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

Zeus was not having a good day and he made sure everyone knew it.

The scorching day time temperatures hovering around 45 – 50C had brought all life to a staggering halt. ‘Climate change’ and ‘global warming’ proved to be an umbrella for governments across borders. People prayed to their Gods without any respite.

Dom had other ideas. He broke the statue of Zeus atop a hill. The bright sun was hidden behind a cover of dense clouds and Zeus hurled thunderbolts at earth.

Dom and his friends danced in the rain that followed.
