A shout from behind makes me turn. Tut is running

after me, but it is not his voice that ignites the terror in my heart. It is mine screaming

to hold on to life.


“No. No. NO!”

The force of the explosion flings me through the air like a rag doll. By the time I pick my head up a dense cloud of dust engulfs

me. Too late I cover my face.


I’m choking,

can’t breathe, can’t see! I’m dying!

Arms encircle

my chest pulling

me backwards. My legs scrape

painfully across the debris- covered granite floor.

Another pair of arms lifts my legs.

Floating. That’s what it’s like. Dying is like floating

on air.


My body touches solid

ground. Voices, whispers

really, penetrate my clogged brain.

I hope this is heaven.


Without warning,

I start coughing and gagging. My brain screams

at me. “Fight! Breathe!”
