Theseus and the Minotaur By Olivia martin

Theseus was the son of Aethra and Aegeus.
Aegeus, king of Athens, told his wife that he must return home to his land. When their son, Theseus came of age, he must find a way to move a boulder and retrieve his new sword and shoes.
When Theseus came of age, he retrieved the shoes and sword and was on his way to Athens. Before he left, his mother warned him of the monsters and bandits along the way.
On his way he came across a bandit named Phaea and her giant man-eating sow. Together they robbed houses in Crommyon, killing whatever and whoever got in their way.
Theseus came across Phaea and her giant sow. HE punished the old woman and her pet by killing them for killing and robbing all of the people of the town of Crommyon.
Then he continued on his way to Athens. When Aegeus arrived there he had dinner with his dad after killing a bull. He heard about the "Minotaur" and volunteered to be a tribute. Aegeus planned to go and try to defeat the half-man half-bull monster.
Theseus promised his dad that when the ship returned and Theseus was alive on the ship, he would change the sails to white, and if not, they would remain black.
Theseus and the thirteen other people arrived at the island only to be greeted by the evil king. Theseus and the other captives were to be thrown into the maze with the minotaur the next morning.
Meanwhile, the evil king's daughter fell in love with Theseus and secretly visited his room that night offering to tell him how to beat the minotaur. This came with a catch, when Theseus and the thirteen others escaped, she would come along too.
She gave him a ball of string and told him to get one of the thirteen to hold it while he went to the center of the maze to beat the minotaur. This would let him lead himself out of the maze when he was done.
Theseus found the minotaur and killed the minotaur using the minotaur's horn, and everyone was free. The princess, her sister, Theseus, the seven women, and six men all left the island on the boat.
There was only one problem, Theseus forgot to change the color of the sails from black to white. Aegeus was devastated. He thought his son was dead. He killed himself.
