The Cave

Traveling the Egyptian desert in search of artifacts, Sam found a cave. With a torch in one hand and a bag in the other, he entered. A hundred feet in - SNAP! A backhand to the head. As the torch flew from his hand, blood gushed from his head; he could no longer calculate the way out. Staggering, he tripped over molehills and plummeted into a pit of mummies. Face-down, something touches him. Startled, he watches a mummy rise in full battle gear.

Half dead with his back broken, he snorts the cyanide as the sword bears down upon him.
