"You sure? There could be booby traps. A pyramid is always very dangerous," he said seriously. "I'm a dangerous girl," I said bravely. "That, I believe," Tim smiled at me.

Author's note: This is a real recording from Rachel & Tim McGraw. All I did was type it out for you. You, the readers, get to decide whether they are lying or not. ??

Blah. Well I'm here. As we all should expect. I just want to say thanks for actually wanting to listen to this recording. I find this recording thing...lame. Tim's idea. OF COURSE. [Tim: It's not lame! People can finally know about the trouble! Rachel: Shut up! Just get the bloody microphones to work!] Sorry, that was him. He's working on a...never mind. Before I go on any further, I'm Rachel McGraw. I'm, um, a wizard. Unexpected. Superficial. Awkward. Supercalifragilisticexpidelidocious. How did it happen? Quite a long story. But I guess you'll need to hear it. Without you hearing this, the world may end so soon, that you won't even have time to celebrate your last birthday. The world might go KA-BOOM! Then we'll all float in space, grasping for breath. HAHA. Yeah right, like that would happen. [Tim: Seriously, now you're just scaring them. Rachel: What? I'm just telling the truth!] Okay, Tim here. No more weird comments, I swear. [Rachel: Weird? Whatever. Tim: No, don't! *BOOM*] My sister did it again. That WAS a trap we're planning for Zia Rashid. Ever heard of the Kanes? You know, Sadie & Carter Kane. [Rachel: Tim likes Sadie. Oooh. Tim: Don't interrupt! Rachel: Oopss, sorry.] Yeah well, Zia Rashid is a magician just like Sadie & Carter. The difference is, she hates us. Wizards & magicians don't really go well together. She wants to destroy us. I got a decoy out to get her, that's why we're here working on the bomb. But then Rachel touches things & ruins it! Author's note: This is a real recording from Rachel & Tim McGraw.

Just tell them the friggin story!] Ah, okay. So you know Tim McGraw? The OLD Tim McGraw. The Country singer Tim McGraw. Yeah, that's our dad. He's a wizard. Kind of hard to believe especially when you're a fan of him. He's a music wizard. Music wizards can do magic ONLY after they sing. When dad got married with mom, he can't keep being a wizard because wizards were not allowed to have a relationship with mortals. He gave up his magic, but we, his children, still got the ability to do magic. He trained us hard until we're great wizards. That is, until someone persuaded me to follow the amulet. [Rachel: Again, Tim likes Sadie. Oooh.] We found the amulet that Sadie & Carter placed in the locker. We followed the amulet to meet them. They said that whoever finds that amulet must be a magician. We went inside a factory. But as we step a little each time, we found out that we were inside a beautiful mansion. A blonde girl walked up to us and said, "Hi, you must be Tim and Rachel." Her smiling was blazing beautiful. Every part of her was amazing. Her combat boots matched with her ripped jeans and white T-shirt. "Yeah, so, this is a factory?" asked Rachel. "A mansion, with a little magic, our uncle Amos made it looked like a factory from the outside," said a boy in the shadow. "Oh my god, that is so bloody cool!" said Rachel with a huge smile on her face. The boy walked out of the shadow and held his hand out. "Carter Kane, nice to meet you," he said. Rachel shook his hand and said, "Rachel McGraw," she said with a smile. "I'm Sadie Kane, come on in," said the blonde girl. "Rach, you, umm, you know, like him?" I asked her. She shook her head.

