Fallen Ch. 5

Here you go guys Ch. 5 or is it 6 who knows. Read and Comment I need the love with all the shit that has been going on in my day to day. Anyways enjoy!
The smell of fresh salty air always worked to calm my nerves, today was no different. It assaulted me from the moment I left the rank smell of biker bar, I can only take the scent of stale beer and cigarettes so long before I had to be near something fresh and clean. That women, no creature cause that is truly what she was, did a number on me. I’ve never been that angry in my entire life. Where had all that rage come from, why did my back burn like something was trying to crawl through my skin? I absent-mindedly reached back to feel if there was something there. To my relief there was nothing, I let out a heavy sigh. Focusing back on my train of thought; how did they know each other, did they really smell my arousal or where they just reading my body language? Deep breathes Chase, Keagan will explain everything he said so. So many questions to ask, but as I continued my walk in the early afternoon sun, drenching my pale white skin with its golden warmth my mind strayed to happier things. They smell of all the local restaurants and food vendors mingling in the wind reminding me that I was very hungry. Then next came the wind swirling wrapping me in a velvet soft blanket of warmth and salt water, flowing from me feet all the way up to flutter my long eye lashes. I let a little giggle escape my mouth, closing my eyes I leaned my head back and laughed into the wind, that seemed to spur it on, as if the wind was alive and could feel my happiness. I felt weightless almost airborne, light as a feather, not a single care in the world as the wind whipped and caressed the skin left bare by my baby blue tank top and brown khaki cargo shorts.

I hadn’t even noticed that I had wandered down to the picnic area of the beach. This was one of my favorite places to come when my mind was heavy with worry or grief. I guess I auto-piloted here but that couldn’t be this place was over a mile away from where the bar was, closer to my house someplace I have walked to many times. How the hell did I get here? Great another worry to add to the list, how will Keagan know where I am he has my phone in his pocket, ugh! I am sure this isn’t the place because I would definitely remember walking here, it just has to be another part of the beach that looks familiar, yea that’s it. But as I looked around I noticed all the things that always brought me here; the rocks that sat cropped out deep into the ocean that looked like a grey and silver hand reaching for help, the line of trees that blanketed the shore from the houses beyond giving you a private serine less commercialized section of beach, and then there was my favorite part the beach volleyball nets. I have spent years sitting here watching the local guys get sweaty as they play hours of guy on guy matches. Sometimes they were in groups but mostly it was one on one, small towns sometimes have a harder time of attracting a lot of groups interested in the same things.

