    The room displayed a huge, dank, stone fireplace in the center of the back wall. To the left was a door, possibly to its sister room. Between the other door and the one I currently stood in was a large, thick table of some kind of dark wood. To the right, and more centered in the room in front of the fireplace, were a throw rug and a couple of sitting chairs. This room was the most elegant thus far.

    A broad, crystalline chandelier hung in the direct center of the room. Looking at the walls of the room, my gaze fell upon a portrait. Intrigued, I entered the room and walked toward it.

    His presence, not the chandelier, lit the room. It changed everything from rusted, worn, broken and aged to shiny, smooth, bright and new. The fireplace flared up into a roaring blaze, burning wood that, a moment ago, was ashes. The rug and all things within the room lit up with sparkling brightness, clean and new, rich in colors and reflected vivid contrasts.

    He’s a…

    My vision blurred and my feet dropped out from under me as I fell.
