FC: The Story of Perseus
1: There once was a king named Acrisisus of Argo. He always dreamed of having a son. Instead he had a beautiful daughter, Danae.
2: As Danae grew older. Her father was told by the God, Apollo, that if she was to ever have a son, the child would kill him.
3: In order for Acrisius to keep Danae from having a child he had to lock her in a cellar to keep her away from any guys.
4: One night, while Danae was sound asleep, the god of all gods, Zues, created a golden rain that sent down a little baby boy named Perseus. | Danae was afraid to tell her father, so she tried her hardest to keep the baby a secret.
5: When Acrisius came down to check on his daughter he discovered the boy. In fear for his own life, Acrisius banished the two sending them away in a boat to nowhere.
6: Days after aimless floating, Danae and Perseus finally landed on an island. Here they met Dictys and his very loving wife.
7: Years later Dictys's brother Polydectes became known of Danae and fell in love with her. By now Perseus was full grown. | Polydectes was not fond of Perseus so he needed a plan on how to get rid of him.
8: In order to get rid of Perseus, Polydectes sent him on an impossible mission to receive the head of one of the 3 gorgons, Medusa.
9: This was impossible for whenever anyone looks at a gorgon they instantly turn into stone.
10: As brave as Perseus was, he accepted the challenge. Perseus didn't tell his mother what he was off to do because he knew she wouldn't approve. Perseus packed his things and went on his way.
11: After days and days of traveling and fighting Perseus finally returned with the head of Medusa. | He revenged Polydectes and turned him into stone with Medusa's head.
12: Time later Perseus and Danae decided that they would go back to Argo to see if Acrisius had changed. They soon found out that the King was driven away from the city.
13: When in Greece, Perseus found out about a athletic competition. So he competed in a discus throwing contest.
14: Ironically Acrisius was at the same event. He came as a spectator. When Perseus threw his discus it curved into the stands and hit Acrisius, killing him.
15: No matter what Acrisius did, Apollos oracle came true. | THE END
