When I think of him now its always the same. I see him sitting on that ledge, swinging his legs and watching the city. He always looked so peaceful, like the world never died. That’s what I loved most about him. I think everyone found what they needed in Shush. They took their answers from his silence and thanked him for it. I never thought much about the future back then, I let Shush think about it for us while I went out and fought. I never had time to wonder, I was busy surviving for both of us.
