Akaya could only send two of her children, and she was sending Miya and Haku. She couldn't send her other four children because, well, they had never really shown much prowess in magic, and she herself was one of the graduated students of the Heroes' Guild. She could train them to fight.
Miya tightly held her hand-made, patchwork cat, 'Kitty', tightly. She was only ten, but she was still afraid. She'd been attacked by a bandit, and her lower left leg was numb.
Haku was eight years old, and had a still-healing scar over his right eye. That eye was now white.
I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!
You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!
