Jarrel put a calming hand out as he spoke in private to Raithe. “It’ll be alright, Raithe. You said that your worse fear was that everyone would come to know what you are and fear and hate you but you have one person who doesn’t; me. This may be your only chance to be laid to rest. I think it’s worth the risk. Plus, those other poor children also need to be put to rest. Another possibility in revealing yourself is that, though your mother and father are dead, you might have other relatives out there, uncles or aunts, or perhaps grandparents which can be found through DNA.”
“But what if I do and they’re afraid of me? What good would finding relatives be if they don’t want anything to do with me? That’s just going to make me feel worse about myself,” Raithe pointed out.
Jarrel nodded. “There is that risk but there is also just as much chance if relatives are found, that they will understand that its not your fault that you are the way you are and love you regardless. I accept you for who and what you are and there will be others in the world who do as well, just as there will always be people in the world who are not going to like you no matter who you are. It’s just the way the world is.”
