Grin Ear to Ear

          In Tonopah Arizona, I wrote a story that I would like to share with all of you. I wrote this because I really want to share my work with all of you guys! The picture to the right is the Labyrinth which is what this story is about.

  Once there was a fierce half-man, half-bull called a Minotaur, who lived in the center of the Labyrinth. The Labyrinth was a maze with one thousand rooms and halls surrounded by high walls. Every spring, seven maidens and seven lads were brutally sacrificed to the Minotaur, because the king was too selfish to fight it. One doomed lad was the intrepid Theseus.

          Theseus ventured into the Labyrinth to hunt down the Minotaur. But how would he return? Even one step in and he would get lost forever. Ariadne, who was the king’s crafty daughter, believed in Theseus and gave him a ball of thread and a sword. He tied the thread at the entrance of the Labyrinth and began the hunt, unwinding the thread as he searched. Suddenly, the Minotaur charged at Theseus from the darkness!

          Theseus swiftly dodged the Minotaur and chopped off its leg. As the Minotaur stumbled, Theseus stabbed the beast’s heart and finished it off. Theseus jumped back because streams of blood quickly flowed out. Everyone repeatedly thanked him and offered to author his heroic deed as they followed the thread to the entrance. Theseus found Ariadne, who was grinning ear to ear, waiting at the door.
