I must go to find the beautiful maiden Nausicaa
Ask you father to supply us with mules so that we may go to wash our clothes at the cisterns so we can look suitable for men.
Yes my dear, right away!
Father dearest, may I take a mule and large wagon with my maidens and clean all of our clothes at the cleaning cisterns?
"So here Odysseus slept, overcome by sleep and toil; but Athene went off to the country and city of the Phaeacians" (Homer 77)
"Athene took the form of the famous sea captain Dymas' daughter, a friend of Nausicaa... coming up to the girl's bedside like a breath of wind, she stood at her head and" spoke to her while Nausicaa was asleep (Homer 78).
When we are done, let us all commence in a ball game.
"Morning came and woke Nausicaa... she therefore went to the other end of the house to tell her father and mother" about how she needs to go to the washing cisterns (Homer 78).
I wonder what that noise was, let me go and see what it is.
*Loud Noise occurs followed by laughter*
"Then Nausicaa took the whip and reins and lashed the mules on, whereon they set off, and their hoofs clattered on the road. They pulled without flagging, and carried not only Nausicaa and her wash of clothes, but the maids also who were with her" (Homer 79).
"When they reached the waterside they went to the washing cisterns, through which there ran at all times enough pure water to wash any quantity of linen, no matter how dirty"(Homer 79).
After a ball falls into the water and the women start to shout, they "woke Odysseus, who sat up in his bed of heaves and began to wonder what it might all be" (Homer 80).
