44- The Fallen
I don’t know how long have I been on Earth, roaming it like a homeless Human. Yes, Human.
My wings turned totally black, and now I’m incapable of spreading them. They feel heavy on my shoulders even though I’ve been sitting in my place for some time with black feathers surrounding me.
Doesn’t that mean, my wings should become lighter?
I pulled my knees more to my chest, wrapping my arms around them while shedding silent tears.
Time is ticking, and I won’t be able to hide my presence any longer. Hoseok has been constantly coming to Earth, searching for me.
He once walked past me almost feeling my presence, but thankfully I was able to hide it. I don’t want him to see me like this.
I feel so ashamed of myself.
A meowing sound made me suddenly lookup. A cat was meowing at me and kept walking towards my direction while rubbing herself against my leg.
“I guess I have no power left in me to hide my presence any longer,” I sadly said with a fake smile then carried her up in my arms while caressing her head with my fingers.
After a few minutes of playing with the kitten, she jumped and ran off. I sighed and went back to hugging my knees, but suddenly I heard a voice.
“What are you exactly waiting for Jimin?”
I looked around and was finally able to see Hoseok, who was walking towards me with someone accompanying him.
“Leave,” I said and quickly hid my face, thinking that he won’t be able to see me.
However, I felt his presence in front of me as he kneeled down to my level then placed his hand on my weighed shoulder, saying “Come with me. We can figure things out together.”
He tried to pull me up but I pulled my arm away from him harshly as I yelled, “God did this to me because I am a sinner. Soon I will wither and become some human’s infant. So stop coming to me,” I lowered my head shamefully while muttering, “I don’t want you to end up like me. Leave please.”
A heavy sigh came out of someone but not Hoseok so I looked behind him, seeing Jungkook.
What is he doing here?
“Listen there Jimin, I’m already dealing with so much crap so come with us peacefully. Taehyung might know how to help you,” He sounded annoyed, and his tone didn’t show any signs of care.
“I’m not going anywhere,” I said while firmly hugging my legs.
“Jimin, stop with your nonsense-” Hoseok was about to start throwing shit at me but I quickly interrupted him.
“Because I can’t move,” I avoided making eye contact with any of the two in front of me, feeling how pitifully looking I should be right now.
I seriously want the ground to swallow me up.
“Okay hop on, I’ll carry you to Yoongi’s place,” Hoseok said while turning his back to me so I could climb up.
I bit my lower lip and held onto him as we went to Yoongi’s place. Taehyung and Yoongi looked at us as Taehyung said unamused, “I see you are still alive.”
Hoseok placed me down on Yoongi’s bed as Jungkook started saying to Taehyung, “You can heal him right?”
Taehyung exchanged a weird look with Jungkook.
What’s with those two?
“Well yeah, but I said I won’t because God will not be happy about it,” Tae shrugged, but still held onto the eye contact both him and Jungkook were having.
“Listen Jungkook, even if I healed him, it will be considered temporary healing. God needs to be the one who actually stop what’s happening to Jimin. Do you understand?” Taehyung tried to convince Jungkook, who held a very blank expression.
“I don’t care. Just heal him or extract whatever is causing the main problem. Ah, why not just do another body rework since you are pretty good at manipulating everything you fucking touch,” Jungkook yelled out at the top of his lungs the last 2 words.
Everything Jungkook said made no sense to me, but I wasn’t in a good shape to be even thinking of what’s really going on.
My body isn’t gonna make it through today.
For a moment I lost balance and felt my body fall back on the bed as my eyes started to close.
My hearing isn’t doing well either.
Everyone felt being locked inside a room while their voices were fighting to get out of the thick walls.
My eyelids were heavier than my wings felt like minutes ago.
I think my time is up.
Well, I hope you are hearing my last prayer. Please forgive this weak fallen angel. I feel sincerely ashamed for angering you. I don’t know what I did to make you this angry at me, but I’m sure I deserve whatever is happening to me.
I’m sorry, and I will try to serve you better in my human form.
Moments of silence filled the air around me, making me feel at peace. A smile crept onto my face, but suddenly a loud and clear voice made every hair on my body stand in fear.
“Aren’t you gonna fight a little?”
Unexpectedly, I found myself able to sit up and see everything clearly. However, what I saw in front of me brought me to my knees, and my eyes to brim with tears.
God was standing in the middle of the room. Hoseok was looking at the floor. Taehyung and Jungkook were standing behind God while I was kneeling in front of him with tears coating my ugly face.
I tried to rub away the tears, but the stream didn’t stop.
God heard my prayer and came to me. I don’t deserve this generosity.
“I lifted your pain. Stand up Angel,” God said with his deep voice which always felt like thunder crashing on Earth every time he said a word.
“I don’t deserve your compassion,” I kept my head low while uttering those words.
“Well, I intentionally forced you out of Heaven because there is something else which I wanted you to do. This isn’t compassion or sympathy,” God stated which baffled me.
I felt him shift from looking at me to look at Hoseok, who was standing a little far on his right side as God spoke to him saying, “You need to go to Heaven and make sure Namjoon stays there. I need to have a discussion with those three.”
Hoseok immediately nodded and disappeared into thin air while leaving the rest of us in Yoongi’s room along with God, who for some reason had something to tell us.
“Take a seat the three of you because we are going on a ride.”
I wanna announce 2 things:
1- Next chapter is God’s POV something I’m really excited to write. It’s also the only God POV chapter. Most of the plot will be unraveled next chapter.
2- THIS BOOK IS 55 CHAPTERS LONG. Okay, I’ve said it. Almost 10 chapters left. And I hope you guys don’t kill me by the end of the book.
Thanks for keeping up with me ^-^
Yours Authornim ;)
