Chapter 175: Testing
When the dream ended, Tamaes stayed where he was. Tucking his hands behind his head he gazed quietly toward the white tower rising above from the flowers that grew up all around them.
Taweel sat up, glancing around until he spotted Omri. The little angel was flying circles around a honeybee.
“Adin was ….”
Purple eyes slanted his way. Taweel asked, “Sad?”
“Facing a Fallen will test your skills, not the bond you share with Adin.”
“Yes, I understand. And I am prepared.”
Taweel sighed. “But?”
With an apologetic glance, Tamaes said, “I do not think Adin agrees.”
