Growing up, I had always been sickly and could barely leave the house, so I became very introverted. During the pandemic, I contracted the virus and developed severe chronic diseases of my liver and intestine. I had to be hospitalized for several weeks and it was a very painful time for me alone; I had almost no friends to encourage me and my family were themselves affected. That is when I discovered Sky and decided to give it a chance.
I instantly fell in love with the game. I began to play Sky almost everyday, as I was alone and no one was there to tell me anything. When my quarantine period was over, and I moved to the general cabins, my nurse was shocked to see me so enthusiastic about a game and even began to use it to get me to take certain tests and pills. I met many good friends who understood me and lovingly called them Skater, Apepu, Apepu’s Small Friend, and so on. I even introduced them to my friends and family.
One thing I still vividly remember is that before one of my surgeries, I asked one of my family to do the daily missions and send the daily light, but turns out, they never collected the candles after completing the missions, which was partly my fault for not explaining properly.
Fast forward three years, now I am getting better and trying to live a better life. I still continue to play Sky, though sometimes I don't get the time to play it due to life :').
Now, I have many friends IRL, as much as I have in the game. My online friends really helped me to be myself and move forward in life. For such beautiful things to happen, all it needed was a honk and a candle. ;)
