Here is the present I gave for your wedding. Never open this box!
Okay, I promise. Thank you Zeus!
I wonder what might be in this box? Why can't I open it?
Darling, I am going out now, make sure that you keep the promise.
I'm too curious about what is inside, I need to open this when my husband is not home.
No! I can't do this, I need to put the key back to where I found it.
At the last moment of opening the box, she felt a pang of guilt, and thought her husband will be really mad at her.
Uh, I'm opening it.
Where is my fine silks, gowns or gold bracelets and necklaces or even piles of gold coins?
Three more times she did this until, at last, she knew she had to look inside or she would go completely mad!
She took a deep breath, closed her eyes and slowly lifted the lid off the box.
Crying in pain
Let me out Pandora, please.
Zeus had packed the box full of all the terrible evils he could think of. Out of the box poured disease and poverty. Out came misery, out came death, out came sadness - all shaped like tiny buzzing moths.
Darling, nothing inside the box could be worse than the horrors that had already been released.
It's fine, open the lid.
So they opened the lid once more.
Even though Pandora had released pain and suffering upon the world, she had also allowed Hope to follow them.
