“Of course, ma’am. What would you like?” the waitress asked.
“I’ll take your classic Char–”
The sound of the restaurant’s main door opening stole both of our attention, and as soon as the second door opened the air went completely still. The ambiance in the waiting area instantly shifting from relaxed to potent.
My eyes shut tight at the feeling of a recognizable warm energy blanketing me. Breathing slowed as heavy footsteps grew closer and closer to the bench I was sitting on, rapidly echoing in and out of my ears.
He was here.
He was too close.
I desperately wanted to jump up and run as far as my heels would carry me… but I couldn’t. His energy kept me firmly planted. His presence overpowered any movement I thought about making. There was no way to escape him.
Why could I never escape him?
He was speaking to me but his words were inaudible. I was literally drowning in the mere sound of his voice. The effect of not hearing it for so long was overwhelming. The flashbacks of it rumbling lowly in my ear as he took me to a place that could surely counter heaven began to replay over and over in my mind.
I hated the fact that I could make out that one word. He was the only person who called me by that name and hearing it fall from his lips sent an almost unbearable squeeze to my heart. In my mind the walls were closing in on me but my eyes were still shut tight, making it hard for me to decipher between reality and my imagination.
My God, was I not breathing?
The urgency in his voice set off alarm bells in my mind and I exhaled the breath I didn’t previously realize I was holding. My eyes were still closed but that didn’t stop the tears from rolling down my cheeks…
