The Black Angels
(In love with a demi god)
By: Faith Lucky.
My eyes were already bulging out with curiosity. There was only one way to get out of here and that was through the door where he stood.
I’m not so sure he would let me leave.
“Okay; I…don’t want any trouble. I was just running on my own when one of your brothers or whatever, ran over me with his car and I passed out. Then…I opened my eyes and found myself in a room over here. He gave me something to eat and when I was done, I decided to go home since it was getting pretty late. And…on my way out, I ended up in this room”. I explained, hoping it was convincing enough.
“You didn’t need to explain. I know the truth”, he said, looking directly into my eyes.
“I’ve searched for you for years.” He added creepily, making me nervous.
“Searched for me? Wh…Why?” I asked, curiously.
Immediately, he turned around and left the room, closing the door.
I ran to the door immediately and tried opening it, but couldn’t. It was locked.
But how? I didn’t see him fix any key or something.
“Open the door!”,I shrieked and hit my hands on it.
“Let me out of here!!”
I turned around and looked at the coffin, my heart racing so fast.
What have I gotten into? Why did I have to come into the room?
Who are these boys?
I tried opening the door again, but to no avail. What do I do?
Oh, damn it!
I heard footsteps after a while and figured they were directed towards the room. I mean, this was the only room on the passage.
I moved away from the door and just like I had suspected, it opened and three boys came in – including the one who had just left.
Oh! And the one who started all these – who knocked me down.
The third one was unfamiliar but crazily handsome.
But they looked…dangerous – to me.
“Please, just let me go. I don’t want any trouble” I blenched.
“Is she the one?” The unfamiliar one asked.
“How’re you so sure?” The one who had knocked me down asked, having a cold look.
“She opened the door herself and you know that’s impossible” the second guy replied.
“I didn’t open anything!” I snapped.
“It…it just opened on its own when I got close to it”.
“And thats the point! What other proof do we need?” The second guy beamed.
“Yes! Let’s give it a try” the unfamiliar one said.
Oh, goodness! What are these guys talking about?
“You know what will happen if she turns out to be the wrong person” the guy who knocked me down chipped in.
“Yeah, but I’m willing to risk anything to save my brother’s life” the second one replied and turned to look at me.
“Hey, young lady” he called.
“I want you to kiss the guy in that coffin”.
Okay; Now, I get. They’re all crazy.
I scoffed and gawped at him.
“Sorry, what did you just say?” I asked, trying not to laugh.
“I don’t repeat myself.” He replied strictly.
“We want you to kiss the guy in the coffin” the unfamiliar one said instead.
I looked at the coffin, then back at them.
“Wait a minute; You…want me to kiss a dead man?” I asked.
“He isn’t dead!” The second one replied, a little raucously.
“He’s into a deep sleep and only the kiss of one lady can wake him up. And we believe you’re that lady”.
“What the hell? What are you talking about? I…I don’t know any of you. What makes you think my…”
Immediately, he stretched his hand towards me and I felt excruciating pains.
“Arghhhh” I screamed as I held my head.
“I hate it when I’m delayed” he grinned between his teeth.
“Gera! Will you stop it!” The guy who had knocked me down said and held his hand and the pains stopped at once.
Oh, my God!
I winced in fright and tottered back.
What did he do to me?
“All you have to do is kiss him and I’ll let you out of here” he said impatiently.
My breathing had become tensed.
The unfamiliar guy came up to the coffin and opened it.
“Just do it” he muttered.
I looked at the charming guy in the coffin and back at them.
“You really want me to consciously kiss someone in a coffin?”,I asked, paranoid.
“Just do it and you’ll be fine. You’ll be out of here” the guy beside the coffin said.
“I give you five seconds to do it, else…” The second one said and started lifting his hand.
Oh, God! No.
He’s going to do that thing to me again.
“1…2” he began counting.
Oh, Olivia! What have I gotten myself into???
The guy who knocked me down was quiet and couldn’t even say a word.
I bent towards the coffin immediately, placing my hands on its edges.
I Can’t believe I’m doing this – kissing someone who looks dead.
And I kissed him!
I placed my lips on his and kissed him.
I did it!
I kissed a dead man!
I gasped in fright and moved away from the coffin immediately.
So, what next?
I looked back at the boys, but they were all fixated on the coffin.
“Mishael!”, the second guy called and I looked Back at the coffin to see the dazzling eyes open.
I moved far away immediately, going towards the door.
“Mishael!” The guy who had opened the coffin also beamed.
They ran to him immediately.
I got to the door, fear written all over me.
I touched my lips and couldn’t believe I just resurrected a guy in a coffin.
I brought him back to life!
The guy who had known me down just stood like a ghost by the door, not making a move, not even sparing me a stare.
Without wasting any more time, I ran out of the house immediately.
I never believe I could be so stupid in my entire life.
Everything I’ve been trying to avoid for years, I brought it with my own hands.
How could I be so stupid to had brought the lady that could resurrect Mishael into the house?
I stood by the door like a bloated goat and watched Gera and Phin help him sit up.
“Hey, brother. Look at me. Its me. Do you remember?” Gera asked, desperately.
I couldn’t fathom the happiness he must be feeling.
“Gera?” Mishael Called, feebly and he chuckled.
“Yes, brother. Its me. Its Gera. You’re safe now. You’re back”. He said ecstatically.
He turned and looked at Phin beside him.
‘Phin?” He called and Phin also smiled.
“Yeah man, its me. I’m here.”.
I still didn’t make a move. All I felt was anger.
He looked at his palms.
“What happened?” He asked.
His voice was coming out flaccid and calm.
“You were hit during the attack and went into a deep sleep. But, we found a way to bring you Back” Gera enthused.
He tried standing up and they helped him down from the coffin.
Then, he looked at me.
“Javan” he called, calmly.
“Hey, good to have you back” I forced a faux smile, not wanting to look like the villain.
“So, we’re on earth?” He turned to Gera and asked.
“Yes. We’ll be safe here – for now” Phin replied instead.
He crossed his hands behind his Back and looked up at ceiling, taking in a long deep breath.
“Ahh” he exhaled softly, his eyes closed.
“I’ve missed this”.
Gera’s face was beaming the whole time.
“I’m starving” he suddenly said.
“Yeah, come on, brother. I’ll order some food for you” Gera replied and tried holding him.
“I don’t need food” he cut him off, levelly.
“I need someone to f**k”
