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?...


16. Roux

My heart leaps in relief. And, I am so thankful. I hold her tight and whisper my thanks over and over into her white blonde hair, sleek against my cheek. I love her, so much.

I draw away. "Shall we fly?" Her eyes widen.

"Fly? What, really?"

"Yeah, really. What do you think these are for?" I open the window and let the cool breeze wash over me, spreading my feathers bathed in silver beams. "I think, I'll give it a miss this time." She shuffles awkwardly. I smile, knowing otherwise. "Fine, your loss." I take a running jump, when...

"No wait! seeing as you're going..." Biting her lip, she looks up at me.

"Go on then!" I jerk my head, she smiles. Taking her shoulders, I hold her in-front. "You ready?"

"I was born ready!" I laugh.

"Lets put that to the test, shall we?" And, we're off, up into the darkening sky. 

Wind rushing through our hair, she screams her loudest. "We're rulers of the world!" I shout, my hands sliding to her waist, guiding her. Looking up at me in the turning galaxies, her green eyes are emeralds in the darkness. My hands reach out to her's, where they meet and I hold our arms aloft, proudly in the starlight. A great bird on the breeze.

Guiding, I turn us around and we land in the glade of the woods. "Huh!" She turns, looking at her surroundings. "This brings back memories." Reaching out, she slides her fingers over the ruffling feathers. "Incredible..." Smiling, I cup her face in my hands. "...Beautiful..." We lean over, ready to meet, when... "Stop right there!" A spotlight has somehow appeared out of the aether, glaring down on where we stand.

It's Marshall's voice, booming as if from loud speakers! From the ground, from the sky and all the trees around us. "Roux, that was your last chance! You are under arrest for the criminal charges of making emotional contact with a human being. If you say anything now, it may be used against you in court."

Marshall has beamed down next to me, his cheery attitude gone, replaced by an increasing frown.

"This is the third time you've been caught kissing her! Your chances are up, Roux."

Her shocked expression shows throughout her body. "What's happening, Roux? Where are they taking you?" Marshall binds my hands behind my back with Magyk cord, an angel tool that can bind things, stronger than titanium! A shimmering band forms around my wrists.

"Do not inter-fear with the forces of 'Angel Law', human child. Now, you are going to have to come with us as well, I'm afraid. Back up!" Two men in white security uniform, appear out of nowhere and take Nahla by the arms. "No! You can do what ever you like with me, Marshall. But, don't take, Nahla! She hasn't done anything wrong, it was all my fault! I inflicted this on her. Send me to limbo, cast me aside, I don't care! Just, don't drag her into this."

I look up at Marshall, pleading, but his face remains sour and unmoved. "We need the girl for tests. Now, come quietly or you'll face worse punishment than you've been charged with." Beaming up into the sky, I take one last look at Nahla, her face ghostly, startled in the pools of light. And, we're separated.
