Chapter 1: Happy sweet 16... or is it?
I woke up in the middle of the night at exactly 12:00 am. I looked around my room on instinct thinking that there was someone hiding in my room.When I looked at my window I saw two figures outside. I shrieked with fear and hid under my covers. Who were those two people in my window? Did they want to kidnap me and rape me? I slowly peaked out of the covers and noticed they were gone.'Stop being so stupid, no one was out there' I thought to myself. But I still felt like someone or something was watching me. I didn't fall asleep until it was 2:30 am.
I woke up the next morning tired, but my mood changed when I remembered it was my 16th birthday. I jumped out of bed and was about to run to my parents when I remembered what happened last night. I decided to get dressed and eat first. I slowly walked to my dresser to get my bra and pants. When I looked in the mirror I gasped. I stared at my reflection in shock. I turned my head slowly to confirm it. I nearly screamed but kept quiet as I stared at the light yellow wings on my back.
'OMG! Where the heck did these come from? Am I dead? I bet those two guys outside my window last night had something to do with this. I'm going to murder them if I ever see them again. But first I'm going to make them get rid of these wings. Oh crap, what am I going to do when mom and dad see my wings?' I started to breathe fast and I tried to calm down so I didn't hyperventilate. I slowly grabbed my pants and bra, and I went to my closet to get dressed. I came out in torn jeans, cowboy boots, a blue plaid shirt with holes in the back so my new and annoying wings could fit, and a jacket to hide my wings.
I walked into the kitchen and grabbed a bowl and the cereal. I went to the refrigerator to get the milk. I made my breakfast and began to eat it when my mom came into the kitchen. "Morning mom." I said to her happy. She looked at me and screamed. "Who are you and what are you doing in my house?!" She yelled. "I'm your daughter, Sam." I told her. "I have no daughter, get out of my house!" By then my dad had entered the kitchen with a gun in his hands. He looked at me. I saw the anger and fear in his eyes. I raised my hands slowly and said, "Don't you guys remember me? I'm your daughter Sam. I'm 16 today. I'm your only child. I'm your guys little miracle baby. How can you guys not remember?" My dad lowered the gun a little but he kept his eyes on me. "As far as I know we have no daughter, nor did we ever want one. So I suggest you get out of this house before I shoot you." said my dad raising the gun again. I backed away slowly with my hands still raised. I walked out the back door onto the deck. He followed me slowly with the gun pointed at my head. I was so scared and sad. My parents don't even recognize me. 'Where am I going to live?' A tear slowly rolled down my cheek as I took off my jacket showing my wings, and jumped off the deck and flew as best as I could away.
The school bell rang as I slowly emerged from the woods. I had my jacket back on to hide my wings. I walked across the street quickly as the roads became filled with cars. As I walked into the door of my school, I felt that feeling again last night. Like someone was watching me. I decided to ignore it because it was just stupid to even think that one of the men from last night were at my school. Then again it was possible. I walked a little faster down my hallway and into my first class.
My Science teacher looked up at me and said," You're a bit late for your first day of school. Trying to be a bad girl already?" I was so confused at her words. 'What does she mean 'first day?' It's the middle of the semester.'I walked to the first open seat I saw.I sat in between Michael,the blonde headed quarterback, and Ashley, the black haired phyco. My wings started to spread and I had to struggle to keep them tight against my body.Michael, tapped my shoulder and I turned towards him. "Hey beautiful I wanted to ask you if you had a date thisweekend. You could come over to my house for some fun." he whispered as a movie about robots or something started. I laughed a little and said,"No thanks Michael. I'm not interested in you and your little friend down there." I whispered, pointing between his legs. He looked at me shocked."How did you know my name and how did you know that was what I had in mind?" He asked with his voice a little shaky. I shook my head and turned away from him not answering his question.
The movie was a little interesting but also really boring. I fell asleep twice only to be woken up by Ashley's screaming. 'What is wrong with that girl?' I asked myself. I stayed up the rest of the class time. When the dismiss bell rang I hurried out of the room. As soon as I walked into the hallway I felt like someone was watching me again. I turned around and saw a man that looked like he was a senior following me. I walked down the hall faster only to find out he was still right behind me. I ended up running to my next class and as soon as I entered the classroom, he was gone. 'What on earth is going on?' I sat in my regular seat and my art teacher began telling us about an artist that was phycotic but was an amazing drawer.
The same thing happened the entire day. When class was over The man was following me. When I entered a classroom, he was gone. I was at my final class for the day and I didn't want it to end. I didn't want that man to follow me all day while I wandered the streets looking for a place to sleep. In the middle of class I looked out the window and saw him outside in the field. He turned towards the window and it looked like he was smiling... at me! I ended up blushing because he was cute, but I couldn't allow his looks to distract me from what he might have done last night. I went back to studying but I felt his eyes on me the entire time.
When I bell rang. I was the first one outside. I was going to confront the man that has been following me. I felt him watching me and when I turned around, he was only centimeters from where I was. I shrieked a little and jumped away from him. After a moment I stood straight and looked at him in the eyes. "Who are you and why are you following me?" I asked as confident as possible. He looked at me and after a moment he finally answered,"I'm sorry for scaring you all day today, but I had to make sure you were safe. I'm Derek, your angel gaurdian." I looked at him confused."Don't you mean 'gaurdian angel'?" I asked and he just smirked. "Not exactly. Come with me and I'll explain when we get home." He told me. "I have no home and I don't feel comfortable following you. Proove to me your an angel gaurdian or whatever, then I might reconsider." I said stubbornly. He nodded and removed his leather jacket. All of a sudden, huge white wings sprouted from his back. I looked at them and could barely look away. "Now will you follow me?" he asked as if everything was perfectly normal. I didn't think when I nodded to his question. He smiled and took hold of my hand. "How good are you at flying?"Derek asked turning towards me again. I slowly answered," Not very good considering I only tried them once." He looked at me suprised. "Wow most people just try to hide them let alone use them. Do you like them?" he asked me looking me in the eye. I answered," No, my dad threatened me and it was my only way from dying."
"Wow. I'm sorry you had to go through that. So do you think you can fly or not?" he asked me again. I shook my head and he instantly picked me up. A surge of heat filled my body and being this close to him I could smell his cinnoman and peaches scent. I looked at him a little shocked. "You might want to hold on tight." he said before we shot up into the air leaving my school ad my old life behind.
