6 years earlier Leon looked with wonder at the ship. He had wished to travel around the world and now he might have the chance. It was a pirate ship, and he wanted to join them. They were in need of new crew members, and they were probably desperate enough to even take a 15 year old inexperienced male with them. And he was right. "Come with us." He had asked his best friend. But he pleaded in vain. It crushed his heart to be separated from the person he had been with his whole life, but there was no future for him there. He was an orphan and had no education, he lived on whatever job he could find at that age. He didn't know if he would stay with the pirates, maybe he could find something better along the way. But at the moment it was better than staying where he was. He said farewell to his friend and left. Present time: Leon woke up by a banging on the door, they told him they had reached land. At first he muttered that the crew had no respect for waking him up like that, but then he remembered that he actually had told them to do so. They had entered the same chore he had left all those years ago. He wondered if his friend was still there, and in that case what he would look like now. Six years was an awfully long time. They both must have changed a lot. Both on the inside and outside. Would he even remember Leon? Would they even meet? Was he still there? Well, if they could meet then that would be perfect, they could talk about old memories and have some fun before it was time to leave. Leon didn't think for a second about staying there because of a childhood friend, nor did he think about taking his friend with him. They had their separate life's now, and he intended to keep it like that. But that didn't mean they couldn't meet to talk for a day. He walked off the ship, the crew was already working hard to get off the stuff they were selling and get on the stuff they were buying. Not everything they had was stolen, even though the sold items usually were. "Look after the ship while I'm gone. Make sure everything goes smoothly." Leon ordered one of the men. "Where are you heading off to?" The man asked. "Anywhere but here." He answered and left. He strolled through the city, trying to see if he could remember any faces or people. He couldn't recognize anyone. Not because he had cared much for the towns people when he had lived there. There was only one he thought he actually would be able to remember if he saw him.
