Chapter 142: Four Cots
“This way! Hurry up!” urged Adin, who hauled on Taweel’s arm.
The boy darted ahead, then stopped before the centermost structure. “This is ours!”
Hadarim were raised in tents, but not because they needed sleep or shelter. Thanks to humanity, Taweel better understood how these retreats gave a mentor and his apprentice time and space to bond.
At Valerian’s invitation, Taweel entered. Tamaes slipped inside and stuck by his side as they peered around. “For us?” he asked eagerly.
“All of us,” Adin confirmed.
Taweel was pleased with the arrangement. The boys and their brotherhood would remain intact.
