Cina wakes up with a throbbing pain in his head.
The memories come rushing to his head like a tsunami. He inhales and exhales, staring at the ceiling in a daze.
Because of Kresi, he had to go to Qeshaya. He changed into a child and then, he, Adira, and Kresi were rescued by Noras.
He was in Noras' palace. That's where he met Ari again.
"Why…" Everything feels like a joke to him. He widens his eyes as the embarrassing memories replay in his head. "Why did I call her Mother?"
No, he was literally begging her to become his mother.
"What was wrong with me?" Cina gasps. "I kept calling her Mother."
Not only that, but he had also tried to make Adira accept him as a child. That's not the end of his shameful deeds. He even lost to that nameless boy.
"He made me cry." Cina sits up, holding his head in horror. His skin pales. "I lost to a kid."
This's an experimental test for reading assistance in case.
