However, early that morning, Kana was summoned into the Master's chambers. When she arrived there with Akihito behind her, she noticed that both Hideo and Kirito have grim look on their faces.

She silently walked towards a chair, facing Hideo. When she met his eyes, there was a solemn expression there that she does not understand to whom or to what it is directed at. She gave them a bright smile, not understanding what is there to be this gloomy at early in the morning.

"Lady Kana, Ken Inamori has left the estate."

"What?!" Kana was surprised at Kirito's sudden statement.

She gripped the arm rest of the chair, trying to act and think calmly.

"No, that can't be grandpa, Akatsuki. He was just in his room last night. I saw-" Her cheeks reddened when she realized that she almost told them that she was there at past midnight.

"Ken will not leave without saying anything to me." She said in a smaller voice.

'It can't be. Ken will not leave me alone here.'

She stood up and was about to go outside the door when Hideo's voice stopped her.

"Where are you going, Kana?"

"I have to look for Ken, grandpa. He must be just outside or in the forest training himself or doing exercise."

Yes, that's what she wants to believe.

Hideo nodded towards Kirito. Kirito also nodded and walked towards Kana. He stopped a few steps before her, and handed her a piece of a folded paper.

"He is not here anymore, Lady Kana. We found this in his room, indication that he left of his own free will. Also, I have sent people over the estate, and he was not found."

With a deep frown on her face, she took the paper and unfolded it.

It was a note from Ken to her.

Her heart began to beat rapidly, and she swallowed hard before she found the courage to read it.

Kana, I have to leave this place. I cannot take you with me. Once everything is ok, I will come back to you. Trust me.


Kana read the short note once again, and repeated it again.

She was looking through the letters, reading between the lines, and trying to find any hidden message or code there.

But she found nothing.

He just left without even saying anything to her.

Is his feeling for her as shallow as this?

Kana felt so heartbroken that she didn't notice that the letter which supposedly came from Ken did not even resemble his handwriting at all.

'How can I even trust you when you left me with so many uncertainties, Ken?'

She did not realize that she was silently weeping. Hideo saw the tears falling from her cheeks,

ts you grew up with were not your biological parents."

For some reason, Ken was not surprised. When his parents passed away, he didn't understand then why there was no feeling of losing somebody important. His parents were not bad people, but he could not bring himself to mourn for them even during the wake, and the funeral. He just felt like he became alone.

But he was not lonely.

Now, it makes sense.

The Mentor continued talking upon noticing that Ken was listening intently.

"As a Shadow, I was ordered to dispose of you. You were just a newly-born child then, just one-day old. However, I could not bear to kill a newborn baby, so I brought you to a childless couple, and watched you grow. When I noticed that you have a knack as an assassin, that was when I decided to scout you inside the Shadows."

"Why did my parents wanted to kill me?"

The Mentor hesitated for a while before looking at him.

"I don't know who your real parents are, Ken. The things that I'm going to tell you now are the information that I was able to gather throughout those years, and some are my own deduction."

"Ken, you belong to the Yamada clan. On the day that you were born, I learned that a phenomenon that has never happened before since the clan's establishment occurred. I think, the reason why you were ordered to be disposed of was because of that phenomenon. However, until now, I could not get any information about it. I don't even know the true identity of your parents, only that you are an important bloodline of the Yamada. But if it will help you, I believe that the one who ordered your disposal was or were not your parents. It was a family head in the Yamada clan."