"He's not my type. Come one!" she said. Well I don't know about you but I KNOW she likes him. Until today, she had never admitted she likes him. [Rachel: I seriously don't like him! Tim: Nobody cares!] We walked to a living room. The room was enormous. A giant flat screen TV was at my right, and a buffet bar was on my left. This house is wicked! Out of the corner of my eye, a baboon ran up to me and kept on jumping in front of me. "Whoa, slow down there little guy. What are you doing here?" I asked the baboon. "Eww, is that a baboon? Why do you have that here?" said Rachel with a disgusted look on her face. "Rach!" I snapped. "Nah, it's okay. I get that often. Uncle Amos said he can protect us," said Carter. Can my sister be more embarrassing?! [Rachel: Is that a challenge?! Tim: No! It's a rhetorical question!] "Oh," said Rachel. Carter kept on looking at her, does he like her or something? Or maybe there's something embarrassing about her. "Buffet anybody? We can have a snack first before we begin our training," said Sadie with a smile. Her smile was so beautiful that I can hardly resist. I took a plate and starting putting all sorts of delicates on it. Suddenly, my plate slipped out of my hands. "Oh no! I'm so sorry! I didn't mean to do it!" I said, scared. "It's okay, we can use magic," said Sadie, with a tone of comfort in her voice. She whispered something, and the plate was on her hands, in one piece, along with all the food. "Enjoy!" she said cheerfully. Rachel was at awe. Her mouth was half open and she was staring at me like she just saw a ghost. "Did you see that?" she whispered. "See what?" I asked quietly. "There was a glowing hieroglyphs on the plate!" she whispered, getting annoyed that I didn't saw it. "No way!" I shouted! Sadie and Carter looked at us, confused. "Psh, yeah, no way! These shrimps are totally imported! Where did you buy these?" said Rachel, trying to cover up myshout. "Egypt, they have the best shrimps in the world!" replied Carter. "I'm totally digging in! Come one, Tim!" said Rachel, still doing her awkward little act. I glanced back at Sadie. After the shout, guess there's no way I can impress her. "Heya little fella, what's the shouting back there?" asked Rachel, like she was talking to a little puppy. "Just...surprise I guess," I said. I looked at my plate. "I'm hungry alright, but I got no appetite," I told Rachel. "Eat up, we'll need it if they need to 'train' us," said Rachel. She's...kind?! Is that possible for someone like Rachel to be kind?! I thought she's...ow! [Tim: Rachel! Rachel: Tim! Tim: Don't kick me! Rachel: What were you going to say?] RIGHT, as I said. I thought she's...umm...harsh. I have to be more careful with my words otherwise I'll get both of my legs blue!??"Alright, you guys ready?" asked Sadie. "Ready as ever!" I exclaimed. "Okay, first of all, we'll need to test you guys of what you know about being a magician," said Carter. "We're wizards," said Tim. "What? There must be some mistakes, only a true magician can find the amulet," replied Carter. "Our dad's a music wizard," I sad softly. "Tim McGraw?" asked Sadie. I nodded. How'd she know that Tim McGraw is our dad? "Oh yes, I've heard. Your mom's a magician. To magicians, your children will get the magician's powers, even if your dad's a wizard," explained Carter. "That really tells why mom's never around when dad teaches us magic," said Tim. Sadie and Carter nodded. Carter looked at me in the eye, "Now, for the test." "Is this safe?" I asked. "Trust me," said Carter. I sighed. I'm suppose to trust someone I just met? "Fine," I said as I walked through a blackAuthor's note: This is a real recording from Rachel & Tim McGraw.

"Trust me," said Carter. I sighed. I'm suppose to trust someone I just met? "Fine," I said as I walked through a black door. I fell down quickly from the door. My stomach was churning and my vision was blur as I tried to adjust to this new place. "Is this a temple?" I asked myself. "No, it's the Land of The Dead," answered someone. I turned around. A boy around my age was standing in front of me wearing a leather jacket, ripped jeans, and combat boots. He was gorgeous. "Who are you?" I asked him. "Anubis, god of the Dead," he answered with a smile. I smiled back. "Come with me," he said as he offered me his hand.  "AAAAHHHH!" I shouted. "WHY DID YOU BRING ME HERE?!" Sadie smiled at me. "Don't worry, it's just a test. It won't hurt you!" I looked back as I ran. "YOU SURE THAT LARGE CROCODILE WON'T KILL ME TO PIECES THEN EAT ME?!" I shouted at Sadie. "Tim, don't you trust me?" she asked. "Not really," I whispered. [Rachel: Pshft, yeah right. You'd even go to hell if you can be with her! Tim: But a large crocodile was chasing me!] As I was running, I saw a large pyramid at my right. I ran towards it and went inside. I quickly blocked the exit so that large crocodile wouldn't eat me. I sighed. How can I impress Sadie if I'm here, hiding, from a large crocodile? "I'm such a wimp!" I shouted. "What is that thing?!" I asked in disgust. "That 'thing' could devour your heart if the feather of truth says that you are untruthful," replied Anubis. "Wait, why am I even here?" I asked him. He smiled at me. His smile was so sweet and his eyes were gleaming in the dark. "The test," he replied. Anubis led me to another black door. "Another black door? Don't you have other doors?" I asked. "Yes, but only this door would lead you to your destiny," he replied. "Wait! Will I ever see you again?" I asked. "Don't worry, I'll come to your dreams," he said. Everything started to fade. Anubis was gone, and so was the temple. Now, I'malone in the dark. The only way out was the black door, which just changed into a gleaming white door. I walked through it. As I thought, I fell down quickly to the floor. My stomach churned, my vision blurred, but there's something else. It felt like I was laid on someone's dead body. [Tim: Yeah, me!!! Do you know how heavy were you?! Rachel: I'm only 49kg!] So yeah, it was Tim. I got up and looked around. "Where are we?" I asked Tim. "Pyramid, a large crocodile was chasing me so I went here," he replied. "What?" I asked him. "Never mind the crocodile part. Where have you been?" he asked. I blushed. I don't think I should tell him about Anubis. "Carter led me to Anubis's temple," I told him. "Anubis? The god of the Dead?" he asked. "Yeah, he was umm...kind," I replied. "Hey, let's check out this pyramid." He glared at me. "You sure? There could be booby traps. A pyramid is always very dangerous," he said seriously. "I'm a dangerous girl," I said bravely. "That, I believe," Tim smiled at me.  We followed the staircase down to the centre of the pyramid. Once we got there, Tim started acting like he was in a spy movie. He crouched down low, holding his hands like a gun and started making weird moves. "Pshft, what are you doing?" I asked him. He ignored me. We continued walking until we found two thrones. One was decorated like a crescent moon with baby blue colors. The other one was decorated like the cloud with soft white-blue colors. "Your thrones, your Highness," hissed someone behind the thrones. I took out a sharp thing from my pocket just to defend myself. "A dagger?" I asked myself. "Katoptris, why that is a very harsh weapon you got there," replied the stranger with a soothing tone, yet scary too. "Who are you?" asked Tim bravely, holding a weapon too. "Your worst enemy.

"Trust me," said Carter. I sighed. I'm suppose to trust someone I just met? "Fine," I said as I walked through a black door. I fell down quickly from the door. My stomach was churning and my vision was blur as I tried to adjust to this new place. "Is this a temple?" I asked myself. "No, it's the Land of The Dead," answered someone. I turned around. A boy around my age was standing in front of me wearing a leather jacket, ripped jeans, and combat boots. He was gorgeous. "Who are you?" I asked him. "Anubis, god of the Dead," he answered with a smile. I smiled back. "Come with me," he said as he offered me his hand.  "AAAAHHHH!" I shouted. "WHY DID YOU BRING ME HERE?!" Sadie smiled at me. "Don't worry, it's just a test. It won't hurt you!" I looked back as I ran. "YOU SURE THAT LARGE CROCODILE WON'T KILL ME TO PIECES THEN EAT ME?!" I shouted at Sadie. "Tim, don't you trust me?" she asked. "Not really," I whispered. [Rachel: Pshft, yeah right. You'd even go to hell if you can be with her! Tim: But a large crocodile was chasing me!] As I was running, I saw a large pyramid at my right. I ran towards it and went inside. I quickly blocked the exit so that large crocodile wouldn't eat me. I sighed. How can I impress Sadie if I'm here, hiding, from a large crocodile? "I'm such a wimp!" I shouted. "What is that thing?!" I asked in disgust. "That 'thing' could devour your heart if the feather of truth says that you are untruthful," replied Anubis. "Wait, why am I even here?" I asked him. He smiled at me. His smile was so sweet and his eyes were gleaming in the dark. "The test," he replied. Anubis led me to another black door. "Another black door? Don't you have other doors?" I asked. "Yes, but only this door would lead you to your destiny," he replied. "Wait! Will