Chapter 174: Ready or Not
Adin demanded, “What are you ready for?”
“A test.” Tamaes couldn’t dredge up a smile. “I must face our enemy.”
“A Fallen?” Adin’s voice skipped an octave.
Valerian reacted more calmly. “This is the natural progression of training.”
“His is ready,” Taweel repeated, gripping Adin’s shoulder. “And I will be with him.”
Adin squirmed under the warrior’s hand. “If you say Tamaes is ready, then he is, but …!”
The mentors exchanged a long look before Valerian asked, “Did you have something to say, apprentice?”
Linking arms with Tamaes, Adin exclaimed, “Shouldn’t twins face their first demon together?”
