Prologue - In HappinessB
-BirthB-


Kino and Hermes arrived at the entrance of the large hospital.

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

Kino stopped Hermes behind the car and watched.

Finally, the happy young couple emerged from behind the hospital doors, showered with blessings. They both beamed. The husband carried a large bag, and his wife 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,” said Kino.

The couple smiled brightly. “Thank you!”

“Are you headed for the Center now?” Hermes asked. The man and the woman shook their heads.

“Not yet,” said the woman, “We're going to hurry home and show him to his siblings first!”

And—

“We'll take him to the Center straightaway after that.”

  1. I know this isnt relevant, but do you think there will ever be a sequel to the story of one continent?

  2. My name is Karina, I'm someone who has lived a life seemingly in the background, I must say this final indignity I have suffered almost too much to endure. You see, I have been sickly and weak since the day I was born and doomed to go through all my life a weakling. I seemed to have always suffered from one illness or another and could never play with the other children as I so desperately wanted to. Mother always made such a big fuss over me, also, making the situation worse as the other boys teased me mercilessly after they saw it. I was browsing  the internet searching on how i could be transformed into a powerful when i came across the email of a man named Lord Mark. who was a VAMPIRE so I told him that I has always dreamed of becoming a  VAMPIRES, All i did was just to follow the procedure that i was been told, and i bet you that procedure I took change my entire life to something i ever desire, freedom, sickness free, pains free, fame, influence, connections and even more that i can. Thanks to Lord Mark. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email: Vampirelord7878@gmail.com
