Heaven Sent

Blue eyes, dark hair over one eye, pale skin...
Who is the mysterious boy that saved Nahla on the night of the fight?
Why is he here? For her sake? Well, Roux is no ordinary guy... Doing what he does is difficult. Not to break the law, bend the rules, to be with her... but, they can get away with it. Can't they?...


7. Nahla

By lunch, I'm feeling much better. Everyone has decided to stay away from me now, respecting my space and that suits me just fine!

We walk down to the field and decide to relax on the grassy plane, daisies waving in the sunshine.

"You're thinking about him, aren't you?"

"Who? Oh yeah, him."

“Brave...” She looks away, hiding a snigger. “To stand up to your ex like that. And, I thought he was quite cute.”

“Yeah, I guess...”

She grins. “Oh, come on Nahla, I know you like him. No use pretending.” I shrug. "Well, it's not like I'm gonna see him again any time soon." Kicking off my shoes, I lie my head back in the grass.

I look over towards a cluster of trees by the pond and catch a glimpse of...no it can't be! Dark hair over one eye, pale skin, white converse. I scramble to my knees and look wildly about.

He is there! Hiding behind an oak by the pond. Adele sees me looking. "What's up?"


I glance over my shoulder, quickly. "Nothing! Just going to the bathroom." Leaping to my feet, I leg it over to where the pond is.

But, when I get there, he's gone. Frowning, I spin on the spot and catch him slipping in between the trees of the forest over the other end of the field. I stop, dead. He woods are out of bounds, why has he gone in there?To make me follow him? To get me into trouble?

Why is he even here? He doesn't go to this school! (I think). Running after him anyway, my figure sprints down the lawn, skirt flying out behind me like a banner.

I creep over to the edge of the trees, peering through the branches. He's there, all right! Standing alone in an 'Ashton High' blazer, hands in pockets, staring up at the sky, his back to me.

Lighting speed, I whip back behind a beech tree, swearing that the pumping of my heart would give it all away. He's drawing me in, I just know it! Trying to get me away from the prying eyes of teachers. Well, I guess I can't say its not working.

Crunch, crunch. My bare feet on the leaves. He's going to find me. I peer around a branch. Gone.

Tip toeing around the tree trunk, I pick my way over to the clearing, when... "Fancy seeing you here!" I whip around, almost loosing my balance. Its him. "You, you... what are you doing here? This is school property. And, where did you get that blazer from? How did...?"

"So many questions!" He laughs, looking deep into me with those summer sky eyes, with a strange sense of de ja vu.

"Where do I start?" Grinning, he shrugs off the blazer.

"Nahla, that's right isn't it?"

"Yeah, no, maybe. How did you find that out?"

He taps his finger on he side of his nose. "Let's just say I know things."

"Like? What else do you know about me?"

I start breathing more heavily. "Get away from me!" Turing to run away, I feel a hand on mine, and stop abruptly. "Get off!" He pulls me closer though, and I fall silent.

He tucks a blonde strand behind my ear and smiles at me. "Trust me, its not how it looks..."

He is leaning forward. To kiss me? And suddenly all my worry about who he is, why he's here drifts away like a cloud on a breeze.

Then our lips have met and I'm kissing him tenderly, my hands running over his shoulder blades, where there is something.

Soft, white folds under his T-shirt. What are they? But, I don't have to wait long to find out. Abruptly, a bright, golden light bursts out of the blue and the folds unfurl, stretching out into the early afternoon sunshine!
