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?...


6. Roux

I have been thinking about her all night. Wondering through the wood, until sunrise. Too guilty to face Marshall with all his rules and accusing looks.

See, that's what will happen if I go back up there and see him. He will say: "This is your last chance!" And "You have to stick to the laws if the guardian angels if you want your halo degree!"

Bla, bla, bla, bla, bla! On and on, all day long. The thing is I want my halo degree, so badly. So I can stop being guided and chaperoned. There are so many flaws to being a guardian angel in training!

I was given Nahla as my assigned from an early age and told to guard her, take care of her and make sure she doesn't come to any harm.

I was told to help but only according to the guardian angel handbook, the rules and laws of being in this profession. I have known her since she was a child, all through her years of growing up and now I've fallen for her.

She can't be feeling the same way, can she?

I guess I have to go up there soon, or they'll come down and find me. Marshall knows my hiding place is usually in the wood.

And, yes. Before I know it, he has beamed down beside me. A smart figure in a white suit and slicked-back hair. Wings folded on his back.

I have my own, but they're tucked underneath my t shirt , two feathered lumps under the material.

"So... where exactly have you been? Fighting? To save your assigned?"

I'm speechless.

"But, how did you...?"

"I can track your movements, Roux. You don't have to tell me."

Sitting down next to me, he chooses a pile of leaves to recline on.

"You have to stick to the rules, Roux! You can't just wonder around and mess things up for yourself, all over again! These degrees are important!"

"I know!!" I stand up, yelling. A flame has lit in my eyes and a ring of fire has formed around me on the leaves. My wings burst out of my T-shirt and tower above me. "I know! I know I have to work hard, I know I have to stick to the rules but sometimes it's just, difficult! To control everything inside along with every other thing I have to be doing at the same time! But you never get that, do you?!"

The flame has gone from my eyes, the ring has gone out. I droop, sadly. My wings folding back Into my back. I sit down, again and put my head in my hands. " It's just... hard. I can't take this any more."

" You have to, Roux. Otherwise you'll never get to be a free angel and pass your degrees."

" I know..." I get up and begin to make my way over to the edge of the forest."Where are you going?" He stands up, watching me. "No

Where." I carry on until he is out of reach, a lonely, white figure in the wilderness.
