From light into darkness

“Oh. I hope the police station will contact you and that the rumors will also stop. I can’t wait to see them,” she said in reply before following after him to his bookshelf where he partially pulled a book that looked like a first edition copy with the title being Dante’s Paradise Lost in order to open a secret door. She nodded when told to follow and she did so up the stairs.

They passed a few doors, all open and overflowing with papers and files until they reached a open door that lead to three story office. A honeycomb network held scrolls in tubes made of bone each one labeled with a name, contract (if there is one) death type and location on the bone part of the scroll. They where organized by death, then last name alphabetically. The "stories" was narrow circular catwalks and a ladder that spins on a track around he room. 

 

A medium size desk sat overflowing with the bones and as they walked in three more popped from nowhere and landed on the pile that nearly buried the desk. Behind it was a large throne made of white berch carved like bone and two red and gold wings where mounted spread out and the primary feathers pointed upward on the back of the chair. 

 

Many narrow vertical windows let in light and the roof seemed to be made out of one-way glass letting in light from the top but looks like a roof from the outside. Five more bones popped up as she looked around and Jach made his way to the desk. He groaned. "Aw s*** another war? I hate war. So many people are dead. Well.." he shoveled off most of the top bones to the floor. "Oldest first. You may see some children. Each scroll details about the life, sins made consciously and unconsciously, age, death and any regrets for their actions. Twords the bottom are the words Heaven, Pergitory or Hell and a few lines for their punishment. I don't like seeing children, most are innocent but some are truly psychopathic and need to be punished accordingly." He said softly and dug out two black and white feather pens that where his mom's feathers and handed one to her. "Pick a scroll and start going. If you come across any with contract checked on the bone we'll look at it together and see if they did good with the power they received or not. Most will be in pergitory, unless their sin amount is less then a hundred, a rare occurrence mind you, they have an opportunity to be reviewed by the heavenly hosts to be accepted into heaven itself. Then you'll check heaven. Most of the time though the ink will disappear from that box meaning that they do not yet deserve that reward until they worked off their sins." He explained as he picked up a bone, opened it and tipped out the scroll. 

 

He put on glasses and started to read it quietly.

As they passed by open doors that were overflowing with a lot of paper which made her eyes go wide at the sight until they reached another office that was more organized except for the desk that was buried under what looked to be bones.

 

“Wow,” she said as she took it all in before seeing the wings. “Oh they’re beautiful,” she said as she ran a gentle hand over them before going over to the desk with him after taking in the light coming in through the windows and what seemed to be a really big window up on the roof. She wondered what the bones were for until she heard him explain after hearing what he said about there being another war and that he hated it. She nodded when told that she should look at the oldest ones first and then listened carefully as to how to check where each person should go; either purgatory, Hell, or heaven.

 

She picked up one after he was done talking and started to read one himself, reading it over carefully and then checking where that person should go before picking up the next one and doing the same thing to it.

Jach read and marked several within ten minutes, having years under his belt of doing this.  Each time one was marked, he dropped it in the air and it zoomed away filing itself away in the proper place. 

 

After about an hour or so, they had both gotten through the old ones and started on the war ones. Here he pressed a button, ordered tea for two and took off his glasses rubbing his nose. "Now here's the harder part. Ones of war tend to be tricky. None go to heaven even the innocent ones. It's hard to go through knowing this so if you want to go through the family lines in the rooms on the stairs, and organize them you can. They are families that have died out or have a few surviving members legitimate or not. If you cross check those names with ones here you can wrap it up in a bundle and send it through that shoot next to the dumbwaiter behind me. They get sent to the records room of my castle in Hell and filed away so anyone who petitions me to visit their family I can easily pick out who is where escort them accordingly. It is also a precaution for some prominent families are blessed by God and all get sent to heaven however there are a few who claimed to be of that family this keeping the records who is living and who has died, and family has completely been wiped out, then I know they are lying."

((sorry for the late reply in here. I was really busy yesterday and forgot to post early this morning. I was tired and fell asleep after posting in the other two. I was also out with my dad for Father’s Day most of the day today so that’s why I’m just now posting my response))

 

Sam continued to help him a bit longer before being told she could help organize another area instead since the next step of what they had been working on earlier was harder. She nodded i response before heading over to that area and started. To organize it.

 

((also sorry for the shortness of the post. couldn’t think of anyone else to put))

((it's alright! :) ))

 

Jach was able to get through most of the pile, but for every three he went through, six more would pop up. He then changed tactics and organized it from soldiers and bystanders, and grouped that one from elderly men and women, disabled men and women, young men and women then children. 

 

He then went through the files starting with the children and the young men and women first working his way up through the casualties of war before moving on to the soldiers.  He called her when tea and cookies arrived.

((okay :)))

 

Sam had gotten through about half of the records she was organizing, some she had put in bundles and then put in the shoot behind Jach in his office, when she heard him call for her. She went back into his office and saw that tea and cookies were there for their enjoyment. “Thanks for calling door a snack. I was starting to get a bit hungry,” she said as she sat in the chair across from him and started to enjoy the tea and a cookie. “I was possibly thinking for dinner we eat in the observatory and then sit on the roof afterward to stargaze.”

