The Llakor Project - Year Two
Chapter Nine: This is Lazarus


“Hello”

“This is Lazarus from Kansas City. I need to speak to a Michael Blade.”

“How interesting. Michael is not here right now, but he will be back soon. But I have never heard him speak of a Lazarus, either from Kansas City or anywhere else.”

“That may be because Lazarus is my middle name.”

“I see. And your first name is?”

“’When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.’”

“Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians. I admire your erudition, if not the relevance of your quotation.”

“My apologies. I was referring to the fact that my first name was the name of my first life. My new name is the name of my middle life.”

“I see. You are a philosopher. I knew an Irish man who was a philosopher.”

“All the Irish are either philosophers or sober.”

“AH! Now that is an excellent quotation. Was that Oscar Wilde?”

“Not that I know of.”

“Who said it then?”

“Me. Just now.”

“I see. Interesting. Mr. Lazarus, you intrigue me. Few people do more than bore me. Still, I have heavy business to undertake. If you will excuse me, I will tell my nephew Michael, that a Mr. Lazarus from Kansas City is looking for him. He can call you back at the number that you are calling from?”

“For the next twenty-four hours.”

“Very well. I bid you a good day on your road to your personal Damascus, Mr. Lazarus.”

“Good day, Uncle.”

I read parts of it a few years ago - my best friend has it. The reason it's so much is that the book was pulled from the shelves after parts of it were found to be untrue and libel. So it's a "collector's item".
