I'm not the one who has a hatred of him. It is Poseidon who does. If only he didn't kill Polyphemus he would be home. But, I will grant you permission to go down and talk to his son Telemachus.
Zeus please give Odysseus mercy. He already has already been through so much tragedy and pain.
I am Mentes, a old friend of your father. I have a vision. Odysseus is still alive out at sea on his long journey home. Your mother can't get married. You must send all her suitors away. After that, you must take a journey to Pylos and find news about your father.
My mother isn't ready for a wedding. She dislikes every suitor that comes here. I want to make her happy so I will do what you say. \
Who is this strange person? Are they a goddess? How else do they have these visions?
Later at home...
Telemachus this bard is upsetting me. It keeps reminding me of the tough journey home from Troy.
It's alright mother, go to your chamber and relax. I can deal with the suitors for now.
None of you suitors are good for my mother. By tomorrow you all must go leave my father's estate.
He just claimed to be an old friend...
A guest of mine had a vision that he was still alive and making his way back to Ithaca.
Your father's estate? He's dead and has no right to the throne.
Can we know about this guest. Where are they from? Someone with that kind of vision must be from the gods.
