War of Hetsharate
Writer: Gouri Nambiar

Once upon a time, 2700 years ago, Queen Artemisa used her magical powers to create a kingdom. It was a beautiful place that she named Hetsharate. Up in Olympus, Zeus, the Greek God of thunder, heard of this kingdom and grew jealous. As Artemesia arranged her kingdom, Zeus decided to visit it.

When he reached Hetsharate, he was awestruck. It was magnificent, and Zeus wanted the kingdom for himself. ‘But how?’ he thought to himself, and suddenly, an idea struck him. He went to Artemisa’s palace to meet her.

“Artemisa, I am Zeus!” He declared. The queen bowed before him.

“Oh, Lord Zeus, what can I do for you?” The queen asked.

“Your powers. If you refuse, I will destroy Hetsharate,” the god demanded.

Artemisa was furious. How dare the god threaten her. “I will not give you my powers, or my kingdom!” she replied angrily.

Zeus was enraged. “Then you will fight me in a war, and hand over Hetsharate to me if you lose,” he challenged.

“So be it,” Artemisa said. They took out their swords and clashed them.

Soon, both Zeus and Artemisa began preparing for the war. They decided that the war will be fought by those who possessed thermonuclear powers.

The day of the war arrived, and the fight began. Much to Artemisa’s shock, Zeus started using his thunder powers.

“Zeus! This is cheating!” She shouted. The god didn’t stop, and the thunderbolts started hurting Hetsharate’s soldiers. Artemisa used her powers and created a protective layer to protect her soldiers.

Zeus saw this and made his attacks stronger, but wasn’t able to break the protective layer. Finally, Artemisa won the battle and Zeus accepted defeat.

Free from Zeus’s threat, Artemisa ruled Hetsharate wisely and justly for many years.
