A romance story that will make you wish that you were in it

Angelic
By: Angel

*Chapter 1*
Introduction


Birds singing and I was wide-awake. I could not sleep any longer; my grandfather was leaving today to Paris. I thought about how much I would be missing him after he was gone. Today, we were having a farewell party for him, so I decided to get up earlier; it’s not like I’m going to get anymore sleep as it is. I stood up and caught a glimpse of the clock… it was 8.
“Still 2 more hours ‘till the party.” I sighed.
I looked beside the clock, and there lay my family picture.
“Good morning dad” I said standing there, and then went to the closet.
My name is Kate Austin and I am 16 years old. My mom is downstairs probably preparing my breakfast and well, my grandfather is probably already at the party. He likes to be the first one there, and the last one out, I do not really know why. My dad is… not here anymore. He died, just last month, in a fight. You would probably think he is weird, taking a fight so far as to getting killed, but this is different, our family is different.
“Mom! Can you come in for a sec?” I yelled downstairs.
After just a few seconds, she was up. I guess she’s done cooking, I sniffed in the air which was filled with the sent of pancakes.
“Pancakes?” I guess, already knowing the answer.
“Yup” she said cheerfully.
My mom, Catlin Austin, 38 years old, loves cooking. She always encourages me to cook with her, but I let her do it, since I’m not usually a morning person. She would always make something different. Today may be pancakes, but she probably has something in it. She takes a lot of time on her cooking, today she probably woke up at six o’clock just to make everything perfect.
“What do you need sweetie?’’ she asked.
“Well.” I looked towards the floor and back at her.
My mom sighed and looked at me.
“Katie, I can’t pick out your clothes forever.” She said as she bent down to look at the pile of clothes on the floor.
As she went through my clothes, I sat down on my bed, and began to think what was going to happen at this party. In my life, anything can happen, and when I say that, I am serious. As I told you before, my family is, different. They are special. My family, well, they have powers, and when I say powers I don’t mean the power of controlling the world, well, they could, but no. When I say powers, I mean the super hero kind of powers, like super strength, or flying. It may sound stupid, but it’s true, every single one of them has powers, every aunt, every uncle, every cousin, and even my own mom! Except for me, everyone in my family has powers.
I do not know much, but when my family gets married to someone outside, that has no powers, that person will have to go through ritual. After the ritual ends, they will immediately have powers. But before that, they will have to go through some sort of test to see if they will use the powers for good or not, but I don’t see the need for that, so far not one person has failed that test. Therefore, when they have children, he or she will also have powers, they won’t need to go through the ritual.
I do not know why I do not have powers like the others, maybe god does not believe in me, or maybe it is a punishment because I did something wrong in my other lives.
“There we go” my mom said while handing me a light blue dress with a white ribbon like bow just above the stomach.
“Thanks mom” I smiled at her as she walked out of the room.
I put on the dress after she left and walked over to the mirror in my room. The dress went right to my knees. I didn’t really like to show my legs, it feels uncomfortable. I sighed and walked out of my room, did my morning routine, and went into the kitchen.
I looked at the kitchen clock, and it said 9:00. I had spent one hour picking my clothes out, well, my mom did. I went to the table and took a bite out of the pancakes that my mom made and I was right. Inside it was something sweet and chewy, it was great as always. I finished my breakfast, leaving nothing behind, (my mom didn’t like wasting food) and grabbed one of my jackets, incase I get cold.
I ran out to see that my mom was already waiting in her new silver Mercedes. She was wearing a white dress shirt that made her look professional, and a black skirt that reached her knees. I rushed into the car and sat down.






