There were 2 kids arguing one kid with yellow curly hair who was named Phaethon and the other was Epaphus. They were racing and Phaethon won
Phaethon made it to Apollo’s temple and says “Father! It is me your son Phaethon!” Apollo looks at phaethon to see if he is his son and Apollo says
“You think you are good, but my dad is better, he is Zeus!” said Epaphus “Oh yeah, my dad is Apollo and he makes the night turn into day, he is very important!” said Phaethon, Phaethon said he has visited his dad alot and said he rode on his dads golden chariot when he really hasn't. Epaphus thought he was lying so he asked Phaethon to prove it and Phaethon accepted
Phaethon was traveling east to find his dads palace on the east side and one of Apollo’s sun hawks spot him and he goes and tells Apollo “I've Seen your Son”and Apollo says “Go find him and bring him back to me”
“Ah yes you seem fit to be my son. But why have you came, do you know that it is courteous to come to a god’s palace without an invitation?” “Yes father but i had to you see i wouldn’t of came if i didn’t say my lies were true!” said Phaethon “Oh i see, whatever you desire to make your lies come true i will grant” said Apollo “Really, anything?” Phaethon replies “Anything” says Apollo “I would like to ride your golden chariot alone” said Phaethon “What? Impossible!” said Apollo “Father please, you promised!” said Phaethon “Alright fine!” said Apollo with a slugg ish voice.
Apollo put Phaethon on the chariot and told the horses to go slow because Phaethon was new to driving the golden chariot as he flew throughout the sky he realized that he needed to go low to prove to Epaphus that he visited his dad but if he went to low the earth would start to flame but he had to prove it to Epaphus so he went low and the world went in to flames and then he realized he needed to pull up! He did but he went up to high and he froze the earth then he just repeated everything for a while until Zeus realized that on the golden chariot was not Apollo it was Phaethon. So Zeus hurled a lightning bolt and it hit Phaethon killing him and turning him into a ball of flame crashing down on the earth.
His sisters were there crying for their brothers death until Apollo couldn’t comfort them enough so Apollo turned them into trees that still cry the tears of amber sap.
You can still see the remains of Phaethon’s ride such as the ice caps, and the mountains still rumble trying to spit out the flame inside of them from the diving sun.
