Zero Essay

Once Noel & I had got out of the church I presumed that Noel would have some transport of his own that we could use. I couldn't have been more wrong even if I tried. He was a few steps ahead of me, so when I stepped foot outside of the church I couldn't see where Noel had gone. After I lit a cigarette I searched the grounds quickly, which is when I found him breaking into a little garage the owners had out back.
I caught up with Noel just as he got the doors unlocked, and there it was. A huge black hearse. Our mode of transport. I didn't feel comfortable with the idea of riding around in a carriage for the dead.
'You've got to be kidding me, right'? I stated. Noel just stood there admiring the machine that was in front of us.
'Not at all...We need to get to Eden, and we're not going to get there by walking...Besides, I don't see you providing any transport'. Noel did have a point, but it didn't make the idea of joyriding in a hearse any better for me.
'Don't you think that this is in bad taste?' I asked. 'I mean, you know who is buried in Eden, right'? Noel shot me a look as if to say I was stupid. You know the kind of look I'm talking about. The look you would get from someone if you walked into a lamp post, and then honestly believed that the lamp post had jumped out of nowhere.
'You don't know Eden as well as I do, Kid'.
I remember thinking to myself that things couldn't get any worse...I just wanted to hide from this whole ordeal. It was slowly becoming too much to handle. If Noel was right about the killer wanting to destroy heaven, and possibly religion, then this was a job that was too big for little old me to handle on my own. And Noel could sense that.
'You seem quiet, Kid' He said. 'Why so silent'? I kept my head down and avoided eye contact.
'Just thinking' I replied. 'Just wish I knew what was going on'.
'You still got Uriel's book, don't you?...Why don't you have another look at it, and I'll drive. Maybe there is something that you haven't noticed yet'. Noel got into the driver's seat of the hearse, and waved me in. When I got inside I half expected the seats to be cold and uncomfortable. To my surprise they were comfortable, and not as cold as I had imagined them to be. Noel started the motor, and quietly drove us off of the grounds. Once we were on the road he picked up speed, and our mission had begun.
I didn't know how long it was going to take to find Eden, so I did as he suggested. I pulled out Uriel's book, found the page I was last on, and continued to read. His words were beginning to fascinate me....
