I don’t play sports. I don’t exactly have a ton of friends. I have books. You don’t read – you don’t understand. You don’t know what it’s like to live in different worlds. To travel on great adventures through the galaxy, with people you know better than you know your own family. To live and die with them. Have you ever loved anything? Do you have any idea? These are my friends. My best friends in the world.
