Orphion and the Hydra

A myth submitted to the site by Thinod Vilhan Balage Don

Greece, Greece

Long ago in Ancient Greece, there lived a youthful man called Orphion who lived with his father Diomedes. One stormy night a evil king called King John came and kidnapped the Orphion's beloved father. The next day Orphion got up and realized that his father had gone. He came to a conclusion that the wicked nasty King had took Diomedes. Orphion was extremely petrifyed.

So he set of to the cracked horrible castle owned by King John and in order to get to the nasty King's castle he had to go through the Hydra's cave. As he approached the sea he became a bit nervous. He stopped to get some diving gear and soon was getting nearer to the sea. After Orphion put his hard metal diving gear on he pounced in to the sea and started swimming to the Hydra's whiffy foul cave. As he neared the cave he could smell the Hydra's stinky breath. When he got into the cave the monster was fast asleep. But as the Hydra heard Orphion's footsteps he woke up and leaped out a loud thunderous growl. The vicious Hydra started to fight the young man but luckily he had a sword. So both the Hydra and him were fight but then the Hydra got tired and Orphion sliced one of the Hydra's heads off.

After he had killed the fierce beast he moved on threw the tunnels which went up and down to the evil King's castle. When he had saw his worried father he got the ugly Hydra's head and made the unkind King look into the Hydra's eyes. As quick as a flash the King turn into cold hard cracked stone. The faithful son of Diomedes untied his father and returned home safely. As the crowd welcomed him and his father back they both smiled.
