Chapter 168: And It Was Good

Omri tilted an elfin ear and peeped.

Taweel heard it, too, and grunted. “He has found us. But what is that?”

A faint scrape of metal upon stone brought back memories. He touched the hilt of the sword Tamaes had brought to him so long ago. Cradling Omri to his chest, Taweel started walking. “Tamaes?”

“Here I am!”

His apprentice trundled awkwardly into view, his spear hooked under his arm, its tip dragging along the ground. Taweel should have have scolded Tamaes for mistreating a weapon, but the spear’s importance dimmed. “A sword?”

Tamaes nodded.

“Good.” Taweel smiled. “Very good.”

    I’m imagining teeny Tamaes trying to carry a big sword (even though it’s probably actually his size) and it’s so cute!

    • Tamaes has grown quite a bit since the first time he brought a sword to Taweel. : ) This one’s much closer to his own size, though as Taweel remarks … he’ll need to grow into it. It’s heavy enough, he needs both hands to lift it.
