Hiroshi-San turned to me as he looked at the stars and said,
"I heard once that Alpha Prime saved you. Are the rumors true?"
"Actually, I wasn't in the world at the time of the incident, I wasn't born yet, my mother told me about the events."
"It all happened eighteen years ago."
18 years ago, before the continents separated, Pelena
A month before I gave birth, the enemy lineages had gradually increased their attacks.
My father, one of the three chefs, came to see me at that time.
He came to my house. When my father entered the house, he approached me with a happy expression,
"Pelena, how are you, are you and the little one okay?"
"Dad, we're fine, it's just a little hard to walk, but we're still fine. What about the kingdom, will they send help?"
"Unfortunately, the King cannot help us because of the distress he has experienced with the bloodline of destruction."
"But he said he would help every bloodline!"
"Girl, we all know the King promised, but the problems he deals with is enough for him, he's dealing with all three lineages. We need to give him a break."
"Then I need to talk to him."
"No, you're not going anywhere with this situation. There's enough trouble out there."
"But our people need help!"
"I understand how they feel, but we've come up with a plan for it."
"We're thinking of moving some of the group to East. In this way, most people can be more comfortable and safe."
"Dad, don't be ridiculous, separating our people only makes us weak. And for generations, we haven't left our land. It would be a great shame for our land, to our ancestors!"
"Pelena, we're not leaving our land, we just need to send some of us to safety until help comes. We have to do this to keep our bloodline alive. Just like our ancestors wanted us to."
"But, Dad, this is really ridiculous. We shouldn't send anyone... Wait a minute, you never talked to me about our village issues after I got pregnant, and now all of a sudden you're talking to me about village issues."
"Uhhh, I, uhhhh..."
"Don't tell me you want me to go with them."
"Pelena, please I am asking you not as a chef, but as a father....."
"I don't want to leave our home!"
As my father was about to say something to me, suddenly one of the villagers entered through the door,
"Chief, our village is under attack!"
"What, the Caparros bloodline again?"
"Yes, but there are more of them this time."
My father quickly made his way to the door,
"Call the other two chiefs. Get the children and women to safety."
"Dad, let me come too."
"No, you're not coming, you'll stay here, you are still pregnant, out there is too dangerous for you."
"But I have to help, I want to help."
"Pelena, No means No."
My father used his magic to carry me into the room and locked my door,
"You'll stay here until we get this under control."
Even though I knocked on the door many times, my father ignored me and left the house. Because my father's powers were so strong, it was impossible for me to open the door. I looked around for another way out, but there was no way out. I was so mad at my dad, so I started punching around.
After a short time, I fell asleep.
When I opened my eyes, the door was open. I didn't know how many hours I slept, all I knew was that I wanted to go out and help people.
It was night when I went out. It was pretty dark. There was no one around, which was pretty weird. Even in places that were normally full of sounds, there was no sound. When I turned to my left, I saw a little girl lying on the floor.
I ran right up to her. I took her in my arms and turned her face towards me to understand her condition. I stopped in shock. Her face looked just like me, but different. As I tried to figure out what had happened, a burning horse-drawn carriage was coming at me without a horse. Somehow I couldn't move. When the car approached, I covered and tried to protect her.
As the carriage approached, I closed my eyes and waited for it to hit. At that moment, someone jumped in front of me and used his arrow to shoot at the wheel of the carriage. After the wheel broke, the carriage changed direction, and we survived. In our village, there was only one person who used arrows, my husband. I said to him,
"Honey, this child is injured, I need your help."
"Seinch, Hey! Didn't you hear me?"
After I couldn't hear from my husband, I turned my head to him and saw that he was covered in blood. All of a sudden, he fell to the ground, right next to me. My hands and feet began to tremble with fear,
"Hey! Are you ok? Come on! Please talk with me!"
He looked at me and smiled,
And suddenly I opened my eyes, sweating so bad. My husband was in a corner of the bed, shaking me to wake up.
"Oh, thank God. It was just a dream."
"Hey, are you okay?"
"I had a terrible nightmare."
By handing me a glass full of water he said,
"Here, drink some water."
After I finished my water, I put the glass on the table and turned to him,
"They were attacking the village this morning, What happened?"
"We managed to repel the incoming enemies, but we have several wounded people. And we're sure they'll come back. But don't think about it for now, please."
"I'm fine, I'm just a little confused."
"Did your father told you about his opinion?"
"Yes, he did. But it seems ridiculous to me."
"I know how ridiculous it sounds. But in this case, there's nothing we can do. I understand that you want to stay here, but if we don't get people out of here who might get hurt, the situation will be difficult for both of us.
In addition, there will be soldiers to protect them alongside women and children. You don't have to worry, we just have to protect what is ours just for now."
"I really can't belie-"
"Are you okay?"
"I think it's coming."
"What's, what's coming?"
"What do you think it could be? The child!"
