The Legend of Perseus

A myth submitted to the site by Andrei Minculete

The Temple of Apollo, Greece

A long time ago, before the world was as it is now, a strong, powerful and wise man called Perseus went on a deadly journey. Apollo the god of the sun and music had a problem, and then as if by magic Perseus woke up in the temple of Apollo. “You are the only passionate man I could find to kill the devil’s key, and as a reward I will give you the gift of music.” Apollo told him.

The following day Perseus set out on his quest. The thin sand tickled his feet. The desert seemed never-ending. Funnily enough, when everything seemed to be going well giant sandworms attacked him. When he killed one, another one rose up from the sand. Perseus was also very wise so he started running in a circle and the worms tied each other up. The next day he got at the end of the desert.

As he approached the Key’s lair pulled out his sword and quietly came closer to the cave. He entered and in a blink of an eye the Devil’s key was right in front of him. A deadly clash started which lasted for hours. Wounded and tiered Perseus pulled out his sword and in less than a second the Devil’s key fell flat on the floor. Victorious Perseus decides to a nap.

When he wakes up he is again in the temple of Apollo. Apollo gave him the gift of music. After a year or two Perseus used his gift to insult people through music. After he died his spirit went into music. It says that his spirit is still in the music that you listen to today.
