I was so glad to see my body, not the way I liked it to be, but still I was near.
Before I could join my flesh and blood, an invisible wall prevented me. It seemed an impossibility since I was a spirit so I could get through space with ease. At that instance, I could not.
“Did you forget something?”
The invisible wall and the entity transmitting thoughts to me could be one and the same.
I did not have to ask who it was because I was already warned who waited for my return.
“Do I have to get your permission to wake up and continue my life?”
“You know I was tempted to keep your body because you seem to be enjoying the spirit world.”
“I am sorry if you felt that way. It was a liberating experience. I am sure you did it yourself.”
“Yes. Millions of times.”
“So you agree with me.”
“Not really. You had a joy ride. Mine was a job I am responsible with.”
“I am curious. How did it happen to me?”
“Didn’t you remember the last thing you did?”
I tried to recall what it was before answering. My body was sitting in front of the computer so perhaps I fell asleep while surfing the Net.
With the force vested on the entity beside me working wonders, the video I was watching earlier played on the monitor.
“Your trigger is somewhat entertaining. Strange but subliminally powerful.”
“It was accidental. I never planned it nor intended it to happen.”
There was a long pause. The entity could be arguing with itself on how to treat my case.
“Since this is your first offense, I am willing to overlook your transgressions. I will convince the offended parties that you were a harmless traveler who committed unintentional mistakes.”
“So, could I enter my body now?”
“Go ahead! I’ll be on my way. I hope I won’t see you again for a very long while.”
I was afraid to ask why. The invisible wall began to take a shape of something everyone recognized.
When I actually saw what the entity looked like, I did not waste time waking up. My whole body was shaking: I was perspiring all over. Who wouldn’t?
I survived my personal chat with the Angel of Death. Thank heavens! It went just fine.
