Angels of Smith Corporations
The days slipped away, after the death of my love. If there were any hopes of my life completing its cycle, they were locked up and hidden in my attic. This story begins, as my life ends. Trusting that life isn't too hard, I wait in anticipation, for another to take his place.
Desperately, she ran from the train station. Distinct footsteps were easily heard. She was frightened of what was on the other side of the doors. She leisurely pushed the doors open, and automatically forced herself back. The sight was horrible!
Thrusting her self away from the mysterious man, she tripped over a rock and fell to the cold cement ground. A deep chuckle met her ears as she climbed to her feet.
"Deep within the station, my beauty, is another surprise waiting for you." The man's voice was as horrible as he was gorgeous. The woman backed up as he brought himself closer.
"Who are you?" cried the woman, her heart on edge. The man lifted his head, to see into her eyes.
"You are quite the looker, aren't you?" He asked, splendidly. He tipped her chin up with his index and middle fingers and smiled.
"Who are you?" She cried again. He brought his hand down and turned away.
"I am Don Smith. It is nice to make your acquaintance, Miss…" He trailed off for her to tell him her name.
"I am Sapphire Sage." She said quietly. Don smiled.
"Sapphire… It sounds intriguing, for sure." He murmured. He walked around her and placed a green flower, in which he pulled out of his pocket, in her brown curly hair.
"I don't know who you are, who are you?" asked Sapphire. Don ran his fingers in the soft curls and stepped away from her.
"Where was I?" He asked, trying to get his mind straight. Sapphire narrowed her eyes at him.
"You were telling me who you were and why you are terrorizing me." She said. Don laughed melodically and turner from her.
"Follow me," He whispered. Sapphire was unsure of her decision. She reluctantly followed him deep within the station.
"What did you mean there was another surprise waiting for me?" asked Sapphire, as she tracked Don. He took a sharp left and came to an abrupt halt. Sapphire stopped and ran into Don's back.
"What did you stop for?" She asked. Don covered her mouth with his hand.
"Shh." He whispered. He slowly walked forward, despite her cries, and stopped when he came up to a body lying on the floor, motionless.
Sapphire cried out, and fell to her knees.
"What happened?" She asked through her muffled sobs.
Don bent down and examined the body.
"His neck was twisted; he was murdered." Said Don, breath caught in his throat.
"Who was he?" asked Sapphire.
"He was my brother my brother. But, I don't need sympathy from you. You don't know me. You are just my assignment anyway." Don said.
"Assignment, that's what I am? What do you mean?" asked a furious Sapphire. Don turned around and walked over to her.
At that second, without even thinking about what he was doing, Don reached down and pulled her up. He put his arms around her and sobbed into her shoulder.
"Don?" Sapphire asked. She had no idea why he was holding her and crying but she didn't back away.
"Sapphire…" Don murmured into her ear. Sapphire's body was surged with pleasure, when she felt his breath on her ear.
"Yes, Don?" She asked. He closed his eyes tight and forced himself to let go. He turned away and thought to him self, don't do this Don. She is only an assignment. You have no feelings for this girl.
Sapphire just watched him, lost in her own thoughts. I am an assignment? What could he mean? How is it that I trust him? I don't even know him! It would be best to play along.
She shook her thoughts, of his body against hers, out of her head and looked to him again.
Don turned back around.
"What do you mean, I am an assignment?" asked Sapphire. Don sighed.
"I work for the corporation that specializes in helping future angels. That's right, you are future angel. I am an angel." He said.
Sapphire's eyes were wide.
"You are an angel?" She asked. Don nodded. He couldn't help himself; he grabbed her arm and held her once more.
"Don! What are you doing?" She asked.
"I am sorry. I… I can't help myself. "He whispered, and breathed deeply in her hair.
"You are so, beautiful." He whispered, and rubbed her arm with his hand.
"Don, please let me go?" asked Sapphire, upset with her own self for liking to be in his arms again.
Don, breathing deeply in her hair again, said, "No."
Sapphire melted in his arms and laid her head on his shoulder. She closed her eyes and moaned as she felt his muscles through his shirt.
"What is it, Sapphire?" He asked softly, looking down at her.
"Why are you so gorgeous?" she asked. She moved her hands down his torso, and he caught them in his own.
"It's for you." He whispered, and rubbed his cheek against her hair, making her moan.
"I am going to let you go now, okay love?" Don asked. Sapphire looked up at him, desperately.
