Walking into the unknown

'And I am praying that you will put into action the generosity that comes from your faith as you understand and experience all the good things we have in Christ. 
Your love has given me much joy and comfort, my brother, for your kindness has often refreshed the hearts of God’s people.'

Philemon 1:6-7 NLT
Sembehun, Sierra Leone

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…

What do you think we can get from here? Said Fulrose

Well it is not, but this is exactly where I want to end all this on my own terms. It has been long and someone has to let go of the rope. Nwe admitted

So it is a trap? 

Yes …

and why didn’t you not let me in on it or Cassa? 

She looked thoughtful. Athan can read Cassa’s intentions and emotions, not sure if he can read the mind but I want her to make a choice. 

So you think she will come with him? 

Yes but it should be willing not compulsion, for him to get here and use her as the shield. I am counting on him doing that. 

Well we better get down and hide or something? 

She nodded.. thinking of the first day she had walked into the cave. 

It was not a coincidence that she had walked past and seen the place. She doesn’t believe in coincidences. She felt a pang of guilt as she had taken Nwe with her afterward to see the place, and knowing what was about to come….She could not see at the moment only the adventure and excitement. 

“About two months ago, I knew this was dangerous but never said anything when you followed. I didn’t think of asking how you felt. I wanted to see if I can learn something from them. I also wanted to find the truth at all costs, it is dangerous and you are welcome to run as far as you from this place

Are you sure? You might have seen what your mind wants you to see and also live all the fun to you….well I am here out of free will and no I did know what I was getting into. My eyes were wide open and ready to jump into the sea with you ——

I am no fool, Fulrose. She held her gaze. Yes my memory might have had a glimpse but it was not false.

Nwe frowned. Okay carry on.

Well, it will not end well. All the different scenarios did come back with the same conclusion.

Okay show me and maybe we can see a different side this time together.

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 🙂

Walking into the unknown

'And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God require of you? He requires only that you fear the Lord your God, and live in a way that pleases him, and love him and serve him with all your heart and soul. '

Deuteronomy 10:12

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…

He shook with anger as he sinks into the dark emotion and he found that he could not be bothered with it right now. Letting the cloud over his mind as he moved closer to Kaih. 

Kaih could see the dark waves around Athan as he got closer, his hands shook. Getting the location was proving to be difficult with him so close.

When he finally got to see them…. This doesn’t look right at all, he thought. They were interested in his past and what they could possibly gain by going into his home town. Alarmed bells, at the implications. They could know a little about him and bring justice to the world. 

Kaih?

Looking down to see them enter the rooms.

Yes? What is it? He asked.

Did you find out anything? I need to get going if not and I will have to also get Cassa as a shield, he taught. He knew something was not right but could not be sure. He had been here before, and he wanted to avoid getting killed before completing the mission.

As Cassa finished both daggers, she needed to get out or fight. Was it too late, she was now in the deepest pool. Looking back, if they were right then the option was not running off wondering or sinking deep into the pool. She needs to stand and fight, but can she?

The chances are he will find her or they will and the choice will be taken away, meaning they made a choice and as she waded back to reality Athan was standing in front deep in thought and in darkness. It was time to make a choice. 

Is it complete? Athan moved closer, cautious than usual. 

She could tell he was wrestling with trusting her and took the dagger and handed it over.

Athen looked it over it was surprisingly very heavy and he saw the red gems glowed in his hands.

Is it …… ah! He drew his hand away

Yes, a gift, Cassa explained

Are you in a hurry to do anything else? As he regarded her.

No! As she continued to put everything away, slipping her dagger in to avoid being seen. 

I need you to follow me, we are going on a trip. Once they get there he will have to make sure that she stays close, Athan taught. 

You don’t look pleased to hear it, he observed. 

Cassa looked at Athan, then shook her head. ‘No.’

Why not?

I…. I don’t want to part of any more killing

Athan looked puzzled. You think that is what we are going to do.

‘Yes’… 

Is this a bad thing? Athan asked, shrugging. You cannot be protected by anyone but me. You are safer with me and than when we are apart. This is what we always do together. 

As he continued with words… They invaded us and brought the storm with them. None of this will have happened.

Ah, you’ve right. Lost in thought, they made the wind blow in the wrong direction. Memories of the crushing of the storm into the land as Athen tried to stop it. But that was a version that was not true. Athan carried the storm everywhere he went. This was a way to protect himself, caution will be needed going to this battle field. She needs to be armed and ready for anything.

