The island of Crete had a palace full of twists and turns that belonged to King Minos. His palace was dark, which made it harder for you to see where you were going. The palace would make you feel as if something was crawling on your skin because of its creepiness. As you sniff, the smell of the dead arises into your nose. Walking by each room, you can hear a banging sound. Everywhere you go, you can taste the saltiness of the ocean. The sounds of whimpering and cries of other people are easily heard.

Dave searched each room very carefully before leaving because he could end up missing his one-way ticket out of the palace.
Man, this place gives me the creeps, Dan thought. Just as he walked into a room, a bull attacked him and was killed. The guard forgot to mention that the bulls have very quick instincts. This pattern kept repeating until one person was left standing; Dave. He was lucky that when the bulls charged at him, Dave was able to dodge the hits.
