Good news!

Good news, the oil of attar did the trick! I had to mix it with garlic, and it smelled vile, but the funerary mask has been neutralized. Of course, I’ll need to check it again during the next dark of the moon, but for now we’re safe from beastly skin conditions.

The bad news is the scritching sound is back, which means it wasn’t the mask. I’m really hoping it’s a mouse. Or even a rat. I’d take a rat any day over some of the other possibilities. Unfortunately, Isis (my cat) went to investigate the sound then high-tailed it out of there. Never a good sign.

Oh. I realized I’ve never explained what exactly it is that I do to keep the museum safe, although I imagine you’re getting the picture. You see, museums receive all sorts of old, ancient artifacts that have been extracted from graves or unearthed from hidden burial places. (Horribly grisly, isn’t it? Mother and Father assure me that it is quite acceptable when it is for scientific research and history. Even so, I’m sure I wouldn’t like it if someone removed my bones from my final resting place.)

The problem is, many of these items still have ancient black magic or curses attached to them, and apparently, here at the Museum of Legends and Antiquities, I’m the only one who can see them. Which in turn means I’m the only one who can remove them!

Can you see why I have no time for governesses?

    Good excuse for not having a governess…I think I’ll try it! “Dear Governess, I’m sorry but I am much too busy to learn today…I must remove several dozen curses from Ancient Egyptian artifacts…hope you are well. -Claire.”

    I’m sorry that you’re so impatient Kaitlyn, but it did take two years for someone {Claire} to reply.
