Page 85-86 Once again, Athena intervenes in helping Odysseus get back home. In this case she is in the form of a young girl, and Odysseus says to her, "My child,' said the good Odysseus, 'I wonder if you could show me the way to the house of Alcinous, the King of his country?" To this Athena (the little girl) responds, "'Sir, certainly I'll show you the house you want, since it lies close to my good father's place. But you must follow my lead without a word, look at nobody and ask no questions."
Page 87-88 Now that Odysseus had made it to the palace, he is ready to confront the queen and king. "But the much-enduring good Odysseus walked straight up the hall, wrapped in the mist that Athena shed about him, till he reached Arete and King Alcinous and threw his arms around Arete's knees." Then Odysseus begins his plea for help and says, "'But for me please arrange an escort to my own country, as soon as may be, for I have had to live through many harships far from my friends.'"
Page 89-90 Since Odysseus has proposed his idea to get the Phaeacians to help him home, Alcinous must consult with his people and order them to do what he decides. The elder Echeneus speaks on behalf of this to try and give Alcinous an idea of what he should do. Finally Alcinous makes his decision and says to his people, "'We will then take up the matter of his passage so as to ensure him without trouble or anxiety the happiness of a speedy return to his country under our escort, however far away it is. We will safeguard him on the way from any further hardship or accident till he sets foot on his own land.'" In saying this, Alcinous has agreed to help Odysseus reach his homeland once again with the help of his men to avoid any possible danger that could be encountered on the way.
