Chapter 289: Empty Words
Adin faltered at the sight of Taweel, which created the opening Nock and his brothers needed. They seized Adin, dragging him backward.
“It’s not my fault, Taweel!” Adin struggled in their grasp. “I never meant to hurt him!”
He silently plucked Tamaes’s sword from Adin’s hand.
“I know what you’re not telling!” he accused. “About how your wings tremble in tune to the beat of one child’s heart! How they rule you and ruin you!”
Taweel turned his back.
“Leave Tamaes to me, and he’ll never be pierced!” Adin’s voice hoarsened. “I’ll save him!”
Still, Taweel spoke not a word.
