Sometimes I wish Chloe didn't talk so much. The Angel has a mouth. Yes, it's David -- Miss Parker's Angel. I'm guessing Chloe's introduced me, right? Yea, I must be right. I am right. Damn. Here goes my charge. Yes, she's my one and only as well. I don't know what the Big Guy has with these two... But it seems that they *must* be under *constant* supervision. Ever notice how stubborn she can be? Where does she get it?Not from me.(((Right.)))
_Parrrkeerr._ Please don't do this to yourself...
"Shut up, all right. Shut up. I can do this... I have before, I can again..." She speaks out loud, pulling herself out of bed after her alarm goes off at 6:30.
Take this day. Take it. Give yourself a break....
"Me taking a break won't help the hunt at all."
You'll be refreshed and--- "Just shut up, okay?!" She growls as she pulls on her shirt.
I'm shutting up now. Nothing for me to do. She won't listen to me prattle on and on about the same thing every single day. Chloe thinks I don't care about what she does. That I let her do whatever she wants.
Wrong. Try again. I care a lot about Parker. More than I should. I become... Hell I--- Oops. Sorry, Big Guy._Heaven_ knows I get too involved in what happens with her. Chloe and I are very alike -- And yet, totally different. Yes, I do slip. I may an angel, but I'm not perfect. I have let her fall a couple times, but what Catherine has instilled in this woman has never let her stay down for long.
Catherine. Catherine is above Angel Status I believe. Chloe should know. I would talk to Quirien-- Catherine's Old Angel--- But, I don't know where she is now... So many charges, so many Angels.
Anyways, Catherine was -- and still is--- a huge part of Parker's life. She often turns to her in times of need, and yes, Big Guy, this is against the rules... And don't tell Chloe -- Don't want her to think I'm getting soft on everyone...... But I often do get jealous.
I saved Parker's butt too many times to count.
Dealing with Death is like dealing with your dentist.Not only is he cold, rude, obnoxious--- And the outcome of any visit is painful.--- but he has the *worst* outfits.
Who ever said Death wore black? Everyone thinks that black and night are bad. (Just like Miss Parker. She isn't the villain, only a victim!) To quote a very smart mortal (Either very brilliant or really lucky), 'Never Fear The Night, only fear what's in it.'
Death changes... His wardrobe -- Whenever he seems to appears around me -- Which is often (Hey, I spend my following Parker around the Centre)-- is usually day-glow polyester.Gag, gag.
She's climbing into her Porsche. Hold on. Got to tell her to buckle up.
Of course she didn't listen. Did you really think she would?
It's become so annoying... The way she doesn't listen to me. I used to be able to influence whatever she was doing. She would *actually* listen to me. But after Thomas died, she's seemed to have pushed me aside. She doesn't listen any more.
Thomas was truly an Earth Bound Angel. I am surprised that he didn't turn out to be one. He opened up a part of Miss Parker, not even *I* knew was there anymore. And I know her inside and out. Now, I don't usually do this, but I have to agree with Chloe. The girl does have a point. Jarod and Thomas, *WERE* really alike. They both wanted Miss Parker to open up, and if I could, I would have already.
Thomas' Guardian Angel was a very nice guy. His name was Akari and he wanted the same thing that I want for Miss Parker; A life. Miss Parker has no life, she has no love. That's all she really needs; love. Someone who she can trust, and won't go away.
Unlike Thomas and unlike Catherine. I think that would turn her completely around. She needs someone there to lean on, to talk to, to love and to get love back from.
But so far, no one has showed up for her that will stay around for long... Except Jarod.
And I'm still not too sure about him. I don't completely trust the Wonder Boy, for the way he's acted. Can't he see she can't do anything except what her father tells her to? Can't he see that she's been backed into a corner that she can't get out of?
If she doesn't listen to what her father tells her to do, she'll be discarded... Alone into the harsh world. And Miss Parker fears NOTHING, not even death, as much as being alone. That's how she's spent most of her life, and she hates it.
She's going grocery shopping now. I'll get back to you soon.
Things aren't going well. I can't see how anything could go any worse. Julia is stuck in a dilemma. Chloe is on her way with Jarod, and Parker... Parker is using that Gosh Darned intuition of hers. I sometimes wonder where she got that. Am I subconsciously wishing her there? Maybe I am. She could just... Show up... And grab Jarod... And she could leave.
Right. Now whose blind: the charge or the angel? Mr. Parker will never let her go. I should talk to his angel. Her name is Madison. What a bitc-- Okay. Sorry. No curses. Forgot I wasn't human.
Sometimes I wish I were. I would slam everyone's head into the wall. To try and protect Miss Parker. I can't remember... Right now, what I was like when I was human. I don't remember what I looked like. I sometimes wish I did. Was I tall? Handsome? Was I a man that would protect his girlfriend or wife without a second thought? Was I a chivalrous man, or was I like the rest of the men in this miserable world; men who don't give a damn?
Sometimes I wish I could remember.
She's going. Damn it. Chloe's going to blame me. She's going to think that I-- Well, screw her. I didn't tell Parker to go. I don't want Jarod caught. Because if he's caught, then Miss Parker won't be let go. And at least when he's out in the world, she has something to do. She's Safe.
So to speak.
What Chloe doesn't know is how much I really care about Miss Parker, I try as hard as I can to protect her. I really care a lot about her.
I don't know why. I have no bloody idea why, but I guess watching a baby being born, and growing up in front of your eyes, you obviously become attached.
Miss Parker is *NOT* evil, no matter how she may seem at times. She simply is trying to defend herself, She's hurt inside and she doesn't want anyone to notice her weakness. It's like being an injured deer in the wilderness, if any wolf smells your blood -- your done for.Damn she's hitting 60. Damn it, Parker!
"WHAT?!" She hisses.Will you please SLOW DOWN! Take this detour; slow down!
"You don't want me to catch Jarod, do you?"Parker, don't say that. I'm on your side. One hundred Per--
"Bull shit. You're turning on me, aren't you?"Parker, I would never--!!
"Yea, sure, whatever." I'm feeling her sadness. She's angered and mostly sad. She thinks I'm abandoning her too. I would never...Damn it, why'd I do that? Parker I am on your side. I *want* you to catch Jarod. I'm going to help you catch him. Take this turn.
I really don't care what TBA think. I'm not really interfering. I'm just helping her intuition.
Miss Parker's friendship means more to me than anything else, I just wish she felt the same way.
