Chapter 195: Hard to Imagine
“I want to train,” Tamaes said.
“I cannot teach you to love … any more than I can teach myself to unlove.” Taweel flicked his apprentice’s breastplate, right over his heart. “We were made for this, Tamaes.”
“What if I fall short?”
Taweel shook his head. “You cannot.”
Tamaes’s boots scuffed the earth. “But I cannot imagine it. I do not understand!”
“This girl. You love her.”
“Even though she is gone?”
“And you will never forget.”
“So it seems.”
Tamaes frowned. “Even though it makes you sad.”
“Your turn will come,” promised Taweel.
