Chapter 222: Lead Me Not
Tamaes felt a tug on his little finger and found Jacinto at his side. The boy asked, “Protectors?”
“Yes.” Nodding toward the warriors who were unpacking quivers of arrows, various bows, and targets, he explained, “We older ones will train with them.”
“What about me?”
Tamaes ruffled Jacinto’s lavender curls. “When you are taller.”
Going up on tiptoe, the boy asked, “How much taller?”
Adin sauntered past, Taji riding on his shoulders. “Only one way to find out! Let’s ask!”
“Follow us!” urged Bern, who loved dares.
As Jacinto chased after them, Tamaes pressed his hand over an uneasy heart.
