Chapter 88: Not Alone
Asaph slowly reached up and touched Taweel’s left ear.
The Guardian knew he had no reason to be ashamed of the heavy silver ring that pierced his lobe. Most hadarim who’d served in Time were pierced, for the world had Fallen. Still, he flinched.
“Is the grief still so fresh?” asked the Worshiper.
Taweel lowered his gaze. Self-conscious. Ashamed. Every guardian angel held out hope that their charge would come to faith. He wasn’t alone in his disappointment.
“You did all you could,” Asaph said gently. “For the one you refuse to forget.”
Taweel’s jaw tightened. “It was not enough.”
