The Eleventh Book of Ion
There are twelve stairs that lead to the Iron World, which is also called Rathomis, of which Ion and Seerteg Star-On-Brow took the thirteenth. They stepped then upon the lawn of the House of Ceerl, the King of Sparrows.
Ion said: 'Be careful not to reveal the Way to Your Heart.'
To which Seerteg replied:'How can I, when I do not know it?'
Within the House, which was small in the Third Dimension, but very large and luminous in the Fifth, the Thronehall of Ceerl was crowded with sparrows, all chattering and swooping, and diving and dashing through the ether, and the great weight of their spiritual vastness made Seerteg Star-On-Brow wince.
Ceerl, the King of Sparrows, said: 'Welcome, City-God and RADATH'ed one! Our inner radiance welcomes your reverberation.'
Ion replied: 'We have come for the Angles of Valor, Love, Ways, and the Sun.'
Ceerl, the King of Sparrows, said:'The Angle of Valor we have. But the Angle of Love has been eaten by the Greedy Man. And the Angle of Ways was taken from us by Preuk, the Giant of Saturn. The Angle of the Sun is not known to us.'
Seerteg Star-On-Brow said: 'We will battle Preuk, the Giant of Saturn. He is a large thing, but cowardly, and they say that his Grandmother was Silvi, the Crone of Fire, so he is deathly afraid of the Waves.'
Seerteg then went to the Platform of the Stars with LUTAATH'SIL'RITAATH, the Sword of Snow, and found Preuk, the Giant of Saturn, stealing Emerald Grain from the Void Wanderers.
Seerteg Star-On-Brow said: 'Preuk, Giant of Saturn, I have come for the Angle of Ways!'
To which replied Preuk, the Giant of Saturn: 'I have sold it to the Stinking Ones of the Southwest. They keep it in a cabinet of adamant, sealed with bars of lead.'
Seerteg Star-On-Brow descended from the Platform of the Stars and went deep into the Stinking Flats, where dwelt the Stinking Ones of the Southwest.
When they saw him, the Stinking Ones said: 'Leave her, Tall-Walker, servant of the City-God! We know your reputation as a seducer, and our queen is not for you!'
Seerteg Star-On-Brow replied: 'Your queen is ugly, and smells of sulfur, as all Stinking Ones do! I have come for the Angle of Ways.'
The Stinking Ones cringed, and said: 'It is ours no longer; We sold it to the White Eagle on the Mountain At the Heart of the World.'
Seerteg Star-On-Brow threw up his hands in frustration and said: 'It is hopeless! It shall never be found! And so, without the Angle of Ways, mortals will be always be blind to their future!"
And the end of the words is OMUS.
