In that instant, he realized he’d never let her go, mate or not. He’d give up his wings and heaven for her, a woman he loved but would never belong to him, a woman he could never keep. He’d fall and be banished from the only home he’d ever known, but he’d never give her up. He’d enjoy her and love her as long as he could. When the inevitable happened and she found her mate, he wouldn’t interfere. He’d continue to protect her from a distance.
He loved her enough to let her go, to want her happiness above his own. Even if it killed him, he’d let her move on with her life and with someone else, but the memory of her in his arms would live in him forever.
