"The Missing Part". Essay

798 words - 3 pages

The Missing PartLong, long, long ago, on Mt. Olympus, where the Gods and Goddesses live, it wasn't a very pleasant place. It was dull, gloomy, pale, and sad, peoples' faces never had a smile on. No one cared for each other. Alpan, a young soon-to-be goddess at the time, one day asked her mother "What is missing in our world? Why is everyone dull and sad?"

I will have it in 35 days time!" "Not if I can help it. Since we are the two smartest young ones, together we will probably be able to make it in 15 days. Let us work together, we will be remembered for ever, and probably become a God of something, in YOUR case Goddess." Amor replied, in a half begging way and a half 'I want to be a God way'.
