Chapter 1: Pharaoh Knows Best

Despite that the September Semi fiasco of yesterday forced all the RADs to precautionarily keep their children inside, Cleo has been able to dodge some of that bullet because her father was out of town. He is due to return today, though, and Cleo and her servants Hasina and Beb are working hard to prepare a suitable welcome. Ramses de Nile and his assistant Manu arrive a little earlier than planned, but most of the preparations are already done. Cleo goes to greet her father and is surprised when he greets her back with a warmth that is unusual for him. It turns out that, despite being out of town, Ramses knows everything that happened yesterday, except for the involvement of any RADs but Frankie Stein. His concern for his daughter's safety is what brought on his unusual demeanor. Cleo is mostly annoyed her father somehow always manages to know what's happening. She accompanies him to the dining room so he can tell about his journey. Ramses tells about his excavation work in his sister's, Nefertiti's, tomb and the impressive jewels found there. Manu opens the briefcase to show Cleo the finds, but to Ramses's annoyance, Cleo is only interested in one item: a Vogue business card from Anna Wintour. Cleo insists he tells the story behind that and Ramses confides he met the normie on the plane from Cairo and that she was looking to do a "Cairo couture" fashion shoot in the Oregon sand dunes. Ramses makes no secret of his disinterest, but Cleo is ecstatic. She insists he lets her contact Anna Wintour and be a model for the shoot and wear her aunt's jewelry, promising in return that she'll supervise the shoot to make sure their interests won't be damaged. Ramses eventually gives in and is profusely thanked for it. Next, Cleo calls her friends to meet with them and speak about the shoot.