*Chapter 2*
Fated Meeting


As I got out of the car, I looked up at the building standing before me. I looked at my mom’s watch and it seems that we are still a bit early. I entered the old familiar building that we have all of our parties at, and yes, we do have a lot of parties.
After I went into the building, my mom went up to the floor we were having the party on, we booked the whole floor, it was expensive, but we need a lot of space because we have a big family, and we are very close to each other, so it felt wrong to leave someone out.
I went the other direction to a small room on another floor. I walked in and saw three of my uncles gathered together at a small table.
“Hey” I said trying to get their attention.
“Hi” one of my uncles said as they looked up.
“How long is today’s speech?” I asked.
“Pretty long, I hope you will be able to memorize it all” one of my other uncles said.
“No worries, I still have a lot of time so it should be fine” I said, unsure of weather I was telling a lie or the truth.
“Oh, and by the way, you will have to introduce a new member of the ‘Protectors’ today.” My third uncle said.
“Okay, I’ll see you at the party then” I said, waved good-bye and left the room.
I sighed and looked at the sheets of papers my uncles had just given me. At every party, they would give me a long speech to memorize. Then I would have to read it out when the party begins. I guess they make me do it because they feel sorry for me, since I am the only one in my family that doesn’t have powers. I don’t them to pity me, but this is the only thing I can do for them, since I can’t help them with their “work”. In addition, I guess you should know by now that my family calls themselves the “protector.” It is a lame name, but a person would get used to it after hearing it for 16 years.
I went up to the floor that the party is being held and sat down at a table. I looked at the pieces of papers once again and started to memorize it. I have always had a good memory. I guess it makes up for the lack of not being-able-to-pick-out-my-own-clothes-in-the-morning.
When I got to the part of the new member, it made me wonder. It tells only the kids age, and his first name. That was unusual. I guess that everyone already knows him, except for me, so it did not mention his last name. Or, they might have just forgotten, but I highly doubt that, my uncles do not accept mistakes, they probably checked this over a millions times before handing it over to me. Anyways, I guess I don’t know everybody in my family.
After, when I finished memorizing the speech, I stood up and looked around. It seemed like everyone was here so I went up to the small stage in the front.
“Hello” I said, trying to get everyone’s attention.
I stood there for a couple of seconds until everyone quieted down, and then I started my speech.
“Thank you everyone for coming today.” I started.
“Today we have gathered for a farewell party for my grandfather, Alex Ackins. Although it is sad that he is leaving, I still wish him good luck on his journey to Paris. I hope you all will do the same.” I said.
I continued with my speech, and almost cried. I looked at my grandfather many times and every time he would smile and gave me a look that said he was proud of me.
“Last of all, I would like to introduce a new member of the ‘Protectors’.” I paused and looked at everyone. I could see that mostly everyone already knew, I guess news travels fast.
“He is 18 years old and his name is Max, I would like him to come up on the stage please.” I looked around curiously.
No one stood up so I thought that he was late or forgot about the party, then, suddenly, something tapped me from behind. I turned around instantly, and there I saw THE MOST handsome guy I have ever seen!


*Chapter 3*
First Attack


“Oh, hey, you must be Max” I said unaware that we were being watched.
“Yeah, that’s me, otherwise I won’t be up here standing on the stage” he gave me a big smile that show his brilliant white teeth.
I was completely mesmerized by his smile. I gathered all my strength to turn around to the audience. I then realized that they were all waiting for me to continue. I felt my cheeks getting warmer, and so to avoid looking at him, I continued the speech without looking at him again.
“So, Max, would you like to tell us more about yourself?” I asked, trying to show off how profession I can be, and trying not to show my teenage side.
“Depends on what you would like to know” he answered, this time I could not help but peek at his face. Once again, his looks got to me, but then I remembered that I can not mess this up, so I kept going.
“How about we start off with your last name?” I said.
“Well, I can not answer that question, but it’s not because I don’t trust you, it’s just that I do not have one.” His question startled me a bit, I really wanted to know why he didn’t have one, but I held back and asked some more questions.
“Well, then do you have powers?” I asked curiously.
“Of course, don’t all of the members of the ‘Protectors’ have powers?” he asked playfully.
“Well, yeah I guess.” I said, telling the truth because I wasn’t exactly in the “Protectors”.
I continued with some other easy questions and then let the audience ask him some. It seems that many girls were after him. As I got off the stage, I sighed, knowing that I have fallen in love with Max.
“Good job with the speech today sweetie” my mom said as I walked over to her table.
“Today’s was really long, I never do get where you got that brain of yours from.” She said again and gave me huge smile.
“Thanks mom” I said and smiled back at her.
My mom always complements me after I’m done with one of my speeches. She is always kind and kind of like a sister to me instead of my mom.
“And that boy Max wasn’t half bad also.” She continued and gave an even bigger smile.
“Moom!!” I said as I felt my cheeks burning up again.
“You’re not suppose to say that you’re a mom!” I practically yelled.
Even though I totally agreed with her, well more than agreed with her, what else can I say?
Yeah! He is totally fine! I wish he would as me out
Not. I wasn’t the type of girl to say those kind of things, and even though she felt like a sister, she was still my mom.
“Hey, mind if I sit here?” as soon as I heard that voice I knew who he was.
“Sure! Take my seat! I was just about to get something to eat.” My mom interrupted before I got to say anything.
I was watching my mom leave and then she turned around and winked at me. I sighed, wishing that Max hadn’t seen that.
“Hey” Max said.
“Hi” I replied.
“So was that your mom?” he asked.
“Yeah” I tried to keep all my answers short so that I won’t say anything embarrassing.
“She seems young” he said and then smiled.
I never got tired of looking at his smile, it was the most beautiful thing in the world, at least that’s what I thought.
“Yeah, well, she had me pretty young” I said, as I felt myself smiling back at him.
I saw him pause for a second and then he smiled again.
“Well, I came here to remind you of something.” He said
“Remind me?” I asked confused, while thinking back to the speech to see if I had forgotten something.
“Yeah, you forgot to tell me your name.” he said as his smile got even bigger.
“Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot to tell you my name.” I said, realizing that I hadn’t told him my name yet.
I felt embarrassed. I was standing up there, asking him all these questions about himself when he didn’t even know my name.
“Uhhh… my name is Kate, Kate Austin” I said, trying to give my best smile.
“Yeah, and you already know my name, Max” he said, beating my smile effortlessly.

