Edge of Thorns 3 - Pt 33Part 33
I came here to ask; I should ask.
Nathan swallowed so loudly, he was sure the angel heard it, but he turned to face Gabriel and did his best to smile, despite what he was about to do. "It's about Alton. He's... well, to say he's worried about the Sins is a bit of an understatement. He came over for lunch today and practically broke down in my kitchen." He rubbed the back of his head. "Is it normal for the Devil to be this paranoid? I mean, because knowing that's who he is makes it all even weirder."
"It's unusual for Lumiel, yes, to not have a handle on things." Gabriel motioned for him to take a seat again, waiting until he moved to an armchair across from him. "If it weren't for seeing first hand what the sisters have done to him, I would suspect he trying to gain your sympathy through his usual, deceptive means." The corner of his mouth quirked up. "And even if he is that frightened, it's still in his nature to exaggerate."
"I don't think he was exaggera

"You and me both."
Snow, meanwhile, was already on it. She pulled a Polaroid camera from her pack, but couldn't stop her hands from shaking. Try as she might, without the distraction of combat, the monstrous visage she'd seen of Alistair crept its way to the front of her mind again, making it near impossible for her to steady her hands l

Gabriel is my guardian, and he's moved in front of me for a reason. I won't step up, but I won't abandon him.
He didn't realize it, but Nathan mirrored his guardian's determined expression, curling his own hands into fists. He'd already learned his lesson when it came to getting between two quarreling angels, but he shifted his stance, firmly planting his feet on the ground, ready to defend if he had to. Raphael seemed vastly amused by this.
"Do you see your charge?" he asked with a chuckle. "No wonder you like him; most humans would have scurried off by now." His gaze shifted to the writer. "Do you want to watch us, Karol? Has your curiosity been piqued, or are you jealous? You are, after all, lacking in some areas..."
"At least consideration for others isn't one of them," Nathan shot back, meeting his gaze. To his surprise, the angel immediately broke it and stepped back, his mouth falling open in shock.
"You... would dare to lock eyes with me? You are ei
