Chapter 1

"Apophis is close. I can feel it in the pit of my bones, in the way the Nile's waves whisper, in the warm breeze that comes from the South, embracing us with its warmth and comfort, that only show us how dangerously close we are from destruction. I know there must be something we can do, there has to be a way. We can't let this happen" Dr Nefertiti Mubarak shouts. They are all stressed and trust me, none wants to mess with an Egyptian woman when she's mad. Collin and his team learned it on their skin.

"We're doing everything we can, ma'am. What do you expect us to do, go back in time and undo it?" Collin asks pissed off. Geez, she's a handful. But she is a beautiful one. With her pitch black hair, black eyes and olive skin, she can be a Goddess for all they know.

"I think it's time we use plan B Collin. There's no time left to spare" Dr Mubarak says carefully, knowing fully well what she's implying.

"No" Collin immediately answers, not caring for reasons. She won't take her away from him. She can't.

"Collin, I know it hurts but...''

"No, you DON'T! You don't know anything! She is my daughter, you won't take her away from me!"

" I was just being polite, you know she can do as she pleases. She's eighteen now, a legal adult, and her choices don't belong to you anymore'' Dr Mubarak responds as she turns around. This discussion is done, they have nothing left to say to each other.

"How can you do this to your own daughter?" he asks on the verge of tears. "Don't you love her at all?"

"I would be lying if I said that I didn't but remember Collin, we have other children too. We have to take care as well and she fully knows what she's getting herself into. She's not a child anymore" that's all Nefertiti says as she walks out, a lone tear trailing down her cheek before she wiped it out. Now it's not the time to be a coward. The world depends on you.

"Call Miss Carter downstairs please" she tells a maid who quickly bows and leaves.

A few minutes later a girl comes downstairs. She has beautiful dark brown hair that can turn dirty blonde if she stays too much into the powerful razes of the sun. Eyes as dark as the night that seem to look into your soul with their piercing gaze. Normal to big lips that always carry a killer smile that shows her perfectly lined teeth. A tall and slim body that most people envy her for and an IQ bigger than Einstein's itself. I guess there is no surprise why her mother wanted her back after the adoption.

"Yes Dr Mubarak?'' she asks bored.


"I told you lots of times dear, call me Mom or Nefertiti even, there's no need for you to be so formal" Nefertiti tells her with the falsest smile she could muster, but Cleo could see right through it. She wanted something. Typical.

"Cut the crap Dr Mubarak and tell me what the fuck is going on?" Cleo asks fed up with her shit.

"Language missy! Anyway, as I was saying before, it's time for you to act your part" Bitch, ugh I mean Dr Mubarak, told me. Great. What am I supposed to do now? Go to the store and get some bread for her?

"What now?''

"I need someone to travel to the Ancient Egypt to fight Apophis and his evil. And you, my dear, are just the right person for that" she tells me. Great, I am living with a lunatic. Another thing to cut off my bucket list.