Today however there was a group of six guys, I have never seen that many before or for that matter these guys. Who are they, I know everyone in town? I took a seat on an outcrop of boulders nestled between the trees and the beach near the guys playing volleyball and watch while I thought about everything that had happened today. I guess I was staring, because the one closest to me came stalking towards me with a determined look on his face. I couldn’t help but to continue to stare either from lust, or fear making it impossible to move. He may be stalking towards me in a rapid motion through sand, but he was extremely graceful like a floating dance of feet and sand.
“Hi, I’m Raph.” He gave me a pleasant smile that I briefly saw between my eyes roaming his entire body. His voice was husky gravely even, sounding much older that he looked to be.
“I’m Chase.” I replied sounding very shaky. I was scared I was about to be beaten up for obviously staring at this guy and his buddies and he was just the scouting party to make sure I was alone. I drew in an audible breath to try to calm my nervous, I just didn’t mean it to sound so loud.
“Don’t be nervous hatchling, I came to say Hi cause I could see how in distress you are. Plus your are just so freaking cute. He reached out to rub the back of his hand across my cheek, I leaned into his touch, not having much of this my whole life I let myself sink into this indulgence. I will have to explain all this to Kea later but for now I am going to enjoy this attention.
“Uh, Thanks. But I think my boyfriend would probably like you to keep your hands to yourself.” I gave him a reluctant half smile hoping he would at least understand that I was enjoying it greatly, but I can’t just go around being with every guy who finally shows me interest. I gave myself a few more moments to look this guy over. He was much taller then me 6’ 3” at least, very broad of shoulder, Deep rich olive toned skin much like Keagan’s with espresso brown short spiky hair. He had muscles on every square inch of his frame bulging and flexing as he breathed and moved. I had a hard time not licking a trail from his abs up to his nipples as he stood over me looking down at me with eyes so rich and deep brown like twin pools of Hershey’s chocolate, flecked with glittering gold that shined like the mid day sun. I felt dizzy and had to brace myself to make sure I didn’t fall of this rock.
“Would you like to join us for a game?”
“I’m not very good at anything that requires much athleticism.” I blushed under his steamy gaze. I was getting very hot and needed to get out from under this stare of his.
“Oh come on. Indulge me, since you can’t be my guy let me at least show you what you’re missing.” He flashed me a brilliant white smile of perfect teeth.  I offered him my hand and let him left me from the rocks. He offered me his elbow like a real gentleman and I took him placing my arm looped through his. I snuggled closer to his body relishing this much attention from a god. He looked down at me and smiled.
“You are absolutely the cutest thing I have seen in a Millennia. I had only wished I had know about you and this peaceful town sooner.” What an odd statement. I didn’t want to interrupt this amazing moment in my life with stupid questions so I did the coy thing and hid my face in his arm and said “thank you”.
“Chase this is Mike, Gabe, Ry, Izzy and Zeke. These are my comrades and buddies.”
Ry was the first to speak. “Leave you alone for 5 minutes Raph and you are already poaching the locals.” He had a voice like warm cookies straight from the oven, you know how they just warm and delight you straight to your core, yea that’s exactly what he did to me. I let go of Raph and whent to Ry and gave this man a hug.
“If you wanted one of your own you could have went yourself. No need to bedazzle this one Ry he has a boyfriend. I Just wanted him to know who we were.”
He gave a look to all the men who were all so unbelievably gorgeous like statues done long ago from solid marble, except this marble was warm and soft and nice to rub on. That look though what was it; jealousy, anger, no it had to be something else, more along the lines of fear. I looked up at the guy I was snuggled into, he had more of a square jaw much more masculine then Raph with blonde hair kept short but parted on the side but still gorgeous beyond human perfection, these men they were almost angelic. I gasped in my head, these names I know these names, well not these exact names but they are all very familiar like plays on their actual real names.

