Book of Life : No Place for Angels
Book of Life : No Place for Angels
by Michael Richard
Into the peace and serenity of Heaven, mankind had ascended. Every single kingdom had been filled. All now enjoyed the blissful quietness of their surroundings. But even serenity has a way of crashing down, with a little help. There came unto all in Heaven a long lost child, Lilith. Generations after generations of those who had made it to Heaven witnessed her coming. Lilith’s generational appearance tested the resistance of mankind. In every instance, since the first generation arrived in Heaven, mankind would flee to the past. What they had gained, they would so easily severe and run from it. Like little sheep hiding from a wolf that had entered the flock, mankind would, without hesitation, leave Heaven to hide. The strengths and powers they possessed could have easily sent the long lost child away, instead, they would choose to run from it, in fear.
Only, in this generation, all that was about to change. Just as the archangels Gabriel, Mi.cha.el and Lucifer lower their heads, already thinking what the outcome would be again, there came a cry from among the kingdoms. Never before had there been a cry for anything, mankind had just fled backward, into time. That spark, the cry from a single kingdom, allowed the Archangels to act, whereas before, they were forbidden to interfere. Their actions, along with the actions of mankind, would clear Heaven of everyone. God Himself, even left Heaven, this time. In His leaving, all gates slammed shut and fused together, leaving but one open.
Back on Earth, the archangels soon discover the passage of a 1000 years had gone by without them knowing. The passing was that of the 1000-year reign of pure peace. The archangels witnessed it, but didn’t recognize what they saw. All that was written had not been fulfilled, the archangels worst fears. What was to come would be the greatest army ever amassed on the field of battle. The army would not be that of mankind, but the army of the long lost child called Lilith, they were her children. The number matched that, equally, of every single person that had ever been born since existence began, that’s how great an army they faced, alone. Mankind would not lift a finger to help them. Three, against an equally, and most powerful foe. Not only would each archangel have to face this massive army, they will also have to face what he or she has feared most, themselves and their own past.
I was born into a large family, 10 children, to be exact. I am the fourth oldest, among my brothers and sisters. In our family, growing up, there was love for one another, yet there was also, I guess, the sense of what is mine is mine. We didn’t have a great deal, but what we had, we held dear. Each one of us did graduate high school, thanks to our mother, and found our own path in life. We, for many years, drifted apart in all different directions. Today, we enjoy the closeness we have with one another.
At age 17, while still in high school, I went to work in a textile factory. Within one year I had accumulated such great wealth in that factory, (ha, ha) that I got married. It was in the same factory where I met my wife, of 27 years. So I guess I did obtain a vast wealth there and for 6 years I continued working at the same location. At 23 years of age I joined the United States Navy. For the next 20 years, with my wife and three children in tow, us nomads journeyed from place to place, never truly having a home to speak of. A few years here, a year there, our nomadic children endured these hardships. So many different schools, and to leave your friends behind, it was hard on them. Needless to say my wife, I knew it must also be hard on her, but never once did she complain about where we were going.
