The Prince's Five Knights
"I will be back on the court's rise, do not worry. I promise I will return to you."
Young Azure laid on a bed, holding an old blanket his mother had knitted him for his birth, hearing his brother's voice ring in his own ears. The room was cold and empty, his brother's smell still on his pillow and his warmth hoarding the blankets. Azure thought he was being a baby by laying on his elder's bed, missing him and all. No tears have escaped from his eyes, which brought him some relief for his gait. Lyn will be back. Lyn promised his return.
"I am not going by horse, by boat. It is safer and easier for our old girls, I will be fine. Do not worry about me."
'If Mother and Father went by boat, they would be alive.' Azure had said back.
Lyn laughed, "Why do you think I am traveling by boat, then?"
Azure tried to smile back at him.
"Do not worry, I have made sure that you will have some company while I am gone."
Azure didn't know what he meant, until there was a knock at his brother's door.
