Touched by an Angel
Karone's Story
By Elisabeth Anne

Well I can't really think of a summary. But it's about a girl named Karone. She feels she's all alone and her best friend is her sister. But then the day after school let's out, Karone goes to find a job. The same day something happens to her sister. Please read and find out.

Well you know how this goes. Touched By an Angel, Tess, Monica and Andrew don't belong to me. This is my first Touched by an Angel story. I just sat down and started typing and this is what I came up with. I didn't know what was going to happen or how this was going to turn out, I just typed whatever came to my mind. Well hope you like it; I thought it was wonderful. Post to Creative Connection.

Tess, Monica and Andrew were on an assignment in Columbia, Missouri. Tess stopped in front of a Middle school. "What are we doing here, Tess?" Monica asked from the passenger's seat. "Well we're here on an assignment. Do you see that girl over there?" Tess asked. "I see a lot of girls over there." Andrew said from that back seat. "The one with the strawberry blonde hair walking alone." Tess told them. Andrew and Monica looked over and saw a girl with strawberry blonde hair about 14 years old."Yes. Is she my assignment?" Monica asked. "Yes." Tess answered. "She looks kind of sad. Why is she alone? Doesn't she have any friends?" Monica asked. "She doesn't think she has any friends. She thinks all of the kids tease her." Tess replied. "Why does she think that?" Andrew asked from the back seat. "Because a lot of the kids do tease her. They make her cry." Tess answered. "Why are we here? What is her name?" Monica asked. "Her name is Karone and we're here because she needs an angel." Tess told them.

"It's the last day of school. What are we going to do?" Monica asked. While Tess, Monica and Andrew were watching Karone. Karone's ride finally got there. She climbed into the car. "Hi, do you think I can see if I can get a job?" Karone asked her mother. "If you want." Karone's mother answered. So the next day Karone went looking for a job. She saw a little sign that said help wanted.

She walked into the store, it looked like all of the jewelry, dolls, pillows, quilts were all hand made. "Hello." Monica greeted Karone as she stepped into the store. "Hi, I saw your help wanted sign. I was wondering if I could pick up an application?" Karone asked. "Sure, here you go." Monica said as she handed Karone the application. "I love to make things." Karone said admiring everything in the little store. "What kind of things do you make?" Monica asked. "Necklace's, bracelet's, rings, dolls, quilts, pillows. When did you open this store?" Karone asked. "Just this morning." Monica answered. "Wow, this stuff is so pretty. What were you hiring someone to do?" Karone asked. "Well someone who could make the jewelry, dolls, pillows, quilts and to stock the shelves." Monica answered. Karone finished filling out the application and handed it back to Monica. "How about you come in about 2:00 and start then?" Monica asked. Are you serious? I got the job?" Karone asked. "Yes, so would you like to start this afternoon at 2:00?" Monica asked. "Sure, that would be great." Karone ran out the door.

She ran the 2 blocks to her house, burst into the house. Her older sister Xena looked up from the movie she was watching. "What are you so happy about?" Xena asked. "I got a job!" Karone yelled. "Where?" Xena asked. "There's a new store about 2 blocks from here." Karone told her sister everything. Later that afternoon, Karone walked the two blocks back to the store. Her sister went with her so she could see what was in the store. "Hi." Karone said walking through the door. "Hello." Monica replied. "Oh, I forgot to introduce myself earlier. I'm Karone and this is my sister, Xena." Said Karone. "Hi. This stuff is really neat." Said Xena. "Thank you." Monica told her. "I think I better get home." Xena said a while later. "Okay, I'll see you later." Karone said as Xena walked out the door.

All of the sudden there was a screeching of tires and a scream.

"NO!" Karone screamed as she ran out the door, but it was too late. The car had hit her sister; Monica ran back inside and called for an ambulance. The ambulance soon arrived. The paramedics loaded Xena into the back to the ambulance; Karone climbed into the back of the ambulance so she could ride with her sister to the hospital. When they got to the hospital Karone called her parents and told them what was going on. The doctor came out awhile later and told them the news. "I am sorry to have to tell you this, but Xena died just about 2 minutes ago." The doctor said. Monica had closed to the store and come to the hospital. She walked into the door as Andrew led Xena home to Heaven. "Noooooooooooo!" Karone yelled as she ran from the hospital. "Karone!" Her mother yelled after her. But Karone had already disappeared through the door and didn't hear her.

