Mrs. Cartwright and The Pygmies

By David N. Lewis

Paranormal, Action & adventure, Fantasy, Young adult | eBook


Long ago, in a land far away a text was penned that foretold the future. Though many ancient authors have claimed legitimacy, this ancient text has proven to be one hundred percent accurate in every detail. But, some of the hidden mysteries remain behind the veil of time, at least for now. One prophesy foretold of a series of worldwide calamities that would be precursors to the culmination of all history- His return. Whether symbolic or literal, one of the pivotal events was described as the arrival in series of four horsemen. Poetically, they are referred to as the ‘Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.” The first horseman of the Apocalypse is mentioned in a part of the ancient text referred to as the Revelation of John, chapter 6: “I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest.” The second horseman of the Apocalypse appears in the same text a few verses later. “Then another horse came out, a fiery red one. Its rider was given power to take peace from the earth and to make men slay each other. To him was given a large sword.” The third horseman is described as well. “...and there before me was a black horse! Its rider was holding a pair of scales in his hand. Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, ‘A quart of wheat for a day's wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!’” The fourth horseman mentioned so cryptically is described as Death. “I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.” These terrifying events are not the end, but, the beginning of even worse judgments that come later during the global times of ‘trouble.’ It is upon this impending doom and backdrop of apocryphal events that this story is woven; a story, though fiction, founded on the solid premise that the ancient text known as the Holy Bible was right. The characters in the story told here stand on the precipice of history on the edge of a trail of tears and a mountain of jubilation. However, before the laughter, the tears must come. This is where the story begins- at the tears.
