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.

I sat through the day in my corner, keeping calm and ignoring the girls’ evil stares and gnarls. I didn’t mind them, and when they got the message, they left me alone. When I was off at a quarter past 2, I went home, walking through the park like I did yesterday. I was walking in my own thoughts, and when I then felt a hand on my arm, I became frightened. I spun around, and behind me stood Audrey. His wings were gone, but he was wearing the same cloth as he had last night. He smiled at me.

“You alright?” he asks, but with a smile telling me that he knows that I perfectly OK, except for him scaring me. When I nodded, he reached out his hands, pulling the necklace out from underneath my shirt. “I’m glad you’re wearing it. It makes it a tiny bit easier for me to watch out for you.” He says, smiling at me. I smile back, recovered from the fear. Actually seeing this weird guy watching over me made me feel so protected and comfortable.

“Well, it fit my outfit so well, I just couldn’t help it.” I grinned back at him, feeling so familiar with him - the story he told me last night makes more and more sense - the feeling that Tedd and I would be friends, this familiar and comfortable feeling I got around Audrey. I believed it, even though it seemed mad. But I could feel that I had met Audrey before - even though it had been … 4000 years, and I was in another body. Oh hell, how weird did it sound?

He laughed, and in a protective way, he swung his arm around my shoulders, but this made me feel too familiar, and I quickly drew away from him, but regretting this immediately afterwards - the look on his face made my stomach ache with pain - he looked so sad that I pushed him away, that I couldn’t handle it.

“Sorry, I’m so sorry - it’s just - I just…” I didn’t know what to say, but he just shook his head, and pointed at my necklace.

“I felt it, remember? I just got a bit too far into my old role…” he said, turning on his heels and walked away from me. I called his name, but he promptly ignored me. I sighed, and then continued the walk home. Then, I got an idea. I got out my phone, found Tedd’s number and wrote him a text, asking if we could meet up somewhere. Not even a minute passed by before he answered. ‘Cause, where?’ and I wrote down the description for the place at the lake where I usually went. Then I pulled my winter jacket closer around me, going down there myself, shortly after getting a text saying ‘be there in ten’. Then I went down there. I was there before Tedd, and I put my bag down at the stone that I was sitting on the other night, and then sat on the stone myself. I just sat there, staring at the lake for some time before I heard a yell.
