I figured maybe he'd just gotten bored of visiting. Maybe he had other things to do? Or could he have never enjoyed my company? These thoughts would quickly die.

No, no. Impossible. He's my best friend, and I am his. Something must've happened.

Seconds to minutes, minutes to hours, hours to days, days to weeks, weeks to months. Neither hide nor hair to be found of his friend; and his worry only grew. What could he possibly do? Leave the mountain in a hopeless search, making the shrine open to vandalization? He didn't even have a clue as to where to begin, and it became apparent he really did not know much about his vanishing friend. In all the time they had spent together, it was Emb yapping endlessly - Joku was a rather withdrawn, quiet fellow.

What did I know? He wondered quietly. Joku had been a bit of a weirdo, to put it nicely. He didn't like talking or making eye contact, and Emb had never even seen him eat anything, even when offered a few morsels from the daily hunt. He never mentioned family or his history, but he did once tell Emb about an old house he used to take shelter in before he began to wander.

Maybe that's where his search would begin.
