Chapter 270: Same Old Story
Bronze wingtips trailed, and hooves clattered against pavement. Taweel’s heart sank, but Tamaes brightened. “Nock! Why are you here?”
“More to the point, why are you still here?” The silver-haired Caretaker eyed Tamaes. “Are you Sent?”
Tamaes waited for Taweel’s nod before rushing away, Omri darting after him.
Once he was out of earshot, Valerian stirred weakly. “He doesn’t know.”
“How could he? He rarely leaves the encampment.”
The Caretaker interrupted again. “Make it quick, Guardian. Before he dims out.”
Taweel gruffly asked, “What happened with Adin?”
“Same old story.” Valerian’s words slurred. “She died young.”
