"Rain? Is that what I felt? Those sudden drops that fell from out of nowhere; is it rain? I must see it for myself... but why... why are my eyes so heavy... and why does my chest hurt. Exactly the part between my ribs, as if someone managed to outclass me in speed and stuck a fresh blade between my ribs. No, that must be impossible. No one can outclass me in speed, no human, no creature, nothing can; at least, not in battle. But... why, does it hurt? And what are those wet drops I feel? I cannot recall I was brought inside, as a matter of fact, I cannot even remember what I was doing and I..." my thoughts were forcefully interupted when I could hear a young girl screaming for her mother. Out of shock, the pain temporarily dissapeared and I opened my eyes and rotated my head in an instant to where the sound came from, the tears that were rolling from my eyes, that I thought was "rain" flew from my face as I turned. "Tears"?

"Mom! The man woke up!" I could hear the girl shout as she ran away while still being confused on the tears on my cheeks. Were those my own? I could not see past the wooden door that was closed the moment she closed it. It was clear that this house was made of several floors, I could hear her running down on the stairs. While I looked at the door, I knew that I was not crying, my eyes were not wet, but salt-water rolled down my face, as if I have just lost the most precious person in the world. I looked back to the door moments afterwards, wondering why the girl ran away and surprised that she was still running on the high stairs. Slowly, but eventually, the sound dissipated and I could hear soft voices mentioning about something like "he's awake" and "he opened his eyes". Could it be that they were talking about me?
If I look to the right from the bed I am lying on I can see the door, but what about left? A closed window is giving me sight of the world beyond it. I can also see a small house located on the other side and I see some animals walking around freely. This must be a farm where I am located, but why such childish curtains? Little bears are painted on it and I see some dolls in the corner, a childs room? It must be, an adult doesn't have such things.

...I should try to stand up. I am being a bother here, I did not ask to be brought here, and speaking of which, how did I come here anyway? But first standing up. That's my first priority, standing up. Turning my head, moving my hands behind me to support me and then move my weight so I can. "Agh!" I could hear myself saying. As if I'm not the same person, I can hear myself grunting, I don't feel the pain, but my body can... and... the room is spinning...

---

"Are you okay, mister?" a childish but friendly voice asked me. I opened my eyes yet again, this time easier, not with the help of anyone, but out of my own free will. I once again, turned my head and saw a little blonde girl sitting only inches away from me.
"W... where am I?" was all I could ask before my head starting spinning again. I instantly closed my eyes the moment after, as if it was a reflex that my body couldn't handle the pressure.
"You're at mom's farm" the girl answered me, with an innocent smile crossing her face. Only moments after she finished her sentence, she pushed some of my hair out of my face to see me more clearly. "Are you OK now?" the girl repeated her question to me. "It is clear that I am dealing with a young girl here, a young girl, not understanding what happened... but, I don't know what happened either" was all I could think of. I opened my eyes once again and turned back to her, and softly asked if this was her room. A small nod was all that answered me.
"I... I'll get... out" was what I could blurt out but I knew that I was unable to move. If I couldn't even keep my eyes open, then moving was out of the question.
"Should I bring my mother?" the girl suddenly asked me, not hesitating a moment when she saw that I was trying to touch the place where it hurted the most. I tried to nod to answer the girl, but I was even too weak to do that. Before I knew it, I lost conciousness yet again.

---

This time I woke up with my head towards the window and I saw it wasn't noon anymore. The sun has gone down and a beautiful full moon was on the place now. "Was the girl still here? This was her room!" I managed to think of as I quickly turned my head, but I saw in the moon light that she wasn't here anymore. "But perhaps I should try to stand up again?" was what gone through my mind and before I knew it. I sat up straight in the bed, not making any hard movement.
I turned my head back left and watched the window once again to confirm it for myself that it was night, and that I could freely explore the house if I had the strength. As if I still wasn't in control of my body I stood up and took a final look at the window.
"A girl" I managed to say when I looked out the window. I saw a teenage girl sitting against a haystack outside. She was playing a harmonica and I could hear it here. It was a song that sounded familiar in my ears, I could not control myself to listen from a closer area. I quickly looked around to find some clothes as I find a small shirt and some pants. I quickly put them on as I walked towards the exit of the room and nearly ran down the stairs while trying not to make enough sound to wake up anyone.
When downstairs it took me only a moment to find the door that was the only obstacle to come outside. As quiet as possible, as I was trained, I opened the door, not disturbing her music.
At that moment I noticed it, the running around was definitely taking its toll on my not-yet-recovered body and I had to use all effort to keep standing. I quickly pushed my back against the wall as I stood firm against it. A third leg, to keep myself standing and listen to the beautiful song she was making with the harmonica.

