A Dream Almost Real Ch. 7Ch. 7
It wasnt a long journey from Egypt to Akumas palace; it took about a day through deserted rounds surrounded by burning houses.
The soldiers and guards tossed their prisonders into the dungeon as instructed. The dungeon was about sixty feet high and thirty feet wide. Torches lit the large room. As soon as Atemu was brought in, he looked around, trying to find a way of escape and devise a plan.
The doors were closed and shut tightly. People began to yell and pound at the walls and doors. It was very cramped in the room.
Over the next several days, no one was given food or drink. Young childrens bodies lay on the cold stone floor. Everyone was sitting; there was a distant sound of a young girl crying. No one paid attention to the noise, they were more worried about satisfying their hunger.
Atemu was sitting in one of the corners of the room, the cloak still covering his face and body.

Atemu kept running, breathing heavily. He stopped when he saw the moldy, wooden door. His hand shook violently from exhaustion as he pulled the creaking door open.
He found himself outside the palace, in the city. People were running everywhere, panicked and screaming. Atemu followed them, pretending to panic as well, blending in as he planned.
Akumas army was after the people, all the soldiers were dead. Their mangled bodies covered the streets.
Atemu turned around, praying he wouldnt see any of the priests dead bodies. He didnt see any. He couldnt wonder on this for long though, Akumas army had circled around them, so they could not run any longer.

He jumped off his horse and dashed into the throne room frantically yelling, Akumas army is coming fast! Hurry! We have to get ready for them!
The Pharaohs army ran and grouped together and galloped out of the palace on their steeds.
Atemus priest turned to him, Pharaoh, it isnt safe here.
Atemu argued, I know, but I can fight!
Priestess Isis said gently, Please Pharaoh, if you are captured, Egypt will fall! As long as youre alive, we still have hope.
Atemu sighed, All right
Mana ran up to Atemu holding a bundle, Prince, put this cloak on, it will hide you from their eyes.
Atemu smiled and took the cloak and put it on. His face was hidden as well as his body.
The priests quickly let the pharaoh into the dungeon and brought him to a long, stone hallway.
Mahado turned, At the end of this hall, there is a door. Go through it and hide.
