Chapter 258: She Believed

When Tamaes opened his eyes, Taji was standing guard. “Good news?” he asked.

“The best kind. Adin was Sent.”

Taji brightened. “I remember when my turn came.”

Tamaes sat forward. “You … you are not pierced.”

“My joy is full.”

A pang lurched through Tamaes’s soul. “I want ….”

“We all do.” Taji shyly asked, “Would you like to hear? About her?”


So he shared stories from the trove treasured up in his heart, whispering about a wisp of a girl whose faith was more beautiful than apple blossoms.

“Her name?” Tamaes asked.

Taji’s smile widened. “Celia Mae Pomeroy.”

    • Yes, you have to scoot back one more generation from pink-loving Great-Grandma Mae. Celia Mae Pomeroy would have been Grandpa Pete’s grandmother … and Prissie’s Great-Great-Grandmother. So in a way, her middle name is a family heirloom! ♥

    I was confused about this at first, because why would a female ancestor of Prissie’s be a Pomeroy?

    But I see now. Taji now has a new task, because his charge has died. But she died Faithful, thus his joy is full, and there was no need for him to be pierced.

    And her death was when she was older, after she’d married the Mr Pomeroy who was Grandpa Pete’s grandfather, and been the mother of the Mr Pomeroy who married Great-Grandma Mae.

    Got it!
