Epilogue


 

Red Egg Hatching

۞

One year later Thomas had a powerful dream that provided him with the confirmation he had been waiting for. Reading from his dream journal, it says: Last night I fell into a deep sleep where my dream took me back to the mountains and wide-open spaces of Upper Burma. I flew like an eagle over the heaven-reaching teak trees and through the chill of the Himalayas to the church where I found the stone, but instead of seeing the portraits of the thirteen tribes I found one portrait: one of Hanna with her glittering eyes smiling as if she were about to say something to me. I was different. My chest was bigger and stronger than I thought possible. My heart had grown so strong that it bulged from my chest and even emitted a reddish hue. I looked down on the table and saw the compass I had found in the chamber. It pointed directly at Hanna. I landed on the alter where I reached out to touch her cheek. That's when I woke up.

A month later, Thomas flew to Rangoon and took a plane instead of the train, landing in Myskyina where he stayed at the same hotel. He walked to the church unannounced as there was no way of contacting Hanna. With his beard full grown and looking like Jesus, he was careful to watch out for the Reverend but fortunately he found Hanna teaching a class. Thomas stood at the door watching her until she looked over and saw him. Covering her mouth with her hand, she blushed as tears welled up in her eyes. Her students looked blank-faced at him with his big brown beard standing in the doorway.

"I told you I would come back and find you."

"You have! You've found me!" She ran to him and wrapped her arms around his shoulders, burying her face into his neck so that he could smell her hair.

"Quis separabit?" he asked, trying his hand at some Latin.

"Nemo separabit," she replied. "No one will separate us." Some of the children began to snicker and laugh but they they hugged and kissed and cried. Soon the classroom applauded and some of the more daring boys threw erasers.

"Heaven on earth," he said. "It's time to celebrate!" That was the moment Thomas knew his has mended.
