Zacerious

A myth submitted to the site by Sakine

Sparta, Ancient Greece

Long,long ago in the ancient town of Sparta , behind the carstle lived a small village called Delorious. In Delorious lived a Poor inventor, Epimetheies and his son. Zacerious. King Corimen and his beloved daughter Princess Maria lived in the carstle. The king was a very selfish man and everyone hated him and his own daughter knew he messed up and took her own path. Corimen was aware of this situation and all of his servents quit. Maria told him to have servants, so he did but everyone quit on him even his quards.

Corimen stole slaves and ordered Epimetheies to create a deadily creature to be made. Taking orders, Epimetheies created a three headed dog with a lions head and vicious claws. Corimen was never impessed he had a dull face and damp gray hair. His beautiful daughter had hair as black as night and eyes the colour of stars. The dog was sent to the carstle where he was made to protect the king and the princess. unexspectedly the dog attacked Maria and it caused her so much pain she posiend herself.

Consequentsly, Epimetheies and Zacerious got locked in a dull damp cave.The cave was deep under ground and there was no light but a little hole in the celiing. Everyday a small crosent with a glass of water came.The plates mad a huge pile in the other end. Each day Zacerious would ask ; "father why are we here". One day Epimetheies chucked a plate so hard that it made a dent in the rock floor! The idear struck and Epimetheies knew what to do! He put all the broke plates to shape two shovels and the loose twigs on the floor was the hande.They shatterd the leftover plates to make holes in the floor so they could escape.

Once out Epimetheies warned Zacerious not to dig to deep or he'll go to the underworld; "son when we start you must not dig to deep or your go to the underworld." Disrespectfully Zacerious dug so deep he was at the entrance to the underworld. Hades ,god of the underworld, led Zacerious right in the underworld. Puzzeld , Epimetheies made a deal with Hades to take his soul instead of his son so his last words were" Zacerioous make me proud" and he was never saw again.

After that Zacerious went to live in a big city in Crete. King Corimen was aware of this and Zacerious pretended that his father fell and died. When Zacerious was in Crete he married someone called Serimna and they had 4 beautiful kids!
