The Story of Theseus and the Minotaur

Theseus traveled for days, killing monsters along his way, until he met some people and rested for a bit, until Theseus got his death sentence which was being fed to the Minotaur, but he had help from a princess named Ariadne who gave him a ball of yarn that he could use to find his way back out of the labyrinth.
He made his way through the labyrinth until he came upon a monster called the Minotaur. Something stood out about this monster, Theseus felt doubt, he was scared until he called out "Asterion!", this made the Minotaur freeze mid-step, Theseus took advantage of this and stabbed the Minotaur in the gut with his own horn. The Minotaur got up and tried to fight again, but he was too slow to catch up to Theseus and eventually fell to his knees, and died.
Then he made his way out of the labyrinth and began his sailing trip, but he told one of his dads, Aegeus that when he came back that his ship would have white sails, but when he came back, he had black sails and his dad thought that Theseus was dead, so he jumped off of a cliff and died, not knowing that his son actually alive.
