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.

Audrey followed me home. Or, rather, carried me. He only put me down at the last turn before getting to my house, so it would not look like something was wrong.

“I’ll keep an eye on you. Go to your room without talking to anyone, just get up there. I’ll wait for you to open the window.” He said, and I couldn’t help but think about the story about Wendy and Peter Pan, where Mrs. Darling insisted that the window was to always stay open so her kids could return home.

I closed the door silently, though it was not really necessary. The car wasn’t here, so the house should be empty. But I was frightened despite knowing that Audrey was only few meters above me. The thought of something disturbing like the beast from before inside the house was terrifying, and I moved around on my toes, making as little noise as possible.

When I finally mounted the last staircase to my attic and closed the door on top of it. I threw my bag on the floor and went straight to the window, letting Audrey inside.

“Okay, I’m gonna collapse on my bed now. I can barely stand,” I said, sitting down heavily on the bed. Audrey nodded, understanding. He pulled the chair from my desk out, sitting beside my bed. I put my head on my pillow, closing my eyes for just a second. My body is aching much worse than ever before, worse than I remember it did after the accident. I feel the cover on top of me, and opening my eyes to see Audrey standing beside me, tucking me in.

“I sent a mental note to Tedd, telling him about the situation. Told him to come here. He’ll be here any moment.” He says. At my puzzled look, he explains. “I made a linked system between us so we can communicate faster in cases like this. I am going to do the same to you, but not right now. You are far too weak.”

“That sounds awesome. But … does that mean that you read each other’s thoughts?” I asked, slightly uncomfortable with Audrey not only being able to feel what I feel, but also read my every thought. But to my relief, he shook his head.

“No. Only what we want to tell each other will be communicated between us.” As soon as he stopped talking, a low ‘thump’ was heard from the window. Audrey stood up and moved to the window. “It’s Tedd.” He said. “I’ll go down and open the door. There’s nobody home, right?” he asked, and I just shook my head. He disappeared through the hole in the floor to the staircase. Less than two minutes later, Tedds head  bobbed into view as he mounted the staircase and in four fast steps was beside me, sitting down on my bed.

“Are ‘ou OK?” he asked with his typical accent, making me smile.

“As OK as one can be after being made a tree-hitting human club.” I say, trying to make a little fun of it. Then, Tedd turned to Audrey.

“You should’ve called me earlier. I could’ve helped her,” he said. Audreys face grew dark.
