Nothing was the same anymore. It could never be. Not after he left - my best friend, Dice. We both knew this, Asher and I. We both knew our team would be different without him. That our own individual lives would be different without him.
We tried carrying on our team, Team Aegis, for some time. It was just the two of us taking on missions, exploring new dungeons, hanging out around the town of Vaiport; but there was always this feeling of emptiness surrounding us, no matter what we’d do.
Every day, every night, and every step forward… I'm always thinking about you, Dice. Are you doing the same? Do you still think about me? Do you still worry if I'm doing all right? Am I still a friend to you? Those are the questions I ask almost every day, and with each passing day that I ask those questions, it just starts to hurt more and more and more. I didn't know a single person can have such a huge effect on me, but you weren't just a person. You were the first friend I've ever made
