A Story Of Angels.....That Are Demons

People believe angels are good, and kind. But, they aren't. This has a perspective from the Angels that fell from grace. If you have another opinion, please, let me know and I will incorporate it as best I can. I really hope I can mix them correctly, and play the parts well.

Xaphan lay on the four poster bed, one arm behind his head the other holding the phone Ariel had given him, as a gift. Slowly he dialed Leonard's number, glad he had it memorized. It rang twice and Leo final answered.

"Leo, Its X." Leo stayed quiet and then said "I'm surprised to hear from you again. Why are you calling? Is it really safe?"

"Yeah, Leo, it is, I'm locked in Ariel's bedroom. Not much happened last night but I do have a theory...About Demons. You know the Native American saying about the wolves?"

"Yeah, One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said,"My son, the battle is between two "wolves" inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith." The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: "Which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee simply replied,
"The one you feed."" Leo said it slowly, thinking about it. "What about it, X?"

"Well, I have a theory about it....what if the Cherokee was right? But instead of wolves its a demon and a angel? And, like, when we get sick its one of them winning? And we have a inner and outer demon, we know that but what if we have a inner angel that appears as a demon? Outer is what the world sees around us, and inner is what no one can really see....Leo? You still their?"

"Uh, yeah, X, where did all that come from?"

"Last night with Ariel....when we....you know.....it occurred to me. On the outside I acted like I wanted her but on the inside I was killing myself for doing this....Well, I haven't learned anything new...I'll try to contact you when I get something, ok?"

Leo was hesitant "Ok, X, and Nyx has been causing problems since I told then about your three month stint with Ariel. I might have to lock her down.....or worse, ok X?"

Xaphan sighed... he had never really liked Nyx, she seemed to...odd but it was expected of them to be together..."I never liked her, Leo, Nyx always bothered me...she just doesn't fit right. By, Im going to go shower and see what Ariel is going to do with me." Xaphan hung up before Leo could protest.

Xaphan stood slowly and walked into the adjoined bathroom. Some things had changed since he was here last.....not much. He stopped before a floor length mirror. Even slower than the walk to the bathroom he turned so he could see his back.....it was covered in long scratches and old scars. Flinching slightly he stepped into the shower stall and turned the water on as hot as possible.

He shuttered as the hot water ran over the deep cuts in his back. They would heal fine, but until then they would hurt....pain was just another thing he was used to.

Standing in the hot water and condensate helped him think about how he would convince Ariel he worked for her, maybe staying locked in her room would be enough. Turning off the water he stepped out and grabbed a towel hanging on a nearby hook. It was pink, wishing it was black Xaphan turned to the mirror to clear it so he could look at his back....he dropped the towel....it was black...
