The sun comes down quickly and the clearing is illuminated by fluorescent plants and pine cones on the ground and in the trees. The small pond where the statue stands begins to drain down revealing stairs that descend to a stone archway. Fireflies begin fluttering around you as you move towards the stairs. The girl has returned to her statue form and is posed with her hands clenched under her chin smiling widely. You start down the stairs and cannot see within. As you pass through the opening you begin to see ornate braziers light up along the walls of the corridor and also brilliant wallpaper. You now hear a hum of music in the distance and your pace quickens. Through the passage you see statues and you count them. One, An older man with his hands on his hips, laughing and wearing common clothes. Two, A mother, smiling gently with tears in her eyes wearing a lovely dress and jewelry. Three, A man and women embraced. Wearing simple cloths staring deeply in
to each others eyes. Four, A very old women sitting in a chair inlaid with golden feathers. Eyes closed, hands resting in her lap. Five, a very old man across the room from the old women reaching out to her, smiling with his hand to his chest wearing a military uniform. Six, An older women with a serious expression on her face, wearing a common dress staring rigidly down the hall. Seven, a beautiful young women, holding a pregnant belly and wearing a beautiful dress. Eyes fixated on her stomach. Eight, A young man standing proudly looking down the hall wearing beautiful cloths and smiling wide. Nine, a royal crib carved from stone and inlaid with gems. Suspended by golden threads hanging from the ceiling. Finally you arrive at a door made from a dark metal. As you turn the golden handle you feel an airlock start to break and suction in the the room releases. All light is extinguished and you’re sucked through the opening. You float in darkness waiting for anything. When you open
your eyes you’re floating in a spherical room where every inch of the wall is bookshelves containing numbered encyclopedia titled “One life” A spherical fireplace sits, suspended in the center of the room and within it you can see a golden orb. A voice speaks in your head. “Fear not for the things you may never know, for there are endless books waiting to be written by your mind. Your heart will seek to spark an endless fire and should you let it, you will surely succeed.” As the voice finishes in your head it echoes throughout the room you are in several times. You make the decision to not open any books. You close your eyes and breathe a sigh of relief. “You have to have faith in the entity that made me, surely a creature of infinite wisdom and unlimited ability has created this with a beautiful concept. Everything being equally relevant to everything else. It is my pleasure to pay attention and not let the efforts be wasted.”
