“Marcus and Shayla are one of our major challenges. You’ll see they have an open and wonderful relationship one minute, but then everything shifts into the complete opposite.” Cupid frowned as he watched the horror unfold again.
God crossed his arms and contemplated the situation. “I have a feeling we are missing a critical piece of information. What have you tried so far to make things better?”
“Well, I asked a few advanced angels to help me monitor the movements of each couple for a few weeks. We didn’t see anything odd, so I sent a couple of extreme angels down to help and possibly learn something useful.” Cupid rolled his neck and grimaced when he heard it crack. Cupid walked around the table and checked to see what Valentina was doing since she was awfully quiet. “Honey, are you okay?”
Val sat with her legs crossed and her hand on her face. She turned her head to the side. “I was thinkin for you. What if you broughted them here? You’re the bestest teacher, daddy.”
God ducked down and winked at Val. “Cupid, that’s a perfect solution. Bring them here, and we can work on them without interference from the outside world. If we’re lucky, we can figure out their issues and fix the rest of the world at the same time.” He tugged on one of Val’s curls. “You’re such a smart girl. Come and give me a hug before I leave.”
She scooted over to him and wrapped her chubby arms around his neck. “Wuv you.”
Cupid chuckled when she ran back over to the stereo to change the song. He glanced at God. “Out of the mouths of babes. I don’t know why I didn’t think of that.”