I ever see you again?" I asked. "Don't worry, I'll come to your dreams," he said. Everything started to fade. Anubis was gone, and so was the temple. Now, I'm alone in the dark. The only way out was the black door, which just changed into a gleaming white door. I walked through it. As I thought, I fell down quickly to the floor. My stomach churned, my vision blurred, but there's something else. It felt like I was laid on someone's dead body. [Tim: Yeah, me!!! Do you know how heavy were you?! Rachel: I'm only 49kg!] So yeah, it was Tim. I got up and looked around. "Where are we?" I asked Tim. "Pyramid, a large crocodile was chasing me so I went here," he replied. "What?" I asked him. "Never mind the crocodile part. Where have you been?" he asked. I blushed. I don't think I should tell him about Anubis. "Carter led me to Anubis's temple," I told him. "Anubis? The god of the Dead?" he asked. "Yeah, he was umm...kind," I replied. "Hey, let's check out this pyramid." He glared at me. "You sure? There could be booby traps. A pyramid is always very dangerous," he said seriously. "I'm a dangerous girl," I said bravely. "That, I believe," Tim smiled at me.  We followed the staircase down to the centre of the pyramid. Once we got there, Tim started acting like he was in a spy movie. He crouched down low, holding his hands like a gun and started making weird moves. "Pshft, what are you doing?" I asked him. He ignored me. We continued walking until we found two thrones. One was decorated like a crescent moon with baby blue colors. The other one was decorated like the cloud with soft white-blue colors. "Your thrones, your Highness," hissed someone behind the thrones. I took out a sharp thing from my pocket just to defend myself. "A dagger?" I asked myself. "Katoptris, why that is a very harsh weapon you got there," replied the stranger with a soothing tone, yet scary too. "Who are you?" asked Tim bravely, holding a weapon too. "Your worst enemy. Khopesh? You are brave, young boy!" the stranger exclaimed happily. "Show yourself," I hissed. The stranger walked forward. He was HIDEOUS, I tell you. [Tim: You got that right!] His head was a normal human head, except he has a thousand scars on it. His body was normal human body, except that it was bloody red. His feet were like a kangaroo's feet. "The moon god comes, asking who I am. The cloud goddess asks me to show myself. Are you that brave to defeat me? Will you?! I will take your throne!" he shouted. "Are you crazy?" I asked him. "If I was crazy, your parents would be insane! They let your blood gold, allowing you to be like this!" he shouted. "Kh...Khioshe?" I asked. "You remembered? Goodie! We'll have a good fight," he said, narrowing his eyebrows. He jumped at Tim, waving his knife around. Tim fought back using his Khopesh. I stood there, confused, not knowing what to do. I walked toward the cloud throne. "Am I really a goddess? All this time, thinking I was normal, and I'm this?" I whispered. I sat at the throne. Light shimmered around me. My shirt, jeans, and converse changed to a white dress. My hair was braided properly and a crown settled on top of my head. "Whoa. Rachel?" Tim asked. "Tim, watch out!" I shouted. He turned around quickly and struck Khioshe by his chest. Blue blood swirled out of his heart. "You will pay this! I will get you two!" he shouted as he died slowly. Tim walked towards his throne. He sat there and light shimmered around him. His clothes changed to old linen clothes. A crown sat on top of his head. "We're...gods?" he asked. "I doubt this is a dream. It's too real," I told him.  "Rachel! Tim! What happened?" asked Carter. "Wait, this isn't a test?" I asked. "Someone tricked you. You went through the wrong door. Someone was trying to kill you..." heAuthor's note: This is a real recording from Rachel & Tim McGraw. All I did was type it out for you. You, the readers, get to decide whether they are lying or not. ??Blah. Well I'm here. As we all should expect. I just want to say thanks for actually wanting to listen to this recording. I find this recording thing...lame. Tim's idea. OF COURSE. [Tim: It's not lame! People can finally know about the trouble! Rachel: Shut up! Just get the bloody microphones to work!] Sorry, that was him. He's working on a...never mind. Before I go on any further, I'm Rachel McGraw. I'm, um, a wizard. Unexpected. Superficial. Awkward. Supercalifragilisticexpidelidocious. How did it happen? Quite a long story. But I guess you'll need to hear it. Without you hearing this, the world may end so soon, that you won't even have time to celebrate