Olympia is the perfect angel. Sitting in the clouds, watching over her brother whilst he roams the Earth. But one day, she makes a mistake. The worst mistake anyone could possibly make.
She has no choice.
She has to fall.
Fall from Heaven.


5. Chapter 5

There was no other option. I had to fall. I had to become a human again, and risk my chance of ever going to Heaven again. All because of that one afterlife I had... I was ruining my whole angel reputation. All because of me, I was ruining the other people that I would share my soul with.

I decided. I had to come into contact with God. He told me I couldn't, told me my prayers would never be answered again. So I needed someone close to God.

I was still in the dark, but my thoughts were getting clearer, and my hands less clammy.

I thought and thought of angels. Who would save me? I had a great reputation in Heaven, and everyone loves each other up there, but Paka- I know her, she would have told everyone about what I had done by now.

I needed someone close. The closest person to me besides Paka was my brother, but he was alive, in Social Services. My parents were poisoned in a restaurant one night, but they went to another Promised Land, not Heaven. I blessed my brother. He had been through so much. His parents, murdered, and me- I... I was hit by a drunk driver at the age of sixteen. I would have stayed sixteen forever in Heaven, but I will never go there again.

Who? Who would save me? I could think of many angels that might come, but would take one look at where they were and vanish.

Lillian! She was one of my closest friends on Earth, but I lost her to suicide two years ago. I had never met her again in Heaven, I could never find her. I hadn't even tried to find her. I lost her completely. I wonder... Does she know about me? Does she know I died?

I had to pray. I knew I couldn't reach God, but I could reach someone close. Lillian had always been very religious, so no doubt she would have chosen Heaven over the other Promised Lands.

I began to pray. I concentrated so hard my head hurt. I never had to concentrate this hard before to reach a loved one, but then again, I was in the gateway to Hell. If that wasn't bound to slow prayers down, I don't know what was.

Lillian, don't fail me now. I need you. Come on, friend. Come on.

Suddenly I saw a light. It wasn't completely dark anymore, and I remembered going trick-or-treating with Lillian as a child in the dark. She always remembered a flashlight.

Come on, Olympia, don't lose control. Don't lose the signal. Concentrate.

I closed my eyes, and my eyebrows were furrowed in concentration.

Lillian, Lillian, Lillian.

I opened my eyes for a split second. The light was larger.

Come on, don't fail me.

I began to make out a human shape within the light. With wings.


The light faded away, and standing in front of me was Lillian, the most beautiful angel I had ever seen. She looked around, and moved her arms up and down. Her long, curly, brunette hair fell around her shoulders, and perched on her head was a twig crown, just like the one I used to wear in Heaven.

She turned to face me, her big blue eyes twinkling.
