I thought it was pathetic to see Graecito hesitating earlier, but this was a natural physiological phenomenon. I kept getting sore without even realizing it. Oh, it’s ruined.
“Princess, why do you think you don’t have a mother? I’m here for you.”
It was an abrupt remark, but I was not such a fool to the point that I didn’t know what she meant. I looked straight at Serira. I knew that she was here for me. Still…
“But you are not my real mother.”
No matter how close I was to Serira, this was true. A nanny was a nanny, not my own mother. I was not in a position to call her a mother officially in front of others. Well, I didn’t mean to hurt her, but sometimes it was not a good idea to spout the truth, just like now.
I should have not said that. For a moment, Serira was speechless.
I looked at her in the eyes. Was she angry?
I should sew my mouth or something. I kept saying things I didn’t mean. Oh, I was thinking about what to do with this troublemaker’s mouth, and suddenly, her soft hand clenched my hand. It was Serira’s hand.
“So you don’t like me?”
How could I dislike her? She’s Serira!
Serira pulled my hand and held me in her arms. Then, she patted my head. It was the hair she touched in the morning. Well, it’s a mess right now.
“I’ll tell you when you’re a lot more grown-up than now, princess. I’ll tell you everything about the beautiful and lovely lady who was your mother.”
The whispering voice was friendly. I was just surprised. Serira was paying attention to it too. Well, the lady was my mother. I already knew who that royal lady was, but in fact, all of that all came from what I heard in different ways, so I was excited that I would get to hear about my mother.
“Yes. Please tell me later!”
I wanted to emphasize one more time, but I couldn’t because Serira suddenly hugged me so hard. No matter how much you love me, I was surprised! I know how you feel about me, but it was true that it was embarrassing.
“I don’t know where these balls came from.”
A whisper in my ear is ever so soft. I felt tingly for nothing.
“I came from another world.”
“Then are you an angel?”
What angel. I was an office worker in my past life. All I learned at my company was how to tell if my superior was having a bad day. Of course I didn’t think it was pointless. Everything I learned at that time is good for me. I’ll use it someday if I remember it.
Her warmth warms my body. No matter how much winter trees heat me up, as the weather got cold, my body was colder than I thought.
“You know…I want Serira to be happy.”
Serira is too hot. I think it’s going to burn.
It was nonsense, but at the moment I felt like it was really true.
“I hope Serira is the happiest person in the world. Then I’ll be happy too. That’s what I want.”
I raise my head on her sobbing voice. I frown my face.
Oh, my dear mother.
“Don’t cry, Mom. why do you cry whenever I say something? I feel like I’m the one who made you cry…”
I want Serira to be happy. Really, that’s what I want.
