The End of the Line
by
Teresa D’Amario
 
The train slowed and Wadjet stared out the window.  If only she had the ability to travel through space like the other gods did, but she’d been banned.  Leaving Egypt so long ago was apparently not the way to endear one’s self to the remaining gods and goddesses of Egypt.  But travelling by train had always been a favorite of hers, rather than taking a human airplane.  At least, once the humans created their trains.  Renting her own sleeping car made  the travelling feel less like being crammed into a tin can hurtling through the air, and more like a relaxing vacation.  But despite the steady chug chug of the train, she wasn’t on a simple tour, despite the beautiful colored leaves falling as they passed.
This world was changing, and so were the gods.  They were tired of living in their own magic created reality, and had decided to interfere once again in human lives.  Her own precognition had warned her this would happen, and how their interference could destroy this planet.  Her descendants were her only hope.  Now that one of her grandchildren was already in Egypt to meet her mate, she needed to find the rest, to make sure they were where they needed to be.
Wadjet watched the beautiful countryside pass.  North Carolina.  The last time she’d been here was to tell her grand son his mate was about to arrive.  That had been more than thirty years ago.  She fingered the soft, golden Napshua upon her arm.  Her own mate had died all those years ago, leaving her alone, tasking her with a job only she could perform.  The Napshua did it’s best to remind her, tingling whenever she came close to finding one of those descendants.   She had to find her family when it was time, and bring them together.
Another leaf dropped, plastering itself against the pane of the window in her cabin.   The once green veins were fire red, and leaf blending from orange to red, reminding her of the fires she’d started so many years ago.    Back when she’d inadvertently lit the pharaoh’s tapestries on fire.  A sad smile touched her lips.  Fire wouldn’t save the world today.  It would take much more.  Those Petiri who’d arrived so man years ago, along with her family, were the world’s salvation.
The leaf ripped apart, leaving one tiny portion caught in the corner of the window, the rest blown away.  Chaos.  Murder.  Destruction.  It was coming.  The world teetered on the same.  Bur rather than ripped by the speed of the train, it would be torn asunder by the magic of the gods.
 The train rumbled along it’s tracks, oblivious to the dangers ahead.  One more hour, and she’d be there.  The end of the Line.  The end of peace, and the beginning of the end.
To learn more about the dangers Wadjet is worried about, begin by reading Visions of Fire & Ice, a book of the Petiri.Visions

Trapped on a planet not their own, the Petiri spend their lives hiding the natural gifts that set them apart from the world. They live long and unfulfilled lives, unable to find their soul mates on this backward planet known as Earth. That is until the night Ramose comes face to face with Tamara, a woman whose gifts rival his own. Determined to find why this human is in possession of an ancient magical Petiri relic, he arranges a meeting.

But Tamara, embittered from past events, is wary despite lifelong dreams of Ramose and a sure knowledge he is her soul mate. Before long the couple find themselves ensnared in a battle that has raged for millennia in Egypt’s desert. Set, Egyptian God of Chaos, is determined to take his just due: the throne of Osiris.

The only way to stop him is for Ramose to put his trust in Tamara, but, first, he must gain the same from her. The ensuing sensual relationship is filled with romance, lust and love. Their relationship is tested by an unnatural evil. Will her powers over fire, combined with his ice be enough to win the day? Or will the ancient gods and goddesses of Egypt destroy more than just their love?