*CRASH* (only I can hear)

I turned around and saw that no one was looking the way the sound came from. I assumed that it was one of the feelings I get when something bad happens. Although I have no powers, I am very sensitive, so I can hear things very well, but that is not special, since there are many people in this world that are sensitive. My sensitivity can be very helpful at times, but also very annoying. I mean right now I can tell them that something is coming, but I can’t do anything about it. Also I do not like it when people call me sensitive.
“Something is coming everyone! Be ready!!!” I screamed at the top of my lungs.
Everyone did as I said because they knew that I was sensitive. My mother and some of my cousins came over to me so that had some protection.
Max got up, and at first he did not realize the people that came over to protect me, but when he did, his face suddenly shifted to a confused one.
“I’m not like you guys, I have no powers” I said, answering all the questions that were running through his mind.

*CRASH*

The sound came again and this time everyone heard it. More people came in front of me. At situations like this, all I can do is sit still, and fear for my family’s life. Fear. Loneliness. Helplessness. That was all I could think about. I closed my eyes and wished for my family’s safety.
Every time this happens, I’m always stuck doing nothing. I always have to be protected. Just once, I wish I could go out there and help all the people that I love, but unfortunately, god did not want me to, that is why he left me with nothing.
I gave a sigh and looked up at my mother. She was staring at something that amazed her greatly. I followed my mother’s gaze that eventually led to Max. My eyes widen at the fact that there was a large, bright light surrounding him. After a few seconds, a sword materialized out of nothing. After he swung the sword once, the evil presence in the room was gone.
“It’s gone” I said, still in shock.
I was still putting together what I had just seen, sure my family has powers, but I have never seen someone who was surrounded by a powerful, bright beam and the have a weapon appear out of nowhere. The most I ever saw from my family was telepathy and super strength… After just a few seconds, whispers started around the room. My uncle then walked onto the stage and tapped on the microphone.
“May I have everyone’s attention please.” He said. Everyone quiet down immediately to hear what was going on with the new kid.
“Just now, you have witnessed out newest member’s powers. He is the most powerful out of all of us, and will someday take over for the position of the leader in the ‘protectors’, I hope that you will make him feel at home.” My uncle took one last glance at Max and walked off the stage.
At the corner of my eye, I could see Max smiling.
“There goes my secret” I heard, although I was very sure that he was talking to himself.

