I would like to introduce the beginning of Reconciled from my rough draft. Please let me know what you think. Here you go…
Her eyes were like sunflowers swimming in a sea of blue; a case of central heterochromia where there are two different colors in the same iris of the eye. She was different, but not because of her eyes. There was a secret inside her that not even she knew. It was a secret that soon would be revealed.
The angel stood across the cemetery watching Marie. He knew that what he had to tell her would drastically change her life, but it was time. It was time for the fallen angels to be reconciled back to God. Therefore, Vincent was sent to Marie.
“We know who she is.”
Vincent turned around to face the fallen angel.
“This plan will not work.”
“It is already working. Lucifer has turned on all of you.”
“He is a traitor, along with the few he got to follow him.”
“The fallen angels have an opportunity for redemption. This is the last chance you will get,” Vincent warned.
“We didn’t ask for a second chance. The war will continue. Xavier has taken over what Lucifer abandoned.”
“This will not end well for you.”
“We shall see,” Marek said and vanished in a plume of black smoke.
“It has begun,” Vincent breathed and went back to watching Marie.
Marie stared at the newly covered graves of her parents. She could hardly believe they were gone. It was two weeks ago that her parents were on their way to meet her for dinner. It’s such a cliché to say that it was a dark and stormy night, but it was. The rain in Washington can be relentless, making it impossible to see through at times. Another car lost control and ran into her parents. The impact left no survivors in either car. After the funeral Marie moved into her parents house and took a leave of absence from her job so she could process the loss. However, it was now time to go back to work. It would be what her parents wanted; for her to go on with her life. She wiped the tears from her eyes and left the cemetery.
