Through the gates.

" Welcome, you are almost at the gates of heaven. Now all you have to do is go to this spot and someone will come to get you" said the man

‌‌" oh cool alright, wait fuck am I dead?" He asked

‌‌" yeap, someone will explain when you get there," said the man

‌‌He started walking towards the spot marked on the map. When he got there he could see the gates right in front of him.

‌‌The gates were closed but he could still see right through them, everything behind them. Excited, he puffed up a cloud and sat down to wait.

‌‌Suddenly after waiting for hours, the cloud where he sat started to move away from the gates.

‌‌Confused, he got up and started walking again, after a while he saw the man again.

‌‌" Welcome! Now all you have to do is go to this spot and someone will come to get you" repeated the man

‌‌" wait but I just did and nothing happened," he said

‌‌" don't worry, someone will come to get you and explain," said the man

‌‌He started walking again towards the gates.

‌‌" Alright, this time," he said

‌‌He got there and watched through the gates at everything that was on the other side.

‌‌There was a noise to his right and when he looked back the gates were gone. He got up and started walking and he reached the man again.

‌‌" Welcome! now all you have to do is go to this spot and someone will come to get you and let you in," said the man

‌‌" But I… am I doing something wrong? Am I missing something? Is this the last prank before heaven kinda thing?" He asked jokingly

‌‌" don't worry someone will come to get you and explain everything," said the man

‌‌Days passed and it all repeated.

‌‌" Man, can I just do something else? I don't even care anymore if I get in" he said

‌‌The man took out a cigarette and lit it by putting his thumb in front of it. " Welcome!" He said taking a drag and taking his wings off like a backpack to scratch his back

‌‌" Truth is… you made it" he said letting go of the smoke " just not to those gates, now all you have to do is go to the spot… but no one is coming," said the man killing the cigarette with the bottom of his shoe and putting the wings back on "now I have to erase your memory…Every Time you lose hope you know part of the routine"

‌‌"See you in a bit…and welcome," he said, flicking the butt to the side.
