Chapter 284: Torn Apart
With a resounding snap, the branch broke, and Zeke vanished into the river. Ethan’s whole being vibrated with a longing to follow, but God had not released him. He needed to wait.
Blight turned to him with a sly smile. “Follow, and you Fall. Stay, and your service ends. Either way, you’re free … friend.”
Zeke surfaced, floundering against the undercurrent. Ethan glanced around, but the path along the river was empty, and the Caretakers weren’t in sight. Zeke needed a miracle. But his life was in God’s hands. “I will wait,” Ethan whispered.
‘Child of light, you may go.’
