The old leaky apartment was not what she was used to, but it was a lot better than her previous accommodations.

“Look to him, he stirs.” Hope urged her assistant. Pandora obliged, running her sharp blade through Zeus’s bound torso. His scream reverberated in the silence, but Hope wasn’t worried. The grilled windows and walls were soundproof.

Many millennia ago she was crammed into that jar with those abominations by the gods. They bruised and scarred her. Innocent Pandora lost her husband’s love- oh, the injustice!

But no more. Hope smiled. She would have her revenge now.

Hi! I'm Sam, an 18 year old certified mad chick who likes to imagine that she can write. I live in India, a colourful, diverse country which is sadly getting polluted everyday by more and more violence....something no citizen can be proud of. I enjoy reading-basically horror, watching romcoms and horror flicks(yes, again horror, my favourite being Sinister- its psychotic just like me), eating( food, oh yes, I love foooooood), attending college, and most of all(oh, do stay and listen a while longer) I love animals. I have periodic urges to own and look random "pets". Currently I wish to own a baby elephant, which I will name Thama. I write to express what I feel, to keep that small creative bone alive in my body, and to make readers happy. I hope you like what I write!

  1. Gruesome and a nice link to mythology. Poor Hope, being left all alone in the jar, time for some payback!

  2. I’ve always wondered about dear Pandora. She always seems to get the short end. Well done.

  3. Sam, Well written. I don’t think I want to know what happens next. I have too good an imagination. She had all that time in the jar to plot her revenge. Good story. 🙂 —Susan

  4. So it was not enough with Zeus… wonder who is next.. I have missed your gruesome plots

  5. With this mythology having sprung right here, in Greece, I’m excited by your choice. Gruesome and effective!

    Greetings from Greece!

  6. Dear Sam,

    I’ve missed you.

    What a way to seek revenge. Nicely done or should I say, “well executed?”



  7. I love a story that draws on mythology. Pandora’s Box was one of the more fascinating ones. Revenge is a dish best served cold, and this is going to be served freezing, I’m sure.
