PoluWhen we had come to the island of the Cyclops, we found a very strange cave. It looked like it had been inhabited but, the thing living there was gone or at least gone for a moment. Right away my men and I lit a fire, burnt and offering, and ate some of the occupants cheese. Then walking through the giant passageway was a beast of man, a thing. It dumped all its belongings that it was carrying onto the floor with a great crash. This thing was ginormous Penelope! Larger then my ship and strong enough to move a solid slab of rock over head. My men and I would never have been able to even push that let alone lift it above our heads. This "thing" then turned around and asked who we were, so i proceeded to tell him that our ship was blown off course by Poseidon. The cyclops have any sympathy and got very angry, he reached down, grabbed 2 of my men and ripped them apart, then ate them. Right after he ate my men, he fell fast asleep. During this time, my men and I had been very shaken up because of this previous event, yet we began to plan a way to get out of here alive. We would have to blind the beast, but not kill it because we would need a way of pushing the giant boulder out of the way. After the monster woke, we had told him we had an honorable gift for him, wine. We gave him so much that he was drunk, and didn't really understand what was going on, but enough to remember important details. Before he passed out again, I gave him a name, my name, "Nobody." Our plan was in full speed ahead we took a stick sharpened it to a point, heated it up went over to the beast and stabbed him straight threw the eye. He jerked forward screaming, crying, and got up move the rock and cried for his brothers to save him. Screaming "Nobody, Nobody has tricked me." The brothers automatically thought their brother was crazy, so they ignored him, giving my men and I time to escape. We took off running for our ship and barely got out in time. Before Polyphemus was out of sight, I yelled and taunted him causing him to pray to the gods for a curse on my men and I.
