I could just watch him go away in the middle of the snow storm; I couldn’t say even a word. I lay again beside the bonfire; the coldness was still covering my body. I wanted to go away, but I was trapped in this dirty cave. I needed to find a town soon, I couldn’t stay in this forest, it was so dirty and wet. I fall asleep soon, waiting for the sun to wake up and light the entire valley. As the sun appear in the sky I woke up and start walking out of the cave, the snow still cover all the forest, and the wind was still cold, but now the sky was visible and able to fly.

I made my wings appear, I turn to look at the sky and start flying, and the sensation of being in the air was so magical, I could feel free, with my own limits. I start searching for the closest city, I spend all my day in that, in the night I saw fire on the horizon, I fly there, I landed in the center of the city, between shadows. No one was in the streets, everything was also closed, this looked like a ghost city. I start hearing music from a little bar, I enter there, there was only a man there, I turn to look at him, I needed to find a room.

“Excuse me Sir, I’m searching for a place to stay but everything is closed”

“Well, I have 2 available rooms here, but you need to pay lady”

“But Sir, I don’t have any money…”

“Then go away and find somewhere else!”


“Go away!!”

Then suddenly someone spoke, he ask what was going on, I turn to look who he was, Ryusen was standing on the stairs, he smiled to me when he saw me. And then he return to his serious face in a second.

“This girl wants a place to stay, but she don’t have money to pay!”

Then his words surprise me, he told the man I was staying with him, he came down and grab me hand, I just follow him without knowing what to say. He guide me to his room, it was small but I didn’t care.

“Thanks…. I really appreciate what you are doing for me”

He smile and said that he doesn’t matter, also that he would go out for a while, he get out of the room, I search for the bathroom, inside there was a small tub, the toilet and the sink. I undress myself, my skin was soft and pale, I turn on the water to fill the tub with hot water, meanwhile I cover my body with a towel, when the water fill the tub I enter slowly, feeling how my muscles start relaxing slowly.

I close my eyes as the hot water cover my body and warms it. I stay there for a long while, I start feeling a bit dizzy so I decided to get out of the tub, I stand up beside the tub, but just before I could grab the towel someone open the door. I turn to look but I freeze when I saw who he was. Ryusen was standing infront of me, and I WAS NUDE! I try to move but my muscles didn’t answer me. He quickly close his eyes and turn. I grab as fast as I could the towel and cover my body.

“You may turn now”

I said still speechless.
