“Yes, as a matter of fact, we are”, I reply to the man before taking a few steps forward. My lucky day, apparently. “Here you go,” I say to the one behind the desk. “Make sure everything’s flawless.” A quick glance and a nod directed at me moments later signifies my freedom.

“Well, nice talkin’ to—”

I stop as I’m interrupted by someone else going on about my appearance. Most of the blabber he so enthusiastically communicates with us doesn’t register in my head until he says a certain word.

“I’m Leia, and you’re very straightforward. I don’t have any oppositions to your request, after all, what is life if not the pursuit of various pleasures? It’s up to him now whether this little party gets going or not.”

Great. This man is starting to ask questions and I don’t even have an answer for him. Why can’t anyone mind their own business anymore?

“We’ll, it’s complicated.”

I pause and stare at him to determine whether he would get the idea.

No, of course not.

“Alright then. From what I generally know, when an angel does something that’s usually frowned upon up there”—I point straight up with a finger—“they get the boot and end up here. I’ve no idea what I did, but I’m sure it doesn’t concern you.”

I reach down to retrieve my application off of the floor.

“Anymore questions?”

Right now I was coming off as a decisively rude individual, but I didn’t care. I thanked him for not letting me fall—or killing me right on the spot for that matter—so I didn’t owe him any favors. Whether he was satisfied or not with my response was definitely not my concern.

The attention was off of me now. Good. I take a step to the right to catch a glance of the line and those that were in front of me and well…there was still a long way to go. With a sigh, I begin to straighten myself out when I notice someone a few spots in front of me. His face caught my attention as we had the same complexion and nearly identical eyes. He must have sensed my gaze upon him because he turned to make eye contact and that’s when it happened.

The first wave was slow, the flash of memories with his face in every single one of them penetrated my mind with such intensity, it made my knees weak. The headache that accompanied it was rather brutal as I clenched both fists instinctively in an attempt to cope with the pain. The second wave hits and this time it’s much worse. I reach for whoever is behind me to avoid falling on them. A scream wants to escape my throat but I bite my lip and curse the heavens for putting me through this. That, apparently, does the trick. The sensation is suddenly gone, and I’m left shaking with the sound of my shallow breathing ringing loudly in my ears. My mind tries to comprehend what just happened, but I force that out for now.

“Please, excuse me for my actions,” I say to the man as I look up at him and pull away. My eyes were unapologetic, but I didn’t care. “That was uncalled for.”

I’m casually standing in line like everyone else in this forsaken place. My weight shifts to one leg as I proceed to run a hand around my neck and over my shoulder to distract me from the agony of pure and complete boredom. I slowly fade back into a state of obliviousness and an unknown amount of time passes before I’m brought back to reality by a sudden tug at my wing. My defenses jolt awake as I turn to confront the stranger who had dared touch me. A short, slimy creature was struggling to his feet before standing frozen in place. My stare must have burnt a hole through his tiny brain as he started to back away slowly.

“You disgusting sap!” My voice was louder than I’d intended, but I didn’t pay any mind to it nor did I care to deescalate the situation. I grow more aggravated as I spot some gooey substance dripping from the tip of my wing. My muscles flex while I try to practice as much restraint as possible in order to not kill this thing.

“You have exactly 3 seconds to get out of my sight or I will kill you right now in this very spot!”

Visibly shaking now, he hurries off from his place in line to find shelter amongst the many lovely individuals here today. Lovely being sarcastic in nature, of course. Some of these “lovelies” remain staring at me, but I ignore them as I would a stain on the ground. All I wanted to do now was take care of business and get cleaned up; any attempts at my life could be handled at a later time.

[Excuse any mistakes; I’ve only my phone at my disposal.]

Well, I got a good job, got my own place, started graduate school, got engaged, and we have a hedgehog named Spartacus. Life’s moving along.

Spartacus is probably the best thing to name a hedgehog. Either that or Sonic.

Sonic isn’t original, though. I’m part of a hedgie group and half of them are named Sonic. Here’s my Spartacus though:

I hear my name being mentioned. I look over to where the group is standing and Ronan appears to be making introductions. That’s not surprising though as he seems to be the type of person who will go the extra mile in any situation. After a brief internal debate on whether I should join them or not, I decide to finally get up and make my way over to them. As I’m walking, I notice some blonde-haired girl who clearly looked distressed. Her face reminds me of someone, and that’s when it clicks in my head.

“Ronan!” I grab him by the shoulder to turn him around and face me without caring too much about whom I’d just interrupted. “I need to go find the rest of the girls from the squad. I don’t know what you have planned but I haven’t seen Chelsea at all today and I’m worried. She’s my co-captain, so I kind of owe it to her to at least make an attempt to locate her.”

The gruesome sight before me was something I’d only seen in movies before, not face to face. Given the bad lunch I had that only served to make me nauseated for hours on end, it is only a matter of moments before I have to run to the nearest trash bin to puke my guts out. Starting with Ronan, I push everyone aside who happens to be in my way as I race against time, one race that I was sure I was going to lose.

“Move!” I yell to some kids walking by. Instead of doing what I ordered, they look at me with somewhat of a shocked expression and as a result, I elbow the older-looking one to clear my path. Why are people so stupid sometimes? Doesn’t matter, the brief frustration is relieved as I make it to the lined bin just in time.

After I end up with an empty stomach, I put a hand on the wall to lean against it and use my free hand to wipe the sweat off my face. I was breathing heavily, but as time passed, I was able to calm myself. In one smooth motion, I turn with my back against the wall and slide down until I’m seating and able to put my head on my knees to have a moment to myself. It seemed like this day was only getting worse for me.

