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

Zeus heard words that some creature was passionate about his wife Hera. This creature was hanging around in the forest while Hera was doing her duties as a goddess. Although Zeus was not a faithful husband, he easily got angered by this news. He hurled lightning bolts and caused violent storms without delay that wreaked havoc on earth. Swarm of insects were also thrown out to that creature, punishing him and the rest of the humans for falling in love with his wife. The earth used to be thriving with life, humming with magical energy that echoed in the mountains. Now, it was booming with thunder and lightning. That creature shouldn’t have made Zeus angry.

  1. Zeus is definitely a hypocrite! Considering the number of women he chases after he shouldn’t be able to throw such a tantrum because someone has designs on Hera. Good story. 🙂

  2. Hera has her own imaginings regarding Zeus and his wandering ways. 🙂 see my entry. But so true, no man wants his wife noticed by anyone! Don’t fool with the gods, and don’t flirt with their wife! Good job!