"So... familiar" I was able to softly speak to myself. I was out of her sight and I could only barely see her from the place I accidentally placed myself, but I could hear the tune very clearly. It was beautiful, and so familiar to my ears. Did I hear the full song elsewhere? This girl was repeating the same few tunes over and over, as if she couldn't remember the rest of the song.
While I was thinking about the song, I clearly forgot that my body was tired and still injured, regardless, I did not collapse, as a matter of fact, I stood firm and it looked more like I was recovering faster and faster. "I am sure I am at the point of moving again" I was able to think of, while I tried to move yet again. But like I was watching from afar, my body ignored my order and just stood firm, my body even stopped breathing for a short moment.
That exact moment I could hear the girl loudly sigh, as if she was tired from the same tunes over and over. "Naturally, I would be annoyed as well if I like a song but can only remember the same tune" I thought to myself, showing that I understood well enough what she meant.
In my bad position I could still see what she was doing as I looked at her. She looked at the harmonica as she sighed again. She had a sad look on her face as she placed the harmonica to her lips again only to create an unwanted tune. Sighing and playing the harmonica is not a good combination. But from the distance she and I were, I could not see the tear she pushed away with her left hand, as she took a deep breath and placed her lips against the harmonica again.

"If, and only if I could" I sang with the song without that I even noticed it. My body ignored my orders of standing still as well, I seemed to walk to her in a very slow pace. She was also clearly shocked that someone was there and perhaps even more shocked that that person sang at the tune she was playing. It was clear that she decided to test me as you play another tune on her harmonica. My body reacted with another complet of the song by answering with, "If I could become immortal" and she tried it again which I answered with the right complet again, "If you could see me..." but it was also the last tune she knew how to play, I apparently made a gesture of, 'all together now' as she played the few tunes after each other, in the right combination.

"If, and only if I could...
If I could become immortal...
If you could see me...
"
Unfortunaly, that was all the tunes she knew, but I knew the song and comfortably continued to sing.
"If, and only if you could see me...
We would stay together...
In an eternal life...
A life filled with happiness and joy...
A life of immortality...
A life of immortality...
"

I looked at her with a friendly smile after finishing the last word from the song. "'If' from the Eyes of the Empire" I told her, with a friendly smile crossing my face.
Her eyes sparkled, she was probably waiting for someone to know the song, to learn her the other tunes that were available. She looked like she was ready to thank me in any way, but 'who are you' could also be read out of her expression. Of course, it could not be denied, the first question she asked was who I am. But the moment she asked, I asked her the same question. A small laugh came out of us as she made a somewhat more stern face, answering:
"I'm Claes"

Confusing :P Congratiolations, you just managed to increase my headache :P

Regardless, thanks. If people like it, I'll write the second part of this when I got some time.

Her eyes sparkled, she was probably waiting for someone to know the song, to learn her the other tunes that were available. She looked like she was ready to thank me in any way, but 'who are you' could also be read out of her expression. Of course, it could not be denied, the first question she asked was who I am. But the moment she asked, I asked her the same question. A small laugh came out of us as she made a somewhat more stern face, answering:
"I'm Claes"

After asking the same question at the very same moment we both shocked each other a bit. The short blonde hair of the girl fell a bit forward and covered her face a bit, instantly she pushed the few hairs away with her hand. It was clear to me that the girl was not expecting to hear the exact same question from the person that she doesn't know at all - not to mention that I sang the song she played. Seeing her beautiful blue eyes sparkle as much as that time is a moment I cannot forget easily, no matter what I do. Seeing someone as excited and as happy at the same time as that is a rare sight indeed.
Fortunately her shocked state quickly dissapeared and a small laugh came into the place. A big relief for me, it wasn't my intention at all to scare her, but I could not control myself. I'm sure I would've mistaken her for a man instead of a young girl like this if I could not see her face. Her hair was cut short and she didn't really look very feminine to me, regardless, her face made much of a difference.

