In Victorian Scotland there lived a maid called Emily. She worked for evil Sir Worthington. Emily longed for adventure and mystery. One miserable, cold, grey day she plucked up the courage and quit. With a smile on her face, she set off on her adventure. Eventually, she arrived in a hot, sandy, distant land. There she met a strange, funny, unusual man who said his name was Imohtep and that he was a pharaoh. Emily was fascinated and asked, 'Have any others been here?'
Imohtep replied, 'You are the first.'
Emily had discovered a new land. 'I'm finally an explorer!'
