Chapter 287: Guard and Guardian

“Taweel will be furious,” Adin repeated. “But when he finds you gone, maybe he’ll follow. We’ll be together again.”

Tamaes hardly knew how to respond to these impossible promises to drag him further into darkness. But he was spared from answering when Adin’s hand clamped over his mouth.

“The hunters!” he snarled.

Adin was still shaky on his feet, but he lunged for Tamaes’s sword, wheeling when a Fourfold exploded into the chamber. Hooves raised a din; bronzed feathers banished every shadow.

“Nock,” Tamaes called weakly.

But Adin took a stand over him, exclaiming, “Fear not, brother! I’ll protect you!”

    Oh dear, Adin’s definitely a crafty one…

    Our other recently-seen newfallen hardly seemed to know how he’d reached the place where he found himself, but even when injured Adin is still quite capable of trying to turn everything that happens to his own benefit or advantage.

    Broken, broken… :(
