Lucy……Pharaoh’s Sister.

The caravan meandered……like a  slinky or a snake……..making its way across the hot desert sand……..I am enchanted…….it never stops fascinating me…….the desert……its awesome…mesmeric….hypnotic power……….the sheer elemental raw power….has captivated me……..I’m sure as it must have done …………to.all those who had gone before me……………..my soul……..it just yearned eternally……… for the desert.

Soon enough our journey would end……..I just cant wait….to see Lucy…….

We have reached our stop……we await passage through onwards to  Pharaoh’s palace

Lucy she says…….my name is Lucy…….I’;m Pharaoh’s sister…….

I know…I said……my ……

no she said….  you……you do not speak……… who are you?….

My lady…I said….I bring gifts…..and a performance tonight…..of a creationist chant……..to mark the day…..

oh…she said……..i figured you for an athlete………. or a gladiator…….but a creationista?………how boooooori=ng…..yawn…

…I go to my brother now……..i need to supervise ………those lazy wenches around him……………maybe I will see you later when I’m bored….!!!

Creationistas………. entrusted with the arcane primordial language and tongue…..the very first sounds ever echoed n the universe…..on the day our training is complete, we ascend to the edge of the cliff face of the sacred mountain….. …….situated at the origin of the river Adin  (Eden)……it is said ……that because the first words that ever were spoken were here………..the very mountains contain eternal echoes of those words……and on special days when alignments are auspicious…..you could actually hear……..

The children were frolicking ..they had a couple of puppets………….chanting…….…”The devil is your master chanted the leader and the refrain…..…..He can control you”………chanted the rest…”the devil is your master..he can control you!!

Children….I say……thats no way to entertain your puppets!! leave them alone for a while….  and you’re too old to be playing with puppets now now!!

It was Pharaoh’s special day……..I had put some extra thought into the repertoire…….i added 3 levels of tonal expression that were barely noticeable but only discernible to the trained ear..

Kezmet!!    Pharaoh shouted…..Kezmet my friend!!………I see you’ve settled on a profession now…….a creationista!! who would have figured!!…..I had you down as .an athlete…or a gladiator!!! no now Pharaoh my lord …..don’t you go about putting thoughts into Lucy’s head…….

Lucy??……………Lucy died……..4 years ago………she asked of you till her dying breath…….her best friend……..My goodness…I said…what happened?  who knows Pharaoh said…….you are the creationista…….ask your fellows………….I am truly sorry I said…….there s no more need for that now he said…..we must move on………

That evening I had  a knock on my door…….the staccato sound had only one meaning…..two of my fellows had come here tonight……..hello I squealed with delight……a surprise act?….fantastic………what will you perform?…..lakes…..or forests……….woods!! lets do woods!!

Kezmet………he said gravely…kezmet…we were sent here to warn you………Warn me?……what about?? Lucy they said……..we know………know what I asked ?? Lucy died 4 years ago!!! Yes……apparently……..

Look, we have been observing you for  a century….we know of the love……you had for Lucy…Well yes of course……….thats why you sent me to Arabia on a 6 year  mission during which my Lucy…would die!!!!…….why?? i asked what did we do wrong?? we loved each other…….it was pure!!!!!!! ….be still…….whispered the elder of my fellows…..be still…………Your connection with Lucy is eternal……even we are unable to unravel that……..your function on earth was to reconstitute the gordian knot with the coordinates the guild had entrusted you with…..no mean feat…but you did in 5 years…one year early…!!..

Ok I said…that is academic……..I spit on his grave…that barbarian Alexander, he just cut the knot in half…..what an idiot!!……..but Lucy?………..YES they said…….your love for Lucy would have prevented you from reconfiguring the Gordian knot on time……..our fellows who  will come after us now know…they have that blueprint to the chants reconstructed…thanks to you……

Lucy’s voice had a tonal fibre that was designed and constructed  to highest degree……  such quality has never been seen…since the sirens!!!….remember when you met her for the first time?  she was 10 and you were 11……..you  could not be separated for the next 15 years!!!! You could not do anything else apart form please Lucy…YOU were captured by the tonal fibre in her voice…….Please please I said….it hurts…….Lucy my love ……she is gone!!!! 

NO….they both exclaimed……she is still here!!!!

But how..I asked she died…….well okay…..she got translated!!!…….you  are master..a creationista……   you have been to the mount of Adin. WE know she came to you this afternoon……that is the reason for our visit now to you!!……you see in aeons and millenniums………the occurrences of pure thought and pure love are infinitesimally small…..but the power they hold…is awesome…..uncontainable!!……..do the math….the inverse of an infinitesimally small number gives you what?? Eternity..(or infinity)…i responded…..yes we are all taught that in school but no one really believes it!!! NO..my fellows responded………. because that level of understanding is not available to everyone….BUT its TRUE!!

it is Pharaohs birthday……the auspiciousness of time is great……….we cant afford you and Lucy making any creationist chants today……..her tonal capacity and your knowledge of the chants would have made whatever chant you deduced ……unstoppable…..……anyway come along…..the eldest requires an audience of you……

the eldest!!…..I always thought of him as some Gandalf the gray……..Kezmet….he says…remember  your thesis for the guild?………that the final creationist word could not yet be spoken because we had not got the tonality yet?……..yes I said.…well yes!!…you are right!…….there is an element you did not explore fully…..was timing …….when would it next be an auspicious time to even mutter the final word ……and at the right tonality?……. we don’t know.!! therefore we bid that the final word should NEVER be spoken…….

Ok I said…but Lucy? YES…….straight up to you then……you Kezmet….have mapped all the coordinates… and .Lucy ……..Lucy has the tone!! ……..today is Pharaohs birthday……… the auspiciousness……is unprecedented!!!…….you go figure!!!!…….She came  to us!! ……..to ask why we denied you from return all this time………in time to stop her death….. Both of you together ensure that eternity continues……..we will alway keep watch over you…… but in this time we have come too late….why I asked Why? The eldest said……..Lucy decided that we weren’t telling the truth…….she drank up all the hemlock over there…..Forgive us brother, we have let you down…..…..I fainted………….

When I woke up, my two fellows were gone…..Lucy was lying on the ground just outside my tent, she moaned…….Lucy!! I screamed……what have you done!!!……..what happened???……what is this on your lips….is this hemlock????……..Lucy…I cried…….stay with me!!!!……….I know a chant………..it’ll stop this………!!! No no….she said…..its alright……..I’ve met…….i’ve met ……the eldest……….he told me…. its going to be fine……….you and me we will be together for all time………you and I………for all time…I am going to the next life..she said….ill be waiting….

Lucy…no!!…….No I said, Never!!!…….you shouldn’t have asked to see the eldest…t……no one does!!…why…..why didn’t you ask me??……we played the athlete versus creationista game already…you could have asked me!!….the eldest of our fellows?….no one outside the guild  sees him!!………..Lucy……what on earth have you done?? Listen..she said…….its a secret……..but you know it…..the last word……..you must know it……you must!! ………you’re a master……….a creationista …….you must know…….

come closer she whispered…I’m about to go she said………she pressed her lips onto my left ear……..the last word is……..she rasped…the last word  is…”ambi”… she seemed to mumble……”ambigo”…”……….    “armaggo””??

……”ambiggle”……..she said…

Stay Lucy I said…..Lucy stay!!!!!!  I know a chant…….i will stop this…….stay Lucy !!….I commanded……

……but as I began to chant softly to Lucy…Lucy breathed her last breath…….and then she died.