*Chapter 4*
Getting to Know Each Other


Max started to walk over to me, while being follower by many curious eyes. I couldn’t help myself but blush, with all the attention and all.
“Hey, I would have never guessed that you had no powers, I thought you were very powerful, since you were the once who introduced me…” he said staring into my eyes, ignoring all the eyes that were on him.
“Yeah, she’s different from us, and as I said, she is special.” I turned around and remembered that my mom was there. My cousins were also there, giggling.
“So Katie, are you not going to introduce us to him?” my closest cousin, Chrissy came over and asked, while she had her “flirt” face on.
I shook my head and sighed. It is so like Chrissy to be flirting with the first cute guy she sees. I turned around to see Max’s reaction. Chrissy was really pretty, so I wouldn’t be too surprised if he fell for her. It hurt to admit it, but I knew it was true.
Max smiled and walked forward to Chrissy.
“Well, I believe you already know me, why not tell you again, hi, I’m Max.” he said.
“Hmm, yes, and I’m Kate’s cousin, Chrissy” she said, while playing with her hair.
Yuck Chrissy, stop doing that, I swear one day I’m going to puke.” I turned around to where my other cousin, Mike was standing.
I couldn’t help but giggle. Mike always made me laugh for some reason.
“I believe you’ll introduce me” Mike said.
“I believe I will” I turned to face Max.
“This is my other cousin, Mike. He is my Mom’s, brother’s son, and well, you already know Chrissy, she’s my dad’s, brother’s daughter.” I stumbled when I mentioned my father, but I doubt anyone noticed.
Max walked over to Mike to shake his hand. I stood there for a moment and then I remembered that I had to talk to my uncles, and say a last farewell to my grandpa.
“Well, you guys get to know each other, I’ll be right back.” I smiled and walked away.
My uncles and my grandfather were in front of the stage talking. I went over and gave my grandfather a big hug.
“I’ll miss you a lot when you’re gone” I smiled.
“I’ll miss you too.” He answered
I stood that, hugging my grandfather. Thinking about him leaving me makes my heart ache. I had no idea if he’s going to be safe or not and I also have no idea why he is leaving. I didn’t want him to leave, I loved him so much.
“So Kate, are you okay? Did the monsters hurt you?” Chrissy’s dad asked.
“No, actually, I have something to tell you about the monster that appeared today...” I said the words slowly.
My uncles all looked at me, eager to know what I had to tell them.
Today, when that 'thing' came, it seemed a bit more powerful than the other monster that came last time.... it seems that each time, they become more powerful." i said, pausing to see if they had anything to say, they didn't.
"I know that you have found someone that is stronger than us, Max, but soon their powers will eventually advance father than his." I paused and looked at them.
“How much longer do you think until their powers go beyond ours?” Chrissy’s father asked.
“I do not know for sure, but if Max has reached his limit already, I say we have about…” I thought for a minute, calculating what I had.
“4 months, the most” I was pretty confident about my answer.
I had always been good in school, maybe it is because this was the only thing I could do for my family. Keep my grades up and all that.
“I think we might be able to get a little more from him if we train him.” I looked up, this time it was Mike’s father who spoke.
“If that is so, it will only give us time, what do we do after that?” I asked.
“We just have to keep it up as long as we can.” Chrissy’s father said, as I saw him bite his lower lip.
“Okay, I’ll tell you if something else important comes up.” I said and then left quickly,
I could feel that they needed to talk… without me. I wondered about what was going to happen when the… things… grow to be more powerful than our strongest member.
“Hey” I heard someone say.
My eyes followed the voice, but my mind didn’t. I was still in deep thought and didn’t answer.
“Hey,” I managed to say after I finally snapped out.
“Are you okay?” he asked.
I saw worry lines appear on his face. I guess my thinking face look more like a sick one to him instead.
“Yeah, I was just thinking about something” I said, embarrassed.
“Hmm… I see.” He answered.
I took a glance behind him and saw that some of my other cousins had gathered up their strength and approached Max. I waved at Robby, who was my mom’s sister’s son and then at Anna, who was Robby’s younger sister. Then, I waved at Ricardo, Chrissy’s little brother.
“Hey Ricardo, Robby, Anna” I said as approached them.
They all said welcomed me, and then I turned back to Max.
“I see you’re fitting in nicely” I said and smiled.
“Yeah, I guess” he shrugged.
I was about to say something, but then I got interrupted by my uncle, tapping the microphone once again. I looked up and so did everyone else.
“Everyone, today we are going to have a night meeting. Everyone knows what to do” he nodded and got off the stage.

Next chapter is called "Sleep Over"
