The nights after those Kalista told me her story. She told me about how she was raised to be a princess and how they used to be part of the Citadel, but her people said that Alpha was a king and the first of her bloodline and not a God, so the Citadel forced them to move to Euphorix. There her people would kill the natives to show that they were royalty. To prove that Kalista was destined to be queen her father would give her a sword and make her fight armed native aliens since she was 6. She had been fighting everyday for the past 21 years.
Her father took her childhood, taking her to business meetings on Ogyptu, Changalyn, Karna, even the Citadel. I feel bad for her, even if I'm dirt poor and she's some fancy rich princess.
The first couple nights I would talk to Kalista. We both couldn't sleep and she would ask me about my past. I told her about how I was at a bar then left to take a pee outside and Ganthet the guardian showed up and gave me my ring. I told her about Alex and how she was murdered. The relationships I had, how I became the white lantern and why I wanted to help here.
I even told her the real reason I became a lantern, you see a lantern is chosen by his ring but I wasn't, the lanterns were all dead and Parallax was destroying the universe, so Ganthet flew to earth and found a random guy and gave him the ring. I never had to be fearless, I didn't have the strongest will, I was just some kid who happened to go outside to pee since the bathroom line was too long.
