"I always wonder why I was one of the lucky ones, why I came out of the augmentations unscathed, but the same can't be said for some of my friends. Maybe it was meant to be. Maybe fate knew something I didn't. Maybe it was just luck. Either way, now's not the time to mourn."
―Aaron-017 to Alyx-B299
