"I was in Sicily, without means of transport," he said, "I walked without knowing where to go. One night I arrived in a village a little too fortified for my taste but there must have been a reason. So I knocked on the door of one of the houses and I explained to the inhabitants my situation. I was lucky because they let in right away. During dinner, I asked them why their village was so fortified.

They explained to me that in the mountain there was a lion, gigantic and indestructible, called the Lion of Nemea. After dinner, I was about to leave but they insisted that I stay awake. When dawn with pink fingers appeared, I made my decision. I would fight the Lion of Nemea for all these people in fear.

When I announced my project in the village they brought me armor, a shield, bow, and quiver. I left. Once in front of the Lion Cave, I was scared but I remembered the people of the village, who lived in this fear every day. I was no longer able to go back so I advanced and I put an arrow to my bow.

When it came out, I unsheathed. The arrow bounces; he was indestructible as I had been told but I had an idea, I put an arrow to my bow, he roared and I unsheathed again. The arrow went right into his throat and he fell dead."

*"Now that you're done, we'll prepare the ship so that you can go home," Says Alkinoos. And they left.

That's my story.
