Zues was angry! He had trusted two Gods Prometheus and Epimetheus.Zues took fire off the humans and that meant that they coulden't cook their food.But Prometheus the clever one went to the iland Lemnos and stoled fire and brought it back to the humans.When Zues saw a flicker of flame he was furious! He could stand no chance he would punish the humans once and for all.

He went to the island of Lemnos and got help of Haphaestos and he create a woman out of clay. The goddes Athene then breathed life into the clay, Aphrodite made her very beautiful and Hermes taught her how to be both charming and deceitful. Zues called her Pandora and he send it as a gift for Epimetheus. Prometheus warned Epimetheus that this was a trick but it was too late.Epimetheus was charmed of the woman and she would cause no harm.

Zues gave her a wedding box but it was strange because Zues says that she should never open the box.Pandora was confused and it made no sense at all.But one day when Epimetheus was out of site Pandora took no chance and she grabbed the key from the highest shelf,but she coulden't break a promise. One day she heard a voice saying "let me out" Pandora did it three more times and evantully the forth time she slid the key in and gently open it. But Zues has packed the box with evil stuff and out came disease, poverty, sadness, pain and death the creatures stung Pandora and the flew away.

Epimetheus rushed in and see why she was crying. Let me out pandora I am hope and thats whats all left. Epimetheus agreed that nothing will be worst than all that horror. Pandora gently lifted the lid and a beautiful draagonfly who was hope came out touching the wounds and healing them. Already Pandora has let out pain sickness and death she has also realesed hope
