Mondays Finish the Story – Sandpit Wars

2015-06-08-bw-beacham

For this week’s MFTS challenge, I’m taking some inspiration from a story that I’m working on (kind of) about the old gods..

 Finish the Story begins with: “Zeus was not having a good day and he made sure everyone knew it.”

He had just turned himself into a dolphin, ready for a serious day of frolicking in the Aegean with a couple of mermaids when he finally got the call.

And now he was sitting in a cramped little cave in the middle of theTibetan Himalayas freezing his tan off.

“Odin, just so you know, next time I choose the venue, yeah?”

He looked around the crowded room. “So who’re we waiting on?”

Buddha sat on cave floor, eyes closed, with a soft smile playing on his lips. “Your daughter, Thunder God. The goddess of the Earth.”

“That bloody, Gaia, never on time. She’s probably off saving a rainforest somewhere.. Apollo, go and get your sister.”

“But Father.. it’s not sunrise yet.” A bolt of lightening struck the God of the Sun as he ran out the cave.

Zeus turned back to the Old Father. “Right. So what’s the plan to save humanity?”

  1. Love this story… the notion of Budda and Zeus joining together to save humanity is wonderful. Such dichotomy in their philosophies, and yet it seems so natural they would combine forces. Love the line about the venue…. funny.
