Today the Lord tasked me to organize the Heavenly Library. The Heavenly Library is the largest, and probably the only existing, library in the universe; it has millions of millions of scrolls and books dating from the beginning of the universe itself. Any non-angelic being, if there was one out there, would think that it is impossible to organize such a ridiculously numerous collection of writings, but we Angels don't think the same. It take us a whole day, but I don't mind if that means the Lord will be satisfied, that's all that matters for me. To satisfy the Lord and nothing else. My fellow Archangel Annabelle has offered to help me, but I have politely declined, I knew she had probably much more important things to do, anyway.
Besides, there is not much that can go wrong.
I have found something interesting.
After organizing the Heavenly Library all day, there was only one place I had yet to check: The Forbidden Writings. The truth is I don't even know why those writings are forbidden at all,
I doubt the High One has anything to hide from us, and sometimes I've even dared to consider taking a peek into one of those scrolls, but Alas, I shall not, for it would displease the High One.
However, when I was accommodating a pile of scrolls, one particular scroll called my attention. Unlike the other scrolls, this one had a black tie around it, and the paper was almost of a dark, yellowish tint. I assumed it was very old, but I didn't understand why I felt attracted to it, as if the scroll wanted me to read it. While I continued with my work, my curiosity increased as the scroll called to me, and I noticed that the further I was, the stronger the aura became, as if the scroll wanted to call my attention.
When I was done, I was about to leave when the scroll once again started emitting a very strong aura that called for me. I tried to resist, but the aura was to powerful, God forgive me, I could not resist any longer and snuck the scroll under my wing and then left the Forbidden Writings and the Heavenly Library as fast as I could. It was night already, and every angel was already asleep, but the Lord wasn't. He never slept, or so I have heard, he was always watching over us with his loving gaze.
For the first time in my entire existence I wished that he didn't. If he discovered me, I would be severely punished, but sincerely, I would gladly accept it for what I'm doing right now. Even though the scroll's aura is so attracting that I can't bring myself to take it back to the Forbidden Writings, I shall put it away where I will never think of it again.
But... something inside me keeps urging me to read it.
