Chapter 94: Grafted In
Milo ambled over. “Hey, Ethan. I didn’t get a chance to thank you earlier.”
The young warrior demurred, “I was Sent.”
“And I’m glad you were.” Milo was well-known to everyone in the Hedge; he served in the same Flight as Prissie’s Guardian. “I had an eventful first day on the job.”
“Are Grafts often in danger?”
He nodded. “But I was Sent, and I couldn’t be happier!”
“Oh, for lots of reasons. Not the least of which is coming up this Sunday.” Turning to address those gathered, Milo announced, “The Pomeroys have invited me over for Sunday dinner!”
