He decided to turn himself into something totally different - a shower of gold! He dissolved into a swirling cloud of twenty-four-carat glitter and sped down from Mount Olympus.
He poured through the air shaft, filling Danae's cell with warm, dazzling light that took her breath away. Danae had never had a boyfriend. Especially not a god boyfriend who could turn into glitter. Pretty soon - like in five or six minutes - she was madly in love.
Weeks passed. Danae stayed so quiet in her cell that the guards outside grew incredibly bored. Then one day, about nine months after the glitter incident, a guard was pushing a food tray through the slot in the door as usual when he heard a strange sound: He ran to get King Acrisius - because this was the kind of thing the boss would want to know about. When the king got there, he unlocked the door, stormed into the cell and found Danae cradling a newborn baby in a blanket.
No one else was there. No one could've possibly got in, because Acrisius had the only key, and no one could have fitted through Mr Toilet. This is our son. I have named him Perseus. The word Perseus meant avenger or destroyer, depending on how you interpreted it. The king did not want the kid growing up to hang out with Iron Man and the Hulk and, from the way Danae was glaring at him, the king had a pretty good idea who she wanted destroyed. The king's worst fear about the prophecy was coming true - which was kind of stupid, because if he hadn't been such a butt-brain and locked up his daughter, it never would've happened.
But that's the way prophecies work. You try to avoid the trap, and in doing so you end up building the trap yourself and stepping right into it.
Acrisius wanted to murder Danae and the little boy.
That was the safest bet. But there was that whole taboo thing about killing your family. Annoying detail! Also if Danae was telling the truth and Perseus was the son of Zeus ,,, well, angering the lord of the universe wasn't going to help Acrisius's life expectancy. Acrisius decided to try something else.
He ordered his guards to find a large wooden box with a hinged lid. He had some airholes drilled in the top, just to show he was a nice guy, then he stuffed Danae and her infant son inside, nailed the lid shut and had the box tossed into the sea. He figured he wasn't killing them directly. Maybe they would perish from thirst and hunger. Maybe a nice storm would smash them to pieces and drown them. Whatever happened, it wouldn't be his fault! The king went back to the palace and slept well for the first time in years.
Nothing like condemning your daughter and grandson to a slow, horrible death to really ease your mind. If you're an airhole like Acrisius, that is. Meanwhile, inside the wooden box, Danae prayed to Zeus. I don't mean to bother you, but my dad kicked me out. I'm in a box. In the middle of the sea.
And Perseus is with me. So ,,, yeah. If you could call me back or text me or something, that would be great. He sent cool gentle rain that trickled through the airholes and provided Danae and the baby with fresh water to drink. He persuaded his brother, the sea god Poseidon, to calm the waves and change the currents so the box would have a smooth journey.
Poseidon even caused little sardines to leap onto the box and wriggle through the airholes so Danae could enjoy fresh sushi. My dad, Poseidon, is awesome that way. So, instead of drowning or dying of thirst, Danae and Perseus survived just fine. After a few days, the S. Wooden Box approached the shore of an island called Seriphos, about a hundred miles east of Argos. Danae and the baby still might have died, because that box lid was nailed shut tight.
Fortunately, a fisherman named Dictys happened to be sitting on the beach, mending his nets after a hard day of pulling in the fish.
Dictys saw this huge wooden box bobbing on the tide and thought, Whoa, that's weird. He waded into the water with his nets and hooks, and dragged the box to the beach. Inside sat Danae and baby Perseus - both of them grubby and tired and smelling like day-old sushi, but very much alive. Dictys helped them out and gave them some bread and water.
Oh boy, Danae thought, more bread and water! The fisherman asked Danae what had happened to her. She decided to go light on the details. After all, she didn't know where she was, or if the local king was a friend of her dad's. For all she knew, she'd landed in Hackensack. She just told Dictys that her father had kicked her out because she'd fallen in love and had a child without his permission.
He believed her immediately. Despite Danae's grubby appearance, he could tell she was beautiful enough to attract a god. And, from the way she talked and her general composure, he guessed she was a princess.
Dictys wanted to help her and the little baby, but he had a lot of conflicting emotions.

He's the king of this island. He would probably welcome Danae a little too warmly. Danae frowned. I mean, no offence. Fishermen are cool.
She was uneasy about seeking help from King Polydectes, but she didn't see another option, unless she wanted to stay on the beach and make a hut out of her box. In fact, maybe rub some more sand on your face. Put some seaweed in your hair. Looming above all the other buildings was the king's palace - a mass of white marble columns and sandstone walls, with banners flying from the turrets and a bunch of thuggish-looking guards at the gate.