"I'm Claes" she suddenly replied to my question with a more stern expression on her face. Her sudden answer caught me off-guard and I started noticing the pain between my ribs and vision became blurry again. "Was I still not in the condition to walk?" Were the words that suddenly floated through my mind. Because her skills with the harmonica, my sudden singing and the small funny effect we made took my mind completely off my injuries, but the sudden answer she gave certainly did remind me of the pain I actually had.
"Falling to the ground without giving a proper introduction isn't my favorite style of a meeting with someone" was I still managed to think off as I regained my pose of standing. I straighted my back, made a friendly smile crossing my face and finally I moved my lips.
"Claes? That isn't much of a name for a girl" I managed to mention, eventhough knowing that I actually had to use more effort to remain standing. I was also afraid that I would insult her by saying that her name wasn't very feminine.
Apparently, she wasn't insulted at all, as yet another smile crossed her face, showing that she found my remark funny. She crawled up and smiled at me yet again.
"My parents couldn't decide a name, and they were more interested in having an other son than a daughter" she suddenly replied to my question. "But," followed not much after her first sentence, "but, you still haven't answered my question" she told me with a smile on her face.
"My name?" I answered cooly, trying not to fall because I was lacking energy. "It can't be, I cannot lose my conscious in a conversation in-... who knows how long I've been here" a part of my mind screamed at me, trying to keep me concentrated.
"Uh... sir are you..." that was all I could hear before I felt my muscles weaken inside of me and it was only a matter of time before my legs stopped supporting my body.

---

"Uh... sir are you..." was the last thing I heard before I suddenly saw the window where I could overlook the farm from again. "The room of the little girl" came to mind, as I managed to look the other side, the side of the old wooden door. "But yet again I could feel wet spots on my face. As if I was placed in the rain and-..." my thoughts were cruely interupted by a sudden flash of lightning. I quickly turned my head back to the window because of the sudden flash. Thanks to the hard rain, the furious lightning and dark clouds, I was not able to tell if it was morning, noon, evening or night, whichever it was, I was awake.
Being calmed down from the lightning, I managed to turn my head back to the door-side expecting any moment for someone to come in. It was as if someone was standing against the door, even though no sign showed that anyone was there, I just could tell that somebody was there.
"Could it be Claes, the girl I met outside? Or perhaps it is that little girl, I am in her room after all... I wonder where she is sleeping" were some of the thoughts that roamed through my mind. But wherever my thoughts dreamt of to, my mind kept coming back to Claes, the girl with the weird name. "Actually, I know very little about her, I only know her name" were the words that crossed my mind. Before I knew it, I fell back into sleep.

---

"Be careful! It's still hot!" I suddenly heard a girl voice yelling.
"More girls, I already met Claes and that little girl and none of their voices matches this one" I managed to think of before I opened my eyes. Opening my eyes was apparently not the best idea as I got a loud scream of "don't look!" at me and a painful hit in my face which was more than enough to send me back dreaming again. I did managed to see a very littled clothed girl around my age, with blonde hair, but I was not even able to see her face. "For all I know it was Claes who has a cold, but after all this time, I lost my complete track of the time and I am not even aware how long I already am here, in this bed," unfortunately, after the hit in my face, I lost my conciousness again.

