Martyr

Jade Kapan just might be the most normal person you could meet. But don't jump to conclusions, because you couldn't be more wrong. And she has no idea. No idea that the angels fight demons constantly just to keep the humans safe. No idea that she can change the whole course of the war. The only thing is, will she have the strength to make a vital decision?

4. Sight

           Derek the Demon (heh) unsheathed a sword that was pitch-black. It seemed to reach into my mind and pull out my deepest-darkest fears. I was paralyzed with my petty fears. He and Mark went head on. It took me a while before I actually realized what was going on: it was a demon and an angel. They were real, and they were fighting to the death. Unfortunately for Derek, he was less skilled. Mark quickly sliced right through him, his wings flapping, and Derek disappeared in a black cloud of vapor with a wail. The other demons were wise enough to stay back from his white arc. Once he had sheathed his sword, he turned to me.

"Come on, we need to get out of here." He said solemnly. I was too shocked to say anything. I reached up to feel my horns, but they weren't there anymore, thankfully.

Mark noticed the movement and said quietly, "It's good that I got here when I did, before your horns became more permanent. You need to be more careful with who choose to hang out with."

"But you're a.... an...." I stammered, recovering somewhat from the shock.

"I'm an angel. A guardian angel. Now, I'm not your guardian angel, but I came here because yours is mad at you." Mark explained.

"It'll all become clearer soon. We need to get back to your house, and quick. Cassie will be waiting there for us."

"But what would Cassie have to do with this?" I asked, clearly confused.

"You haven't guessed yet?" He prompted. "She's your guardian."

          We entered my house, and snuck quietly up the stairs. Somehow Mark had managed to tuck his wings away. We went up to my room, where a very-grumpy Cassie sat on my bed, her dove-white wings out and ready. It looked like she had flown in through my window. 

"Cassie, I can't even begin to explain how sorry I am." I said honestly as we well into a hug.

"That's ok, Jade, you passed your first test!" She said without a hint of a grudge in her voice.

"Wait, what are you talking about?! Test?!" I asked kinda pissed off.

"Jade," Mark said while placing his hands on my shoulders to make sure that I looked him in the eyes. "Within the next few... well, who knows how long, you will undergo a series of tests. You won't know when these tests are, we will. But we won't tell you."

"So I'm supposed to pass a test that I don't even know I'm taking?" I asked, totally bummed out.

"Uh, yeah, pretty much." Cassie confirmed.

At that moment, my mom walked into the room.

"Oh, hey, Cassie," She said with a nod in Cassie's direction, "And I don't believe we've met. I'm Mrs. Kapan, Jade's mom." She stepped forward to shake his hand.

"Hi, I'm Mark, I'm in Jade's class." He replied.

"Oh, well, have fun." She said then left.

"Why didn't she see your wings, Cassie?" I asked her incredulously.

"No one can, except other demons and angels," She explained. "And you."

"But you can only see our wings. But, I'm going to give you the gift of sight. Then, I'll give you a weapon to defend yourself." Mark explained further. He came up to me then told me to close my eyes. He closed his too, then concentrated hard. When he was done, he told me to look outside. I almost fainted with the sight that I saw.
