Chapter 227: Private Audience
What was one of heaven’s princes doing on an archery range? Feet bare. Wings furled. Vulnerable to stray arrows. Taweel quickly stepped between his unannounced guest and a potential misfire. “You should take more care, Gabriel” he said gruffly. “Our apprentices are inexperienced with the bow.”
“Lend me the shelter of your wings, Taweel.”
He lifted his wings higher, creating a canopy.
“This would be a good time to enfold.” Gabriel smiled and stepped closer. “We need to talk.”
Without question, Taweel stretched up and out, then twisted his wings together, cocooning the archangel in a swirl of purple light.
