When I came to, I began to ask questions. “What… what the he-ck…” I glared at Nightfall. “Don’t you ever kiss me like that again got that… you are so f-reaking lucky I didn’t bite you.” I noticed everyone was staring at me. “Uh Angel Face… look in a mirror.” I stood up & walked to my full body mirror in my room. That’s odd; I didn't remember I was wearing shoes into the house. I stood in front of the mirror & screamed. “OH HE-CK NO, I DON’T WEAR DRESSES!!!” I had on a frilly pink dress with red ruffles on the edges, a purple string laced over it, red pumps with pink & red bows in my hair. My black hair was in pigtails that touched my waist. My ears were really pointed & I had a dangling cross earring on each ear. One of my eyes was pink, the other was black & the pupils, instead of circles, were hearts… ah fuck it all. I stomped into the living room, heels banging on the hardwood floor. “Skyfall, explain now!” she smiled, eyelids half open. “You look so cute… I would have died again for a dress like that when I was little! Looks like I was right Nightfall; sexual embarrassment changes her.” Night shook his head jokingly; guess they had a bet running. “Ok, I will pay a visit to that ‘Planetarium’ you seem to enjoy.” Fuck it all. “So why can’t I curse huh?” she looked confused. “Angels have to be pure… no cursing allowed, God’s orders.” I groaned. “But- Actually, out of everything that’s happened to me today, that one phrase made the most sense.” Ty smirked. “If it means anything you look good Angel Face… hehe.” I glared at Ty & tried to flip him off. “Fu-frick you gay boy… look thanks for the offer, but I can’t be this Angel of… what am I the angel of anyway?” Skyfall yawned & leaned on Nightfall. “I'm gonna sleep, its Nightfall’s turn to be up.” soon she was soundly snoring; her falcon snuggled up next to her. Nightfall gently smiled as she leaned on him, hugging him like a body pillow. “You are the Angel of Love because of how you transform & it is what you were born from.” I laughed. “So what I'm like, Cupid now?” he looked at me confused. “What is a ‘Cupid’? Oh you mean one of the false Gods… I assume so.” “Oh joy… all I'm missing is the bow, arrow & diaper...” I grumbled. Nightfall didn’t seem to understand my reference. “Your parents were right; you are very different, but in a good way.” He kept talking about my parents; I guess he knew them in Heaven. “…So what were my parents again?” “They were Guardian Angels… they protected people.” I looked at Nightfall. “Look Night, can I call you Night?” he nodded, petting Skyfall’s head. “I do not mind it.” “I can’t be this angel thing, it’s not my style. Tell God He can find some other person to be His angel.” Night picked up Skyfall bridal style & put her in my bedroom & came back, sitting next to the sleeping Ty on the couch. Ty scooted away to the other end of the couch as if he was truly awake; Night either didn’t notice, or care. “Unfortunately this cannot be done. You will transform any time you feel the same embarrassment as when I kissed you or when someone needs your help. When you do, you will be turned into a wavelength for someone that needs help, it will be relationship wise, such as abuse & cheating.” Ty laughed. “Great, you're a mobile Maury show…” he looked confused, but continued his explanation. “However if you ignore the calls for help, you will never know the joys of heaven or see your parents again.” I froze. Never see them again… “So what now… I mean I can’t drag Ty into this.” At the sound of his name, he sat up, shook his head & stood up to leave. “Huh… oh yeah, you're here.” He said, referencing Night. “Later Angel Face… I’ll miss you.” He kissed my forehead; I was confused by his statement & action but he had left before I could ask about it.
Night muttered something. “What is it now huh?” I tried to take this stupid dress off, but it wasn’t working. Every tear I made repaired itself & the heels would re-strap themselves to my feet. “I believe I should mention this to you. Like I said, we were sent to protect you, so we must stay here & live with you for the time being, as well as go to this… school thing humans go to.” I looked at him like he was crazy. “Are you freaking serious… you can’t live here with me! If my god-parents found out someone, let alone someone of the male sex suddenly started living with me, they'd blow a gasket!” He kept talking, ignoring every protest that came out of my mouth. “We will also be training you to be a true Angel. I will be your Sensei & as for your god-parents, they are undercover angels. They knew about our arrival.” I sat down next to him; knowing I was beat… plus these heels were killing me.
“Fine then, how long will you stay?”
“Until you get your wings, then we can leave if you wish.”
“When do I get those?”
“Since you are the Angel of Love, you will get your wings when you experience true love for someone & they return it twice as strongly.”
"It can never be easy."
I sighed; there’s always a catch. He gently held my chin in between his thumb & index finger. “What was it that human called you earlier? ‘Angel Face’ was it…? The name suits you very well; you are a very beautiful angel…” I hit his hand away from my face. This guy had to have been a player when he was alive… he's so flirty when he got comfortable. “Frick off Night…” He smiled & stood up. “As you wish Angel Face, I merely thought you would like to know how to change back.” Oh I hate this guy… with every fiber of my being. “Tch… fine how do you do it anyway?” he smiled & kissed my forehead. “Why you-” “Think about the kiss I left on your forehead & you will be fine.” Then he walked away, disappearing into the darkness of the hallway, his bat close behind.
