Chapter 196: Homesick
A new restlessness stirred in Tamaes’s wings. Omri noticed first. The little angel flitted to his shoulder and crawled under draping layers of fiery light, pushing and peeping as if in answer to the subtle shift.
Tamaes drew up his wing, creating a pocket for his friend. “Is this a new game?”
But he couldn’t camouflage the truth from Taweel. Once his mentor’s attention fixed on something, it was a force worth reckoning.
Taweel asked, “Why does wistfulness whisper through your wings?”
Tamaes summed up his longing as best he could. “I think … I am ready to go home.”
