Chapter 25: Six Fingers
Messengers carried messages. Protectors protected. Each order did their part, but Taweel only knew his own. “Weavers weave cloth … sew raiment.” He searched his mind. “And you have six digits.”
Loris held out a hand, displaying the secret to every Weaver’s dexterity. It was as if the thumb and first two fingers were mirrored, doubling each hand’s usefulness. Having two thumbs allowed Loris to stitch with two needles at once. “If you’re curious, I could mentor you.”
Taweel grunted and turned his face to the wall.
“On second thought,” Loris said in serious tones. “We’ll apprentice you to Weft.”
