But in all seriousness, it’s been a while, I have been in isolation for 14 long, hard months. Yeah, it sucks, it really does, trust me. But i’m back, and I see a lot of things have changed here. I know this, I took my bike, I drove on the long road, miles and miles, and I found clarity, I found who the real Ember Moon is. And as corny as it sounds, I found a thing called Ember’s Law, all right. Now, I know I said it’s corny, all right. So, basically, no one’s going to walk over me anymore. No one is going to tell me what do, because i’m gonna do what I want to do, because I’m Ember Moon, damnit.
