telling you will not give the answer.”

“What kind of trial?”

“The trial is….”

Rata spoke with a serious face.

“Going through your life.”

“This is the place.”

Rata and Sarah saw the black hole drilled underneath.
It wasn’t the one that Nidhog dug.

In the first place, the hole they looked at was not physically drilled but a black portal.

“Is it alright to go inside?”


Sarah remembered what Rata had said earlier.

‘A trial of going through life.’

Rata only told her that because there was nothing more to say.

A trial that went through the life of a person, but what was the solution for it? As he said, there was no such thing as helpful advice.

Sarah felt her heart pounding fast.
What would she experience if she stepped inside?

To be honest, she didn’t feel like doing it, but she wasn’t going to step back.
Sarah raised her head and looked at the ceiling.

The ceiling was also black, although she could still see to some extent with the help of the light coming from her artifact.

She closed her eyes, controlled her breathing, and then opened them again as she spoke to Rata,

“I will be back.”

And that was the end.

Sarah threw herself into the black hole before she could hear Rata’s answer.

At that sudden action, Rata shouted while putting his face close to the hole,


Rata’s voice rang like an echo, and Sarah faintly smiled, surrendering her body to the darkness.

Sarah opened her eyes to the warm sunlight.

It was hard to open her eyes since she had been in a dark place for a long time and was suddenly exposed to light, so she slowly tried to open her eyes.

‘Why is it so bright?’

It was too dazzling for her.

Being in the dark until now and coming into a darker hole, this place was too bright.

Sarah was shocked, but she managed to open her eyes and remember that this was the place she would have to do her trials.

And the first thing she saw,

“Oh my? Did my daughter wake up?”

Sears was there.

And her appearance was that of the Countess of Welton, just like in the past.
For a moment, Sarah was dumbfounded.

Her mother was in the village, where a different race called the Kelloggs had gathered.

So what did this beautiful sight mean? And that wasn’t all.

Sarah looked at herself.

The clothes she had on were tight against her skin.

Her eyes shook at the softness of the clothes she was feeling for the first time in a long time.
They were things that she didn’t pay attention to in the past.

It was a pink fabric dress with light lace and a yellow ribbon.
They were the clothes she loved the most and wore sparingly.

‘To go through life.’

She thought of what Rata had said.
It was something she thought about before jumping into the black hole.
Seeing Sarah’s somewhat shocked reaction, Sears tilted her head and asked,

“What is it, Sarah? Did you have a nightmare?”

Her voice felt so lively.
It was the opposite of how she was smiling like a dying woman now.

Her mother of that time.

Crying, the memory of that day was buried deep within her heart.

“Sarah? Why is my cutie crying so suddenly?”

Sarah burst into tears, making Sears hug her in shock.
The embrace was so warm.

How long had it been since her mother took her into her arms? Since that one day three years ago, everything in their lives has changed.

So Sarah couldn’t help but cry.

Buried in the happy memories of the day she missed, Sarah cried while holding onto her mother.

“Why is my daughter crying like this?”

Sears calmed her down as she suddenly burst into tears and patted her cheek.

Sarah was still crying as she felt her mother’s touch on her body.
The tears did cease a little, but calming down her heart wasn’t an easy thing.

“Was it a nightmare?”

Sears kissed her on the cheek and gave her another comforting hug.


Sarah just blurted it out.

It would be wrong for her to say no now.
It was true that this was a world of trials and the reality was cruel, but it could be said that her tears came from seeing her healthy mother.

Well, since she could hold her mother’s arms tightly after so long, her tired body and mind slowly felt stable.

They were the things she had taken for granted, and now, after losing them, she realized how precious they were.
Whatever this trial was, she just wanted time to stop like this.

“Will you not leave your mother’s arms today? It is mealtime soon.”


Come to think of it, where were they?

She was too focused on her mother that she couldn’t look around properly, so she looked around and realized that it was a very familiar place.

‘It seems like our home.’

It was the private garden of the Welton’s mansion.

They always enjoyed tea time here.

Seeing this place after a long time gave her a new feeling.
She always used to play with dolls or play with a ball here.

Sometimes, if her older brother returned early, they would even play magic here.


As her thoughts reached that point, Sara had an idea.
She struggled to get out of her mother’s arms to stand on her own.

“Do you want to get up?”

Sarah nodded, and Sears put her down.

The moment her feet touched the ground, it all felt so awkward.

She had no strength in her legs, and standing seemed difficult.
So she stumbled, but someone supported her from behind.

“Are your legs feeling weak?”

Hearing that voice, Sarah turned her head and looked at the owner of the voice.

The emerald hair and eyes.
Even though they were siblings, her brother didn’t look much like her.

“… Brother Jamie?”

“Right, Sarah.
It is Brother.”

Jamie Welton looked at Sarah with a smile.
