Once there was a king who kept a fierce beast in his cave and it ate 3 boys and 3 girls and, when he got a treat, he got more than three girls and boys.
Then they had a draw, they got a bag of stones and they put white stones in a bag and put one only one white stone in the bag. They had a prize draw whoever picked the white stone out had to kill the minotaur. A man called Theseus picked out the white stone so the king sent him down into the cave and the monotaur charged towards Theasus. But Theseus decided to trick him, he leant against the wall and pretended to be a Roman on the wall. As soon as the Minotaur went past, Theseus jumped out and stabbed the minotaur but the minotaur only fell to the ground and let out a cry. But then Theseus stabbed him and he could hear a crowd cheering and one of the people shouted "Theseus you killed the minotaur."
Then the king, suprised to see Theseus alive, said "here you have my crown you have my jewels." Then the king did a presentation and said "I may now present Theseus king of the Romans and king of us, but most of all thank him for killing the Minotaur." The Parents weren't really bothered, all they were bothered about was that their children could sleep safely in their beds once more.
