Monster Attack

A myth submitted to the site by Mike Hsieh

Athens, Ancient Greece

2500 years ago in Ancient Greece, there was a peaceful city called Athens. It was a blazing hot and sweaty day and many people were at the local agora. A robber, who was creepy, stole some money from the sardine trader. Some women, who were old and tall, were arguing over a beautiful amphora. A fisherman, who was strong, was selling fish from the ocean nearby. Suddenly a booming growl entered the agora and everybody looked around the agora.

Gargrle, the terrible creature, had been sent by Hades. Gargrle was the most powerful monster in Ancient Greece. He had a body of a horse and on his head there was a golden horn that was a sharp hunting knife that killed people easily. Its body smelt like rotten cheese that had stayed under the sun for 100 years. Anybody who looked in his eyes would become rock. Nobody dared to come near Gargrle because they were afraid to been kick out. Its ears smelt like ants eating a dead bird’s brain. Its teeth were like destroyed colonnades .It was as tall as ten mountains with the Parthenon on them.

The monster entered the agora. Terrified citizens ran into the temple of Zeus. Gargrle kicked the building into pieces. A citizen was trampled by the monster and the blood was everywhere. Next, it swung its tail and the statue of Zeus’ head fell onto a sardine shop. The monster entered the temple and when it was about to eat a man, it had been shot by lightning. The monster went out of the temple and ate all of the people who weren’t inside. Blood flew out from its mouth. It wanted to eat all of the people in Athens.

The survivors were all tired, but they wanted revenge. The king and queen of Athens decided to send messages around Greece to look for a hero could help. Saga, who was flying in the sky, got the message which been blown to the sky. Saga came from the Eastern part of Greece and he was a son of god. He looked like a soldier with a pair of wings. He wanted to help because his dad said if anyone needed help, you should help them. Saga went to the place where the king lived.
“I want to defeat the monster for your city,” said Saga.
“Just a small human can defeat a monster! Get out of here!” shouted the king.
“No no, I’m the son of the Eastern gods,” replied Saga.
“OK,” said the king.

The monster came to the city after they had talked. Saga went out of the place where the king lived. Saga found out it was difficult to fight with Gargrle. Would he win? Or lose? He didn’t know. He felt scared. He knew he had to protect Athens. If he lost, Gargrle would attack another city of Greece. Gargrle shot the lighting with its horn. Saga shot the fire with his sword and used his shield to defend the lighting. Sometimes Saga was winning, but sometimes losing. Saga was kicked by Gargrle. Gargrle was shot by fire, but it didn’t work. Saga raised his God sword and pointed at Gargrle and Gargrle was shot by the lightning. It worked this time. Gargrle was angry. It shot many lighting bolts, but they all missed. Some of them had just been defended by the light around Saga. Gargrle was angrier now. It become red and Gargrle spat fire at Saga until there was a boom…

After the boom, everybody in Athens saw Gargrle had died. When the smoke was gone, Saga came out. The survivors were all cheerful because the monster had died. The king had a very big symposium with Saga as the guest of honor. All the citizens of the land were invited. The party went on for three days and three nights. Citizens drank wine, ate fine food and danced merrily. Slaves entertained the guests with singing and other party tricks. The party was messy and noisy, but everyone had lots of fun. When the celebration was over, the king ordered the citizens to build a statue of Saga. Then they rebuilt the agora and the other buildings, which had been destroyed. Saga’s statue still stands today to remind everyone of this brave hero from Ancient Greece.
