her to death, why did you let her go? She needs to always be by your side.”




Grandpa’s voice, which had only been warm, suddenly became sharper.


“Did I say something wrong? It seems that your filthy rhythm is well matched.”


Uncle rubbed his ears and spoke in a gruff manner.


“I sent you away for you to be a human, you bastard! My, my, my golden baby, go eat a lot of delicious food today.
I bought a lot of presents.”


“Yes, Grandpa!”


Grandpa yelled loudly, holding my hand as if he had never done so, and passed through the hall to a room with a thick carpet for me to sit and play.


It was the room where I used to play every time I came to Grandpa’s.




On either side of it was a five-story cake tower that was as large as a fountain, and beside it were numerous presents and snacks.


“Do you like it?”


As soon as I entered, my eyes widened at the feast of colorful snacks that greeted me.


“Very, very much! Grandpa, can I eat all of this?”


“Come on, it’s all for my baby, of course.”


“Yes, Grandpa! Grandpa, eat together with me.
Uncle too!”


Grandpa stroked my hair.


His hand was so warm that I felt better and smiled bashfully.


“Grandpa has to talk to your uncle for a while, so we’ll be back soon after you’re eating.”


“Yes, Grandpa!”




“I’m full…”


I forgot the existence of Uncle and Grandpa, and filled my stomach with sweet food.


The mountain of dessert wasn’t much different from when I first saw it, but my stomach was so bloated that nothing couldn’t go in anymore.


“I miss Mom.”


I thought as I lay curled up on the carpet.


Mom only let me eat half a piece of cake a day, but even though she nagged me to brush my teeth right after eating, I missed Mom.


I’ll have to see Uncle’s face later.


I grabbed the strawberry cupcake in front of me again.




As if my wish had come true, Grandpa, who had gone out to talk with Uncle a little while ago, returned.


“Grandpa! Grandpa, eat this too.
But what about Uncle?”


Yet Uncle was nowhere to be seen.






Grandpa took a seat next to me just like I did.


He said, stroking my hair gently.


“Now let’s not go to Uncle’s and live with this Grandpa.
Just like before.”


“With Grandpa?”


“Yeah, let’s have fun with Grandpa like before.”




I blinked.


It’s good, but what do you mean by that?


The thought stopped in an instant, and soon my mind started spinning.


I opened my eyes wide.


It wasn’t good! It sounds like Uncle left me here.




“I-I can’t!”


I was surprised and dropped the cupcake I was eating on the carpet.


“Baby! Aika!”


“Grandpa, wait a minute!”


Even when my grandfather called, I got up and ran outside.


‘My legs, run faster!’


I had to catch him before he went away.


Uncle had long legs, so he quickly moved away from anywhere.


If I’m late, he will really leave me behind.


Then he might not really come to see me.


As Grandpa said, Uncle really had already come out and was on his way to ride the carriage.




I went down the stairs quickly.




However, I must have been in too much of a hurry, leaving one last step before my feet got tangled and I fell flat.


“Ah… It hurts.”


It hurt terribly.


I quickly got back up, yet my knee hurt so bad.


My jaw hurt and everything else hurt.


When I looked at my knee, it was already peeled and blood was seeping out.




I had to brush it off and go to Uncle quickly, yet it was so painful that I couldn’t move my feet.


I’m just trying to save Uncle.


I just want to be with Uncle.


Why does it hurt so much?


I guess it’s because of the blood.


Gradually, my vision became blurry.
