Chapter 39: He Needs a Name
“What’s his name?” asked Weft.

“Because he looks to you.”

Weft giggled, and with the crook of a finger, he coaxed the little angel over. Nonsensical chatter. Gentle praise. Murmured suggestions. One must have pleased the yahavim, for he brightened considerably, then darted into the vines overhead to unwind a length of gleaming thread from his abandoned wreath. Weft used it to tie his long, yellow hair into a high ponytail before making an introduction. “Taweel, this is Omri.”
