Candle God

Back in Ancient Greece electricity was not yet invented so they had to use candles for light. One day a couple of young boys were playing in a local store when one of the boys takes a candle and slams it to the ground and starts to stomp on it. That night the Candle God had spoken to the people and said,"Because of the event that happened earlier today I now ban candles from mortals so no light shall brighten the night of this place."

After,years of no light a local village man had told the people,"I will not return till light is shed upon this fine city." The man later that evening set off on his quest to seek light for the people.

He had travled many days and nights and hardly stopped to rest,then finally he reaches the forbidden maze but if he were to make it out alive it would take him straight to the gods. While traveling through the maze for quite sometime he ran into the most terrifying beast he had ever set his eyes on,"The Menetaur". The man had herd many tales about this creature but never thought they were true, so as he gazed up at the beast he slowly puled out a basket of fruit whitch the Menetaur quickly ate but what he didn't know was that the fruit was poisonous so the creature had fallen to his knees and quickly died afterwards.

Once the man made it out of the maze he still had a long journey ahead of him. Before, he could reach the gods he had to stop and rest, but he ended up falling asleep. When he woke up he noticed that he had been taken tom the gods by someone while he was asleep. Once He made it to the candle god he began to tell him about his adventure all just to restore the light so after hearing the Candle God granted the wish to restore the light and the man was forever known as the savior of light.
