Anubis watched as the girl bent over her last relative, her mother, as the plague sucked the life from her. The plague had been raging for days. The girl had been strong throuh the deaths of her family members and friends. She had even performed the funeral rites all by hereself. She was a strong young woman. But as her mother fell from her life, she seemed to crumble. She was by herself now. As the girl's sob shook her, he was tempted to reach out and embrace her, but he didn't.
"Why?" she shouted, "Why can't I die too?"
This inspired more tears to fall. And as Anubis began to lead the mother's soul away. The girl did something extraoridinary. She looked right at him, crytal tears falling from her vivid green eyes onto her perfect cheeks, and said,
"Please..." she implored, "take me too."
