Silvette. That is Raymond's mother's maiden last name. I only heard it once from Raymond. This can't be. Unless...
"What's wrong my dear? Tell me everything." Terry huddled against me.
"Well there has to be something going on. You aren't always like this. Is it because he looks too much like him?"
"I don't know." Tears trickled down my face. "Please don't remind me of the past. The only one I can trust now is you."
"It's okay. Just tell me sometime later then. You should rest."
"Darling!" A pair of hands covered up my eyes.
"Raymond, is that you?" I took off his hands and turned around.
"Aw. This isn't fun." He looked so cute with the sulking puppy face. I laughed and he tickled me.
"I got you something." He stopped and handed me a box.
"What is it?" I looked at him and snatched the box away from him.
"It's a bond for me to find you when we descend to the human world."
I opened the box...
My hands were covered in blood. My mind blanked out. Who was it that was in front of me? A real person, or a duplication?
Don't bother. There was never anything between us. You should have known this from the start. I'll leave you a little gift to give you comfort. Sooner or later, you'll come back to me. You can never escape, just like everyone else. You are all destined to die!
I woke up with a startle. That dream. Grr... how much want to forget about it. I looked next to me and Terry was leaned against me. I smiled and leaned him against the wall.
I got up and walked a bit. The wind was picking up from the distance. I let the wind blow my hair around. At least for now, I'm free. I don't have to do the things I don't want, or care about what others think. I feel so different here than in heaven. I feel I can do anything here. I feel a wonder. Up there, I felt worse than a trapped bird.
I stared up at the sky, though the reddish black veil didn't seem very welcoming. I heard a clash around the corner. I walked over and saw Aaron panting with two swords in his hand. One was black, the other was white. The dual swords were just like me. I'm an angel with black wings.
Aaron looked in my direction. He tried to put on a smile. "You're up already?"
I put on the same forced smile. "Yeah. What are you doing here so early?"
For now, I'll keep quiet. I won't tell anyone. Not even Terry. Not yet...
