Professor Lasorenic licked his lips as he yanked open the lid of the sarcophagus. He was an ambitious and selfish man. He and he alone had found the lost treasure of the serpent pharaoh. Who believed in the rubbish about the pharaoh's curse? The lid creaked open and fell back. He peered into its darkness and shone a torch to explore. He hardly looked at the decaying mummy. His eyes fixed on the gold serpent with jewelled eyes that shone. Then the mummy's eyes shone too. Professor Lasorenic froze as the mummy spoke, 'Death is here!' Darkness fell.