A while later Monica found Karone in the park sobbing."Why did this have to happen? Why did my sister have to die? God tell me why did this have to happen?" Karone yelled at the sky as she held a knife to her throat ready to kill her self. "God loves you and your sister is with Him. Your sister is watching over you and she misses you." Monica said. "How do you kn..." Karone started to ask as she turned around. There was a light all around Monica.

"What are you? Who are you?" Karone asked. "I am an angel sent by God to tell you He loves you." Monica told Karone. "Then why did my sister have to die? My worst fear came true!" Karone yelled as she dropped the knife and started sobbing again. Monica walked over and put her arms around the girl. Karone cried herself to sleep.

When she woke up she was in her bed. Then she went to her sister's room, hoping that it had been a nightmare, but when she walked into her sister's room. It was the same as it had the day before, when her sister had been killed. She ran back to her room, closed her door and fell onto her bed sobbing once more. The house seemed quiet. Karone walked downstairs to see why the house was so quiet. Her parents were sitting at the kitchen table with a man and women. Karone walked into the room. "What's going on?" She asked as she sat down at the table. "Tess, Andrew, this is our daughter, Karone. Karone, this is, Tess and Andrew. They're helping us plan the funeral." Her mother explained. "No!" Karone screamed once she heard them say funeral and ran to her room crying. A while later there was a knock at the door. "Who is it?" Karone asked. "It's Tess." Tess replied. "Come in." Karone said. She was sitting at her desk writing a new story and crying. "Are you all right?" Tess asked as she stepped into the room. "No, my sister is dead." Karone replied.

The next day was the funeral. A guy about 22 stood over near a tree. Karone was the only who saw him at first. She recognized him from almost two days earlier. He had a cut on his head from when his head had hit the windshield. "You! You killed my sister!" Karone yelled. "I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to." He said with tears in his eyes. "Why did you kill my sister?" Karone asked. "I didn't mean to. My girlfriend who I've been going out with for about 5 years just broke up with me. I got some beer and got drunk, I know I shouldn't have been driving. I am so sorry. Could you ever forgive me?" He asked. "I don't know. You killed my sister." Karone replied. Later that day after the funeral. Zack walked over to the police station and told them what he had done. He went to prison. A few weeks later, Karone went to the prison to visit him. "Hi." Karone said through the phone. "Hi." He replied from the other side of the glass, using that phone. "I forgive you." Karone told him. "Thank you, I am still sorry for what I did." Zack told her.

The next two months flew by and it was time to go back to school. But Karone stopped doing a lot of her schoolwork. After the first day of school was over Karone went to the cemetery where Xena was buried. "Hey, what's going on? I know your probably really happy where you are now." Karone said sitting down on the ground and putting down some flowers. "I know I'm only 14, but I'll be 15 in about 5 weeks. I think this guy at school is really cute. His name is Jason. I stopped doing a lot of my homework to. I think next year when I turn 16, I'm going to drop out and get my G.E.D. Well it's getting dark, I think I better get home. Bye." Karone told Xena's grave.

Well on the day of Karone's 15th birthday. Jason walked over to Karone's table. "Hi, may I sit here?" Jason asked. "S...s...sure." Karone stammered. Jason sat down. "I heard what happen to your sister and I just wanted to say I'm sorry about what happen to her." Jason told her. "Thanks." Karone said looking down so he wouldn't see the tears in her eyes. "I heard you were working at the store near your house." Jason said changing the subject. "Yeah, I am." Karone said wiping her eyes with a napkin. "Hey, I was just wondering if you would like to go out tonight?" Jason asked. "Sure, what time?" Karone asked smiling for the first time since her sister had died just four months before. "How about 6:00?" Jason asked. "All right." Karone agreed.

That night Jason picked Karone up at 6:00. First they went to the cemetery. "Well Xena I'd like you to meet the guy I was telling you about a few weeks ago. Xena this is Jason." Said Karone. "Hi. Don't worry I won't hurt your sister." Jason said to Xena's grave. "Well I guess Jason and I better go if we're going to see the movie. I'll talk to you again later. Bye." Said Karone.

Jason and Karone didn't see Tess, Monica or Andrew standing over near a tree. "Is she going to be all right?" Monica asked. "She's going to be all right." Tess said.

