When Evelyn's car pulled up to the British Museum, she exited the vehicle, informing her chauffer that she would be ready in a couple of hours. Much to Evelyn's own surprise, it seemed that despite her recent resignation as curator of the Ancient Egypt and Sudan department two months ago, she was still visiting the museum frequently to research for her book: Curse of the Pharaohs: Myth and Mystery.
Hamunaptra, Evelyn felt, had opened a whole new world for her to explore; and one that Evelyn wondered just how much her father Howard had dabbled in. Her beliefs on her father and mother's death had changed, readily accepting their death to be linked to the fabled Curse of the Pharaohs, but the public didn't need to know that—only her family did.
However, Evelyn had found herself frequently apologizing to Rick for leaving Alex in his care as a result of her work. Her initial intention to settle down when they had moved to England had backfired, and for the sometime, Evelyn wondered if they were better off in Egypt. Even on her digs, she was still closer to home there and had been able to spend more time with Alex.
When Evelyn arrived at the library of the Ancient Egypt and Sudan department, Evelyn glanced towards the librarian's desk, granting her a gentle nod as she was headed towards the same section she had previously went to during her last visit. That was, until she caught sight of the man near her. Despite his unkempt appearance, Evelyn felt that she had recognized him from somewhere. However, she had met quite an extensive amount of people in her lifetime, most of whom were barely noteworthy.
Walking up to him, Evelyn asked in a hushed tone, "Pardon me sir…I hate to interrupt, but do I know you from somewhere? You seem rather familiar."
