Yugi: Isis, / you have to be Malik’s sister!
Yugi: I hope you can tell us… / Why Malik is trying so
hard to kill us…
Yugi: Why dark Malik, wants to take away so many
innocent people’s life?
Isis: Yugi’s body was chosen by the pharaoh’s
spirit to share…
Isis: I understand now. / I will tell them…
Isis: About the tragedy of the Ishtar family…
Isis: We the Ishtar family, are the protectors of the two millennium
items in the underground tomb and the guardians of the pharaoh’s memories…
Isis: The heir of the family would go through a ceremony to get the
pharaoh’s memory carved into his back… / Aside from that anything that has to do
with the outside world is completely forbidden.
Isis: That was the life
of my little brother Malik.
Isis: The tragedy happened five years ago -
/ One year after Malik took the ceremony –
Father: Hey, Rishid…
Father: How is Malik’s fever?
Rishid: Looks like

are only a servant…

/ Isis: Shhh! / Malik, you are talking too loud!
Malik: Don’t worry.
Father should be sleeping now. / Isis: …
Malik: Didn’t we plan a lot,
for this day? / I fake a fever and sleep. Then I sneak outside. Father will
Isis: If he find out, we are in deep trouble… / We would be
breaking one of the Ishtar laws…
Malik: Don’t worry! / Rishid is here to
take care of everything. / Right? / Rishid: Yes.
Malik: Big sister… / No
matter what… I still want see the view of outside world… / No matter what…
Malik: I beg you… / Just once…
Rishid: Mistress Isis, / I will take care of everything after this… /
Please grant Master Malik his wish…
Isis: I understand. / We will leave

Isis: But remember, only two hours… / When the
time’s up, we have to come back! / Malik: Yes!
Isis: That was the first

Malik: Someone dropped a book. / It’s unacceptable that people would
just step on books…
Malik: Oh? / These are so lifelike… these objects in

sister… / Even if I continue to live in this world, I will never ever be able to
ride on a motorcycle, and speed across this great piece of land.
Isis: Malik… It’s time to go. / Malik: What… That fast?!
Isis: Hadn’t we made a deal, / two hours only?
Malik: I know… /
But at least… / Let me ripe this out and bring back home!
promise I will not let dad see it.
Shaddi: Soon, the
spirit of the great pharaoh will be awaken…
Malik: …! / Isis: Pharaoh?
Isis: Who are you?
Shaddi: Guardians of the tomb… / From now on,
your fate… / will be a tragedy with blood that will spite your bloodline apart…
Shaddi: This is all just the will of the pharaoh.
Malik’s past is so darn sad!!!! *sniff* And so is Isis! Poor girl, she never got
a chance to smile did she? She lost her innocence even though she was so young!
Anyway, how did you like the chapter? I love this chapter. It’s now my
favourite chapter. I feel sorry for Malik but feel even more sorry for Isis, who
has to watch everything happen but has no power to change anything. As Serenity
said Isis’ eyes look so sad!!!
I hope this chapter shows you something
about Isis and Malik, and I hope you like them even better now that you know
about them. Especially, Isis, who I think deserves so much more attention than
she is given. *sigh*
