It had been a long perilous journey and the end was now in sight.
They had been promised sanctuary and needed rest more than anything else.
The precious burden of life they carried was worth the sacrifices of leaving behind friends and family. Chosen for their age and innocence, they alone held the key to the future, and this was the only place where it could be fulfilled, only here could the new life force flourish.
The steps were endless, their bones weary and heavy, but they trudged onwards and forever up. The clouds embraced them, swallowing them from sight, trees bowing their branches as if in homage. The air was clean and they breathed in the coolness. The mountains and waterfalls waited in anticipation.
Looking up, they saw Him.
Dressed head to foot in grey, he glided down to meet them, his arms raised in greeting.
Taking the glowing orb from them with great respect and dignity, he said simply
‘It’s time to Begin Again. We’ve been waiting for you.’
