    Crow and I find ourselves in some sort of temple.
    It seems like the room we're in was entirely carved out of some kind of bright stone.
    Even though everything looks very clean, it has a neglected feel to it.
    Nobody has stepped foot here for a very long time.
    Some plants appear to have made the rather futile attempt of growing on the walls.
    They were doomed from the beginning though. There is no soil here, no himidity...
    Makes you wonder how they got here in the first place.

    "Nobody home."



    I walk around a little to get a better feel for the place we've found ourselves in.
    It seems like this is a single room without any doors or windows.
    It is huge though. The ceiling must be at least 20 meters high.
    The walls and the floor are engraved with all sorts of things, reaching from long forgotten animals to oddly shaped symbols that I don't recognize.
    Even though everything is made from the same material, there's a lot of variation to the place.
    It's kind of beautiful in it's own way.

    "No way in, no way out, what is this place? Who would build something like this, this place makes no sense."
    "What's the purpose of a room without an entrance?"

    I think I get it. Sort of. A little bit.

    "I don't think this is a room Crow."
    "A truly fantastic obvservation Hyu. Your sense of deduction never fails to amaze me."
    "So tell me friend. This... ROOM here, you know... if it is not a room, than what is it?"

    "... It's... like a doorway."
    "A doorway... Listen Hyu, you're not making any sense."
    "You said it yourself, there is no purpose to a room without an entrance."
    "So naturally, if the room has no entrance it must be a doorway? Whaaaat?"


    "Well, there's a little more to it than that."
    "Look, we're pretty much at the exact location that you found, right? But it still feels like we're off somehow."
    "Yet there is no way to get any closer..."
    "Not because there is something preventing us from physically getting closer, but because there is no point in space closer to the location than where we stand."
    "But clearly, we're still at some distance."


    "Whaaaaaat? That is a clear contradiction."
    "It's... shifted."
    "Shifted?"
    "I don't know what to call it. We're in the correct location, but not quite in the right... dimension?"
    "Right... what?"
    "There's more to this realm than what is physical. Your spirit for example, it interacts with the physical world, but it is not located in it."
    "Oh. Yeah. That kind of makes sense actually."
    "How do you go to another dimension?"


    Yeah... about that...
    Oh hold on a second. I have done this before haven't I?
    To go to a non-physical place you have to leave behind the physical.

    "Crow, can you mind my body?"
    "Mind the... Hyu what the fuck?"
    "What? Phoenix abilities and stuff."
    "But why would you voluntarily leave your own body? Isn't that dangerous???"
    "Hmm..."
    "HMM??? YOU DON'T KNOW???"
    "Oh calm down, It probably isn't. I've done it before."
    "Probably he says..."


    I sit down in the middle of the room and concentrate on my own aura.
    I then begin to gently separate it from my body and let it drift towards the location Crow found.
    And just like that, I find myself in the same room, except... well... it's kind of different.
    Everything is much brighter and desaturated. I also feel an odd out of place sensation.
    I also have no body, and more importantly, I'm not alone.



    There's another person sitting right in front of me.
    I say person, but it's kind of difficult to tell.
    It's more like a body of light in the shape of a human but genderless being.
    Whoever he or she (I'll go with she because of the feminine hair) is, she has her eyes closed, like she's meditating.
    I feel like I'm intruding. It seems kind of rude just to enter this place without asking for permission first.
    Then again, I wouldn't have known how to do that. I should at least say something though.
    But what do I say? I'm not even sure what I'm here for exactly...

    "Hi!"


    Smooth Hyu. Very smooth.
    She looks at me, revealing eyes of pure light.
    She answers with a soothing yet assertive voice.

    "Here you are."
    "Erm... yes?"


    Awkward... now what? Oh well, might as well just say it.

    "I... I'm not entire sure why I came here."
    "You are here because twelve men are after your life, and you are uncertain as to how to deal with that situation."


