Is Lanaia the reincarnation of Edgar Allan Pole? Pay her a visit,
read her work and you decide. I also wrote a story for you. When
you visit, take time to sign my guestbook, so I know you were there.
I wrote a new story just for you
I am an Egyptian, direct descendant of Imhotep, one of Egypt's
greatest men. Egyptology has always fascinated me. Imhotep, I
consider to be the ancestor of the ages, I have to go to Egypt, to
try and trace my roots. Imhotep, his resting place was never found.
So, I am drawn to Egypt. there I will give it a shot, because if
found, all the riches are rightfully mine, since I am a direct
A friend of the family, Dr. Micah Emery, one of today's best
known Egyptologist, was very close to finding the tomb.
Unfortunately, a premature death, kept Emery from finishing his work.
Imhotep, was a doctor, architect, philosopher, magician, and
politician to ancient Egypt. So, finding his tomb, would be the find
of the millennia. I have access to Dr. Emery's papers, so I will try
to take up where he left off. I am not doing this for just the
money, I need to feel like I belong to something, so really this is
the major reason for my search.
My ancestor, Imhotep, acquired some magnificent titles from
the Pharaoh, Chancellor to the King of Lower Egypt, Hereditary
Prince, Greatest of Seers, and Ruler of the Great Estates, these are
but just a few. So, see his genius was far more advanced than anyone
else at this time in Pharaoh's royal court. Imhotep's tomb never
being found, when it is found I wonder what secrets it will hold?
His achievements in medicine, earned him the title God of
Medicine. Imhotep's name appears through out Egypt, but his resting
place remains a secret. Everyone seems to think Imhotep's tomb is
within a few hundred yards of the Step Pyramid, he designed this for
I do know Dr. Emery, found a third dynasty tomb, more
signifacantly he found a series of long underground galleries, packed
with mummified ibises, the sacred bird of Imhotep. There were more
than a millions of these birds found, all packed in earthen ware jars
and this became known as the Tomb of the Birds. Dr. Emery also found,
a series of passage ways, containing hundreds of mummified baboons,
ancient Egypt's symbol of knowledge and wisdom. Shortly after this,
he found a small piece of stone in a wooden box. It was barely eight
inches long, but inscribed on it, in ancient Egyptian demonic text,
was the electrifying words, Imhotep the Great, The Son of Plat,
Greatest God and other Gods who live here. Dr. Emery was convinced he
was on the right track.
I board an Egyptian airline and I am on my way. I arrive in
Cairo, but I must go to Saccara, twenty miles from Cairo. So I hire a
guide and I am on my way to the Step Pyramid.
When we arrive, it is a lot hotter than I thought it would
be. Under the desert sun that is so bright, I think to myself, this
same sun saw ancient Egyptians as they worked and played. This
thought just makes me more eager to find the tomb. I look up at the
Step Pyramid, and I gasp at the amazing build. Very impressive to
have been built by ancient Egyptians
I am walking around the pyramid, and I take a wrong step,
plummeting me into a sea of darkness. The air smells very stagnate, I
rummage around in my pockets, looking for a lighter, so I can see
where I am. I find my lighter, flick my bic, and what I see, man
hasn't seen in many years. I think to myself, how privileged I am, to
be the first pair of eyes to see these ancient things in many many
I see statues made of gold, baskets, and urns, I would guess to
be filled with wine. But, the greatest thing I see is a sacarfagus. I
can read hieroglyphs to an extent, enough to get by.
Then on the sacarfagus, I see a cartouche. Within the cartouche, I
make out the name, Imhotep.
So, Dr. Emery was right, if only he had lived long enough to
witness this great find. He spent forty-five years chasing this
dream, his life's work.
Everything I see is totally breath taking. My guide finally
finds me and pulls me from the hidden tomb. I must hurriedly contact
the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, but before I do this, I must hide
the entrance to the tomb. So, many years this tomb remained hidden
from mankind. Everything totally in tact., never being disturbed.
Imhotep, he achieved immortality. Eternal life he has gained. As long
as he is remembered, he will never die.
Be sure to keep a look out for Lanaia's first novel called Of
Atlantis, the first book of a five book fantasy series, due for
release this fall. Make sure to watch for it!
