“Well like Leo said it’s more of a bribe than a decision of good will. If you at any point want to make a wish, of any kind, as long as it’s do able we can grant it.” she said with a little smile on her face.
“Do I have to make it now?”
“No and there really isn’t a expiration date for it either.” Reburta reassured me, then turned to Leo. “Leo you’ll be this girls guardian angel.”
Leo looked a little confused, “I thought you wanted me for an errand? I’m not qualified for that and even if I was no way.”
“Leo you are more than qualified for this job besides for the first time in a few centuries I wasn’t the one who chose you. If I chose someone it would have been Sen and Shaun.” she said giving him a meaningful look.
His eyes narrowed on hers. “You mean-?”
“Yes that is exactly what I mean and that there is no running away from this.”
“Fine.” he practically growled, throwing me look as if I had done him wrong before he stormed out of the room.
“Did I…?”I asked a little hurt.
“No sweetie he has always been a little out of character since he was knighted an angel. But then again his mortal life wasn’t very forgiving either.” she said looking said. “Oh dear we have to get you back to your body on earth they’re about to declare you dead!”
“But how am I suppose to get back?”
“Leave that to me, now close your eyes.”
Painful didn’t even begin to explain how it felt when I back to earth, and I was so out of touch with reality on all the Morphine I was hallucinating. For three long months I sat in that hospital bed unable to do anything, the doctors had said it was a miracle that I was alive and that my heart had stopped. They told me I had broken three ribs, fractured my left arm in two places and my leg in four places. But “luckily” I hadn’t fractured the skull of my brain or broken my spine.
When things got better and I went into phase two of my healing process they allowed me to go home with regular check ups. Mom and Dad were so happy to have me home they took two whole days off for “family time”. Even though it was a little corny I had to admit it was so bad, I even let Chase and Billy be the first to sign my casts.
Shari had told me all the excoriating details of what she heard through the phone when I was hit and how traumatized she was after she heard I died at one point. I rolled my eyes at the drama and wondered why I chose to have a drama queen as a best friend.
The day I went to get my casts removed were the happiest day of my life, no more hassle getting up the stairs or taking a shower. But even though I was relieved to get them removed I couldn’t help wondering where Leo was? He hadn’t been very friendly when we first met but I hoped to change that.
My body hurt a lot when I returned from the doctors and I wasn’t to happy to hear my parents decided to buy me a new car to replace the twisted metal that was once my beloved car.
Walking up the stairs I clung to the railing just incase I did the unthinkable and breathed a sigh of relief as I reached the top of the stairs and went to my room. I decided that a long hot shower followed by my favorite movie would be a great healing session on my still wounded body.
Grabbing my tang top and pajama pants I went into the bath room and turned on the water waiting to get it the right temperature. While walking by the mirror I caught a look at my reflection.
I have had people tell me that I had matured into a beautiful young women, but I looked average. I was five foot five and a half inches tall with light brown skin and mid-back length dark brown hair. I had a clean complication, light pink lips, high cheek bones and beautiful light brown eyes. I was glad I like to run and thankful for my womanly figure.
The shower was absolutely heavenly and help loosen my tight muscles in my back and shoulders. It felt great to be clean as I flopped lazily on my couch and was happy for gods greatest invention…the remote! Mine was special it controlled my stereo, my TV, the DVD player, surround sound, the heat and my curtains. Ahh life was good.
I turned on the TV, DVD, and just sat back.
I must have fallen asleep during the movie because I was still on the couch when I suddenly woke up at midnight. Another odd thing wrong with me was I had a bad habit of waking up at midnight not a minute before and not a minute after.
Suddenly I realized someone had put a blanket on me, ‘Who -?’ I thought when I suddenly heard a someone playing an acoustic guitar out on my balcony.
Walking over to my sliding glass doors I peered out to see no one was out there, but I could still hear it so clearly. The music was a soft lullaby, the notes blended together so perfectly I seemed to be pulled to it and soon found myself out on the balcony. I even began to hum it without realizing it, I knew it from somewhere but where?
Then just as suddenly as it began it was gone and I found myself wanting to hear it again so I began to look around to see where it had come from when I looked up at the roof…there he was.
“Hey.” I said somewhat breathless. “That was you wasn’t it?”
He merely shrugged, set his guitar aside and looked at me as if he expected me to say something else.
“Is there something on my face?” I asked rubbing my face a little, but nothing was there.
“She didn‘t tell you did she?” he asked his eyes dark making me feel a little uneasy.
I was a little confused but was to stubborn to let him intimidate me. “What?” I glared.
