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.

“So, where do you go to school?” I asked him, changing the subject.

“Well, ehm… I don’t really go ta school, I always skip classes, the teachers’ picking on me a lot, and the other students, too, because I’m not real good at anything.”

I frowned at him. I had always been good in school, so I hadn’t really tried that, but I did know that it couldn’t be very nice to experience. We had one in my old class that was bullied a lot, and he rarely came to school.

I didn’t get to answer him before the whole house was shaking and a noise so high that my ears hurt, rumbled around us. Suddenly the window beside me crashed as a black shadow burst through the glass, making it breaking into little pieces of razor-like splinters, which I felt attaching itself to me newly healed scar on my neck, my arm and the rest of the right side of my body. I heard Ted roar in agony, as he most likely was hit by the glass, too. The house stopped shaking, but the noise kept going on, sounding like an earthquake. I lifted my head up and tried to open my eyes, but my right eyelid was heavy. I lifted up my hand, and as I looked on it with my left eye, I felt my stomach turning around - my hand was bright red with blood. I didn’t even get to find out what just happened, before I was smashed into the wall behind me, my lungs losing all air and my ribs starting to hurt badly again. I gasped for breath, as I looked at the creature that had me pinned against the wall by my neck.

It was all black - its milky eyes looked right at me, concentrated, as if it was trying to read my thoughts. I could only see a small part of its face, and just that scared the crap right out of me. It looked like something from a nightmare.

Suddenly the pull on my neck from its hand/paw/whatever it was, was gone, and I fell down on the kitchen table again, looking at Teds back, as he looked at the creature, which is now lying on the floor.

It had black wings, thin and black arms and wings, and a distorted face, which was wrapped around an evil smile with pointed fangs behind the paper-thin lips.

“Sssshe will get you… the revenge will be ssssevereeee…” it hissed at us, and then it took off, knocking Ted of his feet and flies out through the broken window.

We were silent for a couple of seconds, as the noises suddenly disappear, and Ted got to his feet.

“What the fuck did just happen…” he asked me, looking at me with big, scared eyes. There was a faint recognition in them, behind the terror and shock. I felt a bit like what I saw in his eyes, as I shook my head. I had a feeling that I had seen that creature before, but when, where and how, I had no memory of.

“I don’t know, I…” I stopped as a white light brightens up the room and blinds my eyes. When I opened them again, I opened both eyes - and the pain from the glass splinters is gone. I looked around, and the window was whole again - the kitchen was clean, and there was no blood to be seen. I looked at Ted, getting goose bumps all over my body. I sat on the kitchen table and felt my body shake. There was no trace of what just happened - but I knew, with every inch of me, that it was real. First of all, because obviously, Ted had seen it all, too. Second, my guts told me to remember this clearly - suddenly my nightmare seem close and scary again, and I looked up at Ted.
