Fallen Angel ~ Part 3
"It cannot be done," said Diamond. "I would have to right the wrong tenfold and I have no idea what I've done wrong."
"Is it common for a fallen angel to not recall his deed?" asked April.
Diamond shook his head. "No, we are usually given a second chance. No one is unforgivable."
April cocked her head. "Well, what's the last thing you remember then?"
"I was at a meeting of the angels. We were discussing letting others join the Angel League. I have always been a strong proponent of letting others in Heaven join the Angel League. There are many who are worthy and with the growing Earthly population we could use the help," explained Diamond.
"Sounds like a worthy cause," said April, "No reason to fall. What happened next?"
"Thunder gave his reasons against it." Diamond's lip curled. "He has no right being an angel. His heart is as black as my feather. But he has the ear of many an angel." Diamond smirked. "But not enough angels, I won the vote." The smirk faded. "That's the last thing I remember before waking up here."
A crunch of branches caught their attention, Diamond pulled April behind him and expanded his wings, shielding her.
"Who goes there?" he bellowed.
"Diamond?" sang a feminine voice from the bushes. "Is that you?"
"Star?" Diamond lowered his wings and rushed to help the delicate angel through the bushes. "What are you doing here?"
"I don't know," she said. "The last thing I remember is voting with you in order to let others join the Angel League. Then I woke up here, with this."
She pointed to a single black feather embedded in her pristine white wings.
April ran to Star's side and examined the feather.
"I think I know what's going on here," she said to Diamond and Star.
At that moment two more angels came into the clearing.
"Comet, Sapphire what are you doing here?" asked Diamond.
"We don't know," said Comet. "But we both have the black feather."
"Don't you see?" asked April. "It's Thunder. He has done something to cause all of you to fall. I don't think he took losing the vote very well."
