I find my friends in the courtyard and approach them hesitantly. I’m not sure what to say to them. I’m not even sure what exactly they know about my absence for the last few days.
Sylaera spots me first and immediately bounces up out of her seat to give me a hug.
“Oh Amanae! You’re back. Are you okay? We’ve been so worried about you.”
“Sorry. Yeah, I’ll be okay. It’s just been a difficult few days.”
Tryaethus won’t look at me.
