Chapter 279: Cheated
Tiny creaks. A faint whine. Although the sounds whispered warnings, Tamaes pushed them aside in order to confront Adin’s dismay. “Who deceived you?”
“I loved her.” Adin’s face twisted—pain, rage, disappointment. “He made me love her, and then He crushed my hopes. I did not wait millennia to be wasted on a life unlived!”
“Nothing is wasted,” soothed Tamaes. “Your love will mark her existence for all eternity.”
“Keep your false hope and lies!” Adin pushed away. “I’m better than this!”
Tamaes winced as a reedy note slipped off-key. Omri?
No. The sound was coming from Adin’s furled wings.
