The angel flew towards the house he had last seen the now human angel at. Gabriel had said it was okay for him to visit, after all. It had been a few weeks. He simply wanted to make sure he was well (and hadn’t been caught).
He alighted on the front step, frowning when he found the lights off. Perhaps Gabriel was at his job? What was he working as now? Some form of… food deliverer?
((Oh really? I didn’t think anyone liked this blog.
Honestly, I had some problems with the initial character creation, and I fixed that, but I just wasn’t doing anything with this blog?
Anyway, thanks for the message! I really didn’t think anyone cared about this blog besides me and two other people :\ it was kind of disheartening.))
Temperance stood straight, almost stiffly so, now taller than the angel beneath him.
Yeah… I’d like that.
Thank you, Uriel.
The Virtue’s stance seems to shift, and the feel of the whole building seemed to darken.
“You’re supposed to be dead.” he said in a cold voice, then suddenly leapt at the the ex-angel, fists heading straight towards the blonde’s chest.
Gabe scrambled backwards as fast as he could from the crazy glowy person who had just hurled himself at the poor pizza boy. He hadn’t killed anyone! He swore that he hadn’t!! He would remember something like that- why couldn’t he remember- he just needed to remember- to remember!!
A strange flash of light came from the pizza boy cowering in the corner, and the Virtue was thrown off.
Temperance lands on his feet with a small growl. So, Gabriel was acting innocent. He no longer cared; it would be justice. He would be Justice. He would finish this whole mess once and for all. Moving quickly, the golden Virtue lunged at Gabriel once again, this time with a little more ferocity.
Gabe backed away with a whimper. No, he was just a simple pizza boy, he hadn’t done anything, why was this person after him and why him why him why him?!
The blonde huddled closer to the wall, hoping for some kind of miracle as the Virtue’s fist rushed toward him and then he was-
Nothing. Nothing happened. Temperance’s fist seemed to stop. Gabriel blinked, then with a sinking realization he noticed why.
He had caught Temperance’s fist. And he- he knew the Virtue’s name. He remembered.
“Temperance.” the blonde angel said tiredly. “Please just leave me alone. I- I am sorry.” he said quietly, holding the Virtue firmly.
The Virtue’s face twisted as the angel grabbed his fist. So Gabriel was back. Good, it would make it that much more satisfying to deliver Justice.
“Not sorry enough.” he growled, a bestial noise that echoed through the whole building. Temperance pulled back, throwing himself against the angel again and again and again and again. He would not fail this time. He wouldn’t. No matter how many times the angel dodged, no matter how many times the angel blocked, no matter what.
No matter what.
A harsh glow surrounded the Virtue as he pounded away at the angel, each blow stronger and more concentrated. He was going to take this angel to justice, there was no question about it.
As strongly as the Virtue hit, Gabriel just as fiercely blocked. He had faced death already; he wasn’t going to die. He didn’t want to die. He- he didn’t want to die! Gabriel stepped back as quickly as he could once he saw the harsh light, however. He recognized that. He knew what it meant.
Gabriel began shaking slightly. He knew exactly what the Virtue was doing, and he was terrified.
Temperance was going to go Seraph Mode on Gabriel, and the angel wouldn’t stand a chance.
-Gabriel shakes his head slowly-
Azrael’s job doesn’t involve goin’ to heaven like mine does. I… I wouldn’t really be an angel, not doin’ my job.
I… just don’ know…
-Gabriel smiled lightly-
Because I love you, dear brother.
I just… wanted everyone to be happy. I wanted everything to be perfect.
But- but it never is, is it? I need to learn that. Here on earth.
Well. I’m not. That should be something at least.
But I don’t. I don’t belong there.
I can’t. I’m sorry Lucifer, I really am. But I can’t go back. Ever.
….They’ll kill me.
