"I know," she said, biting her lip. "But I'm worried Tea will come with us whether we want her to or not. These villains have claimed the lives of just about all the family she had, she'll want payback."
"Not all her family," Tom said, catching them offguard as he seemed to appear suddenly behind them. "Her mother was my sister, when she and her husband were killed by the Hunters I took her and Sarna in and treated them like the kids I'd never had. I don't want to risk her in battle but Myra's right, revenge is what drives Tea now. Rock and Myra can provide us with plenty of protection between them. I don't want to take Sam and Tea with us but I'd rather they went up as part of our team than go up alone."
"Do not underestimate Tea's powers Clarice," The Archangel said. "I have seen her future, if it turns out the way our ship came from. She becomes one of the greatest heroes the Underground has, I'm not sure even you Tom are aware of her full potential."
Myra was staring at the ring on the Archangel's hand, convinced she had seen the image on it somewhere before. Then as Sam brought Tea towards them she saw the ring on Tea's left hand. They were almost identical, the only difference being the creature's ring appeared more aged.
Clarice, Myra sent her telepathically. I think I know who the Archangel really is, unless there's an unbelievable conicidence at work here."
