Sharry rolled over and groggily opened her eyes while yawning, she was generally not a morning person!! It took her some time and good coffee to feel fully awake. She yawned and glanced across her room, and saw Jake sitting at her desk, on her computer. “Oh’! Good morning love.” She said while yawning again. Then she suddenly shot up straight in her bed, “Oh my God,” she didn’t even notice him cringe at her blasphemy. “Jake, what are you doing here! If my mom finds you in here she’s going to kill me!!” “Don’t worry hon! Like I told you last night, I’ll just make myself invisible if she comes up. It’s fine.” Jake said to calm her down, but she looked utterly lost and confused. “Oh Shar. I know it’s a lot to take in, but don’t worry, I’ll be with you every step of the way!” Sharry looked at him, tired and confused, she asked, “Why. Are. You. Here??” “Remember,” jake answered, “Lucifer seems to be getting close and, as your guardian Angel, well you’re stuck with me hon! I can’t let you out of my sight! Also, there’s been a bit of a change of plans. Michael called and he wants wants me to start going over some of the abilities testing and he’d like us to practice flying, so we can begin to get you more comfortable with it.” “Flying…?? Angels…??” Sharry mumbled to herself, “it wasn’t a dream?? Well shit…” “Pardon me?” Jake said. Sharry looked over at Jake, “oh nothing.” “You know, Michael thinks you’re one of the stronger niphilims, he’s pretty sure that you can fly! I can’t wait, the two of us soaring above the city, holding hands, going wherever?!” Jake said. “Well, I’m getting ahead of myself, we obviously can’t do that yet. You know, I can’t wait until we find Lucifer and this whole mess is over!!” “Me fly??” Sharry thought, “but I’m not a fan of heights!!”
Sharry didn’t know if she could fly, even after last night, believing in Angels seemed crazy!! And now here she was smack in the middle of this ancient prophecy…!! Was this really happening?? Suddenly her blonde, blue-eyed boyfriend has wings!!! And as crazy as that all sounds he wanted her to fly too! Sharry, “me fly!!??”she said, a little too loudly. “Are you losing your mind!! You know me and heights! And what am I going to do, I don’t exactly have wings you know!!” Jake stood up and walked over to where she was sitting up in her bed, he grabbed her hands and knelt beside her, and said,”try not to be afraid,” interrupting, she said,”Are you crazy??!!” “Shhhhh…”, he said. “You just need to look in my eyes, and trust me. Everything’s going to be okay.” He said calmly,”It’s me, Jake, and I’m not going to hurt you. Or let anything hurt you”Then he pulled his shirt off. Sharry didn’t know if she should look at him or the ground, she felt her her face turning beat red, “Gooodness, he’s ripped!!” She thought to herself. “Uh, What are you doing?” She asked him. He stood up, spread his long arms wide and suddenly between his arms, attached to his torso and back, were two incredible, beautiful, magnificent white wings. “Y’you h’, hav’, have wings!!!” Sharry squealed!! “WINGS!!!! Oh my God! Jake!! You really have wings!! I was trying to convince myself that it wasn’t real. That it was all just a bad dream. But, nope…you really and truly have wings!! Beautiful wings!” She stood up and walked over to him. She couldn’t stop staring. They were magnificent! She walked all around him staring in awe.
Jake smiled, his beautiful, mischievous smile that was so Jake! And said, “well love, sorry to disappoint, but it wasn’t a dream or a nightmare…it was last night!” Full of his usual charm, of course. Sharry was completely speechless! “Jake. Has. Wings.” She thought, over and over as she nervously started pacing in the circle of his wings. “Am I losing my mind?” “What is going on??” She thought, “this is really happening, holy cow, it was real!!” Part of her tried to decide if she should check in to the local looney bin or if she was just going to gaze at him forever…Jake nudged his hand up under her chin, then leaned in and kissed her like they always had and she felt like they always would. Sharry couldn’t help herself and she naturally leaned into him and opened her mouth to his. “Yes. This is still my Jake.” She thought, as he wrapped his arms, and immaculate wings, around her. She had never before felt so wholy and completely loved; she had never felt as safe as she did now, in his embrace. “Holy Shit!!” “I’m in love with an Angel!!” She screamed in her head! Her body aching to move into him, she reluctantly pulled away and whispered to him, “What’s going on??!””How is this possible? Don’t get me wrong, your wings are incredible!! Just. Just. How is this happening? This isn’t happening…I’m asleep! That’s all…it’s just a silly nightmare and I’m going to wake up. NOW! C’Mon. Wake up!” Then she took a deep breath and asked him, “Is this really real??” Jake smiled and nodded, “Y’up! As real as it can get!” “How?” she asked. “What! What is happening?” she asked again. “How can you be an Angel? How can Michael be an Angel? How is all of this even possible?”she shrieked a little too highly. Jake put his hands on her shoulders, “Just calm down! And take a deep breath!”he said. “Once again, last night was real!! You’re not going crazy. Michael and I are Angels and you’re one of the nephilim, a half Angel.”