A few years later, in the park. After Karone and Jason finished High School. Karone didn't drop out of school. The same place where Karone had yelled why did her sister have to die. Jason stopped walking turned so he was face to face with Karone and got down on one knee. "Karone, will you marry me?" Jason asked. "Yes!" Screamed as she jumped in Jason's arms. Well a while after Jason had asked Karone to marry him they went to go tell her parents. "Mom, dad, I'm home." Karone said as she walked into the living room. "Hi, what's going on?" Her mother asked. "Oh nothing, I'm just getting married." Karone told her mother. "What?" Her mother and father said in unison. "I'm getting married." Karone repeated.

A few months later was the wedding. "God, I know you're probably busy, but I was wondering if you would come to my wedding. I was also wondering if Monica, Tess and Andrew could come to my wedding to. Thanks for listening. Amen." Karone finished. "Karone, where are you?" Her mother asked. "I'm in the living room." Karone replied. Karone's mother walked in with Tess, Monica and Andrew right behind her. "Oh my gosh! You're here you made it!" Karone screamed. "Hello, Karone, how are things going?" Tess asked. "Oh things are going soooooooooo great. I'm so glad you could come." Karone told them. "I'm sorry to interrupt. But Karone you better go get ready. The ceremony is about to start." Karone's mother told her. "All right. I'll talk to you later." Karone told Tess, Monica and Andrew as she ran off to get ready for the wedding. "Thank you, God." Said Karone as she walked out of the room.

The wedding was on a warm summer day. The same day her sister had been killed 8 years before. "Do you Jason take Karone to be your wife? To have and to hold, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, until death do you part?" The minister asked Jason. "I do." Jason said looking into Karone's eyes. "Do you Karone take Jason to be your husband? To have and to hold, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, until death do you part?" The minster asked Karone. "I do." Karone said looking into Jason's eyes.

"I now pronounce you man and wife. You may kiss the bride." The minister said. Well of course Jason and karone went on their honeymoon, but I'm not going to say what happened. Since you probably know.

But nine months later Karone gave birth to twins. A boy and a girl, she named the boy Ryan and the girl Xena after her sister. Sadly a couple of years later Karone was driving home to the farm where her, Jason, Ryan and Xena lived. When she saw a deer, she swerved to hit the deer and went off the side of the rode running into a tree, she died instantly, but Andrew was there and led her home to heaven. Where she saw her sister, it had been 11 years since her sister had died.

Well years later Ryan and Xena were taken to the cemetery where their mother was buried. They stared wondering through the cemetery and looking at the names and dates. "Hey, Xena, your dead!" Ryan yelled at his sister.

"I am not! I'm right..." Xena stopped when she saw her name on gravestone."Daddy, why is my name on that gravestone." Xena asked her father. "That's not you, Xena. That's your aunt that you were named after." Jason told Xena and Ryan. "What happen to her?" Xena asked. "Well a long time. Your mother was 14 years old and after school had ended she went looking for a job. She found a job in a store. That sold home made jewelry, dolls, pillows and quilts. The day she started, she ran home to tell her sister. Your Aunt Xena, well after a while Xena said she was going to go home. But when she walked out the door, a car hit her, She died 2 minutes after they got her to the hospital. So your mother went to the park and screamed at God why did her sister have to die. A couple of months later I asked your mother out. Then we got married and just about nine months after we were married, you two were born. Then when you two were just about two years old, she died in car crash, swerving so she wouldn't hit a deer." Jason told them. Ryan and Xena were now 12 years old. "Well at least we know mama is happy to see Aunt Xena again in heaven. We'll see her again some day." Said Xena as she tried not to cry. Jason, Ryan and Xena walked out of the cemetery. Not knowing that Tess, Monica and Andrew had been watching them. It was mid afternoon.

A dove flew right over Xena, Ryan and Jason. "Hey, look it's a dove. Oh I love animals." Xena said. Well Ryan grew up to be a doctor and Xena grew up to be a veterinarian. Jason died peacefully in his sleep and Andrew was there to lead him home to heaven.

"Jason, you finally made it hear!" Karone yelled running into Jason's arms. "Yeah, I finally made it." Jason told her. "Jason, this is my sister, Xena." Karone told him. "So I finally get to meet the person Karone won't quit talking about." Xena said walking over.

Well on Earth Ryan and Xena were at the funeral. Xena had married a couple of years before her father died and had 1 daughter which she named, Karone, who was 1 years old. She had named her daughter Karone after her mother. Ryan got married just about a year before and was expecting his first child in about two months. A dove flew overhead. Ryan and Xena looked up and smiled. Because the day they remembered the day they had gone visit their mothers grave and the dove that had flew overhead that day.

