Isis and Osiris
By Vickie Chao
  

1     A long, long time ago, a legend tells us that a god named Osiris was the king of Egypt. He was a very kind king. He made fair laws. He taught his people how to farm the land. And he showed them how to respect the gods. Thanks to Osiris, people lived in peace. They were very happy.
 
2     Set, Osiris's brother, was jealous of Osiris. He wanted to be the king himself. He spent a lot of time thinking how he could get rid of Osiris. One day, an evil idea came to him. Set ordered a beautiful wooden chest. The chest was a rare item at the time because trees did not grow in Egypt. After he received the chest, he held a dinner party honoring Osiris. Osiris and many gods came to his party. They ate and drank. They had a great time!
 
3     After the feast, Set brought out the beautiful wooden chest for all to see. He told his guests that he would give the chest to whoever fit it best. The guests were excited. They took turns getting into the chest. But none of them fit it perfectly. Then, Set turned to his brother. He asked Osiris to give it a try, too. Osiris stepped into the chest. He fit in it perfectly! As soon as Osiris got into the chest, Set's seventy-two wicked friends surrounded the chest and nailed the lid shut. They sealed every crack with molten lead so no air could enter. After the deed was done, they threw the chest into the Nile River.
