In hindsight it was an extremely irresponsible and irrational decision. As I walked slowly towards the Capital I realized that the chances of success were almost none. While the imposing white stone walls grew little by little, the reality of my situation became increasingly heavy. I didn't know anyone, I had no money and it was my first time in the city. I was in big trouble.
But despite that, I couldn't shake the desire to keep going on. I had made me a promise, I would see the end no matter what. I needed to get an answer. She had left without giving me one, whether it was a no or a yes, I had to know what her heart truly wanted.
At the entrance to the city a small group of guards organized people into a couple of lines to search it. One was for those who rode in carts or horses, and the other was for foot travelers like me. When I took my place in line there were at least a hundred people lined up waiting their turn to enter before me.
The amount of people seemed incredible to me, there were travelers with all kinds of characteristics, my imagination was unable to envision the diversity of business that each of them had to attend to in the city. I guess most of them weren't like me, doing something so crazy and ridiculous...
I had jumped into a terrifying void, and yet, I couldn't wait to see what was waiting for me on the other side.
