Jade rested her hand on my shoulder and gave it a squeeze. "It must have been hard realizing you knew nothing about who you really were."
"It was, but at the same time at least I finally understood why Kado was so protective of me. Even then, the Galvadi were hunting for me. And I didn't make it easy for him. He was trying to keep us off their scanners, while I was doing everything possible to gain some freedom."
"That's pretty scary. I wonder if you ever came close to being captured even then."
I shrugged. "Kado never said anything, but then he's not one to rehash the past unless there's something to gain from it."
Jade sighed. "Does Kado hate me?"
