Weeping Angel

Plot

Key Three: Plot:

"Why did you come back here?" the guide hissed once the crowd left. Allen tilted his head at them.

"What?" he asked.

"Didn't I tell you to go away?" the guide barked, "Why the hell would you come back?!"

"I came back for you," Allen said simply. The other angel looked at him in an odd way.

"What?" they asked.

"I did some thinking," Allen told her, "I just can't leave you here. I am taking you with me." The guide really looked puzzled now.

"Are you crazy?!" they yelled, "No angel has ever escaped this God forsaken hell hole and lived, much less two together!"

"I have to try," the other angel insisted.

"You won't make it," the guide told him, "I can't come with you either."

"Why not?" Allen asked. The guide sank down to the rocky black ground.

"Too late for me," the angel lamented, "I have sinned. I can't go back now." Allen stuck out his hand to them. The guide looked at him with big eyes.

"You still have time to redeem yourself," he told her, "Come with me now and I will help you." The angel stared at him with big silent eyes.

"I don't understand you," they whispered.

"What do you mean?" Allen asked. The guide shook their head.

"Why are you doing this?" they asked, "Don't you know you can't escape from here?"

"Yeah, I've heard that one before," he admitted. The other angel twisted their face into confusion at him.

"Then… Why?" they asked, "Why do you even bother?"

"I have to try," Allen said, "I can't stay in this place anymore!" Allen gave the other angel a determined look on his face. He offered his hand out to the other angel again. "I will escape from here and you're coming with me!" His guide shook their head confused.

"But… why me?" they asked. Allen tried to find the exact answer to that one himself. He ended up giving up half way.

"Honestly," the angel admitted at last, "I don't really know. However, it just doesn't feel right to just leave you here after you saved me from those other angels."

"So?" the guide asked.

"So, are you coming with me or not?" Allen offered. The other angel narrowed their eyes at him.

"Something tells me that you won't take no for an answer on this, right?" they asked.

"Right," Allen's own still full-toothed smile told them. The guide dropped their shoulders and sighed.

"Fine," they said, "I'll come with you." Allen's face fully lit up in a glow for the first time since he came to this city.

"See? That wasn't so hard was it?" he asked. The guide rolled their eyes and frowned.

"It won't work," the angel muttered under their breath. Allen pretended not to hear them.

"By the way," he said, "I didn't quite catch your name. Mine is Allen Walker." The other angel gave him a little smile.

"Ophelia," she said. Allen gave her a long blank stare.

"Ophelia?" he repeated, "Wait… Then you're a…" The other angel nodded at him.

"Yes," she replied, "I am a woman." Ophelia gave him a surprisingly cute smile after she told him that.
