Mystery of the Cursed Pencil

Just before lockdown started, I went to see the Tutankhamun exhibition in London where I purchased a pencil for Helen. It was a good quality pencil featuring pictures of King Tut’s famous death mask. I posted it to Helen but warned there was a slight risk it could be CURSED. This was a joke. However, the pencil did not arrive suggesting it was indeed cursed.

Weeks and weeks later Helen received a torn envelope and a letter from Royal Mail BUT NO PENCIL.

Where is the cursed pencil? Was it stolen? Will the curse now transfer to the thief? It is all very mysterious.

Meanwhile, I have told Helen she must claim compensation. That pencil cost £2!!!