    12 men. The templars. She knows.
    I get the feeling that I am yet again dealing with someone who knows more about my life than I do.
    But I suppose this is a good thing. If she knows about my situation she might be able to help me.
    Suddenly there is hope again...
    but... I don't feel it?
    Shouldn't I be excited? Shouldn't I feel hopeful right now?
    All I feel is eerieness. Everything feels off.
    I have no time to deal with those feelings though.
    There are more important things at hand.

    "I need help."


    She takes some time to reply. I can see that she has a difficult time processing the things I say and formulating her thoughts into words.

    "Yes. You have come here for help. Your path has stopped in this very location..."
    "... There is a decision you have to make."


    Usually I'd ask a thousand questions right now. But today is different.
    I just go with the flow, not minding that I do not understand.

    "I will offer you an item. An item of great importance..."
    "You will take it. And then your path will inevitably lead to death."

    "Death?"
    "Yes."


    She doesn't seem concerned about this at all.

    "But... you said I had to make a decision."
    "Yes. You will take the item."


    For some reason I jump to a conclusion expaining why she expresses herself the way she does.
    It seems perfectly obvious to me.

    "You... you aren't experiencing time the way I do."
    "Yes, I see what can be. I see the paths connecting the present to the future."
    "But time is always in motion. There are so many possibilities. And every action taken, every decision made has the capability to reorganize the web that is time."

    "Yet you already know which decision I will make. You already know that I will take an item from you."
    "Yes. Some paths are more likely than others."
    "The men that are after you. That is why they hunt you..."


    I had a feeling the templars weren't after me purely because I was a dragon. What does that even mean? Being a dragon.

    "There are special points in time. Fixed points in time. Points that will always occur."
    "So many paths lead to them that some of them will inevitably cross at this very point."
    "The men after you must have seen that your path intersects a point that is of great importance to them."
    "While it is impossible to foresee the future, one can remove all paths that are not beneficial to oneself, thus increasing the chance of a favorable outcome."


    So that is why they are after me. It makes sense. They are going to do something of great importance.
    And they have seen that my timeline crosses that event, so they are killing me ahead of time, ensuring that I cannot influence the event.
    You cannot forsee the future. But you can influence it in your favor.
    But this doesn't matter right now. Nothing matters besides them. I have to deal with them as soon as possible.
    I have a few days at most. Maybe only a few hours.

    The being summons a small orb of light in her hand and makes a gesture suggesting that I should take it.

    "So this is the item that I will take. A decision that will lead me to death."
    "Yes. As promised."
    "But... will I win?"
    "All I can tell you is that it will influence your path greatly."
    "And... as promised?"
    "You do not remember."


    I've heard that a few times too often. "You do not remember". But this time it doesn't matter.
    This time I don't care about all the unanswered questions.
    She is right. My decision is already made, even if I do not know why.
    My right hand is already grabbing towards the orb.
    I only hold onto it for a brief moment before it is absorbed by myself.

    "Thank you."


    I say... in a rather faint voice.
    Everything is clear now. At least everything of importance. There is no need for further questions.

    I know what this orb is... and I know why I am going to die...

      Oh that was really great right there, so I take it you already know because the knowledge was found instinctively on your dream self or due to events after this one?

      I suppose you could say that I knew instinctively, yes. The moment I touched the orb it was perfectly clear, the knowledge was just there.
      At least the basic behind what this orb is... I didn't really care for much more at the time.

      Lol, when I was writing this down, near the end when I was trying to come up with an explanation as to what the orb is my headaches got kinda bad.
      So at one point I just figured, screw it, and just replaced the explanation I started with this last sentence.

      *makes up excuses*

      First off, I'd like to thank you for posting the entry.

      Thank you.

      Secondly, each time I see an exit sign within buildings, my immediate thoughts go to predicting what the 'exit' holds. Every exit is also an entrance. Your death is looking like a wonderful new life. Well. It could be awful. Who knows. At least it'll be different?

      Yes, but why give up on something that has been amazing for so long? Why not hold on to it, at least for as long as you can?
      Then again, maybe I'm just saying that because I had this dream a few months back, and I did hold on, and it sort of worked out.

      I didn't mean it had to end. An exit isn't an ending. It's a transition.

      But since it sort of worked out, I'm looking forward to reading how you died!
