Chapter 211: In Common

“I am Bern,” said the boy whose knobs of hair made him look like a cub. He pulled his silver-haired friend forward. “And this is Taji.”

“I can unfurl now,” Taji shyly shared. “I was last.”

“And well worth the wait!” exclaimed Adin, who leaned into the alcove. “He is sunlight through ice, a yellow diamond set in silver.”

Tamaes blinked at the analogies. Had Valerian taken Adin into creation after all?

The boy with lavender curls said, “I’m Jacinto. Can you be our brother, too?”

Adin beamed. “He has to be! Because I’m the one who named you all.”

  1. May as well do this here and now! The boys’ names are tied to their appearances.

    Bern (old German) means “bear.”
    Taji (Japanese name, pronounced TAH-jee) means “silver and yellow.”
    Jacinto (Spanish name with Greek roots, pronounced ha-SEEN-to) means hyacinth, a purple flower.
