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.

“But also because you loved the priestess, didn’t you? You said that it broke your heart to see her - uhm, me… - marry that king… you loved ... her, me, whatever, didn’t you?” I asked him. He looked at me with eyes that told me the truth, even though he didn’t say a word. They showed me a softness that I had never seen in anyone before, softness and a love so intense, that I knew that I could never believe this story to be fake. I swallowed.

“Okay... now what? What do we do?” I asked, making my voice business-like. He kicked into serious mode, even though his eyes gave him away.

“Now, I protect you 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I watch over you, without letting anyone see me. The next time that you are alone with Tedd, I will tell him all this, too. Then I will help you train. You have magnificent powers in your blood; it just has to be awakened. When this happens, your blood will also turn silver.” His green eyes now gleamed with excitement. I nodded slowly.

“So what you’re saying is that this Lady … Juliet, was it? She will try to kill me.”

“Yes. And Tedd, too, if she can get away with it.” His eyes became hard and cool when talking about this. I pretended not to see, and instead, suddenly becoming very much aware that I looked like a mess, pulling my bedcovers around me. “I will tell you our goal when Tedd Adams knows all of this too. Now, sleep. Do you want me to stay inside or would you prefer to have me outside?” I considered this, but at last I decided that I would like to have him outside. Anything else would just be plain weird. I told him goodnight, and watched him crawl out the window, after putting down a necklace, the necklace that he told about, on my windowsill.

 

The next morning, the memory stood quite clear in my mind. The only physical sign that it was real, though, was a great, white feather lying on my bedside table. I picked it up, and remembered the other feather that I found when going back to my old house. I found it in the dresser. They shined slightly in the dark room, and as I put them both back in the drawer, I pulled out a red shirt and a pair of jeans. I dressed, and then made my way downstairs to the kitchen to get breakfast. My head was spinning and I felt dizzy. I sat down heavily on my chair, got a bowl and pour some cereal. I sat quiet and ate it, since none of the others were up yet, which surprised me a bit. But soon I heard them waking up and moving around. I suddenly didn’t feel like talking to anyone at all and quickly finished eating and then got up, put the bowl in the dishwasher and hurried to the bathroom. I brushed my hair and my teeth and put on my makeup. I looked in the mirror. I looked pale, my eyes sinking into my skull. I took a deep breath. Then I exited the bathroom, going back up to my room. I stood silently, motionless in the room for a moment, then I went to the windowsill. The necklace lay there, reflecting the light from the morning sun. I picked it up. It was cold, but not in an unpleasant way. I looked at it for a moment, and then I put it on, pushing the emblem with the wings underneath my shirt. I looked at myself in the mirror. I still looked tired and old, but there was something else. A sense of power, a sense of protecting, and wearing this, I felt a little more powerful, and ready to go to school.
