The Last Cycle of Unmaking
Outskirts of Duah-teh District, Herakleion
Accompanied by her personal guard of baboon-soldiers, Hema crested the spur of carved rock with a nimbleness born of experience. Fingers and toes found familiar cracks in the surface and she summited what had once been a glorious tribute to Ptah, the creator god of the ancient Egyptians. The robed statue was about 100 meters high and set against an uneven ridge. Its right arm bent to a large plinth-like staff. The head had been sheared away by the unstable landscape, leaving only a flattened ledge. Hema situated herself in the center of the bone-white slab and stretched to relieve the tension in her shoulders and upper arms. The bunch-backed simians took up defensive positions around the perimeter, scanning for signs of the enemy. They wore reed and bronze armor and bristled with daggers, sickle swords and handaxes.
Heart-shaped flowers the color of rotted meat sprouted from the statue’s cracks and vestigial joints. The captain of the guard, Gapti, offered Hema a short-stemmed blossom with lowered eyes. She breathed in its heady fragrance, tucked it behind an ear and stroked Gapti’s wide, scarred muzzle in thanks. He was taller by a half-meter, twice as broad and covered in a thick ruff of white fur. His dog-like face broke into a shy, dagger-toothed smile meant to be encouraging. Then, suddenly self-conscious, he barked a command for vigilance and assumed the post nearest his charge. He’d lived since infancy for Hema and would see no harm done to her, regardless of the blood-price.
