Icarus and Daedalus flapping their wings made out of wax and feathers. Daedalus yelled out to his son "don't go too close to the sun or the wax on your wings will melt". Along the line before this happened there was a man who was an inventor named Daedalus and he also had a son named Icarus. They lived in a kingdom that is run by a man named King Minos. King Minos also had a beast, as this beast was half man half bull his hunger became unbearable.
Once a year King Minos orded his soldiers to go to the Athenian village to collect seven young women and seven young Athenian men to feed the beastly hungry Minotaur.As Daedalus the inventor made an underground maze, he built this for the Athenians to get caught and confused untill death.
As none of these Athenians survived in the underground maze, along came a very young man by the name of Theseus as he said to one of the soldiers if they could take him along with the other young Athenian men and women. Theseus knows the Minotaur is waiting for him underground bellow.
The next morning Daedalus awoke and started thinking about how he would get away with his son, so he invented wings made out of wax and thousands of collected feathers days earlier. He made two pairs of beautiful wings and waited for the next day.
The next day as the sun breaks above the ground an old man stands on the hill as the ground warms to the first rays of light a bird song shatters the still. His eyes are ablaze, see Daedalus in his gaze. flying on your way, like an eagle. Flying as high as the sun.
Now the crowd breaks and Icarus appears look his old man in the eyes as he spreads his wings and shouts at the crowd in the name of god my father I'll fly.
His eyes seem so glazed as he flies on his wings he flying as high as the sun his dreams turn to ashes as he falls beneath the water below.
The waves crash with the most horrible smash Icarus's life is lost in seconds in between waters,land and isands.
Daedalus shows much emotion but not a commotion. He moves onto a new home moving so slow thinking about the day that his son once chose the wrong pathway and the cries of Icarus on that day when the skies went grey.
What is the theme? Like what is the point? What is the moral it is trying to teach?
