Magic Arrived, Now Fate Takes It's Seat



My Decision Made

What?! I was not expecting that question. I'm not sure what sort of a question I was expecting but a question of direction, really?

You mean to say that in order for me to move on I simply have to choose if I go left or right? 

It seemed impossible that my fate could be decided by such a simple question.

Yes, the voice laughed back;

As simple as choosing left or right. As simple as and important as a decision as you'll ever make, choose wisely little one for there is no going back once the decision is made, the direction of your life is set. You get to choose your fate, so feel carefully and answer decisively.

Feel carefully? What do you mean FEEL carefully?

If I was about to make a decision about the direction of my life I wanted to be as informed as possible.

Listen to yourself little cat. Feel to find your answer for that might just help you choose a direction that's right for you.

I was beginning to feel concerned. What is a made a wrong choice?

What lies in each direction?

There was a long pause before the voice spoke;

That I cannot tell you, even though once you move on from this place you will no longer remember even being here or anything we have talked about, as I said before no one does, so it would not matter what I said but where it does matter is right here, right now. Whatever I say might have an influence on your decision and that must not happen. I'm the guardian of The Place of Choice and as such I'm here to help guide and provide whatever answers I can BUT I cannot influence, the choice must be yours. So I pose the question once more Left? Or Right?

With no information how on earth could I make an informed choice? I couldn't clearly. Right I must listen to myself see if I can feel the best direction for me. Oh what lay ahead and why wouldn't I remember being here, it felt like such a very, very important moment and yet I'll never remember it, how can that be?

I suppose it doesn't matter how hard I try to work it out if fate had a plan for me well then I best just make a choice and stop fretting about it. I'll deal with whatever comes my way, I always have, The arrival of River, the trials of love with Mogsie, George and The Twins, The Lane of Bells, my passing and journey through, and back again, the Rainbow Tunnel with Troy Lamore and even facing The Curse and freeing The Queen of Catkind during The Game of Truth, I'd dealt with them all and I didn't know what I was doing then either. Right here goes, my decision made.

Left. I choose to go left!

The lights began to swirl and out of the myriad of colours a circle appeared with a beautiful light in the middle, I was mesmerised, I could a feel wind beginning to grow and another little white light buzzed around me and started to move in towards the light, I felt compelled to follow it then the voice spoke again;

Then enter my little friend and don't be scared, you are about to go on an amazing adventure, and I wish you luck.

I started to move forward almost in a trance, the light was so beautiful and I felt this was the right thing to do, the wind was now a roar all around me and the sound, oh the sound was so beautiful, like a thousand harps and chimes playing in harmony and I felt at peace....

....hang on a second, something the voice just said started to panic me and I turned back to where I had just come from;

Wish me luck what do you mean you wish me luck? 

The light exploded like a supernova all around me and I began to fall...

Left? Or Right?

No I've not. 

I was quite indignant at being told I've done something or been somewhere when I know I've not.

The voice laughed.

Oh I can assure you, you have, no one remembers no matter how hard they try.

I scanned my memories, could a trick be being played on me? Was the voice telling me the truth, had I been here before? Nothing, not even the slightest ounce of familiarity.

Why does no one remember?

It's not something that's possible, the voice paused.

To remember, well let's just say there would be ramifications.

What do you mean ramifications?

I felt I was being fobbed off.

Things would not be as they should, as they are decided by each who passes this way. Fate would be cheated and that is not something that should happen.

My head was spinning.

What do you mean?

I said before there is a question that for you to move on from this place you must answer and only you can answer. It's a simple question and according to your answer your fate will be decided. 

My mind was racing, my fate will be decided, I felt very uneasy, he said there was nothing to worry about while I remained here, suddenly the thought of moving on didn't seem to appealing.

What if I just stay here? 

You can if you wish, many have. I've a feeling that you won't though, it takes courage to go into the unknown and I've a feeling you've got that in abundance but the choice is yours, as you wish.

This voice, this thing seemed to know me well, I might be scared but staying stuck in one place because of fear, well I might pause a while but it's never stopped me before. 

OK, here goes I thought;

I'm ready, what's the question?

The form in front of me changed position again and I felt a warmth spread all over me.

I wish you luck my friend. 

I believed the voice was genuine in it's wishes and prepared myself.

In order to move on from this place there are two pathways, one goes to the left, the other to the right, the question is which one will you decide to take. 

Left? Or Right?

A Question

What do you mean this is The Place of Choice?

I'd had no idea where I'd been all this time, was everything leading up to this point, I had no idea? Nothing that had happened to me for so long had made sense and now here I was in this dark place, lights swirling all around me being told by a voice I was unfamiliar with that I was now at somewhere called The Place of Choice. Whatever next?

It's OK, there's nothing to worry about.

The voice boomed back at me as it continued to glow and change shape and colour.

This my friend is possibly the most important place you have ever been to.

Well I doubted that I'd been to the other side and back again and I think that was pretty important but I wasn't going to argue.

This is the place where you have free-will, nothing will restrict you, you are free to go whenever you so choose, you just have to answer one question and then you are free to go on your way.

One question? What you mean I can leave at any time, if I answer a question.

Oh yes my little friend, just one question that's all it takes for you to move on.

I was getting angry, all these riddles.

What is the place? Where am I? What's been happening to me all this time? I was told I was going on an amazing journey but this has been anything but amazing, it's been scary and confusing.

The voice laughed.

Ah, I see you have some questions of your own and I'll answer them best I can, infact I've already answered the first, this my friend is The Place of Choice and you've been here before, you just don't remember!
