Title: One Dark Night

On a dark night, lit by stars hiding momentarily behind the occasional cloud, a child is born. The child has a destiny. To be a son, a brother, a best friend but never a father.

The angel watching over the birth has witnessed this many times but for some reason this child troubles him. He knows better than to interfere in his Father's will but for the first time ever he wants to reach out, embrace the child, hold him close, curl his wings around the child and protect him from the pain and cruelty he knows life has in store for this tiny, beautiful child.

But he knows he can't do that.
