The Damnation of Zeus

A myth submitted to the site by Hinako

Mount Olympus, Ancient Greece

Once upon a time in a village called Olympus an ordinary boy, called Zeus, was walking down a road and there happened to be two men squabbling over a beer. Zeus was a very naughty boy so he listened to the argument. In that argument there was some very rude words a young boy at the age of ten shouldn’t be listening to. Every day until he was fifteen years old, he would skip church to eavesdrop on the fiery arguments between the two stubborn enemies, spying on the punishments they would give to each other. In a way this was his education.

On Zeus’s fifteenth birthday Zeus was incredibly rude to everyone. When they bought him a present he didn’t like, he would give severe punishments to be done for eternity. When he in a dreadful mood, he would even give punishments out for no reason. Zeus would not only give out punishments; he would also say extremely rude things all the time that weren’t even true!

From that day on everyone became scared of him, so scared that they called him “God” for his astringent power. The people of Olympus called him God until he was sixteen. The villagers had a plan. But what?

Soon enough the atrocious day of Zeus’s sixteenth birthday came. The party was held at a wishing well. Zeus invited everyone from the village. The villagers thought that Zeus was going to make a wish there, but it couldn’t be. It couldn’t be because wishes couldn’t come true unless a strong amount of people made the same wish together. It can’t be individually. The villages thought well, but were wrong in one important matter. The boy wished to push people inside the well.

Zeus started to have fun pushing people in. That was the time when the villagers started to wish together (apart from the people who were pushed in). After a minute or so Zeus actually turned into a real God standing by a post box and read one of the letters he had. The address was to ….the king of the gods, Zeus. In mount Olympus @~# 6rg @ God land. After reading this Zeus was very happy that he had suddenly become a fearsome and dominant God far apart from all the villagers he disliked so much.

Never the less, as time went on, he noticed that the other Gods started to hate him for his cruelty. Year after year and forever, sitting in his sad and lonely Palace, Zeus always had one thought clinging onto his mind; ” how did I leave my human life and start this hideous life as a God.?”

Super ! Except for the part about the postbox I didn\'t really understand that,,
were there post boxes in Ancient Greece ?
good story one or more grammar mistakes though like \'when he in a dreadful mood\'.
Except for all this, this was a great story and worked well with greek myths (if this actual is one greek myth then great rewrite)
