Indestructible heart

Looking for you in the sky

The rivers glistened, wispy clouds covering the blue sky, whilst I was... stuck in a palace waiting for war to begin with Calestelle, sitting at my bedroom window.

"Ah... It's such a nice day! Shame I'm not allowed out..." I yawned as I reached out of my crystal window and flicked a branch. The cries of crows echoed in the distance.

"Wah... It's sooooo boring!" I cried as the maid—also my best friend—walked in.

"Ohayo gozaimasu, Kotori-himesama! How did you sleep?" For all her formality, Honoka greeted her childhood friend with a carefree grin. It faltered as she continued. "I wish it was like before... without war coming up..." Honoka sighed.

"Yeah... Me too..." I muttered, slumping further. "HONOKA-CHAN!" I shouted in revelation as the most amazing idea popped into my head, jumping to my feet and up and down hyperactively.

"K-Kotori-himesama!?" Honoka startled. "W-what? You really scared me!"

"I... I want to go on an adventure! Alone! I will come back, but I just wanna venture out there... and find something... or someone... which isn't as boring as this palace! I know lots of people would want to live in a palace but it's actually really boring," I said, with my eyes glittering with determination.

"Hmm... Are you sure you don't want me to come? Or a knight? Maybe Eri-chan? She's our top knight," Honoka muttered.

"No, it's fine! Besides, she's too busy, as in her freetime she has to do stuff with our top maid, Nozomi-chan," I dismissed.

My friend embraced me gently and whispered in my ear. "Okay... Just don't get yourself killed... It'll be our secret," she said softly. I was stunned; I had never seen her like this before.

"You know, Honoka-chan… I'd rather get killed than be stuck in this prison!" I smiled at the girl who grew a horrified look.

"Um, I wouldn't want you to be killed... I wouldn't have a friend in the palace anymore..." she said sadly. I placed my hand on her hand.

"Oh yeah... I forgot about the feelings of others." I took a deep breath. "Okay... if I'm going to go... I'll go now... See you, Honoka! Oh, by the way, can you dress up in one of my costumes so no one notices I've gone? Just get anything in the wardrobe," I said as I got my just-in-case knife and climbed out the window with a rope.

"Kotori-himesama! Good luck and don't die!" she called after me as I slid down the silky rope and onto the solid ground below.
