I dunno if deity is the proper word in this context . . . . But oh well. I like the name Raxicoricaphalipatorious. Or Angora. :3
We were shocked at first. It had all happened so fast; we stood up for ourselves and attacked them. The guards were highly outnumbered, and I don't think they expected us to try and fight back. But then we were... free. For the first time ever. We didn't know what to do. Slowly, all the Steamies started to look to me for help. Even kids that were older. I guess they thought of me as a leader. I made the realization, talked to the guards, and was the first to attack a guard itself. I shrugged. <br> "If ya lookin' for help from me... I guess I have it." There, right there. That was the statement that made me the leader. <p> The founder. <p> The royalty. <p> The deity of the Steam. <p> I knew, and I think we all knew, I didn't just mean help with the next step in what to do. It was a casual way of saying that I'd guide them all the way. <p> I walked through the litter of bodies on the floor. Their heads were dented and blooded on the spot that a guard had struck them. <br> "These bodies here, they've gotta go. I'll break the window, you guys start shovelin' 'em out." As I was speaking, I noticed that Erin, one of my alliances, was desperately searching the faces of the living, then sobbing as she went to look at the dead. Probably looking for the boy that was more than an alliance, maybe even more than friend to her. Another reason to never make friends here. <br> "Don't." I held my hand over her eyes to block out the faces of the dead bodies. "It'll only cause more greif. Sart collectin' bodies." With that, I ran to the other side of the factory. It felt good to run. More than good. It was the first time I've ever ran. The guards wouldn't allow it. I neared that mossy, mildewy, smoke-stained window. This was it. Smashing the heel of my boot into the glass, it shattered, sending fine glass particles everywhere, like mist. Slowly, I crawled out of the window. <p> If I thought that running felt good, just close your eyes and imagine how glorious the spring breeze felt, the sky, the sun, the grass. I even kicked off my boots and socks and sunk my toes in the soft, green grass. Well, maybe the grass wasn't all fresh and green and the air wasn't as clean as other places. It's what you would expect right outside a factory. Still, I couldn't remember the last time I've been outside. For a few seconds, maybe, when I arrived at the ophanage. I felt bad for the others, though, still trapped in the factory, hauling many dead bodies to the window. So I jumped back in to help them. We carried the dead outsde, far away, and set them down, not bothering to bury them. The Steamies looked again to me. <br> *Now what?* <br> "You have a new life. Go explore. Try to find civilization, call the cops. Nice workin' with ya folks." I suddenly and desperately turned tail and ran, wanting to get as far away from tt place as I could.. <p> (three move positive comments and I'll continue. Btw, this IS NOT the whole story, them just running to find people or towns. No, not even close. The title Kleptos and Invies will start to make sense soon. And this is suppose to be Simon telling a flashback of the past, so that's why ppl might think it's rushed. It'll go back to present time soon. Ok, I still will not be taking character applications, but I will be taking character names! If you can come up with a cool or casual name, that would help me out. This'll start to get exciting soon, so plz don't quit on meh! Thx!) -Reflections♦
This is a great refresher on the deity of Christ for the contemporary church. It is a great reference work but does not read like one. This book is for everyone. The exegesis is excellent. The historical presentation of the development of the doctrine is even handed and easy to follow.
