A quick note: this "story" seems more like a prologue to the others. The prompt was "Writing is Immortality." It was tough to come up with something that stuck with my theme, but I managed to get writing and immortality both in there, so I hope it's acceptable!
Please come back this friday, as I have the great fortune to welcome Marcia Richards from the Life List Club for a fabulous guest post about financial health. I will be hanging out over at David Walker's blog on friday, so if you get a chance, please stop by and say "hi"!
Creating a companion was work.
I AM frowned. Adam had turned out to be a disappointment. I AM had made the man in his own image, giving him freedom and choice, and at the first temptation Adam turned his back on him.
He still loved Adam. He loved all of his creation. He refused to reject him, or humanity, and so had created a road back to companionship with him. He wasn’t going to wait around, lonely, though.
The pen scratched across the paper.
Perhaps he needed to start with an immortal, like the angels of the Virtues. They did such a nice job taking care of the heavens.
He wrote faster as he rushed to capture the idea in his head into the Book of Creation.
Created from his own essence, the new being would be made of the heavens, of light, and
of energy. He would not be bound by time and space. He would be forever. He would have
choice as well, but because he would live within the heavens, he would not be easily drawn
away from I AM.
He sat back, and reread the words of the new creation. When he reached the end, I AM
smiled, and wrote the last sentence.
He shall be called Ahriman.
