The Bad Invention

A myth submitted to the site by Ayla Huf

Mountain Olympia, Greece

The gods and goddesses where having a conference. To hear any new ideas they had to help the world. I t was Inventionora, the inventing goddesses’ turn. She revealed a telepathic robot to assist the gods with their daily chores so they would have more time to help the world. The robot also gave you whatever you wanted. The temple of Olympia suddenly shook as if it thought it would turn and destroy all of civilization. Zeus thought it was a fantastic idea.

The robot would help his wife, Hera. When Hera came in, she was very impressed and took it to the kitchen to right away to do dishes. Zeus, plodded up to the front to show of his hand controlled lightning bolt. All the gods and goddesses left, and flew over the leafless trees and bare ground. It was Autumn. “Nike your invention to stop the leaves littering the ground is amazing!” Zeus bellowed in his frightening low voice.

The robot finished its jobs in record time so, Hera called it ‘Record’. When Record finished it’s jobs, it was free to do whatever it wanted. One day, Record went for a walk and found Hades behind a drooped old tree. Since Record was so nice, it trusted Hades.

Hades was a murderous god of the underworld. His plan was to use the robot for horrible things. “ Record,” Hades asked evilly baring a sligh smirk on his dreaded face, I need Nike’s soul!”
At the next god and goddess conference, that is exactly what Record did.

Immediately, Zeus flew to the underworld to recover Nike’s soul. Flying at full speed he helped Nike up and onto the bed.

From then on Inventionora was a mortal. Record was smashed with piercing lightning bolts and plunged into the underworld.

To this day there is no god to Invent things like cars and boats just from one small mistake.
