My Angel

Annabelle Grace never knew she was special. Yeah, she might've been pretty, but lots of girls are. Nothing ever really set her apart from anyone else, but on her sixteenth birthday her life takes a turn she could have never expected, and learns she is in fact quite extraordinary.


10. Options

~~Annabelle’s POV:

Strangely, instead of flying or teleporting or something fancy, we take a cab to a train station. My dad buys tickets for us and we take a train back to the mountains where he lives. On the train we sit in our own little car, and I sleep for most of the ride because I’m exhausted.

I wake up from a nap at some point, and wait to move or open my eyes, because I hear my father saying something about me, “…she’s in more danger than she’s ever been in before, and we’re really going to need to work hard to keep her safe. The two of you can’t let her out of your sight, understand? That shouldn’t be a problem now, but I really mean it. I won’t be around all the time soon enough and I need to be able to know nothing bad is happening to her while I’m away.”

Harry says, “When we return to the house, we should strengthen the protections on the cabin and also put some on Belle herself…”

Louis adds, “Give her the necklace Jophiel. She’s old enough now, and if we teach her how to use it, it won’t harm her.”

He sighs, “I don’t know about that Louis, you know that can be tricky since she’s only half…”

Harry says, “But she’s so innocent and so pure… I don’t think there’s anything that would make it cause her harm…”

My dad says, “But what Zayn, Liam, and Niall did to her could affect that Harry. I need to consult with some of the others before I go through with that…”

What necklace are they talking about? Why am I in so much danger? Won’t everything be okay? Can’t we just, like, stay up in heaven or something? I can’t help it; all these questions are driving me insane. I let my eyes flutter open and ask, “What’s going on?”

My dad looks at me and sighs, “How much did you hear?”

I don’t know how much I should give away, but Harry says, “She knows she’s in danger and heard about the necklace.”

I glare at him, and he shrugs. I say, “Stop doing that. Maybe I don’t want you snooping around in my head.”

He sticks his tongue out at me and Louis says, “You know you can hide things from him, right?”

I smirk, “I can?”

He nods, “I’ll teach you later love.”

Harry pouts, and my dad says, “Anyways, now that you’re sixteen, you’re no longer completely protected from all of the… evils of the world I suppose is the simple way to put it. You’re more vulnerable now, and demons can reach you now. Zayn, Liam, and Niall waited until your birthday for that purpose.”

I ask, “But why do they want me? I’m not as, I don’t know, not as good as you all I guess…”

Louis says, “You’re not as strong as us, which makes you a perfect target to them. They can break you down more easily. You’re half human, which immediately makes you more emotionally unstable and vulnerable than us.”

I nod a little, and ask, “But I still don’t understand why they wanted to use me to learn about you all. Don’t they understand you all since they used to be like you?”

My dad says, “They’re looking for ways to tear us all down and make us like them. That’s what they were trying to do with all of the scenarios they threw you into inside your head, and the poison in you.”

I ask, “They want to kill you all?”

Harry shakes his head, “They want to make us like them. They were trying to see if they could force all of that onto you, strip you of your angelic qualities and make them demonic…”

I say, “Ohh… they can do that?”

My dad shrugs, “We don’t think so, but we really aren’t sure of all of the methods they’re coming up with to test either…”

I ask, “Does that mean they’ll come back for me? Is that what you’re worried about?”

They’re all quiet for a minute, and I ask, “What necklace are you talking about? Why would it hurt me? What does it even do?”

My dad sighs, “We can talk about all of this once I make my decision about whether or not we’re using it. Okay?”

I sigh, “Okay… I don’t understand why everything has to be a big secret though. Can’t you all trust me?”

Harry shrugs, “Of course we can trust you Annabelle, but the less you know, the less, I don’t know… for lack of a better word, valuable  you are to people like Zayn, Liam, and Niall.”

Louis adds, “Also, that keeps other demons from trying to reach you. The more you know, and the more you can do, the more attention you attract from people that want to harm you.”

I nod a little, and say, “Fine.”

My dad says, “Listen to me Annabelle; I will tell you everything that you need to know, and if I don’t tell you something, you can assume without a doubt it’s only for your safety, alright?”

I nod again, and say, “I understand, it still sucks though.”

Louis says, “Cheer up Annabelle, I’m going to teach you how to shield your thoughts, and then we can mess with Harry, sound good?”

I laugh a little and say, “Sounds awesome.”
