Chapter 129: A Heavenly Guard
Tamaes whispered, “Is he a Forger?”
“No. The Fourfold are like us.” Taweel offered his sword on upraised palms. “Guardians, but not of humanity.”
The boy couldn’t take his eyes from the oncoming angel’s leonine face. “What do they protect?”
“Many things,” replied the Fourfold in a deep, echoing voice. “Stars and seasons. Doors and dreams. Thrones and dominions. Powers and principalities.”
Awe shivered up and down Tamaes’s spine.
The angel accepted Taweel’s blade, then crouched before Tamaes. “Fear not, apprentice. My brothers and I are here to serve you.”
With a tentative smile, Tamaes shared, “I have a brother.”
