His heart lurched; he would recognize those golden ginger locks anywhere.“Exton!”Disbelief struck him, but dispersed a second later, as the shock of hearing her say his name dissolved into pure joy.Once more, he had his miracle.“Thank you, Lord,” he whispered, overcome. He shook it off a second later. Exton took off, heading for her. “Aerie!”Every step over the rocky dirt and the stilted grass brought him closer to her seemed too surreal. After the weeks of missing her, it seemed more like a lifetime had passed, yet nothing had changed.

Exton crashed into Aerie, already grasping for her as the force of their collision nearly toppled them over.
