Chapter 281: Sheathed
Ethan was frantic to do something. Shout a warning. Grab hold and pull Zeke to safety. Or attack Blight, whose litany of encouragement accompanied the boy’s climb.
But God stayed Ethan’s hand with a word. ‘Wait.’
Although it broke his heart, the guardian angel sheathed his sword. Was this another time when his charge needed to taste the consequences of his actions? If so, he wouldn’t do it alone. Unstrapping his sword, Ethan placed it on the ground beside Zeke’s bag of scavenger hunt items and started to climb.
If Zeke went into danger, his Guardian would be with him.
