Chapter 139: For Keeps
Training was essential, so the return journey became a practical lesson in evasive maneuvers. In other words, a game of chase. Taweel rushed his apprentice, who squeaked like a yahavim before tucking his wings and dropping out of reach.
‘He loves you.’
Purple wings shivered, and Taweel’s pursuit pattern faltered. “I know it.”
‘And are known.’
And there it was. Taweel could devote himself to another young life, but not at a distance, unseen and unrequited. Tamaes sought his gaze, heard his voice … and loved him back. God had given Taweel a child who could never be taken away.
