Loris brought balm and bandages, and Omri pressed manna between Taweel’s lips.

His injuries were miniscule. An aching wrist. A scored calf. Missing skin on two knuckles. Tamaes and Weft fussed overmuch, but Taweel submitted to their tender mercies with head bowed and eyes closed. Because a different pain pierced him deeply. And he needed their comfort.
