I don't know what to write.

I want to tell everyone your story. I want them to know what you mean to me. I want you to be remembered.

I want you to matter.

But every time I try, I mess up and have to start over.

Maybe I'm just not good enough.

What would you say, if you were still here? If you could see what beautiful things you made. Would you be happy? Sad?

Would you, even now, say you were only doing what was expected of you?

I don't know.

But nobody will know your story if I don't do this. Even if I'm not good enough, I have to try. I'll start over, one last time, and finish this. Even if I mess up. Even if it's bad.

Because you do matter. You matter to me.

A wishbe is a majestic insect said to be filled with Shaia's eternal love. One need only consume it to see their deepest desires made manifest.

It is the purest form of Her teachings. The natural order of the universe: we consume to create. We create so others may consume.

No.

Existence can't be boiled down into such a simple idea.

Life isn't about the masterpiece. The ultimate creation. It's about failing, about learning. We're flawed. Our creations are flawed. It's those flaws that bind us together. In our mistakes do we find kinship.

What I want can't be granted by a wishbe. It isn't something anyone can cling to selfishly as theirs and theirs alone.

It can't be created. It can't be consumed. We only find it by seeking it out ourselves.

"Uh... Kliss? Not to complain, but I kinda gave you that so you could eat it."

"Be free, little bug! Explore All the rocks and dirt and other boring stuff in this underground prison!"

"Sweety, you really don't need to be so dramatic. And stop calling our town a prison."

"But look, Mama! It's so happy, getting to follow its heart!"

"Can bugs be happy? Like, is that a thing?"

"Food can't be happy, dear."

"Food makes me happy."

"Hshss~ Why can't you be more like Tyrsis and enjoy the simple pleasures in life?"

"I'm not a simple slissa!"

"Yeah! Kliss is a difficult slissa!"

"Okay I know you're trying to have my back, big guy, but sometimes you really don't have to help."

"Speep! But helping you is what I do best!"

I raise a claw to protest, but every time I hear that adorable 'ssspeep' noise he makes, I lack the will to challenge him.

"You're such a good boy, Tyrsis. Now come here, sweety. I gotta give you your present."

"Okay!"

"I think she means me, since it's my hatchday?"

"Sorry, I got excited about being a good boy."

Huh? Mom's necklace...?

"Ah, the stories this could tell."

"Mama, you're not..."

"I am. It's yours now. Just as my mother to me, and her mother to her, I'm passing it down to you. This necklace symbolizes Shaia's devotion, a love that spans generations."

"But... it means so much to you."

"And it means even more to me in your hands. I'm proud of you, Kliss. You've grown into a fine slissa."

"I've really become a grown-up, huh? Does this mean I can go to the outside world!?"

"Oh, Kliss..."

"You're just like your father."

"Mama..."

"Hss. You probably don't want to stay here watching your mama get emotional. Go on, have one of your little adventures. Remember to be home in 80 glimmers."

"That's four hours in ketza-time!"

"Yes, thank you Tyrsis."

80 glimmers is a good chunk of time. But what to do with it?



I should...

:sq_optbubble_left:A: ...Hang out with Mama. :sq_optbubble_right:
:sq_optbubble_left:B: ...Go explore with Tyrsis. :sq_optbubble_right:
:sq_optbubble_left:C: ...Embrace this feeling of deja vu. :sq_optbubble_right:
:sq_optbubble_left:D: ...Visit Shaia's Temple with Mama and Tyrsis. :sq_optbubble_right:

Choosing things is hard. That's why I always choose twice! First, I choose my FAVORITE CHOICE. I'm really proud of my favorite choice so I always SHOUT IT IN CAPITALS.

Then, I pick my SECOND FAVORITE CHOICE. I'm less sure about this one, so I say it in small normal letters.

Let's apply this amazing decision-making technique to this very choice!

first choice 'C' so you can Embrace the feeling, you might even remember a memory about how & why you are getting a sense of deja vu somehow from it if you are lucky,

then after that if you have time do choice 'd' so you can hang out with the others as you go to the temple together. who knows they may even like adventures as much as you do.

Could it be because I've been making the same three choices every wake for the past ten cycles?

"Mama, I'm tired of doing the same things every wake! I don't want to go on 'little adventures'! I want to go on the adventure! I've seen everything there is to see in Saryssa!"

"Oh shush, there's no way you've seen everything here. Our town's full of wonderful places to explore!"

"What about Nyssil's Costume Parlor? There's so many cute outfits you could wear! Oh, maybe you can dress Tyrsis up as that one ketza actor! You know, the one in that play?"

"Might want to narrow it down. There's like 50 ketza plays.

"I think I know which one she means. The Ketza Prince And The Scandalous Slissa. that outfit looks kind of silly, though..."

"Yeah, that's the one! Remember? Ah, the forbidden love between two species..."

"It's :sq_heart:romantic:sq_heartr:, I know. Even if it couldn't happen in real life."

"I mean, it could..."

"The show's totally specist, anyway."

"You could visit 'The Outside World!'

"Now we're talking!"

"That very nice restaurant that offers a taste of the world outside Shaia's Embrace!"

"Oh. That. It's nothing but crayon drawings, Mama. Not quite the real thing, is it?"

"I like their grub! Their other food's good, too."

"Um... How about the Water Reservoir? The water's for drinking, not swimming. Or the Reservoir Pond? That water is for swimming! But not drinking."

"I think you have those backwards, and even if you didn't it's boring! I've been to all these places many times already!"

"Okay, Fine. There's one other place, one no slissa has seen in generations. It's kind of dangerous, though."

"Oh no!"

"Shisae Point."

The site of the Great Slissa Hero who first stood against the ketzas...

"Hss... Mama, that's like, the most popular attraction in town. And another place I've been to."

"Yes, but you and everyone else take the new path to get to it. But that was built later. I'm talking about exploring the old path."

"Oh, really...?"

"oh no you got that look in your eyes again"

"The old path was sealed off by the ketzas, which is adorable when you think about it."

"It is...?"

"You've been around us long enough to know this, big guy. You can't seal something away from slissas. We'll just dig through or around it! But wouldn't someone have done this already, Mama?"

"The new path is really convenient."

Hmm. On one claw, Mama might be trying to trick me into digging again, hoping I'll find some 'passion for digging' deep down in my heart.

On the other... if she's right, that 'old path' could contain some remains from the old war, undisturbed for generations. There could be much to see and learn.

I see two PATHS I could take. Obviously one path is exploring this delicious morsel my mother so kindly offered me. The other is standing firm, letting Mama know I'll accept nothing less than my dream. Then again, doing this could be a way to prove myself? But I'd be giving in and... Hsss! PATH decisions are so tough!

I'll need to be more strategic with my decision-making. Maybe I'll use my PRIMARY CHOICE to pick something from the PATH I like better, and save my SECONDARY CHOICE for something in the other PATH, just in case.



I'll...

What do you mean it couldn’t happen in real life? Tyrsis is a ketza with slissa horns! Isn’t he proof that it could happen in real life?
