“Why'd he call you Night Owl huh? He’s human so-” “Listen to me carefully Angelica without panicking. Him calling me Night Owl awakened a memory; I remember where I know them from… they burned down my home. He told me so earlier; the others are gonna meet up with us soon.” I was stunned, but kept running. Soon his bat began to follow us. “There's one thing I don’t understand; why doesn’t anyone see us?” I said painting outside the mall. Night wasn’t breathing hard at all; I noticed his wings were out. “Humans only see us if they need us… right now they could c- LOOK OUT!” he pushed me to the ground as an arrow of fire shot past us. “Damn it Cinder you missed you useless bitch!” “Oh fuck off Clear; I’d love to see you do better without your glasses bastard!” I suddenly heard Clear & Cinder’s voices from up above. No way; I looked up & saw two bat-like creatures that looked like Clear & Cinder but… eviler. The both had grey & red wings, but for the most part, looked the same as they did a minute ago. Cinder held a bow & arrow made of fire while Clear had a sword of fire. I smelled something burning. “Is that what you meant when you said they smelled?” Night nodded. “Demons give off certain smells attributed to their powers that only angels notice… tch I should have recognized it sooner.” He seemed to be beating himself up over it pretty bad. “Relax… so this is an undercover demon; to think I looked up to him when I was little.” Night was stunned. “YOU WHAT; HOW COULD YOU ADMIRE A DEMON!?!” I laughed. “I took up sword fighting when we were small; I beat him of course, but he helped me be as good as I am now with his insults.” Night glared at me. “Don’t scare me like that, goodness.” “FUCKING LOVEBIRDS, YOU TWO DONE DRY HUMPING YET!?!” Cinder started yelling her head off. “Clear, go on before they start up again…” Clear started talking. “I knew you were an angel, but literally wow; this is amazing.” Clear was hugging himself, drool running down his mouth. He looked pitiful… I almost felt sorry for him. “You dumbass, it’s why Master sent us here!” Clear nodded in response to Cinder. “This will be amazing; watching Master Lucifer cut you open & seeing what's inside as you beg for mercy. Who knows… maybe if we do a good job of bringing you to him, I might be able to burn you later on, just like I did to Night Owl’s home over there.” I began breathing heavily; it was like I was coming undone mentally at his descriptions. “Oh the fun of raping someone like you will be… heavenly.” I looked at Night; he shook with such anger that it looked like he was trembling in fear. Suddenly the sky turned dark, so I knew Skyfall was somehow hearing this too. “You… you killed our family… you destroyed our home… our village… killed everyone… women… men… children… us.” Night was midnight black again & in his normal Angel clothes, but something was off; they seemed wilder… not as angelic, the same went for his hair & wings. His voice was a mix of his & Skyfall's; it sounded like a thunderstorm at night. Despite my fear welling up, I put my hand on Night’s shoulder to calm him down. “Cool it you two; I know you're mad, but cool it.” When Night looked at me, his entire eye was completely brown… scary. “No; he just said-” I nodded. “I know & he told me that he was gonna rape & burn me, but don’t let everything he says get to you; he's doing it on purpose, just like with me & the lighter.” I put everything I had into those words & Night slowly relaxed, his eyes becoming normal. “Aha… amazing Angel of Love oh… but no wings; you are just so amazing. Well you know what they say; a down bird is a dead one.” He flew straight at me, as I braced for impact a whirlwind of leaves divided us. I saw Flora holding a red rose; blowing on it, I guess it was creating this whirlwind. A large monarch butterfly was above dealing with Cinder. “Tch, why are you always getting in the way Fire Wood?” Flora smirked. “You know me; I grow everywhere. Now get out of here Clear & Cinder; tell Luci he can’t have her got it?” Skyfall was in a bubble of leaves, dark black like her brother. Her falcon was her same color & screeching angrily. “Tch… see ya later Love.” Then he & his sister flew off.
Later that night, I was at home, watching TV on the couch around midnight. “So what'd you get from the store huh?” Skyfall was still up, which was surprising. Normally, when the moon comes up, she's asleep but I guess she was so excited about her clothes she stayed up. She had a cute blue skirt, white leggings & a white T-Shirt. “Isn't it cute!?! I’ll look like I'm in the clouds still. What do you think Cloud?” her falcon, whose name I finally learned was Cloud, snuggled close to her & chirped happily. I nodded. “Now you remember what we talked about right.” She nodded. “We’re family friends of yours staying with you under the request of Father & were going to school with you… um… is that it?” I nodded. “& remember…” she saluted me. “No one can know about us being angels or else we can end up in a room with padded walls! But it does sound like fun!” I smiled at her. “Good girl, now time to go to sleep ok.” She hopped up & changed into her PJ’s.
I walked outside once I knew she was sleeping. I had on a red robe; it was still a little chilly out, but nothing too bad. This winter has been really warm… wonder what it could be. I stepped out on the back porch & called out. “Hey Night, c’mon inside; we have school tomorrow & you need to be there fully rested.” There was a small bat that flew in front of my face & perched itself on my shoulder; it was Yuki. “Hey cutie…” I ruffled up the fur underneath his chin & kissed his head. He chirped happily. I felt a hand on my shoulder & turned around quickly. “Better… but you need to train more.” I put my hands over my ears. “Yeah, yeah, yeah… hey I got a question; today when I changed my skin was light pink… is that normal for an in-training Angel?” he shook his head. “I do not know to be honest, but skin change is right before wing growth.” He suddenly teetered over & I caught him. “That’s it, time to sleep.” He stood up & tried to protest. “But I have to-” “Save it. You’re sleeping in my room with your sister & that’s that.” I carried him into the house & laid him next to his sister. I took the guest room in the back & tried to sleep.