Karone's Story

Disclaimer: Yeah, everyone knows this. Monica, Tess and Andrew do not belong to me. Touched By An Angel belongs to Martha Willamison.

Summary: Well this is the 2nd through the 4th part of my Karoneís story. This is told from Xena, Karone and Jasonís point of view.

Dear Diary,

Hi, my name is Xena. Tomorrow is the last day of school. My sister canít wait. Until school is out tomorrow. She told me sheís going to see if she could find a summer job. I donít think many places will hire 14 year olds. I didnít tell her though, because sheís so excited. I canít wait for school to get out tomorrow. Karone said she couldnít wait to get out of school, because it seems like all of the kids tease her. Well I better get some sleep for school. Write again tomorrow. Bye.

Xena

Xena closed her diary, turned out the light and went to sleep.

Dear Diary,

I woke up this morning to my alarm going off. I turned it off and went back to sleep. Until Karone came into my room wide awake. "GOOD MORNING!" Karone said as loud as she could. "Go away." I mumbled pulling my pillow over my head. Hoping my sister would go away, but she didnít. She just pulled the pillow off my head. "Itís the last day of school!" She told me. I sat up wide-awake, I had forgot today is the last day of school. "Iím awake, all right? Get out." I told her. "All right." Karone said as she left my room. Well I finally got dressed. Karone and I took the bus. I got off at the Jr. High and Karone got off at the middle school. Well Iím not going to say much about what happened today, because all we did at school was party. Karone asked mama if she could get a job and mama said if she wanted to. So Karone said she is going to go Job hunting tomorrow. Well this has been a long day and Iím tired. So I guess Iíll write again tomorrow.

Xena

Well Xena turned out the light and went to sleep.

Dear Diary,

Today I didnít wake up until almost noon. I got up and went to watch a movie. I was watching a movie, when Karone got back from wherever she went. "Why are you so happy?" I asked. "I got a job!" Karone yelled. "Where?" I asked. "Thereís a store about 2 blocks from here." She told me. SO Iím going to go back to the store with her this afternoon to see whatís in the store. Karone said itís a lot of homemade stuff. She doesnít start until 2:00 this afternoon. So I guess I better go get dressed. Write again soon.

Xena

I went to go get dressed. About 2 hours later Karone and I walked back to the store. "Hi." Said Karone as we walked through the door. "Hello." Said the lady behind the counter. "Oh, I forgot to introduce myself earlier. Iím Karone and this is my sister Xena." Karone told the lady behind the counter. Iím not real sure about what her name was, but she was really nice. "Hi, this stuff is really neat." I told her. "Thank you." She replied. "I think Iím going to go home." I told Karone and the lady behind the counter. I found out her name is Monica. I walked out the door, and then I saw a car headed in my direction. I screamed, but couldnít move. The next thing I knew, I was on the ground and there was a guy knelt beside me. "My name is Andrew and Iíve been sent here by God to take you home." Said the stranger. "I can walk home by myself. I live only 2 blocks from here." I told him. "I am an Angel, sent by God to take you to Heaven." Andrew told me. "Nooooooooo!" Someone screamed from not far away. I guess someone called an ambulance, because they loaded me up and took me to the hospital, Andrew took me home to Heaven. Thatís where I am now. I found out Moncia is an Angel who was sent to help my sister cope with my death.

Part 3
Karone's Diary

Dear Diary,

My name is Karone. Well tomorrow is the last day of school. It seems like every kid in school teases me, I donít know why, but thatís hat it seems like. Iím going to ask mama if I can get a summer job. Well I think I better get some sleep for school tomorrow. Goodnight.

Karone

Dear Diary,

Today was the last day of school. I asked mama if I could get a summer job and she said if I wanted to. So Iím going to go look for a job tomorrow. Iíll write and tell you what happened. Goodnight.

