Chapter 105: Seize the Sky
“I cannot fly well.”
Setting Tamaes down, Taweel promised, “I will not let you fall.”
He still hesitated. “Loris said that once a newfoundling finds his wings, he is given to a mentor.”
“If you teach me to fly, I will be Sent away sooner,” Tamaes reasoned.
“True,” Taweel repeated.
Scuffing the floor with his toe, the boy said, “Maybe we should wait.”
The big Guardian crouched. “We were made to fly. Your wings must be restless.”
“Yes,” Tamaes whispered.
Taweel gruffly declared, “I would never withhold this joy from you. Much better to share it while we can.”
