So here we are. Out in the middle of the forest, with very little food, very little water, and very little courage. But being on this trip has given me an idea. I have never met my mom before. I am an orphan you see. I was abandoned at birth. But even though she gave me up, somewhere in my heart I know that it wasn’t her fault. My goal is to meet her one day. I’m not saying she lives in the forest, or anything. I’m just saying that if I have the courage to run away, I have the courage to find my mother.
Tye Lan isn’t an orphan. Even though she works as a tailor at the Kingdom, she only does it because her family is extremely poor. She does it to earn money. I really look up to her, because going to work at a Kingdom away from her family must take a lot of dignity. Over the years, me and Tye Lan have become best friends. We’ve been through thick and thin, but we’ve always been together. Always.
