Stories from who? Again, their parents' opinions don't count, neither do those of the people working for those parents.


Did you lie about all the stuff you accomplished? All the stuff they did?

Do you perceive it worth the cost?

Then I look forward to seeing you reap the benefits of that approach. How is your personal training?

I did not. I probably embellished stories about them
*says under my breath*
and probably me too
*in a normal voice*
because I'm proud of them, just like I'm proud of you. But your view that they were perfect is only true in my eyes and probably your mother's as well. Objectively speaking, nobody's perfect. And you have your whole life ahead of you to do whatever you set your mind to. You don't have to do everything immediately.

Then is mom lying too? Are all these stories about where you came from and who you are, are all of them just fake? Was there ever any darkness, or Codii, or even some kind of scale? Do our brothers and sisters even exist?

Well, that last one is debatable, to be fair. But just because I wasn't necessarily the actual strongest there was at the time, doesn't mean I wasn't up there. That's all I meant; embellishing things to make the stories more interesting for a young imagination. We didn't fake anything whole-cloth, at least, I promise you. Heck, there's observable evidence of most of it, and I'll gladly retell you whatever you want, as well as my memory holds up, at least. You can ask your mother the same things. She knows a lot I don't, and our subjective experiences might conflict, but I've never purposefully lied to you. Er, well, except about Project T.O.K., but I think you knew that already. I wasn't great at hiding that they weren't around to help out around the house, heh.

*Furrows my eyebrows in visible frustration*
If anything you’ve told me is true, then you have to see that where we are is so much different than them, or you, or mom.

Yes, different. Not lesser. Not weaker, or slower, or dumber. Just different. There's no "winning" in terms of a life, Stella. There's no "losing" either. There's just "living" and improvement. To quote a once wise man, "strive to be better, always better... but never perfect." All I'm saying is that you shouldn't hold yourself to the standards you set on other people, that's a recipe for frustration and heartache. I'm sorry that I'm not giving the most poignant or instantly useful advice, but all I can give is my opinion and what I know.

That’s so easy for you to say after you’ve done everything you ever wanted to do and were the best in the world at everything you tried.

…Friends. Which I like to think I’ve at least made progress on making some, but it’s one thing to make a friend with someone and another thing to ask someone to back you up in situations so dicey that they’re putting themselves in harm’s way too.

No we would’ve been caught by now, not that we were really being sneaky in the first place.


Any other ideas?

It is indeed. Can you make friends close enough that quickly?

Discreetly enough to appear unrelated to Tier Five?
