Haniel and Ashima arrived at a small village in Syria. They went
to the inn by the little village square. The inn was very ragged. At the inn a young woman worked. She was the only one
who worked there. Her name was Dido. And she served them food. And Haniel found her very beautiful. And so did she
After eating, Haniel carried sleepy Ashima to the bed in her room. He then
went back down to Dido. And they talked for a long time. And they fell in love. And they made love.
In the morning when they had all woken up, four soldiers entered the inn. They
were evil. Dido had to serve them food. But the soldiers wanted to rape her. But Ashima, who was watching, hiding in the kitchen,
knew that she could heal the soldiers, like she had done before. She knew that she could take their evil away. And she opened
her heart and sent out to them her loving energy. And it worked indeed. The soldiers all began to cry.
But then the raging face of Jehovah appeared before her eyes. He hurt her. He
drained her of her energy. And Ashima fell to the floor unconscious. For Jehovah is a violent God. And He is
a selfish God, who could not stand Ashima sharing her love with anyone other than Him. In His eyes, she belonged
solely to Him.
And one of the soldiers raised his sword against Dido. And Haniel rushed to save
her. And Haniel killed three of the soldiers with his sword. And Dido killed one.
And Haniel and Dido fled the village, for they knew that more soldiers soon
would come, and they would hunt them then. And they put Ashima on a donkey. And after half a day, Ashima woke up. And
Haniel was very relieved. And they wandered through the desert.
They came to the city of Hama, in the very heart of the Syrian land. It
was a very big city. Tens of thousands of people lived there. There were stones on the main streets, and more houses than
Ashima had ever seen before. And the city square was huge. And there was a big market, where hundreds of voices were shouting.
It was very overwhelming. And there were inns. Many inns. And they looked for an inn that could need some help and where they
perhaps could live and feed in exchange for their work. In five inns by the square they were turned down. But
at an inn at a dark street away from the square, they found a small and ragged little inn. There they went in. And they met
a man there. A silent and grumpy man. And he said that he could use some help. And they got a small little dark room
to share on the upper floor on the inn where they were allowed to live all three.
