Her question did not surprise the young girl, but rather amused her, and set her on a long train of thoughts. Alise did not know for sure, but she had a feeling she was something similar to the birds that flew in the sky. Only beings who were once in the sky could fall from it, that was her thought. She also felt a strange blood running through her, as if hot and slightly magical, but she did not have any magic running through her. Her lack of control to a certain element was the proof of that. Nor did she have any special features that would discern her as anything other than human, but she knew for a fact that she was not one. "I am... not human," was her answer, with slight hesitation and uncertainty.

It was unusual, she thought,
For the child to know she was not human,
But not what she truly was.
There was nothing visible on the child,
To tell of her blood.
Though perhaps, that was the proof.
She felt something familiar about this child.
Perhaps...
"Child, will you show me your back?
You may yet possess a part of your past."

She had a suspicion,
But did not know what it would mean.
Though first, she supposed,
The child would have to agree.

A puzzled expression graced the girl's fine features. Her back? Now that was a request she didn't hear often, if at all. Though she wondered what the guardian's thoughts were, she nodded gently, and turned around. It truly was a strange request, one Alise was not sure would give any sort of hint. There was nothing on her back, in fact her skin had been flawless all over, but maybe that was exactly what the other wanted to know. Gracefully she scooped up her hair, holding it well above her head as she laid in wait.

She walked toward the child,
Though in truth, she seemed to float.
When she was close to the child,
She unfolded her hands and gently,
Touched the child's back,
Just between her shoulders.
The skin beneath her touch was flawless,
As though it had not yet been touched.
But what she sought lied beneath,
With the muscle and the bone.
After a few short moments,
She felt something odd.
"If you would,
Please stretch your arms,
Your back, and shoulders."

If the child complied, her suspicion,
Would be proven, or relieved.

It was a strange tingling sensation which sent a light shiver through her, a touch so gentle she would not have felt it if she had not been expecting it. Alise wondered what the other saw in her, for she knew that there was nothing to differentiate her from an average human. And yet she hoped that she would indeed find something, to set her on a path she had strayed from. Complying with the request, the girl let her hair go, stretching her arms out to the sides. The gesture felt strange, as if she was a bird stretching its wings about to take. This was not the case however.

She drew in a breath,
As the child raised her arms.
So her suspicion was true,
Her fears correct.
"Thank you, child.
I know now what you are."

She drew back her hand,
And returned it to the other.
How could she tell this child,
Of what she had found?
She had to tell her,
This was true,
But how best to do it?

Alise dropped her arms almost instantly and spun back around, her soft pastel eyes wide with the new information. She knew something? How could it have been that easy? After so many countless days of wandering herself with no avail, and yet the very moment the other touched her. Perhaps she had been looking in the wrong place all this time. Perhaps she had been looking for the wrong thing. "What am I?" she asked softly. A part of her felt almost afraid of what she would say, but another part of her wanted to know no matter what circumstances would daunt her.

Child, you are an angel.
But your wings..."

Beneath the skin of the child's back,
Lied the muscles and bones,
That only angels had.
The muscles and bones,
To which her wings belonged.
She now considered the child fortunate,
To have forgotten her past.
She did not know what,
Was in the child's past,
Be it injury or punishment.
For an angel, losing one's wings,
Was akin to losing a part of one's soul.
This child may have lost her wings,
And her memories,
But she had been spared the pain,
Of truly feeling the former loss.
"I am so sorry, child."

An angel? For some reason it made odd sense to her, as if she always knew but never wanted to remember. She wondered why such a detail was hidden away in her mind, and wondered also the same whether or not her memories were still present and simply unreachable. Alise titled her head to the sky, it all made sense to her now. Never mind the stories of fallen angels that grandparents would tell to their children, she truly was one; an angel without wings. "Sorry?" Her voice sparked with curiosity as her eyes slowly made their way down form the clouds and to the guardian. "Why are you sorry?" Alise did not understand such feelings, all this meant to her was that she was a step closer to the truth, whatever it may be.

She did not know,
If the child's words,
Eased her sorrow for this child,
Or made it worse still.
"Something must have happened,
For you to be how you are.
Something horrid, for your memories,
And your wings to both be lost.
Such things should never happen."

The child seemed as though,
She truly did not care.
Perhaps that was best,
For what was there,
To be gained from sorrow?

Alise lowered her eyes as the guardian spoke. She knew in the back of her mind that there had to have been something, something she had done perhaps, for this to be her fate. The girl did not care of unpleasant memories or horrors filling her mind as she searched for her path, only for there to be a path. Maybe, she thought with sad eyes, her path had already been destroyed. In that case, then she did not know what she was searching for. But her past was such a mystery to the girl that she had to continue, even if it meant a sad ending for her. "What do you think," she paused, wallowing in her thoughts for a moment longer. "Happened to me?" Perhaps the almighty guardian would be able to shed some light on her.

She shook her head solemnly.
"I do not know,
But your condition is not reached,
Without facing a horrible accident,
Or as punishment,
For a truly heinous crime."

This child had a difficult past,
this she knew.
She knew not what made it so,
However.
"I know not which,
Rests in your past.
The most obvious way,
Is to find your old home.
Though such an action comes,
With great risk.
If you truly were banished,
You would not be,
Welcomed kindly.
Or,
You could live your new life,
As it is now.
You may never find your past,
But life may just surprise you.

She could not make,
This child's choice,
Only help her see her paths.

At the guardian's words, her eyes seemed to light up with a curious kind of spark. A crime... did that sound like something she'd do? Of course she wouldn't know the answer to that without her memories, but perhaps if she thought hard enough she would remember something. "Punishment does sound more exciting than an accident," she mused, her polite tone of voice breaking along with her slight misfortune. Alise tilted her head, her hair falling over her shoulder as she heard the proposition from her. The answer was obvious to her, how could she give up without anything in her mind, she was not that type of person. "I don't want to live a mystery all my life."

Her concern for the child grew.
Did she truly think,
Her past had been enjoyable?
If she knew the pain,
Such punishment caused,
She would not be so pleased.
"Seek out your kin.
They will hold the answers you seek,
Be they happy or sad."

If the child had the gift of air,
She could teach her to fly again.
But she could not sense it within her.

The guardian did not seem amused by her, which brought a small smile to her lips. Alise was not one to please people, though tried her best to not upset them. Though at the moment she was thankful to the other, for giving her insight into her life. So she had been an angel... wasn't the woman standing right in front of her also one? Alise tilted her head again, a light kind of grin capturing her lips. "Where can I find these... kin of mine?" She wanted to infer, just in case she was set onto the wrong path again.
