Part 8

Satoshi

I never thought I have to come to this. The rain tonight has really helped me to make a more pitiful scene. I wondered if he had turned in already, or would he be drowning his anxieties in drinking after hearing Mother’s words. My knees are starting to numb from kneeling in the cold. If I keep kneeling, Father would eventually see me. I have confident that I still have some weights in his heart.

Feeling some warmth next to me, I turned around – you fool, why are you here? It’s cold and wet, why do you come to torture yourself?

“You – not following my – order anymore?!” I didn’t expect my voice was trembling so much, not sure if it’s because of the coldness or worries…..

“Your Highness, that commander’s seal, we have to go to war, right? If so, how can you not count me in?!” Even in this cold night, his eyes are still filled with burning heat.

“Sho – ” I sighed, but remained solemn. “If – I go to war, I will – bring you – for sure, so, you – don’t need to – kneel with me now. Just go back – ”

“Worried about me? I am stronger than you think!” Despite of saying so, he actually stood up. “Fine! I won’t let you worry about me. I – will stand under the roof over there – and wait for you.” He pointed at the far side. “If you fall down, you’ll need someone to hold on to you – ”

Was it tears or rain? When he turned around, I saw something sparkling in his eyes. His leaving took away the only warmth from me. I bite my lips, not wanting anyone to see my shaking…..

I didn’t know how much time had passed, I asked the guard to send interview requests to Father again and again. If Father was that firmed, I don’t think the guard dared to send anymore requests for me. But now I had made six requests, so I think there might still be a turning point.

And he, stood at a place where I could see at the corner of my eyes without the need to turn my head, not moving a bit.

After kneeling straight for such a long time holding the commander’s seal, my body seems to be shaking out of control. Everything started to become blurrier and blurrier. But I still didn’t believe I would fall! Father, I have to wait till you agree to see me!

“His Majesty Our Lord summons Prince Satoshi to be interviewed at the side hall!” Finally, I heard the guard reading Father’s summon to see me. All my efforts are worth it.

Putting the seal away, I tried to get up using the ground as support, but realized that my two legs were like without sensations at all. Just when I stood up, my whole body fell forward.

“Be careful!” I looked up. It’s really him! “Your Highness, let me help you – ” This time I didn’t refuse. Seeing the many steps of stairs ahead of me, I really was not certain if I could make it on my own. When I first touched him, he jumped as if he was struck by lightning. He must be shocked by how cold I was. He looked at me full of concerns but I tried very hard to smile back just to show him I was fine, although I really wasn’t. He shook his head and then continued to help me walk towards Father’s palace.

He helped me to the door of the palace, but I made him wait for me outside. I must see Father alone. I slowly walked inside trying hard to keep my balance. I saw Father sitting in front of his desk reading some reports.

“Good Evening, my Lord, my Father.” I was about to kneel before him but he stopped me.

“You are excused. I heard you had been kneeling outside all these time. Tell me, on a raining night like this, what do you want?” Although Father’s tone was strict, but if he would say something like that, I know that’s hope.

“Father, I volunteer to lead our soldiers to fight the invading Basarians.” I still knelt down before Father to show my sincerity. “I had led our military for a while, but had not really made any significant achievements. I hope, Father can give me a chance, to proof my abilities to Father, and to defend the wrongful accusations against Mother. I hope Father can grant me this wish! I tried hard to endure the chills coming from my body and looked at Father firmly.


Sho

Despite standing under the roof, the wind that came with the rain still chills me to the bone. And he is kneeling down in the open. What kind of will power made him able to persist?  Worries for him gradually made me ignored other sensations, other than my heart is trying hard to beat out of my body. I have to bite my teeth with all my strength in order to stop myself from running over to him. Seeing him stood up, I rushed over immediately, using my warmth to bear his cold.

I really don’t understand. This person in front of me can always go beyond his limit and does the unbearable?! You are only human! How could you protect everyone you want to protect by yourself?!

Seeing him went inside, I knew he would accomplish what he wanted to do. But looking at that thin back of his, I couldn’t help but holding my fists tightly and leaning against the cold wet wall in a daze…..

He finally came out, tired and worn out, but his eyes are glowing. I knew he had succeeded. He didn’t need to tell me, I knew. This war is his to fight. I hold him tightly, so he could put his weighs on me. I wrapped one hand around him, and put the other on his stomach, hoping Nino had already made the necessary preparations back in his palace.

“Thank you – ” His voice was trembling. I didn’t stop, just want to get him to some place warm as fast as I can.

“No need to thank me. As long as you stay alive – that’s good enough.” I really hated why they built this palace so big. I glanced at him in the light of the hallway – his face had become even paler….

“Quick! Come inside! I have already started a fire!” Nino was already waiting at the door of the palace. He didn’t seem to be surprised of Satoshi’s actions, but blamed him for not caring about himself, yet again. “Change out his wet clothes! Sho, you need to do so too. You can’t stay wet like this!” This year Nino and I have become very good friends as well. We also call each other by name if there are no other people around.

“I am fine. Look after him first! I’m afraid – ” While taking off his wet clothes and touched his skin by accident, I felt that his temperature was scarily hot! “Nino, he is burning up!” I saw that he is losing consciousness. “Your Highness! Wake up! You have to stay awake!”

He slowly opened his glazing eyes. “Cold – ”

“Don’t worry about his fever for now – ” Nino put a wet cloth on his foreheard. “Satoshi-kun, tell me, what are you feeling on your legs?” Nino asked worriedly. I looked towards where Nino’s hands were and noticed he had already torn open Satoshi’s pants and exposed his knees. They were all purple and the muscles around them were abnormally red.

“How -- are his legs?” My heart skipped a beat.

“He knelt in cold and wet for too long. I’m afraid there will be long term consequences.” He rubbed his knees gently with a warm cloth, then applied an acupuncture needle. “Satoshi-kun, does it hurt?”

Satoshi weakly shook his head. His skin had turned pinkish from the fever. I didn’t understand what Nino was doing, but I continued to change out Satoshi’s wet clothes. “Nino, is there anything else I can do?”

“I wish he does feel pain on his legs! I need to apply treatment right away, otherwise they could be paralyzed. I’ve asked the servants to prepare the medicine for his fever. You go and change into some dry clothes and then get on the bed and hold him – ” Nino saw my astonishment and somewhat bashful look and stomped angrily. “What were you thinking? I’m afraid he won’t stay still because of his chills. I can’t apply acupuncture if he keeps moving. You help me hold him still and keep him warm!”

I then came to understand what Nino was asking. I just grabbed some of Satoshi’s clothes to put on and jumped onto the bed.

Oh, I hope Prince Satoshi will be alright! but LOL at Sho for being bashful at such a hectic time xD. That was cute.

While I understand Prince Satoshi's mother's desperation to be recognized within the royal family; I can't sympathize with her when she's so ready to make her only child a scape-goat for her own good. I hope she'll come to her senses before she loses everything.

Please have all the fun you can have in Hawaii! <3 *so excited*
