Chapter 220: Guests from the Fringes
Tamaes’s attention was caught by a group of cherubim who spiraled to a neat landing in the middle of the encampment’s training ground. Recognizing the Enclave’s weapons master, he hurried to greet the warrior. “But … why are you here?”
“Your overseer invited us.” Cherubim scanned the surrounding tents as they unslung assorted weapons.
These visitors looked ready for war. Or a skirmish. Tamaes brightened. “Will you train with us?”
With a nod, the cherub offered a crossbow. “You have grown, Tamaes. Your mentor thinks you are ready to try your hand. Shall we see if your aim is true?”