“Wait, but what about…?” I have no time to finish the question since I’m rushing after Ronan right as he takes off. I don’t know exactly why I was following him, but I’d rather not face this mess alone. “So,” I add as I catch up with him, “are you part of the science club or something? I don’t mean to stereotype, but you don’t look like the type who plays sports. I bet you’re pretty good at chess too. I tried learning some years ago but it just didn’t stick, so I’ve settled for checkers.”

For some reason, I look down to check my watch and realize it was getting late. Hopefully we’ll be able to make it back home before nightfall, although the fog hasn’t lifted so I doubt that we’ll be allowed to go unless we escape through a window or something. “Speaking of which, who exactly are we going after, and why? Don’t we have enough on our plate right now to worry about?”

“My family…right.”

The dreaded feeling came back. It was the inability to even leave a voice message on her phone that had me worried the most. I could only think of the worst case scenario right now, and that was an image of everybody lying dead on the floor, to include or dog, Maxine. Hell, I even felt bad for Winston the butler. He was a nice old man, after all; always on top of his game to deliver service with a smile. He was also easier to talk to than any of my parents because his approach to a problem was to help rather than to judge.

“Yes, I think they’ll be alright.” I fake a smile, not really meaning my words. Ronan was worried enough for the both of us, and I didn’t want to make the situation any worse. “Just be optimistic. I know it’s hard at the moment, but it helps to look on the bright side.”

As we walk into the auditorium, we stumble upon some chaos going on up in the front.

“Well..I don’t think this meeting is going as planned, wouldn’t you say?”

“I’m Angeline,” I reply as I inspect my knees for damage. Aside from a few scratches against the reddened patch of skin, I was fine. I look up at the boy and remember he was the one who had pulled me away from the crowd just not too long ago. Taking a closer look at him this time around, I realize he wasn’t that bad looking after all.

“So, have you heard anything new as to what’s going on?” I ask, motioning for him to follow me to the auditorium. I’m glad I had someone to talk to for now.

Well that took them long enough.

I turn right on my heel and head towards the auditorium, wondering if the teachers or any of the administration had an answer for us. I was probably being too hopeful though, they were more than likely seeking to keep count of the student body and keep us all in one room. If you ask me, that just seems so much worse. We’d be like sitting ducks in there.

As I cross the hall, I notice the principal walking followed by a couple of kids. One of them looked particularly familiar to me, but I couldn’t quite remember where I’d seen him outside of school. Oh well, the schmuck probably lives around the area, no need to concern myself with him at the moment.

[Sorry, just started working and I’ve barely had time to do anything.]

Angeline

“Hey!”

The boy just looks at me with a dumb face and quickly utters an apology, not even bothering to help me with the books that laid strewn on the floor. What was his problem? Without saying another word, he takes off in the same direction he was originally heading. I sigh in response, bending down to pick up my books when my phone just so happens to fall out of my pocket. But of course! Why didn’t I think of that before?

I waste no time and frantically dial my mother’s number, hoping for a quick response. Instead of hearing the usual ring though, I get nothing but silence. “Oh come on!” I look at my phone just to make sure I had dialed properly, and hang up before trying again.

Nothing.

Frustrated by this point, I hang up and head to the main lounge. If I was going to be here a while, I might as well make the most of it.

Hmm…it doesn’t look like we’re getting out of here any time soon. I should go find—ugh, no, she’s out today with the flu. Why does my most reliable friend have to be out today? I can’t really count on anyone else here because they all basically have a maturity level of 0. And the teachers, they just try to boss you around as if you were some stupid 5-year-old.

“Hey, watch it!” I suddenly yell at some kid who nearly knocks me over as he runs past me. Luckily, I have great balance and I’m able to recover before face-planting the floor. Even though I wanted to pursue the stranger to confront him, he vanishes into a pool of students heading into one of the stairways. Good riddance; he wasn’t worth the trouble anyway.

I continue walking along the hall, this time without the intrusive thoughts dancing in my mind like some unwelcomed guest at a house party. As I turn the corner, I don’t have time to react to someone also walking in my path and we end up colliding, that which results in me dropping my books and nearly falling this time.

It was all so surreal. The expressions of terror on the faces of my fellow students, their frightened voices filling the hall, drowning out my own thoughts. I wanted to turn back the clock, just go back five minutes in time where I was eagerly waiting for the bell to go off as I fantasized about my chemistry teacher sitting behind his desk not too far from me. He was just as anxious to leave, I could tell by the way he kept looking at his watch. God he was hot; I would give anything to be back there…

Before my mind has the chance to wander any further, I feel a tug on my shoulder. Their grip is not hard, just firm enough for me to get the hint. I follow the kid away from the big crowd until we have some breathing room. He looked young, probably my age give or take a year. His question was one I had to think about for a few moments.

“I’m not really sure,” I shout back, looking around to see whether anyone had any idea of what exactly was going on, but they all looked just as confused as the rest of us. “Shouldn’t the school make some form of announcement or something? I mean, this is not really normal.”

Name: Angeline Pearson

Age: 16

Sex: Female

Appearance: Not too tall, stands about 5’3. Her body size is proportional to her height given the fact that she’s an athlete and is in good shape. Her dark-brown hair is cut short—just above her shoulders, and her big, pale blue eyes add a childish look to her face.

Personality: Angeline is mature for her age, she doesn’t play games but she will at times make some stupid decisions. She’s not exactly the class bully, but she’s not one who will allow someone to walk all over her without repercussions. She tries to help out as much as she can at animal shelters, and that keeps her in check with reality.

About: As the newly-appointed head of the cheerleading squad (she used to be the co-captain until the captain suffered some injuries), Angie has added more responsibilities to her plate and has been feeling more stressed out than ever before. Her grades haven’t faltered, strangely enough, but she does lash out at people more often than not and lately, her patience has gotten the best of her. Angeline also went through a rough break-up with her boyfriend of a year and a half.
