Michael was so preoccupied with answering Claudia’s questions and trying to push away the pain that he wasn’t prepared for what Claudia did next. She turned, but luckily Michael was faster. Unsure if she caught a glimpse, he held her tightly in his arms so she couldn’t move or turn to see his face. He felt himself melt and burn in her touch.He lost his breath when her hair brushed against his face. His emotions were running rampant—every emotion that could be felt was happening all at once. Michael didn’t know what to do. Closing his eyes, he took all of her in, trying to hold onto to her as long as he could. He needed to leave, but couldn’t get his body to listen.Claudia remained still, enjoying his embrace but not knowing why, and was surprised that she felt some kind of mysterious connection to this angel. He was a complete stranger, yet his touch gave her _______. She knew he would have to leave. Her friends were most likely on their way, hoping to find her here since they were split up.“I have to go. They’re almost here.”Claudia wanted to ask a question, but she couldn’t open her mouth to speak. She felt lost in his hold. Slowly her right hand found its way to his face.“You don’t give up, do you?” Michael chuckled lightly.“No, I don’t,” she said, and ran her hand to feel every inch of his face. His brows were thick, his nose nicely defined, he had high cheekbones, and lips as soft as his feathers.Michael closed his eyes, quivering, enjoying her caress, bringing back the good memories.“Next time, I’ll know it’s you when we meet in the dark.”Michael grinned, happy to hear her words. “Please be safe. I may not be there next time.”“Oh,” she sighed, disappointed.With one last tight squeeze, Michael soared into the clear blue sky and disappeared.
Beautiful, Claudia thought as she watched him ascend. “Just like Superman,” she giggled.
