Chapter 197: Mutual

Heaven’s light washed over Taweel and Tamaes, lending strength to weary wings. They climbed to dazzling heights, a shout on their lips, a song in their hearts. And God welcomed them by name.

Tamaes asked, “Can we hurry?”

“Do you know the way?” Taweel checked, for they were still some distance from their own district.

With a short laugh, his apprentice arrowed away, making for a distant spark of color.

Catching up to his apprentice, Taweel squinted at the oncoming blaze. A swift, solitary angel. “No one flies this high except Messengers and ….”

“ … and those who rejoice!”

  1. I was wondering about the meanings of the names of your characters. You have told us that one of Milo’s names means “messenger” but not about the others. What does Adin mean, and what about Taweel? Or Weft or Padgett or Jomei? I am extremely curious as to the meanings of all of the names. Would you mind compiling a list of them? It is not necessary to get all of them, but some would certainly be nice, especially the more unique names.
