Roggan want to run, want to run more than when Roggan not want to go into the room behind the bad door.
‘Sc .. scary lady want what with Roggan?’
‘I have been watching you, and have seen that Apis was correct in choosing you. CrIsis is in
need of you.’
‘Scary lady like Roggan?’ Roggan ask. Roggan not believe that Scary Lady talk to Roggan in this way.
‘I can be very scary, this is true. But I respect Roggan.’
Scary Lady say she respect Roggan! Respect not the same as Love. ‘Scary Lady like Overky?’
‘The Dwarf needs to remember that running in to battle, and running away from battle are not the only thigs to be done. His heart is strong though, and he is good.’
‘Roggan dead, scary lady?’ Roggan scared to ask this, but Roggan think it true. Scared it true. Roggan need answer.
‘You could have been, but I have intervened. Anubis will not have you yet.’
‘Scary Lady hear my prayer to Cow lady?’
‘Yes, I have, and this is one of the reasons I am here. You have the reverence that much of CrIsis is missing. Just remember, that you must try to do all that is in your own power before calling upon the gods. You must praise us as well as beg for help.’ Scary Lady not so scary, sound like Wakiw when Roggan make big mistake. Roggan hear love and worry in Scary Lady’s voice.
‘Ok, scary la…. Roggan mean bennu. What kind of name Bennu?’
‘It is the name I have chosen for myself.’
‘Roggan like the name Bennu.’
‘Help crIsis find their way. There are walls that must be gone through.’
‘Ok, Roggan do Roggan best. Roggan make Bennu proud.’Roggan wake up, feel like Roggan get out of under water, so Roggan breathe again!! But room not look different. Still have mean Deevils, still have big mean man, with the evil glaive, ready to kill Wolf lady. Roggan want to cry! But Roggan not give up. Roggan need to show Bennu and Cow Lady, show CrIsis and Jiddy that Roggan brave. That Roggan smart. That Roggan can help. Roggan make Roggan hands covered in rock again. But then Jiddy used Magic Club! Make all the mean Deevils and the Big Mean Man disappear!! Roggan so happy, Roggan run and give Wolf lady a big hug! Roggan need to sleep. Roggan so tired, but Roggan think Roggan can fight with CrIsis. Roggan excited to make new friends, meet new rock friends, and help save Osiris god.
