He takes a moment. He puts down his phone. He stands up, walks into the kitchen, pours a glass of water, removes his helmet.

From: K
To: Sigma

Message: Are you sure? Is she that dedicated? I was under the impression that it was a joint effort.

To: Kyle
From: Sigma

TEXT: kinda hard to decide
TEXT: i have plenty reason to stay and leave
TEXT: ...what do you think i should do?

From: K
To: Sigma

Message:
(1) My thoughts on the matter are biased by a history of isolation and self-doubt.
(2) Your project is very important. I do not expect to receive higher consideration than that.
(3) If you leave, I will be alone, but in a city full of others. In practical terms, this will negate the abandonment entirely.

From: Luna

To: K

I get the feeling it is. Only if you want us to run into each other, Kyle.

….She wasn’t going to force herself on Kyle, no matter how much she still cared about him. 

A robot—an unthinking, unfeeling machine—yes, but… It was hard to forget that she, too, was a victim of his father’s project, that she was a survivor of the AB game, and that while the others might be leaving, she would be here just as he would.

From: K
To: Luna

Message: We will have plenty of time to decide.

"Don’t look like that. I’m fucking miserable here."

Then again, home wasn’t much better, but.

"I am neither casting blame nor passing judgment. You are free to do as you will, and as you feel will be best for you. Perhaps we will meet again one day. More than likely we will not."

Oh, it was….Kyle. She hadn’t heard from him for months. Not that he’d want to hear from her. There was always a horrible push and pull that came from this sort of thing; she wanted to answer him, then she thought, ‘he wouldn’t want me too’. 

The frown on her face and emptying of her ‘heart’ from this compelled her to go ahead. It wouldn’t hurt. 

From: Luna

To: K

I am.

Unexpected, if anything. He hadn’t spoken to Luna in… a very long time. Since before she’d vanished and reappeared, wasn’t it? Did she remember that? Who could tell what had happened to her since?

There would be no harm in replying, if they were to be stuck here together, again, forever.

From: K
To: Luna

Message: I see. I suppose your thought process must be the same as mine, then. Perhaps we will run into one another.

"Why would I not? For one, I’ll be with Free the Soul again. For another, I won’t have to see Luna or Sigma or any of you guys again. I could be happy, and as far away from you all as possible."

Dio, that’s rude.

"…I mean, we’d see each other at home, anyway."

"Of course. I understand. I… suppose I wish you the best."

In terms of emotional health, not murdering everyone.
