Athos Saves the World



On a stormy ocean in a magical temple, Thiefious stole the four powers of the gods: fire, water, thunder, and earth. Without the four powers earth would dry out, collapse into chaos, and war would wage for food. So Zeus, king of the gods, sent Athos to kill Thiefious. Zeus told Athos ďIf you donít succeed by sunset, the world will collapse.Ē Thos ran, grabbed his shield, sword and spear, jumped on his horse and galloped to the temple. He saw Thiefious who stole the four powers. Athos threw his spear and hit Thiefious in the eye. He howled and the fight began. Athos blocked a fire bolt with his shield. They swung at each other until Athos won. Athos killed Thiefious and took back the powers of the gods and scattered them around the world. Thatís how we have thunder for rain, water for drink and plants, earth to make animals, rocks and trees, and fire to warm us and cook.
