The Crying Angel

By kickassfu All Rights Reserved ©

Fantasy / Romance

Chapter 1

The Devil has died today.

He was cruel, ruthless, evil and unmistakably hated by all. Well, all but one, an angel, who was quiet but kind, pure and open-hearted. She saw beneath the dirt, through the darkness.

The Devil was all those awful things, but he was also loving, a protector of those he loved, a mourner of those he lost. All those years had broken his heart and destroyed his soul, but in the angel’s eyes he was but a suffering being that needed affection and care. Most of all what people did not understand was that he’d only hurt those who deserved it. Innocent souls would always be under his protection, never under his punishment.

The Devil has died today and an angel is crying for him.

Rumbling thunder and heavy rain deafened her heartbreaking cries, no one would ever hear her. Kneeling on the ground filled with grass, the dirt soaking through her white dress, and looking up at the sky she let the tears fall, as if there was no tomorrow. The world as she knew was coming to an end, a bitter and sad end, and she was the only one grieving over it.

Unable to kneel any longer she lied on the muddy ground, dirtying herself in the process, begging for his return, cursing his death and blaming the world for her pain.

The crying angel only wanted things to be as they once were.

For him to be alive.

For him to be there with her and hold her.

For him to protect her of everything evil and unjust.

She just wanted him.

Nothing else but him.

With all her heart and body.

But that is not the way of the world. The world is awfully unfair and no matter how much she prayed for him, the angel knew she’d never gaze upon his face again or touch his lips once more. He was dead and she was not. The world is unfair but God is even more so.

The Devil wasn’t evil and God isn’t good, it was never as simple as that. So much so that an angel who is supposed to love God hates him and instead loves the Devil she’s supposed to hate. Maybe that’s why her wings aren’t as white as they used to be; maybe her unnatural feelings are the reason they are now dark, almost completely black. He used to love her wings, would he still love them now? Even after they lost their brightness? Would he still love her now, even if she was no longer an angel?

The Devil has died today and an angel has taken his place.

sunshinebennybear: First, I would like to address the elephant in the room. The author forgets her own character's names. She mixed up Liam for Jace, Harri for Maiya, and Freya for Clary. I love The Mortal Instruments as much as the next fangirl, but I find myself unforgiving about this. Throughout the story there ...

Elizabeth Robbins: 4.5 starsAs far as apocalypse stories go, this one took a new direction. I'm glad someone finally addressed the need for a vampire apocalypse! This is sort of a multi-genre festival of delights. With hints of forced societies, vamps, hunters, romance, apocalypse, government conspiracy, and thrill...

Sandra Estrada: I loved every minute of it and I thank my lucky stars that brought me to the story, it's been a whirlwind of emotions, plot twist after plot twist but I never got tired of them.

MelanyFrey: This story is just so realistic and so amazingly written that I felt I was a part of it. It starts off completely ordinary, describing the lives of three young brothers, then slowly shifting the focus on one of them, putting him into the spotlight and following him into this unusual, but yet so r...

Schaelz: I was intrigued from the second I started reading, and it kept my interest the whole way through. Chelsea has a way with words that will enchant you until the very end. She is very poetic with the way she mixes genres and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The main character is also very relat...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

Kasey Pinney: This book had me from the beginning. I never came across a part I didn't want to read or that didn't entertain me. The characters are well developed and the internal conversations fit the book well.
