island and would not let him or his son, Icarus, leave..
One day they broke out of the tower to just be trapped on the island. They tried to bribe guards, smuggle themselves onto ships, and even fight, but to no use. Then again, Daedalus is a thinker, not a fighter..
Daedalus came up with an idea. He told Icarus to gather all kinds of feathers that were dropped by birds to bring to him. He made two pairs of wings. On for him and one for Icarus. They started to fly out..
As they were flying, Icarus started to get to high up to the sun, the wax holding his wings together melted off and he fell into the water.. Daedalus carried him to a nearby island and buried him there.. Daedalus had weeped for his son.
Daedalus had finally reached Sicily, and built a temple in honor of Icarus. This is how Icarus's is now known as a metaphor, and a folktale..
