Chapter 149: A Friend in Need
Tamaes slipped through Loris’s door behind his mentor, then beckoned to Adin. While Taweel and Valerian caught up with the Weaver, the boys cornered their friend.
“Help us?” Tamaes begged.

“My arms,” Adin groaned. “They hurt.”
“And my hands.” Tamaes showed blistered palms.
“What can I do?” the Weaver’s apprentice asked.

Weft quickly caught on. “Stone basins are heavy.”
“Too heavy,” grumbled Adin.
Tamaes added, “Please?”
Their friend’s eyes shone speculatively. “Do you need help with your hair?”
