The Guardian Angel

Sixteen year old Caitlynn lost both her parents and her younger brother in a car accident. She has now been adopted by her aunt and uncle. She is looking forward to a hard life, but what happens when she meets Tedd, a kind but quite weird boy, and the mysterious Audrey, who tells her a story about different worlds, a kingdom, angels and God?

Note: I put the chapters up as pages - so each chapter is approximately one page in my Word document. AND, sorry for typos and mistakes - I rarely look back at it, so please forgive me.

“My brother…” my voice was hoarse, like I hadn’t been using it for a while. Understanding dawned on his face, but instead of saying anything, he just nodded and then put his hand back on my hair. “How long have I been sleeping?” I asked, looking out the window. It was still dark out, so it could either be a couple of hours, or more than a day. I had a feeling it would be the latter.

“Since last night. I made Stella think you were ill… well, wasn’t much of a lie, really. She was up here shortly to look at you, but don’t worry, she didn’t see me, just you sleeping and a note saying you would like to stay home from school today to sleep the illness out.” He answered. I couldn’t help but smile. “She didn’t take much convincing, really, since you had a burning fever, so she wrote back that you should just take all the time you needed.”

“You are a genius. I actually got to skip a full day of school?” I smile weakly. Holy mother of God I was pathetic. Despite that, he broke into a smile, even a light laugh.

“You seem just a tad too happy about that.” He says.

“School is awful. You have no idea how terrible the other students are. I feel sorry for the teachers.”

“Stay in school.” He says with a smile, tugging the cover around me. I do a little pout.

“Why do I have to?”

“We have to keep your cover going, don’t we?”

“Couldn’t we just fake my dead so I could be a magician in another world full-time?”

Audrey broke into a smile. “No. We can’t just do that. Imagine the uproar it would create. I know you’re not that much of an attention seeking kid.”

“But I can do magic. Why not just let me do it full-time?”

“Because that is how it is. You have to have a normal life. Otherwise this would drive faster than you can run.” He said, not smiling anymore. My smile dropped as well, the good atmosphere gone. I looked away.

“I just don’t see the reason. Why would I keep up my half-broken, boring life, when I could have one filled with magic and fun?” I asked, looking at the ceiling. I hear him sigh and I turn my head back to him. “No. I mean it. I’m an orphan, taken in by a family who didn’t even have room for me in their house. I am resented by the only young people I have any contact to, except for Tedd, and he is almost a part of that magical world that you are denying me from entering. I am not happy here.” I fought back the lump in my throat, and then used all my strength to sit up, before realizing that I was not wearing anything but my bra, and quickly pulled the cover over my chest. I jumped out of bed, draping the cover around my torso, walking toward the window. I could hear Audrey behind me, and when he reached out to grab me, I jumped out of reach.

“No. It’s my life, my happiness, my choice! If I really am this priestess, wouldn’t you have to obey me?” I demanded to know. I could see the pain register at his face, and I knew that I had hurt him terribly. Again. But right then, I did not care. I couldn’t believe that he was trying to keep me from the most perfect life I could imagine.
