As By Fire

I found myself in a large room filled to capacity with people. We were waiting for something. I knew what it was, but for some unknown reason I didn't remember at the time. It's not that I forgot, really, but I was so fascinated with the people and the room that the reason for my presence seemed secondary to my surroundings.

The room itself was enormous. I could hardly see the other end. In fact, I couldn't be sure there was another end.

But there was an end on this side which was visible to me. Yet the walls were transparent and there was nothing beyond them, nothing at all.

The floor was soft like down and fluffy like clouds giving a feeling of walking on air.

The ceiling was completely absent as it disappeared into nothingness. In reality the room did not seem like a room and yet it was... a room for waiting.