Danae started to wonder if living in a box on the beach wasn't such a bad idea, but she followed her fisherman friend into the throne room. After a moment of silence, Yoongi breathes out and laughs. Interesting sense of humor , he notes. The two search for about an hour.
He loves talking. The sun is just beginning to start its descent when Yoongi pauses in his steps. Hoseok turns back to him, also stopping. Lots of homes and even some markets were located here. After a several long moments of Yoongi remaining frozen with his hand on the hilt of his sword, he finally sighs and relaxes.
Shall we continue? Hoseok yells out in surprise and jolts backwards. The prince is no coward, but he knows when to back down and let someone else protect him. He is unarmed due to still being in his dance robes, and though he can probably take the assailant with some deft, calculated moves, he chooses to stand to the side.
Instead, he watches Yoongi protect him. The attacker is draped in a dark, hooded outfit that obscures both his face and body.
His movements are aggressive, but his emotions are anything but. The strike had been with the butt of the sword rather than the blade, but the assailant still hunches over the point of connection with a grunt of pain. Yoongi pauses. He and the attacker merely stare at one another, neither making a move to finish the other off. The stranger straightens his back, and the light collides with his mostly-covered face. Confusion swells in his mind once again.
The shrouded assailant lets out a heavy sigh, and his tall frame sinks a little.
His mouth opens to say something to Yoongi, but before he can, the sound of hurried footsteps arises from a nearby alley. Hoseok notes how fast the man is just as the knights begin to chase after him.
From where the guards had emerged now comes a woman with fading golden hair and a modest crown of gold-painted olive leaves and sun rays. Instead, she runs straight for Hoseok as her remaining guards move to apprehend Yoongi. Hoseok smiles at his mother. What if that man was one of the killers? He looks over her shoulder and gestures toward Yoongi, who is now frowning as two knights hold him by the arms.
I was helping him look for his brother when we were attacked. He protected me. Hoseok knows realistically that she would never do that, at least not without a fair trial, but his mother can be very protective at times.
Yoongi opens his mouth as if to speak, but then seems to decide against it and ducks his head instead. Is that true?
Which story is the truth? Is either of them true? Who exactly is Min Yoongi? Her smile remains on her face, but it is unmoving and concrete.

The grin is carved into her skin as if she were a beautiful, un-cracked marble statue. Again, Yoongi shakes his head. He seems to have a hard time meeting her eyes. We were just passing through. Yoongi licks his lips, and Hoseok picks up that the other man is nervous. Why would he be nervous, though?
Hoseok suspects the latter. Then again, he did protect Hoseok from an attacker. That, to Hoseok, is admirable. No matter where Yoongi came from. In Illenheia, the queen currently has the final say in all that goes.
Hoseok admires her a lot, given how much she carries on her shoulders. Her eyes hold so must trust and fondness as she gazes at Hoseok, a silent question passing between the two. Sohui gives him a short nod before turning back to Yoongi and her knights. A deep breath passes through her lungs before she speaks, an ever-present pressure weighing on her soul. You may not have come to Illenheia seeking refuge, but, by my hand, we reach out to you.
You will be treated like our own and given a place among us. His body appears weak as the guards hold him by his arms.
She stands tall, and her smile flashes as bright as the sun above her. You put a stranger before your own safety- someone that you owe nothing to. She takes a step forward toward Yoongi and motions to her guards to release him. Yoongi meets her gaze head on now, eyes no longer darting in doubt. His lips are lightly parted, but he remains silent as Sohui continues. So, please, Yoongi, accept my offer.
He had to focus on the fact that his mom was offering to allow Yoongi to live in Illenheia. It was extremely- no, extraordinarily rare for people to move there.
Percy Jackson's Greek Gods
What would I do? The queen continues to eye Yoongi with deep interest and a wise caution, but her gratitude for him standing up for Hoseok shines above all. Yoongi looks equally in suspense. Sohui beams. Be his bodyguard and defend him from any harm.
Do you not realize that? What if he was just a reluctant thief trying to punch some money out of me to feed his kids, huh? He hates being shadowed day and night.Or maybe it was because Danae was knockout gorgeous. That would give him plenty of privacy with the girl of his dreams.
However, if your child just 'accidentally' expired in an underground bronze cell ,,, that wasn't strictly murder. The people love it. WordPress Shortcode. Fortunately, a fisherman named Dictys happened to be sitting on the beach, mending his nets after a hard day of pulling in the fish. Which is not to say that his life didn't suck. They walk in silence for a short while longer, Hoseok having decided to remain quiet as they search.
Then, for dessert, we'll die painful tragic deaths. Put on your lion-skin cape.
