Dalmar and Tundra hovered over the boat on the sea that held Selena and Dennis. Dalmar wrapped his long black cloak around himself, and watched as the dark clouds came closer and closer to the area.
“What should we do, Dalmar?” asked Tundra who sat in a black tarry puddle above the boat.
Dalmar thought Tundra wasn’t too smart if he didn’t know the answer to that one. “If Selena dies without having a relationship with God, then... God loses her... So, we assist her in staying far away from God. What do you think we do, goof?” Dalmar popped the other demon on top of the head.
“OWW!” Tundra glared at the dark one. Just because he was in charge didn’t give him the right to go smacking on him.
The sea was rising higher and higher, and the boat began to bounce from the high waves. And the demons watched their prey hoping they wouldn’t pray...to the Living God for His Help. If only they don’t...
Selena was frantic. “Dennis, we have to get to shore!” She yelled above the sounds the high wind was making and the roar of the ocean waves splashing into the boat.
Wind threatened to pull Dennis’ hands off the steering wheel. “I knowww! I’m trying to turn the boat toward shore. These waves aren’t making it easy. If you have a God, Selena, I suggest you pray. We may not make it.”
“God??? God doesn’t care about me! If he did, he wouldn’t have let this happen! Just get us to shore!” Grabbing the side of the boat, she could feel her clothes pulling at her from the whipping wind. Looking at the sky, Selena noticed it had grown dark. There was a hurricane reported for their area. It was stupid they had gone on the water. She knew better. Why had she wanted to go out on the boat, knowing it could come? She thought she had time and it would be later before the weather turned bad. Were they going to die??
Dennis slowly flipped the boat around, barely keeping them from tipping over, and pointed it toward shore. Shore was a mile away.
They could see the shore through their wind blown hair, the boat bobbing up and down with the crashing waves.
The angels, Rosewood, and ExplodingLight flew next to the boat where Selena stood. ExplodingLight whispered in Selena’s thoughts, “Call on Jesus for help. He will help you. Call on your covenant. Come back to your God, Selena.”
Selena brushed the thoughts out of her mind. ‘God doesn’t care about me. He should have told me to not come,’ she thought.
Rosewood whispered to her, “God did tell you not to come...”
Looking out into the sea, Selena didn’t hear the whisper of the angel.
“Yeah, God doesn’t care about her.” Tundra whined.
Rosewood gave the demon a look...
Cringing from that look, Tundra turned his eyes away. The light from the angels was giving him a headache anyway.
The hurricane came closer and closer to the little boat with a roof. The two angels joined forces, holding arms tightly, causing the brunt of the hurricane that would smash the boat to bits to bounce off of the angels and pass over the boat. The boat was swept to shore from the force of the wind pushing it. Soon, the nose rode on the sand.
The demons were appalled. “Hey, you cant’ do that! That wasn’t legal!” Dalmar accused the angels.
Neither angel defended themselves. What they had done, they had permission from Heaven to do. They need not defend themselves to dark ones.
Jumping out of the boat, Selena and Dennis tied the boat to the rocks. Running for shelter, Selena took off as fast as she could, fighting the wind against her body as it threatened to knock her to the ground. Dennis was beside her. He kept tripping and falling, and picking himself up. The wind was strong and kept slamming into them. Finally, they found a barn. Gripping the door of the barn, Dennis scarcely was able to open it to let Selena in. Squeezing into the door way himself, the two then pulled the door shut together, securing it. Falling to the floor, Selena panted with relief. She wondered if God had helped her, or if it was merely a coincidence that the hurricane passed over them like that. Whatever the reason she was alive, and safe.
Suddenly, the barn shook, and things on the shelves and walls began to fall to the floor. Selena screamed and covered her head with her arms. Crawling, she and Dennis found a table to hide under. Selena hoped there was nothing sharp flying around in there.
They stayed there until the barn stopped shaking, and the wind stopped howling.
