I have a feeling Maya will always be a big part of my life.
Although, Pearls has the wrong idea about us. Maya and I aren’t romantically involved.
Telling her that will take some finesse. Pearls has only seen relationships fall apart in Kurain. Somehow we’ll have to explain that I do love Maya and would never abandon her… but we’re not… you know.
It’s… complicated, especially when trying to explain it to a 9-year-old.
