Heavenly Journey


Puzzle ID:#31775

1) It all began when I carried the water from the well to my home.

2) That task completed, I jumped into the river and swam free, like I belonged, yet soon it was time to climb out.

3) I found myself in a field, crouched low to the ground. I was strangely possessive of this small field, and I could feel the anger bursting out of me as others came.

4) I jumped into the next field, I stood proud, ruler of all I surveyed. If the anger had teased me before, it now tortured my very soul, and I would gladly have died to protect that small piece of land.

5) Was I losing my mind? I was looking at myself, not in a mirror, but a living copy. The anger had disappeared and we both felt a warmth from the obvious bond between us.

6) I walked back to the river, crawling among the rocks on the bank, then walking underwater.

7) I walked out on the other side of the river, and felt the weight of a crown on my head. Yes, I was the King, I feared nothing, I bowed to no one. I needed to proclaim to everyone I now ruled this realm, and as I roared my message the ground shook with fear.

8) The crown grew heavy, so I removed it, and as I did I felt such pure clarity of thought. Had I returned to my childhood, or was this some innocence long forgotten but not lost?

9) I walked on and saw an argument between a trader and his customer. I felt duty bound in some way to offer help and sat with them whilst I listened to both sides of the story. I gave my judgement, which they accepted, and continued my journey.

10) The heat blistered me, and I...... I was standing in the middle of a desert. I felt vulnerable, naked, but powerful. Others sensed that power and were avoiding me. Sometimes even the weak can have a sting in the tail for those trying to take advantage.

11) My whole body then focused. I had been wandering, meandering even but now I knew my target. I marched on quickly, arrowing in on the goal, but I was beginning to tire.

12) My journey had brought me to a mountainside. How long had I been gone? My beard had grown several inches and I would have gladly stopped there and then. Those glorious, green pastures up the mountain were a wonderful sight and I sat and looked down into the valley. I sensed someone else nearby, a danger possibly, my instincts now took over and I ran towards them as fast as I could.

We collided, and as I found my bearings I realised I was back carrying the water. Oh cruel fate, that holds my destiny in this vicious circle.

Please tell me where I am trapped.

Nice Teaser. It was very hard, and pretty fun. I liked it. I got a laugh out of me.

I found the answer a bit odd. Liked trying to decipher the story. Read it several times to no avail.

Good one!

It started as one big story, but the eds broke it up and numbered it. It probably makes it clearer and better spaced but less of an ongoing saga. Glad a lot of you are enjoying it.
