THE KINGDOM OF TA-SET THE CITY OF QU-STUL 5681 BC THE TEMPLE OF THE GODDESS EARLY HOUR The room had been emptied of the possessions of the goddess. All that was hers now sealed and prepared for the burial chamber. Her body laid on her bed, wrapped in white linen bindings. The one who mourned her stood in silent contemplation.

Though he had prepared himself for what was to come since the time he had seen her eyes turn away from the festivities of the temple to the darkness of Akert, the suddenness of her departure caused him much grief.
