Chapter 52: Heaven’s Decorations
Worshipers were made for song, and they often led their angelic brethren in worship. Taweel hadn’t planned to go anywhere near the circle. How could he tune his heart to praise when it was heavy with grief? But this Worshiper wasn’t in the circle.
He stood in a small garden surrounded by candle-trees, his wings outstretched. The zamarim were sometimes called heaven’s decorations, for their wings were exquisite. Beauty and harmony, light and music. This particular Worshiper had deep blue hair feathering away from his forehead like exotic plumage.
And his song was sad enough to pierce Taweel’s heart anew.
