He drew in a deep calming breath and let the early morning fog shroud him in succour and obscurity. No one was about yet at this his favourite time of the day. He enjoyed it even more than the dead of night when he did his best work. Here and now, in the initial hours of the morning there was no need to pretend, no need to hide his true self. He could embrace the feelings and physical traits he worked so hard at concealing and take solace in the anonymity the thick blanket of fog provided. He could glance longingly at the statue of the avenging angel and feel the unmistakable connection click into place. He could close his eyes and relive the rush of adrenaline that took over as he unleashed his mighty sword and called the sinners for their judgement. He had justice and righteousness on his side yet he still had to keep to the shadows and show the world a carefree fa├žade. Hide amongst the mortals and deny who and what he was. One day soon the time would come when he could reveal his true nature and take his place with his fellow archangels.

Fierce, poetic, ominous all draped in such beautifully crafted prose. Splendid, Venus.:) xo

You have the makings of a terrific story! I want to know all about him. I felt his loneliness and desire.

Kharisma Rhayne said...

This is great and has tons of potential ☺ Love it

Brilliant. Loved the pic and you used it excellently

Naomi said...

Wow, amazing teaser. I loved it. Please say you'll continue the story

ER Pierce said...

Cool post, Venus. I'd like to learn more about this man who wants to become an Archangel. Very Touching.

Lee Brazil said...

Wow! Well done! I want to know more. Is he a deluded serial killer or a an angle in reality? Very intriguing with lots of possibilities!

gemma parkes said...

Beautifully written, poignant and tense, l loved it.

Bonni S. said...

Dianne is right. This would be a fantabulous story. It's always a pleasure to read your posts.

Author Cyril J. Michael said...

Terrific Teaser!

Molly Synthia said...

Very nice! Quite enjoyed the concept, and I could almost see him wielding the sword! Excellent job.

Sherry Palmer said...

That was wonderful to read and makes me want to know more about his life and his story.

Benjamin Tiberius Russell said...

It must be extremely painful for him to be forced to hide among us hopelessly flawed mortals. A few days hanging around with some us and I bet he's itching to pick up his sword and smite somebody, anybody. Excellent Venus - well done.

Cassandre Dayne said...

What a different piece. There is something so very poignant about the way you've used the words in conjunction with the gritty yet oh so beautiful picture. I loved this one.
