Angels & Demons

She's never left the safety of her coven or the mountain they reside on. She's never seen the outisde world, but dreams of what lays beyond the rock and fog. It wasn't until the threat on her people was so substantial she finally had the courage to leave, to try and save herself and her people.

3. Chapter 3

'Tears blurred my vision and my nose wouldn't stop bleeding, I didn't understand. Was it because I had stressed my powers too much and I was weak from mal-nutrition? I had to get off this mountain, get away from Sam and Gabriel. I had to get away from the memory of my mother's death and being constantly told that it was my fault. There were so many questions I needed answered, I didn't even know who my father was. I had heard so many different things when it came to my father...Gabriel said he was a dirtbag that corrupted our mother, got her pregnant, and left her. Caylx simply said he was a human my mother had had an affair with, and Eastlyn said it didn't matter who or what my father was because I was my own person. No matter what any of them said didn't make me want to know any less. I was different than all of the other angels in our coven. I had raven black, feathery, wings and fine, dark, brown hair, but I had blue eyes. My brother, however, was the epidmey of the perfect angel. He had cloud white wings and thick blonde locks and the same ocean blue eyes that I did. Everyone in our community knew that brown hair and black leathery wings were trademarks of demons, the polar opposite of us angels, Lucifer's people, and our sworn enemies. 

I landed in front of the large oak doors of our coven's archives, I knew Caylx was there, I knew he would have answers to my problems, or at least be able to help. I knocked on the door and a voice sounded from inside.

"Come in." Calyx said just loud enough so his voice carried through the door. I pushed the door opened, my ears bleeding as the 100 year old hinges screeched. 

"You should really fix those hinges, Calyx." I groaned.

"Those hinges are hundereds of years old, Evangeline. Now, what is it you need?" He asked, not bothering to look at me, as he adjusted his glasses and continued to read the book in his hands. 

"Caylx, I um..." I stopped for a moment to clear my throat and take a deep breath to prepare myself for what I was about to say, "I need to leave the mountain."

I winced as Caylx slammed his book down on the ancient table, I was afraid he would break it. His back straightened as he turned around to look at me. His expression bitter and his features were hard as stone.

"No. You know the rules, Evangeline, no one leaves the safety of this mountain." His voice was deep now as he spoke to me in a low growl. Chills covered my entire body, Caylx had never been angry with me before, but I continued to stand my ground.

"I need answers, Caylx. One's I can't get here." I said defending my point.

"No one leaves the mountain, Evangeline! Not you, not me, no one!" He snapped.

"But there's a whole world out there!"

"A world that is dangerous and filled with things you don't understand."

"Because I've never had the chance to expirence them. Please Caylx!"

"No, Evangeline! You are my second, your sole job is to protect this coven, you do not leave. Not now, not ever!" 

I watched as Calyx's, now graying, wings opened and he jetted upward, flying away. The cold mountain wind whipped my hair into my face and hot tears stung my eyes. I was completley oblvious to the world around me that when I felt a hand on my shoulder I jumped about three feet in the air, Esai.

"What do you want?" I said coldly, turning towards him.

"Calm down, Evangeline. I'm not here to scold you, I heard your fight with Caylx and I wnated to make sure you were okay."  He said calmly. I raised an eyebrow at him, Esai had never really thought anything about me. We weren't close like Luc, Azrielle, and I were and everytime he spoke to me it was about my behavior and how I wasn't abiding by our coven's rules. He had never talk to me just to make sure I was okay. 

"He doesn't understand. There's something out there and it's coming for us and I don't think there's anything any of us can do to stop it. I can feel it." I sighed.

"You mean none of us, except you. Caylx and I know about the powers you posses, Evangeline. They're different than the typical angel powers. You're special and I think you're right. I think there is something coming and you're the only one of us who can stop it." I just stared at Esai, my mouth gaping. He had never looked to see if I was okay, but it was rare for him to agree with anyone, expect Caylx, especially me. I managed to shake myself out of my daze and collect my thoughts.

"Then explain that to Caylx, tell him why I need to leave the mountain, he'll listen to you." 

"But, I also understand why Caylx doesn't want you to leave. That's how he lost your mother and he doesn't want the same fate for you." Esai explained softly.

"What?" was the only word I managed to choke out. Caylx had told me that my mother left one day after I was born and was kidnapped and killed by Lucifer, the demon king. 

"Your mother was just like you, Evangeline. She was strong-willed, stubborn, and dreamed of a life beyond this mountain. When she left after she had your brother, she met a man...she met Lucifer, unbeknownst to he, and she fell in love with him and eventually became preganant with a child, with you. She came back to the mountain, seeking Caylx's help. After she gave birth to you, she left the mountain again to tell Lucifer about you, but before she could make conatct with him, a group of radical angels who had heard about your mother and her relationship with Lucifer, knocked her out of the sky. Caylx was in love with your mother and was heartbroken when he couldn't save her, that's why he's so protective of you...because he's hoping he can save you."