Karone

Dear Diary,

Hi, I went to look for a job today. I saw a store about 2 blocks from here that was hiring. So I went in and this is what happened:

"Hi, I was your help wanted sign and I was wondering if I could pick up an application?" I asked the lady behind the counter. "Sure, here you go." Said the lady behind the counter handing me an application. "I love to make thins." I said admiring the dolls, pillows, quilts and jewelry. "What kind of things do you make?" She asked. I found out her name is Monica. "Jewelry, dolls, pillows and rings. When did this store open?" I asked. "Just this morning." Monica answered. "Wow, this stuff is really neat. What are you hiring someone to do." I asked. "Well someone to make the jewelry, dolls, pillows and quilts. Someone to stock the shelves." Monica replied. "I finished filling out the application and handed it back to Monica. "Why donít you start at 2:00 this afternoon and start then." Monica told me. "Are you serious? I got the job?" I asked. "Yes, would you like to start at 2:00 this afternoon?" Monica asked. "Yeah, that would be great!" I yelled running out the store and running the 2 blocks home.

When I burst through the door. My older sister Xena looked up from the movie she was watching. "What are you so happy about?" She asked me. "I got a job!" I yelled. "Where?" Xena asked. "Thereís a store about 2 blocks from here." I told Xena everything. Later that afternoon Xena and I walked back to the store. "Hi." I said walking through the door. "Hello." Monica replied. "Oh, I forgot to introduce myself earlier. Iím Karone and this is my sister Xena." I said. "Hi, this stuff is really neat." Xena said. "Thank you." Monica replied. "I think Iím going to go home." Xena said a while later. "All right, Iíll see you later." I said as Xena walked out the door.

Then I heard a scream and a screeching of tires.

"Noooooooo!" I yelled as I ran out the door, but it was to late the car had hit Xena, Moncia ran back inside to call an ambulance. The ambulance soon arrived, the paramedics loaded Xena into the back. Then I climbed into the back so I could get a ride to the hospital. As soon as I got to the hospital, I called my parents and told them what was going on. Well they got there as soon as they could. A while later the doctor came out and told us what was going on. "Iím sorry to have to tell you this, but Xena died 2 minutes ago." The doctor told us. I saw Monica walk in the door. "Noooooo!" I yelled as I ran from the hospital. "Karone!" I heard my mother yell. But I didnít look back, I kept running. I ran to a park near the hospital. "Why did this have to happen? Why did my sister have to die? God, tell me why did this have to happen?" I yelled at the sky holding a knife to my throat ready to kill myself.

"God loves you and your sister is with Him. Your sister is watching over you and misses you." Monica said from behind me. "How do you knÖ" I started to ask as I turned around. There was a light all around Monica. "What are you? Who are you?" I asked. "I am an Angel sent by God to tell you He loves you." Monica told me. "Then why did my sister have to die? My worst fear came true!" I yelled dropping the knife and starting to cry once more.

Karone

Dear Diary,

I guess I must have cried myself to sleep. When I woke up this morning I was in my own bed. I went to Xenaís room, hoping it was a nightmare. Her room was the same as it was yesterday, when she was killed. I ran back to my room, closed my door and started crying again. The house seemed quiet, I went downstairs to see why the house seemed so quiet. My parents were sitting at the table with a man and women. I walked into the room. "Whatís going on?" I asked. "Tess, Andrew, this is Karone. Karone, this is Tess and Andrew. Theyíre helping us plan the funeral." My mother explained. "No!" I yelled when I heard the word funeral and ran to my room. A while later there was a knock at my door. "Who is it?" I asked. "Itís Tess." Tess answered. "Come in." I said. "Are you all right?" Tess asked. "No, my sister is dead." I replied. Well thatís what happened today. Goodnight.

Karone

Dear Diary,

Today was the funeral. There was a guy there about 22. I saw him a couple of days ago. He was the guy that killed my sister. He had a cut on his head from when his head hit the windshield. I think I was the first one to notice him at first. "You! You killed my sister!" I screamed. "Iím so sorry. I didnít mean to." He told me. "Why did you kill my sister?" I screamed. "Iím so sorry. My girlfriend broke up with me. I got some beer and got drunk. I know I shouldnít have been driving. Could you forgive me?" He asked. "I donít know." I told him. "Well I found out his name was Zack and after the funeral, he went to the police station and turned himself in. He is now in prison. Goodnight.

Karone

Dear Diary,

Sorry, I havenít written in a couple of weeks. Well here is what happened today. I went to the prison so I could visit Zack. I know he killed my sister, but I just had to go tell him something. "Hi." I said from one side of the glass wall. "Hi." Zack replied from the other side of the glass wall. I took a deep breath. "I forgive you." I told him. "Thank you, I am sorry for what I did." Zack told me. Goodnight.

