Heaven, where most people want to end up after death. A place of happiness and comfort. Where love, food and everything are eternity. Where angels that watches every minute of our life, to make sure we are safe. A place where everyone want to belong but a place I want to escape..........
Hile look around, looking for familiar faces, especially his friend Ly. As he scan the crowd, everyone seems to know everybody, maybe they live in the same Brook as they call every houses in Heaven. Everyone in the crowd are fifteen or sixteen years old. You must be at least fifteen before you get accepted to Angel Academy where Heaven Officials decide if you're worthy to became an Angel. Before Hile saw Ly, the trumpet already blown by Gorg, a man who get assigned for these special events. One of the Heaven Official came in front, he wore a white suit and a black tie. Everything is put in place, his gray hair is perfectly combed and he straightens his posture as he read the scroll in front of him.
"Soon to become Angels, welcome to Angel Academy"
He said in a harsh voice as if his voice is not meant for him.
Everyone clapped. Hile saw Ly shoving everyone as she approach him. She wears a perfectly ironed white dress. As her curly black hair sway in the wind and finally she is beside him holding a feather in her hand.
"What is the feather for?"
He asked as he gesture to the white feather in her palm.
"Ooh, my mom took one feather from her wings for good luck."
She whispers as she look around.
"I like it! Did it hurt your......."
But before he can asked her, one of the Heaven Official continued to his speech.
"As everyone of you know, Angel Academy is a place of Peace, Happiness and Eternity. You should all understand that being accepted in this fine school for soon to be Angels is a good accomplishment. You should all be proud of yourself."
He said and everyone clapped once again.
"Everyone will received a scroll where you will see one of the Heaven Official. They will teach you all you need to know about Humans and about....... Slegnas."
He hesitate in that last word as if it's a poison in his mouth or a forbidden word.
"May your stay here in Angel Academy is happiness and may you all have not sinned".
He said as he roll the scroll and went inside the Angel Academy's huge white door with gold linings on the side and a word Hile keep staring at, "eternity"
As Hile looked at the scroll he received, the name written in black ink with weird markings beside it and he recognize some of them. The triangle with French writing inside it that Hile can't understand. "la mort était en vous" he tried to say it but words can't come out, he sounded like he want to choke the words out.
Hile felt a grip on his shoulder and turned around. It was Ly with her beautifully ironed dress with a scroll in hand. She is beautiful with her emerald eyes like the color of the grass in a the spring time. She was talking to Hile and become conscious.
"Hile..." She said "You ok? Hello anyone there? Heaven to Hile."
He asked as he roll the scroll with his iron fingers.
"I said can I see your scroll?"
She said as she snatched the scroll from his grip and slowly reading his schedule.
Hile can see her expression when she gave the scroll back to him. It was the expression of delight and happiness.
"We both have Angel Atan for our Human subject!"
She hugged Hile and he return the tight hug with a huge smile on his face. He likes to see Ly happy in his arms and he do not want to see her unhappy.
