The New Zeus
It was a normal day like any other for Holly. She started her school day at eight o’clock and finished at three. After school, she went to the candy store in her neighborhood with her friend, Sally. When they got to the store ‘’ Sweet Treats”, all they saw was chocolate. Holly thought to herself, “Why is there only chocolate in this candy shop?” She asked Sally, who was wondering the same thing. They went to the candy clerk, and noticed he was looking quite different today. Instead of wearing a pink shirt and a white apron he was wearing a nice formal dress suit. Holly asked, “Why are you only selling chocolate?”, in a demanding voice.
He replied, “Because I’m Zeus the god of chocolate! I have grown tired of being king of all gods! Everyone shall eat and love this wonderful chocolate!”
“I came here to buy chewy, sour gummy bears. I have had a craving for them all day! Not everyone loves chocolate like you.”
Zeus, all of a sudden, whistled and his two headed dog Henry appeared with a snarl when they saw them. Holly and Sally soon realized they had to do something. They began by trying to explain to Zeus that not all people have the same likes and dislikes. After they explained this to him, he understood more clearly. So he let Sweat Treats have all wonderful types of candy. He said he was sorry for not realizing other people had different opinions and he was then off with his two headed dog .
He was going back to Mount Olympus to be head of all the gods.