Karone

Dear Diary,

I know I havenít written in a couple of months. School has started again. Well this is what happened today. I went to go visit Xenaís grave. "Hey, whatís going on? I know youíre probably happy where you are now." I said sitting down on the ground and putting some flowers down. "I know Iím only 14, but Iíll be 15 in about 5 weeks. I think this guy at school is really cute, his name is Jason. I stopped doing a lot of my schoolwork. I think next year when I turn 16 Iím going to drop out and get my G.E.D. Well itís getting dark.

"SÖsÖsure." I stuttered. "I heard about what happen to your sister and Iím sorry about what happened." Said Jason sitting down. "Thanks." I said looking down so he wouldnít see the tears in my eyes. "Hey, I also heard you got a job at a store near your house." Jason said changing the subject. "Yeah, I did." I replied wiping my eyes with a napkin. "I was wondering would you like to a movie tonight?" Jason asked. "Sure, what time?" I asked smiling for the first time in since Xenaís death almost 4 months ago. "How about 6:00?" Jason asked. "All right." I agreed. Well Iíll write again tonight and tell you what happens. Bye.

"Do you Karone take Jason to be your husband? To have and to hold, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, until death do you part?" The minister asked me. "I do."

Part 4
Jason's Journal

Dear Journal,

Hi, my name is Jason. Today at school I met this girl. Her name is Karone. She looked kind of sad, but I would be sad if my sister died almost 4 months ago. Well this is how I know her sister died. The day after it happened it was in the newspaper. Well from what I heard Karone found a job, went home told her sister. Her sister went with back to the store with her. Her sisterís name is Xena. Well anyway as Xena was leaving the store a car was coming. Xena was hit by the car and died 2 minutes after she got to the hospital. Karone, I think took it the hardest.

Well today she was sitting at a lunch table by herself. Well I walked over and this is what happened:

"Hi, may I sit here?" I asked. "SÖsÖsure." Karone stuttered. "I heard about what happened to your sister and I wanted to say Iím sorry about what happened to you sister." I told her. "Thanks." She said looking away. I guess she didnít want me to see the tears in her eyes, but I did. "I also heard you got a job at a store near your house." I said changing the subject. "Yeah, I did." Karone said wiping her eyes. "I was wondering fi you could like to go to a movie tonight?" I asked. "Sure, what time?" Karone asked smiling. That was the first time I was saw her smile. "How about 6:00 tonight?" I asked. "All right." Karone agreed.

Dear Journal,

Tonight I went to pick her up. I got there right at 6:00. First we went to the cemetery. "I would like you to meet the guy I was telling you about a couple of weeks ago. Xena this is Jason." Karone said to Xenaís gravestone. "Hi, donít worry. I wonít hurt your sister." I promised. "Well we better go if weíre going to see the movie." Karone told me. Karone and I walked out of the cemetery hand in hand. Karone started smiling a lot more after tonight. Bye.

Jason

Dear Journal,

I know itís been a couple of years, but today was one of the greatest days of my life. Karone and I finished high school. We were walking in the part, I stopped and turned so I was face to face with her. I got down on one knee and this is what happened. "Karone, will you marry me?" I asked. "Yes!" Karone screamed as she jumped into my arms. Well a while later we went to go tell her parents. Bye.

Jason

Dear Journal,

Itís been a couple of months since I last wrote. Iíve just been busy. Today Karone and I got married. It was so nice and sunny outside. Well this is what happened today:

I had just got ready. When three people walked up. I saw Karone run over and hug them. Saying how glad she was that they could come. I didnít know who they were. Then a few minutes later the ceremony started. "Do you Jason take Karone to be your wife? To have and to hold, in sickness and in heath, for richer or poorer, until death do you part?" The minister asked. "I do." I said looking into Karoneís eyes. "Do you Karone take Jason to be your husband? To have and to hold, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, until death do you part?" The minister asked Karone. "I do." Said Karone looking into my eyes. "I now pronounce you man and wife. You may kiss the bride." Said the minister. "Who were those three people?" I asked when we were dancing. "Theyíre Angels." Karone replied. "Real Angels sent by God?" I asked. "Yeah, real Angels sent by God." Karone told me. "Why are they here?" I asked. "Remember when Xena died 8 years ago?" Karone asked. I nodded. "Yes." I told her. "Well that guy is Andrew, he took her home to Heaven. Monica told me a while ago. Monica was sent to comfort me when Xena died." Karone told me. "Then who is the other Angel?" I asked. "Thatís their supervisor, Tess." Said Karone. "How do you know so much?" I asked. "I asked Monica who Tess and Andrew are." Karone replied. Well thatís what happened. Bye.

