  • The next day, the rest of the Greeks made a big show of leaving sadly, as if in defeated. they boarded their ships and sailed away.
  • A Trojan priest approached the horse suspiciously. He walked around the horse admiring it, inspecting it, and finally rapping it with his staff.
  • The sound sent chills down the priest's throat, "I do not like the horse" he cried to King Priam "We must burn and destroy it, or else I fear it will destroy us!" Then they put the horse inside.
  • The Trojans celebrated , drinking, feasting and dancing, having to be very happy.
  • Later that night, the belly of the horse opened and the band of soldiers crept out, they quietly opened the gates to their army. The Greeks swept in and killed all who challenged them, The Greeks had finally won the war!
