The Parable Of The House (Non Erotic)
Suddenly, I received a video chat message from God. Yes, God. He looks like Gandalf the white wizard in the Lord of the Rings movies. He asked me if I want to go over to his house for some tea and cake. He told me Five of my friends have already agreed to go so I said ok. "Be careful when you go outside. It is rather gloomy. A storm just came..", God said with a beardy smile on his face. "...are you sure you know the way to my house?", he added. "I think I know..", I replied nodding my head. "Ok very well. If you ever get lost, just look for my stepping stones. All you have to do is follow them..", God gently chidded and bade goodbye.
It was stormy when i went outside of our house. Malakas ang ihip ng hangin at binabaha pa. Parang nasa dalampasigan ang mga bahay-bahay sa paligid. I remembered the stepping stones and followed them until I reached the edge of the sea. It was a dead end. Napasobra ata ako. I felt very sad and lonely for being lost. Then suddenly, a familiar voice called my name not very far away from where I was standing.
I followed the voice until I saw a group of people in the distance waving me. It was God and five of my friends. God really looks like Gandalf the white wizard. He sounded like him too. "Over here my child. we were looking for you", God said with his signature beardy smile. "Come now. Let us go inside. It is much warmer", he hastily said extending his arm towards a small but very tall house surrounded by a beautiful flowery garden.(Parang bahay sa loob ng Camella) Me and my friends entered the house with excitement. Gods' house is very small from the outside but very spacious on the inside.
There is only a familiar living room in the whole ground floor of the house. There was a pot of tea and a cake served at the center but I am more interested at the higher levels of his house. God asked me if I want to explore upstairs while my friends are happily eating here. I said yes while jumping in excitement. I was really very curious and anxious to see what can be found upstairs. God accompanied me as we went up the small stairs to the second floor.
There was nothing. I just found a large empty space. "Not to worry my child, you can still go up", God said while pointing his forefinger upwards. I looked up to see a multitude of "heavens" above me. There lay beautiful beaches, cities with fiestas, rich lushful forests and other natural wonders. God noticed my twinkling eyes upon seeing these places but suddenly I felt sadness again when I remembered that I am far away from those happy places. Those were the places where I dreamed to visit. "My child you do remember how to fly right?", God said while suddenly breaking my moment of sad silence. I told myself: "Of course Why not?"
Then suddenly a pair of pigeon-like wings grew at my back just below my shoulders and I flew hastily upwards towards my dream destinations. "My child, dont go too far", God warned me while I hover above him in excitment. I nodded in excitement. I first went to the city of love (Paris, France) then the beaches all over the world. Then I went over to the forest regions of the earth. Suddenly on my travel, I noticed a small Egyptian portrait of a couple having orgy sex. There came a feeling of heavy guilt on me. I was so distracted that I did not notice my wings falling off.
Fortunately God was able to catch me and taught me how to grow my wings again. God warned me that someone is coming to get me. We went downstairs to see my friends talking to each other after eating their cakes. Suddenly a tall and dark stranger entered the house and it stood at the doorway. Me and my friends automatically recognized him with his horns. He was the devil wearing a coat and tie. God spoke to the dark stranger. "What brings you here at my house?" The devil looked around with his red eyes and saw my friends and me. "I have come to collect them.."he said in a dark scary voice while showing his wide fanged mouth.
Me and my friend shook in terror as the devil went closer and closer to get us. God suddenly went infront of the dark figure and stopped his advance. "Now, now. Must I remind you? This is my house and I make the rules. There will be no violence in this place. They are my valued guests. They are mine to keep..." Hearing this gave me and my friends a feeling of safety and security. We ran behind God shaking in terror, fearing that the dark figure may grab us.
"Why not have a cup of tea and some cake. Then be on your way..", God said to the devil. The dark stranger sat pouring a cup of tea and ate the cake in one bite with his big sharp mouth. Then he stood up. The dark figure was so upset that he stomped his animal-like hoof on the floor, tearing the tiled ground and walked outside the house. Before disappearing, we heard a scary dark voice from him. "I will be back someday. They will be mine.."
This gave me and my friends a grave feeling of chilling fright. What if we went back to our own house with our families? The dark figure will surely come to get us. "I asked God in tagalog. "Tatay, pano po kung hindi kami nakahanda at bumalik yung demonyo.." God looked at me with a calm smile and said: " Not to worry my child, I promise I will always be by your side. Surely, I will not let you face him when you are not ready.."
I woke up and realized that it was Sunday morning already. Thanks be to God.
Your Ate Yvonnie woke up alive :)
