Ammonet
by Eilidh17

“You are the only one who can save the boy, Danyel.” It is my dying wish, the last hope I carry from my life lived in the shadows of another. Ammonet is powerful; a queen of her species, and yet a traitor to her own kind. Apophis knew not of her plans to conceal the child from him.
The threat from Heru’ur was manufactured by her hand. A clever ruse to steer Apophis away from her true intent, it quickly turned deadly when Heru’ur spared no resource to hunt down the child.
Hiding him was Ammonet’s only choice, but sending him to Kheb was my idea.
In the language of old, Kheb was Khebet, a place known only by Isis, for it was where she hid Horus from Seth. Ra the mighty was told to have focused the sun to burn the Earth in retribution against Seth, but he too did not know the location of Khebet. Among the temple maidens of Isis, Khebet’s location is a matter of honor and only the initiated are anointed with the knowledge.
And so it is a mystery handed down through the wives and daughters of the Abydonians, and one I know well.
For all her traitorous thoughts, Ammonet does love Apophis, but it is a love of wealth and power, not one of passion. She was complicit in his desire to bear a child until she discovered his plans to use him as the ultimate host. Apophis, generous lover that he was for his queen, was blinded by the supremacy he would wield over the other System Lords; he drank far too greedily from the cup of power.
We are hosts: Those chosen as vessels for parasites who would be gods.
But we are not powerless.
Sleep is the beast of us all and in Ammonet’s broken dreams I planted the seeds of hope; small snippets of ideas for her to grow and claim as her own. And while she gloated at her own cleverness, and I appreciatively lauded her masterful plans from the tiny piece of my mind I still controlled, I was learning.
“Kheb.”
