Pharaoh wound up declared crazy for seeing a masked male everywhere. No one sees that masked male thinks ruler is crazy. Ruler gets too much of seeing that masked male stabs himself with a knife into his chest and lays on floor alone in throne room. Masked male turns out to be his own brother who wants the throne to himself reveals the masked status to pharaoh and forces the eyes of his brother shut then orders him to be buried into an underground temple. Anubis realizes that the Pharaoh is still alive but not really dead gets him out of the grave into the priests' temple. Priests aren't doing much regarding this situation instead plot with Anubis and Pharaoh to remove his brother from the throne. Brother has religious beliefs involving some other gods and goddesses priests don't approve or appreciate of and want him removed.

Ruler gets handed a mask by Anubis and told “You’re to haunt your brother with it.”

He obeys learning how to do that haunting making his brother seem crazy to the city's people and own servants. Servants don't know that Pharaoh is still alive doing that haunting and same with the city's people who ignore beggars and don't know that a beggar is a masked pharaoh haunting his brother to drive him crazy. Priests get the upper hand on the brother's craziness and get him out of the rulership's position into a grave to be buried alive.

Anubis tells Pharaoh “Just go to the chasm of storms and leave Humania since you’ve been declared disappeared to the people of Zimala.”

Pharaoh spoke “I don't agree-“

A priest spoke interrupting “I insist on you in doing that disappearance status! Don’t worry your son Eric is taking your brother's place as ruler! I’ll see it happens period!”

Pharaoh goes into chasm of storms arrive to planetary world of Earth becomes Alexei Zesky as known back then that later fathers a son named Eric dubbed on Terra, Eric Kossman Zesky. Pharaoh's twin brother buried alive in Humania gets freed from Anubis taking pity on him and gets tossed into the chasm of storms while still covered in wrapping stuff. Brother arrives to a planetary world, Shadan, and becomes Nikolas Visser, then gets transported off via the High Council doing it, to Terra to live among the natives of Terrania. It’s from what I’ve read involving him via books on his life which I don’t have the memories of them actually.  What I remember involving myself was meeting The Guardian of Life and Death judging the soul, myself naked while standing in front of him. He during the judgment wound up to eyed the mental gated arch to see if flash an image of a male wearing gonoid skin clothing from head to foot.

From what I heard "You had to show Eric didn't you?!"

I heard nothing in response to Egypt, the Goddess of Life in a Human bald eagle form fluttering her wings off the side of Guardian of Life and Death. She had asked that question instead the Guardian ignored her and kept on watching, as I watched.

Eric, the male walked on the desert sands his feet wearing gonoid skin boots with robes covering him from head to foot. He paused from his walk to exhale a breath staring at the desert sands while feeling the wind blowing softly. He saw a rocky wall ahead of him which he continued walking towards it. He frowned as he felt a burning sensation on the bottoms of his feet looked down to stare at the ground. He felt a hotness feeling which made him yank off his robes baring his form showing him wearing pants with no top revealing his muscular physique. Groaning he tossed aside the robes as the feeling began to dominate him as he walked. He felt his feet burning and looked down with dizzy eyes to see smoke of fire on the ground where his feet were which he followed with his eyes. He stiffened as he saw the fire surrounded him and screamed out a nonsense sound which he ran towards the rocky wall running while feeling the burning going to his legs. He forced himself to keep running till he reached the rocky wall and paused when he spotted a doorway opening in it. He ran in the doorway opening running into a corridor with stone walls which he ran not caring where he went till his lungs started bursting and he collapsed onto his knees on the dirt floor. He shut his eyes panting for breath and discovered the burning and hotness sensations gone from him which he opened his eyes as he continued to pant. He looked up with night vision to see a large sarcophagus coffin in front of him next to the wall of a large room that was high overhead. He exhaled a breath getting up from the dirt floor to stare at the sarcophagus which he saw had a sword spear on top of it, he recognized as a weapon called Mikan. He sighed and walked towards the sarcophagus leaning over with clawed hands on the Mikan which he with great strength yanked off.