your last birthday. The world might go KA-BOOM! Then we'll all float in space, grasping for breath. HAHA. Yeah right, like that would happen. [Tim: Seriously, now you're just scaring them. Rachel: What? I'm just telling the truth!] Okay, Tim here. No more weird comments, I swear. [Rachel: Weird? Whatever. Tim: No, don't! *BOOM*] My sister did it again. That WAS a trap we're planning for Zia Rashid. Ever heard of the Kanes? You know, Sadie & Carter Kane. [Rachel: Tim likes Sadie. Oooh. Tim: Don't interrupt! Rachel: Oopss, sorry.] Yeah well, Zia Rashid is a magician just like Sadie & Carter. The difference is, she hates us. Wizards & magicians don't really go well together. She wants to destroy us. I got a decoy out to get her, that's why we're here working on the bomb. But then Rachel touches things & ruins it! [Rachel: Enough chitchat! Just tell them the friggin story!] Ah, okay. So you know Tim McGraw? The OLD Tim McGraw. The Country singer Tim McGraw. Yeah, that's our dad. He's a wizard. Kind of hard to believe especially when you're a fan of him. He's a music wizard. Music wizards can do magic ONLY after they sing. When dad got married with mom, he can't keep being a wizard because wizards were not allowed to have a relationship with mortals. He gave up his magic, but we, his children, still got the ability to do magic. He trained us hard until we're great wizards. That is, until someone persuaded me to follow the amulet. [Rachel: Again, Tim likes Sadie. Oooh.] We found the amulet that Sadie & Carter placed in the locker. We followed the amulet to meet them. They said that whoever finds that amulet must be a magician. We went inside a factory. But as we step a little each time, we found out that we were inside a beautiful mansion. A blonde girl walked up to us and said, "Hi, you must be Tim and Rachel." Her smiling was blazing beautiful. Every part of her was amazing. Her combat boots matched with her ripped jeans and white T-shirt. "Yeah, so, this is a factory?" asked Rachel. "A mansion, with a little magic, our uncle Amos made it looked like a factory from the outside," said a boy in the shadow. "Oh my god, that is so bloody cool!" said Rachel with a huge smile on her face. The boy walked out of the shadow and held his hand out. "Carter Kane, nice to meet you," he said. Rachel shook his hand and said, "Rachel McGraw," she said with a smile. "I'm Sadie Kane, come on in," said the blonde girl. "Rach, you, umm, you know, like him?" I asked her. She shook her head. "He's not my type. Come one!" she said. Well I don't know about you but I KNOW she likes him. Until today, she had never admitted she likes him. [Rachel: I seriously don't like him! Tim: Nobody cares!] We walked to a living room. The room was enormous. A giant flat screen TV was at my right, and a buffet bar was on my left. This house is wicked! Out of the corner of my eye, a baboon ran up to me and kept on jumping in front of me. "Whoa, slow down there little guy. What are you doing here?" I asked the baboon. "Eww, is that a baboon? Why do you have that here?" said Rachel with a disgusted look on her face. "Rach!" I snapped. "Nah, it's okay. I get that often. Uncle Amos said he can protect us," said Carter. Can my sister be more embarrassing?! [Rachel: Is that a challenge?! Tim: No! It's a rhetorical question!] "Oh," said Rachel. Carter kept on looking at her, does he like her or something? Or maybe there's something embarrassing about her. "Buffet anybody? We can have a snack first before we begin our training," said Sadie with a smile. Her smile was so beautiful that I can hardly resist. I took a plate and starting putting all sorts of delicates on it. Suddenly, my plate slipped out of my hands. "Oh no! I'm so sorry! I didn't mean to do it!" I said, scared. "It's okay, we can use magic," said Sadie, with a tone of comfort in her voice. She whispered something, and the plate was on her hands, in one piece, along with all the food. "Enjoy!" she said cheerfully. Rachel was at awe. Her mouth was half open and she was staring at me like she just saw a ghost. "Did you see that?" she whispered. "See what?" I asked quietly. "There was a glowing hieroglyphs on the plate!" she whispered, getting annoyed that I didn't saw it. "No way!" I shouted! Sadie and Carter looked at us, confused. "Psh, yeah, no way! These shrimps are totally imported! Where did you buy these?" said Rachel, trying to cover up my shout. "Egypt, they have the best shrimps in the world!" replied Carter. "I'm totally digging in! Come one, Tim!" said Rachel, still doing her awkward little act. I glanced back