This chapter is extremely short because I'm evil like that :)


Chapter 16: Sick

I rocked back and forth on my bed.

"Momma…" I whispered, "I wish you were here to hold me tight and tell me everything's okay.

~Flash back~

I stood in the doorway of my house.

"Mommy!" I screamed, and Shayde walked over to me, his eyes normal and happy.

"Shhh, Lita, it's okay." He whispered in my ear, and his hand slid over my throat. I felt a squeezing pain. Blade's dad looked over me. His eyes were flashing from grey to red. I screamed, and Blade ran into the house behind me. Blade pulled me away from his brother, and punched him in the face. I was ten, Blade was thirteen, Shayde was sixteen. I don't know how Blade hurt his brother, but blood was everywhere. My mother's blood was being drained by Blade's mother. Blade had pulled me out of my house, and ran with me. I had kept up with him luckily, being a guardian and all.

"B-Blade…" I gasped out, "I..I can't breathe…" Blade stopped and looked me in the eyes.

"You know what just happened? He asked, and I shook my head no. My blonde bangs scraped against my forehead. "My parents just killed yours. To become Fallen." My mouth dropped open.

"B-but…But. They were friends. Blade? What's happening. I'm confused." Blade glared at me.

"Your parents are dead Lita, and it's my parents fault. If I didn't pull you out of there, you would have died."

~Flashback over~

I held my pillow to my body. I never understood what happened to angel's souls. We were already in Heaven, what happens to them?

"Well my darling, angels technically don't have souls." I jumped and turned around. It was Shayde.

"Get out of here." I growled, and Shayde walked towards me.

"Temper, temper; little angel. What's wrong?" I flicked him off, and he vanished. Suddenly, a warm pair of arms wrapped around my waist from behind. I wriggled out of his hold, and glared at Shayde.

"Pervert." I snapped, "You're aware you're twenty-one and I'm only fifteen, right?"

"But you're sixteen in a month, and I only just turned twenty one! And Blade's birthday is next year. He'll be eighteen you know." I sighed.

"Yes Shayde, I'm aware of our birthdays." Shayde simply smiled, and shook his head.

"I can see why my brother loves you, you're truly intoxicating." Shayde whispered, putting his lips to my ear. The room spun, I felt dizzy all of a sudden and my head felt like it was going to explode. I covered my mouth with my hand, and tightly gripped the blankets of my bed. I coughed. Violent vibrations of air came from my throat , and I gasped for air.

"Holy shit…" Shayde said, I felt something on my hand. My mouth tasted blood, and my blurry vision saw it come out onto my hands. The world disappeared.
