SPOILER: DO NOT READ. YOU MAY IF YOU WISH.


Pelleas
I’m sorry.

Almedha
But that’s… I don’t believe you! Because, see, my dear, you have the mark! Wait. Don’t you have a mark?

Pelleas
No, Mother. Lady Almehda, is that the reason you thought me to be your son?

Almedha
I…

Pelleas
And that is the reason why Izuka chose me out of all the children at that orphanage.

Almedha
Stop! This is impossible! You are my son. I am your mother, and I say so!

Pelleas
Lady Almedha, your only memories of your son were of him as a baby. You yourself said so. In other words, he already had a mark, even as a child.

Almedha
Yes, that’s so. What of it?

Pelleas
This mark–my mark, here–is called the ‘Spirits’ Protection.’ When I was thirteen, I chose to make a pact with the spirits.

Almedha
What?!

Pelleas
When I learned that you were one of the dragon clan, I began to doubt. And slowly my doubt turned to certainty. I’m sorry, Lady Almedha. I’m sorry that, though it was never my intent, I ended up deceiving you. I’m sorry, but I am not your son.

Almedha
P-Pelleas…

Pelleas
But still… I was happy. It was fleeting, but… I knew the feeling of a mother’s love. You have my thanks.

Almedha
I… Ah…sniff…
