Zombies Invade Mount Olympus

by Jack

Olympus was surrounded. Thousands of zombies wherever you looked. “Volumus cerebrum!” they chanted as they marched towards the gods. The gods were not afraid of these zombies but they wondered where they all came from. Zeus called Hermes over to him and asked for him to get Ares, the god of war, to help fight off these zombies. Hermes strapped on his winged shoes and found Ares in Rome. He told Ares about how the zombies had gotten onto Mount Olympus and Ares followed him back without asking any questions.

Back on Mount Olympus, the zombies were getting closer and closer and it seemed like they would not stop coming. That is when Athena, the goddess of battle strategy, proposed a plan to Zeus. She said that before they start to fight the zombies they should ask them why they are here and how. Zeus called out to all of the zombies, “Why are you here?” They responded with, “Non dicumus.” Zeus was frustrated with this and told Athena to capture a zombie and question him. She snuck out and went to the back of the group of zombies. She grabbed one and went back to Zeus. The zombie was trying to free from the grasp of Athena but he couldn’t. Zeus strapped him down to a chair to ask him questions. “Non timidus est.” The zombie said. Zeus told him to shut up and asked why he was here. “Non deorum amant,” the zombie responded. Then Zeus asked who sent them. The zombie hesitated and then told. “Hadus nos mittumus,” the zombie said. Zeus yelled, “What? Why would he do such a thing. “Hadus cum derorum iratus est.” That was all the gods needed to hear.

A few minutes later, Hermes arrived with Ares and Ares was ready to fight. Zeus told Hermes and Ares why the zombies were here and called Artemis, goddess of the hunt, over to fight as well. Zeus, Ares and Artemis went out to fight the zombies. After hours of fighting, all of the zombies were dead. “We did it!” Ares shouted with joy. As they walked back to their temple they heard voices. “Nos advenimus iterum,” another wave of zombies groaned. There were more than before, coming even faster towards the temple of the gods. The confused gods looked back at the massive horde of zombies and knew that killing the zombies wouldn’t stop them; they had to go to the underworld and stop Hades.

The four gods (Zeus, Ares, Artemis and Hermes) avoided the mass of zombies and went to the underworld to find Hades. As they entered, Hades’ guard dog, Cerberus, was waiting. The four gods unleashed on him and defeated him. They then found Hades. Hades turned around, startled, and was not ready to face the gods. Behind Hades were thousands and thousands of zombies who were entering a teleporter which seemed to lead to Mount Olympus. Hades yelled, “Get them zombies!” 50 of the closest zombies attacked the four gods yelling, “Hadus omnes salvete.” The gods easily fought off the zombies and told Hades to stop sending the zombies. Hades refused so the gods knew they would have to destroy the zombies and the teleporter.

Hades kept sending more and more zombies towards the gods as they yelled, “Deorum odimus.” The four gods quickly developed a plan. Hermes would distract the zombies while Artemis and Ares would fight them and Zeus would sneak over to the teleporter so he could destroy it with a thunderbolt. Hermes ran circles around the zombies while Ares sworded them and Artemis shot arrows into them. Zeus chucked a thunderbolt at the teleporter and destroyed it with only one. Then he helped the gods defeat the other zombies. Hades didn’t do anything because he knew he could not stop the gods. A few hours later all of the zombies were dead and Hades’ plan to destroy Olympus was ruined.
The gods safely returned to Olympus to find that all of the zombies were dead there as well. They walked in the temple and saw the zombie they had tied up long before. He was trying to escape but couldn’t. The gods decided not to kill him but to make him their slave. He would have to serve in Olympus for as long as he lived and whenever the gods talked to him he would have to call them “Dominus meus.” Hades never tried to destroy Olympus again.
