Dimia: STOP IT!
The young sister raises and stands up. Her breathing has changed. She breathes agitatedly. Her chest takes over her flow of inhale, carrying all the pain and anger in it. Dimia gazes around. She sees the light of the day, the green grass, the sanctuary. They are all here. She breathes and tries to calm herself.
With her eyes wide open, some tears escape. All her senses were focus on the moment created by Palacia. Dimia is furious and scowls at her sister.
Dimia: I trusted you and you make me feel… so empty… so HOPELESS!
Palacia: GOOD! You just learn to empathize! This is how Taz felt when you booby-trap him!
Palacia points,with her hand, to the sphynx cat. Dimia looks a Taz. The feline has an innocent, joyful gaze. Dimia remembers that Taz was terrified earlier this day! Dimia’s perception starts to widen.
Dimia: How can he feel the same things we do?
Palacia: Taz is a spirit; as you and me! He is a state-2 nonetheless… but he is growing as a spirit! You already grown that state
Dimia: What do you mean?
Palacia: You are a state-3 spirit! Guess what you were before that?
Dimia: I was a CAT?!
Palacia places her hand across her face. Her little sister’s answer leaves Palacia speechless.
Palacia: You were a state-2 spirit, stupid! You might have been all animals, till you understood and learned the values of life and could ascend to the next state! The spirit moves on after death! The energy remains… the material part does not!
Dimia begins to logically understand the connection between her and other living things! They are similar somehow! She gazes at Taz and begins to feel guilty for what she did to him! Dimia quickly grabs Taz! With her warm intention, she starts to caress the feline!
Dimia: Don’t worry my fellow brother cat… I will take care of you and teach you the values of life!
Palacia does not enjoy watching her sister caressing her cat.
Palacia: He is my disciple… get your own!
Dimia: He likes me!
