The Halo Breed…
THE HALO BREED
HELL IN HADES
The celestial palace called Rest was so unbelievably comfortable for Sena that for a wild moment he felt like spending an eternity there!
The moment he slipped through the gigantic golden gate, and glided into the palace, he began to notice his spiritual soul. Hands, feet, belly, and even saw himself reflected fully on the shiny golden surface of one of the shining walls!
He heard soothing, serene music, and experienced such surrealistic bouts of happiness that he just floated through the halls, the rooms and the gardens. He saw plants and flowers he had never seen before, and witnessed finesse and beautiful creation which were absent on earth.
The Halo Breed knew he was supposed to rest and learn how to grasp physical objects, but his happiness was such that he just floated around lost in blissful allure.
He was happy, and it was the best moment of his life!
Finally, after what seemed like an eternity, he heard a grating sound that rose in a crescendo, disrupting the serene rhythmic air of Rest!
He was floating in the garden, and the sound seemed to be coming from beneath him!
Sena scowled with unhappiness!
He was comfortable here, and wanted to remain like that for eternity!
What then was disrupting his happiness this brutally?
The ground – if indeed it was the ground – began to shake alarmingly.
It was really frightening, but he remained calm as he hovered above the ground.
Suddenly, a huge door slammed through the ground and extended into the sky above him. It was not a broad door; it was quite narrow, just enough for him to squeeze through if he wanted to go through it!
There was fire burning all around it, and as Sena starred with growing trepidation, the top of the door began to descend very slowly, inch by inch, and what Sena saw and heard behind the door frightened him.
The place beyond, as it was revealed inch by inch, was a burning inferno so vast and so deep that it shook him badly!
It was like an unending burning abyss!
And deep from its core were millions of souls screaming and wailing in agony! The heat was so fierce, so terrible, that he could feel it even where he was hovering, and in his spiritual form!
This was the heart of Hades!
And it was no place for any soul!
He knew he was supposed to go in there, just as Gabriel had told him.
But the truth of it was that suddenly, without the protection of his physical body, he felt terror creeping through his soul!
Hades was a fractious place!
Slowly the centre of the door wound down until it was completely down, revealing that alarming, disturbing, scary place called Hades.
Sena floated towards the entrance of the door slowly, very slowly!
He could feel the blast of heat, a scorching pain that made him grimace with horror! This was the exact opposite of Rest, which filled him with happiness.
He stopped at the entrance and looked at that sea of blazing fire and those awful screams from tortured souls deep down in the abyss!
Then he noticed that the central portion of the doorway was making its way slowly up again! Its ascent was very slow, far slower than its descent, but it was ascending anyway!
Sena quivered with terror!
“This is scary!” he shouted fiercely, looking into the open sky above him. “It is not meant for souls like me! What if I don’t make it back? What if I become trapped in there?”
His voice reverberated around Rest.
“Answer me!” he screamed, and the echo came back to his ears, me, me, me, me!
With a sinking feeling he knew there was not going to be any answer!
This was the final test that he needed to take, on his own. He could decide to go through the doorway to Hades, or he could choose to stay right at Rest and wait for the door to close once again!
And he also knew that all that he had gone through, all the suffering, and all the pains would be useless if he stayed at Rest. Maybe a bigger calamity might befall him if he failed this final step.
This was why he had been born, and torn from his parents, and trained in the Underworld for eighteen years! If he failed to move in, the sacrifices of his parents, especially his father, and the Spirits would all be for nothing.
“What will be, will be!” he whispered, and glided through the entrance into Hades!
