I remember quite well the last time that I saw Alexander.

We were all but twelve spending the remaining of our summers days just like we usually did together, just like what all of us kids always do.


”Im really going to miss you my sweet Adelia. ” he said as we under the big fig tree where we would always go to spend time together.

”As will I my dearest Alexander. If only life hadn been so cruel then maybe you wouldn have to go. ”

”Im quite scared to leave if Im being honest. ” he said sadly and I held his hand trying to give him comfort.

”But whatever are you afraid of my lord? Is the sailing across the seas? Why that is absurd. Youve done that plenty of times before, so that is quite ridiculous. ”

”No no. ” he said shaking his head leaving me quite puzzled, for whatever could it be?, ”I am just a little scared to be in an unfamiliar terrain away from everyone I know, and especially away from you my sweet flower. ”

It was the summer after I had turned fifteen, and I had begged my dear mama and papa to allow me to take a trip to America to surprise Alexander and they allowed me to and I was happier than an orphan who had received a new home.

My trip to the Americas, however did not go as according to plan, for I was met with a great surprised when I showed up the Academy where Alexander was studying only to find him wrapped in the arms of another woman as they seemed to have been having a jolly time as he shared to her knowledge on things that he has read just like he used to do with me under the fig tree when we were all but children.
