Walking into the unknown

'The Lord is gracious and righteous; 
our God is full of compassion. 
The Lord protects the unwary; 
when I was brought low, he saved me. '

Psalms 116:5-6
Bermondsey, London

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 wind echoed in the distance, he had decided to make the attack. Something he never planned for, or at any rate planned well. The sound was deafening, looking at all three. 

I think it’s time you move on. 

Athen lifted an eyebrow as Nwe drew closer, making sure that his words echoed into the night.

I came out to have the sword and to take control of this world. This killing is hardly my cup of tea, and to tell you the truth it would have happened later. 

But don’t worry, I will make sure the same fate meets you. 

Moving closer he removed the dagger as the shield surrounded them. 

Nwe moved in closer trying to close the gap to get to him, and the world was dark and she could smell dead as the gap closed in. coming up from below, cassa tore at his shoulder, Fulrose at his side and then there was nothing.

Nwe could see dimly in the dark and Fulrose was lying, taking her few breaths. Blinking hard, she reached out and found her hands. She took her last breath and disappeared. 

Holding on to the dagger she staggered almost fell but still had her balance.

The war was still going on, he had vanished and Fulrose was now dead. Cassa was worn out and almost collapsed back on the floor, as she caught her. The shield had cost a lot of energy.

All right, he will die first, as she wanted, her mind said, refusing to allow pain. 

A shadow came over them, and Cassa ducked as his arms reached out missing. Nwe reached over her head and pierced the sword and it hit him somewhere. Then there was a movement as he regained his energy, panting and reaching out but could not grasp anything. 

Athen moved blindly as they danced around, blood trickling down his side as they danced. The sound of  wind echoed into the night as death stood watch. She tore at his shoulder, his side and then Cassa moved closer and pierced his back.

Then there was nothing at all… 

Dropping the sword as the light shined, she realised Athen was down, was dead and there was no more dance to be done. 

She almost collapsed on the floor as Cassa caught her.

Hell is loose now, let us get out of here 

All right, Nwe thought if this is the way it should be then let us 

The adventure will continue next year into another unknown…. Happy Holidays and hope you enjoy the season with your family

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

I taught it good to declare the signs and wonders
that the Most High God has worked for me.
How great are His signs,
And how mighty His wonders!
His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
And His dominion is from generation to generation

Daniel 4:2-3 NKJV

Season's Greeting 

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…

Centering her mind, she let go and let the wave of unconsciousness filled her entire body. She saw his hand relax and with slow movement she was on the floor. She needed this to be the last time as the wave of heat left her body. 

Regaining her composition, she centered her mind to a conscious state as he moved to the far left. 

What was her plan? As her body starts to receive the heat and movement in hands and feet. 

She could hear movement downstairs and knew she needed to keep him busy if they were to defeat both of them. Where was he? 

Fluttering her eyes, to a dark cloud covering everything. Her heart skipped a beat then began to pound. How did you know?

Welcome back, sleeping beauty! I have my ways and  I needed you gone a little bit while I got everything ready, in the blink of an eye the room changed. 

She glanced at his hands. 

He frowned, as he remembered. With this Totem we will be able to do so much…

If you had said yes, then you would be part of this…

 As Fulrose entered with Nwe

Hey! Said Nwe guess we both fall into the trap

Figure that. Well what can we say?

You can say we will find a way!

You have the sword? 

Yes, but for how long? What is this place? 

This is Fulrose’s hometown, she killed an entire generation when she followed Athen in the tunnel. Trying to recreate the place requires the Totem and you. 

Sorry! you are part of the plan. 

Thank you, but I doubt that is all they need. 

Shifting her gaze back in the direction outside where both had disappeared. You are right, but we need to find a way out. 

What do you suggest? 

Help me up and it will be a while before they get back so we can find a way out of this. This is a land that cannot be recreated 

As they stepped out into the darkness…

What can she do? Searching for clues to get out of this place. Because Athen thinks she is the answer he needed. Because Fulrose has some crazy notion that she can recreate this place. Because they were both crazy. 

Nwe sighed. What did she do to deserve this much attention to herself? 

Cassa gave a low laugh. From what I know so far about Athen, she is not the first. She will not be the last. 

They reached the end leading into a tunnel.

Walking into the unknown

' But you must seek only the place he chooses 
from all your tribes to establish 
his name as his place of residence, 
and you must go there. '

Deuteronomy 12:5 NET


As deep as the ocean our Lord is greater
And He does wondrous things 
He is the only God 
No good thing will he withhold
For those who walk uprightly
RHS Garden Wisley

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…

Cassa closed her eyes. 

As the thought sent triple fear through her mind to her spine causing her to stand. Slowly moving towards the window she closed her eyes and quickly pushed it aside.

She has no idea how long they have been in the room for as nothing indicates time, but it seems like it was darker than when they entered the house. 

The dark red moon stood out in the black sky, indicating a cry for help and danger on the way. As upcoming thoughts try to filter it way through she pushes aside.

Looking around the room, Nwe seemed deep in thought with the sword. She had saved her life and now .. taking a deep breath she sent the memory away.

