Hey! It's been a while. How you doin'?
You know what? I'm kind of okay. You?
Oh, you know. Mustn't grumble.
No.
Whatcha been up to?
Well...er, avoiding, generally.
Avoiding what?
Not what: Who.
Oh?
You can see that my lady has turned the mirrors back around.
Yeah. I had kind of wondered where you'd gotten to. You're looking like a...
The words are missing.
...stranger.
They're hiding?
No. You look like a stranger.
That's because we've never met.
But you look like me.
Ah, that's just appearances. I'm not you. Not any more.
Well...it's been good.
But has it?

    Hi Drew. I thought I'd walk over familiar ground. The last three years has been a fog but it's starting to clear.
