This Means War!

I bellowed with rage and frustration as I saw my son’s Student Of The Year Trophy melt away to nothing.

Despite the numerous handicaps that he faced because of his background, our son had not only topped his year in every subject, but also excelled in sports, drama, and classical arts.

But now, the symbol of his achievement was disappearing right in front of our eyes, along with our ancestral home, our city, and our people. All this while THEY pandered to their hedonistic lifestyles, with their homes lit up even during the day, their central air-conditioning in operation across seasons, and their gadgets polluting the atmosphere so that their lives could become ‘easier’.

“ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!” I shouted, and our already crumbling city shook with the intensity of my emotions. If war is what would stop them, war is what they would get, but these ‘Gods’ of Asgard had to start living in a more eco-friendly & sustainable manner, or it would mean the end of us Frost Giants forever.
