July Anomalies A – Z: Jeremiel

Did not the souls of the righteous in their chambers ask about these matters, saying, `How long are we to remain here? And when will come the harvest of our reward?’  And Jeremiel the archangel answered them …

Q:  How long are we to remain here?
A:  There is nowhere for you to remain. The Earth is gone from you and we are already on our way.  From earth to heavens, from the dust of the earth to the crystal sea before the throne, we proceed. 

Q:  But where are we going?
A:  To your reward, to the place that has been prepared for you since the timelessness before time, the eternal city, the endless vista of hope; we go to the presence of the One. 

Q:  Will the trip take long?
A:  Time is irrelevant.  There is only the now, for the One is with us even now. Yet you will see him soon.

Q:  But how long will it take?
A:  I have already answered that question.  For now, enjoy the visions that are being shown to you.  The waters of the heavens have been parted especially for your passage; dark waters are on the left and bright waters on the right.  Do you not see them? Are they not glorious?

Q:  I need to use the bathroom.  Can we stop?
A:  The dead have no need of such facilities.  We will continue through the heavenly ether. The hosts of heaven have assembled to light your way.  See how they shine for you?

Q:  Aaron is on my side of the seat…
A:  There is room enough for all and no need to squabble. 

Q:  He’s touching me
Q:  No, I’m not.
Q:  Yes, he is.  He is.
Q:  No, I’m not.  He’s touching me…
A:  Stop it, both of you. 

Q:  I need to go to the bathroom.  How soon till we can stop?
A: You should have gone before we left.

Q:  How much further?

Q: Are we there yet?
A:  (sigh)

This is part of July Anomalies A-Z, a creative writing exercise and not intended to be an altogether accurate picture of the creature described above.
