It was nighttime around the house, the moon was shining above the house, casting a ghostly setting, the trees shedding their thick green leaves. The windows glow with the yellow light bulbs of the lamps inside, shadows cast out against the windows as the teenagers move around in front of the window. Luckily, for them, the darkness cannot see the house, as it is protected by the good magic, which the last angel had cast around it.

Inside, Zander is with the young rainbow orb, who cannot comprehend why she must never tell her family where they are. "Listen, Leah. You cannot tell them, the darkness could - no, they would - be listening in and if they hear anything of where we are or even know what you are, then they may be able to either come here, or use your family hostage until you come to get them."

"But... What if... What if we could save them or something, or even, you know, take them here... Couldn't you, I don't know, check out for the darkness or something?"

Zander sighs, saying no and walks down into the kitchen to help Tia with the food. Within half an hour, they had all eaten their most of food (Max being the quickest due to how little he had eaten that day) and were sitting around the dining room table, talking about the situation.

"Can Sam come in here?" Denis asked as the spaghetti disappeared down to his stomach in a very... graceful motion.

"No, this house is protected. Only we can enter, that is, of course, unless any of us invite someone else in."

"So, I could get my family and friends to come here?" Leah pipes up a look of glee on her face.

Zander sighs - an annoying habit of his - again, shaking his head mournfully. "I wouldn't count on it, sure, in thought you could get them to come here. But, as I've said before, it could be just too dangerous, the darkness is growing and becoming more and more dangerous.

"You see, there have always been the classically good and bad spirits and beings. Humans being an of the exception, as they can have an equal mixture of both good and bad in them. Although everyone or thing obviously has some of the other side in, like you all have a bit of darkness in you say, when you argue.

"It's hard to explain really, but the old angels either fell from grace or were killed. I was... am the only good angel left. My cousin is a... um... dark angel, if that makes any sense to you. The orbs and I have been protected, that is until they claimed you. Not the darkness knows about you and will stop at nothing until they get your power."

"Bloody hell," one of the boys sighs.

"Can we fight them?" Tia asks, pushing her half-full plate of spaghetti away from her.

"That's not for me to decide, that's your decision." He unknowingly so stares into her eyes, ignoring the others. Until Holly coughs into her sleeve pulling him away, blushing slightly.

The End