He stood holding the Mikan in his hands as he spoke out loud “This place is my home. I won’t leave it and suffer your fate, Father. I refused to let what happened to you happen to me.”

He exhaled a breath then felt tiredness arriving went to a wall and sat in a leaning position closing his eyes. He felt himself sliding into a lying position laid onto the ground falling asleep.

Eric woke up with a gasp. He got up and looked around the room which he saw a doorway opposite from the sarcophagus which he entered to see a corridor with open doorways on both sides which he counted each having five of them. He went into doorways to discover that that they were empty small rooms. He found rats scattering in all directions in one room which he feeling hungry captured a rat gagging it to death. He brought the rat to his mouth biting into it eating as he entered another room which he saw had water dripping from the ceiling landing into a small stone pool of water on the floor. He finished with the rat threw the carcass away and went to the pool kneeling. Eric brought his hand into the pool scooping up water bringing it to his lips repeatedly.

He felt himself better spoke out loud “I’ll stay here with the rats as my food and this water pool as my drink.”

He got up and walked back to the sarcophagus room where he went to the corner of the room and laid his form on the dirt ground falling asleep.

Eric jerked himself awake when he heard a sound. He opened his eyes as his eyes sight blinked from night vision to day vision while hearing the sound become louder. He sat up to stare at the doorway was a flickering light that was coming nearer and nearer while hearing sounds he recognized as people jabbering. He got up holding the Mikan in front of him to stare at the open doorway which revealed a flaming torch light held in a figure wearing raggedy robes in hand followed by four other figures wearing identical clothing all with turban like headdresses on their heads. He stood watching as the figures spoke words he understood overlapping jabbering all at once. He edged himself closer towards the figures that darted towards the sarcophagus one leaving the torch lying on the floor as they picked at the coffin with knives in their hands. Eric roared some loud nonsense sound which got the figures to stop their picking as he charged at them swinging his Mikan. He heard exclamations of shock from the figures as he used the flat end of the Mikan’s sword part hitting each of them on their heads knocking them out. He stood staring at the figures that lay on the floor unconscious with the torch’s light flickering. Exhaling a breath he picked up a figure by the neck dragging the person out of the room into the corridor passing by doorways towards the entrance where he could see was night time. He with great strength tossed the figure into the air that landed away from him onto the sand. He went inside and repeated the process with the other figures including tossing out the torch light then went to the rats’ room where he could see rats running around in all directions. With quick hand movements he grabbed a rat by the tail and tossed it in the air catching it with his hand around its neck which he squeezed choking it. He smiled a smile of satisfaction as the rat died giving up to death going limp in his hand. He walked out of the room biting into the rat’s body going out the corridor towards the entrance to outside and stood chewing as he listened. Eric heard voices yelling exclamations words understood with overlapping as he listened. He heard horses whinnying sounds as he stood which became fainter and fainter. He once finished with the rat tossed the carcass away went to the pool room going inside to kneel at the pool bringing his hand in it scooping up water which he drank repeatedly.

He spoke once he finished drinking “I’ll stay here and keep people out for it’s my home my place and my sanctuary. No one will enter this place not if I have to kill them just to get rid of the people entering here.”

He sighed and got up leaving the room to the corridor which he walked entering the large room to stand staring at the sarcophagus which he walked to putting a hand on top of it.

He spoke again “I’ll guard you to keep others from interfering with your rest. You have my word on this, for I’m not leaving ever. Nothing will bring me out of this sanctuary except death.”

He gave the sarcophagus a rub and removed his hand to go to a corner lying on the ground closing his eyes as he let sleep over come him. Eric dreamed of walking in the desert wearing robes that covered his head showing his eyes peering out. He was following a figure wearing identical robes covering the head which he automatically knew was his Father. His Father stopped and removed the robe from his head showing black hair which he stood next to him removing his robe from his head to stare at him. His Father looked at him before a look of terror arrived on his face which he screamed before looking down. Eric looked down to see fire licking at his Father’s robes surrounding him. He darted towards his Father who hit him with a fist in the face throwing him backwards hitting the ground. He lay on the ground staring at his Father with horror on his face as the fire abruptly rose surrounding the male.

