Chapter 6 - The Ceremony/Moving on

The day was perfect. Nuala and Plum had found the perfect place to have a wedding, of course.

It was a big chapel for our small family wedding but it was beautiful.

As the evening drew to a close the rest of the family were getting down on the dance floor but I couldn't help but look around for the one person that wasn't there.

Blue. Who was he? Why did I feel so drawn to him when I had only seen him from the back? And would I ever see him again?

I pulled Plum aside and questioned him. I just couldn't help myself I had to know more.

"So who is he Plum?"
"Blue? A distant cousin and an old family friend." Why did I get the feeling he was holding something back?
"So why didn't he come to the wedding if he stopped by the house?"
"Blue is always travelling for work. Don't know exactly what he does but he always seems to be off in exotic locations." Exotic locations, hmmm, that sounded very interesting!
Before I could get anything else out of him Nuala was calling him over for a dance

Nuala and Plum left to go on their honeymoon and life went back to normal, sort of. Mum was travelling more than ever and with her gone dad just moped about the house.

I spent most of my free time looking after Meloire since dad seemed in capable of even looking after himself without mum.

Work was going really well. I was progressing up the ranks quickly.

It wasn't long before I started getting more responsibility. They even gave me an assignment in Al Simhara, Egypt! It wasn't a very exciting assignment, just giving some papers to a guy over there but still, Egypt!

I arrived in the early morning. The heat was already intense so I set off right away to get the documents delivered. I found my contact working in the market place and got the hand over done quickly.

Since I was told to stay in Egypt for three days I thought I would take advantage of it and do some local site seeing. While there many amazing sites in Egypt none can compare with the Great Pyramid.  I stocked up on supplies and headed there right away.

Now how do I get in this place? Ah there it is.

If I was ever in any doubt as to why it is called the Great Pyramid one step inside showed me beyond a doubt. It's enormous! I could spend weeks in this place. The rooms are a maze, you could seriously get lost down here. I wonder if that is where the legend of the mummy curse came from not actual mummies but people getting lost down here and not finding their way out. No, think of something else Rosé.

And the secret passages! I can't believe there are actually secret passages, it is like something out of an adventure novel. They are littered with treasures and jewels. I know I shouldn't but I can't help myself and one or two of the may have 'fallen' into my bag as I passed through the rooms. Hmm, what's this now?

Might as well look inside

Now which way did I come in? The door must have closed behind me and all these walls look the same. Where was it?  What was that?

Is that a....a.....a....MUMMY!

Get me out of here!!!!!!!!! I started running as fast as I could. I no longer cared for the splendours all around me I just want out. The second the door closed behind me I stopped to catch my breath.

It can't be real. It can't be real. It can't be real.

"Are you ok?"

I looked up and into his eyes.

It wasn't a spark. It was lightning!
