The Gatekeeper

“He betrayed me”

“Betrayed you? How.”

“I trusted him. I made him the gatekeeper. His sole duty was to show the way. He was to lead them to the gates. He was to point them towards the place where they would spend eternity. For that his reward... to remain mortal.”

“And what happened.”

“Not only did he not fulfil his duty. He actively worked against me. He pointed them towards the land of the living. He thought he could rescue them. He sent them back.”

“And where is he now?”

“Now and forever he will only show the true direction.”