He screamed out “Father!”

The fire he saw engulfed his father who gave out a crying wail and then the flames went shooting into the sky leaving a black round soot mark on the ground in place of the male.

Eric woke up screaming of terror shaking his form which took him moments to understand where he was. Groaning he rubbed a hand on his head and stood up as his eyes sight flashed from night vision to day vision. He looked at the corridor doorway to see fire light becoming brighter and brighter which he gripped the Mikan in his hands while softly growling. He stared at the light source revealing a figure with a male form holding a torch which he saw had shoulder length sun colored hair while wearing robes that looked neat who came into the room.

He snarled softly as the figure turned to his direction speaking words he understood “Who is there? Show yourself now.”

Eric slowly walked forward his eyes on the male’s eyes that widened seeing him.

He stared at the stranger who spoke again “Why are you living here surrounded by darkness instead of being in the light?”

Eric in response swung the wide end of the Mikan at the stranger hitting him on the knees knocking him to kneel. He angrily grabbed the stranger’s long hair yanking him in a standing position thrusting the sword part of the Mikan at the stranger’s neck.

He spoke “I won’t tolerate visitors here who will be removed by my force even killed if they resist.”

He yanked the stranger into the hallway towards the entrance where he could see sun light shining outside. He brought the stranger to the entrance and thrust his back to the wall.

Eric spoke “Tell the others to stay out. This is my sanctuary, no one enters.”

He turned his back and sensed the torch light behind him shining which he continued walking through the corridor entering the sarcophagus room which he kneeled as his dream of his father burned flashed in his mind’s eye. Groaning he rubbed a hand on his forehead and once again his eyes sight flickered. Growling he got up and turned towards the room’s entrance to see a male with short dark colored hair wearing identical robes as the stranger enter the room with a torch in hand.

He charged at the stranger who spoke “Eric, I’m called Trevor.”

Eric paused mid charge hearing his name spoken by the stranger Trevor. The image of his father catching on fire came to his mind and he continued his charge swinging the Mikan at Trevor who put the torch in front of his face and as he swung, fire from the torch came blowing at him towards his eyes. Eric dropped the Mikan bending down placing hands over his eyes while hearing running footsteps getting fainter and fainter. He removed his hands to blink his eyes which he felt were fine and straightened up his form. He exhaled a breath and looked down on the ground for his Mikan he saw wasn’t there.

Frowning he looked around eyes staring at the ground then he growled out loud “That stranger, Trevor, stole my weapon.”

He roared an angry sound then jogged out of the room to the corridor to the entrance which he walked out into the sun light to see Trevor holding his Mikan in his hands standing next to the stranger he kicked out holding a torch and behind them were a crowd of people who abruptly went silent seeing him. He darted up to Trevor and yanked the Mikan out of his grip then turned his back to the crowd pausing when he heard gasping sounds from behind him. Shaking his head he walked back into the tomb entering the hallway again which he again reached the sarcophagus room. His eyes sight blinked again which he spun around to see Trevor walking speedily into the room which he edged himself towards the wall eyes on him. He saw Trevor go up to the coffin and kneel form becoming still.

Shaking his head of disgust he turned away towards the doorway when he heard his father’s voice speaking “Eric.”

He turned around to stare at Trevor and widen his eyes when he saw his father standing at Trevor’s side wearing a skirt with chest bare of clothing with shiny jewelry on it and a crown on his head staring at him with all dark colored eyes. Eric shook his head closing his eyes. He opened them to find his father gone from standing besides Trevor.

He thought to himself “It was just part of my imagination.”

