“It’s time to choose.”
“I like it here. It’s peaceful.”
“Yea. And safe.”
Schizophrenic dust devils scattered millennial dust and debris in no particular direction; a pointless tantrum of excess energy.
“The winds look desperately frenetic.”
“They are insatiable.”
Perhaps on cue, a snowy capped wave leaped at my chest, nearly toppling me into the deep had my Master’s hand not steadied my stance. We pressed onward still, toward the distant shore.
“If I go, will I succeed?
“You may. You may not. It is not for me to say.”
“But there will be others?”
“Most certainly. You know that.”
“If I don’t go, the plan will succeed anyway, right?”
“His will be done.”
“Then I could stay and everything would be OK, right?”
“You could stay.”
“And my friends and those I will know?”
“Time will tell, but there are no guarantees even if you do go.”
The final rays of the sun scoured the boney mountain peaks ahead even as a chill sea breeze moistly nudged my shoulder blades.
“I’ve got to go.”
“Walking with me.”
“Thank you for walking with me. See you soon.”
