Hermes searched everywhere with the 3 women to try to find Paris.
Finally, they find Paris. Now time to find out who he would pick out of the 3 woman to be given the apple and be claimed to be the fairest in the land.
Hera spoke first. Telling him that she will give him power greater than any king. She would also make him lord of Asia and Greece. Paris thought of having lots of power and thought of how life would be different as a king.
Athena said that she would give Paris wisdom. Then he would be the wisest man on the earth. With the knowledge, he would gain power and be able to get anything his heart desires. Paris now thought that being wise is better then being the king.
Last it was Aphrodite. She told him that she will give him the most beautiful woman in the world, Helen. Even though Helen already had a husband, she promised that Paris will have her no matter what.
Paris quickly picked Aphrodite. Both Hera and Athena thought he picked wrong and stormed away. Aphrodite is chosen to be the fairest.
