Clautreax Possible NDE

This lasted, and lasted...

Suddenly a shadow started walking on my right side.
That lasted some time, and I was more and more happy, without pain anywhere...
And the shadow at my side spoke to me, asking... "Are you sure you want to go on?"
I went on a few paces... then I turned around, without replying, and began to go back where I had come from.
