Just A Story #5 – Archangel


“I am Chronos after all” He smiles wryly while holding the rear door open for me. For a short moment I am left alone with the sound of the rain falling against the car roof. I don’t understand. “Ed! I ask you to tell me what is going on, immediately!” I hoped my firm voice would bring the point across, yet Ed doesn’t even look back at me. “Erin, dearest, you can ask me anything you like once we recover your memory.” He starts the engine. Right, I don’t even know what we’re going to do next. Heck, I don’t know anything! “Where are we heading and where’s Paine?! We can’t leave without her!” Ed’s eyes meet mine in the rear mirror. “To the lab. Paine will probably be there before us. Anything else?” I don’t like this. I don’t like this one bit!

“Yes. I want to know why we’re running from those people. Who are they anyway?” A short moment of silence follows before I hear Ed’s chuckle. “Those people aren’t people at all. You’ve remembered that, haven’t you?” The winged man...It can’t be… “Angels?” My voice came out higher than intended. Ed glances through the rear mirror and confirms my words with a brief blink and nod. “Not just any angels, you are being hunted down by Lord Ismael himself.” Is-mael? “Ed, are you for real? I’ve never even heard of this before! This is not funny! Just tell me the truth, it can’t be that hard!” Ed points his index finger to the front window without letting go of the steering wheel: “Proof enough?” My heart skips a beat – feathers! – actual feathers stick to the glass! Suddenly I am very, very scared. He isn’t joking. This actually is real. “I’ve been killed by an angel.” What does that make me?

“Except you never died.” There’s nothing I can say about this. It’s such a mess. I simply vanished from this world, like I’ve been erased. The media published a suicide story to explain the sudden disappearance of the representative’s daughter. I am dead yet I’m alive. And now my past comes haunting me. “I haven’t done anything to upset any angels! I lived an ordinary life! This doesn’t make any sense!” I think I’ve gone insane. Maybe I’m having a weird dream, hallucinating? This can’t be happening – yet the feathers on the glass mockingly stare at me. I’m going to die for real this time… but maybe that’s for the better. A tear rolls down my cheek. Suddenly I feel my body press against the seat. We’re going faster now. “My, you girls keep getting me in trouble. Thanks for that! Life as Alltheia’s top medical dog was never as exciting!” Ed purrs while maneuvering the car through the traffic before making a sharp turn into a narrow street. A dead end.

He turns around and wipes the tear off my cheek. “You know, Ismael is not that bad.” I watch him unfasten his seat belt before turning towards me again: “He simply does his job.” Ed opens the door with a fleeting smile and gets out of the car. I haven’t noticed the heavy fog form around us! Something is going to happen… It turns very quiet again before I feel a shockwave hitting the car. I squint my eyes trying to see through the fog as suddenly the driver’s door opens behind me. “I bought us some more time. Ed Chronos at your service!”

  1. I think my comments are gonna seem repetitive but I can’t help it.
    I can not wait for the next one. You always end the post at such a cliffhanger moment. The kind of feeling I’m getting now is worse than that after a GoT episode.

    Amazing post Moon. How do you write so well :’)

      1. Cliffhanger endings only happen when the person is completely involved in the story. So I guess its a damn good thing!
        Aye, I’m the one who should be thanking you for writing so beautifully.

      2. Yeah! I think if you’re not involved while you’re writing, it won’t really come out that well. But even then, with your full involvement, you may fail to express what you wanted to. It requires some skill to make other people feel as involved as you did and that you have.

      3. I’m humbled, thank you for the kind words :’) the thing is, when writing a story you have all the details in your mind but it’s hard to imagine how it sounds like to a person who does not have all the info and reads it for the first time!

      4. That’s what. That’s why it’s not possible for everyone to become an author. It’s like how not everyone can be an artist. Just because one has a beautiful voice, they can’t become a singer. There’s more to art than what meets the eye and writing is a form of art.

      5. A friend of mine once pointed this out to me, that there’s no such thing as talent, only pre-dispositions. Actually most of famous artists (specifically in the manga/comic section) would say this, too. It’s because nowadays the demand for stuff is too high, people can’t rely on talent alone anymore. They need to actively train folks to do the jobs and bring in the cash :D

      6. But I really believe that there’s a thing like natural talent dude. I mean, yeah okay. I’m wrong when I said “Not everyone can do everything”. Maybe you can train yourself to do anything. We are humans after all.
        But there’s definitely something called natural talent. It makes it easier for you to learn a few things more quickly than others.

      7. Just okay, yeah xD
        I’m allergic to some food, I think, so I got rashes. They burnnn. I mean I’ve been having these skin problems since 3 years now and all these medicines were just a short term solution. Bah.
        YAY! :D

      8. That sucks. I have no experience with allergies so I don’t know what to say at this point. I hope you can find a way to deal with it. BTW I just listened to your track! I especially like how the song starts. Nothing to be embarassed about! I hope you make more. You just seem to have the same issue like me when it comes to drums :D They’re really diffcult to do. I used a random loop from the library in Rainy Days because writing drums drives me crazy.

      9. Oh! I didn’t know what I was doing this was like a 3 hour thing and I was so proud of how it came out xD
        Anyway, I’ll try to learn how everything works and then make one so that you like it :)
