Hey there! This is the author here to tell you a bit about what this novella is meant to teach and some other little things. Friendship is something that's often overlooked. Most people have friends that they hang out with and share jokes with. This story is meant to delve deeper into what friendship truly is in its purest state. *STOP READING HERE IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE BOOK YET (you can resume at the next caption)* Here's where Atlas comes in. He betrays Link's trust, and yet in the end, their friendship is not lost. This was the first scene I imagined when I came up with the idea for this story. It led me to think: what is friendship, really? Does it last forever? (Philip asks this question.) What makes up a true friendship? Obviously the story is not perfect. Nothing is, including what I believe friendships are. You can betray someone's trust, but what displays real friendship is if the two people ultimately come back together. Of course, I'm not telling any of you to have only very intimate relationships with other people. This tale, while short, is meant to display the power of friendship. *RESUME READING HERE* If you have fake friends that you're too scared to let go, know that I'm here for you. Wherever you are, it will be okay. Whoever you are, this story is for you. And if you're afraid and alone, friendless and without companions, know that there are people who care for you. Whether or not you believe it, it will always be true. And one day, I believe that you will find a friendship that's as unbreakable as Link and Atlas's. This story is for you. And for you who don't relate to this story but one day might. Keep shining. Don't let your light go out. People love you, and even in death, they always will. Remember that. I share with all of you this story of friendship. This, dear reader, is for you. (PS: Apologies for writing such a long letter! I needed to get my thoughts down.) [img=faceslap]