He turned and froze for inches away staring at him was his father who spoke “You my son are Pharaoh, leader of the people who are counting on you to lead which is what you should be doing. I did not raise you to have yourself isolated surrounded in the darkness living alone.”

Eric gaped at his father with shock on his face as his father continued speaking “You should face your fear the real reason why your isolated yourself in this place.”

He closed his mouth as his father paused then continued speaking “Why did you go out in the sun to get your weapon if you are afraid of the light? Speak your fears don’t keep them to yourself my son.”

He stared at his father who faded from his eyes sight as he turned to face Trevor who he heard was chanting words he heard repeatedly said “Go into the light, don’t be afraid.”

He went to Trevor kneeling in front of the man who stopped chanting to stare at him.

Eric spoke “I have a either a memory or a dream in my mind. I see my father wearing robes covered up walking in the desert with me besides him wearing robes. I was following him who stopped from walking to remove the hood from his head as I did the same with both of us looking at each other. My father looked at me with a look of fear on his face which he screamed of terror and looked down. I looked to see eater licking at his robes surrounding him. I darted towards him to help which he punched me hard throwing me backwards hitting the ground. I could only lie on the ground staring with terror as the eater engulfed my father. I screamed out ‘father!’ as the eater covered him. I heard him give out a crying wail sound then the eater shot up towards the sky leaving a black round soot mark on the ground in his place. I kept walking in the desert till I got a burning sensation on the bottoms of my feet that I felt a hotness feeling that made me yank off my robes. The feeling took over as my feet continued to feel like burning and looked down with bad eyesight to see eater surrounding me which I screamed and ran to here. The burning came up to my legs as I entered this place entering this room falling to a kneeling position and felt the eater had left me.”

He paused as Trevor nodded his head and he continued “I became afraid that the eater would consume me like it did with my father if I was out there so I stayed living here as my sanctuary from it.”

He stared at Trevor who wordlessly handed him a large cloth canteen while speaking “Here, Eric drink.”

Eric took the canteen and brought the open cap part to his lips which he drank recognizing it as milk and he greedily drank till there wasn’t a drop left for him. He handed Trevor the canteen who slung it over his arm as he grimaced as a headache arrived to his head.

Eric himself younger sitting next to an eater with gonoid skins feet aimed at it while staring at a man who had robes covering him across from it. The man pulled off his robes off his head showing a male’s face with a headband of metal on his head his mind told him was his father’s second in command guard named Amony who stared at him with a frown. Eric laid down staring at the sky while feeling his feet warm. He felt a burning sensation in his feet and looked up as Amony darted around the eater with panic in his eyes. He felt the burning sensation reach his legs as Amony grabbed him pulling him away from the eater before tossing a bolt of cloth covering his legs and feet swatting it at him. He felt the burning sensation leave him followed by hotness feeling which he groaned loudly pulling at his long sleeve shirt yanking it off his form.

He felt Amony’s hand on his forehead and heard him speak “By the Gods, burning up.”

Eric laid on the ground feeling himself really hot groaning loudly as he felt a cool cloth cover his forehead which he shut his eyes as he was forced into a sitting position and felt something brought to his lips which he drank recognizing it as milk. He felt the coolness of milk and greedily drank as sleepiness arrived which he stopped drinking becoming still. He felt an arm around his form and felt his head lay on a lap with a cloth still on his forehead as he slept.

An adult Eric kneeling who he saw jerked his eyes to stare at Trevor who spoke “You as younger were burned on the feet and legs from an eater catching on your clothes which gave you the heat sickness. You suffered said to see an image of your father being burned by the eater repeatedly over and over during your sicknesses.”

He saw Eric stiffened at the words as Trevor paused then continued speaking “After your father’s death you were seen going into the desert unstopped wearing what you described walking the perimeter of the city walls outside while crying out ‘Father’ repeatedly.”

He frowned at Trevor’s words who kept speaking “The hotness feeling you had that led you to here was the heat of the desert and the coolness of the tomb helped you feel better.”

