The earThquake ThaT shook mounT olympus A long time ago in 1200 B.C, on Mount Olympus a horrible earthquake shook the land. On Mount Olympus was Hades, god of the underworld Hades was not in the underworld because he was looking for people he could take and lock up. The earthquake finally shook the feet under Hades. Hades backed off the mountain a little bit because he started to see holes open up. What Hades didn’t know was that the mountain was a huge volcano. A few seconds later magma began to shoot out of the volcano and it almost melted Hades. The magma was destroying everything around him. Hades was not the type of guy to help people so he just watched as the city burned to ground. Suddenly while Hades was watching a toxic gas flew right into his face. Hades was going to guy and he had to get out of there quick because the magma was coming his way. A person from the city saw him and he began to run towards Hades. The guy was a doctor. Hades told him to go fast and get his chariot. A few moments later the doctor returned with the chariot. The doctor helped Hades into the chariot and he got in too. Later when both of them got to a safe place the doctor was able to help Hades. Many people died during the eruption and he felt very bad that he didn’t help. The lesson Hades learned was that he will always help the innocent people in danger. This is the myth about Hades a guy of evil who learned a lesson when he didn’t try to help people in danger but they helped him.

Dining Hot Spots The gods everywhere tell their favorite restaurants all around Greece. Zeus gives “Lightning Strike” four stars. We asked Zeus about it and he says “the food was great”. A dish Zeus recommends is the electric eel entrée. He says that “it was like eating lightning”! On the other hand in the underworld Hades gives “Flaming Shish kabob” two stars. Hades says “you should rather eat dirt than this horrible food!”

Once upon a time there was a young man named Joseph. Joseph was young, handsome, and a very popular guy from Athens. He was a part of rich and powerful aristocratic family. Young girls from all over Athens dreamed of one day being chosen by Joseph to be his wife. Joseph had an older sister named Elizabeth who has always been over protective of him. She would often tell people there wasn’t a girl alive worthy of her brother Joseph. This always worried Joseph because he knew Elizabeth could be very violent if she didn’t get her way. Joseph realized the god Zeus was the only god he could talk to about his sister’s over protectiveness. Zeus was a very powerful and strong god. He is the king of gods. Zeus is known as the type of god that understands relationship problems. People often went to a very famous oracle on top of an acropolis to talk to the god. Joseph went to the oracle one day to talk about a beautiful girl named Melissa. He wanted Melissa in his life but was afraid of what Elizabeth would do to her. Joseph asked Zeus if he should bring her to his home to meet his family or keep her a secret. Zeus said “you must be open to your family and bring her home.” So that’s what Joseph did. Joseph came into town looking for Melissa. He found her at the market. Joseph told Melissa he wanted her in his life. Joseph wanted Melissa to come home

to have dinner with his family that night. When Melissa got to Joseph’s house his sister acted very excited to meet her. Elizabeth asked Melissa if she wanted to take

a walk and see the family’s horses. Melissa really wanted to meet the horses and went with Elizabeth. Once they were outside and out of plain sight, Elizabeth took out a machete that she had hidden behind a tree earlier in the day and chopped off Melissa’s head. Within a second a blood-ridden head was rolling down the walkway that led to the horses. Elizabeth ran back to the house and told Joseph that she had killed Melissa. She explained to Joseph that Melissa could never be worthy of him. Later that night Joseph went to the oracle on top of the acropolis to talk to Zeus about what happened to his girlfriend. Zeus told Joseph that he had a treasure for him. It was a girl that was born with lifelong protection by the gods. This would always keep her safe from Elizabeth. The girl was beautiful but did not have a good personality. She was selfish, stuck up and greedy. But Joseph loved her and wanted to spend eternity with her. Even though she was difficult they lived happily ever after.
