More About This Title Bad ANGELS


The angels reached accord. They must kill St. Dominic.
There were many ways to do this.
God could strike him with a lightning bolt from heaven in a flash. But the Angels would have to ask God to do the deed, and their relationship with the eternal heavenly father did not automatically allow that. Humans could pray to God, and on a good day, he might hear their prayers. But humans tend to be unreliable. If one prays for black, another is likely to pray for white. It has been thus since the days of Adam and Eve.
All things considered, it would be better to go about the task without involving the Lord. The angels should do it using their own limited powers. Angels can fly, so gaining entry to the secure space would not be a problem. There were already angels inside the Garden – members of the angelic host – who could help.
No, it would be better to pose as humans.
The guards at the Garden gate might be a problem, but not an insuperable one. Intrinsically, guards are dumb. The longer they work at their boring, mentally crippling job, the dumber they get. When any organism lives without sensory stimulation its senses atrophy. The guards would have endured years of exposure to their brain-numbing routine. They would not be good at picking up the unusual, then asking themselves what, or whom, lay behind it.
The angels should enter by the front gate, just like humans
