Angel on the Stairs

About ten years ago, i became obsessed with the supernatural after getting proof from a ouija board. It all went horribly wrong though, when one night something invisible hit me from behind three times, this is when i prayed and the thing left. From that day i firmly believed in God and still do.
I stopped being obsessed with the paranormal and lived my life as best i could for God. One evening my best friend, Paul brought his daughter's ex-boyfriend (Daniel) over to my house. We all went out for a drink and i thought Daniel was really sweet and felt so sorry for him that he had been dumped by Paul's daughter, Dawn. Little was i to realise how wrong i was about the sweetness. He told me later, back at my house he was into Wicca and for some strange reason i thought i heard voices when we were in the hallway, but he hadn't said anything and Paul was in the lounge. I said to Daniel, 'did you hear that?' He just looked at me startled and said 'yes.'
He then had an odd sort of look on his face. I was a bit freaked and decided to go to bed. So i went upstairs to get two quilts and two pillows for them to sleep downstairs.
As i left my bedroom loaded with bedding under both arms, (bear in mind i still have my stilletto heels on) I felt my footing miss the second step and i started to fall forwards from the top of my steep staircase. At the bottom of the stairs were numerous things including a bycicle against the wall and a rigid telephone table with a lamp on it.
I knew as i started to take off, i was in trouble and i screamed and passed out as i tried, but failed to grab the bannister rail.
The next thing i knew after coming round seconds later, i'm sitting on the second to bottom stair totally unharmed and still holding the bedding under both arms.
Paul and Daniel came rushing in, Paul said he'd expected to see me lying dead or badly hurt as he heard me scream.
How did i defy gravity like that?
I later found out that Daniel had thought Paul and I were having an affair and because he still loved Dawn, was totally against me. Was it dark powers at work here and then an Angel catching me?
I don't know.
