“I meant … why did you offer me this place?”
“My alcove needed brightening.”
There was no denying that raiment had an inherent glow. And for the first time, it occurred to the Guardian to ask, “Why?”
“Some answers belong to God alone.”

Loris’s smile widened. “For that answer, you need only ask a Weaver.”
