It’s funny: when you were little, this base felt so big. So much was off-limits, out of reach. But then you learned how to slip through the barriers in place. You could reach anywhere you wanted on this base, and soon it felt quite small compared to the breadths of your stories, your imagination. But you always had someone backing you up on those expeditions.

Stealth is still a way of life for you. But now that you’re alone, these paths feel big again.
