Chapter 296: Punctuality
The Messenger waved his hands. “Rest. Please. It sounds like you need it, after … everything.”
Tamaes sagged back and closed his eyes. What did it matter if a passing Messenger overheard?
“I’m Milo, by the way.”
Taweel grunted, and Tamaes cracked an eye. The Messenger had joined them. He sat quite close, his gaze expectant, as if waiting for something. An introduction? “I am Tamaes,” he offered. “Apprentice to Taweel.”
“I know.” Milo smiled crookedly. “My mentor says I need to work on my timing. I like to fly fast, so I sometimes arrive earlier than I’m supposed to.”
