Kino's Journey Volume 12 - Prologue

If this only seems like a half-story to you, just wait til you get to the Epilogue...


The fact that you cry

The fact that you lose your temper

The fact that you get angry

The fact that you hate

The fact that you scream

The fact that you suffer

The fact that you mourn

The fact that you despair

Or the fact that you come to a resolution

Cannot prove that you are right.

~Everybody Has the Right to Make Mistakes~

And so, Kino and Hermes arrived at the entrance to the large hospital.

Several nurses were standing at the door to say goodbye. Waiting outside was a black car. The driver thoughtfully opened the door for his passengers.

Kino stopped Hermes behind the car and watched.

Finally, the happy young couple emerged from behind the hospital doors, showered with words of blessings. They were smiling. The husband was carrying a large bag, and his wife was holding a basket in her arms.

The couple repeatedly thanked the nurses who had taken care of the mother, embracing them joyously.

And as they made their way to the car, they spotted Kino and Hermes.

"Well, if it isn't the traveler! Look! Our third baby."

The woman beamed as she showed Kino and Hermes the baby inside the basket.

"That's wonderful. Congratulations." Kino said.

"Thank you!" The couple smiled brightly.

"Are you headed for the Centre now?" Hermes asked. The man and the woman shook their heads.

"Not yet. We're going to hurry home and show him to his siblings first!" The wife said.


"We'll take him to the Centre straightaway after that."
