The Spinning Wheel

The Spinning Wheel

Spinning, spinning, forever she is spinning…

Once upon a time in a faraway land, there lived a master weaver named Arachne who challenged the goddess Athena to a weaving contest.

That didn’t end well for her.

Everyone has heard the tale of how Arachne became a spider. But few know the story of how she gifted Aphrodite with a gown spun from moonbeams, and in return, earned the chance to fall deeply in love and become a maiden again. Having learned her lesson for seeking glory and fame in her past life, she changed her name to Ariana and vowed to settle for a commoner, so as not to draw Athena’s wrath upon her once more.

Ariana stayed true to her plan, until one day a prince came knocking at her door…
