Chapter 216: Counterbalance
“This isn’t like you!”
Tamaes kept his eyes forward, his feet moving. “In what way?”
Adin talked faster. “You trust me. We’re friends!”
“We are friends. But I cannot leave.”
“But I just proved you could!” argued Adin.
“And I just pledged Taweel my support. Would you make my promise a lie?”
Adin jumped in front of Tamaes. “Then promise me something.”
“If I can.”
“I saved up this secret to share with you. Keep it for me?”
Tamaes slowly countered, “Stay with me. From now on.”
Adin pulled his twin into a fierce embrace. “Of course,” he promised. “Always.”
