Chapter 161: Provisions for the Journey
“Fear not!” Tamaes waved to the youngsters from over Taweel’s broad shoulder, hoping to reassure them. In lower tones, he said, “You have startled them.”
“Valerian can explain.”
Tamaes tried to wriggle free, but Taweel’s grip didn’t loosen. “Will you explain?”
Taweel only grunted.
He tried again. “Where are we going?”
“Wherever we end up.”
Although it wasn’t much of an answer, Tamaes was intrigued. This almost sounded like the outings they took when he was newly apprenticed. “How long will we be gone?”
Taweel answered an entirely different question. “God has provided eight newfoundlings. Adin will not be lonely.”
