As she was led away, she turned, ” Disbanded the council should be for it is a pulsing scar on our times.”
The council members stirred as the crowd gasp. She raised her shackled hands and proclaimed, “You are all here at stake. The remainder of your lives and your children’s lives too. Mark my words, all will perish if you don’t follow the way.” But, forced away again, she raised her hands into the air and pleaded for them to listen.
A member of the council rose, “Off with her! She can do no more damage now that she is ours. After all, a single individual cannot change the ways.”
Lifted from the ground by a force unseen by all, she was fixed there. The crowd began to disperse, and the council members took cover.
In a voice deeper than her own. And to everyone’s surprise, who witnessed, the words began.
“You will all perish in a span of three days if you do not believe. Because you have threatened this woman, you have threatened me. And this will not stand. However, if you follow now and change your hearts, all will be saved.”
The masses fell to their knees because they had never seen such a display. However, the council members stood their ground and yelled, “Seize her! Bring her to justice!”
Just then, a loud crack and a flash from the sky above startled them all. Because before their eyes rode a horseman dressed in white upon a white horse. And he carried a trumpet in his hand, which he blew with a mighty force that shook the ground.
