After a long march they arrive at the foot of a cliff, topped by an ornate fortress. It is the palace of She, Who Must Be Obeyed. The entrance is via a tunnel at the base of the cliff, and Horace and Leo are led, blindfolded, through a passage of caves. After many intricate turns, they halt, and the blindfolds are removed. A white-robed band of soldiers has now joined the Amahagger spearmen, and these Palace Guards now usher Horace and Leo into the presence of She.

Leo is wearing a scarab ring, and has malaria, and in some fevered delusion, he snatches off his ring and dashes it to the ground; Horace observes this and deftly retrieves the ring, and slides it onto his own finger. Nobody else observes this. Chief Billali then conducts Holly into the throne room. She, herself, steps from behind an ornate curtain, and is very attractive. She scolds Billali for the cruel death suffered by Mahomed, and sends him scurrying from the room. She and Horace are alone. She claims to be over two thousand years old, and She has a wide range of knowledge. How? In her chamber, She has a shining pan of water, in which she can discern the future and the past. In the pan, Horace observes himself and his companions, months earlier, organizing their expedition. Horace falls completely under She's spell, quite literally, as she unveils her face and momentarily blinds him with her blazing irradiance. But a second later she is ablaze with fury, when she lays her eyes on the scarab ring, that Horace had taken from Leo. She accusingly points a finger at him, demanding to know where he got the ring, but Horace is paralyzed and cannot even speak.
