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.

“Caitlynn, it is not that easy. It is to keep you safe. You are not ready for any other world than your own yet, just like Tedd. It is not to punish or restrain you in any way. Please. Please go back to bed before you hurt yourself.” His voice was so pleading that I didn’t know what to do. So I just did as he says, and went back to bed.

 

The next morning when I wake up, he is gone. He stayed there long, at least until I went back to sleep. When I sat up in the bed, my eyes fell on a note on my pillow. Go to school, it says. I frown, obviously it’s from Audrey, and I actually don’t feel too bad. So I got up and dressed in a pair light blue jeans and a grey hoodie. Downstairs, I found Stella in the kitchen with Arianna. At the sight of me, Stella smiled.

“You look better. Feeling ready for school?” she asked, and I nodded, smiling back. No reason to make her feel like she was not doing a great job, because she did. I ate my breakfast while half-playing with Arianna, and then went to brush my hair and teeth and so on. For once, I did not put my hair up. I didn’t see the point, I was going to half-sleep through the day anyway, might as well have as much of a cover as possible. I threw on my usual makeup, and then went upstairs to get my backpack. My cellphone was as empty as ever. No messages, no missed calls, no nothing. I let out a small sigh, then dump it into the bag.

When walking to school, I skipped the way around the lake. Instead I took the long way around, through the roads. It felt safer.

The classroom was half-filled when I got there. I found a seat in the back corner by the window. I sat down, looking out the next couple of minutes until the teacher arrived. I didn’t look away. I was oddly fascinated by a blackbird in a tree, jumping around on a branch.

I heard the usual sound of girls gossiping and looked at the other end of the classroom, where the girls were crowding their usual tables. The teacher made his I-really-do-not-your-attention-sound, and I moved my eyes to him.

“We have two new students from today. I will ask you to take good care of both of them. Now, boys, would you please introduce yourself?” he said, and I switched my attention to the two boys beside him. Then my mouth fell open.

What in the world are you two doing here?! My mind-call screamed at them, but was ignored by both as Audrey introduced himself.

“Hello. I’m Audrey. I just moved here from California and… well, there’s not much to tell, really.” He said, making it obvious that he was not going to say any more. I swear that two of the girls almost fainted. And I’ll admit, he did look good. His usual clothing, a black t-shirt, white jeans and a dark blue leather jacket stood in sharp contrast to his white hair and pail skin. When he stood beside Tedd, he looked like a piece of paper.

“’Ello,” Tedd said, catching my eye and I couldn’t help but smile. “I’m Tedd. I’m a trouble kid, and transferred here because my old school could not handle my awesomeness.” His eyes sparkled with the hint of a real troublemaker. He had dressed himself in a washed-down green hoodie and dark jeans.
