FALLING
 F
irst, there was silence—In the space between Heaven and the Fall, deep inthe unknowable distance, there was a moment when theglorious hum of Heaven disappeared and was replacedby a silence so profound that Daniel’s soul strained tomake out any noise.Then came the actual feeling of falling—the kind of drop that even his wings couldn’t save him from, as if the Throne had attached moons to them. They hardly
 
beat, and when they did it made no impact on the trajec-tory of his fall.Where was he going? There was nothing before himand nothing behind. Nothing up and nothing down.Only thick darkness, and the blurry outline of what wasleft of Daniel’s soul.In the absence of any noise whatsoever, his mindtook over: It filled his head with something else, some-thing inescapable: the haunting words of Luce’s curse.
She will die. . . . She will never pass out of adoles-cence . . . will die again and again and again at preciselythe moment when she remembers your choice.You will never truly be together.
It was Lucifer’s foul imprecation, his embittered ad-dendum to the Throne’s sentence passed there in theheavenly Meadow. Now death was coming for his love.Could Daniel stop it? Would he even recognize it?For what did an angel know of death? Daniel hadwitnessed it come peacefully to some of the new mortalbreeds called humans, but death was not the concern of angels.Death and adolescence: the two absolutes in Luci-fer’s Curse. Neither meant a thing to Daniel. All he knewwas that being separated from Lucinda was not a pun-ishment he could endure. They had to be together.
“Lucinda!”
he shouted.His soul should have warmed at the very thought of her, but there was only aching absence.
