"You were a hero." copyright protection26PENANAMiKxWn6PGR

"It's not every day you meet a real champ." copyright protection26PENANASp2NOYYcGp

"When they join you here, they're going to be so proud." copyright protection26PENANAqWUEN922Sn

"And you.  How did you die?" the golden winged warden asked. copyright protection26PENANAaEFUbCiisZ

Tori frowned.  "I… uh…  I don’t know?" copyright protection26PENANAakoc8da7qR

"It's okay," the warden assured.  "It'll come to you eventually.  Guys, it's time for your initiation to the afterlife!" copyright protection26PENANAwRNrvBAxEt

Tori took a deep breath and along with the three other newly deceased, followed the warden down the hall to the theatre room.  Inside, there was a giant projector screen with the words "Welcome to DEATH!" projected across it. copyright protection26PENANAVP7AKid2BF

"Alright, guys, time to watch your death tapes.  I find it's the best way to get to know your new friends," the warden smiled.  "Now, the reason you were all assigned together was that your circumstances were similar.  Now, Stevens, you're up!" copyright protection26PENANA2L0rX9F8g5

Stevens was a crack jumbo jet pilot who crash-landed his 747.  According to the warden, everyone else survived because of him. copyright protection26PENANAZNWNfsoQZ2

Nikki broke the ladies record for bench press just before the equipment failed and crushed her to death.  Talk about being a real champ. copyright protection26PENANAjVSqvCJJFk

Felix was a Marine who saved ten hostages in Libya before the terrorists mowed him down with machine gun fire. copyright protection26PENANApH5p93zOcP

And Tori, you ask?  Well, she didn't even remember how she died.  Mind you, she remembered signing a record label with Sony Pictures at twelve, but that didn't feel so heroic. copyright protection26PENANAUbDQYSinIi

"It's Pastoral's turn!" the warden cheered. copyright protection26PENANAq1disJUbsz

"Please call me Tori," Tori said.  The warden ignored her. copyright protection26PENANAwRhChqGQfS

A bar filled the screen.  A woman in a bright red dress and burgundy lipstick smiled at Tori.  "I love your voice, sweetheart," she said. copyright protection26PENANAG93kZ2dipW

"Oh, thank you," she said.  "It's a beautiful piano, too." copyright protection26PENANABQYP8qy3C1

"Let me buy you a drink," the woman offered.  "One Long Island Iced Tea for the next Adele!" copyright protection26PENANAC8TULbkr2A

"Wait, stop.  I'm not–" Tori protested, pulling out her wallet. copyright protection26PENANAjIJn3Jpg2P

"Sweetie, that's not how the world works," the woman chuckled, pushing away Tori's license.  "If no one asks, don't tell." copyright protection26PENANAdDGbtOC2Re

The bar tender slid the tall glass down the bar and Tori picked it up.  Abruptly, the playback ended. copyright protection26PENANA3unXo99JAb

"Oh, it seems Pastoral's isn't loading," the warden frowned. copyright protection26PENANAkTU3hXNHeP

"Excuse me, it's Tori, please," Tori insisted.  "Um, and why isn't it working?" copyright protection26PENANAwrtcDW1fZT

"Well, this system can only replay events you remember, and it appears you don't remember how you died." copyright protection26PENANAu3nS0M19wB

"But I want to know!"  Tori said. copyright protection26PENANAlQvfTNcHur

"Let go of it, girl," Nikki said, doing wall pushups.  "We get it.  You were boring." copyright protection26PENANAw1T0ewXfMW

"Hey–" Tori protested. copyright protection26PENANA9hZwaZjb9P

"Alright, step two, kiddies," the warden shouted.  "Geography!" copyright protection26PENANANuFjJz6WgA

The warden led them out of the theater and into a classroom with one table, four chairs, and a SMART Board.  It showed seven layers, with a dot on the fourth-to-the-top layer reading "You Are Here." copyright protection26PENANAoNChOQOL6B

"This top layer, layer one, is Earth.  If you're alive, you'll be there.  I don't think any of us are suffering that problem," the warden joked.  "And here, layer seven, is what most consider 'Hell.'" copyright protection26PENANAHfTGM3G5eQ

"Then what's here?"  Stevens asked. copyright protection26PENANAV2kBl4as1r

"We're in Upper Purgatory.  Both level four and five are considered purgatory and are almost identical," the warden said.  "Level three is Heaven, and level six is pre-Hell.  Trust me, that's a bad place to fall into." copyright protection26PENANA3pfFH3wwOC

"Fall?"  Tori asked. copyright protection26PENANA8wS1cE4TKj

"Ah, yes.  All levels, except for the first, connected-floating plates.  There are many gaps in each plate where one can fall through to a lower level," the warden explained.    "And that brings us to the next step – wings." copyright protection26PENANAJFl4hH9rab

"Wings?" everyone spontaneously cut in. copyright protection26PENANATdB9TicpP1

"Ah, yes.  All deceased get wings," the warden said, showing off her golden ones.  "They're like angels' wings except the angels are better.  For one, they aren't dead humans." copyright protection26PENANA2XxUZKz3Ej

"Are you a dead human?"  Felix asked. copyright protection26PENANAnoZJtgrCIB

"Absolutely.  Been dead since 1845," the warden cheered.  "Go team ghost!"  No one laughed. copyright protection26PENANAOCOpLHIY6x

"So depending on how worthy you are, you get different powered wings.  They help you escape the pull of the level 7, you know," the warden winked.  "Wings will show up around a day or so.  Before that, don't leave the house." copyright protection26PENANAZ9vx3uiCyX

"The house?"  Tori asked. copyright protection26PENANAWWlVFOc6rU

"Well, you have to live somewhere," the warden said.  "Now, time to enjoy death!  Shoo!" copyright protection26PENANAHfwvEidngk

Suddenly, the four of them appeared in a living room of a large house.   Stevens sighed.  "What the–" ​​copyright protection26PENANAUgtqNxV69t
