You better believe it, continued Matthias. Now we are permitted to dress whatever way we see fit mostly to fit the assignment. Once I got my wings caught in a clump of trees. You should have heard me swear. You think I cant swear, huh? Well, Ive been to all kinds of places and met all sorts of people. Ive learned their languages well. You should hear me swear in Bantu. Youve got to be good with languages, you know part of the requirement for getting into angel school.
Angel school? I was surprised. I didnt know you guys had to go to school.
Doesnt everybody go to school? If you want to qualify for whatever you do, youve got to go into training or to some sort of apprentice program. Yep! Angel Academy. Thats where we all earn our wings, ha! Ha! Ha! Couldnt help that.
Hope youre not auditioning for stand-up comedian while youre here. Dont give up your day job, Icountered.
Gideon noticed that I was beginning to wonder whether I should take Matthias seriously,so he said,Matthias actually holds a very important position with in the hierarchy, John. He does have an outlandish sense of humor which, I imagine, even you wouldnt appreciate, but there again, its kept him sane all these eons. Hes on a journey now to the Big City. Thought hed drop by and see me. Hell see Marla at Headquarters in the Big City. Remember G & M Enterprises? World Headquarters in the Big City?
Certainly, I remember your Headquarters. So thats where Marla is. Will you be staying in the City for a while, Matthias?
No, not this time, John, responded Matthias. Very sad case is taking me there. A little girl, Earth years approximately nine or so. Her dad died a few years ago and her mom is an alcoholic. Every few months the mother gets a new boyfriend. Although it wasnt the most pleasant of environments,Christine, thats the little girls name, has always been strong and courageous. But her mom married the latest boyfriend. Now he beats both mother and child and, on a number of occasions, has threatened to burn them alive in their own apartment. Thats the case Im working on. His voice trailed off as if he could feel the little girls pain.
