Realization: But I was outside of it, standing in the hall of my temple, but I could feel it-- No, I could hear it.
Understanding: I knew it was time. My time to face the light, embrace control, and wake up.
Action: I moved quickly and reached the tomb; I laid my scepter onto the side, my whip on a table next to it.
Action: I opened it. I entered it as the white light covered my body. I laid down, and as the tomb closed itself, so did my eyes.
Smell: a familiar smell surrounded me--it took me but a minute and I knew. I had arrived safe and sound.
Touch: soft sheets and blankets in between my legs and fingers-- soft.
Sight: I opened my eyes and there she stood, above me, looking down, wearing that unmistakable smile. My Sekhmet. My beautiful lioness goddess. Her hair falling to the sides--I could almost touch it.
Touch: But she beat me to it, she moved in closer and our lips touched. In that moment, I was at peace. Calm all around me. I had arrived safe and sound.
Touch: I held her close to me, I did not want to let go. I wanted to hold her forever. But eternity only works in the Aether--where time is not something that exists. Because everything around you lives on forever. No end in sight.
Voice: "Do you want coffee?"
Realization: There. That's it. My perfect morning. What more could I ask for?
Voice: "Cream and sugar?"
Reply: "Yes please."
Realization: Although what I really wanted to say was, "Stay. Just one more second."
I spent eternity in a tomb,
woken suddenly as if I had just left the womb,
there was something I could not see,
but knowing it was you behind the veil is what set me free.
I was told to meet The God Sun Ra in the Library,
I needed to provide clarity,
for my brother did not know of what he was doing,
just wanted to have fun, didn't know what was brewing.
But when his walls outside crumbled,
the Library inside tumbled,
and as a fellow Guardian I am to watch over our brothers,
we are all eventually made of the same colors.
I was told to watch over him until freedom was an option again,
and then we will be together to reign.
"You will see her soon,"
"Do you promise?"
"Have I ever been dishonest?"
"Never; please tell her I will be seeing her soon."
"Of course, Seker. Let's meet upon the next full moon."
Promise: And so I made an oath to guard each temple and sibling, to find the other Guardians and made sure they followed. With hopes I'd see her again I returned to my task, and then came the day I'd have a perfect morning at last.
