Edge of Thorns - Pt 33Part 33
It's been a while since my so-called dabbling into the occult, but I think I've got this figured out...
The writer held his chin, looking at where Alton had already placed the candles. "Is that green one set at the north?" After the angel nodded, he felt more at ease. "Okay, good. You go stand there, Alton."
"Why?" Avery asked. "If you don't mind my curiosity."
"Not at all," Nathan assured him, picking up the blue candle and switching it with the yellow one across from it, careful not to step into the circle. "Hopefully, I'm remembering this correctly, but north is associated with the element of earth, which is associated with the color green, and since Alton is arguably the most down-to-earth person here, it was the only place it made sense for him to stand."
The shopkeeper chuckled, and Nathan ignored the knowing smirk that spread across the other man's lips.
"Gabriel, you stand over there," he continued. "By the blue candle." The other man giggled and bounced h

I definitely need to tell Alton, but it probably isn't safe to try and get Avery there. I'll summon him.

He guided him into the bathroom to grab a towel and toss it to him, then grabbed his notebook. Pen in hand, Nathan stared at the page for a moment, still unsure about this invoking thing, but then wrote out Lumiel's signature. "God, I hope this works..."
"It does." Alton stood behind him, casually cleaning his glasses. "Gabr
Stuck The car sputtered and shook as it came to an almost silent stop. The engine had gone silent as the horn beeped loudly through the dark night. The orange gas light blinked mockingly at the woman behind the wheel. It was making fun of her; she knew it was making fun of her. Grabbing the black cellular phone on the passenger seat, she looked at it with full intention of calling somebody to come help her.
“Oh, what the hell?!”
The “no service” sign was mocking her at the same exact time. The horn beeped loudly as she slammed her head against it once again. The day was out to get her in general. She had arrived at all her classes late, and her son was sick with the flu. The babysitter was able to watch him as she went to her late night classes. Giving a heavy sigh, she lifted her head off the wheel to look out the window. Drops of water pooled on the windshield as rain started to fall in a pitter-patter pattern. She didn’t quite understand the message th
