Desires 111

Some promises you need to keep, if not for yourself, then for another. The right other…

She chuckled a little bit and answered, “Trust me on something Ray… St. Peter probably wouldn’t want to know that I was here helping you… I’m not that much of an angel and he knows it too…” She moved her hands over his body getting the occasional gasp from him and shook her head as she said, “You dummy… You are not going to pass from me that easily Ray… I might not have much in the way of controlling the universe, but I will not allow you to go because of something like this…”

There was a soft glow in her hair for a moment and then as he watched a pair of sleek red horns peeked out from her hair glistening in the light of the tent. She bit her lip and then said, “There is not healing without pain…. And there is nothing i can do to stop that from happening…. And I’m sorry Ray…. I truly am….”

She put her hand on his ribs and there was a sharp crack sound as she did. A spike of pain flooded into his body and then for a moment his breathing cleared slightly as the ache in him lessened slightly…

But he could see the look of pain in her eyes and the gasp of breath she took. A low curse passed from her lips directed at the universe for making this happen and then she sat back away from him breathing heavily. She looked into his eyes and said, “Believe it or not Ray… You have another destiny to fulfill… And that does not include you dying by the side of the road in the middle of nowhere…”

She crawled around in the tent, and then made him lay against her quietly. She brushed her fingers through his hair and said, “I’m sorry that the angels didn’t come to you in your time of need Ray… I truly am… You are a good man… But they could not hear your cries in the night… But I could and so here I am…”

With the sound of the gas lamp in the tent burning, she continued to speak, “My name is Tera… What I am isn’t all that important but you can make your own guess I suppose… I’m not the answer to your needs Ray… But I’m here now… And so… We’ll see what happens won’t we?”

She smiled as she continued, “My bike? That’s a interesting story…. But you only get to hear the whole thing if you make it to sunrise Ray… You will have to fight for the words I speak… If you give up on me… You’ll never know the whole thing….”

She took his right hand in hers and asked, “Do we have a deal?”

It isn’t that bad a deal… Is it?

    It is an excellent deal. But, beyond that, I must, with respect and hesitation, point out that Queen Tera (the one within this story, at least) is wrong. “Angel” means “messenger,” particularly referring to a bringer of good news, which can be good news in deeds as well as, or instead of, words. It seems that she is indeed an angel in this case, and very much who Ray needs at this time. I suspect, if St. Peter did not approve–he always tended to be slow on the uptake–his God most certainly would. Whether she knows it or not, she is probably thare at God’s behest.

    At the time my heart, I didn’t quite see the better in me as I should have…
