This week’s words with thanks to Sam, Mr Yves… Sweep Void Virtue Tonal Shimmer Burgundy Foot Kingfisher Hurry Bridge Nintendo Grove.
As Nicole Kingfisher breathed her last the angels responsible for the next phase of her existence were engaged in a serious game of Nintendo tennis.
These angels, Greg, an angel from on high and Wayne, an angel from down below were standing in front of the television, eyes focused on the game at hand and neither entity giving the other an inch.
As it was neither was in a hurry to deal with Nicole’s soul, “What’s another minute or two in the grand scheme of eternity?” they both thought.
Finally, their concentration was broken by the urgent tonal sounds coming from their soul alarms.
They stopped long enough for each angel to sweep their eyes over the life of Nicole Kingfisher.
As it turned out she was a woman of questionable virtue having spent most of her life with a foot in the camps of decency and indecency.
Greg immediately thought of her as being one for Wayne. Heaven wouldn’t suit a soul like Nicole’s.
As it was Nintendo was not played upstairs as it was more your competition bridge sort of place. Heaven was where you could sit in shady groves contemplating the majesty of the Lord, humming hymns interminably.
Hell was where the physical excitement could be found along with the most mouth-watering sushi, available only in Hell’s Kitchen a small café on the edge of the dark void.
With the passing of Nicole Kingfisher, the two angels stood at the foot of her bed, her soul standing in front of them awaiting determination.
She didn’t think there would be any hesitation determining her eternal fate. A second later the two angels became a shimmer before her, and she found herself at the top of a large burgundy coloured staircase.
“Keep on going down,” said the kind voice of Wayne who never liked the idea of terrifying his new members with what eternity might bring them. “There’s a small café at the bottom of the stairs. Greg and I will meet you there, see if you can think of any reason to go to Heaven, we’ll both be curious to know. Oh, and the sushi is to die for.”
