49 days

49 days

“My name is Floryan; I’m 17-years-old. I died a few days ago: a bomb attack in the subway. I woke up in a sumptuous landscape of plains and mountains as far as eyes can see. A being of light came to me – an “Elohim” as he said. He offered me a choice: I could eitherfollow him in the Kingdom – some kind of paradise, he said, but I wasn’t allowed to see it before going there; or I could follow himto the Nihil, a gigantic abyss leading to… to what? That was thequestion! I don’t know anything about the Nihil, like I ignore everything about the Kingdom. And I have 49 days to make a decision. No more.The thing is that I’m not the only one involved in this choice…”