He felt better along with hearing his father’s voice "Go with Trevor leaving the place my son."

He got up as Trevor got up and he ran to a corner of the room with hand over his mouth while hearing Trevor gasp loudly. Eric threw up the contents of his stomach several times along with choking like feeling which he felt something in his mouth. He coughed out to see is a small crystal jewel with a cloth necklace which he recognized as his father’s.

Eric put on necklace and went back to Trevor who spoke “Moves like a God for only a God can lead us.”

Guardian frowned finding Eric not acknowledging the words as Trevor handed him the Mikan. He followed Trevor out of the tomb to outside facing the crowd of people who get on their knees as if worshipping him as their God and leader.

Eric became Pharaoh as the leader's title and given clothes and is paraded through the city in a chair held by male slaves with his guards flanking him. The procession stopped at a triangle like stone building Guardian figured is a temple where there are others assumed to be priests there along with a chair in front of the doors. He got off chair by slaves lowering it to the ground and walked up the steps to the chair where he is told by high priest wearing mask of a gonoid God Anubis.


Anubis waved hands over him while chanting in foreign language words not understood. He saw Eric appeared to be staring onto the floor as Anubis is handed hanging a hanging lantern which he waved over him still chanting away. He watched as Anubis hands off lantern then placed hands on Eric's head closing his eyes with his hands.

Anubis spoke "You shall be known as your name, Eric ruler of the kingdom Egyptia."

Anubis’ hands picked at Eric's eyes which he opened and sees the priest take a crown off the masked head and place it on his head which he rolled his eyes while making out a small gasp as he felt a tiny jolt of pleasure. Then he stood up and went to the chair to sit which crowd got onto their knees foreheads to the ground with arms in front of them.

He spoke loudly "I am Pharaoh Eric ruler of Kingdom Egyptia. I will rule the people well."

Eric appeared to be assisted by a priest called Omar who gave him advice on ruling. He found some of the advice is demanding insisting he do this and that while ruling as Pharaoh. He saw Eric appeared to be in love with a female slave with long sun colored hair named Sabba. Eric declared Sabba as his queen despite his priest’s objections. He and Sabba eat food before they went to bed asleep after that with her next to him. Eric appeared to passed out and he waked up in the morning to discover Sabba dead with claw marks on her and her neck is broken. He saw Eric act like he killed her got upset.

The priest Omar arriving into the room appearing to be aware of Sabba's death spoke "It’s a bad omen to mate with slaves for your gonoid side came out and said no to slaves hence the killing."

Eric appeared to mourn Sabba's death wound up sitting on his bed staring at the ceiling lengthy as night and day go by. He appeared to not acknowledge anything all around him or the food brought to his lips. He kept on lying there till a female slave arrived into the room carrying a tray of food. He watched as Eric saw the female a slave and shakes his staring at the ceiling mood. He found Eric appeared to be in love with her and wanted to mate with her.

The female acted rude to Eric speak "I don’t want anything to do with you!"

Eric didn't back down instead corner the female in the room after getting up from the bed. He found her thrusting a knife at his neck when he cornered her to kiss her. Omar arrived into the room to get the female slave away from him to his annoyance.

Omar wound up speaking "You're not to mate with Niya the slave for it’s not what the Pharaoh is supposed to be doing."

Eric responded by going to Omar and thrusting a clawed hand onto the male's face to snarl "You will allow me to mate with Niya I want brought to my bedroom now! I as your Pharaoh orders it!"

Omar darting away in sight followed by Niya entering the room with her arms folded.

Eric spoke "Get in bed now, Niya."

He found his order obeyed but she thrust a knife at his neck when he attempted to lie on top of her.

He spoke "I wanted you as mine when I first saw you-"

Niya interrupted speaking "You killed a slave female and I refused to suffer her fate."

Eric spoke "Niya, just kill me for I still want to mate with you if you're afraid of me."

