Chapter 239: Help is Near
In gentler tones, Taweel repeated, “Show me, Taji.”
The boy plucked at the edge of a limp wing. “It hurts to move,” he whimpered.
Slowing to a smooth glide, Taweel grimly assessed the damage. Somehow, an enemy dart had shattered, leaving dozens of slivers snagged in the sensitive inner folds of Taji’s trembling wing.
Taweel’s sympathetic groan was answered by a worried squeak. Lifting a hand to catch the little passenger riding atop his head, he asked, “Omri, can you help?”
With soft croons and delicate fingers, the yahavim set to work easing Taji’s pain—one sliver at a time.
