With the gentle twist of the key, the door began to slowly open towards her. She backed up a couple steps and looked through the door. The orb landed on her right shoulder and nuzzled up against the girl’s neck. Once again the sensation of warm tingles that she felt before came back. A sky of endless purple cosmos came into view. Each star was different from the other.
“Each individual star has their own story to tell” said the indigo orb. The orb had a voice unlike any other. The orb distinctly has a male’s voice, but the orb’s voice is anything but masculine. It was softer than the purest silk. “Space is timeless and the universe is infinite. You are in control of your own destiny dear girl.”
“I’m completely speechless. I don’t know what to say or do. It’s just, wow.”
“Take a leap of faith! Jump into the stars. You’ve got nothing to lose, and an endless universe to gain.”
“Are you joking??? I don’t have any wings! How am I supposed to do that???” Suddenly a small set of bird-like wings popped up from the orb. They were the same color as the orb and glowed as bright as the moon.
“You don’t need any wings this time, silly. I’ve got you covered.”
“But I-” The orb grabbed the girl by the hood of the robe and flung her through the door. The orb let loose of the girl then grabbed her by the hood of the robe again.
“What the hell was that??? You almost let me fall!”
“I would never let you fall dear girl. Not ever.”
The orb and girl glided through the endless cosmos. The duo burst straight into a cosmic cloud and came out the other side covered in sparkling water droplets and purple dust. The orb giggled as the girl sneezed from the sparkling water and dust. What in the world is this stuff??
“Hahahahahaha! It’s stardust my dear. One of the oldest substances in the universe.”
“Wait, you could hear what I was thinking?”
“You can read my mind?”
“I don’t consider it to be reading your mind. I am however able to sense your thoughts, emotions, and state of being.”
“So, you can hear whatever I am thinking?”
“Yes. You can even direct a thought in a certain direction, let’s say my direction for example, I can perceive what you are thinking. Go ahead and give it a try!”
Is this whole thing real?
“Just as real as you and me.”
“I don’t quite understand.” The girl moved her long bangs from her eyes and scratched her head in confusion.
“That is okay my dear. This is only the beginning! There are a lot of things that you have yet to learn.”
“I don’t want to sound stupid or anything like that though” She sighed. “It’s like as if everything has been wiped from my mind. Its completely blank.”
“You do not sound stupid! Nor will you ever sound stupid. This is only the beginning and this is very very hard stuff to learn. You will get the hang of it, I promise.”
“Get the hang of what spirit orb???”
