Chapter 233: Weight of Responsibility
Tamaes slipped to his mentor’s side. “Why has your face turned to stone? Is the danger so great?”
“Who can say?”
Touching Taweel’s arm, he said, “Only God. And you recently entertained His Messenger.”
“Not here. Not now.”
“Later,” he agreed, hoping for soon.
A purple wing drew around Tamaes’s shoulders. “Who will you guide this night?”
“I am with Bern; Adin has Taji.”
Taweel said, “I have much to oversee. Keep an eye on Adin for me.”
“Valerian will be with us.”
“Even so. Stay close to your brother.”
Tamaes whispered, “Why?”
Shaking his head, Taweel gruffly answered, “Please.”
