Wings of Love : Part 3, Yearning and Ignorance
Isabella flew towards the sinking car with the intention of helping only to be deterred by the presence of three death angels, who rudely gestured her to back off. That meant that the car was to become the watery grave for the mother and the two children. How tragic!
That also meant that she was to help Tom who by now had jumped into the deep creek to endeavor a heroic rescue of his wife and kids. It would have helped if he had called 911 instead.
She dive in and watch Tom try unsuccessfully to open the locked car doors. The sight was pathetic with his wife now trying hard to escape the water, which was entering and suffocating both the kids and her. Isabella sighed in despair as the death angels forbid her to help him rescue them.
After several failed attempts, Tom swam frantically ashore to call rescue squad. He retrieved the phone and noticed due to the force with which he had thrown it away, it had become a useless chunk of metal.
A passing car slows down at his request and the driver immediately calls 911 before jumping in together with Tom into the creek.
The rescue team arrives ten minutes later and retrieves the lifeless bodies of the three victims. The detectives question Tom, whose incoherent answers only confuse them further. Isabella places her hands on his shoulders making Tom to calm down enough to narrate the incident.
“It is my fault. I should have listened. My poor children…What sort of father am I?” wail Tom sinking onto the floor and fall unconscious with the palpable anguish and fatigue he had undergone.
That night was terrible for Tom and Isabella tries to ease his trauma by making him fall into a deep slumber, all the while deeply thinking how she could help Tom further.
His team of employees, including his manager had flown in and they were adept in managing his affairs. However, what of his heart? His heart refused to heal. Every hour he woke up crying about his loss. Isabella had to whisper all the calming spells repeatedly to pacify him.
Throughout the funeral and the entire week, Tom was inconsolable. Nights brought in nightmares and poor Isabella was soon at the end of her wits, watching Tom suffer. She could not watch him pine away in front of her. If only she could take away the bad memories.
She could, couldn’t she?!! She had learnt that. Nevertheless, performing the charm without permission was forbidden. Archangel Uriel had specifically instructed her to stick to the rules.
A week watching Tom suffer awakened the asinine rebel in her and she decided to go with her intuition.
Didn’t God, their father, instruct angels through intuition?
With Tom’s head in her lap, she performed the special charm and very soon, every memory of his wife and kids was wiped out from his brain.
She didn't care about the punishment that she had to face. The calm sleeping face of Tom was enough to help her brave any severe punishment.
