“Why are the stars fading?” the boy asked.

“Adin!” shouted Taweel. “Rise! Now!”
Black darts sprayed upward, and Taji’s wings crumpled. As the boy tumbled, Adin lunged after him, catching his outstretched hand. Tamaes’s stomach dropped as Adin hastily wrapped his wings around Taji before they crashed into the dense forest below.
