“Step away from the scales please”, the thunderous voice rang out, breaking through to Ebosele as the mist cleared. He opened his eyes. The huge figure was back in front of him. The large book lay closed, as though it had never been opened. As he attempted stepping down from the scales, a force lifted him off effortlessly and took him to another set of scales. A figure looking as huge as the first one stood directly in his line of sight. The semi darkness had metamorphosed into an overwhelming glare of light rays. Ebosele could see the face of the new figure. It looked neither masculine nor feminine. Though it had a human form, it looked like no human Ebosele had ever seen or known. The figure smiled and stretched forth it’s hands, “I am not human my child. I am called Ecitsuj, bearer of srewsna. Step onto the scales please.”
Ebosele was amazed. There was something about the creature’s voice that sounded like the clashing of musical instruments in perfect harmony.
“Welcome to the Koob,” the Sburehc echoed.” Ebosele had completely forgotten all about the Sburehc. It was comforting to realise he wasn’t alone.
“Step onto the scales please,” the figure repeated.
Ebosele wished the creature would keep talking. He stepped forward just as he was lifted onto a scale as bright and radiant as a large diamond crystal. Another book descended from the skies. It was a smaller book. It came to rest on a small flat object that looked like a flower petal. The book opened of its own accord and flipped noiselessly, one page at a time. For the second time, scenes from Ebosele’s life flashed in front of his eyes…
