Just Over the Hill

Fantasy / Humor

Short.

Dad: And that is how you make pepsi!
Son: Really? Is that all there is to it?
Dad: Yup.
"sound of revving engine"
Son: Dad! Slow down!
Dad: What? I'm just having a bit of fun.

Some time later... 

"engine stops running"
Dad: This looks like a good place to rest!
Son: Why here?
Dad: It's as good as any other place and besides it's only gonna be a few minutes before we're back on the road!
Son: No, really why a hill?
Dad: It has a great view!
Son: Of what?
Dad: I dunno. Well c'mon!

The sound of plodding feet approach the top of the hill and discover a single, lonely tree on top. 

Dad: That's good. It can shade us from the - oh. Looks like a storm is coming.
Son: We better get back in the car then.
Dad: In a couple of minutes. Just enjoy the view.
Son: It's quite nice.
Dad: Yes. Yes it is, isn't it?
Son: All around the mulberry bush, the rabbit chased the weasel. The rabbit thought 'twas all in-
Dad: What the hell are you doing?
Son: Singing a nursery rhyme.
Dad: I know that but why?
Son: Cause it's part of childhood and I'm just remembering it.
Dad: Oh. Mmkay.
Dad: Also, it's monkey chased the weasel not the rabbit alright?
Son: 'Kay.
Son:All around the mulberry bush, the monkey chased the weasel. The monkey thought HA!
Voice: Aaah!

lightning strikes Dad and he keels over dead. 

Son: Noooooooooooooooooooooo!
"son shakes fist"
Son: Damn you Jesus!
Voice: I am not Jesus. I am Zeus.
Son: King of Olympians?
"Zeus rolls his eyes"
Zeus: Yes, that Zeus. I'm sorry about your father but you severly startled me.
Son: I'm sorry.
Zeus: No need for apologies but unfortunately, this is a secret that must be kept until the right time comes.
Son: Why is that so unfortunate?
Zeus: Because I have to kill you to keep the secret.
Son: What?!! C-c-couldn't you just wipe my memory or something?
Zeus: We Olympians do not have such abilities.
Son: "sigh" When will the right time come then?
Zeus: It will come when it comes.
Son: That dosen't make any sense.
Zeus: It dosen't have to be.
Zeus: I must now keep the secret of our existence away from mortals for now but you will need our assistance someday and we cannot let the secret be seen by prying eyes.
Son: I'm ready to die now.
Zeus: Cool.
"lightning strikes son and dies instantly"
"Zeus walks back over to his TV and resumes munching on his chips from his bottomless chip bag."
Zeus: "laughs" I loves killin' people!

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

serginemuzac: This book had me dieing😂😂😂 It was super lit and I was reading it for the whole day. Its really interesting and I couldnt put my phone down until I finished all 22 chapters! Even though the grammer was a bit off (I actually enjoyed it, it made everything funnier) I really liked it.

Arabella: The catchy blurb caught my attention. The story is creepy but I would not qualify it as a horror story. The characters are likeable and I’m impatiently waiting for new stories from Obsidian Fae.

Judy Haun-Morelock: A very imaginative, compelling story that captivates and holds your attention. Just how will the new Joshua deal with all the changes in his life: his appearance, surroundings, new friends and enemies.

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.
