I take over from Krupa
The final words of the lifeless creature haunted her. “Seek the light within”. The veils of deception and ignorance parted as she was served a fresh glimpse of her forgotten past. The Welcome, her Mom, the throne and the parting riddle were just mere illusions. She wasn’t in a strange land anymore.
Silence surrounded her yet again. But she no longer feared. She thought of the one name which could give her a chance at redemption “ASLAN” the ruler of nine worlds.
She could here a booming voice across the void. “Did you seek me yet again”? Priya was overjoyed but before she could retort the voice boomed yet again. “Fret not for you are destiny’s child”.
Why the ordeal and the illusions? Does death seek me? Priya quipped back despite the re-assurance”
“THE ANSWERS LIE WITHIN. YOUR ONLY CHANCE AT REDEMPTION DEPENDS ON WHAT YOU CHOOSE. CHOOSE WISELY AND VICTORY WILL BE YOURS”.
The voice disappeared into oblivion as she began her journey again with renewed hope. She knew who her enemy was but she was no longer afraid. She knew the perils of moving forward. She wasn’t embarking on a quest for she already knew the answer which had eluded her. She was taking back what was rightfully hers for she was the “ONE.”
And I pass the baton to Aishwarya Swaminathan for the next twist in the plot http://girlysteps.blogspot.in/2016/05/beginning-of-end-voice-question.html