---

I woke up yet again watching the window. "It was getting a trusting feeling after seeing it this often. The sun that watched me during the day and the moon that would guard over me during the night with sometimes a little rain to make a small variation. Even though I am sure I can stand up, I don't think I can walk much, but every little movement should be enough to get my back into shape" I managed to think off with my eyes closed as I heard an old door opening. It was clearly not my room, but perhaps the room next to this one.
It took only a moment before I heard a small conversation with a familiar voice. I stopped breathing unnecessary and tried to listen as carefully as possible of what they say. Learning rather fast that it was a boy and a girl, after hearing their voices at least once.
"Claes, did the man already wake up once?" a voice said, it certainly didn't sound like a girl, so it must have been a boy.
"Now, how many people have I met now? The little girl, Claes, the girl that hit me and now this voice. At least 3 girls and one boy? There is also supposed to be a mother, but I have yet to meet her" was everything I could think of. Slowly but eventually I could see myself lying on the bed, slowly recovering from any kind of injuries I had.
"No, after Caitlin said that he woke up and wanted to get out and Laura punched him, he hasn't woken up afterwards" I could hear Claes say. Did I dreamt that I met Claes? Or doesn't she want to say it? "Have you seen any difference in his condition, Alex?" Claes added to the boy who is apparently named 'Alex'.
"At least their parents have a boy, I wonder if Claes was an accident or something" I managed to think off before I got all quiet again to hear Alex's response to Claes.
"No, Caitlin isn't letting me into her room remember? After I broke her aquarium, she isn't letting me into her room again" the boy clearly explained.
"Of course, how could I forget" Claes responded with, she sounded very uninterested in what Alex is saying.
I didn't even have to be careful with my breathing style, without any warning the boy started yelling at her that could easily be heard in my room.
"Of course you forgot! You're barely ever home! I don't know where you're always hanging out, but it looks as if you are trying to avoid Dad and me!" the boy screamed, loud enough for me to hear it clearly. Without any doubt in my body, I automaticly stood up and stumbled towards the door, using every object to keep myself standing and walking, it took several moments before I reached the door and followed the sound of this, 'Alex' who was still yelling at her.
But even though I wanted to help Claes, I never have seen this hall before, except that I rushed outside, but I didn't bother to really look around. Luckily, I could hear where the sound came from, and I could follow that.

The sound came from where I thought it would come from, right next to my room. Left of my room was a room as well, but it was very clear that the sound wasn't coming from there.
Even though the room was only a several seconds-walk from the little girl's room, who was apparently called Caitlin, it looked as if I was taking a long time to reach the room, and was reliefed when I could finally rest my hand on the doorknob. I nearly used all of my remaining strength of turning the firm doorknob to open the door, but even though my first try failed, my second try was successful and I pushed the wooden door open where I could find Claes and this boy named, Alex.

With a loud sound and a wide swing, I threw the door open and quickly pushing my hands to the side of the wall in case I would lose my energy again and would fall to the ground, like last time with Claes.
What I expected to be a young-teenager I found that I was very wrong to see a man standing in front of me who was clearly a full head taller than me and his body looked a lot more impressive than mine, excluding the fact that I'm injured. I quickly took a small view to Claes to see her looking just as surprised as this Alex at me, but in opposite of Alex, she had a small sign of being slapped. Injured or not, it was enough to refill me with enough energy to stand up properly and have a nice-little-talk with mr. Alex here.
Alex's sight went down because he was taller than me and a grin appeared on his face. "Who might ye' be lil' man?" he asked me as he slowly approached me.

After a long time of what I can remember, I felt fear coming up in my body...

Thanks, again.
Naturally, if people will give any comments on it, (if postive that is :P) I will continue to write it. Starting this story was just because I was bored and the second part was of request (or rather, forced :P) of someone else. So it was never really my intention to give much of a shot, it came as a shock that people seemed to like it as well :P

Anyway, your call. Like it? Mention it. You don't? Oh well, then no third part will follow :P

Injured or not, it was enough to refill me with enough energy to stand up properly and have a nice-little-talk with mr. Alex here.
Alex's sight went down because he was taller than me and a grin appeared on his face. "Who might ye' be lil' man?" he asked me as he slowly approached me.

After a long time of what I can remember, I felt fear coming up in my body...

With using all my strength, I was finally able to open the wooden door. Was it that heavy? Probably not, but I didn't have any energy to spare. But if I would use every little bit of energy I had, then it was no doubt that I would fall back to the ground out of exhaustion - and that wouldn't help Claes any little bit. Learning the reason why that 'Alex' was shouting was a priority as well.
When opening the door I expected to see a completely different view than I had in mind. 'Expecting to see some kind of kid-trying-to-be-tough under my age' was what I had in mind, but instead, I found somoene who was a full head taller than me and his arm was about the double of my, or Claes' arm. Even though I can't say I'm muscular, I thought I was a bit better than this.
After my sight of awe was finished about this Alex, my vision quickly went to Claes, only to see that she placed her hand on her cheek and tried to get out of my direct sight. "Why" was the first thing that came to mind, and it was what I wanted to ask as well, if Alex didn't ask something before I did.
"Who might ye' be, lil' man" he asked in a flat tone - as if he never had a proper education. Would Claes, and the other 2 girls talk as flat as he did, then I wouldn't mind, but they talked properly.

