The Lotus Eaters

Ah, and just when I thought that things couldn’t get any worse, it did. The power of Zeus’s winds swept us to another island of the Lotus Eaters. Odysseus was going to pick three of his trusted men to go check out what was on the island. Knowing that he was probably going to pick me, I quickly moved to the back of the ship. I was still suffering from a small case of post traumatic stress from the war, but the nurse of the crew was very benevolent and help soothe my nerves. The men went onto the island, but we didn’t hear anything from them for a while, maybe not for a few hours. The King got impatient long enough and went to find the men he sent.

Well, good thing I did hide! He found them hooked on the Lotus plant, which makes them lose all hope for reaching homeland makes them want to stay on the island for more. Is this some kind of trickery Poseidon has played on our men!?!? He made the rest of us stay on the ship and Odysseus dragged them back on. Such irony how they want to go back and eat some more, so much that they will lose their whole brain! Odysseus was not pleased at all.
