The crew sailed upon an island of people worshiping a flower. it turns out to be the Lotus flower. they soon realized that they were at the land of the Lotus Eaters.
The people who lived amongst the lotus flowers took the crew to admire the mega lotus flower that has lived for years.
Touch it... it's so easy
After the first person touched the flower then two other's touched it except for odysseus.
After the three members of Odysseus's crew touched the flower they felt the urge that they wanted to stay at the island forever. They tried to urge Odysseus into touching the beautiful flower of the land but he refused. Once he refused he tried talking the crew members to leave with him but they pulled away and would not leave.
Odysseus tied up his crew members and laid them under the seats of the boat.
Get us out of here!!
And once again, Odysseus and his crew were out on they're sea faring.
