"All because of you,
I believe in angels.
Not the kind with wings,
No, not the kind with halos;
The kind that brings you home,
when home becomes a strange place."
-- Rise Against

Not all angels are innocent and holy.
In fact, the most angelic souls are within our own human population.

That's right. A small number of angels have been amongst us for centuries, and yet, you never would've known they even existed ... until now.

After celebrating her eighteenth birthday, Andrea is revealed the naked truth. Defiant as she may be, Andrea simply cannot ignore it any longer. Her life starts spinning out of control, and she knows that only she can fix it. Or can she..?

Scott is the impenetrable, blunt man who fate has paired with Andrea. He contains critical wisdom and information that gives him the power to bring an end to Earth without a moments notice. However, once faced with a puzzling dilemma, will he and Andrea be able to right the wrong, before the damage is irreversible?