He looked up over the rims of his half moon glasses and smiled. "Sounds like a wonderful idea. The stars are in a different position now so I can show you some new ones and tell you the mythos humans came up for them. " He said biting into a cookie after dipping it in his tea. "I was getting hungry too. And a headache. Wars are so troublesome. This one is minor in terms of death rate. There was one from Troy where twenty to thirty would pop up every five minutes. Then the whole Odysseus slaughtering all of his wife's suitors... That was a complete nightmare." He sighed hevily.

“I’m glad you think it’s a good idea. Maybe we can sober dessert up there as well. I’d like that a lot,” she said before taking another sip of her tea and eating another cookie. “I can rub your shoulders to see if that’ll help relieve some of the headache you might have. I’m glad there’s not too many deaths in the one you’re reading now. Wow I bet those were really troublesome,” she said in reply to the rest of what he said after swallowing some bites of the cookie she had started to eat earlier as well as another sip of tea.

"A shoulder rub would be nice.  They where a pain. All because of Helena wanted to run away with a man her age and not be faithful to her husband. " He sighed sipping some more tea batting aside five more scrolls that appeared.

“Alright one shoulder rub coming right up. Sounds like it and hm. Sounds like a troublemaker,” she said in reply before getting up and going behind him while starting to rub his shoulders shortly afterward.

"She was. Looks like this is a land dispute-... Oh!.... Oh... Little down on the left side.. hmmm.." his head started to drop when she rubbed his shoulders sighing hevily as he relaxed. "Thanks love. How has the organization been going? You through one room yet?"

“Oh okay. Guessing those aren’t as serious,” she said before hearing him start enjoying her shoulder rub. She did as she was told and moved a bit more to the left, smiling when she noticed his shoulders dropped knowing that he was starting to relax. “You’re welcome my dear. It’s going fine and I’m halfway through the first room. It’ll take another day or so to get it completely organized before I go onto another room.” She said these last few statements in reply to the questions he asked her before leaning down to give him a small kiss on the side of his neck.

He purred and leaned back fingers on her chin gently and kissed her softly. "Glad to hear that you found something to do while I'm fixing this. Those rooms have been neglected for years because of this organization of souls takes precedence over everything. I'll still contact you when I run into a contracted soul. " He said softly. He finished his tea and cave her some cookies and kept some for himself and went back to work.

She kissed him back before letting out her own purr and then heard everything else he said afterward. “Me too and I hope it doesn’t take too long for you to get through a few more of those. Ah okay. Sounds good,” she said before taking the cookies he gave her and then went back into the room where she had been earlier to continue working on organizing it a bit more.

"I hope so too. There's like... Eight rooms of backed up records and there may be some family members here too. Should be easy to find since they are organized by last name. You can do that and double check when you get that one room organized. Sometimes if you say the name out loud they come to you like..... Echlare!" A scroll came from the 'old age' section and  landed in his open hand. It was  Maverick Echlare the builder of the estate they lived in now.

She went back over to his office when she heard everything he said and said in reply, “That’s good to know and I’ll make sure to try that later. Do you have anything in my family? Just curious. I didn’t know my grandfathers much before they died.” The question she asked was truly asked with curiosity and what she said about both grandfathers was also true. She had been too young to really remember what they were like when they had died.

"Say the name. The records are backed up by a century so you'll be able to see the line and possibly your family tree in one of the rooms. " He said softly as he returned to his work letting her do her investigation. "Genealogy is always a fascinating hobby of mine. "

“Okay,” she said in reply to everything he said in reply to her question before saying the name “Weil”. A scroll came to her and she started to read it. It had her family tree and listed everyone in it, including the grandfathers she had mentioned earlier. She sat down and read it with interest.

Along with the tree, several death records came down and plopped by her with more details about the lives of each member in the branch. Some where war heros, her quadruple great grandmother held a contract with Jach but was under a maiden name the reason was to get away from a abusive step father (who tried to become her husband after her mom died to get the money left to her) and married into the Weil family starting the company with her gift, but it would take a few generations to get to where they were today.

When she read about her grandmother getting a contract with Jach, she was surprised and then it turned into sadness when she read about her step dad abusing her. She wondered if she could meet her quadruple great grandmother and thank her for starting the family business but would ask Jach that later when they would be eating dinner and dessert while looking at the stars. After she finished reading about her family, she went back to organizing the room.

Jach was going through three or for at a time and called her for lunch but not eating his as more got piled up.  He stopped when the dinning room bell rang to notify them that dinner was ready followed by the observatory Bell letting them know that it was already inside of the tower. He called her over and went up the ladder to the glass top, lifted a hatch and was on the roof. He scooped her up and jumped spreading his wings just wide enough to glide to the next tower. He landed and went inside to eat.

Sam continued to organize the room a bit more until Jach called her for lunch. She went over to his office, got her lunch, and then went back to the room to continue working as she ate but made sure not to make a mess. When she finished eating, she set the empty plate aside before going back to work until dinner was ready and the bell was rang for it. She again went back over to his office where they climbed the ladder with him up to the glass top where he lifted the hatch. When she was up there with him, she held onto him before he scooped her up, and then went inside the observatory with him to eat.

Jach sat down to eat. "So did you  enjoy the history of your family?" He asked taking a bite of the spaghetti.  

 

((Sorry short I don't know what to say))

Sam day down beside him and said in reply after swallowing the bite of food she had put in her mouth, “I did. I had no idea though that my quadruple great grandmother had had a contract with you or that she had a power. I wonder if it’s not too late to meet her.” This very last she said was mostly said in a curious way but at the same time, she was also hoping that it would be possible.
