I get off the call with Katherine and I know that she will waste no time sending her friends to rescue the hybrid princess. Now I just sit and wait for her to show up.
Twenty minutes later there is a scratching at the front door to the main building. I answer it and see two komodo dragon looking beasts carrying a tiny girl on their backs.
"Well, I knew she would be fast but I didn't think it would be that quick." I say. I pick the small girl up off of the dragons and thank them for rescuing her before taking her inside. She was very thin and had bruises all over her, no doubt from her father. I go directly to the hospital and take her to an empty room. I lay her down and immediately get to work setting up all of the machines and getting an IV ready. I was trying not to think of how much she looked like Danielle but it was difficult. I hear stirring on the bed and I look up to see the princess sitting at the edge just staring off into the distance. I know shes not looking at anything and she can't hear me moving aroud the room but I'm quite sure that she can snese vibrations.
"Who's there?" She asks. I stand up unsure of what to do. "I know you're there. Who are you?" She asks again. I create a mind-link to her and she starts to get angry. "Get out of my head!" She yells. I continue to push further into her head until I know she will be able to hear me.
'I'm Sebastien. You were rescued from your cell and brought here on my order.' I tell her. She gasps.
'Why should I trust you? Why should I trust anyone? What viable reason can you give me?' She asks me. I start thinking about a good reason that I could give her to believe in me and of course the only thing that pops into my head...
'I'm an angel.' She snorts at me. She has got a lot of attitude for a child that is only supposed to be five years old but then again she was forced to grow up faster than most children are and it's Hell and I guess demon children develop faster than human children.
'Right, and that's supposed to help me believe you? I've met angels and they were all a bunch of butts. What makes you different from any of them?' She asks me. Now this was an easy one.
'I'm not fallen. I still have my white wings. Those other angels that you met were fallen angels.' I tell her.
'Is there any other infromation you can give me to make that statement actually make sense?' She says. The only thing I can think of is Danielle.
'Your mother. She wasn't an angel to begin with. In fact she was living right here where we are. She was the only person who believed that I could save them. I didn't even believe in myself but her enthusiasm to earn her wings was what helped me to not lose hope. She earned her wings and became a level 0 angel with powers and everything but then all of the angels fell and we got attacked by the demons that were created from the fall.' I stop talking because I know if I continue I might get emotional.
'You loved her?' She asks me. I give a little laugh.
'Yeah. I guess you could say that. That really isn't my thing though.' I say.
'What?' She asks. I shake my head really glad that she doesn't really understand what I just said.
'Nothing. Let's just say that I was created differently from the other angels and leave it at that.' I tell her and she just nods.
'Is there a way to get food around here?' She asks.
'Yeah. I'm sorry. I was so caught up in conversation that I forgot that you haven't eaten. What would you like?' I ask her and she strokes her invisible beard while thinking of what she could eat.
'How about.... sushi?' She says. I just shake my head and look at her.
'You like human food?' I say. She smiles and nods. 'Alright one order of sushi comin' right up. You wait here and I'll bring it back to you.' I say as I get up and walk out of the room.
I walk into the kitchen area and the cook is there.
"Sir, what are you doing in here? Is there something you would like to eat?" He asks me. I just smile and shake my head.
"Unless you know how to make sushi then I don't think you can help me." I tell him. He nods and goes back to washing up. I walk over to the counter and wave my hand over it and all of my ingredients appear and another wave of my hand it's completely put together and cut up. I put it on a platter and take it back to the room.
'Here you go princess.' I say handing her the plate. She freezes up at the name.
'I am not a princess. Not anymore.' She says. All I can do is just sit and stare at her as she eats her food is peace and quiet. The more I think about what she said the more I find it true.
She is no longer the princess of Hell.
