A Quick & Dirty Nefertiti Overdrive Tale
Cast of Characters:
Amen-Ta, Nobility with Sass
Amen-ta is standing on a balcony overlooking the city below, she is bored and wishes to partake in the celebrations that seem to be going on below. It is Wepet Renpet and the people are happy, gathering, celebrating, and making merry with the promise of a good year ahead. Amen-ta is bored and had wanted to go out with some friends, but her father would not have none of that since he has plans for the evening as well. He forbids her from leaving and since she is not going to be joining the others in the main house she can stay out her and dwell on that for a while and he leaves.
She turns to enter the humble abode when she spots movement along the roof top, when she looks up there are a group of shadowy figures scaling down the wall towards the balcony. Before she can let out a scream, a hand is over her mouth and a sack is placed over her head and then it’s lights out!
Amen ta comes too in an alley way since she is bound and gagged and wrapped up in a sack. She is being carried by the kidnappers and she is working on getting free from her bonds when the group of men stop and she hears voices. It seems her kidnappers have crossed into another gangs territory without their permission and now a tribute must be made. And that’s not going to happen since the leader of the kidnappers state they are on an extremely important assignment for a high priest and that this job needs to be done. The other gang states they will do the job but then that’s when the daggers are drawn and a fight breaks out.
Amen-ta hits the ground like a sack of potatoes but she uses the diversion to loosen the bonds and get free. As the gang fight around her she crawls through the grounds and into an alley and that’s when she notices that the fighting has stopped. Since the rival gang recognizes the princess and the other gang wants to bring her to the high priest and then there is a chase that happens. Amen-ta using the Hands of Amun-Ra scales the wall to elude her pursuers and run along the side of the roof.
Now this is a pretty big chase scene that happens, image a scene from Jason Bourne movie with her being chased and jumping from rooftop to rooftop and going from room to room while eventually dealing with small clusters of her kidnappers and the rival gang. It’s a pretty brutal as well since the narrative was pretty cinematic and I can’t do it justice with mere words here. Here are a couple of the scenes.
As Amen-ta runs from a building she leaps across and lands on the other roof and then kicks up as two other fellows do the same. She connects with her foot and both men drop to the alley below. She then jumps from rooftop into an open window as a family is sitting down for a meal and she exits out the other window and into another building where she stops and lucks around and sees some twine and then she makes a makeshift trip wire across the window she entered before leaving. As she leaves she hears the scream of one fellow plummeting.
She fled through a crowded street as one big gang member is tossing people out of his way to get to her and she turns a corner to see two of her kidnappers scanning the rooftops and she makes a bee-line right for them. By the time they see her she has built up enough speed to grab a rug and basically does a Pete Townsend guitar slide across the ground while punching both guys in the nuts. She grabs one of their knifes and rolls up to a stop as the big brute comes around the corner and throws her dagger at him. Hitting him right between the eyes and he staggers back.
Amen-ta makes it back home, and she scales the wall and up to the balcony when she stands and checks out her outfit when her father emerges and asks if she has made a decision. The night is still young and she can still celebrate with them since she is not going out side. She apologizes to her father and as she walks away from the balcony she breaks the fourth wall and winks to you dear reader.
And that was the end of that quick & dirty session.
