I want to write a story about an Angel of Death. A character whose sole purpose is to destroy those deemed too evil and twisted to continue polluting the Earth by god. And maybe she gets tired of it. Maybe she gets depressed just knowing the scum of the earth and using her talents only to kill. So god gives her a vacation. But she’s too depressed to see any good in the world still, it seems like all the bad pops out at her and she envisions the day of reckoning when she’ll have to take every impure life and gets MORE depressed because it seems then she will take all 7 billion lives. So god reassigns her for a bit. Sends her to be a guardian angel for a chubby little girl with big dark eyes. And at first the angel doesn’t know why, has dark visions that her charge needs an angel because her life will be hard and brutal, full of abuse and heartache.
But the angel learns love in that household, watching the little girl’s parents tender hearts, how they struggle to give their child the best but never neglect her for work or money. She learns joy in that house, because her charge is full of it. The smallest things delight her, from an extra helping of dessert to a butterfly resting on the windowsill. The angel learns bravery in that house. Her little girl is determined and inquisitive, and the angel watched her fall and scrape her knees, heart in her throat and ready to swoop, but her little girl always bounces up, bravely brushing away unshed tears to follow after the bigger kids.
There is heartache, and there are injustices. And the angel lays her wings around the girl when she cries for the death of her cat, or when the boy she likes at school calls her fat. And deep in her destroyer heart she wants to cut down the people who hurt her little girl, but she learns in that house the good outweighs the bad sometimes. And the bad can build a stronger person sometimes.
Years pass, and the angel is called back to her true duty. She frets about leaving her little girl - not little at all anymore - to fend for herself in the world she knows can be so cruel. And god asks her what she learned. And the angel says she leaned there is goodness and rightness in the world, there is joy and love and tender hearts, but it must be protected. And god smiles and says “exactly” and the angel realizes to be the Destroyer is not a wicked and dark purpose. It is a way to clear the path for those who chose a kinder lifestyle.
And she happily goes on ridding the world, carrying the thought of her little girl in her heart, and all the little girls in the world. The end.
