So, this was just a story I thought of. It's continuing from the end of Silence. I'm not a professional, or anything, but I hope you guys like it :)

Disclaimer: I own nothing, Becca Fitzpatrick does.

The sun was shining brightly, and it was one of those perfect cloudless-blue days. The grass was lazily swaying, tickling my legs every few minutes. It was a gorgeous day. But that wasn't why I was so happy. The reason for that was because I was planning on spending a normal day with my boyfriend. Or at least as normal as you could get when your boyfriend was a fallen angel, his girlfriend was Nephilim and they were both sworn enemies. But hey, life isn't perfect. I took out my Physics textbook and started memorising formulas that I would need to know for the test next week. Spending a perfect day revising was definitely not my idea of fun, but for the past 2 weeks I had only just managed to scrape passes with straight C's – because nearly all of my free time had been taken leading the Nephilim army.

I bent my head over the textbook and started going over the formulas. I heard Patch's breath tickle my ear and tried not to get distracted.

"I can think of a billion other things we could be doing apart from studying" he whispered against me, kissing my neck. "Remind me again why we're doing that?"

"Because," I said "this was the only way my mom would let me and you out of the house alone, uncensored. And for once, I do actually want to do what my mom thinks I'm doing."

"But that's boring. You know, I can see why you don't have much of a social life"

I was about to answer him when I heard the phone ringing. I flipped it open and saw Vee's Caller ID. I pressed answer.

"Vee, is this important? Because I'm kinda –"

"Okay babe, so I'm thinking you and me go shopping, because I need some serious shopping therapy"

"Vee, I'm kind of busy"

"Doing what?"


"Excuse moi? Since when did my best friend choose studying over shopping?"

"Since she's been getting C's for the past two weeks"

"Babe, if I got C's in my exams, my mom would be proud"

"Sorry Vee." I apologised "It's just that I really need to do this. Why don't we shop next weekend?" I suggested

"Fine" she huffed "but next weekend you are not pulling out on me again."

She cut the call.

For the next couple of hours or so, I studied as best as I could, and then decided to reward myself with some free time with Patch.

"So." Patch said "How's the leading going on with the Nephilim?"

I curled up against Patch on the sofa and sighed. "Okay, I guess. I mean, so far Scott and his two other Nephil friends are the only ones who are actually on my side. The others are not so happy I've quelled the uprising."

"Want me to do something about that?"

I gave a half smile at him. "Thanks, but I don't really need them to hate you as more than they already do. Most of them still hate that we're together -both Nephilim and fallen angels."

A few minutes passed before Patch broke the silence.

"Listen, Angel, there's something I need to tell you."

I braced myself. "Okay?"

He took a deep breath. "Nora...because I was the one who brought Hank to his death...the fallen angels have made me leader." He looked deep into my eyes.

"No..." I whispered "but...but that means..."

He nodded, and I could see deep agonizing pain in his eyes. That meant that me and Patch would be going against each other.

Patch...the person who was most important to me. The person who had saved me endlessly from life-or-death situations. The person who knew me, inside and out. The person who I knew loved me, and the person I loved.

We would have to battle it out. There were no two ways about it. And there was nothing I could do.

Patch pushed the hair out of my eyes and kissed my forehead gently.

"I promise you, Angel" he said with conviction. "We will find a way through this."

Soo...what did you guys think? Did you love it? hate it? like it? Please rate and review, I want to know how to improve - I am open to constructive criticism.
