From behind her clamped hands a soft sob was heard. It was no use, she thought bitterly, despairingly. No matter how hard she pleaded, God would still not budge. And she knew this, for He had all the plans for the universe and they would not alter just because one little angel like her missed somebody and wanted that somebody to be taken to heaven for her own sake.
Frayed breaths still followed and later were replaced by small hitches and soft sighs as the angel got calmer. She took away her tear-soaked hands from her face and slowly put them flatly on the table. Looking around, she felt even more lonely and miserable. God, however, had answered her plea and made her think about why somebody had to remain on Earth. But she was not only to think. God had also asked her to write down the reasons.
“You might not know my real reasons,” God had said. “Or rather, you will never know them because they are the secrets of the universe. But you can think of them and how you would act--were you in my place.”
