Eons after the creation of the universe, and after the rise and development of innumerable species and cultures, the Great Spirit descends upon the very heart of creation, the cradle of life: Eoris. This planet bears the universe’s name and lays in the farthest reaches of the cosmos where reality turns to dream. Eoris is the birthplace of the first mortal creatures, the mecca of civilisation, and the sanctuary of the ‘Sil’, angels of creation and direct descendents of God.

A few years after her arrival, God unconsciously proclaims her wish to die, a call only her angels can sense. This event marks the beginning of a new war, one that confronts the mighty empires of the mortals that strictly oppose the destruction of the Great Spirit against the ‘Last Angels’, celestial creatures that descended from the heavens to fulfil the celestial mandate.

In this war, the nature of our devotion to God opposes our need to live.

What is more important... God or her creation?

Story #5


The empty hole in the ground now fills with rainwater as it pours from a peaceful cloud above. The boy stares at the men loading the colossal thing unto an old, rusted, bulky and roaring construction vehicle. Its engine is loud enough to force everyone into a screaming frenzy. There is no way to organize the people. Men pull unto strings but have no sense of unity or direction. The thing tips over and the vehicle is swung to a side as men fly into the air, pulled by the massive force of the crystal as it plummets down and hits the black soil with apparent malice. A man is crushed and it takes a moment to stop the machine’s engine and for the people to gather around and realise the horrible news they are to tell the village folk just that evening. Embraced and comforted on the idea of sacrifice they persist, lift the thing and push it unto the vehicle. Some men and women take the body of the dead man aside and try to accomplish the impossible. A man is dead and the thing has been lifted, a defeat and a victory in a single day. Amongst them the kid looks at both and feels no triumph. As he stares at the dead man he can hear the engine of the roaring vehicle move farther away, and with it an encased being he deems too important to simply abandon.
