Chapter 238: Little Things
Up and up, Taweel threaded his way through the stream of angels still circling the earth. Higher and higher, until only stars filled his view. Then he asked, “Are you hurt?”
Taji lifted his face and staunchly replied, “Only a little.”
“Are you frightened?”
Taji hesitated, then quietly repeated, “Only a little.”
Valerian pulled up nearby and curtly announced, “We are all here.”
Scanning the hadarim of his encampment, Taweel said, “Fly high. And sing.”
Dorum led out in song of thanksgiving, and Valerian got everyone moving in the right direction. Taking up the rear, Taweel gruffly said, “Show me.”
