Chapter 15: Hiding Place
The Weaver’s home was nothing like the tents used by hadarim. Stone columns and archways. Sheer curtains as vivid as angel wings. Open ceilings overhung by flowering vines. And the promised garden, where water trickled into the basin of a modest fountain. Parting the hangings in front of an inner alcove, Taweel’s host indicated a sturdy cot. “Most avoid this area for the very reason you seek it. May our oddity be of comfort.”
High walls and heavy vines didn’t bring darkness into this corner of heaven. But it was shade.
Taweel eased past the Weaver into the shadowy niche.
