At last I was in Egypt. I paced through the scorching land of sand. I went through sandstorms and dusty gales as my mind was captivated by its beauty. The story began a year prior to the visit when I, an archeologist, accidentally found some mysterious letter-like scriptures written in Hieroglyph in an Ancient Egyptians artifact. It took me a year to decipher the three page letter. The letter finally brought me to Egypt.

I went to the Valley of the Kings, towards the chamber where the 'Ancient Napoleon' rests for eternity. I combined the scriptures in the letter with some scriptures on the wall of the chamber as instructed in the scriptures I had deciphered.

Suddenly, I felt a tremor. Everything turned bright and the sights of Tuthmosos III life flashed through my mind. I learned the truth of his life and his dark secrets. They were completely unimaginable and different from what I and my fellow archeologists and historians had assumed.

The vision, in reality, proved nothing. I cannot scientifically prove the facts I had seen through my supernatural experience. The truth of Tuthmosos III's life might stay a mystery, since science actually proves nothing but assumptions.
