The Net: "Date With An Angel": The Next Day
The next thing Angela knew, she was waking up in her own bed and sunlight was streaming in through her window. How did I get here? She looked around her. Jacob was leaning on the door frame of her room and he was already dressed for the day. He walked over to her.
"I'm leaving now, OK?"
"Where are you going?"
"I've got classes, remember?" he leaned over and gave her a short kiss. "And don't forget, you've got to be at work in an hour."
"OH MY GOD!!!!!" Angela bolted out of bed. "One hour?!?!"
Jacob smiled as he left her room. When she was sure he was gone, she fell back on her bed. What happened last night? I can't remember anything! Suddenly, it all came back to her in a rush. We actually KISSED!!!!! Our first kiss! I can't believe it! I've always dreamed it would happen like that! I……I……we……him……and me……we……KISSED!!!! It ran through her mind again and again and again, just like a broken record.
A few hours later in between two of Jacob's computer classes he called CIC headquarters to see if Angela had actually gotten to work. Her boss, Walter, answered the phone.
"Hi, Wally, is Angela there?"
"No. I haven't seen her all day. I tried to call her, but she won't answer her phone. Do you know where she might be?"
Jacob smiled to himself. "Yeah, I bet I do. And if I'm right, I'm sure she'll be just fine."
"Why? What's going on?"
"I have a feeling she's just plain IN LOVE."
"I'll check on her during my lunch hour after my next class. Don't worry. I'm sure she's just fine. Do you need me for anything since she's not there?"
"No, no, I'm fine. Thanks for the call, Jacob," he made it sound like he was blaming Jacob for everything.
"Oh sure! No praw!" Jacob hung up and went to his next class.
Afterwards, he left for Angela's. He opened the front door and went inside. "Angel!" he called out. There was no answer. He went through the first floor. No one was there. He climbed the winding staircase where he found her still lying on her bed. Her eyes were wide open and she appeared to be staring at the ceiling. Jacob waved his hand over her eyes, but she didn't respond. He felt for a pulse wondering for a second……if maybe…….something had happened to her and…maybe she was…..His mind switched back to the night before for just a second, remembering that kiss……He found a very rapid pulse. Her heart was beating nearly a mile a minute! She began to breathe heavily. "Angel. Angel!" Still, there was no response. "What do I do now?" he asked himself out loud.
Suddenly, he remembered a fairy take he had heard when he was little. He didn't hesitate before leaning over to give her a quick kiss. It worked. Angela's eyes blinked and she turned her head to look at him. She took his hand and intertwined her fingers with his, as she looked up into his eyes.
"Jacob……" he voice was slightly weak.
There was something in her eyes, something drawing him to her, something that told him, he had his Angel. She was his, and he was hers. They would be together…..forever…………………………………..
