I know, I know! If you live in the Northeast at all, you're making nasty gestures about now. Spring? But Mother Nature just dumped two inches of snow on us! Arrgh!
Despite it all, Spring has arrived. Mother Nature can pull all the pranks she likes but it won't stop the temps from finally warming, the robins and the hummingbirds and the butterflies from returning.
March 20 is the official first day of Spring! To celebrate, I'm part of the Rites of Spring blog hop. Thanks to Jessica E. Subject and Heather Long for putting it all together.
First anythings in a relationship can be so magical. For immortals, in more ways than one! For Death and Azrael, it took an eternity (well, almost) to finally have a first one-on-one conversation. Both so busy with their duties as soul gatherer and patron angel of the dead and dying, they never bothered to look past the other's exterior.
Not until Azrael's promotion put them in daily contact did he work up the nerve to ask her out for a drink at The Nethers, the inter-realm bar. He'd always had a thing for her - at a distance. Once he got up-close-and-personal, he was smitten forever.
Death always assumed because Azrael took his duties so seriously, and never took time to have fun, that he was a stuffed shirt. She mistook his shyness for aloofness, his professionalism for coldness.Their first personal conversation revealed a much different male than the persona he projected. It shattered all her assumptions. Once the walls between them came down, they saw each other for who they truly were. Just like mortals, all they needed to do was open up and communicate.
