AN:I'm back! I'm so sorry for this delay and hopefully now that school is over, I will be able focus more on my stories! I already have 2 more chapters written after this one so, fingers crossed they will be out this week, as well! :)
Tess sat by the edge of the lake, trying to clear her mind of all that had just happened. When Monica and Andrew admitted their love for each other, she was shocked and a little angry at first, but as soon as she see seen the smiles on their face, she couldn't possibly have been happier.
"Father, I know that it is forbidden for angels to fall in love, and very highly unusual, but I saw the look in their eyes, and It could be nothing but love! Please, shine some light on this, because I just cannot figure out why it is wrong?" She then remembered Sam's words and then "I know where Sam was going. Please, let me help those two tomorrow and the days to follow, as I cannot stand to see my angel babies get hurt. Amen."
She waited silently there for a few moments, just waiting for an answer. When she finally got it, she was shocked, angry, and happy all at the same time. With God's answer in her mind, she started her walk back towards to house, contemplating whether or not she should tell the two angels the message she had just received.
When Tess entered the house, she was met with silence, so she slowly shut the door, trying not to make any noise, figuring the two angels were already sleeping. She had decided that her best bet was to tell Andrew at least part of what she knew, as she had been told not to tell him everything. She walked to their room and, seeing the door slightly ajar, she walked in. The sight before her broke her heart. Monica was lying on her side with her head resting under Andrew's chin, and the older angel could see the little angel's hand clutching Andrew's shirt, holding on as if her life depended on it. From the glow of the little light next to the bed, she could also see the trail of tear stains on Monica's face. Andrew, on the other hand, had both arms wrapped protectively around her shoulders, staring blankly out the bedroom windows. She knocked lightly on the door, causing Andrew to jump slightly, before a look of relief over took his handsome features.
"Couldn't sleep, huh?" She asked him
"On and off, really. She just woke up screaming, thinking I wasn't here. She just fell back to sleep. "He looked down at the angel sadly. " She thinks that they are going to separate us tomorrow. I keep trying to tell her that that's not going to happen, but…" He trailed off as he seen the concerned look cross Tess' face. "They wouldn't do that, would they, Tess? I mean we, all 3 of us, work so well together! The worst they're gonna do is have us spend a few days in the Netherworld, then we're back to work, right?"
"Can I talk to you in the living room for a few minutes, Andrew? I don't want her to wake up and hear what I have to tell you." She spoke, not looking him in the eyes because she knew that the look in them would completely destroy her already breaking heart.
"S-Sure" he stuttered. "Just give me a few minutes."
She nodded as she stood up and walked out the door.
"Monica?" He gently called her name.
"Mmm?" she mumbled
"I will be right back. Tess just wants to talk to me for a few minutes." Her eyes shot open as he said that and he was quick to calm her back down. "
"Sweetie. Everything is all right, she just has to discuss a few things with me, that's all." He had no idea how true that was, but he didn't want to worry her, so he completely ignored the memory of the look Tess had on her face. "Please go back to sleep." He took off his shirt and rolled it into a pillow, then handed it to her. She reluctantly took it, and then rolled to her other side, clutching the shirt tightly to her chest. He kissed her cheek before walking out, going to meet Tess in the living room. Every step he took towards it, the tighter his chest became. Somehow he knew that whatever Tess was about to tell him, was not going to be good, and that maybe Monica's fears were not as irrational as he had first thought.
Yep, i am a complete jerk ;)
