Tamaes hung back, sitting beside Asaph’s apprentice. Heartsick and silent, he watched eight youngsters scatter as their names appeared under their mentors’ hands.
“Why do your wings weep?”
Glancing at the serious-faced teen in Worshiper’s raiment, Tamaes said, “My mentor loves children.”
Taweel’s farewell song reverberated through the encampment, celebrating the new bonds being formed.
Tamaes explained, “We will not have more newfoundlings here.”
Puzzlement put a crease between dark brows. “How do you know?”
Glancing in Adin’s direction, Tamaes found his twin watching.
Adin winked and waved.
Tamaes dredged up an answering smile. “I will make sure.”
