Doors to Eden
Magpie Tale # 25
"Then the light shall go out at the second siren...and the chosen shall find a new home."
The Book of Light
She rushed from door to door. She had exactly four minutes to find the right one. There were 634 doors left.
Suddenly - the perfect match. The doorknob and keyhole clicked and slid into position. Light emanated from the keyhole and then went dark. A key from within was inserted. The doorknob slowly turned.
The door opened and she held her breath. The brilliance was almost blinding. In that split second, she took the purest of breath deep into her lungs. The essence of virgin forest and deep oceans enveloped her. The air felt strangely alive. ‘Quick, my child,’ the Reverand Mother said, ‘Come in before the Lightseekers find you gone. Wait! Take the keyhole with you.’
Iman will be the last of the disciples to enter the lost Eden. As she closed the door behind her, she heard the sound of the second siren in the distance. The threshold of the 3D world collapsed. And all that was left outside the doors was emptiness.
Not even stars glittered in the void and black space.
