I based my story series on a Greek myth called Orpheus and Eurydice. Orpheus was a great singer and musician who everyone adored. He fell in love with Eurydice and the two had just been married when a poisonous snake bit Eurydice’s ankle and killed her. Orpheus, filled with grief, was determined to get his love back from the Underworld. He makes his way to the Underworld and sings to Hades and Persephone, asking to take Eurydice back with him. They are so moved by his performance that they allow him to take her back on one condition: that he would not look back at her until they reached the mortal world. He walked back to the mortal world, but he was impatient and looked before he should. All he saw was Eurydice fading back into the darkness and the last thing he heard was “Farewell”.
Don’t Look Back