at Sadie. After the shout, guess there's no way I can impress her. "Heya little fella, what's the shouting back there?" asked Rachel, like she was talking to a little puppy. "Just...surprise I guess," I said. I looked at my plate. "I'm hungry alright, but I got no appetite," I told Rachel. "Eat up, we'll need it if they need to 'train' us," said Rachel. She's...kind?! Is that possible for someone like Rachel to be kind?! I thought she's...ow! [Tim: Rachel! Rachel: Tim! Tim: Don't kick me! Rachel: What were you going to say?] RIGHT, as I said. I thought she's...umm...harsh. I have to be more careful with my words otherwise I'll get both of my legs blue!??"Alright, you guys ready?" asked Sadie. "Ready as ever!" I exclaimed. "Okay, first of all, we'll need to test you guys of what you know about being a magician," said Carter. "We're wizards," said Tim. "What? There must be some mistakes, only a true magician can find the amulet," replied Carter. "Our dad's a music wizard," I sad softly. "Tim McGraw?" asked Sadie. I nodded. How'd she know that Tim McGraw is our dad? "Oh yes, I've heard. Your mom's a magician. To magicians, your children will get the magician's powers, even if your dad's a wizard," explained Carter. "That really tells why mom's never around when dad teaches us magic," said Tim. Sadie and Carter nodded. Carter looked at me in the eye, "Now, for the test." "Is this safe?" I asked. "Trust me," said Carter. I sighed. I'm suppose to trust someone I just met? "Fine," I said as I walked through a black door. I fell down quickly from the door.

"Don't worry, it's just a test. It won't hurt you!" I looked back as I ran. "YOU SURE THAT LARGE CROCODILE WON'T KILL ME TO PIECES THEN EAT ME?!" I shouted at Sadie. "Tim, don't you trust me?" she asked. "Not really," I whispered. [Rachel: Pshft, yeah right. You'd even go to hell if you can be with her!

Do you know how heavy were you?! Rachel: I'm only 49kg!] So yeah, it was Tim. I got up and looked around. "Where are we?" I asked Tim. "Pyramid, a large crocodile was chasing me so I went here," he replied. "What?" I asked him. "Never mind the crocodile part. Where have you been?" he asked. I blushed.

[Tim: You got that right!] His head was a normal human head, except he has a thousand scars on it. His body was normal human body, except that it was bloody red. His feet were like a kangaroo's feet. "The moon god comes, asking who I am. The cloud goddess asks me to show myself. Are you that brave to defeat me? Will you?! I will take your throne!" he shouted. "Are you crazy?" I asked him. "If I was crazy, your parents would be insane! They let your blood gold, allowing you to be like this!" he shouted. "Kh...Khioshe?" I asked. "You remembered? Goodie! We'll have a good fight," he said, narrowing his eyebrows. He jumped at Tim, waving his knife around. Tim fought back using his Khopesh. I stood there, confused, not knowing what to do. I walked toward the cloud throne. "Am I really a goddess? All this time, thinking I was normal, and I'm this?" I whispered. I sat at the throne. Light shimmered around me. My shirt, jeans, and converse changed to a white dress. My hair was braided properly and a crown settled on top of my head. "Whoa. Rachel?" Tim asked. "Tim, watch out!" I shouted. He turned around quickly and struck Khioshe by his chest. Blue blood swirled out of his heart. "You will pay this! I will get you two!" he shouted as he died slowly. Tim walked towards his throne. He sat there and light shimmered around him. His clothes changed to old linen clothes. A crown sat on top of his head. "We're...gods?" he asked. "I doubt this is a dream. It's too real," I told him.  "Rachel! Tim! What happened?" asked Carter. "Wait, this isn't a test?" I asked. "Someone tricked you. You went through the wrong door. Someone was trying to kill you..." he explained. "Because we're gods?" asked Tim. Sadie and Carter stared at us. Something gleamed in front of us, and slowly, a human form was smiling at us. "Dad," said Sadie. "I'm here to take Rachel and Tim with all the other gods and goddesses. They belong with us now," said Osiris. "Us? Really? Wow," I replied, not knowing what to say. "It has been great meeting with you two, I'll miss you guys," said Sadie. "Yeah, you guys were great magicians, and now I know why," smiled Carter. A floating cloud went down to us. Osiris ushered us on top of the cloud. As the cloud lift three of us up, we smiled down, waving at Carter and Sadie, the two friends we'll never forget. [Tim: Hey! Not fair, the story's done and you told most of it! Rachel: Who cares :P] THE END