I pushed off Ry and did my turn all the men were broad of shoulder all over six foot tall all built for war. Mike had black hair like the deepest darkest moment of night with black eyes to match, Gabe had Carmel colored hair with hazel eyes that seemed to change color right before me, Izzy was the shortest of the 6 men his hair was grey with white streaks he kept it short like me spiked in a way that made it look like a grey and white flame to match my red and orange one. His eyes were a non-descript color of grey like a storm out at sea. Zeke could be my twin, except he was 6’ 2” and had muscles but we both had red hair and green eyes he just let his hair grow out down to touch his neck but he kept it swept back.
Something moved at the edge of the court and all the men tensed and flanked me, putting me deep inside them in a very macho protective way. I could feel the muscles coiling under their skin, then my own skin was pricked with electricity but nothing was there I looked every where, nothing was on me but I could feel it humming and vibrating all around me. It was incredibly uncomfortable to stand here. I tried to step forward but I was grabbed and braced against a very solid body I couldn’t move an inch.
“Let the boy go Ark’s came a very familiar voice.”
“Keagan!” I yelled for him. Everyone relaxed all the tension and electricity leaving the circle of men. I ran to Kea and hugged him tight.
“So, what’s been going on? How did you get all the way out here?”
“I honestly don’t know.” I looked in to Keagan’s bright eyes and suddenly felt okay like a deep knowledge of hope was locked away inside those tiny pools of blue.
“ Honestly Raz you need to do a better job of watching after this Hatchling. He is manifesting already.” This came from Raph.
“I know what he is doing but this is sudden even for his blood line.”
“Never underestimate the power of ones own soul Raz. You should know this better than anyone of us.” He motioned to all the other men.  “Now take him home and teach him NOW! It sounded like an order or a command.
“I do not take orders from the likes of you Raph.” The two men came face to face Keagan growing in height till he was face to face with the other unyielding man.
The air around the men grew heavy, so hard to breathe in so I backed up a bit more till the air was lighter. A sphere of dust, sand and water grew around the two men electricity arched and flashed from them crackling into the now heavy with thunder clouds midday sky.  What the HELL is going on here, did I black out and wind up in a comic book?
I huge crackling sound like a flag whipping in the wind sounded and I instantly snapped my gaze back to the two men facing off only this time what I saw was nothing like I could have even expected. The two men were now engulfed in a storm of power so thick and heavy I wasn’t sure the beach would survive, but what really caught my eye was Keagan now had wings, waite what? KEAGAN HAS WINGS! Yes he has wings the color of pure spun gold dipped in the whitest snow I have ever seen spanning what had to be 12 feet across. They were put back in an attack posture franticly flapping like they wanted to tear into the other man who had his own set of wings to match Kea’s only his were pure white like the freshest snow fall in winter.
The two men went at it fist flying wings slashing at flapping around. They went airborne. Keagan came at Raph punching him solidly in the face. Raph recovered landing a job into Kea’s ribs. I bright gleam of metal flashed at Raph’s back.  I had less then a heartbeat to react. I let the rage, the fear consume me bringing me back to how I felt in the bar. The fury hit me in a slam in my gut, then I let out a scream that set the sky on fire and all the men turned to me in that moment shocked at what was now standing in my place. I opened my eyes to see all the men hovering in the sky that burned the color of fire; red, orange, yellow I looked at the men I saw the briefest flash of fear on all there eyes and in that moment I knew exactly what I had to do, Like I had the knowledge in me this whole time just locked deep inside and this anger had let me release it.
My own set of wings had come to me only mine weren’t white and all things beautiful, no mine were inherently different, like me. Black feather like those of a raven that when you turn in the light and catch all the colors of the rainbow at the base then faded into a deep rich bronze color at the tips. I flexed them and realized they were only about 10 foot across but that’s all I needed. I held the image of Keagan in my mind and just like that I was floating next to him flapping my wings in an irritated fashion.  All the men jumped back flapping their wings franticly trying to scramble away to regroup and understand what it is they are dealing with.  Raph tried to pull that sword out from his back but I was faster a sword that was matte black and edge in flames so bright they burned blue and white flashed down and across his chest opening a crimson gash where it was only an instant ago.
“What that can’t be!” The edge to his voice gave it all away, he was scared very scared.
“Go, tell your master what you have seen today and tell him I am no longer a child and he needn’t send his dogs to watch over me. I have what I need.” I looked to Keagan who was wearing a shit eating grin.
“Now you” I point my sword at Kea “ We are leaving and you have some explaining to do. Grab my hand and we will be off and away from these dogs.” I spit at the name dogs. Kea did exactly as I told him and in that moment we were back in my back yard. No wings no swords just the two of us standing near the edge of my pool. Then the world went black.


  1. Whoa! That was awesome!
    So they are all angels, but what is Chase? Part angel? Part demon or something?.... very intrigued. Can't wait till the next chapter!



  2. So I'm trying to remember my very limited knowledge of angels (my kabbalistic knowledge is *very* small). But I thought I remembered that the archangels were the most powerful of the heavenly host. If Keagan is equally as powerful, and Chase more powerful, then I'm extremely interested. This is the first really *unique* thing you've done with the story (beyond your descriptions, which are always very rich and detailed). Editors always looks for plot aspects that set storylines apart, and this - the change of their power structure - is a mind-blowing and exciting change. It means your reader won't be able to predict who can top who... and that's just kind of sexy. ;)

    Great chapter, JT. Keep them coming, lover!
