Sample Chapter


“I am worried.”

Andaris walked down the aisle, looking at the Council of Eight sitting in front of him.

“Another fool claims to shine the light for those in need.” He shook his head in disbelief.

“It is amazing how well-known this guy has become. Thousands of people are following him, believing every word he says, desperately trying to find out who they really are . . .”

A sigh escaped his lips. “When will they finally get it? The road to wisdom can only be paved by eliminating the chaos they have created themselves.”

His hand rested on the ancient document, carefully wrapped in a silk sheet.

“Where is the love? I fear this beautiful feeling is drifting away. Mankind seems to have totally forgotten it. The main source of our existence will slowly disappear.”

The Council of Eight watched him carefully. “It would be a disaster . . .” Andaris’ eyes looked sad.

“The time to act is now,” he said slowly. “However, we all agreed to stick to the Plan.”

A hush fell upon the Council.

“What about the Plan?” It was the Chairman. He looked puzzled. “Why don’t we change it?”

The other men nodded in agreement and started to speak out loud.

“I agree. It is now or never.”

“If the world continues to move in the wrong direction, the Plan has no use.”

“The earth will be destroyed.”

“What about the Girl? Is she strong enough?”

“Our Leader, is he in agreement . . .”

“Silence.” Andaris raised his voice. “I met with our Leader. He shares my concern. Endless discussions have been taking place, resulting in a change of the Plan.”

The men were startled. The look of surprise was clearly written all over their faces.

“We will follow the Plan as it is,” Andaris said. “However, there is one significant change.”

He took a deep breath before he continued.

“The world will be confronted with a heartbreaking love story.”

The room was filled with voices now. This exciting news from the Leader clearly shook them up.

“Andaris, how is this possible?”

“The Leader . . . does he think it will happen?” “How on earth are you going to do this?” Andaris raised his arm again.

“We need to keep the Faith.” He sounded convinced. “I feel their love will be earth-shattering. Somewhere deep inside, humanity will recognize a long-lost feeling. A desire will start burning in their hearts to love in a similar passionate way. The scent of their naked souls, united in a never ending song of love and affection, is as pure as a blossoming tree.”

It was very quiet. All men were gazing in awe at him.

“We have waited long enough.” He was deadly serious. “They are ready now.” Hell was breaking loose.

“Andaris, are you sure?”

“There are so many people . . . Why do you think they will fall in love?”

“Suppose their love is not as strong as we thought it would be . . . ?”

“Is there a back-up plan?”

Andaris shook his head. “None of this. There is no fall back. I understand your concern.”

He looked around. The Council seemed to give serious consideration to what he just said.

“Through the years I always fulfilled your expectations. Never did I fail.” The men nodded. He was right.

“The Leader has clearly put his trust in me. We have made our decision.” He cleared his throat, knowing exactly the effect his words would have.

“I am extremely proud that the Plan has been put into full operation today. The change will be leading. All will happen as it should.”
