He was Gabriel of the Cherubim, he was Djibril of the El-Karrubiyan, those brought near to Allah... he soared through the first sunrise and sang his joy to the first-born of the world, and every living thing learned how to smile. He'd walked through Babylon with roses in his hair. He'd given the Sumerians Water of Life. He'd covered stirring sleepers with his wings beneath the Pyramids... it was the will of the Lord. And... He'd bathed in Assyrian blood, spiked Egyptian infants high on spears, torn eyes and guts and ribs and jaws from bodies of still-living men. Sodom and Gomorrah died in an apocalyptic fire, though why one man should not have another, he didn't know, just did as he was bid - the will of the Lord. He'd committed rape behind a carpenter's in Nazareth, and began a cycle of agony that ended on a hill above Jerusalem... the will of the Lord. It was not for him to doubt. Everything was the Creator's will. Nothing surprised the Lord of Hosts.
