Chapter 275: Covering
Amusement drenched Adin’s tones. “I was naked, so I hid.”
Tamaes glanced at the bunched raiment in his hand and reasoned, “You could cover yourself with your wings.”
“Mine ache.” He uncoiled from the shadows. “Will you hide me in the shelter of yours?”
“Of course.” Tamaes propped his sword against the wall and beckoned with both hands. “But what of your mentor? Valerian’s wings should be your shelter.”
“But you’re here.” Adin leaned into his brother and whispered, “Of course it would be you.”
“Dress,” Tamaes ordered.
Adin laughed hollowly. “Extinguish your light, and darkness will cover me anew.”
