It's not like he's been doing anything wrong lately, if anything he's been looking for Akna these last few days and he hasn't seen a trace of her. He's stuck to his story that he's still trying to find scrap metal and maybe the occasional scavenge but he hasn't shared anything else. "You leave here everyday at the same time and hardly ever…

    A Fading Friend but Not Forgotten When I was a kid, I was a social and outgoing kind of person. In Kindergarten, I met a friend named Jeremy.
