Medusa was exhausted of trying to find love. She searched and looked but when they looked at her once charming eyes, she could no longer love that man. She pleaded to the gods and goddesses for mercy but they ignored her merciful pleas and left her to be unloved forever.
Medusa was kind at heart, but full of hatred and loneliness on the outside. One day, she thought of a plan to trick the gods and goddesses to give her beauty back, she decided to sell all her belongings and live on the streets until the gods and goddesses felt sorry for her and gave back the wonderful, shaped face she had imprisoned inside her heart.
When she had sold everything she owned, she went onto the hill near Olympus and she lived there for two years until she had starved, the gods and goddesses still angry, softened and had mercy on the now very poor Medusa, they gave her a choice, to either keep her snakes and live with all hope and luckiness, or to give her beauty back and live a working life as a normal lady.
She thought about keeping her snakes but she decided to choose her beauty because she didn’t want to be lucky all the time and not let anyone else have a chance. So she chose to have her beauty and live normally like all the Greeks in her town.
The gods and goddesses considered, finally they said yes. Medusa lived normally with a husband and two children, she warned them not to make the gods and goddesses too angry or they will have severe punishments, just like she did.
