*You, dressed in a Patrol Rose Soldier armor, are sitting alone in Espina Rosa's cafeteria, when Sam enters the room.*
Sam: What's up, Edd?
Sam: There isn't really anyone around the Cafeteria at this hour.
Sam: Besides, aren't you coming to Justin's party?
<Character>: Nah, I've no reason to.
Sam: Are you kidding?
Sam: Come on, Edd. He didn't call it "First Patrol Party" for nothing! And we couldn't have it without you!
<Character>: Are you kidding? Justin could whip up a party with a handful people! He's the show of any dorm party!
Sam: I guess that's true... Still, why not?
<Character>: Because a party... isn't about one person. It's about everyone.
<Character>: People getting together and throwing a party to celebrate what they've done together or just having fun.
<Character>: It's about... well, friends I guess. Besides, I haven't done anything to deserve one.
Sam: I think you've done plenty to deserve it. You've changed Espina Rosa. Vince isn't bullying everyone anymore.
Sam: He's even part of the fun in fact!
<Character>: Yeah, who knew he could do stand up poetry like that? So deep man... His smile is still creepy though. He needs to work on that.
Sam: Yeah. Even Sofist isn't as grumpy anymore... well slightly less. More than anything though you've made me happy.
Sam: Well... When I first came to Espina Rosa, I didn't have anyone to look up to.
Sam: Now I do. I want to be just like you!
<Character>: Hey, come on! You would have done the same thing in my spot. I mean...
<Character>: What are friends for?
*Sam smiles, and you both shake hands. Later on, the Patrol is gathered in front of Sofist when you arrive.*
Sofist: Ah good, you're here. Fall in with the rest of the Patrol.
*You get closer and stand by Vince.*
Sofist: There, now the Patrol is ready to go!
<Character> (thinks): Friends are to stick by to, no matter what happens.
<Character> (thinks): I haven't been beside mine in a while.
Sofist: Bradley, open the gates.
Private Bradley: Yes, sir.
<Character> (thinks): And I... miss them. I miss everyone. Kara, Mritha, Niki, Sielu, Ash, Aria. All the people I haven't seen since I've been frozen...
<Character> (thinks): But most of all, I miss <Dragon>.
*The door to the Third Floor opens.*
<Character> (thinks): I need to finish this. I promise you: as soon as I finish this mission I am coming straight for you.
<Character> (thinks): Do you hear that, <Dragon>?
<Dragon>: I do.
*You look surprised.*
<Character> (thinks): You... do?
<Dragon>: We've had the ability to from the start but back then our bond wasn't as strong.
<Dragon>: We've been through a lot of things together... And it's made both of us stronger. It's made our bond stronger.
<Dragon>: Took you long enough to notice... Dunderhead.
<Character> (thinks): Did... Did you just blow a mental raspberry at me?
<Dragon>: *snickers* I did.
???: Peculiar indeed.
*You look surprised again. Someone new has joined your telepathic conversation.*
???: The Primal bond between a Dragonlord and his Dragon... Reaching beyond the magic that borned it.
*The voice is coming from somewhere within the Third Floor.*
???: It has been a while since I last saw that one.
