Summary for This Series: The Guardian is a series that will take you out of the harsh world around you, only to throw you into an even harsher one. Isabella was once a guardian angel, but after the decision to show herself to her assignment ultimately kills the girl she was suppose to be guarding, her wings are taken from her and she is thrust into the world of emptiness. After centuries of loneliness, the fallen angel takes it upon herself to protect Edward Mason, a newborn baby. Five years after his birth, Bella makes the same fatal decision for Edward that she made for her first and last assignment.


I could not help but question if this was the best thing to do. Could he keep me a secret? Of course not! He was only five years old, after all. However, I could not stay away from him anymore. I had watched over his beloved life since the day of his birth, and now I could not wait to meet him. Because I had been with him since the moment he was brought into this merciless world, I knew everything there was to know about him. I knew that if I could earn his trust and become his friend, that he would keep my existence hushed; but what if I could not do that? Could I leave him alone, let him live out his human existence? No. I was to protect Edward forever, his entire life; and I would do nothing less than that.
I had never actually been assigned to Edward by anyone of authority, but I had vowed to protect him from anything that may come to harm him. I had been banned from being a guardian angel since I had been the cause of my first, last, and only assignment’s death. She was just a girl, a few years older than Edward was, when I came out of the shadows of fear and showed her who I was, and by revealing my secrets to her, she was killed, to keep my existence a secret. After that, the head master took away my wings and let me fall. She told me that I was never to guard another human again, no matter what the case.
I knew that when I first saw Edward being brought into the hospital nursery, I could not honor that wish. Elizabeth had just given birth to him, and he was being brought in the monotonous nursery to be bathed, and give his mother some time to rest. He just looked like an angel, and from that moment, he was my angel. I could not just walk away from him, and so I did not. Therefore, I had not officially been given Edward to protect, but he was my own perfect selection. When I drowned I was only sixteen years old, and human; the angels who later were the cause of my downfall had saved me. I was given a second chance to live, and help others live. Now, I was just an angel with no wings. Once a guardian angel, now a girl who waited on a young boy‘s windowsill.
In the past few weeks, I had persuaded myself that this time would be poles apart, that Edward would not be killed because of my own lack of common sense. I knew that I would be in deep trouble if I was caught, and if Edward did not keep quiet about me, he would be in even more trouble. I was a self-centered idiot, who was ready to annihilate the thing I held most dear to my heart, just to be able to swap a few words with him. I had in all honesty grown to adore Edward over the past five years. I knew that one day he would grow up to be an outstanding man, and a terrific husband to some blessed woman, I just knew it. He had a gentle and caring nature for a lad, unlike the wretched boys who torment the girls in the schoolyard. I hated only being able to watch him from a distance, not being able to communicate with him.
I was not going to let anyone harm Edward, not even the people who took my wings from me. I was Edward’s guardian, with or without their say-so, and I was going to guard him from each and every one thing that could hurt him, as well as myself.
