Once upon a time, there was a beginning

In the beginning a small boy called Sakis had a donkey called Argiro.  They lived in a happy village on a lovely island in Greece.

Sakis was happy, he had a donkey and the sun shone brightly on them both.  But one day, when they frolicked in the field doing donkey things and boy things the great and most powerful god noticed them.  Zeus was powerful, but he was jealous and he didn’t like to see a human have more fun than he did.

Zeus was perturbed.  No, wait, that is not the right word, he was really pissed off.  Here was a boy on one of his, Zeus’, islands having fun and not paying enough attention to Zeus the powerful god. The boy was giving all of his attention to his donkey.

One day, Zeus came to Sakis’ village and tried to lure , the donkey away from Sakis, but Argiro would not go.  They don’t call donkeys stubborn for no reason.  Donkey was Sakis’ friend and refused to leave him.  Zeus tried many tricks to lure away the donkey.  He tried carrots, hay, and even figs, but Argiro loved Sakis and refused to leave him and go with Zeus.

Zeus was angry.