Jason

Dear Journal,

I know itís been about nine months since I last wrote. Karone gave birth. Karone and I now have a son and a daughter. We named the girl Xena, after Karoneís sister and we named the boy Ryan. Well I donít know what else to write, bye.

Jason

Dear Journal,

Well today is Ryan and Xenaís 2nd birthday. Well Karone went to pick up the cake and presents from a friend. On her way home, her car went off the road. She died instantly. Thatís what the police told me. How am I going to tell Ryan and Xena their mother is dead? Well I better go tell them. Write again later, bye.

Jason

Dear Journal,

This is what happened:

I walked into Ryanís room. Xena was there to. They looked up at me with their motherís eyes. "Hi daddy." Ryan and Xena said in unison. "Hi." I replied sadly. "Whatís wrong?" Xena asked as she sat down next to me on Ryanís bed. Well Ryan must have sensed something was wrong to, because he came and sat on my other side. "Something happened today and your mommy is going to sleep forever." I told them. "Whereís mommy?" Ryan asked as he went and stood by Xena. "Your mommy was in an accident. Now she is going to live in Heaven with God and the Angels." I told them. "MÖmÖ.mÖmommyís dÖdÖdÖdead?" Xena asked starting to cry. I pulled Ryan and Xena into a hug. Ryan, Xena and I sat there crying for I donít know how long. A while later I looked on either side of me. Ryan and Xena were sound asleep. I got up very quietly so I wouldnít wake them up. I put Ryan in his bed and covered him up with a blanket at the end of his bed. Then I took Xena to her room and covered her up with a blanket at the end of her bed. I left the room and then realized I had covered them up with blankets their mother had made for them. Then I got the feeling there was someone else in the room. I turned around and there stood Monica, Tess and Andrew. "Are you really Angels?" I asked. "Ye weíre really Angels." Tess replied. "Then why are you here?" I asked. "We were sent to give you a message." Andrew replied. "God loves you, Ryan and Xena." Monica told me. "Why did Karone die?" I asked. "She went off the road, she swerved so she wouldnít hit a deer. I took her home." Andrew told me. "That sounds like Karone. She loved animals. Wait you took Xena home to Heaven to didnít you?" I asked Andrew. "Yes, I did." Andrew replied. A few minutes later they left. Well thatís what happened today, bye.

Jason

Dear Journal,

Well I havenít written in about 10 years. Today is Ryan and Xenaís 12th birthday. I took them to the cemetery. Ryan and Xena started to wander around. They looked at the names and dates. "Hey Xena youíre dead!" I hear Ryan yell at his sister. "I am not. Iím right hÖ" Xena stopped when she saw her name on the gravestone. "Thatís not you Xena. Thatís your Aunt Xena that died almost 9 years before you were born. Xena, your mother named you after her." I told Xena. "What happen to her?" Xena asked.

"Well a long time ago. When your mother was about 14 years old. School let out for them summer. Your mother went to find a summer job. She found one in a store that sold Jewelry, dolls, quiltsÖ" I started to tell the story, but Xena interrupted me.

"The one we own, Daddy?" Xena asked.

"Yes, theon we wond. Well when she got the job, she ran home and told your Aunt Xena. Well you mother started at 2:00 that afternoon. Your Aunt Xena went with your mother so she could see what was in the store. A while later Xena said she was going to head home, but when Xena walked out the door, a car hit her. She died 2 minutes after she got to the hospital. Your mother went to a park and yelled at God why did her sister have to die. A couple of months later, I asked your mother out, 8 years later we got married. Nine months later you two were born. Then the day of your 2ed birthday, your mother died in a car crash, swerving so she wouldnít hit a deer." I finished the story.

"Well at least we know mama is happy to see Aunt Xena and sheís in Heaven." Said Xena trying not to cry. Ryan, Xena and I walked out of the cemetery. It was mid afternoon. A dove flew overhead. "Hey look a dove. I love animals." Said Xena. Just like your mother I thought, but didnít say anything.

Well now itís twenty-five years later. I died peacefully in my sleep and now Iím in Heaven. "Jason, you finally made it here!" Karone yelled as she ran into my arms. "Yeah, I finally made it." I told her. "Jason, this is my sister, Xena." Karone told me. "So youíre the guy my sister wonít quit talking about." Said Xena as she walked over.

THE END
