“So what? What’s the matter?”

She looked up at him. “Sorry?”

“You, being a half-berry.” he repeated. “I don’t see any problem with that.”

“But… My father….”

“Will your father hate it if we are together?”

“No, he doesn’t even know where I am now. My mother took me away from him when I was little. I never knew him. All I know is that his name is Sphagnum Butterwort and he is my biological father.”

“Oh, love…” Chorus sighed and pressed his forehead close to hers. “He must be very proud if he knows that he has such a bright daughter like you.”

“That, I’m not even sure if he remember me.” Calyptra said. “You know, my mom neglected me as soon as she got married to another berry. I’m just a result of her affair with my father and when you saw me here for the first time, I was running away from home. I have no one who cares for me. Well maybe Lilly does but she’s just too mean and told me that I’m just an illegitimate child.”

“You are still their daughter. And now you are not alone anymore,” Chorus told her. Kissing her forehead. “You’re a part of my family. You belong with us.”

“I doubt that I would ever find a better place than being on your side too.”

“Then is it okay if I take you home now?”

“Okay.”
