Wind, percussion, brass, stringed instruments and the bass guitar! Joe and Joanna sat motionless at the foot of the phenomenal mountain savoring the sweet melody within the tantalizing ambiance surrounding them as they waited for their guide to attend to them. Their compelling excavation had been eventful; going back on time to mount beetroot. It was such a breathtaking moment, one they wished they could behold forever.
Just then, the guide approached and served them portions of olive juice and excused himself once more. The scenery was awe-inspiring in beauty and splendor, the multitude of seekers from all corners of the world incredible. Word came through the public address system the movie would be screened shortly. Droves of people streamed in to the ancient site and took their seats in the magnificent cave-like auditorium.
The drums rumbled on as the reverence glowing from the glorious orchestra filled the air. There was a joyous, almost physically tangible presence one wanted to perpetually embrace. Joe felt a leap within his inner self as he captured a view of potato delicacies lining the auditorium entrance.
“Potatoes!” He calmly exclaimed.
“What?!” Enquired Joannah.
“Nothing! Oh! Yes! The bass guitar! It’s killing me! It’s melting my heart! Did you hear that modulation a while ago?”
“Yea right!” Mused Joannah. “How many meals must you have in one day?”
Alpha the majestic rose to the podium engulfed in a gleaming radiance amidst shouts of applause from the massive crowd. Many were pressing forth to catch a glimpse of him.

One could not miss the inviting generous beam that characterized his expressions.
“Today, we embark on a defining journey that will change the destiny of humanity.

The orchestra was still audible in a steady tempo somewhere in the background.
“Three times slick the intricate unsuccessfully attempted to thwart my mission recently. We must all understand a panic-stricken adversary will mount a sustained effort to trounce any vulnerable target. It is only natural for him. But we must nevertheless be armed so, not only to resist his warfare but to go all the way and successfully lay hold of the golden promise up for grabs to every one of you listening today.
“Nations await with colossal expectancy for the glorious unveiling of the victorious ones. I’m sure it is the same dream shared for every one of you here today.

Fret not, for the lessons of consecutive seasons will broaden your view of my greatness and securely plant you in me. You will be a healing fragrance as you unite and gather with me.

“This calls for celebration!” Continued Joe. “I will be at the entrance!”