"Why?" She asked. Don rubbed her cheek with his thumb.
"I need not to involve myself with my assignments." Don whispered. He let her go and muttered a swear word under his breath. He turned around and walked over to his dead brother.
"I know you said you don't want my sympathy, but, I am really sorry. Do you have any idea who killed him?" asked Sapphire, as she walked slowly over to him. She bent down next to him, and draped her arm around his neck. Don moaned.
"Why did you have to touch me?" He asked, turning his head towards her.
"I wanted to. You feel wonderful and muscular." Sapphire whispered, putting her forehead against his.
Don put his hands on her back and pulled her against him.
"Now who is the one touching who?" Sapphire asked, with a smirk.
Don put his hand on the back of her head and covered her mouth with his own. She wrapped her arms around his neck and leaned against his front.
Sapphire moaned in to Don's mouth, as she felt his hands on her lower back and pulled away from him once she came back into her thoughts.
"You are right. Assignments and their leaders should never be in love. Number one, I don't love you anyway." Sapphire started naming things off.
Don nodded. "Right,"
"Number two, this should have never happened."
Don nodded again "Right,"
"Number three, we are going to forget it ever happened."
Don shook his head. "Wrong,"
Sapphire looked at him questioningly. "What?" She asked.
"I don't want to forget. It was a wonderful feeling I don't want to forget. I will want it again, and when I do, you will want it too. So, why forget?" Don reasoned.
Sapphire shook her head and climbed back onto her feet.
"You're wrong. I won't want you anymore than I do now. And I don't…" She trailed off when his mouth covered hers again.
"Don! Stop it!" She yelled, pushing him away. She just stood there, watching him, watch her. She thought for a few seconds and then ran from the station.
"No, Sapphire! Wait!" Don called after her.
Sapphire kept running until she reached the doors. She threw them open and ran out onto the sidewalk.
"No! Sapphire, please don't run." Don called. He grabbed her arm when he came in arms length of her and pulled her close to him.
"Don, I admit…I do want you and the feel of your body against mine, but this isn't going to help anything. I am going to be an angel. How am I supposed to handle that?" Sapphire said, gazing up into his grey eyes.
Don grabbed her hand and pressed his lips to it.
"It is okay. You were assigned to me because I am supposed to help you. I can't do that if you run off." He said. He kissed the tips of her fingers and hugged her.
"You are not alone. You hear me? I am here to help you. Just let me do my job." Don said, securely, with his hands on her arms.
Sapphire cried out. "But, I don't know you!"
Don nodded. "I know. Just give me the chance to get to know you and vice versa. I know it will help." He said calmly. He kissed the top of her head and let her go.
"I am going home." Sapphire said. She turned from him and began walking away.
"Sapphire, I will be over tomorrow morning. I need to talk to you." Don called. Sapphire stopped and walked to him.
"I can't help myself." She whispered before she wrapped her arms around his neck and kissed him deeply.
"Goodness, Sapphire. I didn't know…" Don murmured. He twisted his fingers in her hair and pulled her away from the road. They walked into the alley and sat down on a bench.
"Could you call me Sage from now on, I don't like to be called Sapphire." She asked.
Don brushed hair out of her face and smiled.
"Why in the world? Sapphire is a beautiful name." He asked. Sapphire, or Sage, looked up at him. "That is nice of you to say, but Sapphire was my mother's name. She was very…Evil." She whispered.
"I am sorry, Sage." Don whispered, pressing his lips against her forehead.
"Don, I am shocked. Seducing the assignment isn't a smart thing to do." said a deep mocking voice from behind. Don looked behind him and cussed under his breath. He jumped to his feet and faced the man behind them.
The man's face was scarred and his eyes were dark black.
"Orion, what are you doing here?" asked Don,
Orion smiled. "It is a long story, little brother. I am here to take your charge." He said haughtily.
Don grabbed Sage so quickly, that she felt as if her heart had stopped. He held her close to his front.
"You are not taking Sage away from me. I will kill you if you do!" Don threatened. Sage put her face in Don's jacket and closed her eyes.
There was a bright white flash and they all flew back. Sage landed in Don's lap. He banged into the trashcans and was leaning against the wall, unconscious.
"Don?" Sage asked, and shook him. He didn't open his eyes. "No, DON!" She cried, she stood up and turned around. There was a tall figure standing in the center of the alley, and it wasn't Orion.
