Hey sis you still think you are the best at weaving? well I think you have an rival
What how dare they! a mortal I will sort this out immediately
"equal Athene??!!!!!!!" you must live in a deep cave to say that I am equal to Athene, everyone knows I am 100 times better than Athene.
Careful girl, don't let your ambitions soar too high. Athene is the best craftswoman there ever was so thinking that you might one day equal her would be a crime for any god to punish
In the town of Lydia in ancient Greece, there was a girl named Arachne, she was the best weave in all of Lydia, some say she is even better than the goddess Athene. Her weaving was amazing her fast fingers would speed on and before you knew it it was a beautiful piece of the tapestry that was so real you could swear she was actually creating the objects in her tapestry.
In Athene's home helios came to visit, he came to say that Athene might have a rival, Arachne a mortal can challenge Athene. Athene enraged decided to get closer to access the severity of the situation.
You know who I am and you still would weave such disgusting things about me. Do I look like a murderer to you.? You like to weave eh well you and your ancestors can do that for the rest of your life.
Athene enraged accepted Arachne's challenge. The two set up their looms and began weaving. Arachne started to weave beautiful tapestries and the weaknesses of the king of the gods Zeus. Athene saw the skills of Arachne and knew she had lost. The crowd knew that but dare not say anything, it was very quiet. Athene had accepted her loss and decided to leave arachne be.
Suddenly Zeus came out of nowwhere and everyone was gone in a puff including Athene. Now it was just Arachne and Zeus one on one talk.
Zeus turned Arachne into a spider to punish her and all of her descendants so they can weave forever.
