"My love, Daddy is back. Come, let me hold you," Cid said with a smile, stretching out his arms and taking Celeste away from Aurora's hand, sitting on the bed next to her.

From his shadow, both Beru and Bellion appeared, surprising the others as they hadn't met Bellion before.

"So this is the young Monarch. She is as you described, my lord; she is very cute," Bellion said with a serious face, nodding his head.

Beru covered his eyes with his hands. "Peek-a-boo!"

Celeste let out small giggles, seeing Beru's actions, which caused the others to smile.

Cid patted her head. 'Who would have thought my own daughter would be a reincarnator just like me? Luckily for me, her soul is still very young, so I don't have anything to worry about.'

Slowly, Cid started checking her memories, which caused his lips to twitch.

'Oi, I didn't choose this name, okay!? And who are you calling old?' Cid thought to himself before inwardly crying, 'My daughter was just born and she's already making fun of me.'

"May I hold her, my liege?" Beru asked softly, filled with expectation.

"What, I want to hold her as well," Delta said.

"I do as well!" the others intervened.

Cid and Aurora looked at each other with an awkward smile. "Alright, but be careful."

"Absolutely, my Liege, I will handle her with the utmost care," Beru said as he softly picked up Celeste from Cid's arms.

Celeste made random baby noises and reached over, taking hold of Beru's antenna.

Cid then turned towards Aurora. "So, how are you feeling?" he asked softly.

"Like I just gave birth," Aurora said, leaning back on the bed.

Cid chuckled before kissing the side of her forehead. "Thank you."

Aurora smiled softly before resting her head against Cid's shoulder.

He watched as they all took turns holding Celeste. He observed how awkward Igris was as he held her, treating her like she was the most valuable thing in the universe, which, to Cid, wasn't wrong.

Cid then whispered, "I'll be right back; I need to have a talk with someone."

Aurora nodded in understanding as Cid disappeared and appeared behind Claire, picking her up. She let out a yelp as she was taken by surprise, and both she and Cid disappeared from where they stood.

They reappeared on top of the Castle, overlooking the city of Nightingale.

"So, talk to me. Why the sad face?" Cid asked.

Claire let out a sigh. "You know why."

Cid nodded. "I still want to hear it. It's better for you to get it off your chest."

Claire bit her lip in frustration as she asked, "Are you truly my brother? Are you truly Cid, the little brother who I grew up with, and not some type of god that took over his body?"

"Yes and No."

"What?" Claire asked, a bit surprised and horrified.

"Wait, let me clarify," Cid said. "I'm still the same person who came out of our mother. I've always been me since I popped out, so you don't have to worry about that."

Claire looked at Cid and saw that he wasn't lying but inwardly smiled in a self-deprecating manner, 'Not like I could tell if he was putting up a front.'

Claire nodded her head. "Then what about the 'No' part?" Her expression was serious.

"I was supposed to be a stillborn, or the baby in our mother's body was supposed to be, anyways. You were never supposed to have a brother in the first place."

'Which is the truth. Due to my inexperience with my powers, I failed to realize the aura of death in the body I inhabited, or more like I failed to realize what the aura I was sensing during that time was. But I'm certain of it now, which most likely means the original Cid also inhabited a stillborn.'

Claire stood rooted in shock, having a hard time processing the information. Cid went and hugged Claire, causing her to hug him tighter, afraid that if she let go, he wouldn't be the Cid she knew but a completely different person.

"Why would you tell me that? Why couldn't you have just said yes and be done with it?" Claire choked.

"To show you my sincerity. I could have just told you the half-truth and be done with it, but with this, I'm showing my honesty, that I'm not lying to you about anything and giving you 100 percent of the truth," Cid explained.

Claire's lip started to quiver slightly as she held onto Cid's neck. "Thank you... And thank you for being my little brother."

Cid smiled as he hugged Claire back. "Anytime... Little sis."

"Hell no," she said, separating from him and looking at him with an emotionless look.

"What?" Cid asked with a teasing smirk.

"You could be a billion years old for all I care. You aren't taking away my privileges as a big sister. Since you, Cid, are 15 years old, you are my little brother. No matter how many lifetimes you have behind you, nothing, and I mean literally nothing, would ever change that. Got it?" Claire said, gaining a dangerous glint in her eyes.

"I understand, little sis, I completely understand" Cid nodded with a smirk.

Claire took a hold of Cid's shoulders and looked him dead in his eyes with dark spiraling eyes, "Don't Fuck with me, you are my little brother. So as your older sister, You're supposed to show me respect. So say it, call me big sister or big sis, one of those two. We're not leaving from this spot until you do so"

Cid rolled his eyes with an amuse look, "Yeah, Yeah, Onee-san, whatever you say"

"I don't know what language you just used but it still felt you were calling me your big sister, so I'll count it as my win" She nodded.

She then wrapped her arms around Cid's neck and gave him a kiss.

"Now then, let's go, I want to meet my little niece… I can't believe I'm an aunt already" Claire cheerfully sighed as sank into her shadow.

As she appeared alongside Cid they found Celeste being carried by Sherry.

Cid noticed a glint in Sherry's eyes as she gazed upon Celeste,

'A baby between Cid and I, it would be a true family between us. And it wouldn't be made out of lies' Sherry thought growing fonder and fonder with the idea of Cid and her having a child together.

Claire went and asked to hold her, Sherry looked a bit reluctant but handed her off nonetheless.

"Now come to Titi" Claire said in a small baby voice

'Titi?' They all inwardly wondered, including Celeste.
