1. Silver Blood

I stared at Vangelis, so helpless laying on the ground, his uniform stained with mud from the hard falling rain and a long gash under his piercing blue eye that flowed blood down the right side of his face. He stared at me horridly, his lip trembling as I clutched the dagger in my hand over my shoulder, yet I wasn’t going to end his pain just yet.  Sitting on top of him, I stroked Vangelis’ feathered wings, a pure white, just as most angels had, and grasped on the feathers. Vangelis’ eyes widened, full of hatred and displeasure.

 

                I pulled out one of them, making Vangelis cringe as I stroked the feather’s soft edges. Somewhere inside me, I wished my angel wings could be white.  Blood was already sneaking through the empty patch as I tore away three or four more feathers, and tears filled his eyes. Once he was in pain, and I had stripped thirty or so feathers, I stood, diving the dagger into his heart. I moved it around inside him, then pulling it out so I admire the silver angel blood.

 

                Something about their blood was fascinating, hinting a glow and aura that was very powerful, yet there was a force much greater. I dug the dagger around so that I could pull out his heart , a shining gold. No doubt that Vangelis was dead, so that he couldn’t live to tell my tale, I heard footsteps wandering the garden.

 

                Surprised, I grabbed my dagger, his heart, and a small canteen that I had filled with his blood and jumped into a tree to watch the guards surround Vangelis’ body.  They bickered for a moment before one left and the other bent over his body. I grabbed an arrow from my a pouch I had tied around my waist and threw with dexterous skill so that it punctured the guard’s heart, making him fall to the ground.

 

                Smiling, I launched myself into the air, my violet wings carrying me along the wind towards the cave on the far side of a valley. There, my clients were waiting, as they were very busy dragons.
