|Taking a walk is no fun, especially if you get lost are don't know where you are going.|
The walk was long and hasteless. I hurried, yet I slowed. I never paid attention to the surroundings as often as they changed. Walking was effortless and breathing unnecessary at this point. Colorlessness shifted in swirling nightmares, but I never noticed. I never understood the nagging sensation in the back of my mind. I was caught up between sanity and insanity, neither if which was the least bit familiar. I was vaguely aware that I was not quite on solid ground, and there was a sinking sensation in my stomach as if I were falling at a frequently speeding pace, yet I seemed not to be going either down or forward at all. This alerted a small peice of my mind and made it puzzled. I seemed to go on in this dream/reality world for hours, yet when I understood the nagging sensation I interpereted it as a distant voice not quite being accepted into this world I had created. It pulled harder and harder on the barred recesses of my mind, and I attempted to block it out of my way so my concentration would be be fully on what was happening around me even though I already knew that this attept would be useless. In the next moment a gripping facination pulled me into its depths. I was standing on a rock surrounded by four perfect circles. I couldn't quite make out the features contained in my surrounding for my vision had been blurred by the sudden fatigue on my being. After a short while of adjusting my eyes to their new home, I glanced at the four large circles around me and what was contained inside their mysterious veil. At first they tried to hide from me, playing master of disguise, but I quickly broke that shield. After they sensed I had much more power than they, they unblocked all their secrets, opened theirselves ,and I was left to explore. Though I was mentally caged and not allowed to leave my rock. I first looked out unconsciously over the circle to my left. Unconsciousness faded replaced with a recognition of this place as if I had been here before. All othe circles were blocked for sight as I stared out into the first. There was some type of odd swirling white mist that had the characteristics and effect of air. A strong breeze settled over me , and my vision blurred. The next thing I noticed was a new circle in front of me. Was this a test? I did not know. OK, well.... If this is a test, what is it for? The next pool was not swirling white mist, but was the deep blue color of the ocean. WATER!! Let's see.... Air, water- what? Okay. The same sensation of the breeze washed over me in a fluid motion and another pool appeared in front of me. Even before my vision cleared I knew what would appear in front of me. I felt extreme heat and tounges of fire dance playfully and mockingly daring me to reach out and fall within their grasp. I shield away from the flames and realize instantly what is going on, but it was to late to react. A burst of flames exploded in a rush right over me, and I was introduced to a new sight, a beautiful sight. There were perfect green blades of grass, long slender trees, and flowers of all colors. This now was Earth. Air- Water- Fire- Earth- these were all of the basic elements. These.... shaped _LIFE_. Which is what I am. _I_ am life, created by everything here. _I_ am what has been missing in this puzzle of nature for so long. But why me? Why was _me_ called here? "Because you belong- you were the Missing and now you have been Found. This is your place now. Forever shall you stay." The nag loosened its grip on me and floated far away. I rested on my rock never to return to reality again. Tweet
