impossible!!" Mia couldn't believe what she just heard. Her only love could be dead by now. In that moment she wasn't anymore that tough woman who she always was. Right now the only things she had were Yumi, her parents and her baby.
"Let's go to your room sweetheart, you need to rest, for your baby and your own health." Her mother wanted the best for her daughter, but knowing that in few months she won't be anymore here to make sure that her little girl isn't suffering was breaking her heart.
After the two women left the room on Yan Cho's face an evil smile appeared." Maybe she is suffering now, but I'll make her forget him in no time." Right after that he burned the paper with the horrible message.
Yumi was coming to her friend right after she heard what happened. The guards had orders from Mia's mother to don't let anyone in her room. But Yumi
"Out of my way!! I have to get in." And this is what she did. "Mia
are you alright?" Mia was staying with tears in her eyes, but somehow she seemed happy to see her best friend.
"Yumi, I'm so happy that you are here!!" Yumi went to her and hugged her; she tried to make her friend feel a bit better. "You will tell me that I'm going crazy, but I don't think that Chan is dead, I feel that he is alive somewhere."
"Mia, you are not going crazy, you are the only one who can feel if he's alive or not." She tried to calm her, to make her believe that there are still chances.
"I need your help to take a decision." Yumi seemed surprised, what kind of advice did she need? But it was clear that she started to cry much more then before. "I can't grow my child by my own and we both know that, and
" She stopped, like the other words that she wanted to tell to her friend were blocked inside her.
"And... what Mia? You can tell me, I'm your best friend, I will be by your side forever!" Mia hugged her friend, because she was the one who understood her much better then her own mother.
"Yan Cho came to me today, he told me that he will take care of me and my bay, he will protect me and offer me love and all I have to do is to be his concubine." Yumi didn't know what to answer to her friend who was going to the window. She was looking at the sunset; this was her favorite part of the day.
"I don't like to admit it, but somehow Yan Cho is right, you need someone to be near you until we find out what really happened to Chan." Yumi knew that this was the only good thing that she could do for Mia. But what the girls didn't know was the Yan Cho was listening to their conversation from the beginning.
" It looks like Yumi is actually my ally, I can use this in so many ways. I think I should reward her." He had a complex plan in his mind that involved even Yumi.

"What do you mean, you did the worse thing? You captured the enemy!" Yuuta was confused, Mirai just gained glory and most important her father wasn't thinking that she is a little girl.
"Yes, I captured the enemy, but a true love was broken, and it's only my fault." Mirai started to cry, realizing what she did by capturing Chan. Her husband gently hugged her and tried to calm her down.
"We will try to solve this tomorrow, you need to sleep, it was a long trip." Mirai stopped crying and kissed Yuuta.
"I missed you so much!" And the truth was that she was thinking everyday about him, and every single day was painful without him near her.
In the next morning at the breakfast Mirai had the occasion to talk to her mother and her little sister. In the noon she wanted to talk to her father. "What's wrong sweetie?"
"Dad, I wanted to ask you, how this war started?" She needed this information for her new plan.
"It started when your mother was pregnant, she was and she is a beautiful woman. We had to travel to the Erath Kingdom coast. She was pregnant in the second month. There were few Fire Nation ships. In one night your mother went out for few minutes, then the general saw her, a gorgeous woman. He took two solders and went to her. She was powerless, they took her not far away from the place where we were staying and
and raped her. She was scared and confused when we found her but at least you were ok. She told us everything what happened and three weeks after we attacked the Fire Nation for what their general did to my family." The king was almost crying remembering that horrible day. In that moment Mirai remembered that Yan Cho told her about what happened to Mia.
"Dad, I think you should know something that happened few months ago
Yan Cho's chamber
Mia was walking to the big chair where Yan Cho was drinking his tea.
"Mia! What a pleasant surprise! What brings you here?" He knew what she wanted to say, but he wanted hear the words coming from her mouth.
"I've decided to accept you offer." It was very hard for her to say those words, but she had to do it for her baby.
"Then I'll tell the servants to bring your things to my room." He gently kissed her on the cheek and after he kept going to the door.
"Don't worry my baby, I won't give up on your dad, I promise you this!" Tears appeared again on her face. She left the room and went to the library the only place where she could find the silence that she needed now.
