As I walked into my apartment, Gabriel chuckled and said, “Ah love is such a beautiful thing is it not?” Then he cleared his throat and sat up straighter on the sofa. “We have to talk, Mary.”
“Gabriel—” I started.
“Yes, we’re alone.” Thanks for reading my thoughts again, I wanted to say sarcastically. “Your roommate is out with her boyfriend.”
I nodded and leaned back against the door. I tried to relax but I was on edge. Gabriel had more to tell me about my powers and what was expected of me as the Princess of the Light. I closed my eyes and said a quick prayer: Lord, please help me to understand whatever it is that Gabriel is about to tell me.
I opened my eyes to see Gabriel smiling at me. “Okay, mental eavesdropper, I am ready.”
“Than has, in fact, employed the help of Lisbeth, just as I’d mentioned earlier. You are now being protected by four of my strongest angels. They are to keep you safe from harm and to alert you when danger is coming.”
I nodded and he continued.
“For far too long, demons like Than have influenced humans. The time has come for that to change and that is where you come in. You are God’s Chosen and you will rid the world of evil and restore goodness to Earth.”
Me? How was just one person to rid the world of evil?
I suddenly had the urge to pace. I leaned over and took off my heels.
Gabriel spoke softly, “Princess…”
I held up my hands in protest to him and said as respectfully as I could, “This is what I do to think. Please don’t try to read my thoughts, ok?”
Gabriel nodded and sat on the sofa watching me.
I put my hands down and started pacing again. Fear and doubt crept into my heart, and I stopped mid-step and closed my eyes. My father’s voice echoed in my head: Angel, you can move mountains. All you have to do is have a little faith and God will do the rest.
I put my head in my hands and cried. Gabriel quickly closed the distance between us. He wrapped his arms around me and didn’t say a word, auditory or otherwise. He just let me cry in my self-pity for a while, absorbed in my thoughts.
I sometimes sensed my father’s presence and could faintly smell his cologne. He always felt near, but I hadn’t been able to hear his voice in a long time. When I heard it a moment ago, it was wonderful, but heart-wrenching.
“Gabriel, do you think I can really defeat Than?” I tried to search his eyes for the truth.
He said simply, “Of course you can.”
I nodded and closed my eyes. Nothing could have stopped my dad, but I wasn’t sure I was as strong as he had been.
“Princess, God’s plan is revealed to all of us in the proper time.” He paused. “Have faith,” he echoed my father’s words. The reality of him doing so warmed my heart.
“You will save the life of André. Right now, the darkness has him in its clutches and André feels that he has nothing left. He feels despair and thinks there is nothing he can do to get back his life. The demons practically feed off of that negative energy to survive and have shrouded André’s entire existence—inside and out—in darkness.”
“I followed André to the cul-de-sac,” I said. “I saw André was hunched over and he didn’t appear to have any Light.” That poor man. He has lost all hope.
Gabriel nodded and a flash of light flew out of Gabriel’s hand. White smoke appeared in the center of the floor in front of me and I turned to watch it. The fog cleared and I gasped.
Fury flooded my body and I stood up and raised my hands level with Than’s chest. Die! I screamed inside.
Nothing happened. If I focused on using the Light, evil had no choice but to run and hide. Why didn’t he?
“Concentrate,” Gabriel instructed. “This is merely an exercise.”
With my hands raised once again, and I said firmly, “Light destroys the Darkness. Evil cannot stand against it.” Purple light flew out of my hands like lightning bolts and obliterated Than. Smiling to myself, I looked back at Gabriel.
“See, it is not about killing,” he said, obviously referring to the thought that accompanied my previous attempt. “That is the way of evil. It is about destroying evil with the Light. Your motive must always be about ridding the world of evil.” Gabriel paused as I sat down again.
“So, my heart must always be pure?” I turned to Gabriel.
“That is right, Princess. Your heart must always be pure. You don’t want evil to have an opportunity to take advantage and try to turn you against God.”
I tried to keep the puzzled look off of my face, but Gabriel could still read my thoughts. Did he realize how difficult that would be?
“I have feelings of love and borderline attraction towards you,” Gabriel blurted. “You do not realize that you give off such love of the Lord that it is easy for an angel like me to be attracted to you.”
Gabriel paused when I stepped back in shock, feeling my face heat up. “I swear I have a point,” he continued with a laugh. “Outside the restaurant when I was chatting with Than and Lisbeth, they saw me looking at you in an overly protective manner. They saw my weakness and tried to use it against me.”
I was a little unnerved by that.
I nodded and said, “Gabriel, I—”
A male voice interrupted me and said slyly, “I couldn’t have said it better myself.”
I whipped my head around to see Than leaning casually against the front door. The hairs on the back of my neck stood up; this was no apparition.
Gabriel’s wings flew out and he rose to his full height and Light flooded the room. Than covered his face and made a familiar low, guttural sound.
I cautiously made my way to the center of the living room. “What are you doing here, Than?” My question hung in the air.
Than growled at Gabriel, “You’re not playing by the rules.”
Gabriel lowered his wings and Than lowered his hands, as Gabriel let his Light dim.
I smiled coyly and said, “It’s not polite to ignore a woman’s question, Than.”
Than balked and said sarcastically, “I am sorry my dear, I was being lambasted with Gabriel here. What was the question again?”
Regardless of his attempt to cover it with sarcasm, I could still feel fear growing in Than. I crossed my arms over my chest and smiled back at him. “I said what are you doing here?”
Than smiled and said, “I’ve come here to warn you. If you try to interfere with the Walking Man, as you humans call him, you will wind up dead and so will that man of yours.”
“Is that supposed to scare me?”
Than shrugged then started to sputter and shake with anger. I glanced at Gabriel to see what was going on between them, but he was looking approvingly at me.
I blinked in disbelief as Than’s eyes widened. I stared into his eyes and heard him whisper, “What the…”
Out of the corner of my eye, misty light covered the distance between Than and I. My breath quickened and my pulse raced. Under my breath I said, “What’s going on?”
No one replied and as Than covered his eyes, my mouth dropped open. Than exploded upon contact with the misty light that was coming from me.
I turned to Gabriel and closed my mouth a few times. “Did I do that?”
