Whether they are the ghosts of the people you’ve loved, a prince, a princess or a queen from a faraway kingdom, an angel and a demon who are more than willing to stay with you until the end of time, no matter what form they take, their love for you will always be the same. Perhaps, even more, their love will not compare to ordinary humans, for their love is out of this world.
