“Walking into the unknown”

To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and be silent 
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever

Psalms 30:12
Bermondsey, London. You could usually see Tower Bridge down the stairs- high tide 06 Sep 21

Life in the Unknown world continues… Welcome to the world of walking into unknown places and life is no different. Yet we seem to be surprised at what lies ahead.

What is happening now has happened before.

Nothing is new under the sun.

The story continues…

She found herself standing in an alleyway, with no one in sight. The floor was uneven as she got closer to the light not knowing what happened to the people she followed or where she was. She was not concerned, don’t be ridiculous! 

Her inner voice spoke. We are in a different land, no bag for the day and who knows what we will face. Also we need to get out of this royal clothes draped around you. You need to start dressing normally and this colour is inconspicuous. 

She had always hated it, she was never hidden and from a mile she can be found. Purpose was that she could be spotted, vowing to take away that rule when she ruled.

She has now abandoned her responsibilities and needed to start a new life and that includes these clothes. 

She will also need to put those fighting skills to use.

She had always questioned why she needed to train, you never know when you will need to use the skill, her wise grandpa said. Now looking at these men as they got close, she is glad she did listen and obey.

She stared at them, did she really fear the unknown that much?

Of Course they will not harm me, they don’t even know me. How naive!

What have we here? Little princess and in the alleyway. Did you miss the ship or are you lost?

The laughter echoed far as she moved further into the back. 

Now it was their turn to stare back at her. Slowly the leader’s face relaxed and he smiled without reaching his eyes.

I can’t believe we found one of them, as he continued. She still did not understand those comments. What was meant by one of them? 

She let out a quick breath of exasperation. I can’t believe we are in the cave, said Fulrose. As the memories fade away. 

Nwe nodded. Yes, of course. I didn’t know you are a princess? 

Fulrose hid a smile. Nothing gets past you and that sword of yours. Here I thought I was having a private memory of what was lost and can never be found.

Nwe met her eyes and a faint smile curled her lips. I am glad you did. It is better for our friendship to know you and I hope we can find your home and visit them one day if you want. 

Fulrose nodded, maybe we will. Thank you. 

They moved to the end of the tunnel leading into the room, holding unto the sword they leaped into the air.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I seem to like the short story in the moment 🙂

This is a journal of imaginative mind, fiction and also not much editing letting the words flow. Come back next week to see what happens. For as humans we need to be creative, use imagination and be the best version of ourself. Just like our Father wants us to be.

Who knows the mind of a human, only God!

I do love the Lord and I love that you took the time to read my blog. Bless you.

Have a wonderful day 🙂
