"What is this...you are cheating on me with Paris?" shouted Menelaus, king of Sparta.
"Yes I have and I' am not ashamed of it, he gives me my
needs!" exclaimed Helen.
" I have the wisdom of Athena and the love of Aphrodite
Menelaus, there is no way you can take her away from
me now," whispered Paris with a smile.
With the quickness of a cheetah he grabbed Helen and
ran off into the sun headed towards Troy.
" I did not take an oath to protect her for no reason,
I' am not breaking my honor and word I took to her
father now," Menelaus thought to himself.
He commanded his men to go out to Troy, find her for
rescue, and bring her back. With one thousand ships he
hoped to storm Troy and definitely succeed.
Agamemnon, brother to Menelaus, led the Greek forces.
The fleet of one thousand ships was delayed off the
Greek coast. The winds continued to blow west, the
opposite direction the Greeks needed to sail to Troy.
Agamemnon consulted an oracle which told him to
sacrifice his daughter to Artemis and the winds would
turn. He complied with the oracle, an act for which his
wife never forgave him. After the sacrifice, the Greek
ships headed east for Troy.
After Zeus was informed of the horrible incident that
happened he ordered Poseidon to freeze the sea so he
could take a horse across to Troy. Once he arrived he
noticed the battle had begun 9 years early. He
immediately reached for his lighting spear and shouted
to stop. His shout with the spear caused it to shoot
lightning at the city and burst into flames. With all of the
city of Troy set a fire the 10 years of war were over with
only few survivors of the Trojans Greeks remaining
