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.

“It’s a lot to take in, isn’t it?” he asked. I just nodded. Apparently, that was enough for him, and he continued. “I know you’re having a real hard time, even though you might not know it yourself. This doesn’t make it any easier for you, and I am really sorry. I tried to stop Juliet from … interfering with the accident. But she had too many of those disgusting beasts with her, and I was overpowered until it was too late. As I told you, I was only able to save you. You actually did die - but after your parents. That is why you don’t remember any more. Your soul left your body, but this time, I succeeded in grabbing it before it was too late, but you parents’ were already gone. I was centimeters from getting your brothers, though. I healed as many of your wounds that I could manage.” I had stopped walking. I found myself starring into the twilight, warm tears rolling down my cold cheeks, my arms hanging down my sides - now I realized that since going back home, I had pushed it all away - now, every feeling returned. The misery of being left alone. The pain of losing my family, my home and my foundation. Slowly, my hands reached towards my face, and hid it from Audrey’s eyes. A sob made my whole body shake, and at the same time, Audrey’s arms closed around me, pulling my close. I could smell him now - he smelled nice. Like spring, the feeling of the life returning to the world, he smelled like books in the mornings before Christmas, and he smelled like familiarity. I was, by then, completely sure that I had known him before, and the fact that I had forgotten everything made me even more sad.

My sobs became more violent, but he kept me from shaking too much. He put his cheek on my hair, making me feel like I was completely hidden from the world. He just stood there, holding me while I cried and cried. I don’t know for how long, I lost sense of time - but I knew that it felt so good, and that this opened me totally to him. From the moment he hugged me like that, I was not afraid of him anymore - I still couldn’t remember anything, but I knew that I had loved him in the same way that you would love a brother, that he had always been there for me, and that he definitely loved me, and had loved me for the past 4000 years.

 

Later that night, I lay in my bed. I couldn’t fall asleep, I felt restless. After laying like that for a good hour, I got up and went to the window. I opened it a crack.

“Audrey?” I whispered. “Audrey?” silently, he appeared from above me, his pre, white wings spread out behind him, moving to keep him hanging in the air.

“Something wrong?” he asked.

“Would you please come inside?”

He hesitated. Then he grabbed the windowsill, and I backed away from the window while he climbed in and had his wings disappear.

“What is it?” he asked, looking down at me.

“I want to know more. About what I used to be.” I told him. He looked at me for a moment, then smiled sad at me. I really wanted to know what he was thinking - his face didn’t tell me anything. He gestured for me to sit at my bed, and so I did.
