Short Story - An Angel's Help

Hello readers,


An Angel's Help

"Outside the rain fell like gray sheets over the world. Trees bent, kneeling to the force of the wind. In the distance, a brilliant blue flash of light broke the sky. Moments later the answering rumble of thunder rolled through the air.

I watched the storm through the glass window. My gratitude for the shield provided by my small home increased with the intensity of the storm. Another flash of lighting and the room plunged into darkness. This time the thunder shook the house.

Behind me, I heard the eerie sound of a door creaking open. My blood ran cold. Slowly I turned..."

Slowly I turned to see no shadowy figure. Yet my cat kept on looking around and meowing. I remember learning that cats see not only better but another dimension.

It got me thinking when a flash of light lit the doorway and I heard a voice. I still couldn't really see, but what I saw amazed me. It was wings of an angel.

"Peace be with you, daughter of Eve. You've been a good Muslim, but lately, you went into a dip."

I stood there in shock, how does the angel know. As if it can read my mind he answers, "You know God knows everything. He sent the storm, much bigger, as a sign. And I'm here to let you know that. Pray and I'll send it above."

I do start praying and soon the angel's gone.
