Twelves - Chapter Eight continuing

 Suleiman has climbed the steps to Lahash’s Temple. As he reaches the top he hears a loud buzzing sound. Suddenly thousands of flies exit the cave mouth! The swarm of flies attacks Suleiman. As he attempts to fight them off Suleiman says a silent pray, “Lord, if it be your will, protect your servant.” As suddenly as the flies appear the swarm dissipates and disappears into the mountains.

Suleiman coughs up flies that had found their way in his mouth. Just then, he hears a deep rumbling sound much more powerful than the flies had made. Then the ground begins to vibrate as if something massive was moving towards him and before he can move…

Twelves - Chapter Eight

 Emily and Suleiman spend the next two hours climbing the stairs carved into the rocks ascending higher and deeper into the Atlas Mountains. As they round bend in the stair case they are surprised to find…”A temple!” exclaims Emily, “A temple of Lahash by the looks of markings on the obelisks.”

“Quite.” observes Suleiman, “I’ll take quick look around to figure out how to proceed. Why don’t you find a perch overlooking the temple and provide me cover if I need it.”

“You’re not going in are you?” queries Emily.

“No. Just going to scout around to see what we’re up against. Lahash is a powerful demon in the spiritual realm. I can’t imagine what physical manifestation would be able to hold that much evil. But, I don’t want to find out either.”

Emily smiles, “I don’t want you too either.” Emily scampers up a nearby cliff and signals Suleiman she’s ready.
