[After the excitement of the past couple weeks, Luke is ready to call it quits. Everyone except him seemed to be under some kind of curse, or something... Shifts? Yes, that's what it was called. Whatever the reason, things have been hectic and weird and confusing and he's ready for things to go back to normal.

But... he hasn't seen Guy around, not before the Shifts happened nor afterward. No notes were left behind, no nothing. He thought maybe Guy just needed some space (despite how hard he had clung to Luke in the snow)-- but this is suspicious, and he's wondering if maybe... maybe, he went home.

It takes him a while to muster up the courage to open the journal. He can't trust his voice not to shake, so he tries writing in it instead.]


Hi, everyone. This is Luke.

For those who know him, Guy's not here anymore. I haven't seen him since before things got weird. He would never leave without telling someone, and we sleep in the same room, so I would've known if he got taken somewhere.

[He tries to think of something else to say. It's weird to think that Guy isn't here. Guy is always here, through everything. He was there when Luke said goodbye and he was there when Luke said hello, too.

Still, seeing it in front of him just cements it. He feels his reserves crumble a little. He's a little angry, even though he has no right to be. Guy would never leave unless he was forced to, he knows that, but... he's still mad at someone. Mad at the Malnosso. Luke wants to be home, laughing and traveling with Guy and his friends. Now Guy has to be-- be somewhere else, without Luke. Maybe even without knowing he's alive.]


... I'm sorry.

[He leaves it at that and closes the journal.]

[action;]

[In the end, Luke doesn't go too far. He's in the woods behind House One, curled up against the gnarled face of a big tree. His knees are pulled to his chest, his head resting on his arms.

His eyes are closed, but he's not asleep. He can't sleep in the middle of the day, and especially not when he's caught up wondering what happened to his best friend.]

[It's a lot easier to figure out where someone fucks up from an outside standpoint. Jade goes on, somewhat nostalgically - in some way, he had missed Luke. And he perhaps he missed even talking him through his mistakes.]

I know it won't. Because I know you, Luke. You'll hold onto every mistake that you make, to keep yourself from repeating them. You just have to figure out when you should stop taking this out on yourself. Guy would want you to learn from your mistakes, but he wouldn't want you to spend all your time wallowing in these sorrows either.

If you do know that, then you will be okay, Luke. You're quite strong, despite your numerous shortcomings. And don't forget that you have many friends who are still in this world. You haven't lost your time with them just yet.

It's simply because you insist on strictly defining statements as compliments or insults. You know, rather than either of those two, someone could be intending to tell the truth.

[He makes a satisfied 'hmph' sound and lightly smiles.]

I suppose that you're welcome, Luke.
