Hey. I figured that I should say, uhh... I'm sorry for being quiet and awkward, and everything. It was really selfish of me, and I've been such a burden on you so far so... Yeah. I'm gonna try to be better from here on out. I don't want to let you down.

Kale

Huh? 'OH YEAH, I'M GONNA JUDGE YOU REAL HARD FROM NOW ON, YOU WASTE OF SPACE!'. Pfft... Dude, don't worry about it. We're alive, right? We're all good.

Sol

But we aren't, though! I mean... You saved me. ACTUALLY saved my life, and here I am stressing out about the world that I've never seen and being away from home... So much so that I could have gotten us both killed back there. It's selfish, there's no other way to put it, but no matter how hard I try to push the feelings out of my head they just won't go away... I feel so...

Kale

Fuck, what do I even say to that? Stop pushing those feelings out for one, uhh... Sol. And... *sigh*, look, I don't know. I don't know! I-I just can't help but get mad at that, because - because it's so goddamn wrong and yet... Fuck! I don't know okay!? Look, I'm not great with shit like this. And... And I'm not mad at you at all, alright? I dunno *who* I'm mad at... I just know it's there. And if I had to guess, you prolly don't know why you're sad either, do you?

Sol

Well... I mean I've got a vague idea, I guess, but...

Kale

See? So even though I'm just some raging douchebag, and you're just some upset little kid, we're... I mean, we both... *sigh*. My point is, we're the same, I guess. So don't beat yourself up for my sake, alright? And I'm sorry too. I ain't always so great at uhh... Words.

Sol

Haha, Well there's something we've got in common at least. I get what you mean, and... I appreciate it, Kale. Thanks.

Kale

Yeah. Yeah, no problem, Sol.
