Deep in the Sahara desert, the ancient pyramids of the Egyptian's ancestors hide. One pyramid has attracted the attention of a British archaeologist. She found another archaeologist to explore the pyramid, in search of some treasure or artifact she found allusions to in some dusty old tome that hadn't been touched in many years. She wanted to have just one other archaeologist as she wanted to keep the expedition fairly secret; who knew what they would discover down there? Today, they meet in person for the first time in a hotel in Cairo, where they will plan out their trip.
Elizabeth took the elevator down from her room. The hotel had a nice lobby that she was to meet her partner in after breakfast. She looked at her watch. 11:45. Early, but she always preferred to be early. She sat at a small table, inconspicuously shoving one of the chairs to another table, leaving only one empty chair at the table. She smiled at her precaution, but she didn't want other company until her partner, a Mr. Hwang, showed up, for more than one reason. From her bag, she pulled out a light novel, which she promptly became engrossed in. In that same bag was several things important to their planning; a map of the area, a copy of the tome she found her information in, and other miscellaneous things. The rest of her belongings were still in her room, and would be until they left—hopefully tomorrow. Again, she thought about having such a small party; maybe she really should have hired one or two other helpers. But she had never discovered anything by herself, and didn't want to share the limelight too much. She checked her watch again. 11:55.
