X is for Xanadu and a Tragedy: Wings of Love Part Two

Read the Part One of the story here.

Wings of Love: Part Two, Xanadu and a Tragedy

“Isabella, I am sending you to earth on a mission, immediately. Go down to the creek there and wait. Something is about to happen that require the presence of angels. This time I am giving you no specific instructions. Just take care that you stick to the rules,” said Archangel Uriel and then dismissed Isabella to speak to the next Angel whom he had summoned.

Isabella flew to the place where the Archangel had directed her.  Seating herself comfortably on the huge signpost, over the almost deserted road, she viewed the place with a smile on her face.

The ocean creek had the harbor on the side opposite to where she sat. It was a Xanadu,  a great place of idyllic beauty.

With the calm waves lashing lovingly onto the bank, the passersby could take in the beauty of the creek and the magnificent line of skyscrapers on the other side of the creek. A side- road led directly to where the boats harbored to enable the offloading of small leisure boats from trucks.

“Was a flash-flood about to occur or something on the scale of a Tsunami or a Tornado?”Isabella thought aloud, looking out patiently for signs of trouble. There was not even a single boat or human being anywhere near as it was just a few minutes past noon and it was scorching hot everywhere.

Minutes later, a car slowed down and stopped, near to where she sat invisible to all creatures on earth.

“You never have time for me or kids. You are married to your job and that wretched phone of yours. You read scripts on it or you talk to your producers, directors, manager and god alone knows who else, all the time,” shouted the woman in the car as the driver opened the door to get off the car obviously to attend the call in peace.

“We will talk Teresa, just a minute. Let me attend this call. I’ll be right back,” says the man and walks away from the car to avoid the hollering that was continuing from inside the car. Isabella gasp and her heart skip a few beats as she finally recognize the driver. Tom Grande.

“Can’t he listen to her? Oh God…isn't it time you taught him a lesson or two? I guess, It is time to snatch that idiotic phone again” mumbled Isabella looking heaven wards and then hurried towards Tom, when the sound of screeching tires and a splash divert her attention away from him.

His angry wife had taken control of the car and had driven straight into the creek. The car was now slowly sinking into the sea.

“NO..,”With a tortured cry, Tom raced towards the creek ready to jump into the deep watercourse.

This is a short story told in four parts. It had begun as a post for W but became a bit too long. So I decided to split and post it for the next three posts. :)
