Weeping Angel

Team

Key Seven: Team:

Ophelia began her search for more team members. She already had the key players in mind. The angel walked up to door 207 and knocked on it. She peeked inside when it cracked open.

"Who's there?" a low voice whispered.

"Ophelia," the other angel whispered back. She stood back when the door opened wider. A taller, dark-skinned angel stared her down.

"What's up?" he asked. Ophelia glanced around for a long second before moving her hand to her chest.

"I need a little help with a project," she whispered. The man's face dropped into a frown.

"With what?" he asked.

"Vacation," the other angel replied. The man's face became rather grim as he shook his head.

"Oh hell no!" he snapped.

"But we have a strong lead!" Ophelia cried.

"It won't work!" the man yelled before trying to slam the door in her face.

The angel walked up to door 108 and knocked on it. She peeked inside when it cracked open.

"Who's there?" another man's voice whispered.

"Ophelia," the other angel whispered back. She stood back when the door opened wider. A skinny, pale angel stared her down.

"Ophelia?" he asked, "What are you doing here? What's on your mind?" Ophelia glanced around for a long second before moving her hand to her chest.

"I need a little help with a project," she whispered. The man raised an eyebrow at her.

"With what?" he asked.

"Vacation," the other angel replied. The man's face became rather grim as he shook his head.

"We can't," he whispered.

"Why not?" Ophelia asked.

"It's too dangerous," the man said.

"But we have a strong lead!" she cried.

"It won't work!" the man yelled before trying to slam the door in her face.

Yet, that woman refused to give up. She, Harry, and Allen needed these two men to help them get out of the city.

"Hear me out!" she yelled at both ends.

"Fuck off!" the dark-skinned man shouted as he tried to shut the door with her foot inside.

"Please leave me alone," the pale man pleaded as he tried to shut the door with her foot inside. Ophelia still refused to give up. She geared up for a stronger argument as she shoved her arm into both cracks.

"At least meet the guy," she said, "Hear him out and then you'll see. I won't leave until you agree to." Both men were backed into a corner as they remembered how persistent she could be. In the end, they just gave up with resistance.

"Fine," the dark-skinned angel grumbled, "Anything to shut you up and make you go away.'

"Fine," the pale angel said in a soft voice.

"Show him to me," both men said.

"Follow me," Ophelia said as she turned to walk down the hall. She kept an eye behind her the whole time. There would be no way in hall she would let these two new recruits slip away from her grasp.
