He had been to battle many times and faced death itself eye to eye and didn't flinch, but this was different. This was magic! He trembled slightly and threatened to drop her from his arms as she changed. Something deep inside him told him not to drop her, so he held on and fought against his first instinct to pull away. When she had changed his eyes were wide. Even after going through the portal and talking to a cat, this was the first time he had seen her use her magic. It was amazing, scary, and set his imagination on fire! "WOAH!" After his exclamation he was speechless with wide eyes. Her dark wings were as beautiful as her sweet face. Her natural face had more of an innocent and vulnerable quality, but for as old as she seemed from her speech, she must be anything but innocent he thought. With his hands under her he couldn't help but feel her wings against his arm and hand that supported her back. He let himself concentrate on how the strange body part felt against his skin.
