==> more and more in love with him. He gets an apartment, and keeps talking to John as he grows up, and one day John flies up, and asks him to marry him. He sort of times their souls together, and it lets them grow old with each other and when Dave dies John takes him up to the sky with him and they both look sixteen again, the age John introduced himself, so they can be together in the skies until the end of time. (Cheesy as fuck, but I had to).
Dave is a little boy whose parents died and his brother has to work all the time, and John is a wind god who noticed him while Dave was sitting on the rooftop. John takes a liking to Dave, and he starts to minorly get his attention, like sort of whispering in his ears that things will be okay, and sometimes Dave thinks the wind dances with him. Eventually John gets the nerve to take a physical form and introduce himself, and Dave is like whoa, and they talk, John comes and goes and Dave falls==>
