After his coworker dies, Jax is the only person left to man a research colony located in the furthermost corner of the galaxy. This log documents his struggles, feelings, and dreams as he manages the reality of complete and utter solitude.
The Town was a good Town. The Townspeople were kind to each other. Everything was beautiful. Everything was clean. The women wore pretty cotton dresses. The men wore handsome button-up shirts. Parents adored and doted on their children.
They lived in accordance to the prophecies passed down to them by the Giver, the great being who had created all of this. The final prophecy decreed the coming of the Taker, who would take it all alway.
The Taker was meant to end the world. But the Taker would have to first be raised within the Town.

Fayth and Mara have been BFFs since second grade.
They had always been inseparable until middle school kicked Fayth in the stomach with reality. Mara left her. No, she didn’t move, it was worse than that, she moved on. And since it had only been the two of them, Fayth was left with nobody.
While Fayth is being bombarded with homework and finding out ways to tell her newest crush that she likes him, one of the popular girls invites Fayth to her bat mitzvah. The whole grade is invited but it's still special and exciting, right? And obviously, nothing will go wrong... right? Well, little do Fayth and Mara know, maybe their friendship is salvageable after all.
Bearing the pain for her,
With his eyes closed,
his heart was warm.
Though tight, he endured it.
For her happiness.
Nothing mattered else.
「I lost... myself... with all the love I've had... for you.
I didn't want this to happen...
I'm no longer the person who I used to be.
I'm not the same person when we first met.
Thank you for this pain.
I think... I needed this. Wait, not needed...
I hope... happiness will be plentiful for you in the future!
