Bast sat in his little hut in the Upper Egypt dessert where he lived. He knew he was old and would pass away soon.
“Heaven is where good people go right?” said Donkor the youngest grandchild.
“Bast!” yelled Aten his oldest son (which means light of the sun).
“What!” Bast quietly said back. “I traded some papyrus for some jewels today!”
“What are you going to do with it?” Bast asked.
“I don’t know yet!” Aten answered.
“If you sell how much will you sell it for?” Bast asked again.
“I’m not sure yet!” shouted Aten sounding frustrated.
Then there was a long pause until Donkor said “can we go outside?”
Bast said “Fine we can go outside.”
“Yay” shouted Donkor.
So they all went outside and walked to the Nile.
“Let’s bring some water home” said Aten
“Ok” answered Bast
So Bast got down on his knees and then ‘Whoosh’ a big wind blew and Bast couldn’t keep balance and fell into the waters below.
When he opened his eyes he saw a scale. Could this be the feather weighing. Then he heard a loud voice.
“You must be Bast the one who has just fallen into the water. I am Anubis God of death.”
“Hi” said Bast in a quiet voice.
“Shall we get to it?” Anubis asked and then two of Anubis’s helpers came out one with a feather and one with a jar.
Bast thought the jar was his soul.
“Alright put the feather on!” yelled Anubis.
The helper with the feather put it on the left side of the scale. And it tipped a little to the left.
Bast knew that the feather had to be lighter than the soul.
Next Anubis shouted “put the soul on” and the other person put the jar on the scale.
Surprisingly the scale didn’t move than Bast heard someone say “congratulations Bast you are going to heaven.
Bast was thrilled. Then he saw a door appear in front of him that said Stairs to heaven. He walked through and then saw heaven for the first time.
