Hercules and the Hydra

A myth submitted to the site by Amin Da Cruz

Crete, Bahrain

After doing the first task, Hercules was going to do the second task, to kill the many headed Hydra. He asked king Minos “How can I get there?" King Minos said that he had to go to the Hydra’s cave. So, he sailed to the blood-chilling cave.

Do you think it would be scary if you went by yourself? Good! Because Hercules was not alone, his partner Iolaus came along with him.

When they got to the Hydra’s cave, they saw the green scaly Hydra hunting for human blubber.

As soon as it was possible, Hercules jumped right out from behind a big boulder and in a nano second severed the head of the insane Hydra. Hercules expected it to die. Instead, it grew another two flesh eating Hydra heads!!!

Hercules sprinted and kept chopping all of the Hydra heads. Soon, the Hydra had nearly ten heads!

Then Hercules had an outstanding idea.

Whenever Hercules chopped a head off the Hydra, Iolaus burned the neck of the Hydra. A few minutes later, Hercules with his partner, eliminated the malicious Hydra.