He closed his eyes and waited as the knife presses harder into the side of his neck. He kept his face blank as he sensed the knife off his throat and Niya kissing him on the lips hands on his cheeks.

They mate which Eric appeared to be is her first.

Then after the mating is done he heard Eric speak to her in whispered tones "I have a gonoid side which is poisonous lips, clawed hands giving up poison and great strength."

She responded "I'm being fine with this."

Eric fell asleep and waked up sensing Niya in trouble to see Omar with guards in the room holding her with priest having a knife at her throat.

Omar is heard while Eric is quietly getting up behind priest’s back with guards not giving him away "Eric mating with a slave girl will ruin my plans to control him in his rule over the kingdom. I will have to kill Niya like I killed this slave girl dubbed Sabba by snapping her neck and getting Eric’s venomous claws on her body while he was passed out by a sleep drug in his food and drink."

Eric appeared to get mad roared loudly surprising Omar who turned around dropping Niya from his knife hold. Omar is attacked by Eric who used his claws on the priest's face who appeared to die from the venom in the scratches. Guards take priest’s body away as Eric calmed down and allow Niya to hold him which he leaned his face on her head relaxing some more from her arms on him. He let Niya bring him to the bed and then they mate again.

Eric is heard speaking "I'm declaring my love to you along with hoping to have you as my equal my queen."

Eric gets new priests who are brothers Kurpanov and Trevor who recognized as the ones who helped the male from the tomb.

A visitor a low ranking official speaking "I am asking you about having a Queen and choosing her among the population."

Eric saw Niya put tray with drinks on ottoman next to his throne chair which he got up as she knelt with head down.

He spoke "I have already chosen a female as my queen."

Eric went to Niya pulling her up who won’t look at him.

He kissed her on the lips and speaks "I have chosen Niya as my queen."

Eric spoke his words while hearing the low ranking official sputter protests.

Niya was stiff to the touch which Eric whispered in her ear "I'm begging you to be my queen and my equal."

He ignored low ranking official took her to his bedroom to resume kissing her on the lips while feeling her really stiff.

He pleaded with a begging tone "I want you as my queen to accept as mine."

Niya he heard haltingly agreed in a broken voice eyes still not looking at him. He held her and brought her to the bed and mated with her. Once done night arrived fell asleep. He waked up in the sun light to discover her gone and goes out of bedroom in the buff roaring for her while feeling angry.

Kurpanov his priest is there with his guards as he roars "I want Niya now! You'll have to go out searching for her!"

His guards point out his nudity with their eyes and heads staring at him which he saw and realized that he’s not wearing clothes. He went back into bedroom put on clothes as Kurpanov followed him. He was forced by Kurpanov to eat and drink food set at a table in the room which he takes and then once getting up fell to the floor unconscious.

He waked up to discover it’s night time and he was in his bed while hearing crying sounds. He saw Niya standing in front of his window crying.

Eric went to Niya rubbing her back speaking "You're not leaving me again for you're as mine as my queen."

He heard Niya speak "My father abused my mother after speaking twin words you spoke to her using the word Priestess instead of queen. My father in one of his angry rages killed my mother in front of me who I as a child ran away. I was found by the Pharaoh who had two slaves raise me and had me become a slave once I was old enough."

He stiffened hearing the words as Niya adds "My father was Omar the priest who didn’t recognize me when he tried to have me killed. I'm afraid of suffering my mother’s fate hence myself trying to run away. A Priest named Trevor caught me and talked sense to me into revealing the truth to you."

Eric lowered his hands went to chair and sat staring at her as she resumed crying while continuing to stand in front of his window. He continued to stare at Niya who kneel curling into a ball while still crying away. He got up walking towards Niya to pick her up carrying her to the bed which he placed her on and pulled the blanket on her form. He got into bed wrapping his arms around her as she fell asleep which he lied awake for a bit.

Eric wound up hearing his father’s voice "Eric get some sleep for you’ll need it."

He closed his eyes and fell asleep as if obeying the order.

