They walked down the corridor and out into the street where they could see a small light floating in the distance. They walked towards a small building across the street that looked like a normal house. Elizabeth went in behind them and noticed that the room was bigger than what appeared on the outside. They walked up stairs to a room in the back where another man was waiting. Elizabeth was confused at the sight of this new person.
As the others sat at the coffee table, Elizabeth went to the window to peer outside into the darkness of the world. She could still see the light but this time with what seemed to be a river of souls separating them. One of the men from the table motioned for her to be seated.
“Time goes by slower in this world than in the real world Elizabeth,” Aien said.
Asran looked at the man across from him,” Good morning Signus. We seemed to have run into you a lot lately is everything okay?”
The man called Signus spoke with Asran for quite some time only to reveal that he had been attacked more frequently by the cutlasses. With each word he watched Elizabeth waiting to see if she was the cause of his problems.
“Why do you keep staring at me?” Elizabeth asked,” Are you a pervert or something?”
Signus looked at her in disdain,” Lady, I would never. It’s just this house was never meant for an angelic spirit as you. You are different from the rest of us here that is all.”
“I was told that there are rules to be followed here,” Elizabeth said,” so I am only here because of my friends.”
“She doesn’t know yet Signus,” Asran said as he stood up.
“In this world there are two different types of beings: one is the demonic beings such as us, the other is the angelic being which you are. The strengths you bear are on par with some of our higher members, but you have not fully awakened to your sleeper self,” Asran lectured,” To become awakened you must first find an item of value in your life to act as a link to this world. That item will act as a spirit holder as your abilities mature.”
Aien continued for Asran,” The item not only acts as a holder and passageway but it is considered your weapon. To use a weapon you must be familiar with it, this is why it has to have value in your life.”
“In this world there is one place you must never go. That river you were looking at earlier is what I am referring to. It is called Styx, and it is the place where hell begins and heaven ends. The demons can’t even go across the river of Styx, only the departed souls of dreams may cross only to be eaten by Cerberus,” Signus proclaimed.
Elizabeth looked back at the window and then to her charm she wore on here hand. The others looked on at her hoping she was listening to what they had said. She looked at Aien with intimacy before she responded to them, but she had no idea what she really had done.
“How do I go about making this link with my item?” she questioned.
“Aien take her into the room across the hall,” Asran stated,” There you will find everything you will need to bless the object she chose.”
Aien stuttered,” Y-yes Asran, I will do that right away.”
They left to the other room alone to complete the process the Elizabeth had started. They walked in to find that there were angelic blessing tools. There was a Bible opened on a pedestal flipped opened to Colossians chapter one, and holy water for cleansing the item of impure emotions. Elizabeth walked over to the Bible as Aien went for the holy water.
“Let me have the item you chose Elizabeth,” Aien said.
“Oh yes, here you go,” Elizabeth stated with excitement,” It’s the charm that looks like the feather you gave me last year.”
Aien stared at the feather charm that was on the bracelet, and remembered the day he gave her that feather.
It was a snowy winter night after her birthday party on the twenty-seventh of December; they had gone outside to get some fire wood for the cabin they were staying at when he gave it to her. He had even asked her if one day they would be together like they were tonight.
“That was a beautiful night to remember Elizabeth,” Aien said as he washed it clean,” The charm has been cleaned of impurities.”
He brought it over to her for them to ask a blessing upon it just as they had done with all the other items. Elizabeth was given the task of quoting the verse that had been prepared for the item. She read the tenth through the fourteenth verse of first Colossians.
“Elizabeth, in the meeting I thought that I heard you say that you were only doing this because I was here with you,”Aien started,” This isn’t something you should do only for yourself but for others as well.”
Elizabeth looked at him,” I want to be with you Aien just like you wanted to be with me on that cold winter night at the cabin. I will do what I have to for the others, but as long as you and I are together we should be happy.”
Aien stopped talking for a moment to take in what she had just said,” I would love for us to be together, but this world may not be as nice as you think it is.”
“I wished that you and I would see the same light and apparently we can. It just seems odd for us to hide our feelings from one another,” she said with passion,” We already shared a similar thought together and I don’t know how.”
Aien looked at her,” It was your thought and voice I heard so maybe your abilities are already maturing. In this world, Angelic beings were always known to be powerful in information and healing any way.”
Asran walked through the door as the conversation began to escalate into a more dramatic moment. He came bearing bad news for the group.
“It’s time to start heading back to our exit you two,” Asran said patiently,” we only have twenty minutes left to get back.”
“Already,” Elizabeth complained,” It doesn’t even feel like we’ve been here ten minutes.”
“That’s because we haven’t been gone ten minutes in the real world,” Aien stated,” However we must be going.”
They walked back to the corridor they had come from in the beginning. There was what seemed to be a portal where they first came in at that was getting smaller as the time passed away. They walked through the portal with Elizabeth in the middle of the two men.
“It’s always rough going back for the first time Elizabeth so go to the nurse when you get back if you don’t feel good,” Aien said.
Elizabeth stepped through the portal back to the real world for the first time.
