Sorry I’m late on this chapter. I hope you enjoy it. 🙂
The next day, Summer pondered about whether or not she was going to meet Faith. She had seemed sincere with her apology, but Summer was so angry with her. Faith had promised to stay at Summer’s birthday party, yet she had ran off with no explanation.
Summer finally decided that the visit might clear things up. She didn’t want to lose her friend.
Meanwhile, Faith was waiting at The Café very impatiently. She had no idea if Summer was going to show up. And she was risking her high position in the organization if she did this. But she didn’t have a choice. Summer was Faith’s best friend. She needed to fix things between them.
Finally, Summer showed up and sat at the table with Faith. She didn’t say a word. The silence lasted a long, long time before they said anything.
“Summer, I’m so, so, so sorry that I keep leaving you. I promise you, I have real reasons for leaving,” Faith said.
Summer crossed her arms. “Okay then. What are your reasons?”
Faith squirmed in her seat. “I’m not supposed to tell…”
“Yeah, of course you’re not. That’s just so convenient, isn’t it?” Summer said angrily.
Tears welled up in Faith’s eyes. “Summer, would I ever lie to you?” she croaked.
Summer’s expression softened ever so slightly. “You used to be able to tell me everything. Back when we were little kids, you told me everything and you never ran away. What happened to that? What happened to us?”
“Nothing happened to us. Nothing happened to you. It’s all my fault.” Faith looked around and then leaned forward and whispered. “I can tell you my secret, but you have to follow me. Trust me.”
Summer hesitated. She wasn’t sure if she could trust her. Everything could be a lie. Summer wasn’t sure if she could believe a single word that Faith said.
“Okay. Where are we going?” Summer agreed.
Faith’s smile grew a little. “You just have to follow me.”
Faith got out of her seat and held the door open for Summer as they walked out of The Café.
Summer followed Faith down to a dark alleyway. There was graffiti all over the side of the dingy brick wall.
“This is where you brought me? How does this clear things up?” Summer crossed her arms again.
Faith turned to the graffiti covered wall. She placed her hand flat against the wall and closed her eyes. She whispered something that Summer couldn’t understand.
Faith removed her hand and a sudden burst of light erupted from the circle of bricks. the bricks moved out of the way to reveal a white pathway with fog layering the bottom of the floor.
“What the…?!” Summer said in shock.
Faith reached out for Summer’s hand. “You want to know what I’ve been leaving for? Come on in.”
Summer nervously took Faith’s hand and stepped through the pathway. The brick wall quickly closed behind them.
Faith pulled Summer into a big white room filled with a bunch of people. And were they wearing… wings?
“Welcome to headquarters!”Faith exclaimed.
“Headquarters for what?” Summer asked, still in shock.
Faith flashed a large and slightly mischievous smile.
“This is the headquarters for the Angels.”
