Fallen angels

This is my entry for the third advent treat. It's a story about a young angel who falls in love with a human that she can never have


3. Realization

“Noooooooooooooooooooo! Oh no please no.” This couldn't be happening. I hadn't woken up yet. I was still in heaven. Tears streamed down my face as I clutched his hand. No, he was sleeping, he was fine. “Wake up, wake up.” I rocked back and forth; unaware of anything that was happening around me, the screams, gunfire muffled. Everything was blurred. And then I was on fire. My leg, I clutched it. My hand came away bloody. My eyes swum, I couldn’t see, couldn’t hear, couldn’t breath. And everything went black.

I had fainted. How could I faint? How could I cry.. About someone I had just met. Beat. Beat. Beat. That wasn't my heart. That was wings. My wings? Oh my, my wings were back? I felt my back to be greeted with soft downy feathers. So this was my punishment? Give me someone I may love, make them a human and then kill them? Anger bubbled up inside me. I knew what I had to do. Placing a kiss on Toby's forehead, I flew. I flew so fast and so high I wasn't in time to see his eyelids flutter.

I reached heaven before sunset. Requesting an audience with the Lord, I stormed into his office. 

"My Lord?" I started. He interrupted me straight away. I expected him to be angry, furious even, but he smiled at me sadly. 

"So, Rose is it? Rose, I am sorry you had to learn this way. Humans are just as important as us, even more so. We serve them you see. Why were you so sad about him anyway? You have only just met."

"Well My Lord, I can't really explain it. I know I haven't known him for long but, well, I think it is what these humans call. Love at first site." I blushed and swept my hair over my eyes. He lifted my head.

"Rose, you have two choices. You can either stay here, with your friends and family. Or you can go. Live with the humans. With Toby. I will grant you one gift if you go." I didn't know what to do. After all I hardly knew him. Beat.
