On our way to Uprichit, my last look at the royal palace seemed peaceful .
Although it was an impulse-based trip, it was only after passing Bureti that I felt proud to leave the Imperial Palace .
Since Bureti was a small country, we left in a day and arrived in eastern Uprichit . The next day, we would reach the Hamel river at the southern port and return to Agrigient .
Thus, I suggested that Ahin should return to Shertogenbosch; he did accept my suggestion, but he looked a little sad .
Did he think I would ask him to come to Agrigient in exchange for the hospitality he showed in Shertogenbosch?
Although I wanted to show him around, I didn’t want him to come to Agrigient with me . I knew no place other than my palace!
“When Ria was away, I managed everything with my brother and that emperor . Did you know?”
“Yes, I know . Thank you . ”
Valer stood beside me with a tired face . I smiled and hugged him .
“I asked if you knew?”
“Yes, I knew . ”
I didn’t forget that Valer had cared for me on the trip until my relatives entered the picture . We were always together when we were going around the city, but Valer was in charge of the two men after meeting my aunt or grandfather .
Valer shrugged at my smile .
I knew that he was asking me on purpose, but I was really grateful, so I let him off the hook for once .
“So, did you like your vacation?”
Instead of answering his question, I just nodded .
Valer smiled at my answer .
“I guess I knew . ”
I wasn’t a depressing person, but sometimes people, especially me, can be pessimistic . My current situation made me feel like that .
“Maybe I shouldn’t have been born . Then my mom wouldn’t have complained about having and giving birth to me . Maybe I wasn’t destined to have a mother or father by my side . ”
How could I feel alright when I wasn’t even welcomed happily into the world? I knew that, probably why I never asked about my mother so much .
Honestly, even my plans for stopping dad from hurting me seemed useless . This life seemed to have a story that continued with the more information I wanted to know . When I realized that I loved my dad but couldn’t trust him, all my thoughts turned dark .
I would always be alone .
“But it doesn’t matter now . ”
Looking back, I wasn’t alone .
Just like Assisi was my family, Valer too was my family . Sometimes they were like the younger siblings I had to care for; there was also Cito and Sanse, my Silvia and Ferdel, along with Serira .
Woah, now that I had come to think about it, I had so many family members .
Why did I think for all those years that my dad was with me? I was a real fool .
When Valer seemed confused, I said .
“My dad loves me, too, and so did my mom . ”
Right, it was okay even if they didn’t try for me out of love .
However, I knew that both my parents loved me to the core .
“I know, I know now . ”
When I realized that, I had never been happier .
“I think that I was fortunate to be born for them . ”
“You just realize that now?”
Valer asked with a smile . I smiled after seeing him .
“I want to see dad . ”
Right . I missed my home after wandering like a lost dog .
At my words, Valer nodded .
“Yeah . ”
