An urgent call.

"Professor!" A student of mine ran towards me. 

"Yes, what is it?"

"Did you hear?" 

"Did I hear what?"

"They discovered an ancient city in Greece! They say it dates back to Egyptian times. It is all over the news."

After hearing this I rushed back to my room. I gave little noticed to the huge mess in the room consisting of priceless artefacts I was studying and dirty dishes which I forgot about. I switched on my little tv and I saw that there was a huge excavation site in a place which before the forest fires destroyed it this summer grew a beautiful pineforest. 

The city was unmistakably Egyptian but why was it in Greece? Even from this distance I could see the coloured images of the Egyptian hieroglyphics I spend most of my time at university studying

"Who is this?"

"Did you see the news?"

"yes but..who are you?"

"My name is not important. We need your expertice right now in Greece a plane is readied for you at Heathrow. Leave as soon as you can only bring the essentials. Please co-operate it is a matter of urgency. We are from MI5."

The End
