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.

“Heya girl! Whatup?” Tedd was bobbing towards me, bouncing on his feet across the ground. I smiled at him, but I stayed at the stone. When Tedd was beside me, he asked what I wanted.

“I want to show you something, or what to call it…” I said, then standing up, looking around. “Audrey? Would you please come out here?” In my voice, I tried to put an apology, and as he emerged from the woodland, I looked at him. I did my best to feel like I was sorry, and apparently he got the message, because he smiled at me. His wings weren’t visible, so for now, Tedd wasn’t too weirded out. When Audrey was beside us, his hand reach out to grab Tedd’s.

“Hello. I’m Audrey, if you hadn’t noticed. I want to tell you a story.” He said, and then he started telling Tedd the exact same story as I was told last night. I listen closely now, too, to be sure to remember everything. Audrey got this look on his face again, when he told about the priestess getting married to the king, but Tedd did not seem to notice - Audrey had had his wings appear in a flash of white light, and Tedd was gawking at them. When Audrey had finished his story, Tedd looked pale. He scratched himself in the back of his head.

“So you’re telling me that I am the reincarnation of some guy that was this priestess’s best friend or something? And this priestess is Caitlynn?” suddenly his accent was gone, and he looked utterly confused. Audrey nodded at him, and then Tedd started walking in circles, it was clear that he was thinking like mad. I couldn’t blame him - it all sounded so confusing, but I could also see on his facial expression that he had the same feeling of familiarity about this. Suddenly he stopped, looking at Audrey and his gigantic, white wings again. Then he shook his head in surrender.

“Okay. Okay, okay. But what now then?” he asked, looking from me to Audrey.

“Now we awaken the magic in your blood.” Audrey answered. He let his wings disappear again, in another flash of light, and then he sat down on the frozen ground. Apparently, he didn’t feel the coldness of the earth or wind, because he was only wearing his leather jacket. He made sign to us to sit beside him, and we looked doubtingly at each other, but then we sat down, careful to get some of the back of our jackets underneath us. “Take my hands,” he said, stretching his arms towards us. “and each other’s,” when we was joined in a small circle, he told us to close our eyes, and so we did. “Think of what I have been explaining to you. Think about your origin. Think about the magic that runs in your veins.” Audrey told us, and I tried the best I could, imagining this place where I apparently grew up the first time. “Now, I am going to transfer a tiny bit of my power into you - that should do a great deal to awaken yours, but it is not enough. We have to train, and train hard.” While he talked, I felt a rush of warmth going through my hand, all the way up my arm, into my chest. It swept all around me, filling me with warmth and a feeling of home and love. My senses sharpened - I could suddenly hear all the leafs on the ground when the wind blew across them - I could hear the sound of footsteps in the distance. I felt something inside me warming up, something that I had never felt before - it had a sense of power to it, a sense of something greater than humanity. It is really hard to explain, but I felt so much stronger.
