Chapter 225: Hierarchies
While the newfoundlings collected stray arrows, Taweel showed them how to position their wings to shield their backs. Tamaes’s trio stuck closest, which reminded Taweel of something. “Did you give up your game of Fourfold with Tamaes?”
“No,” the boys chorused.
Taweel pointed out, “You were with Adin instead.”
Jacinto said, “Tamaes is our Fourfold brother.”
Taji nodded. “He will return to us.”
Something prompted Taweel to ask, “What about Adin?”
Bern patiently explained, “Adin is our leader.”
“Is he?” Taweel frowned thoughtfully. “Is he a good leader?”
“He tells us stories.”
“He hears our songs.”
“He takes us along.”
