Chapter 133: Finishing Touch
Tamaes’s excitement over his new armor redoubled as Taweel worked the straps into place, then added a finishing touch. “Do all Guardians do this?” the boy asked.
“Who can say?”
“Did your mentor to this?” Tamaes pressed.
“Yes. Every time.”
“More than once?”
Taweel huffed softly. “I grew.”
Realization dawned. “We will be back?”
“Many times.” Brushing aside stray flecks, he offered the slim dagger. “Now you.”
Tamaes’s tongue peeped out of the corner of his mouth as he slowly scratched his name inside Taweel’s new breastplate. He liked knowing the inscription would always be there, over his mentor’s heart.
