1. Zeus chose Paris not the goddesses 2. You took so long in the beginning 3. Look it up more please 4. Don’t change the story 5. Disappointed So I am in fifth grade and we’ve been working on Greek mythology. We did it to were we are one of the characters and I got chosen to be Aphrodite! You totally changed the story!!!! Plus just because Helen wasn’t born yet doesn’t matter. You see a lot of them were older that a lot of people they were married to. Like Zeus he is married to a lot of people and chances are they weren’t all the same age as a god!!!!! PLEASE LOOK IT UP A LITTLE MORE!!!! 😡

Amazing 😀
