Just before the attack on the suitors, Telemachus follows Ulysses's orders and fetches shields and weapons for himself, his father, Eumaeus, and Philoetius. However, he makes what mistake?
He takes too long gathering everything from the store room.
He loses heart and hides himself upstairs with Penelope.
He leaves the store room door open and Melanthius arms the suitors.
He trusts Melanthius to carry the weapons back to Ulysses.
He curses Jove who is insulted and sends a negative omen.
