Manna from Heaven
The second however was short, rotund, definitely female, almost grandmotherly. She bounced, bobbed, smiled, pointed. Her wings were out, bumped into things, blue, matching her hair. She was not ‘angel-like’ at all. One hand was out, not touching the orbs that floated around them, coaxing them when she knocked them off balance, but managing somehow to caress the inner energy, making them sparkle, awaken, before she moved on, the small fireworks, the soul within returning to sleep.
‘Anael! Must you disturb them?’
Anael, the Angel of Passionate Love stopped in her tracks, toes digging into the grass. ‘Haamiah! I am not disturbing them!’ She made a moue with her mouth. ‘I’m simply…’
‘Disturbing them.’ They continued to wander, occasionally stopping to look…
‘Tis getting crowded.’ Haamiah, the Angel of all that was Ethical perused the endless parade of orbs. ‘We should tend to this garden, send these waiting souls to Rashnu so he can prepare them for the Almighty for Judgment.’
Again, Anael silently grimaced. Rashnu was pompous, took his duty much too seriously, in her opinion. In addition, Anael disliked this particular duty with Haamiah, but it was her penance for her quick tongue so she decided to… to keep… it… from weeding the garden too severely. She looked over those in limbo; so many in need of second chances, a different outlook, things could have been different. One dark orb in particular caught her eye and with a deep sigh, she steered her companion in the opposite direction.
For close to 800 years, she had protected that one, kept it - him - safe, out of harm’s way. Hidden and away from anyone’s eye. Under perfect circumstances, if they arose, she could and would personally approach Douma, the Thousand Eyed Angel of Death, to give this one a second chance; to undo what had been done. Sometimes, Douma acquiesced.
But Anael had a good feeling about this one. If only… if only…
He just needed someone to love him back. Someone who could show him that power was not… was not…
If she could find the perfect woman... the perfect situation…the perfect instance…the perfect timing… the perfect...
The perfect something...
She sighed. Putting herself between Haamiah and the black orb, she effectively blocked the view of the austere and rather unforgiving angel and moved off away.
Protecting the dark knight for yet another century.
