Response to May 30, 2014 prompt at Friday Fictioneers.
Another World, Genre: Fantasy
Two years had passed since Julia left to investigate the disappearance of her sister, leaving only a single scrap of paper.
“Stand in front of the doorway, say the words, and the portal will open.”
Mark held the note in front of him and read, “I am ready to see Elysium with my eyes. Open for me now.”
Golden light erupted from the stone floor and walls. It was true, all true.
Mark crumpled the letter in his hand and slipped the paper into his pocket, then turned away smiling, secure in the knowledge that wherever she was now, Julia was happy.
A day late and a dollar short! Just got back from a trip and had to take a shot on this one.
