Heavenly Worries

Harold was glad he wasn't subject to the delusion of Heaven. Knowing it existed (for a saintly few after the apocalypse) was one thing, but believing in a Heavenly afterlife was quite another. It hadn't always been this was. He's been a staunch supporter of the concept of Heaven-when-you-die as a child, though it used to worry him a little. What if he got married and his wife died. She'd wait for him in Heaven, sure, but what if he remarried? Would he spend eternity with both women? What if they didn't like each other? What if his first wife was angry at him for marrying again?

He was almost glad to discover the truth about Heaven and Hell. At least as a future overlord of Hell he didn't have such dilemmas!
