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, what happened at that crash? Everyone else OK?” he asked, obviously he hadn’t considered that it could be a tough subject, but I really didn’t mind telling him. I had a feeling that we could become friends.

“It’s a bit complicated to tell, but … well, it was with my parents and my brother … You could say that they didn’t make it, and it wouldn’t really be overdoing anything.”

He became silent for a couple of seconds. “I shouldn’t have asked, I’ma pretty stupid boy, ma momma always told me that.” He said, and he sounded genuinely sorry.

“It’s okay. It’s what happens sometimes, you know. Don’t mind it.” I smiled at him, didn’t want him to feel bad about himself.

“But then what? You livin’ all alone?”

“No, I was adopted by my aunt and uncle. I live at their place now.”

“Oh, okay. You’ve been to school today, then? Already?” he had seen my school bag.

“Yeah, I wanted to start as fast as possible, get as much as possible back to normal.”

“’Course, I get ya. If you need someone to lighten up the mood, I would gladly be the one. I can be quite funny, ya know.” He said, winking at me and then started laughing. “’Course that would be weird, I’ma still a stranger. But feel free to find me if you want to. You can get ma cellnumber, too.” Now, I laughed too.

“Well, it would be quite nice to have a friend. The ones in my new class isn’t exactly my type of people.”

“They al’ hagin’ with them heads, oh?” he said, overdoing the way he talks to absolute maximum, and I laughed so much that my ribs started hurting again.

“Yeah, you could say that. Wouldn’t be wrong, at least,” and he laughed too. I stopped in front of the house, going up the first stair. I pulled my cell out of my pocket and asked for his number. Then I told him thanks again, and went inside.

I was the first one to get home, but as I went up to the attic, I got a strong feeling of not being alone. I stopped on the middle of the staircase and looked down. The house was as silent as a grave, and the sun shined lightly through the windows. But even though everything seemed to be like it should, I couldn’t shake the feeling of me, and I got some serious chills. Then I ran up the rest of the staircase, to the next one and smashed down the plate on top of the stair to the attic. I sat down, suddenly aware of my breathing that sounded loud and fast. I tried to calm down, but the images of my nightmare kept on bobbing into my head, even though I fighted to lock them away. I stood up again, and slowly went to the window, looking outside on the road. Down along it, I saw Tedd. He walked slowly, and then, when I opened the window, he turned around. I was just about to stumble back inside, when he catched my eye and brought up a smile at me. Then, instead of carrying on walking away, he walked back. I couldn’t help a smile and as he came closer, his grin became bigger and bigger.

“So, you live up high, hu?” he said when he was standing almost directly underneath me. I laughed and nodded at him.

“Don’t you think that you should head home?” I asked him, and then his face blanked and he just shrugged.
