On 7th Street An Angel Fell - Short Fiction by Dennis Lowery

Christianity—The Old Testament—says, “For God did not spare angels when they sinned but cast them into Hell and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the Judgment.” And modern Orthodox Rebbeim believes that “Angels don’t have free will and are pre-programmed to perform certain duties. When an angel’s duty is completed, the angel ceases to exist.”

But what if an Angel—as it is sometimes with Humans—found renewed purpose through discovering free will and redemption by not accepting an imposed (self or otherwise) Hell.

What if one man’s path to salvation was through trying to solve the mystery of an apparent ‘jumper’ suicide attempt. A young woman that cannot be identified that no one cares about, who disappears and he finds out what happened to her.

That they both have fallen doesn’t matter… it’s that they got up.

“Run my dear,
From anything
That may not strengthen
Your precious budding wings.”
— Hafez

Sometimes there’s a reason for what’s happened—what happens—to you. And what you’re called upon to do… or that you don’t do, can have life-changing consequences.

“The only way out is through.”
— Robert Frost

PLEASE READ: This--below--is where intelligent comments are exchanged and threads of meaningful and thought-provoking discussion can take place. Some of my favorite stories I've written started with such exchanges and through them I've met some truly wonderful people. This comment section is a place where it's almost old-school in that responses--if one is needed--may not be immediate but will come. Kind of like postal mail correspondence, an easier pace that allows thoughtfulness and not knee-jerk fingers flying over keyboard replies, or something that comes out as top of mind, a stream of conscious superficiality. I hope to hear from and interact with you on anything I've written that sparks a thought or urge to comment.
