"Come on, you got it."

"He's walking." A joyous voice spoke. A blurry face crouched in front of him, his arms out, smiling.

"You can do it, almost there."

Sky's eyes opened, he was curled up in a blanket in the cart, Jordan sat on the driver's seat, Ian looked at him, sat up against the side of the cart.

"You okay there, man?" He asked. Sky nods, sitting up. Ian stared at him, he shakes his head a bit. "You sure?" Sky nods again, not speaking. "We're nearing Avalon City." Sky nods again, still not speaking. Ian stares at him. "What's going on? Why aren't you talking?" Sky didn't answer, he stayed silent, which irritated Ian. 'Silence is normal for him, but it still irritates me. Usually, if he stays silent, chances of him breaking that are low...unless you are Falicia, then breaking that silence is very high.' Ian thought. Ian sighed, looking away. "Nevermind." Sky looked out the back of the cart, staring at the plains, hugging his knees, wincing when he touched his wound. Ian looked at him. "Does your leg still hurt?" Sky nods. Ian sighed irritated. "You know, talking is an option, Sky." Sky smiles a bit.

"I know," Sky mumbled.

"Then why are you staying silent?" He asked. Sky shrugged his shoulders, saying nothing. He rolls his eyes, Sky smiles at him.

"It irritates you, that's why." Sky said to him making Ian not help but smile a bit too.

"You're irritating," Ian said. Sky chuckles.

"Yeah, I know. But you put up with me."

"Kinda had no choice, man," Ian said. Sky looked out the back of the wagon, Ian losing his smile. "But seriously, what's up? What's going on with you?" Sky loses his smile, thinking before he talked.

"I...I don't know. I just don't want what the General said to be true." Sky said.

"Why not? Come on, man, you're a prince, a King actually! That's amazing--" Sky gripped his pants.

"I don't want to be a king." Sky said interrupting Ian. "I don't want to be a prince, I don't want any of that, I just...I want to be a nobody, I like being a nobody." Ian stares at him for a few seconds, Jordan was gonna speak when Ian cuts him off.

"Remember back when we were kids and how we use to dream about what it would be like to live in a castle? How we would rule Etora together?" Ian asked. Sky nods, looking at him.

"That was a stupid dream of ours, Ian, that we made up when we were kids." Sky said. Ian shakes his head.

"Yeah, but one of us is getting the chance to live that dream," Ian said. Sky shakes his head.

"I'm not fit to be a king or prince. I'm not leader material, I like being to myself, not some leader." Sky said. Jordan chuckled making the two look at him.

"That's the same thing Prince Tyler said to me, he was supposed to be a Fleet Commander, not a Captain like he is right now. But he told me that he rather be in charge of a small group of sailors and not an entire fleet. It's the reason why he wasn't in charge of the navy branch for Estron, well...at least one of the reasons." Jordan said. Sky looked away from him. Ian glanced at Sky and back to Jordan.
