The Angel of death.
Calleigh was walking around on up in the sky waiting for another person to die so she could go down to get him or her. She sighed, walked over to God and sat down next to him and said, "Can't I just have one day off I've been working forever."
"You know I can't give you that, someone has to bring them over to the other side," he said.
"I guess," she said.
"Something wrong?" he asked.
"No no, I just feel a bit lonely when I look at the couples down at earth sometimes and it's really sad when I have to get a husband or a wife," she said.
"You don't like your job?" he asked.
"I do, really, cause I getto meet all kinds of people," she said, and thought of all the people that was up there doing different things.
"Yeah and I getto meet the ones here and the one down there to teach them things," he said.
"You got a book about you," she said with a giggle.
"Oh yes the famous Bible, very good book," he said.
"Is it all true?" she asked.
"Yes, oh seems like you are going to pick up a little girl in Miami," he said.
"But she's only five, that's not fair those people down there are so cruel to each other, can't you make them stop?" she asked.
"I'm sorry, but that is their choice," he said.
"You made man so you should be able to," she said.
"I also gave them free will, so they can stop when they want," he said.
"True, see you a bit later," she said and left.
Calleigh sat down by the little stabbed girl and said, "Just let go, you'll go to a better place then this."
"But I don't wanto leave my mum behind," said the little girl.
"You'll meet her again, I promise, just come with me, your mother will be fine," said Calleigh.
"You think she'll think of me?" the girl asked.
"I do, I think she loves you a lot and that she'll miss you," said Calleigh.
"Can I come visit her?" the girl asked.
"I'm not sure you have to ask God," said Calleigh.
"I don't want her to be all alone," said the girl.
"No matter what happens I promise she'll be fine are you ready to go," said Calleigh.
"Yeah, can I get a dog when we get there, because my mum never let me have one," said the girl.
"Of course," said Calleigh and took her hand to take her up to heaven.
"God," said Calleigh when she had come back up.
"Yes, Calleigh," he said and looked at her with his brown eyes.
"Can I ever get children?" she asked.
"No," he said.
"But how come when you got a son," she said.
"Since you're an angel and you can't have a child with a man, it would be impossible and you know angels can't have children with each other," he said and looked at her.
Calleigh looked at him, his hair was grey, his eyes brown and full of wisdom, he was tall with wide shoulders and he was fit even if he was old.
"How long have I been here?" she asked.
"For 100 years or more I think," he said.
"And I still look young, I can never age, I can never have anyone and I can never have a child, it's just..." she stopped.
"You can always barrow Jesus," said God.
"Nah, he's all grown up, but he's a nice guy," she said and smiled at him.
"I think so to," said God and smiled back.
"Better head back down it's another dying person in Miami," she said.
"See you later then," he said as she left again.
When Calleigh got back up she went into the bathroom to fix herself up, why she didn't really know since it was not like she was going to meet anyone other than the people she took away, but it didn't hurt to look her best.
She yawned a bit and splashed some water in her face to try to freshen up a bit since she had been on the run on what felt like basically the whole day, but it was hard to tell since time hardly moved up in heaven.
Calleigh looked at her reflection in the mirror when she realized one of her earrings was gone and annoyed said, "Hell, not again."
"Calleigh," she heard God's voice rumble.
"I'm sorry, but that was one of my favorite pair, mind if I go down to look for it?" she replied, even though he was not in the ladies room and far away he could always hear when she cursed.
"No, not at all, but no more cursing and don't take to long since you have more people that needs to be taken away," he said in a straight tone.
"I won't promise, mind if I take a lunch break while I'm down I'm kinda hungry since I haven't had time to eat yet," she said.
"No, eat away", he said.
"Thanks see you later oh and will you tell Jesus that we're on for chess a bit later forgot to tell him yes and he said he would stop by you," said Calleigh.
"I will when I see him, he is running later," said God with a sigh.
"Nothing new there then," said Calleigh with a giggle.
"Oh just run along with you," said God.
Calleigh just giggled and went down to the house of the man she just taken up.
