Chapter 206: Big Brother
“Adin! Adin!” Eight boys abandoned their practice weapons to crowd around the teen.
Tamaes hung back, but Adin dragged him forward. “Look what I brought!”
Gasps and shy glances were followed by a swift migration as newfoundlings hemmed in Tamaes. Questions came thick and fast.
“Is he Tamaes?”
“Are you our big brother’s twin?”
“Did you bring Omri?”
A small boy with lavender curls fit his hand into Tamaes’s and asked, “Can you stay?”
“Yes, he’ll stay!” Adin’s voice rang with authority. “Valerian sent me to fetch you! We’re going to welcome Taweel and Tamaes with songs, so line up!”
