Oh, how I long for my sweet Odysseus. There shall never be another man like him.
We shall overtake this island and declare it the property of the great Achaeus.
As she watched Odysseus' ship become smaller and smaller in sight the goddess, Calypso, fell to her knees in tears as the man she loved left her.
I need your help, great Poseidon...
Glancing over her shoulder one last time, she caught sight of a ship coming closer to her island, Ogygia. She exploded in excitement as she thought her love was coming back to her, so she started to make food and set up the island to welcome him. However, the boat did not hold her beloved, but angry soldiers, led by Achaeus, instead.
Your request amuses me. You are of the utmost stupidity to ask anything from me, ever since you allowed for my enemy, Odysseus, to roam free on these waters.
When the boat arrived upon the white sand of Ogygia, the soldiers stepped out to what they thought was a welcoming meant for them. Pleased with their landing, they claimed all the land surrounded by the island's crystal clear water as rightfully their's. Horrified and angry, Calypso wanted to stand up for her island, but was too scared to do so.
Calypso cowardly ran away to the harbor where she called upon the only god who could save her island: Poseidon. She begged for his alliance and help in defeating these intruders.
But to the island goddess' dismay, Poseidon's answer was far from what she wanted to hear...
Although she did not gain the god of water's help, the goddess took to battle against the soldiers on her island. After mere minutes of battle, her and her nymphs were easily defeated because the men were much bigger and stronger than them.
