When a King is not a King (a Fiction)

“I'm scared,” Mike confessed as Pete opened the door for him. Both men walked into the simple office.

“You should be a little scared,” Mike offered.

Pete was brief and to the point. “It says here that people knew you as the king.”

“Yes, I am the king,” replied Mike.

Pete looked at him for a moment as if he was trying to decide something. “Okay, I'm going to do something I don't usually do.” Pete got up and walked to the door. “This way,” he said as he opened the door. Mike followed Pete down a long corridor to large arched door. “Are you ready?” Pete asked Mike.

“For what?” Mike asked back.

Without reply, Pete opened the door.

Mike went from scared to terrified and fell to the floor.

And when the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, to Him who lives forever and ever, the twenty four elders will fall down before Him who sits on the throne, and will worship Him who lives forever and ever, and will cast their crowns before the throne saying,

“Worthy are You, our Lord and our God,
to receive glory and honor and power;
for You created all things
and because of Your will they existed,
and were created” Revelation 4:9-11
