I felt his coldness as we stood in the room and he held me in his full embrace. After a few minutes, with his arm around my back and the other around my head holding my cheek to his chest (he was that tall), I thought I had warmed him because the chill faded. It wasn't until he left and I started shivering that I realized I hadn't warmed him, but he instead brought me down to his temperature. I don't think it was an exchange. I don't think he absorbed my warmth. I think he simply dissipated it, like an anti-coagulant for some kind of energy that should have remained intact and integral within me.