In the morning I woke up in the same bed as Skyfall & Night. I sat up, but realized I was pinned down. “The hell…” I saw their arms wrapped around my waist. They looked so cute sleeping… except for the fact that their wings were out. “Guys get up, we have school today…” they slowly opened their eyes. “Hm…? School… WE HAVE SCHOOL!!!” They hopped up out of bed & got dressed in their new clothes; Skyfall was giggling like a mad-man. I walked out & got dressed myself, smiling. “They are so weird…” I had a pair of jeans & a tank top on. “Nice look Angel Face but-” I felt Night’s fingers go around my neck. I jumped a little, but realized he wasn’t choking me. I felt some warmth where he touched. “This might help you look even better…” he removed his hands & a nice necklace with a heart on it fell, untangling. I turned to look at him. He wore a black shirt with a crescent moon on the front, black jeans, grey jacket & fake gold glasses. He still wore his one earring & necklace; if I didn't know better, I would’ve said he was human, Goth sense of style, but human. “You don’t look half bad yourself. Oh yeah we might not have all of our classes together-” he held up a hand, his signal to stop & grabbed my hand, like he was courting me. “Do not worry; you remember the kiss I gave you on your forehead?” I turned my head to the side. “How the fuck could I forget.” I muttered as he smiled. “If you need me, then think about me… or any of us & we will be right there next to you ok.” I nodded. “HEY, WHO WANTS BREAKFAST; I MADE EGGS & BACON WITH PANCAKES!!!”
“Will Ms. Angelica Smith & her guests please come to the office?” I stood up & motioned for them to follow. They refused to move, I saw their skin change slightly… “What was that?” they said in a panic as I smiled. “It was the loudspeaker, this way we can hear what's going on in the office.” They relaxed about 20 notches as we walked into the principal’s room. “Ah, Angel wonderful of you to be here, please you must take a seat.” I sat down while Skyfall & Night stood up behind me. I looked up at them; they seemed on edge around Mr. Waves. “Ah, Nightfall & Skyfall Saito, my star students; it’s so wonderful of you to take on this huge responsibility for Heaven.” Fuck not him too; I sank low in the chair, almost about to fall out. “You have got to be kidding me… you to Mr. Waves?” he nodded as Skyfall & Night bowed to him. “So who was he to you guys?” Skyfall spoke with enthusiasm. “He was our teacher in Heaven, he trained all the new recruits… he was born in Heaven.” He stood up & clapped his hands. “All right, let’s see this new transformation I've heard so much about!” I shifted in my seat. “You mean right now?!?” he nodded. “But of course, you’ve been training with my best angel over there, surly he’s taught you how to change on your own.” I glared at Nightfall. “To be honest I tried it once, but almost passed out… let me try now since I'm not under pressure that if I don’t, I won’t fall to my death.” Mr. Waves grew concerned. “What happened now?” I pointed to Night with my middle finger on purpose. “He was carrying me as he was flying & said that if I didn’t transform right then & there, he’d let me fall. Oh yeah; SCREW YOU NIGHT!!!” I calmed down & thought of the most embarrassing thing I could; back in 7th grade, when I started growing boobs, I ripped my shirt on accident doing a flip for a pep rally. Everyone saw my bra & laughed about it for weeks. I focused all my energy on how I felt, remembering Night’s words. When I opened my eyes I was transformed, I didn't see my skin color changed in the slightest. “Just marvelous… it’s so fitting you are the Angel of Love. Well now it’s only fair if you see me I suppose.” I watched as waves of water engulfed my principal & when they dissipated, his skin was the same color as Skyfall's, but his wavy hair was a short sea-green, looking like it was an ocean in its self. “Ocean Waves, Angel of the Ocean & trainer of Angels; which reminds me as to why I called you here.” He changed back to normal as I watched sea foam drip down his body. I focused on the center of my forehead & did the same; I saw hearts fall off of me when I changed back. He rummaged through a desk & was muttering. Skyfall seemed to know what he was looking for. “Ocean Sensei, are you gonna give her a weapon?” he nodded. “Yep… once I find it… dang it where is it?” Night calmly walked over to his bottom drawer, opened it & pulled out some hidden weapon. “Ah, thank you Nightfall; you always knew me well.” Mr. Wave handed me a wonderfully wrapped small item. It was wrapped in a pink & black cloth, with a red ribbon tied around it & purple embroidery on it; it was too beautiful to open. I looked at him with worry. “Well go on, it won’t kill ya!” “But everything else so far has tried to…” Mr. Waves laughed. “Ah well; here goes everything.” Slowly taking off the soft cloth, the red ribbon falling to the floor revealing- oh you have to be shitting me. “Are you… fucking kidding me…” it was a purple steel stick of red lipstick. I opened it up & turned it… fuck I was dumbfounded. “The fuck; what am I supposed to do with this? Give Clear & Cinder makeovers? Oh… sorry Mr. Waves…” Mr. Wave smiled & handed it to Night. “It’s no problem. Well, put it on her Nightfall; I suppose she can’t do it herself…” “All right… fine…” Night came close to my face; my face got red with anger at that comment, so I snatched it away from Night. “I can do it just fine; I watched Mom do it every day…” I slowly applied it; my lips were the color of cherries. “Now blow a kiss.” I looked at him like he was crazy. “C’mon Mr. Wave… ugh fine.” I looked at the wall & blew a kiss at it. A red set of lips flew at the wall & exploded in hearts. “I present to you the Lipstick Love, your very own Angel Weapon… now we must hurry, wipe it off. We have an assembly for Skyfall & Nightfall here.”
