“Come, with me,” says a voice and I float after it.
Lost. My identity lost. My body lost but I know I’m still there in some form of existence.
I’m swimming through a void of memories and dark and bright pathways. I face darkness first and then the bright white light of eternity engulfs me.
All of a sudden – a last memory – a distorted smile trying to pull me back. I try to wipe this memory clean and see… a man. A Face…young, hair… black, eyes…sparkling. It looked familiar. A view from distance helps me to see another face…a woman, young, black curly hair, eyes light brown. She was smiling and had something in her hand.
“Who is this?” The existence asked the voice.
The voice, “Don’t you remember. It’s you.”
“Which one – the man or the woman,” asked the confused existence?
The voice said, “The woman… of course. Now let’s hurry, we are getting late and the portal will close soon.”
The existence started following the voice without any choice.
“Wait! Wait.” She shouted and said, “I remembered that moment. Keith…I think. Yes! That was his name. He had proposed to me. My ring. I can now see in that moment much clearly.”
Good! Now let’s go.
Wait, why is everything getting grey? Why is it so bright, now? I can’t see anything from that moment. Please! Please, make it stop.
“I’m sorry I can’t”, said the voice with some softness in it. He continued, “However, if you want I can let only one thing remain for eternity in your memory – in the same form as it was real. Fast. Time is running out of your hands and mine as well.”
Fine! Don’t shout. I choose my hair…no, wait I choose him…no, no. I choose my brown eyes…no.
Wait…wait, wait. I choose…that ring…the golden ring. With his name inscribed and our promise of love. I ask you to let the golden ring never be black or grey or white. Never be lost in time and space.Let its golden glow be forever. Let it shine like a sun… forever.
