Chapter 236: Little Boy Lost
Taweel hit the ground running.
Jeers littered the heavy stillness of the old woods, which reeked of demons. The burly warrior battered his way past a few stragglers, homing in on the clamor of battle. “Adin!”
“Fear not, Taweel! I am here!”
Adin made an arresting sight. Fearless. Flawless. Ferocious. He fought with a smile on his face, as if daring his enemies to approach the crumpled bundle of gold between his feet. Taji.
Valerian dropped through the canopy of trees in a rush of green wings, spear flashing.
Adin made room, and they formed their Hedge. Three against twenty.
