The scorpions, having delivered Nicholas Hoare to the statue, watch his unmasking..
'Keep walking into my mouth scorpions; anything's better than the taste of this filth! Urgh!'
Later that night, Ahmed Apu is washing his mucky hands in the valley's clear pool.
'I can never seem to get them clean,' he murmurs to himself.
He gives up, and wanders away.
He is somewhat preoccupied ...
... and doesn't notice the danger.
Ahmed is sent sprawling, hands and head first ...
... straight into the burgeoning pile of camel dung, where he lies unconscious.
Meanwhile, Mellifluous Murgatroyd is busy composing the headline news of her career...
'This story has everything!' she says to herself. 'Murder, intrigue, romance, mythology, beings from a fictional universe...'
She gets stuck on a word, and turns to a dark, dark figure for help.
'How do you spell "definitely"?' she asks the dark, dark figure.
'Like this: D - E - F - I - A - N - T - L - Y.' says the ever-helpful, dark, dark figure, sniggering.
Mellifluous is sceptical. 'Are you sure?' she asks.
'Oh yes. Definitely,' replies the figure, defiantly.
'Oh well,' sighs Mellifluous, 'it'll have to do.'
'Whatever,' says the figure, darkly, as it lunges with its drawn syringe.
The figure glances at Mellifluous's copy.
'What a load of trash,' it mutters, as it throws the article onto the fire.
The figure drags Melllifluous's unconscious body to the statue.
It notices the body of Ahmed Apu lying in the camel dung.
'Waste not, want not,' it thinks ...
... as it drags both to IMHOTEP's open mouth.
Ahmed's clothes fall from the chute ...
'Booooring!' booms the statue.
Then comes Mellifluous's attire:
'That's more like it! Delicious!'
The following morning, Ossie and Is have created a little ice rink from the splashes from their watery exploits of yesterday.
'That pile of clothes is rather getting in the way,' notes Ossie.
'I hope they clear up after themselves when they leave.'
The remaining campies are quiet, intent upon the task in front of them.
There's the sleazy Gordon Bennett, the dashing and debonair William Fitzpatrick, and the steely, determined Sheila Suxsumb...
... the inscrutable Aloysius, sporting his latest headgear; the supercilious Toulouse LePlot...
... and Ishaq Ettaq: shy and reserved, it appears, in stark contrast to his character description.
By the fire stand the indomitable Roger Goodenarde, and his incomprehensible lieutenant Hugh Janus...
... while between them the sassy Jenny Taylor and the efficient Johnson Cox guard Schnookums the bear from any further verbal threats .
As one, they turn and look upwards...
... to the towering statue that governs their fate.