Should we go now… surely this was about wars of sword and gaining strength. She wanted no part of it.

Walking into the unknown

Then He said to them, 
“These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me.”
And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the scriptures. 

Luke 24:44-45

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…

Athan knew that something had happened and just did not know what. He needed to find out where they had gone before anything else happened.

Getting back to Kaih as quickly as he can, the doors open… they left before I got there.

Kaih looked away. I was planning on leaving, and my services are not free. You cannot be free to walk in and out. 

You cannot leave, and I will pay you anything you want. We need to find them and you will have to get me there before they do any damage that cannot be reversed.

I am under orders to stay away from you. Getting to the end of the room, something was not right and how can he say no to a man that kills people for even saying yes to hide himself. 

Don’t be ridiculous and who told you that?

I cannot disclose my source but you can never come back here after this. 

Athan looked at the ground, then out the window and back at Kaih. 

His eyes were hard. So what exactly did this source say?

He or she wasn’t specific. He paused. If I continue to help – if I stay around here – will you promise me that I will not be harmed?

He stared at him. He wanted to know who it was and he cannot promise anything. Loose ends was not his speciality. He just cannot walk away without the need to get rid. 

‘Of course you won’t be harmed.’

Promise me, said Kaih. Getting his book out and looking at the pictures, you must swear to the gods. I will need this in writing and if anything you will never get help from any of us in the future. 

Wanting to meet with the two ladies, he will have to find a way to get this book. It seems like he was clever after all, keeping an insurance from everyone and the last name was Amiya. He will need to get hold of it and then no one will know as he signed. 

That is just a copy, if you are thinking of taking it. As it disappears on the screen. Don’t look so shocked, I have lived for this long among you demons because that book is not visible once it is signed. 

Don’t look so shocked, you are demons if you don’t behave as humans. So for over 500 years many have tried and failed. I will help this time and I want something in return if you want to get to them, you will bring it to me soon. 

Taking something out from the drawer, see this is my price? Bring and you have a safe passage to and I cannot guarantee a safe return back but I will show you how to get back.

It is easy to find and you can get it in any of the shops so be quick while I locate them and prepare the way. 

With a dismal look, he went into the room to continue his search and a way of moving away from this place. This was going to be dangerous and he wanted no part of it, his hands were already burning and the flame was getting hot enough to crisp his fingers.

The blade on his back told him exactly what he feared would happen.

I don’t have time for games… you need to locate them now and quite frankly help from others is not my strong suit so today I take off the last one. Unless you want your blood spilled over this place you will do the job right now without any questions.

Walking into the unknown

The Lord has established His throne in heaven, 
And His kingdom rules over all

Psalm 103:19
The Shard – London, UK. Edited in Prisma app with Femme

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…

Athan entered, looking at them disappeared in the air, how could this happen? He should have guarded the place and none of this would happen. What did they say to Cassa? Caution is needed lest she is now infected before the weapon is completed. 

Men would be posted around as a precaution and also a warning he is not to be trifled with. Cassa walked in with caution, she had not expected him in this room. Maybe he knows, as he stopped cautiously waiting. 

What have you been up to today? He asked.

She shrugged, “Thought, had two of your worst enemies today. They are nice and gave me tips on how to join and betray you. 

Well I argued with myself as well as talked to myself.

Oh and who won? 

I did, I think?

Not completed yet, still debatable. 

What was the argument about? 

Who owns our body!

And what did you conclude? 

I do! I see it daily and recognise it and so do you. Therefore it is mine, I think!

Otherwise I would be dead if I was not valuable.  It is very good to recognise oneself in the mirror and stand firm to it.

He chuckled, and? 

He looked hurt, that was not what he wanted to hear. But at the moment, she didn’t care and wanted to get away. It will be over tomorrow and this will end and he will face the dance with the two ladies. He knows where the sword has taken them. He needs to find a way to get to them before they destroy everything he has worked for.

Recognising the question. I have almost completed your dagger and was taking a break. It will be completed tomorrow. She met his eyes and held them. 

He looked away, this will be harder than he thought. I have things to take care of and I will see you tomorrow.

She senses his reluctance  and his frustration and sympathises. Left with her taught and resolved, this will be the last time in this place dead or alive. She will be walking out of this place and hopefully not dead. 

What a journey?

“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.
