Cupid's Bow

Prologue

*~(*)~*

I stand at the top, looking down at the world far, far below me.

"You're up," the Watcher next to me intones; bored, impatient.

As if I didn't already know.

I stare queasily at the long drop down, my stomach full of knots. I take an unconscious step back, only to be pushed forward by the queue behind me.

"Come on!" says a voice from behind, but I don't dare look away from the fall. "Some of us are aiming to get to the next world today!"

I ignore them, instead looking at the Watcher out of the corner of my eye. "I don't like heights," I whisper, trying not to tremble and failing. I guess it was sort of ironic considering we lived so high up in the clouds... but I'd never had to face the bottom before.

Their reply is an eye roll. "Try to land on your feet," they say, voiced bored again, like it's been said a hundred times over today – which it probably has. "It'll be less painful."

Then, with any further ado, I'm pushed over the edge, and into Oblivion.

A/N:

Yay! New story!

This is going to be a 12 or 13 part little ditty, and I know this because I only have the last two chapters to write up. (I actually planned). I originally wanted to post this as a one-shot, but it was getting too long. I also originally wanted to post this as a lead up to Valentine's day (hence the name) sort of thing, but alas, I underestimated how much I was going to write (and how long it was going to take me, welp).

Not to worry if you're reading my other stories, as this won't interfere with them. Like I said, I've written this one in advance, so it's all good.

A note on updates: this story will update once or twice every day, or every other day, depending on how generous I'm feeling ;), so no waiting!

That's all, thanks for reading! I hope you'll join me on this trip into Oblivion. :) xo
