Talking about mom

Haven city palace:

A temple is usually considered a sanctuary for all, for the homeless, for the guilty and outcast.

Its a place of safety, acceptance and forgiveness.

Adrian stayed sitting on the bench that was in the temple, pondering his next move.

“You okay?” Adrian hear, looking he saw it was Jak, he had a concerned look in his face.

Looking down the young boy nodded, sitting next to hin Jak said “I almost forgot this place existed...hadn’t been here in a while”.

After a moment of silence Jak said “Adrian do you have anything you want to tell me?“, Adrian shook his head,

“Man your really not going to talk are you?” said Jak trying to joke a bit, Adrian snickered at that.

“Okay...hows about this, I tell you a secret and you will tell me a secret” offered Jak, Adrian though before nodding.

“My secret is..sometimes I like to drive around the wastelands, blindfolded” said Jak, Adrian looked at him as if he was lying,

“No really, ask Daxter, he hates it when I do that” said Jak laughing a bit, Adrian giggled a bit as he imagened how that would be like.

“Now you tell me a secret” said Jak.

There was a moment of silence, then after what seemed like hours Adrian said in a tiny voice “I know your mom”.

Jak stared, he was not expecting for what he did to work, but it did and it is also shocking what Adrian said.

“You know her?” asked Jak surprised, nobody seemed to know who his mom was, how did Adrian know her?

Adrian nodded “Miss Amelia was nice, but I called her night she used to sing to me a lullaby, I remember it well” he said,

“Wanna tell me?” asked Jak wanting to know, Adrian nodded before singing softly:

Come stop your crying
It will be all right
Just take my hand Hold it tight

I will protect you
from all around you
I will be here
Don’t you cry

For one so small,
you seem so strong
My arms will hold you,
keep you safe and warm
This bond between us
Can’t be broken
I will be here
Don’t you cry

’Cause you’ll be in my heart
Yes, you’ll be in my heart
From this day on
Now and forever more

You’ll be in my heart
No matter what they say
You’ll be here in my heart, always

Why can’t they understand
the way we feel
They just don’t trust
what they can’t explain
I know we’re different but,
deep inside us
We’re not that different at all

And you’ll be in my heart
Yes, you’ll be in my heart
From this day on
Now and forever more

Don’t listen to them
’Cause what do they know
We need each other,
to have, to hold
They’ll see in time
I know

When destiny calls you
You must be strong
cause I may not be with you
But you’ve got to hold on
They’ll see in time
I know
We’ll show them together cause

you’ll be in my heart
Yes, you’ll be in my heart
From this day on,
Now and forever more

Oh, you’ll be in my heart

No matter what they say
You’ll be in my heart, always

Yes i’ll be with you.
Cause i’ll be there for you always
Always and always
Just look over your shoulder
Just look over your shoulder
just look over your shoulder
I’ll be there for you always


Jak listened, it was not your average lullaby about happiness and rainbows and all that stuff that people are used to singing to their babies or children.

This is a lullaby to give hope to the one who was mean to hear it, it sad yet full of wisdom and a promise, a promise for what Jak didn’t knew.

“How do you know my mother?” asked Jak surprised, Adrian looked down and said “I just know”.

Jak stayed quiet deciding not to push the matter, he wondered if this had something to do with the reason why Sig didn’t want to talk about Adrians past.

“You know you can trust me right?” said Jak running his hand through the boys orange color hair,

“I know” said Adrian,

“Do you trust me?” asked Jak, Adrian thought then looked up at Jak and said “Yes”,

“You know your staying here with me, if there is anything you need it will be there, I might be busy but I will always try to make time for other words your stuck with me forever” said Jak, added the last part as a joke,

“I don’t have to go back to that building the ummm... orphanage?” asked Adrian not sure whether to believe him or not,

“Not unless you want to, even then I will come up with a way to convince you to stay” said Jak.

Adrian said nothing, he hugged him tightly, “Thank you” said Adrian, some tears of gratitude slipping out of his eyes.

Jak smiled back as he held Adrian, he was glad to hear that.
