An Angel Gets Her Wings!
Project Fallen Angel
Midnight, Orion's Ember alarm sounded bringing the others to find Rena standing at the foot of Megan's bed. Ember floated three feet above her bed with shimmering translucent blue and reddish gold flames moving softly around her.
‟What's going on?" May asked.
Brianna moved around the bed watching Megan closely. ‟This is different."
‟She's thinking." Rena answered.
‟She's having a dream." Chloe said.
‟Megan is dreaming but Ember is thinking." Rena explained.
Suddenly Ember vanished. ‟Orion!" Rena exclaimed. ‟Track that girl!" Rena ran for the control room with the others following. Fawn and Lilly seeing the others in the hallway followed.
‟She's transported…" Rena looked at the map on her floating viewer. Orion appeared in the control room observing.
‟She's over White River in Northwest Arkansas." Rena said.
The forward viewer zoomed in showing Ember floating a foot or so above the cold crystal clear water, gazing into the stream.
‟She's not cloaked!" Brianna exclaimed.
‟It's midnight." Chloe said.
‟Megan is Ember?" Fawn asked.
‟Oh crap!" Brianna gasped pointing at the viewer. A teenage boy walked along the gravel path, seeing Ember floating above the river he stopped at the edge of the water.
‟Beam her out of there!" May exclaimed.
‟Can't." Orion shook his head. ‟She's Ember."
‟Suits!" Brianna exclaimed. ‟Send me down there."
Suddenly the image on the large viewer turned lining up behind the boy on the gravel. Brianna ran into the image instantly her suit appeared on her as she emerged behind the lad.
The stunned expression on Rena and May's faces spoke volumes. ‟It's, ah, the, well Brianna has a direct link to Orion now." Chloe looked at the Orion android. ‟Suit!" She ran into the viewer emerging with her suit.
The boy glanced to his side seeing Brianna. ‟She must be an angel?"
Brianna nodded. ‟Sometimes."
Payah and Baby Starburst's energy flowed around Ember like a beautiful gown gently blowing in the wind.
‟Ember?" Brianna asked.
Rena and May appeared behind them also moving near the water. The boy looked around to see. ‟Killer insomniac." He said. ‟You?"
‟Messenger from God." Chloe answered.
‟Ember, what are you doing?" Brianna asked again.
Slowly Ember moved into an upright position, as she did the energy flowing around her changed moving upward and outward from behind her shoulders forming wings. A breeze began flowing around her making ripples on the water.
‟She is an angel." The lad spoke softly.
‟She's three angels in one." Brianna said.
Ember floated over the water to the group. ‟It's on the other side."
‟What's on the other side?" Rena asked.
‟The thing which I seek."
‟The other side of what?" Brianna asked.
‟There's nothing but fish on the other side of the water." Chloe said.
‟No, I must find it." Ember shot into the sky and vanished.
‟She can fly!" Brianna exclaimed.
‟Like a rocket!" Chloe added.
‟I knew she could if she wanted to." Rena looked at her watch. ‟It's going to be a long night." She walked back into the transport and disappeared.
The boy realized they were all dressed alike. ‟You know the angel?"
Brianna nodded. ‟She drives us crazy sometimes." Brianna started toward the transport.
Chloe reached out and grabbed the boy's hand, shaking it. ‟Hi, glad to meet ya. Gotta run now. Ta!" Chloe ran into the transport and disappeared.
The boy stood on the beach in the early morning. His younger sister joined him. ‟Can't sleep Hu?" She asked.
The boy looked around then back at the water. ‟I thought I was awake but now I'm not sure."
‟I saw a shooting star from the porch." She pointed at the cabin on the edge of the river. ‟I made a wish."
‟What did you wish for?"
‟For mom to get well." She answered. ‟I asked God for an angel."
The lad looked at his sister.
