Chapter 31: Now I Lay Me

Taweel gazed up at the busy yahavim, whose strands were steadily taking shape. “Is it a nest?”

Weft frowned in confusion. “What is that?

Something of earth, unknown to this child of heaven. “A place where young ones sleep when they are tired.”


Taweel folded his hands under his cheek and closed his eyes. “This is how humans enter dreams.”

“Humans build nests?” Weft asked.

The warrior patted his cot. “Something like this, soft and safe.”

Tapping his fingers on the place Taweel had claimed, the boy asked, “Is this your nest?”

Maybe so. He ruefully answered, “For now.”
