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.

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

'Jesus said to them, 
“My food is to do the will of him who sent me, 
and to accomplish his work. '

John 4:34 WEB

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…


Standing and looking at Athen, Cassa was troubled at the sight of the place and he was clearly looking for the thing that could be damaging to him. 

Why are we here? Better yet, why am I here? 

Athen turned to look at her, surprised that she had broken the silence. He watched her a while and went back to looking. He needed the totem he had carried with him for generations and now this could destroy his future. 

I still can’t tell you the reason but I understand why you want to leave and put distance between us. You have seen nothing but death and darkness and the time has come that the darkness might engulf you and you never see light again. He looked at her. I cannot guarantee anything.

She nodded.

When did you change your mind from us to you?

She felt a pang of guilt. About four months ago… Amiya asked me to come with her into the new city she was going to build. I didn’t want to go at the time but I thought I would learn how to use magic to create better weapons. She took me to mastery marksman who taught me in creating the gems into poisons to attack the artery straight to the heart within a second. 

And.. 

He frowned, ‘go on’

Well you killed her and the plan failed and here we are. So what am I doing at this god forsaken dumpster?

Over the years I have acquired different skills and this totem contains the lives that matter to me. If anyone gets a hold of it. 

But… How could you do such things? Athen

It was not an easy choice at the time. I knew it was terrible and a great risk. I would be destroyed and probably die anyway. I chose this at the time and it is great evil. She didn’t want to be around when the girls arrive.

So all the lives are in the totem? 

No, they are not… 

He is right, it contains his last life on this planet and once it is broken he can actually die. Said Fulrose as she entered the room. It will be a fair fight between us and him. 

Athen snorted at Fulrose’s comment. ‘You lie well’ 

Do we? Should we break it right now and test it out? As Nwe entered with what looks like a brown wooden bear totem. 

Not sure what it does anyway? 

Cassa looked at Athen and could tell that this was not good. He looked pale and he is on his own. 

Thanks Cassa, as Nwe handed her the totem. She had given them the clue as this was what Amiya was going to do before he killed her. With guilt, she moved to other side of the room giving no eye contact.

What was it that motivated you to kill all my friends with such devotion? Cassa asked

Me devoted? He almost laughed out loud. Well you think you have it all figured out. Why don’t you tell me what motivated me? 

Suddenly she was afraid, looking at the totem that doesn’t belong to this world. What if this was something more? What if she met his gaze and he compelled her to do something she didn’t want to do. 

A murmuring from the other two saved her. She looked at them and could gain the strength to put it away.

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.

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.
