    Summary

    It’s been over five years since he started his quest to be reunited with his friends, but this was not the conclusion he had been hoping for.

    His vision became blurry, and his throat closed off even more, making it difficult to breathe. The ache in his chest intensified, threatening to devour him. “No. They can’t be. They can’t.” Joaquín’s mind raced, grasping at anything that could help him. “There has to be something that can be done. Some way they can come back.” The soldier looked at the gods, pleading for them to help him. He knew it was insane to let himself hope that something could be done, but there had to be something.
