Dee: I promise. Besides, it's really lonely and boring without you. Emily: Really? You always used to say it wasn't like that. Dee: Yeah, well, I guess I didn't know any better. Or maybe I'm just a different person now. But not being able to look forward to hanging out with you after a while of work... sucks. Emily: So did you do anything, or just wallow? Dee: Oh dear. Well - I'm still going to classes on stuff... and I watched all of Earth's space launches... and my favourite volcanoes a bunch of times... and, um, started to try completing chess...? Emily: Haha! What! Dee: Had to give up on that, though, because - prepare to be completely shocked - even if that's possible, my memory isn't good enough to keep track of which games I'd already played. Emily: Wow, you're right, shocking. Dee: Yeah. Even writing it down I kept getting mixed up. No good. Also, I prefer playing with you. Emily: Aw. Did you do anything else? Dee: Well of course I still edit Wikipedia - they call me the Citation Hunter now - Emily: Oh yeah!
