Chapter 241: Without Apology
“Right here.” Adin stepped through the tent’s entrance and leaned against his spear. “Did you need me?”
With a soft grunt, Taweel beckoned him over. “Do you have any injuries?”
“Scuffs and bruises. Nothing serious.” Sitting beside Taweel on the cot, Adin leaned over and whispered, “Forgive me, Taji?”
The boy smiled sweetly. “You kept me safe.”
“Only after I put you in danger.” Adin’s gaze locked with Taweel’s. “Forgive me, Overseer?”
Taweel used his wings to pull him and Tamaes close. Taji giggled at the sudden crowding, but Taweel couldn’t smile. Not with Gabriel’s warning fresh in his mind.
