nd then scrutinised me before sighing in relief.

”Im glad to see you are not hurt anywhere. Did it go well with the Guardian? ” he asked.

I nodded slowly. Did he expect me to return all along? So did that mean that they did not mind me staying with them?

”Hmmm… I… I have… a few things to say, ” I said.

”Then we should go back inside. Its chilly and the snow is starting to fall again, ” he replied with a warm smile.

We all went back inside and Matt made hot chocolate and brought the cookies as well. While taking a sip of my hot chocolate, I noticed that everyone was watching me.

”Is…. there something weird on me? ” I asked.

”Not at all, we just wanted to see if you liked it, ” said Matt.

”Huh? I…. do…, ” I replied.

”Thats great then, ” he said.

”Hmmm… I… I should properly introduce myself. My name is Solar Van Croft, fifth daughter of the Van Croft household and I am officially dead in Nervenia, ” I replied.

”Huh? Dead? Eh??!!!!! ” they all exclaimed.

”Hmmm… Well… someone tried to kill me… and made though my family did not find my body… they still declared me dead… I don have anywhere to go for the moment… so hmmm.. if possible… is it okay for me to live here…? I can do the cleaning and cook too… But I don have money…., ” I said.

”You… You must have gone through a lot, ” said Wyatt.

They all looked at me with a sad gaze, ”you don have to do anything, just stay here. We are the only ones who live in this house and we are protected by the Emperor so no one will hurt you here, ” added Matt.

They all nodded in agreement.

”Thank you so much! I promise to repay you once I get back on my feet, ” I said.

”No need to thank us, its a given that we help those in need. Especially when so many things happened to you, ” replied Code.

They were kind people.

”But how…..could your family declare you dead without properly doing the research? ” asked Cian.

”That… I guessed you would not know but… Im known as the accursed child of the Van Croft… It would benefit them if I were… to disappear, ” I said with a sad smile.

”Ah! Im sorry, I did not know, ” replied Cian.

”Its fine… I want to move on from all this anyways. I was granted another opportunity at life so Im going to do my best this time, ” I said.

They all looked at me with bright eyes, ”you are strong, not many can say such things in your situation, ” replied Matt.

”I just had enough of everything. These past few years were quite tiring. I tried my best to please everyone and forgone my own life. But now I want to do things for myself, and follow the path that I want, ” I said.

”Thats the spirit! ” replied Wyatt and Code.

”With that said, this girl is going to be training together with you. She wants to join a guild but as you must have realised she is a wimp. I will need your assistance on that. The guild selection is at the end of January and by then, I will make sure that you all reach a level that I approve of. Also, from now on my name is Lumière, lets get along kids, ” said Lumière.

We all nodded. Then Keira showed me around the house and gave me some of her clothes. I took a bath and went straight to bed. Those were Matts orders. To grow stronger, I needed a healthy body, so I had to get proper rest. And so I slept once again.

In my dream, I followed a path of light and reached a garden. All the faes and fairies floating around called it the Garden of Ulysse. As I followed them around, I saw a tall man with short curly golden hair wearing white and golden clothes and who had the purest and most warm smile ever. His eyes were of beautiful green and he had such a holy aura around him that I thought that he was an angel.

”Welcome to the Garden of Ulysse, Solar Van Croft, ” he said in a soothing voice.

”How… do you know my name? ” I asked.

”Ive been wanting to meet you for a long time. But first, there is something I must do, ” he said then hurriedly walked towards me before hugging me warmly.

He then put a crown of flowers on me while crying, ”it must have been tough for you, ” he said.

This man was truly strange however I knew that he only had pure intentions. It was just based on my gut feelings but I somehow felt like he was not someone I should fear or be wary of. There was this warm and bright aura that came from him that made me feel secure. So I wanted to trust him.

”Well then, shall we have some tea, precious Child of Light? ” he asked.

I nodded and then followed him to a table that appeared out of nowhere. There were tea and a variety of biscuits on it. I sat down opposite him and took a sip of tea. It had a light and sweet fragrance that transported me through various universes. And that was when I remembered Lilis mothers life advice, he tea of someone reflects that persons soul so if the tea tastes good then the person is likely good as well. Therefore, that man was not evil.
