Earlier today I went on my first Journey. I was hoping I might meet up with a companion, and luckily I did in the second area! (They seemed like they might’ve been new to the game like me.) We clicked right away, always following each other. If we ever got separated for too long, one of us would wait and chirp until the other found us again. It was an equal exchange, too. I showed them some glyphs and they showed me some; in fact, I would’ve missed one without their help!
In the room with the first monsters, we were both so shocked when the first one appeared we ran away together! After that we managed to get through the entire room without getting eaten, even though they daringly glided down the last stretch (I really hoped they’d be okay, and they were, thankfully!).
In the tower I got a little lost. I was trying to find the little fish, so I kept going off on my own (but I was chirping to make sure they knew where I was!). I’m so glad they were patient with me and didn’t just go off on their own. In the end we both found the fish together!
We braved the snowy mountain together too, huddling close to keep as warm as possible. In the field with the monsters, it broke my heart when they ventured ahead and got caught! A similar thing happened to me later when I didn’t follow them properly and was caught too. We both went through a scary experience like that because we didn’t stick together. I felt like that was some sort of lesson.
But we made it to the end together. Through all those trials. I was so happy to have a companion who stuck with me the whole way! As we were walking into the light together, we were chirping non-stop. I hope they were just as happy to have me along as I was to have them.
It was a beautiful first journey. Thank you, my companion, for sticking with me! Even in the times where I wanted to explore and led us down a dead-end or a wrong path. In case you’re reading this now, I’m Iuliathe3rd. Thank you, thank you! I hope your experience was a good one too!
