Once there was a King named Lalos and a Queen named Jacosta of Thebes. When their innocent child was born his cold hearted father ordered a shepherd to leave him to die on a mountainside because an oracle told them the child would kill his father and marry his mother.
The shepherd didn't have the heart to do an action so evil instead he took the child to a family that would care for him. His new parents named him Oedipus. One day when he was grown on his journey to Thebes he encountered an old man who tried to run him off the road.
