Chapter 36: Sympathy
Every time Taweel closed his eyes, he’d catch the whisper of wings. He never peeked because he had the impression that his benefactor didn’t like his task. But once Sent, the tiny angel would have no choice but to obey.
So the next time the little manna-maker landed on his shoulder, Taweel murmured, “Do you miss your spinning?”
The yahavim froze.
“I miss ….” Taweel’s voice cracked. “I did not wish to abandon my task either.”
His visitor hummed uncertainly.
Taweel sighed wearily. “I am sorry, little one. The threads were pretty.”
The warrior was ill-prepared for what happened next.
