Chapter 244: Dual Purpose

Dorum met Taweel and Tamaes just outside the encampment. Catching sight of the bronze thread gleaming against eight new tunics, he asked, “Loris’s handiwork?”

Taweel grunted.


“In the next watch.”

Dorum hummed. “That would explain our guest’s arrival.”

Tamaes asked, “Who?”

“Someone to lead our evensong.”

With a soft gasp, Tamaes hurried ahead.

Holding Taweel back, Dorum said, “He arrived shortly after you left, and he made no mention of Selection.”

Taweel’s heart began to hammer, for a blue-haired angel stood with his arm linked through Adin’s.

Dorum’s voice dropped. “Asaph told me he came to hear Adin’s song.”

    Asaph may have come to hear Adin’s song, but I don’t think he heard it – not if this means “to bear witness to his song.” It must be that Adin would not sing with Asaph, or could not sing… maybe Asaph hoped Adin would do so later but he never did? Because if he had sung with the witness of a Worshiper, he would have been healed by it…but clearly he wasn’t healed.

    Maybe Asaph came simply to listen to Adin singing, just as Koji has his eye out for the one who’s not genuinely singing in *his* story. Either way, Asaph couldn’t have had anything good to report from this visit. :(


    • I don’t always let the reader see everything that goes on behind the scenes. I’d rather have you curious than bog down the story with every little thing.

      You’re quite good at reasoning, which is a useful authorial quality. Do you write? : )
