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.

That day was the day of the funeral. Only the day before, was I in the hospital. I’d been there for a week. That night, I slept on the couch. My aunt insisted that I should sleep in her and my uncle’s bed, but I told her no. I could sleep perfectly fine on the couch, and after a long argument, she finally gave in.

My old house stood like it stood before the accident. It was a weird thought. My parents and brother weren’t there anymore, and the house was like we left it. More tears formed in my eyes. The next day, my aunt and I were go back home and to collect my stuff. Then I would move in with them. During the last week, my uncle had made the attic in their house able to live in, because they didn’t have enough rooms. So I was going to have the whole attic to myself. I saw it the day before, and it was really nice. Both the ceiling and the floor were made of dark, old, brown wood. Very vintage and adorable.

There were only a few hours until the funeral now. My cellphone started ringing. I picked it up from my jacket pocket and looked at the display. It’s my aunt. Probably to tell me what I already knew; I should come home and make myself ready. I picked it up.

“Hey Stella. It’s Cait.” I answered. I was happy to hear that you couldn’t hear from my voice that I had been crying.

“Caitlynn, you alright? You have been away for three hours.” She asked, voice nervous. It was clear that she loved me, but this had made her world turned upside down almost as much as mine. My mother was her sister. She wasn’t quite herself even though she did everything she could to help me.

“Yeah, I’m fine. Just needed some air. Don’t worry. I’m on my way home.”

“Okay. I’ll see you in a minute, then.”

“Bye.” I ended the call. I let my cell go back into my pocket and turned around, starting to make my way back to town.

My aunt and uncle were kind of rich. You know, they had the money to take me out and buy me new furniture for my room. I had made a deal with my aunt, that we were going shopping when we had gotten my stuff from back home. I couldn’t help being a little ecstatic about it. I really liked to decorate rooms and such things. It was gonna be fun, even though it would be tuff.

By the time I got home, there was only one and a half hour until the funeral. I got the key from my jacket. It didn’t rain anymore. I stood at the front door. The road was as empty as it was by the lake.

I opened the door and closed it behind me afterwards. I take my wet jacket of and hung it on the hanger at the wall. I kicked my shoes of and put them beside my aunts. My cousin came running at me from the kitchen. She was only three years old and definitely one of the cutest things on this planet.

“Caitlynn! Where have you been?” she asked me, and I lifted her up and sat her on my hip.

“Just been taking a walk. Have you had a good time?” I asked her back. She nodded and smiled at me. She was still too young to really understand what was going on. She knew that her aunt, uncle and cousin were dead, but because of her young age, she didn’t quite get it. I envied her a little bit. But only a little. I wanted to remember them. I didn’t wanna forget. Never.
