Have you heard the story about a girl with dreams and hopes?
She did not achieve what she expected. Her father gave her away. She was welcomed with a bucket of water, had to marry a dwarf and even get his child. A child that turned out to be a cruel monster.
It all was a long time.
At a time a dwarf fell in love with a giant's daughter. He worked so hard and got what he wanted. It was just not what he expected.
Perhaps you heard about a mysterious child?
As a firstborn, she was used to seeking and getting attention. To get what she wishes for. She missed what most have of us have. A heart. No matter how hard they all searched the heart was never found.
And how about the story of a child in a land far, far away?
A child that kept a baby alive during a Fight. He did not gave up. As the Fight ended both traveled the seas and started a new life in the land of the Not Loved Ones
I am sure you know they do not come out of space.
The child, taking care of a baby, had a father. This alien was a fighter. It has always been his boy's dream to be one. It was a good way to see the world too. He hated working for his father's trading company. As soon as he could he joined a group of warriors. The warriors did not care about aliens or different looks. They had one goal: killing and surviving.
On rare occasions, Fighter visited the aliens and at times he told about his adventures. Many disagreed with his life. Living in peace was what they wished for.
"You better stay here with us son, " his father said as he visited him.
"Bad times will come over us. Why put yourself in danger? You saw the world and are old enough to start a family."
Annoyed about his father's words Fighter left. As he slammed the door behind him the secretary smiled at him. It was the most beautiful smile he ever saw but not good enough to keep him home.
Stubborn as he was he decided to leave the next day.
Only once he sent a short message to his father. He had no intention to go back home and meet his kind or family again.
"I am fine. If you want me to settle down sent your secretary. You have faith in her, so will I."
A few weeks later the secretary arrived. She was an intelligent girl and spoke different languages. Used to live alone, dealing with issues, she made it possible for him to do what he like most which was being one of the warriors and fighting against an enemy of a king that wasn't his.
Once in a while Fighter came home and spent some time with his wife.
She was safe in the new land where they lived and took care of herself and the children.
As the Fight started he did not worry one single moment about her.
"She can take care of herself, " he said and smiled as the enemy captured him and forced the Fighter on his knee.
To them, he was an alien but also a fighter. They saluted before they shot him.
