Chapter 103: No Fault, No Blame
“Where is Adin?”
Tamaes flexed his injured hand. “They began with swords today.”
Taweel grunted. “Missing out?”
“Yes.” After a thoughtful pause, he added, “And no. I was Sent.”
The boy shrugged.
With another grunt, Taweel said, “We could have our own lesson.”
Looking up, Tamaes asked, “Is it my fault you are lonely?”
The Guardian’s eyes widened. “Apprentices usually ask when they can have boots and a breastplate.”
“You told Adin before. I know those answers.”
Taweel sighed. “Guardians wait, meet, and part more than most. Try to be grateful, Tamaes. Regrets are unkind.”
