It’s All Greek to Me: A Flash-Fiction Contest—Day 3

The Goddess Inheritance by Aimee CarterWalter, also known as Zeus, is trying to save the world from complete destruction at the hands of Cronus and Calliope. If that puts Kate Winters and her newborn child in danger, it’s worth it for the sake of humanity. Many of his fellow gods on the council disagree with Walter’s course of action—including his daughter, Ava. But Walter’s not going to give up his position as King of the Gods without a fight.
