“Maybe just a different type of spirit?” Rishi suggested.
“Not sure but they had a glow about them,” I answered. I was feeling very confused.
I felt the same kind of warmth from earlier sweep the area around me. But this time it felt different. I not only felt the warmth, I could feel the warmth as it moved and even breathed. I glanced nervously to the side knowing that this feeling would place it directly behind me. I turned my body around slowly in preparation for the person I knew I’d see. My breath caught at the sight of the young man leaning against the door frame. He was tall with dark hair cut short and was wearing jeans with a white t-shirt. He wore combat boots and as my gaze moved upward, I noticed a set of dog tags resting around his neck. He crossed his broad arms loosely as his dark brown eyes met mine and a small half smile tugged at the corner of his mouth showing a small dimple in his right cheek.
“You are right about us not being spirits. We’re angels,” he offered as he stood up straight and slowly made his way around the bench.
I turned back around following his movements until he was standing directly in front of me. He held out his hand.
“I’m Alex. Your guardian angel,” he said.
