~ • Questions 

 

Why there are two beds in my room?

Who is the other kid in this picture with me?

What is an Otenko-sama?

...
...
...

...Why do I feel like some part of me is missing?

Questions. Only questions I never received a satisfying answer to and kept on gathering over the years...

 

Oh mother, why do you look so sad when you think I'm not looking?

Father, what are you looking for that is so important to keep you away from home for such a long time?

...
...
...

...Why is this void inside me so painful, that even my parents' love can't fulfill it?

 

Then, San Miguel was attacked and I knew I would have never heard any answer...

In Istrakan, I met the Otenko-sama I heard my parents talk about.
And, with him, more questions popped up...

Who is the Moon Beauty he is talking about and what does she have to do with mother?

 

And then, on the Road of Encounter, I met you.
Sabata the Dark Boy, a boy my age that was "not a friend nor a foe", as you introduced yourself to us.
Of course, new questions came with you...

Why do you look like both me and mother?

Why do you smell like her?

...
...
...

Why do I feel weirdly connected to you?

 

So, I kept opposing the Dark Clan just to be able to see you and, maybe, find out something more about you.

Finally, after our showdown in the Dark Castle, all the pieces locked together:
The other bed was meant to be for you, once father managed to find you during his months-long absences.
You were the other kid in that photo and it was because you weren't with us that mother was so sad.
But, most importantly, you were the missing part of me that was everyday more painful and was finally brought back to me in the most incredible way.

 

In these few months I learned to love every aspect of your personality, and I became really fond of you, even when you were mean to me.
And I was really preoccupied when you left to find a way to restore Carmilla's body and soul.
(I knew you were feeling the same when you risked your life to save mine, even if you kept on denying it or blaming Carmilla for it).
And now that you turned against me - even though you're not in control of your actions - I can't help but worry about you...

What are you thinking, my dear brother? Are you scared? Angry? Do you feel guilty for being forced to kill me?

I'm not angry, never will be. It's not your fault, the Count told me everything.
After all, you're my twin, my other half, the only family I've left. I'll do anything to have you back by my side!

Sabata, wait for me.
I've promised Carmilla I'll save you no matter what and that's what I'll do, even if this will lead me to the very core of the Moon!

And you...

Are you waiting for me and fighting against the madness inside you, or have you already sunken into that destructive Darkness that is threatening to take you away from me forever?

To this question, I'll soon get an answer when we'll be reunited once again, either as allies or enemies, in this desolated forest covered in freezing white snow...
