Chapter 89: Precious in His Sight
“You and I were never meant to be enough,” Asaph gently reminded.
“I know it,” Taweel gruffly replied. “But she was mine to watch over. Mine to love as God loves.”
“Yes,” the Worshiper agreed. “I am no Guardian, but I have witnessed the songs of many hadarim. Members of your order are faithful to love each and every life. But not all who are loved respond to the One who counts them precious.”
“Mine never knew.”
Asaph nodded. “And so your heart broke.”
Taweel’s voice shook. “That is how it feels.”
“Naturally,” Asaph murmured. “Because God’s heart also breaks.”
