I met a moth a few days ago, in the Village of Dreams.
They needed help to find a certain quest, and I couldn’t say no. We ended up spending the better half of my day together, running all across the valley in search of where we needed to go. I haven’t been a Sky player for very long, and I remember what it was like to be the moth, alone, so I didn’t mind helping out where I could.
It’s what we’re supposed to do, ya know?
Our time zones are roughly half a day apart, and they needed to head off to bed eventually. They asked me the question while on a swing set in the starlit desert: “Will I ever see you again?”
The first time I asked that question, the only time, was on my first day in the game. Following a fellow moth who had stayed with me for the entire journey through the Hidden Forest, I asked that very same question and learned, slowly but surely, that friends don’t always stick around. Sometimes the stars in your sky at home will remain dark no matter how much you yearn to see them shine again, and the world moves on.
My mind was made up in an instant. Sometimes things change, but that doesn’t mean I have to do the same. “Yes,” I responded, without a shred of hesitation, “I’ll see you again. I’ll make sure of it.”
That’s what friends are for, right?
