Rebecca is the first to express her curiosity.
"That's cute. But, why is there a doll here?"
"Isn't this the doll Lord Rowan always placed on top of his bed frame?"
Cossette tilted her head.
"I can't help but feel like I've seen this doll somewhere before."
Rebecca, Eco, and Cossette nodded. Silvia is the only one who kept staring at the doll.
Wu Yan took back the dragon doll.
"You guys trying to take my stuff after destroying my room?"
"What is a guy like you doing with a toy doll?"
"Are you trying to imply something?"
Wu Yan rubbed his aching temple. He raised the doll in his hand.
"Someone gave me this doll."
"Someone gave it to you?"
Cossette and Rebecca were incredibly curious.
"Wait, you said someone gave it to you?"
Silvia stepped forward.
"Who? When? Where?!"
Rebecca, Eco, and Cossette tried to calm her down.
Wu Yan looked at the doll in his hand.
"What got into you?"
Silvia started tearing up. She grabbed Wu Yan's hand.
"This is very important to me, I need you to tell me!"
Rebecca, Cossette, and Eco knew Silvia was going hysterical.
The Princess is still a bit immature but she is someone who knew how to handle herself in the presence of others.
This is unacceptable behavior, isn't it?
Why is she so worked up?
Wu Yan also frowned.
He decided to tell her the truth since it apparently means a lot to her.
"About 9 years ago, I met a little girl in the Albion Forest. She gave it to me during the Orphan's Rite."
"9 years... Albion Forest... Orphan's Rite..."
Silvia recanted. She tightened her grip on Wu Yan's hand.
With an anxious look, she looked at Wu Yan with very passionate eyes.
"Do you remember the exact date?"
Wu Yan scratched his cheek.
"I think I joined a bunch of kids during the month of Aries and the day of its birth."
Wu Yan is a bit panicky.
"What's wrong? Did I say something wrong?"
Silvia started crying.
"Why are you crying? Stop..."
Eco tried to cheer her up while Rebecca took a formal tone with her. Cossette is the only one who caught up.
"The month of Aries, 9 years ago/"
"The princess was born in the month of Aries, she was 7 years old 9 years ago."
So Silvia turned 7 during the month of Aries.
Wu Yan got a doll from a girl in the Albion Forest when she was doing her Orphan's Rite.
Combine this with Silvia's erratic behavior...
Eco looked at Wu Yan.
"Did Silvia give you this pretty doll?"
Wu Yan's mouth widened. Silvia is still crying while he is still trying to figure this mess out.
"It can't be... this coincidence..."
His flustered look immediately brought up deeply rooted memories from the vault of Silvia's mind. She recalled what transpired that day.
She recalled how she actually failed her Orphan's Rite back then.
It was when she cried like a helpless baby that a guy in his twenties appeared in the Albion Forest when he had no business wandering that place. Then, he gave her his Pal, making her a dragon breeder in the process.
Silvia could barely remember the helpful brother's look since that event transpired a decade ago.
But, she recalled the name of her hero.
Silvia called out.
"You're Wu Yan?!"
Wu Yan confirmed his theory.
Silvia is the girl from back then!
"Ah, so you're her."
Wu Yan bitterly laughed.
"I will be damned..."
"Is that your true name?"
Eco, Ash, Silvia, and Rebecca looked at him for an answer.
His background is largely a mystery to them.
They only know Rebecca gave him the name of Rowan Randall. However, that isn't his true name.
Rebecca and Silvia wanted to get to the bottom of this.
Rebecca finally got to know a bit about Wu Yan.
Silvia just wants to know if this person is the same guy who gave her a new lease on life.
Wu Yan sighed. These people won't take no for an answer.
"Yeah, there is nothing to hide here. My name's Wu Yan."
Everyone turned silent.
"So, it is you..."
"But... that can't be right..."
She recalls that her hero was already in his twenties nearly a decade ago.
Wu Yan looks like he hadn't aged since then.
Is it possible for Wu Yan to stay in his twenties after all that time? Is it possible for him to stay so young he can still enroll at this school?
Silvia couldn't laugh at the absurdity of this situation.
Wu Yan read her mind. He pulled her to the nearest corner.
"Silvia, I know what you're thinking, please don't tell them that I already look like this back then. Pretty please!"
Silvia can see that Wu Yan is honestly asking her to keep this thing sealed under a lid. She mellowed out.
Silvia said yes.
"I will tell them you're one of the kids who joined the Orphan's rite with me."
Wu Yan thanked her. Then, he spun a BS story to use on Rebecca & co.
Silvia kept watching as she trained her eyes on Wu Yan.
