For I considered all this in my heart, so that I could declare it all: that the righteous and the wise and their works are in the hand of God. People know neither love nor hatred by anything they see before them. All things come alike to all: One event happens to the righteous and the wicked; To the good, the clean, and the unclean; To him who sacrifices and him who does not sacrifice. As is the good, so is the sinner; He who takes an oath as he who fears an oath. Ecclesiastes 9:1-2
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…
The sound of water dripping from a tap echoed down the passage, followed by a grasp of pain.
This was not usual as Fulrose gazed at Nwe in alarm. Nwe frowned as the dripping was now a distant sound. Looking ahead at the doorway ahead. Taking a long deep breath, she grasped the handle as the door opened slowly, creaking loudly to wake the dead.
She glanced at Nwe and grinned. Relieved no one insight to see them, and now more curious than scared, Nwe strode forward and looked inside.
Three figures were frozen in position, recognising Athen was holding the dagger glowing brighter than normal, his expression changed from surprise to anger. With a swift movement, Cassa struggled to breath with the dagger held to her throat. Athen’s eyes flickered as they moved closer.
Don’t step any closer or she dies!
Frozen at the intensity in his voice. Nwe considered… what if…? Don’t do anything stupid
He will kill her if we step any closer. Okay …
Drop the sword and step back!
Do you think I am going to let you get away with this, said Nwe
Well you have a choice, moving closer. Carefully laying down the sword and moving back. As Cassa dropped to the floor.
Okay, did you see the whole thing? Said Nwe.
Well this is a lot to carry around and how long has this vision been playing in your head?
As both Cassa and Athen appeared and enter the house. Is this your memory asked Folrose.
No this is not, they are wearing different clothes and also Athen is at the back this time.
Well we have an advantage… You have the sword and they both have the daggers. You now know the house from all your visions.
Yes, you are right. I did see a back door and I suggest we use that. He will be expecting us through the door.
Yes! He does. But….
Close the door behind you, as Cassa entered. Athen hurried away.
As the door shut, looking around, Cassa took it all in, open space, to the left was an empty shelf and out of character with the room. Something odd about this room as she lost sight of Athen. Why this house, this room, the empty space is perfect to dance in.
A sound as she looked up…

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 🙂
