    It starts when Ranofer is pouring gold and thinking of how his life would have been if his father wouldn't have died and he didn't have to live with Gebu, his wicked half brother that he is constantly beating him. As Ranofer is working to make a wire, Ibni the Babylonian walks up and gives Ranofer some wine skins for Gebu. Ranofer hates Ibni. Ibni gives Ranofer wine skins that he claims his wife made out of their own dates to carry home to Gebu. However he was suspicious about the wine skins because he saw Gebu pour the wine out in the courtyard at midnight.

    The next morning, Ranofer walked glumly to the stonecutter's shop. When he looked at the shop it was dusty, gloomy, and especially noisy. In the shop was the man he needed to find, Pai the foreman. While he looked through the shop he came upon a man who he thought was Pai. As it turns out his name was Zahotep. When he found Pai he got his first task. That was to pour sand into sockets. The rest of the day was dull and boring. He had a very hard time keeping his mind on his work. Over the next few weeks, Gebu did't come into the shop as much. He even started to forget Ranofer.
    ...
    The next morning Ranofer was sore all over because Gebu did not believe him. Gebu came into the shop in the middle of the morning. Pai ordered Ranofer to get a scroll and he got it and gave it to Pai. Ranofer thought why does Gebu even care for his coppers. Ranofer wondered how Gebu got so rich, could he be stealing. Ranofer needed proof to see if Gebu was so he ran to the thicket to get help from Heqet and the Ancient. Once they all arrived they thought they should spy on Gebu and his friend. Heqet said that when something is gone from a goldshop then all goldsmiths find out so Heqet could over hear what they say. They al agreed to tell each other what they will learn from the spying. The Ancient talked to Ranofer that he should not spy on Gebu at night because of khefts. After that Ranofer went home and Gebu was at home. Ranfer had some food from the storeroom and went under a tree so he could watch Gebu. It had become late and Gebu had not done anything. Then Gebu walked across the courtyard and closed the gate and Ranofer went to catch up with him. Gebu disappeared and Ranofer realized Gebu entered Mutra's wineshop. Ranofer moved to get a better view to see if Gebu walked out. Only men came and left the shop, Setma or Wenamon did not come. Gebu finally came out and went straight home. Ranofer had to beat him home. Ranofer went in alleys and got in the courtyard before Gebu. Gebu came and went straight to his room. Then Ranofer fell asleep.

    Ranofer needed to mend the seal. He found an oil pot with torches soaked with it. He spat on the clay crumbs and mixed them in his hands. He shoved them into place and ran down onto his mat. Just then Gebu came home. Ranofer was relieved to find that Gebu was way to drunk to notice the seal. He thanked the gods for barley beer. At midday the next day, Ranofer went back to the house to get the goblet only to find that it was gone. When he reached the thicket the Ancient told him that Gebu and Setma were fighting. They were fighting because Setma had raised his price for selling gold. That night Ranofer returned home early and Gebu did not ask for his coppers and Ranofer asked if he wanted them. Gebu reached out a hand and Ranofer gave them to him.

    his friend talking.talking about when to rob the tomb. Ranofer made up excuses and got his friends out of spying. He went to work as usual and after work he didn't want to go home so he went to the papyrus marsh, where he saw the Ancient who came over to talk. The Ancient knew Ranofer was troubled about something but Ranofer kept it a secret.
    Chapter 13
    The next morning Ranofer woke up and Gebu was leaving for his robbing trip to the valley of the tombs. It was so early that the stars were still out and Ranofer heard the gate click shut as Gebu left the house. Ranofer planned to follow him. Gebu was not getting away this time. Ranofer went to the store room, got some breakfast and left. It was a perfect day for them to rob a tomb because of the festival there was no one in town. When Ranofer was on a rocky trail and there was nowhere to hide, Wenomen came close to finding Ranofer but Ranofer got lucky. Ranofer followed them all the way down to the desert. They had planned the secret entrance of the tomb and knew exactly were and how to get in it. Ranofer wouldn't dare to go in the tomb but when he was terrified by what he thought was a keft but was actually a bird, the tomb was his only hiding spot.The Ancient and Heqet didn't see Ranofer on the festival day so they set off to find him. They headed for the valley of the tombs where they thought Ranofer would be. When they got there they didn't even know were to start but they didn't know they were right by the secret entrance of the tomb which was right behind the boulder.

At one point Ranofer had to cliimb up on a little cliff above Gebu and Wenamon and try to listen to them but, if Wenamon or Gebu looked right up,pair of eyes. They were not human though, they could see him. Back at the festival, the Ancient and Heqet were waiting for Ranofer but cound't find him so they decided to setof an ushabti.

    Ranofer didn't dare go to the thicket to meet his friends. Even though he trust them, they would just get a little to excited about the goblet and Heqet would make crazy spy plans. Rnaofer had to find out about Gebu's plans but, he also had to keep Heqet and the Ancient away. Somehow Ranofer managed to stop Heqet's plans of spying by making excuses. However it did make a little sense to Ranofer when Heqet said that the small room in the tomb could have had something to do with it. The Ancient told Ranofer he heard Gebu and his friend talking about when to rob the tomb. Ranofer made up excuses and got his friends out of spying. He went to work as usual and after work he didn't want to go home so he went to the papyrus marsh, where he saw the Ancient who came over to talk. The Ancient knew Ranofer was troubled about something but Ranofer kept it a secret.

    Ranofer needed to mend the seal. He found an oil pot with torches soaked with it. He spat on the clay crumbs and mixed them in his hands. He shoved them into place and ran down onto his mat. Just then Gebu came home. Ranofer was relieved to find that Gebu was way to drunk to notice the seal. He thanked the gods for barley beer. At midday the next day, Ranofer went back to the house to get the goblet only to find that it was gone. When he reached the thicket the Ancient told him that Gebu and Setma were fighting. They were fighting because Setma had raised his price for selling gold. That night Ranofer returned home early and Gebu did not ask for his coppers and Ranofer asked if he wanted them. Gebu reached out a hand and Ranofer gave them to him.
