The sparkle and shine of gold drew my eyes back yet again. No matter how many times I winged away to find Dean, I always came back to her. Jimmy’s child, Claire, had become as important to me as she had been to him. He gave up his body to spare her, and I would protect her like she was my child.
Her mother doesn’t know I’m here, but Claire knows. She hosted my essence for a few brief moments, but she knows that I’m here. I catch a small smile when her eyes meet mine across the parking lot.
