A long time ago in Ancient Greece near Mount
Olympus there was a beautiful island with white sand and a crystal clear
aqua blue sea. This island was very close to a similar island, so close
most people could swim between them. Here, when the sunset began, baby
crabs crawled out of the sea making scratchy noises with their pincers.
Dolphins jumped happily and did backflips while high above the sea. Sea
turtles stretched their necks to Zeus and Nami to say hello.
Zeus loved sea creatures so much that most of them became his own pets.
The pets loved Zeus too, except when he gets angry.
Zeus lived with his wife Nami in a cabin-styled castle. Zeus was a
happy, calm person. When he was relaxing, the sea had soft waves and the
whole island was quiet with a little splashing noises. When he was
happy, the sea started to get a little bit of a breeze in the water for
a perfect day of swimming. When he was MAD, this sea and any random
ocean could have a tsunami. Nobody liked that
Tsunamis got started when it was a cloudy day and Zeus was near the
ocean. Out of nowhere, someone bumped into Zeus, fell in the water, and
made a big big splash. He was angry as a raccoon standing up on two
“HEY, WATCH OUT!” he said angrily.
‘‘Sorry, I didn’t mean to.’’
‘‘What’s your name?”
He saw how beautiful she was and said, ”Oh, sorry I screamed at you. My
name is Zeus.’’
‘‘I understand. I wasn’t looking where I was going,’’ Nami said smiling.
Zeus and Nami got married on the day that marked two years of knowing
each other, the day when he fell in the water. Zeus and Nami wanted to
name the big humongous wave that had been created then. Zeus thought of
Zeusnami, but thought that it was a little selfish. Nami thought of
Zeusandnami . Finally they thought of Tsunami, and that’s how “tsunamis”
got their name.
One day Zeus suddenly heard a noise where his castle was. When he
entered his castle, it was half destroyed. He was so mad his face was
like a tomato. You could see more and more boats coming toward his
island with weapons. Zeus and his wife knew people would try to kill him
to prevent tsunamis from happening. They stayed on the island, standing
on a path of sand. Since he was mad that his castle was destroyed, there
were three tsunamis in the sea off the island. All the people left. Zeus
and his wife were so happy they called that island “Island of the
A year after the castle was destroyed, Nami was pregnant. Zeus and Nami
were so happy!! After the baby girl was born, they wanted to name her
Zeana. Zeana looked more like Nami and Zeus. Zeana also loved sea
creatures. She had a new-born turtle that was injured and lost as a pet.
Zeus, Nami, and Zeana lived with no more drama, no trouble, no
bothering. But there is always a tsunami with a storm or grey clouds
that comes out when Zeus gets angry. The good thing is that he does not
get angry a lot.
