Chapter 53: Lost in the Crowd
Taweel wasn’t the only angel drawn in by the impromptu song. Loitering on the crowd’s fringes with eyes downcast, he listened intently. The Worshiper grieved for the plight of Creation in a way that made Taweel wonder if he’d also mingled with mankind. He reminded God of His promise. He pleaded for a redeemer. He sang of a faith that would become sight.
As the final note faded, Omri chirruped, and Taweel glanced up … meeting the Worshiper’s waiting gaze. With a sleepy smile, the angel nodded a greeting. Or maybe it was goodbye. Because he turned and drifted away.
