"So hot." Nathifa whispered and she regained consciousness.
She struggled to move but her muscles screamed in agony. It was like she was being slowly ripped apart.
"Where am I?" She opened her dark lovely eyes which captured so many heart with a glance.
All around was fired and molten rock. Was this Hell? She hung by heavy chains locked around her wrists. Looking down she saw another chain around her ankles and licked to a boulder the size of a small mountain. How had she ended up here? The last she remembered she was in bed. This was clearly the doing of one of the vengeful gods. She tested the chains. She could break the ones holding her arms but the river of fire would devour her when she dropped. The chain around her ankle was another matter, she could not budge it.
"Alright, show yourself!" She demanded.
"You dare command a goddess?" Flames roared up and transformed.
"Sekhmet." Nathifa said when she saw the powerful lion headed goddess.
"Your champion drove off my avatar, did you think that would be the end of it?" Sekhmet purred.
"So you plan to take more than one turn trying to kill me. Ra is going to be angry that you are breaking his word." The powerful Princess taunted.
"Not at all, Daughter of the God-King. I am not going to kill you. This is your eternal prison." The Goddess laughed. "And when your little champion comes, as we know she will. I will kill and devour her right in front of you."
"You leave Red alone! This is between me and you Gods!" Nathifa roared.
But Sekhmet just laughed and disappeared leaving Nathifa to roast in the heat.