Suddenly, they heard, “honey? Are you awake? Who are you talking to?” “Shit! It’s my mom!!” Sharry said. Jake instantly disappeared, just as her bedroom door opened and her mom walked in. “Good morning honey,” her mom said, “I thought I heard you talking to someone?” Her mom said. “Oh, I was talking to Jake on speake. We’re going out soon. But I’m starving. I need to grab a bite before he gets here.” Sharry replied. “Let’s go downstairs for breakfast. I’ll make us up some pancakes.” Her mom said. “Awesome mom! Thanks. I’ll be down in five. I’m just going to get dressed.” Said Sharry. “Okay honey, see you in a few minutes.” Her mom kissed her on the cheek, then closed her door and went back downstairs.
Sharry flopped back onto her bed, so relieved that her mom hadn’t seen Jake in all his beautiful Angel glory!! “You need to show up at the front door in about 15 minutes or so, then no one will suspect a thing,” Sharry said to Jake. “Sure!” He said, “see you in a few!!”About 15 minutes later, as Sharry was finishing her pancakes, the doorbell rang. Sharry opened the door and Jake stepped in, no longer obviously looking like an Angel, but still looking as hot as ever. “Mom!” Sharry yelled, “I’m going out with Jake.” They went outside and shut the door.
“Okay, now let’s get somewhere more comfortable. Where we can talk uninterrupted. Privately.” Jake said. Then he scooped her up into his arms and he Started. To. FLY!! “Oh. My. Goodness! I’m going to be sick!! I can’t open my eyes!!” “It’s okay”, Jake said, in a calm and collected manner. Here she was. Freaking Out!!! And Jake was calmly smiling at her. “Where are we going? Where are you taking me? Please don’t drop me!” Sharry hollered! “Don’t worry. We’re almost there.” Jake smiled. “Here we go.” he said. Then, oh so carefully, he gently set her down on the most comfortable down duvet she had ever felt. He held onto her for a moment, to make sure she was secure, then sat down beside her. He leaned back and Sharry looked around. When she saw where she was, she started screaming uncontrollably! “Shhh…Shhh…Shhh…!” He said. “You’re perfectly safe! These clouds are strong and could hold up your entire family! If they were Angels of course!” “Gee’ All two of us??” Sharry said. “How comforting!” They both shared a nervous laugh.
“Sooo…”Sharry said,”Did I ever tell you that I’m afraid of heights??” “It’s something you’re going to have to work on hon. Sorry to say it, but it’s the truth Shar.” Jake replied. “That’s why I didn’t tell you where we were going, I thought you might freak out a bit.” “Actually, it’s beautiful up here. It’s like I’m dreaming!” She whispered lying back carefully. “Just don’t you dare leave me up here. Please! Not even as a joke!! Like I’m pretty sure Michael would! He’d probably think something like that was funny!” “Of course not!”he exclaimed! “Sharry. I love you!” He said “Everything that I have done, has been done to protect you! With someone like Lucifer after you…well. It was time for Michael to let you know. He saw that I wasn’t doing it and it needed to be done and he was right. You needed to know the truth. So that we can train you and protect you and keep you safe. And so that you can learn to protect yourself!” Jake looked serious, “Michael was right in telling you, I waited too long. He’s not really that bad. He is just direct and,” he nudged her, “he’s certainly not used to people standing up to him or talking back.” They laughed again. “So, I’m trying not to freak out, but can you please tell me why we aren’t falling right through this cloud??” Sharry asked. “To be honest,” Jake said, “I don’t really know why. It’s something to do with being Angels, we automatically almost float or something. It’s difficult to put into words. Humans would fall right through!!” “What!!” Sharry shrieked, “then why am I staying?” “It’s one of the tests.” He said, “remember, you’re half Angel!” “A test?!” She yelled, “this was a test!! Oh my goodness!!What if I failed?? Would I have fallen Jake??!” Jake just smiled and calmly said, “I would have caught you. Remember, when I first sat you down I was holding you. I was waiting to be sure you were staying put before I let you go. It’s a good sign Shar, if you’re able to stay on top of the cloud, you can probably fly.” Sharry just laughed, “one little problem that you and Michael seem to keep overlooking, I Don’t Have Wings!!”