Eric is in throne room sparring with a guard using Mikans.

His guard gets his Mikan out of his hands then halts to speak "Pharaoh see about picking up your weapon to resume the fight."

Eric appearing to not realizing it uses blurry speed to go to the Mikan picking it up.

He heard guards around him gasp out “God.”

The word didn’t register to Eric from the behavior which the male easily dismissed but sensed confused.

Messenger boy arrives in room speaking "Guards have requested Pharaoh Eric to the fighting room."

Eric agreed to go walks with guards escorting him to the room a large outdoor courtyard. He was surrounded by guards in a circle which one challenged him to a fight by Mikan which he accepted. He fights with the guard who got the Mikan out of his hands as he sensed from behind him an arrow flying towards him. He twisted to his right grabbing arrow with his right hand and with left arm blocks the wide end of the guard’s Mikan. He heard a voice speak loudly halting the spar which he recognizes as the official who visited him before which he sees standing with the guards. He saw another guard who have Niya with him knife at her throat and her hands are tied in front of her with ropes. Eric stared at Niya as guard with Mikan knocked him to a kneeling position then has blade part of Mikan at his throat.

He heard official speak "Eric killed a slave girl when she displeased him and is pleasuring himself on another slave girl."

Official paused as guards around Eric become silent which the official continued again "Eric was raised to be spoiled doing things his way without caring about others even hurting them if he is not happy with them."

Eric remembered Trevor’s mysterious God line spoken when he was in the sarcophagus room and guards in throne room speaking the word “God” while gasping which it dawns on him the male have a fast speed ability to move. Eric looking away with a look in his eyes as the official continued to rant bad things about him. Eric heard guards grumble loudly as guard with Mikan swings weapon aiming at his throat which he used blurry fast speed to get up on his feet and move till he is behind the guard. Guard turned around looking for him seeing he charged with Mikan again swinging which Eric used his ability to move behind guard who’s Mikan meets air every time it swings at him. He sensed the guards surrounding him are silent as the officials are gasping loudly. This process lasts repeatedly several times till the guard with Mikan tossed it onto the ground then knelt with head bowed. Eric eyed Niya which he saw guard besides her cut ropes binding her with knife freeing her and then gently pushes her forward then knelt as the official and guards kneel. He kept his eyes on Niya whose eyes are staring at the ground as she hesitantly walked with halting steps towards him. He placed hands on her cheeks kissing her on the lips while feeling Niya kiss him back. He placed his arms around her in a hug then looked around at the kneeling people.

Eric spoke "I have chosen Niya as my Queen. I expect my people to accept this."

He heard "We accept."

It's spoken in unison from the guards and official who are kneeling on the floor.

Niya admitted to Eric in private of their bedroom "I'm pregnant."

Eric appeared to have accepted this news. Eric, he watched during Niya’s pregnancy acted fascinated with the baby moving from inside her from having hands on her abdomen while feeling the movements. Niya once her abdomen is so swollen went into labor has a baby which is a boy with Human blue eyes and Human like hands and appearing to have inherited Eric's hair.

The baby turned into a full grown adult male facing the Guardian of Life and Death who spoke "I will judge you on my scales with your life."

Egypt was heard screaming "Life!"

The Guardian without another word held up a hand and a silver ball came out of the male to land into his hand. He put the ball onto the scale and it tipped back and forth ignored by Egypt. The scale tipped heavily onto one side indicating something which the Guardian put the ball back into the male.

The Guardian spoke as Egypt shrieked of joy "Life is what is chosen for you. Be gone now."

The Guardian held up his hands into a blow movement over his lips and blew as the young male facing him got his form rising in the air rising out of the planet Humania towards multiple planets including passing by sun stars till a planet came into view and went into it to focused as if drawn onto a male lying on a stone table with thunder and lightening flashing above while wearing clothe wrappings covering his form entirely from head to foot that nothing was seen of his body only a male form and entered him like a possession then passed out unconscious.