Obviously she was wrong to send it away, so  it could be used later as she sat again. 

You have to move again from here said Nwe 

Deep in thought she indicated a corner of the room with shadows covering the floor.

But I have not done anything..

Perhaps not, but I need you in the shadows before we face him. 

As Nwe moved into the outer room leading to the outside, Fulrose followed closely. Stepping outside the house into the courtyard. 

What do you hope to gain from walking out of here? Asked Fulrose

Nothing but a clear head. Reaching out for the sword as the air changed. She felt them coming. A man and woman had entered the courtyard  and were walking toward them.  She looked up and sucked in breath. Her eyes could see at least two more were up on the trees ahead. 

She caught her breath in disbelief as five more appeared. 

Vibrations rang through the sword as it glows familiar black. Fulrose you need to get away from here and get Cassa. 

No, staring into her eyes intently. 

Slowing her breathing, she closed her eyes. It was no use arguing. 

Fulrose moved and jumped in the air landing on the tree above housing the others. 

All heads immediately turned to face her. She felt the presence of Cassa in her mind as she became one with the sword. She was at least safe…

Drawing the power of the sword, she began to shape the air in a circle. It seems very eager to obey her. Running away from the house, she came to a halt. Turning around she lept and caught the tree with her fingers. Two men came at her with a grasp she hauled herself towards them letting the sword move. Twisting around allowing the men to surround her, looking back and forth. They started to walk towards her and as they moved close steam billowed from the air filling the space. 

They cannot see me! She felt the energy and strength. I can move in the dark. 

With one accord, she moved in and stabbed one after the other moving within the shadow until it was all done as the mist moved and became clear. 

As fulrose came into sight.. That was exerting! 

Walking in, thank you for the mist. Don’t’ know what youre talking about said Cassa

Walking into the unknown

' Do you not know? Do you not hear? 
Has it not been told to you since the very beginning? 
Have you not understood from the time the earth’s foundations were made? 
He is the one who sits on the earth’s horizon; its inhabitants are like grasshoppers before him. 
He is the one who stretches out the sky like a thin curtain, and spreads it out like a pitched tent. 
He is the one who reduces rulers to nothing; he makes the earth’s leaders insignificant. 

“To whom can you compare me? Whom do I resemble?” says the Holy One. 
Look up at the sky! Who created all these heavenly lights? 
He is the one who leads out their ranks; he calls them all by name. 
Because of his absolute power and awesome strength, not one of them is missing.'

Isaiah 40:21-23,25-26

Yes the Lord is Incomparable to anything we can imagine
Take time to look around and give God glory 
No one can ever compare to our God
to Father and Saviour of our Lord Jesus

I thank my God that He took time to create us 
He took time to renew our minds 
He took time to give us a new life
Above all we have an ethernal life 
In Christ Jesus
He is good

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…

Cassa’s stomach clenched with anxiety as she watched the totem move towards Athan slowly. She glanced at Nwe and Folrose in an effort to draw attention but only she can see the movement and the battle going on between herself and the totem. 

She directed all her attention to the totem moving it in a sixty degree angle. Athan eyed her, and her effort to move it further towards herself. 

Don’t you dare try anything, she taught as she looked at him. I might not have any experience or an assistant but I can assure you that I am a quick learner and willing to do anything. And I cannot lose this to you right now.

After the winding of  the waves from one angle to another, the tide turns suddenly as it moves into her hands. With relief as she clutched hold moving slowly to the others. As Athen disappeared into the darkness leaving them bewildered at the turn of events.

In an attempt to follow, Nwe disappeared into the darkness followed by Folrose. As they got close to the darkness and it swallowed him. 

Do you know where he is gone? Asked Folrose. 

I can only guess the underground we are building together. Did you see that totem was fighting to return to the owner? As Cassa whispered. I bet we can find him by allowing it to lead us to him.

That will be dangerous and also a trap as Nwe took hold of the totem. Anything belonging to him is not to be trusted. 

Well what do you suggest? We wait until he comes back?

Cassa shrugged, he is not coming back and I get the feeling that we are not going to have it easy either or like it whatever he gets up to. Now before we head out in search of him, I suggest we all take a rest and prepare for tomorrow. We will need all the strength. 

As she strode back to the place they came from, grabbing the totem, Nwe watched her closely. There was sureness in her stride and she also shows no signs of fear or anxiety seen earlier. 

Cassa collapsed on the sofa at the very end of the room overlooking the windows. She needs to regroup in her mind, the recent movement of energy to have control of the totem has taxed her and left her drained. Nwe sat next to her and as Folrose looked around the room. 

With her eyes closed, taken into another realm. As Amiya appeared, you have to leave right now. A striked flashed as she got closer and a shield was raised up. What is this? 

An ambush, as Nwe stepped out of the shadows. Cassa turned around full circle seeing the shield surrounding them.

See I knew you will try to come in the shadows of her mind. As the images shifted from Amiya to Athen and back again. 

Athen! The images stopped changing and she stared in horror at the error she could have made a minute ago.

Walking into Unknown

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…
