I never mention my son, after all.
Well, my husband and I were very happy in the beginning.
We settled in a quiet area and raised our child.
But then...we started to fight. A lot.
You see, he wanted to continue being a Coffer Chaser,
but I insisted that he stop, for our sakes.
My husband had other ideas, though.
He felt our son should have everything.
While I was content with our simple life,
my husband kept treasure hunting to strike it rich.
He wanted to send Illan to a private school in Rodluvan
and feed him fine food and give him fancy clothes...
(Emma's eyes turn glassy.)
I...guess Illan's old enough to take up the sword.
I thought...I should give him something fine, too.
That's why I made this sword.
I don't know if he'll ever get it.
I...don't even know where he is.
But I have to try. I'm his mother.
Anyway...thank you for your help. I should...
(Emma turns away quietly, wiping her eyes.)
