Gold In My Belly – Chapter 2
MEMORIES OF RACHEAL
I can remember that day so well
Very long ago
It was summer
And I had fallen asleep
On my garden sofa
In my back garden
The blaring sound
of siren woke me up
And I though to myself,
As I jumped up from my sleep
Startled and dazed
Wondering if something bad
Was happening on my street
Then the sound
Gently receded and retreated
Slowly fading away
And there was sudden calm
The soft evening breeze
Caressed my cheek
And I felt more alive
I stretched myself on the sofa
And immediately I put my head on the sofa
I fell into a trance
I looked and all I could see
Was a great sea
Within a hundred yards
From where I was
I saw a crowd of lovely ladies
The crowd was huge, so huge
Over a million
All waking on the sea
And emerging from the sea
With roses, tiara’s and crowns
“We must crown you.” They all echoed
Bowing as they said it.
“No I said, get away from me.”
The female leader of the group
Tall and perfect in beauty
Stepped into my garden and a regal looking man
Of authority accompanied her – he was obviously a prince.
“You are making a great mistake,
We won’t leave you alone
Until you yield.
We want you
Because you are a great asset
Your blood is gold and pure
And a delight to us
Come to us.”
She turned to the prince standing beside her.
“This is Del,
The prince of Nada Kingdom.” The prince was very
Striking and extremely handsome. The robe he had on dazzled with
Gems and unearthly beauty.
I starred at the prince in dismay
Wondering why they were disturbing my evening rest
I shook my head as I carefully examined him.
“Handsome but not my type.”
I muttered under my breath
The prince asked, obviously insulted and not pleased
“Oh you heard me? Well, I was talking to myself.”
“You dare to defy me me?”
My laugh was shrill and out of this world.
“Why not? I shrugged as I got up from the sofa, stepped forward
And looked straight into his eyes, not scared or afraid
of his power. I looked into His eyes with scorn.
Shafts of fire were beginning to proceed out of His eyes.
“What a mess, I am not gonna waste my time with you,
“Disappear or fire will swallow you.”
The prince moved closer to me and a golden cloud appeared and encircled me.
Prince Del was breathtaking in beauty
He was powerful
However I despised him
He was nothing compared
The Prince of princes that was around me.
At the sight of the golden cloud,
Prince Del instantly transformed into a beast, screened in terror
and evaporated into the air as thick smelly green mist filled the air.
I opened my eyes and realized I was very hungry. I went into my house and the doorbell
was ringing. There was smoke everywhere and the fire alarm shrilled into my perplexed bones.
