Jupiter and the Cyclops

A myth submitted to the site by Sophie

Village, Cyprus

Long long ago on a sunny Greek island there live a young boy named Jupiter and his gorgeous mother Ivy. One day the evil king Oragano came to visit. Instantly he fell in love with Ivy and wanted to marry her ,but Oragano was not well liked and every time he asked her she said “I would rather die than marry you”!

Oragano did not like Jupiter for trying to guard his mum so he thought of a evil plan to get rid of him. In the night he kidnapped Ivy and took her to the Cyclops’s cave and left her in a secret passage so she would get hurt. The Cyclops was a petrifying monster. He was half man and half slug but it only had one eye and anyone who looked at him turned to stone. Instead of hair he had spikes sprouting out of his head.

The next day Oragano told Jupiter that his mother was missing. Immediately he set of to the Cyclops’s cave because he knew she would be there. Luckily the Cyclops was asleep so Jupiter wouldn’t turn to stone with1 swoop of his sword he chopped of It’s head. Finally he found his mother and took her home. When he found the king he got the head and showed it to the king. Without thinking the king suddenly turned to stone and they lived peacefully ever after.
