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!

Usagi Kita: This story is emotional from beginning to end. You get to watch the characters struggle and grow, maturing in different ways so that they come to be the people they are meant to be. Inea is insanely adorable, and his antics made me laugh more than once, and Kaedon is perfect for him in so many wa...

Lauren Suzmeyan-Raine: I'm so glad you found a place to post your stories. I was horrified when I saw yours had been taken down, they are definitely the best 'reading' stories I've ever read. And I've made it my business to read every one I can. Well done.Lauren

emilie14: Omg!!! This is a very well written, twisted, emotional, has you hanging on the edge of your seat book!!

ram123: Beautifully written novel, engrossing from start to finish. Great story, clever and imaginative adventure of two young sisters in Victorian England. Story moved at a quick pace .Looking forward to the second book. Congratulations to the author I predict that this will be a very successful series.

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

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...

Tony Lee: Very interesting with good ideas! Would recommend it as a casual read. Been depressed for quite some time but this novel kept me occupied for about a week. If you enjoy fiction-thriller novels with some magic involved, then this is the novel for you.

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

Alice Liu: Whoa! I've been wondering how would the Maurauders react to Harry's life and here we go! YOU ARE THE BEST! All the characters are consistent with their personalities shown in the book! I love how you compare Lily with Molly and it's definitely true for her being a mother! I wish Peter comes have ...
