For the angel in the dirty trenchcoat. The angel who lost faith in his Father but found it rekindled in humanity. The angel who left his home and everything he knew to fight by the side of the two boys who adopted him as their own. For the angel who always came when his human brothers called, who for their sake sacrificed everything that he ever was or hoped to be, because if there was one flaw in his being, it was that he’d always had too much heart.
Outside the open window
The morning air is all awash with angels.
