" I paris, challenge the best and bravest Achaean to come out and face me in single combat"
THE ILIAD BY: Homer
"At last I'll get my revenge after you took my beloved wife Helen. I'll be the one to face you!"
DESTINY LUNA 206
Hector came along and rebuked his brother with shaming words.
"You miserable disgrace, I wish you would have never been born! You have been a curse to your father, city, your people, and now you refuse to stand against Menelaus?!"
Whoever can prove that he is better than man will be given the wealth and will carry Helen home. And all soldiers will swear solemn oaths of friendship that let us remain in our city and let the others return in their ships.
"Hector, your are entirely right and have said nothing unfair. But now, since you want me to fight against Menelaus, put us between the two armies to fight to the death for Helen and her possessions.
At last the battle began. Menelaus rushed at Paris, seizing his helmet, he spun him around and dragged him across the Achaeans, strangling him.
Aphrodite noticed and out, broke the strap. The helmet came away empty in Menelaus' hand. Before Menelaus can get back to Paris, Aphrodite swept Paris away, as a god can do.
