Chapter 127: In the Darkness
Tamaes didn’t understand why his mentor insisted on carrying him … until they dropped into darkness. The boy’s arms quickly clamped down around his mentor’s neck. Braving a shadowed alcove was nothing compared to facing his first night.
Taweel murmured, “Fear not.”
From his precarious perch on the warrior’s shoulder, Omri squeaked and held out his hand. Tamaes rescued the little angel, cradling him close to his chest while Taweel carried them far from home.
All the while, his mentor explained, “Galaxies are smelts for heaven’s Forgers.” He spiraled into a nebula-wreathed star cluster. “Their order sings with the constellations.”