"Leave him alone, Alex. He's the injure-" Claes was saying, only to be interupted by the man named Alex.
"Ah, so he is the injured one. Great, then I can ask who he is while I'm at it" Alex answer while he moved his hand through the place where usually your hair would be. Unfortunately for Alex, he was bold and for some reason, it looked as if he didn't seem to notice. He was aggresively searching for hair on the bald head of his with his right hand. Eventually he gave up, and placed full concentration in me.
"While you're at it?" I managed to say in a more painful voice than I actually planned. 'At least the sarcastic tone was still in it' I was able to hear and think, but it still didn't come out as I wanted'. 'I was supposed to be the model of confidence, not as weak as this' I was able to think of, "but I don't think it will be necessary how I talk. If the situation unfolded the way I think it was, I'm so going to kick his a-" while thinking, I was interupted by the answer of Alex.
"You're in the room of Claes, and I don't think you're welcome, mr... eh..." Alex mentioned, clearly waiting for an answer.
"Lince," I mentioned in a more normal voice, apparently getting used to the injured body and accepting the pain. A little smile crossed my face that was aimed at Claes, but her face was still not looking at me. "Embarassment?" was the only thing I could think of, but I didn't know Claes good enough to make an accurate answer for myself. "Why did I come here anyway?" I added to my previous question in thoughts.
"Well then, Lince. I suggest you go back to your bed and leave me here to talk with Claes" Alex bluntly told me with a large grin on his face. He was clearly enjoying the misery of Claes, and I didn't even know who he is. He did seem to take the responsibility of Claes leaving the house, if I heard it right that is. "A brother perhaps? He's too young to be her father, so perhaps it is her brother... or maybe her boyfriend? But does that mean they are living together in the same house with the family of Claes" too many thoughts were floating through my mind. By the intensive thinking I could feel the energy being drained away from my legs once again and I was ready to fall again. "No, not now! Not here!" I managed to think as I grabbed the doorknob again so I wouldn't fall.

"Hey, are you okay?" Alex asked me as he rose his pace and walked at me to keep me standing. He clearly had to bow a little, and that was everything I need.
I grabbed him at the edge of his shirt and moved it him closer to my face, trying to remain out of the sight from Claes.
"Your... relationship with Claes. What is it?" I managed to whisper at him from close range. Hostality could clearly be heard in my voice as I asked him, preparing my left arm if his answer wouldn't be satisfactory for me.
"Friend" he whispered in return, and released his self from my weak - and becoming weaker with a rapid pace - grip. I answered him with a confused look, and I could feel my conciousness falling away again. Using strength to get him near me just enough to push me to my limit.
I closed my eyes and I heard Claes asking in a worried tone, "what happened?" before everything become black before my eyes.

---

Darkness was all I could see. For some reason I could hear people mumbeling around me, but I could not open my eyes to see who it was. I could not concentrate to hear them better either, it was as if I was undergoing a heavy medic's actions. Being tied to a bed, eyes remain closed and they try to keep me still. But, it was different. If I really was at a medic, I would not hear them in mumbeling tones, and I must've heard that I was being moved to somewhere else.
But even though I cannot see, I am not able to move either. Not a finger, not a toe and it even looked like I wasn't breathing either. I was not controlling everything, and my body just lay there... somewhere. "Wait!" echoed through my mind. "It looks like I'm not breathing"? I took a final check and it really didn't look like I was breathing. I tried to listen to the mumbeling voices again and I could suddenly hear people screaming to each other. As if they were worried about me. "But why would they be? They don't know me" I managed to think of, until I got back to the point that my body wasn't breathing.
"But, if it wasn't breathing, then why could I clearly think? Why could I hear myself? Why can I even consider that I am not breathing? Is it because I lost my life and am now waiting until Lady Aceci is going to send someone to come and get me?" were some of the thoughts that flew through my mind.
While I was under influence of my mind, I could suddenly see a little light and I saw my body from a different view for the first time.

