Over the next several weeks, we will be sharing excerpts of the angelic characters from a work in progress, THE DARKNESS WITHIN, Book Three by Angelica Hart and Zi.
ANGEL WINGS OF HOPE
Aether - Afriel's and Charmeine's coalition of hope
Dear Angels, please wrap your arms around those who are hurting today, and let them feel how much you love and care for them… ~ universal prayerAfriel: Angel of youth
Charmeine: Angel of harmony
Afriel, the Angel of Youth and Charmeine, Angel of Harmony were almost always hand-in-hand. Considering they were eternally child-like in appearance and forever pleasant, most thought they’d linger in the part of the Aether that was vivid and multicolored rather than the darker space they occupied. Their preferred space was an enormous cavern with bluish tones and diffused pinkish light at the far end as if a distant sun. With vibrant white hair, enormous doll-like eyes which irradiated and pastel shaded clothes, they were the light. None else was needed.
Yet, their wings defied their pale personas. Bigger than either of them in size, they were wispy, boned, dark, slightly tattered and more bat-like than angelic.
"Catch me if you can," throttled Afriel as she raced deep, peering from behind a rock.
"Are... you... my... firefly?" asked Charmeine.
"I am your game... come on and play."
"If... I win... will... you... feed... me?"
"Red grapes and celery."
The two bounded in joyful amusement.
Charmeine symbolized how both dark and light in co-existence, created harmony while Afriel believed their wings represented the power of light over dark. After all, they were in charge of the wings not the other way around. They never argued the point, for both agreed somehow their wings were Wings of Hope and that was all they needed to know. Plus, they were in agreement with mostly all else.
“It is time to make a difference,” Afriel announced, her voice as mature sounding as a woman of fifty, thought she was many centuries older.
“I… feel… the… discord…. disquiets… my… soul….” Charmeine spoke in pauses, considering every melodious syllable should have its own moment to shine.
“Then we are in agreement, helping Jerry Sarin would help many?”
“The… spirit… wishes… it… so.”
With a whisper of sound and a turtle’s blink, the two bled through the membrane that separated dimensions.
