Your child AU inspired this request :) Please do all brothers reaction to seeing seeing someone who was kind to them and actually cared about them when they were children? But they were sent away by their mothers? Like a distant relative or are connected to their family in some way? Thanks so much!

-Anything related to his childhood has been almost blocked from his memory. It’s all too close to a certain incident, and pushing everything painful out of his mind is easier than living with the memories. He hardly remembers the person, just a vague idea of how kind they used to be.
-He treats the person with the same politeness as anyone, but brings up nothing about their past Anyone remembering how pitiful he used to be is an unpleasant thought, and avoiding any mention of what they might remember is the best way to stay away from the topic.
-While they don’t seem to have done anything horrible, they’re tied to his childhood, and thus, the memory of the old hag. No matter how nice the person once was, he finds it difficult to interact with them, as it brings up far too many memories of his mother and her cruelty.
-Kind as they may have seemed, he knows now how little others can be trusted. This person is surely just as horrible as everyone else, and despite the instinct to trust them, him and Teddy know much better than to listen. He’ll ignore them altogether, rather than give them a chance to hurt him.
-He acts completely at ease with the person, as friendly and excited as if they’d never been away. While he’s more than willing to make conversation and share stories about his brothers, anything related to his own past is quickly pushed away, his careful facade cracking for just a moment.
-It’s just plain uncomfortable to have to deal with someone who remembers him from when he was a kid. If they make any comments about how sweet he used to be, he’s going to break something, and if they try to treat him as nicely as they used to, he’ll almost have to avoid them.
-Someone from his time before the orphanage turns his stomach to even look at. If they were a servant, someone who saw or experienced the kind of horrible person he used to be, it would be like a nightmare come to life. He can’t stand being around anyone so close to his past.
-Despite acting as friendly as can be, he really has no feeling for the person beyond a vague fondness. They were nice and that’s it, it’s not like they were the person to save him. It doesn’t really matter who they are, the past is the past and he no longer wants to care.
-Depending on how far back in his past they’re from, there’s a good chance he won’t even remember them. A person who knows about his life before memories is a valuable thing, though, and he might finally find out something about the kind of person he used to be.
-Since his idea of a nice person is someone who hurts him, it might be a bit difficult to process someone who was truly kind. They’re still very important, though, as they have to be considered something like family by now, thanks to how long they’ve known him.
-Whether he appreciates someone with those kinds of memories or not, he must treat such a guest with respect. They’ve done nothing to earn the ire of the First Bloods, and pushing them away for personal reasons would be horribly unbecoming of a king.
-He doesn’t like thinking about things so far back, especially if they remember his worship of his brother or certain past traumas within the family. It’s a little nice to have some more company, though, and if Carla decides to accept them, he’ll force himself to at least be civil.
