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.

    Yep… just what I wondered, back in the comments to 270. :(

    Ah, Adin. You’re an angel… you can actually hear God’s voice. Are you so angry that you’ve put in spiritual earplugs?

    • I decided not to tell. There are too many reasons why both wanted and unwanted children don’t have the chance to grow up. But every one of them is cherished by God … and counted precious by their Guardians.
