Revelations XII: Here First / Revelaciones XII: Aquí Primeros



Previously in Revelations:  Taken twice to witness the end of all things, our hero finally faces his destiny and accepts the task given him by a shining stranger:  Protect the bloodlines of the two men that may one day bring hope for a new future.
Standing atop what was briefly a battlefield now a frozen lake, our hero and his young charge Louisa see a strange light and hear odd music emanating from its frozen center...

Anteriormente en el Apocalipsis: toma dos veces para presenciar el fin de todas las cosas, nuestro héroe finalmente se enfrenta a su destino y acepta la tarea que le había dado un extraño brillante: Proteger las líneas de sangre de los dos hombres de que algún día podría traer la esperanza de un nuevo futuro.
De pie encima de lo que fue brevemente un campo de batalla ahora un lago congelado, nuestro héroe y su joven Louisa ver una luz extraña y escuchar música extraña que emanaba de su centro congelado...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A catchy tune it was
A rough-hewn voice not singing
More barking, chopping the speech
Rhythmically and forcefully
"Mama said knock you out
I am gonna knock you out"
Floating to our ears through still, cold air
Carefully I moved us
Out onto the ice
Towards the musical light
Louisa tucked behind me
Her hand in one of mine
My other on the smooth, flat stone
Small flame protruding
Fire flickering off the frozen pond beneath
As we neared the center
The music ceased, but the light remained
My eyes scanned the horizon in every direction
Ready to make that flame grow
At the slightest vexation
Yet none did come
And we did lay eyes upon a wondrous sight
Though tiny it may have been
A rectangular box
With a glowing image imprinted on its face
One that meant nothing to either of us
And one I crudely attempt to copy here:

Then the light went out
And it sat dark and silent
I bent down and grabbed it up
Warm on the fingers
Louisa looked around me in wonder at it
Made of a material unknown
Feeling durable and light
I shook it gently
And nothing
Louisa pointed to the shiny middle part
Asking what had become of the illumination
And as I began my reply
Her finger slipped and touched the object
Returning the light
Startling us both
And I chuckled and remarked
How could such a little thing make us jump
Closer in I could now see another phrase
"One missed call"
But what had I missed
Baffling!



Realizing I was allowing this device to delay us
And suspecting this was its purpose
I slid it into my pocket and started us back toward home
Louisa was so curious to see the odd thing we had found
But too scared to actually hold it
We trod through snow to our waist at times
But the numbing hard work was a welcome relief
From our previous, terrifying journey
And soon we reached the small town
I had boarded my steed
So grateful I was that his keepers had not used him for food
Their reward was greater than promised
"Louisa this is Romeo, a true and strong companion"
She was so smitten with the beast, love at first sight
And so we rode, and rode
Without incident, without words
Until the dim lights of London filled the horizon
I turned back to see Louisa
Her eyes open so wide
Her new home stealing her breath
Then her eyes flashed with memory
Deep pain, loss
Guilt at her excitement
Then her face buried in my back
Warm tears
"Am I to be all alone in this vast, cold place, dear sir?"
"Sweet girl, while my heart beats you shall never be alone."



Una melodía pegadiza que era
Una voz tosca no cantar
Más ladridos, cortando el discurso
Rítmicamente y con fuerza
"Mamá dijo que noquear
Me va usted noquear "
Flotando a nuestros oídos a través todavía, el aire frío
Con cuidado, me mudé con nosotros
Sobre el hielo
Hacia la luz musical
Louisa escondido detrás de mí
Su mano en uno de los míos
Mi otra en la piedra lisa, plana
Pequeña llama que sobresale
Fuego parpadeo de la charca congelada debajo
A medida que nos acercábamos al centro
La música cesó, pero la luz se mantuvo
Mis ojos recorrieron el horizonte en todas direcciones
Listo para hacer crecer esa llama
A la menor vejación
Sin embargo, ninguno vino
Y lo hicimos poner los ojos en una vista maravillosa
Aunque pequeña puede haber sido
Una caja rectangular
Con una imagen brillante impresa en su cara
Uno que no significaba nada para ninguno de los dos
Y uno me crudamente intento de copiar aquí:



A continuación, la luz se apagó
Y se sentó oscuro y silencioso
Me agaché y cogí para arriba
Caliente en los dedos
Louisa miró a mi alrededor con asombro que
Hecho de un desconocido materiales
Sentirse fuerte y ligero
Negué con suavidad
Y nada
Louisa señaló la parte media y brillante
Preguntar qué había sido de la iluminación
Y cuando comencé mi respuesta
Su dedo resbaló y tocó el objeto
Volviendo a la luz
Nos sobresaltó tanto
Y me reí y observé
¿Cómo podría una cosa tan pequeña hacernos saltar
Más cerca en el que ahora podía ver otra frase
"Una llamada perdida"
Pero lo que tenía me perdí
Desconcertante!


Al darse cuenta de que estaba permitiendo este dispositivo nos retrasa
Y sospechando esto era su propósito
Me deslicé en el bolsillo y nos echó a andar hacia la casa
Louisa era tan curioso ver lo raro que habíamos encontrado
Pero demasiado miedo para celebrar realidad
Nos pisábamos a través de nieve a nuestra cintura, a veces
Pero el adormecer el trabajo duro era un alivio bienvenido
Desde nuestro anterior viaje aterrador
Y pronto llegamos a la pequeña ciudad
Yo había subido mi corcel
Así que yo estaba agradecido de que sus guardianes no lo habían utilizado para la alimentación
Su recompensa fue mayor de lo prometido
"Louisa esto es Romeo, un compañero fiel y fuerte"
Ella estaba tan enamorado de la bestia, el amor a primera vista
Y así nos montamos, y recorrimos
Sin incidentes, sin palabras
Hasta las tenues luces de Londres llenan el horizonte
Me di la vuelta para ver Louisa
Tenía los ojos abiertos de manera amplia
Su nuevo hogar robándole el aliento
Entonces sus ojos brillaron con la memoria
Dolor profundo, pérdida
Culpa a su entusiasmo
Entonces su rostro enterrado en la espalda
Lágrimas calientes
"¿Voy a estar solo en este vasto, lugar frío, querido señor?"
"Dulce niña, mientras que mi corazón late os no estar solo."

Can Louisa activate the device??? They are connected! I'm sure *__* I wonder what would happen if she take it into her hands and try to open it!
The words of our hero must be such a relief for her, poor dear!

Have great day!!!
Hugs :)))))

beautifully written....I really felt for the poor little Louisa, leaving everything behind and having to face the world, but fortunately our hero is with her to defend her.

This is pretty epic - love how the future intertwines with the past! Btw - will you publish this in a book? Could be an idea to consider ;)

Ah the device, what is the future of the device, what will come of it. Is it a force for good or evil? And what year was electricity discovered? :) Our hero has a wonderful plan for Louisa, never fear. She will be well taken care of :) Many hugs for you sweetie!

And perhaps even harder than defending her, what to do with her now that the danger has subsided. Thank you so much sweet friend :)

Yes indeed, I am picturing it as a book but even more as a film at this point, or a television series. Thank you for the very encouraging question :)

Reading your literary pieces always inspires me to write more Shamu! A need for me to write is here but it seems like I am still in the process of capturing that romance and inspiration that are needed for me to write.
Thanks a lot!, for always! :)

love lots,
