In my art class, we’ve been studying Ancient Egypt, and it inspired me to write a story. This is a brand new idea, and it’s about a young temple painter called Seti. I’m really excited about this one guys. I hope you like it. This is a brief outline before you read the introduction to the story:
When he was young, the Pharaoh, Rameses took Seti away from his mother to work in the Palace. At age 13, the Pharaoh realized Seti’s talents as a painter, and appointed him the temple painter inside and outside the palace. Seti’s job is clear: to paint the stories of those who have died onto temple walls for the God of the Underworld, Anubis to find when he claims their souls. Soon after his appointed job, Seti fell in love with the Pharaoh’s daughter, Neferititi. However, Seti knows better then to talk to her; the Pharaoh had forbidden him from ever setting eyes on royalty. After all, his mother was a slave, and Rameses had taken him away from her to spare her life for a crime she committed. Everyday, Seti looks forward to painting the walls in the palace, if can only get a glimpse of Neferititi. She often stares at him, and will often send him secret messages through tying papyrus to her cat’s collar. One day, when Seti was watching for Neferititi, he hears from a guard that the Pharaoh requests his presence in the temples. Seti does as he is asked, and a ceremony is being held for a slave the Pharaoh had killed. When Seti asks what the slave had done, the Pharaoh had told him it was a young girl who impersonated his daughter. Seti is heartbroken as he realizes his one true love is a slave, and has been killed by order of Rameses. Stricken with grief, Seti runs away to the Temple of the Sun God, Ra, to ask for help. When in the temple, he is not faced with the god he seeked, but with the God Anubis, who says he will help Seti get justice for his love. With Anubis’ help, he will become a warrior, and help defeat and cruel and unjust King of Egypt.
Keep in mind; this is a VERY brief description. If something doesn’t make sense, it will later in the story. I assure you my friends, everything will unfold! I'm trying my best to reasearch as I go, Ancient Egypt, so everything is as acurate as possible. But this is fictional after all, so I may bend the rules. If you see something I made a mistake about, and it truely bothers you, please, let me know. I welcome your critique, as always, and let me know what you think of this idea! Thankies so much.