I was lying on a bed and 6 people were surrounding me. I could easily recognize the bear of a man, Alex, and I had no trouble recognizing the stranged-named girl, Claes either. Claes had the arm of Alex pushed against her as she looked at my apparently, lifeless body. I could finally see the little Caitlin, who's room I was sleeping in there too. She was looking at me, not knowing what was going on. Her blond hair was still short and only two pony-tails could easily be recognized from her. She was looking very childish as usual, and as I could remember her.
The third girl I could see, was different from the others. In opposite of the little girls not knowing- and Claes' sadness, the girl was looking at me like she didn't care. Her long blond hair reminded me of the girl who I saw a bit of before I was hit in the face and lost concious again. Finally, I could see her more properly and her body was so very different from Claes, who've I met earlier.
As a matter of fact, in opposite of everyone in this house I met, she looked quite busty and seemed to care a lot about her outgoing-appearance. The clothes she wore were the complete opposite of Claes as well. "As if it was a story. The not-knowing, the shy, the outgoing and the strong one" I managed to think of as I looked through them.
The clearly, older woman among them must have been the mother of the 3 girls. She was busy using all kind of medic equipment on my body. But if I already stopped breathing, it wouldn't mind anymore.
As I looked closer to the mother, I could see a boy sitting there on the ground, looking at me with a unknown look on his face, like the younger girl, Caitlin. His short blond hair reminded me of myself when I was his age. My black hair was as short as his and while he looked unknowingly, I usually looked uninterested, the expression was not too far apart from each other.
My sight went back to the mother, who was dressed with a white colored jacket and a brown skirt. Her color hair was also completely different from the 3 girls, her brown hair was very remarkable among them, seeing as they were all blond. She also looked a lot more feminine than most of them, even though the girl named Laura looked quite feminine as well. It was mostly Claes who looked very non-feminine.
"What the...? What am I thinking about anyway?" shot through my mind all of a sudden as my vision instantly went to my suddenly moving body. "Was I alive?" went through my mind, but I was wrong. The mother was trying to use several techniques to keep my breathing, but they didn't seem very useful. Not was it just hard to get a clean look at my face because of my long black hair which constantly fell back in front of my eyes, it was also a nearly useless action as my body was already cooling down.

"Let me help!" Alex suddenly blurted out, that clearly shocked me. He ran at my body and tried to help the mother in every way he could. For some reason, I could feel the places they were touching, but I was already here for awhile. "Does that mean I could be saved? Or does this mean it already is too late? If it was already too late, I wanted to thank them at least, and I-..." I was suddenly cruely interupted by a light that shined in my face. A light that was asking me to come near it, a light that was asking to follow it... 'death?' I asked before I started moving towards it.
I walked passed the bed and could see 4 dissapointed faces who were trying to keep my body alive. Only the busty girl named Laura and the younger boy didn't seem to care much. The boy had either no idea what was going on, or didn't care. "I hope that he doesn't care" flew through my mind. "The less people who are sad about my demise, the better it is" answered something in my mind as I stretched my arm, to reach the light that was calling out for me.
As I stretched my arm, I could feel freedom and a relaxed feeling surrounding me, a feeling I yearned for a long time. From the moment that Jade and I left our home-village, I yearned for the free feeling. It was something I missed in my life, something I couldn't deny, something I couldn't live without - and now, it was in litterally in hand reach.
I tried to stretch my arm a little further as I could feel the feeling slowly taking over my weak body that was getting weaker every moment as I reached my arm.

"Lince!" I suddenly heard someone screaming, that clearly surprised me as I pulled my arm back again. My body and head quickly turned to where the sound came from, and I could see Claes standing near the edge of the bed. Whispering something that was not meant for anyone, but I could clearly hear it. "Does that mean I am no longer here in the lands of the living?" I asked myself as I tried to listen what she said.
"Before... you leave... learn me... that song" I could hear her whispering to me.

I looked back to the light that was ready to kindly embrace me and give me all the freedom I want. Within a second of time, I turned my back to the light once again and walked t my body, confident that I wouldn't die just yet.
The moment the light noticed that I was not planning of leaving just yet, it suddenly dissapeared, not ready to show itself again for many years... or that was what I hoped.

I felt that the expressions on the faces of the bystanders were looking more happy to my body as I lay there. As if I was showing any sign of life and- I was cruely interupted by a large yawn of myself. "Was I bored?" I asked myself as I looked at my hand, that was getting a bit transparant. "I'm dead, for sure" I mentioned to myself with a little smile crossing my face.
I closed my eyes again, and placed my head on the edge of the bed, the opposite side of Claes and lay there. Hoping that I could wake up again, watching out of the beautiful window, looking across the farm, hoping to see Claes sitting there again, waiting for someone to teach her that song.
Before I knew it, darkness surrounded me again, but this time, I felt confident that I would wake up with my head turned to the window.
