Serah's gaze softened. "Hey, we don't have to talk about something, if it brings back bad memories. But I'll tell you something. You can decide if remembering someone makes you sad, or happy. No matter where that person is now, or why. What has to stay with you are the memories that make you smile." Her way of grieving followed that kind of philosophy.

"The problem with my brother is that the memory of his death fills me with anger," Valdyr sighed. Then hesitated. "Horknath hasn't told you why, I suppose?"

Serah shook her head. "He never did, and I respected your privacy enough not to ask any more than one time", she answered kindly. "You don't have to talk about it, if you don't wish to."

Valdyr hesitated. But he smiled softly to her. "Well. I'd rather wish you knew that part of me." So he told her the same story he had told Horknath long ago.

Serah listened to the whole story, quiet for once in her life. She let a moment of silence pass when Valdyr finished to tell her about his story; it felt important that he had wanted to share it with her, even if she honestly felt powerless in that moment. She wasn't the best, when it came to comforting someone. Cracking a joke to brighten up something, yes, but it didn't feel appropriate right now. She just reached for his hand, without saying anything.

Valdyr smiled kindly and squeezed her hand gently. "Well. This is why you won't hear me talking my family a lot from now on," he said. At least, he seemed relieved.

Serah nodded. "Yeah", she answered simply, with half a smile on her face. "Well, it's not like you will hear me talk about mine either. We're even!", she added, taking a deep breath. "Well, let's get some food here. I am kinda starving", she chuckled. She didn't let his hand go though.

Valdyr smiled at her, and nodded. He quickly called a waitress to order for food. Do you wish to jump at a specific later moment?

We can jump to them returning to the palace if you wish! Serah probably merrily blabbed all along the road back about that one time when she had stolen all the pants of the royal guard that was allocated in that one town in the West (including their spare ones), and how much she had laughed when all the soldiers had had to run outside in only their underpants. Aah, good times.

Yes ! Valdyr had actually laughed a whole lot about that story, and even had to wipe a few tears off the corners of his eyes. "By my beard. How come you never wished to do that ever again?"

Serah grinned happily, her hands behind her back. She didn't have any pockets to stick them into! "What makes you think I stopped?", she asked mischeviously, her eyes glinting. "I never said goodbye to my pranks, you know!"

"... Please tell me you haven't done any that was this big since we've been travelling together," Valdyr said with a smile, arching a brow.

Serah bit her lower lip, stifling a laugh. "I could tell you. But I would lie", she sang, arching a brow herself. "I may have hidden some of those pesky nobles' pants and changed them with cute skirts. When we did that one job, you know", she snickered.

"Serah, come on," Valdyr chuckled. "Oh, well. As long as you haven't done anything to or host, I guess I don't care that much," he said with a smile.

"I haven't! Cross on the heart, could my eye fall in a pit", Serah recited solemnly, drawing an imaginary cross on the left side of her chest. "He is hosting us, that wouldn't be nice of me!"

Valdyr smiled back at her. "Good. But I'd like to hear some other fun stories of yours, sometimes."

Serah smiled. "Anytime. I like to share", she told him, blowing some hair away from her face. "And, well. You know where to find me", she added, a bit uneasily.

Valdyr smiled again, stopping in front of her room. Then cleared his throat. "Well. Did you at least have a good night?"

Serah's smile softened as she stopped in front of her own door. "Yes. I enjoyed our date a lot", she answered, fidgeting a bit. "And you? I hope you enjoyed my company too."

"I did," Valdyr replied a bit awkwardly. He was oddly shy. "I'll probably need some time to get fully used to it, but... we should do that again."

Serah looked down. She looked strangely shy too. Even though she thought it cute that Valdyr seemed as awkward as she was. "I agree. Often, too", she said with a grin.

"We'll do that," Valdyr replied with a smile. "Alright. 'night Serah," he told her as he walked away to his room. It was way too soon for a kiss, but something had definitely changed between them.

"Night, Valdyr", Serah waved at him, before disappearing in her bedroom, a happy sigh escaping her lips.

A few days after that, a woman named Ashanti sighed as she looked around. She was riding a black Stallion, and all her riding gear wore Sakrish's crest. "You know, Nadia. Sometimes, when I come back here, I wonder why I prefer travelling. Is it odd that I think of this place as 'home' ?"

Nadia turned her head to look at her, keeping her own horse - another black stallion, but clad in the Inquisition's gear - from getting too impatient. She held back a smile. "Not at all, Ashanti. After all, your family lives here. The man you love, your daughter..."
