Chapter 160: Grim
“Come with me.”
Tamaes jogged after Taweel, who strode over to Valerian. Newfoundlings surrounded Adin, who cheerfully announced, “And here’s Taweel. He teaches sword.”
The youngsters stared up at the grim-faced warrior.
Tamaes quickly added, “My mentor is kind. See? Even yahavim love him.”
One boy bashfully asked, “Is he hungry?”
“Are you?” Tamaes knelt with Adin and signaled to the little angel. “This is Omri.”
Manna and antics distracted all of them, so Tamaes missed what Taweel said to Valerian. He was completely surprised when his mentor hauled him up, tossed him over one shoulder, and carried him away.
