My name is Leona; I am a Zodiac angel the symbol of Leo just like my late father. My mum died to save me and my dad died to be with my mum, now it's just me and I've broken the biggest rule in the book, never befriend a fallen angel. Except its worse than that, I'm in love with one.
When Leona's parents, Evelyn and Leo died for their love and died to save her Leona was left to be raised by the Zodiac angels but when she meets Isos the son of the leader of the fallen angels, Leona awakens a new
“Wake up Leona!” Pisces shouted
“I’m getting up already!” I replied
I hated mornings, everyone here was always so cheery and awake and they “Embraced the dawn” what a load of mumbo jumbo. I preferred the dark and the night any day. I heaved myself up out of bed and shook my wings loose and stretched them out to their full wingspan. I dragged my feet over to the large ornate golden mirror on my wall; I looked dreadful in the mornings. My usual long black wavy hair was stuck up everywhere and I looked like some creature had inhabited my head in the night. My light pink eyes were blurry and hazy and hadn’t yet adjusted to the light. My wings were in the same state as my hair, my white feathers with black tips were sticking up everywhere and needed grooming urgently.
After I had completed my laborious grooming process, I exited my bedroom and went into the kitchen and sat down at the table next to Aquarius.
“Morning Leona” Aquarius said
“Morning Aqua” I said with a smirk, he hates it when I call him Aqua.
“You know I don’t like that Leo honey,” Aquarius said viciously
“Enough you two” Pisces interrupted.
She was at the large silver and blue stove making cloud pancakes and they smelled, so, so well… disgusting. Cloud pancakes consist of pieces of fluffy, woolly, disgusting cloud being mixed with sugar and cooked in a pan. Whoever invented cloud pancakes deserves to be shimmered.
“I’m not eating them” I said disgusted
“Yes you are, there healthy and nutritious and will make your wings look a little less scraggy,” Pisces instructed
“I’m going out,” I said standing up
I started walking out drowning the shouts of my adoptive parents. I hated it here its always so bright and chirpy and I’m just not! I went to the large ornate gates that lead into The Realm of Worlds and jumped off the end of the cloud pier. I hurtled down towards the earth like a bullet fired from a gun. I loved flying; it made me feel free and not captivated by any rules and regulations. I began spiralling and somersaulting towards the ground; I loved the adrenalin and exertion. I closed my eyes and enjoyed the rush. I suddenly opened my eyes and saw the Earth coming up towards me much too fast. I screamed and panicked trying to quickly save myself and arc upwards but I was already falling much, much too fast. I curled my arms over my head and braced myself for the impact with the Earth. I shut my eyes tightly, so tight they hurt but suddenly I felt myself slowing down. I dared to open my eyes a little and I saw that was indeed slowing down! I looked up at myself and there I saw an angel, gripping me tightly slowing my fall, except he wasn’t an angel at all. He was a fallen angel and not just any fallen angel, he was the son of the late Grumlin, and his name is Seth.
“Get off me you fallen scum!” I screamed at him and batted my wings ferociously.
“That’s the thanks I get for saving your life?” he said taken-aback “Unless of course you wanted to become a shimmer?”
“No I don’t but I don’t want your filthy hands on me either!” I shouted at him
“Fine” he said with a smirk and he dropped me and I fell on the ground with a loud thud.
“Ouch” I said over dramatically
I had landed in the middle of a vast beach, luckily it was pitch black out and there wasn’t any one on the beach, I don’t think the living would really accept two angels on the beach.
“What? You said you didn’t want my filthy hands on you,” he said laughing
“Why don’t you just kill me already?” I said
“Now why do you think I would want to do that?” Seth asked confused
“You’re a fallen angel, why else would you save a Zodiac angel unless you meant to kill them yourself?” I asked
“I’m not my father!” he growled and lowered his face down so it was centimetres away from mine.
“Now there’s the fallen angel personality we all know and love,” I said with a smirk
“Shut up you stupid girl!” he screamed and pulled me up by my hair
“Get off me!” I screamed and bit his arm and naturally he let go.
“All you Zodiac angels think your amazing and your all that! Well your not, your all stuck up little girls who can’t even thank someone when they save their afterlife!” he screamed his eyes blazing blood red.
I took this time to look at him and really look, he had scraggy blonde hair that flopped over his forehead making his eyes look like glowing red shadows. He had very pale skin almost white with lips to match; he wore a black t-shirt with what looked like a huge claw rip in the front, revealing his perfect six-pack. He had long black trousers on which were also ripped as though he had been in a fight with some animal and finally he had bare feet. He was quite beautiful in his own evil kind of way.
“What are you staring at!” he screamed
“You” I whispered
“Just go away, I don’t know why I bothered saving you, you ungrateful little…” I cut him off at the point as I shot up into the sky.
He began to follow me; I could hear him still mumbling to himself about filthy Zodiac angels. I suddenly stopped and hovered mid-flight and turned to talk to him.
“Look why are you following me?” I asked
“I’m not, I just want to fly here it’s a good spot” he mumbled
“No, you’re following me” I said with a smirk
“Ok maybe I am, so what?” he shrugged
I laughed and went down to his level and placed my face centimetres from his just like he did to me. I don’t know what came over me, I forgot who he was, I forgot what he was and I kissed him lightly on the lips and began my ascension back up.
