It was a very hot summer morning but inside the Pyramid( 金字塔 ) it was quite cool. Tom and his classmates had just walked into the Pyramid and were very surprised to see what it was like. They went to the Queen’s Room. They saw a passage ( 通道 ). At the end of it there was a small room. They were told that they couldn’t go into that room, because it was newly found. Tom looked towards the passage. Two of his friends Jason and Peter saw him and said “Don’t get into trouble, Tom!”.
As soon as nobody was looking, Tom went up the dark passage, opened the door and walked in. Suddenly the door closed behind him. The room was very dark, but luckily Tom had brought a torch ( 手电筒 ) with him. When he turned it on, he saw two white faces in front of him. “Oh, no!” he cried and ran to the door. He quickly opened it and went down the passage to the Queen’s Room as fast as he could.

Sometimes people did not remember the space. It was hard to see and to read. Later people used a dot( 点 ) to hold the space. Six hundred and three looked like this 6·3. But the dot was hard to see.So people put a circle around it like this 6 ⊙ 3. Then people could see the dot. They remembered the space.
