Book of Ivory Chapter 1Freemont Street, Las VegasBook of Ivory Chapter 1 by TFfan1
The street buzzed with life. Under the massive screen canopy, hundreds of people milled around, admiring the lights or the entertainers. Two figures walked down the street, one in a gray hoodie, the other a grey t-shirt with rainbow striped undershirt.
“Arael, don’t eat that.”
The angel turned away from the vendor, frowning. “Why not?”
Adriel folded his arms. “All that butter and salt, it’s bad for you.”
“But we’re angels! We don’t get sick. Please?” She looked at him pleadingly with big, turquoise eyes.
Adriel stared back with cold silver eyes. “No. We’re angels used to an all manna diet. Remember the last time you ate something like that?”
Arael rubbed her stomach. “Oh, never mind.”
Adriel sighed and fished a wrapped-up bun from his pocket and handed it to her. “Here. It’s only got a little cinnamon on it. You should be fine.

The hotel room was dark save for the lamp Adriel used for reading, the sun only beginning the creep into the sky. Arael slept in the bed on the other side of the room, undisturbed.Book of Ivory Chapter 2 by TFfan1
“You alright?” Adriel offered a glass of water, which Phenex gratefully accepted.
Phenex swallowed and wiped his mouth. “I...think so. It was awful. I had...what do the humans call them?”
Phenex‘s shoulders sagged. “I was lying in a field in Heaven. It was so peaceful,
so...perfect. Then I was falling, and I was in Hell. In there, the air is so hot and dry, it practically forces itself down your throat. I wasn't real, I understand that, but it was just so.. vivid.”
He looked up at Adriel. “What do you dream about?”
Adriel’s face was blank. “I don’t sleep.”
Nightmares and ThunderstormsThe rain had been coming down all night long, rapping out a constant beat on the roof, lulling everyone in the house to sleep, only to have the thunder clap over head around two in the morning. It shook the cabin, making Elizabeth jump awake at the sound, her heart hammering quickly in her throat as she looked around the room in a panic. Her room was nothing but darkness, only lighting up with the sky flashed, letting her make out the silhouette of Kat's sleeping form in the bed next to her's. She took deep gulping breaths, shivering badly as her chest tightened making her wing tremble tautly, her other bare shoulder starting to ache.Nightmares and Thunderstorms by jackofalltrades0097
It hadn't always been like this. She could remember before her accident, storms were just an excuse to go out and be reckless.

She knew she shouldn't have been doing it that night, the weather was s

Bardiel folded his arms and glared right back. He was bald, with a Middle-Eastern complexion. “I kept you from bringing a demon into Heaven, I’m in the position to ask questions, not you.”
He pointed at Phenex, his purple eyes still fixed to Adriel. Adriel’s silver eyes refused to meet them. “He’s repentant, we were bringing him home.”
Bardiel laughed. It was a short, loud, and sharp sound. “You really think he’s sorry for what he’s done? Do you know how many depraved acts he may have committed, and plans to keep committing?”
Adriel gestured to Phenex. “Look at him, does he look like a Prince or Dominion to you? He was just another victim of Lucifer, and he’s sorry.”
“A wolf in sheep’s clothing, Adriel. He’ll
