*A/N: thank you for your long wait, and for your reviews! Here is the long awaited next chapter of Angels. But first let it be known I have made a new rule. I will only post a new chapter for any one story if there are at least 5 reviews for that chapter, so if you wanna read more, review! Thank you and enjoy*
"WHAT! That can't be. Angel… wouldn't she know what I am and kill me then?"
Jasper shook his head. "Not if she was born this way."
I looked at him in disbelief. "Explain."
He sighed at my ignorance. "There's a difference between a Born Angel and a Soul Bound Angel. Your girls more than likely completely unaware that she's half angel. As in a Soul Bound Angel and a human are her parents. She has the power but not of a full Angel, which is why it burns when she touches you after you've done something evil." He sighed shaking his head, "too bad."
"Ed, you have to kill her."
"What! NO! I can't!"
"Want me to?"
I pinched the bridge of my nose between my fingers, closing my eyes. I looked back up at jasper, "there has to be another way?"
He was silent for a moment before he pulled a book out of his coat pocket and slid it over to me. It was a thick leather bound book with metal bindings. Hells book of spells and souls appeared on the cover in red ink.
"Get her to join us of her own free will. Our lord will take her power from her and she'll be just like you. Immortal, able to read minds and bend thoughts, the whole nine yards. That's the only other way I know of."
I stared down at the book in front of me. I knew to normal people it was invisible but I put it in my pocket just incase. I didn't know if she would be able to see it, if she was strong enough, but I wasn't going to risk it. I looked over at jasper and pointed to his wedding band.
"Is that what you got Ali to do for you? Because she was human?"
Jasper nodded. "And to my surprise she did too." He laughed, "Her positive spin was the immortality bit."
"How did she handle seeing his face? Did she scream?"
I wouldn't be able to take that.
Jasper nodded, "only for a second, then she bit her lip to hold it in, brave soul that she is. I was hard to watch. She did good though, during the transition she swore and screamed sometimes when it got to be too much but I think she did good, for a girl that's a lot to go through."
I nodded thinking of how it was for me. The transition was painful though none of us knew exactly how it worked or what was done; you just woke up the next morning feeling lighter and with powers. It was a wonder to them all.
Jasper flipped through the menu and I read the specials on the wall. A girl came over and placed a cup of coffee in front of me. There was a blue sticky note attached to the side. 'On me. Love Bella'
"Damnit, you lucky prick." Jasper muttered, cursing me.
"Hey, Jasper long time no see, what can I get you? The usual?" the waitress asked.
"Sure, thanks Jess."
Jessica turned and left.
"Hurry up once you get your food, I Wanna get out of here soon. Man, now all this is giving me a headache."
"Ed, you whine like a bitch sometime."
I growled at him but he just chuckled.
"Fine, I'll meet up with you later. I have something I need to do."
I drank my coffee in one gulp and put a few bills on the table before leaving the café.
I walked down the alley a few buildings down and willed myself home. I walked over to the attic stair drop and pulled the string, letting the stairs unfold. Once I was upstairs I went right to the hidden corner I found a while back when we'd moved our summer stuff up here. Lifting and turning one of the roof boards that was loose to the side I reached in and pulled out the small black box I'd hidden there a week ago. Lifting the lid I stared down at the diamond ring nestled in the satin.
But, this stupid Angel shit changed everything! Almost everything.
I still loved her.
But would she make that sacrifice for me? For us?
"only one way to find out."
The front door slammed and I heard Bella humming. "sweetie you home?"
