The war had just ended and I was completely devastated. Two entire battalions had been exploded in the most vicious black mechanics I had ever seen. Nearby Suns and Stars were ticking time bombs waiting to wreak havoc. Intuitive battleships were caught off-guard and absolutely pulverized. The only two survivors out of 12,000 were myself and another half dead Royal who ascended into the 5th before the explosions erupted. In the 5th dimension we could feel every single being who died. Thousands suddenly moving through sheer terror and pain had created for a tidal wave of black energy torturing our minds from all directions. Our bodies were burnt out, black poison was seeping through our veins– unrelenting and dangerously ignoring our auto-immune system.
I managed to drag the other Royal’s body onto a cargo ship floating in deep space, it was still mostly intact. Hours upon hours of life altering healing later, I managed to stop the spread of poison and stabilize his condition. I was sitting in an empty cargo hold watching the Stars in the distance as we passed them by. Light was shining through the glass and illuminating the entire room before gently fading back into the darkness. I had never felt so much loss in my life. I could feel them all, alive within my consciousness, suddenly exposed to the afterlife without thought or memory as to what happened.
As the ship passed by another star, light filled the interior of the room in a bright display and I closed my eyes. That’s when I saw it. A Being so large it’s golden eyes were bigger than galaxies, it said to me in a deep rumbling voice “When will you learn that Death is just an illusion to enforce the idea of separation… There was a time when war did not mean anything beyond the occupation of time. Why do you insist on going to war?”.
I took a deep breath in, and then grinned; sharp teeth smiling in the illumination of light. I said “Because it sure as Hell beats sitting around, waiting for nothing to happen”.
