“You’re a what??!!” Sharry said, her mouth hanging open. “An Angel. I’m an Arch Angel.” He said impatiently, as if she should already know this. “Ha! Right!” Sharry laughed, “Hey! Look at me, I’m flying in the arms of an Angel!” “Hey, wasn’t that a song?!” She was laughing hysterically now, “In the arms of an Angel…” she sang out! She thought that maybe she was losing it. “Can you just fly on over to the nearest mental hospital?” She said. “I think I’m losing my mind!!” He, or rather, Michael, sighed and looked at her sympathetically,”I know it’s probably a lot to take in. I also probably didn’t introduce myself in the nicest way…” “You think??” Sharry interrupted,”Not the nicest way!!! A bit of an understatement, wouldn’t you say!! You were a dick!! Michael, a real jerk actually!! Tonight and back when you were Mr Nightmare! Nice way to bond with a child!!” His eyes turned dark as he looked down at her. “You know, I could just drop you right now!” Michael yelled. “Whoa…quite the temper you have! Are all Angels asses? Or is it just you??” Sharry said while smirking. He scowled down at her. “You have quite the mouth on you Sharry. You’re so going to be a pain in my ass!!” He remarked. “A pain in your ass! Me! I’m the pain??!!” She shrieked! “I’m not the one who transported me from my office to a creepy, mysterious, wolf ridden forest!” Sharry was shaking with anger. “No! That’s on you!! All of this…this…whatever this is, it’s all. Because. Of. You!!!” Suddenly Sharry felt completely overwhelmed by everything that had happened! Sharry felt tears coming to her eyes.”Oh no!”she thought. “I’m not going to cry in front of this jerk!” But it was too late. The tears had already started coming. He looked at her and his eyes immediately softened. “I’m sorry Sharry.” He said. “You’re right!” “I was an ass.” “Don’t cry, please don’t cry.” “I’m going to get us somewhere safe, so we can talk. Just hang on!” He said as he flew lower and lower, until they landed by a pond, surrounded by beautiful flowers, more flowers than she had ever seen in one place.
Sharry looked around in awe. She was no botanist, but she was pretty sure that every flower she had ever seen or heard of was there, in this beautiful, exquisite garden. There were so many colours and smells. She just stood quietly, taking it all in, while trying to calm down and stop crying. She had no idea what time it was. Jake must be worried sick! “What is this place? It’s so beautiful and lovely.”Sharry asked. “It’s so magnificent that it almost seems fake! This many flowers all blooming at the same time. Not a twig or stem out of place! Kudos to your gardener!” Sharry walked over to a beautiful, ornate, white bench and sat down. She gestured to Michael to come sit with her, but had no idea how he’d manage it with those wings of his. He tucked them behind himself and somehow, easily managed to fit. “So…”Sharry said. “What is going on? I deserve to know why you spirited me from my office, to a strange forest, where we were nearly wolf meat! Then you say you can fly and suddenly, it’s up up and away!!”
Michael sighed, but slowly nodded his head. “You’re right. You do need to know what’s happening.” “You believe me? You understand that I’m an Arch Angel right?” Michael asked. “Sure Mike or maybe, Mikey! Which do you like better?” She asked. Michael scowled, “I like Michael .” “Okay! Don’t get bent out of shape or anything. I was only joking…do you smile, ever??” As she asked him, she remembered his horrific laugh and what it had done to her ear-drum. “On second thought, serious is good! There’s no need to smile or laugh.” She said putting her hand up to her throbbing ear. Michael grinned. “Sure, thinking about my pain makes you smile. Of course! Just great!”Sharry said. “So”, she said. “Why in the world would an Arch Angel need to be in my childhood dreams and here now? Why me?” “Because of the prophecy of course,” Michael said. “What prophecy? What are you talking about??” Sharry asked him. “You really don’t know?” He asked. “Didn’t pretty boy Jake tell you all about it? Let me know what he’s told you and I’ll fill in the blanks.” “Jake?” She said, “my Jake?” “What in the world makes you think that Jake would know anything about some Angel prophecy thing??!” “Because,” he replied, “he’s your Guardian.”
“My what?!” Sharry responded. “Your Guardian.” He said again. “Because Jake’s your Guardian Angel!” Michael looked at the shock on Sharry’s face. “You really didn’t know?? You’re kidding me?! He hasn’t told you about the prophecy? You can’t be serious! No wonder you’re freaking out! I’m really the first Angel you’ve met??” Sharry looked away. “Jake’s my guardian Angel?” She thought, “what the hell!!” “No!” Sharry said, “I don’t believe you!” “Believe it or not, it’s the truth.” He said. “Just a minute.” He said. “We should get ol’Jakey boy to come join us.” “Just let me call him.” “I’ll be needing to talk to him anyways, all about him shirking his duties and I just can’t believe that he hasn’t told you anything yet!””You should be far into your training by now!” “My what??!” Sharry asked. But he didn’t answer her. Sharry looked over at him, expecting him to use his cell phone, but nope, he asked her to cover her ears, because he was about to use his Angel voice, whatever that means! Sharry quickly did as he asked, if his true voice was anything like his laughter, she sure didn’t want to hurt both ears in he same night! He did his weird high pitch thing and just as Sharry was about to make a joke about how effective his way of calling was, she heard a sound behind her and sure enough, it was Jake. “Jake!!” She yelled, “you came. You understood what he was saying? It’s true? You’re an, an Angel??!” She was feeling so hurt and angry. Talk about the biggest lie ever!! “How come you didn’t tell me?” Sharry asked. “Jake? I thought you loved me, but you’re just here because you’re my Guardian??” Jake took her hands, “No no!” Jake pleaded. “I wanted to tell you, but never found the right time. I do love you Sharry. More than you can imagine!” He said. “Sharry, what we have is real. That’s part of the reason I didn’t want to tell you. I was afraid I’d lose you and I can’t imagine my life without you.” Michael snorted derivatively at Jake’s last comment. “Damn it!” Sharry thought to herself , ” I’m not going to cry again,” but, of course, she felt the tears coming. “How could you lie like this to me Jake? About something so huge!! I trusted you.” Now she was sobbing and she didn’t even care anymore. “So, Guardian Angels and Arch Angels. Kind of hard to wrap your head around.” She said through her sniffling, “what else is out there that I haven’t been told about?”
