My home Sindria

Romance / Drama

Coming Home

“Ja’far do you mind going down to the harbor? A boat shipping goods is entering,” King Sinbad said to his right hand man who stood in front of his desk, where a lot of work waited for the King. “I will,” the white haired man answered. Sinbad thanked him and as the younger man closed the door, Sinbad sighed at the thought of the work he yet had to do.

Ja’far was coordinating the unloading of the ship which just entered the harbor. While he was showing a member of the crew where to put the big box filled up with various foods, someone called his name. The voice came from behind so he turned around. In front of him was a short young woman with dark blue hair and light, yellow eyes. She wore a short dress with a v-neck and a white coat.”What are you doing here? Why wasn’t there a notice that you would come back, Rim?” She grinned and embraced the confused Ja’far. “Mhm, it’s nice to see you, too, Ja’far.” Although the young man was still confused he smiled and pulled his arms around the woman.

They were sitting in an inn near the harbor now, drinking something. “So, do you want to explain your unheralded arrival?” Ja’far asked her leaning back in his seat. She smiled and told him “I just wanted to surprise everyone. That’s much more fun than being welcomed by everyone at the harbor.” Ja’far frowned, but then shrugged and said “Do as you please.” He stood up and wanted to give her enough money to pay his drink but she shook her head. “Of course I am paying. Go back to work, Ja’far-chan,” she answered and drank out. She pat him on the back and said “I’ll visit the others. Don’t tell Sin that I’m here, okay?” He nodded and let her leave the inn before him.

Masrur was training in the area behind the palace of King Sinbad. He trained when he was bored and since there was nothing happening neither inside the palace nor outside he decided to train his muscles and stamina. Suddenly he sensed a presence coming at him in a slow pace. Nevertheless he decided to stop his training to greet his visitor. It was the short blue-haired woman who left Sindria two years ago; she finally was back. “Yo Masrur, how are you doing?” “Rim, long time no see. I didn’t know you would come today,” Masrur replied to the light-eyed woman. She waved aside and explained to him “Do not worry, no one knew.” He nodded and before and uncomfortable silence were about to spread Rim asked him “Are you training?” Masrur nodded again to what she replied “Then I won’t detain you any further. See you later, Masrur.” She waved him goodbye; he waved back at her.

“What do you think, Yamraiha? Does it look good on me?” Pisti asked with a new dress on. Yamraiha frowned and told her “It looks good, however, I think the one you usually wear does still suit you better.” Pisti sighed and agreed with her, going back to change back. “Why would you even want to change your clothes?” Yamraiha asked the small blonde while she was changing behind a curtain. “I am getting bored of these clothes. But I guess they do suit me best.” She pulled the curtain aside and sat down next to the reading Yamraiha. “What book is this?” “Oh. It’s about magic. Nothing special,” the water-blue haired woman replied to the younger one. “That’s really nothing special,” Rim said leaning at the door frame. “Rim!” both shouted and stood up going over to her. They hugged each other and Pisti asked as they detached “How long have you been here yet?” “Just arrived,” the tallest of them replied. She smiled and said “It’s a surprise return.”

Spartos was walking down the hallway. He was on the way to his room as he heard steps behind him and turned around quickly. The dark-blue haired woman leaned against a pillar smiling at him. “Rim-san,” the younger man said to what she replied “Hello Spartos-kun.” She grinned and went over to him. Though he was a year younger than her he was almost twenty centimeters taller. “How are you?” she asked him gently. He replied that he was fine and thanked her. “Do I have missed the news that you would come home?” he asked confused. She shook her head and smiled again “You have not. I wanted to surprise everyone with my arrival. After all, it has already been two years since I have been away.” Then he also smiled and said “Yes everyone missed you, Rim-san.” Her smile brightened and she responded “I missed everyone, too.”

Hinahoho was watching over his children while smiling at them happily. He was proud of them and also of himself and his life in Sindria. To follow Sinbad was the best thing he could have done. “Oi, Hinahoho, are you and your children doing well?” a female and familiar voice asked from behind. Without looking Hinahoho smiled and answered “As well as ever. And you Rim?” Now he turned his head around and looked into the bright eyes of the woman staying on the right side behind him. “It’s great to be back home,” she said with an thoroughly happy smile.

Drakon was standing at the rocky coast, staring at the horizon. Thoughtful as he seemed to be, Rim didn’t expect him to notice her until she would speak. “Hmm… Rim you are as silent as ever.” She was startled when his voice suddenly rose. She smiled disappointed that her try failed and answered him “Sure I am. And you are prepared as always, Dragul.” He smiled too and told her “Try again next time.” “Of course.”

The girls just left his table as Sharrkan took the last sip of his liquor. He wanted to look for someone of the others to have a drink or two with him. Maybe Spartos or Pisti. “It’s typical for you to be here,” Rim said sitting on the window sill behind the white haired man. He turned his head around to face the woman who spoke with him. He smiled as he saw the familiar smirk of the dark-blue haired woman. “Wanna drink something with me?” He showed his empty glass and raised his eyebrows at her. She shook her head and told him “I’d love to. However, I need to visit the King first. Let us delay this until later.” “Sure.”
