From an angel who had been cast out of Heaven, and in the fall had lost half a wing, and in order to be kept alive, had to rely on the charity of good-hearted humans with whom it happened to come across.
from an odd kind of sweetness, something like the harmless way a mother stands in front of her child, trying to defend it from the inevitable death at the hands (and fangs!) of the bloodthirsty vampire before her.
from the shelter of my breeders, in a rush of overconfidence that would ultimately lead to my utter failure in everything I tried to accomplish.
from the opportunity of redemption in the starry eyes of a teenage girl, who’d allegedly fought against the vile desires of “this doomed modern society”.
from a shower of speeding bullets that accused me of being a dead weight on the shoulders of whoever paid attention to the debris I left behind, in my quest for absolutely nothing.
I ran from everything.
I ran from everyone.
Until I was stopped by the sight of a marvel… the gray clouds disappeared, and the threatening sky was cleared, and the hovering crows fled away from the scene: another runner was coming my way. Another lost soul, dressed in the same colors I was in, and defied the same rules I did. Another one who was the aim of misfortune, another one who drifted from the harming shots of this dangerous life…
Thus, I stopped running when I found you.
