This was a good dream.
Michael loved these moments with him, it was a kind of peace she hadn’t know before she met him. She tried to stay even as she felt the dream shift, she just wanted to stay. She wanted to hear more about a lifetime where they told stories. Where they weren’t fighting, where there wasn’t bloodshed, and war, and endings. She looked up, and instead of the face of a child, she was looking into his face as she remembered him last.
“Lucifer.” That one name held so much meaning to her, so much emotion.
His gaze softened, a gentle smile on his lips, “You loved me first. Even Before Lilith.”
Michal felt the truth of those words in her soul. She reached out and touched his cheek. They had lived their very first life together. How many lifetimes after that? Did they always find each other? She wondered if he was really here with her now, or if this was all truly a dream.
In that moment, Michael decided she didn’t care if it was real or not. She pressed her forehead against his.
“I’ll find you again.” She swore. “In this life or the next. I’ll find you.”
Michael felt it when she left the dream, her mind pulling her to the surface of consciousness. No matter how hard she fought to stay in that dream world with him, she was slowly pulled into the waking world. For the first time in a long time, Michael didn’t startle awake and some of the knot that had been inside her chest lessened.
You have work to do, old one, get out of bed.
She grimaced. Worms.
