All I did was allow them a choice
(it’s more than you or I got).
A dichotomous viewpoint doesn’t allow room for grace
in the execution of Someone’s effin’ ineffable plan
(execution? Hell well could have been mine…but I just kept talking).
I do like these days better.
I watch you from across the room when you think I’m asleep.
Hands that held a flaming sword now carefully turn the vellum pages of ancient tomes.
You pause and, lifting a pen, mark a thought to paper.
Your fingers encircling, grasping the shaft – DAMN your nails are buffed and perfect.
Why do you take better care of your hands than your wings?
You lose yourself in books – what was, instead of what IS.
Come, let’s go to the park and feed the ducks.

My pulse catches as I match it to his.
He shifts and sighs, parting his lips.
One arm rests easily across his chest, rising gently with each softly sibilant breath, whilst the other hand
drifts down onto his lap.
I try not to focus on this.

Sophia had found many strange sights waiting for her when she turned up to the bookshop. Granted, some of them she had actually wished to unsee, but life is always like that.
The sight in question was one she never thought she'd see, mostly because the angel and demon had told her she'd never see it.

Aziraphale and Crowley slow-dancing to the song on the radio that was never to be turned on.
And in the front of the store too, not hidden away in the back room.
The pair were too occupied by their dancing to notice the sound of the bell above the door, or the werewolf now standing amongst the shelves. Sophia pulled her phone out of her bag just as another song started and she began filming the dancing couple.
The pair remained oblivious, so far as s
