The place was as vibrant as Times Square on New Year’s Eve, but it felt like everything was dull. The speakers were blaring with what sounded like the latest tunes from Kumi, although I couldn’t make out much of it. Ahh yes, here we go again—silly old me subconsciously detaching from reality. This had been happening a lot ever since I started rolling for that exclusive item in that despicable Starcrane Machine. You see, I’m the type of guy who relied solely on honed skill and exerted effort, and for good reason—my luck was the absolute worst. Unfortunately for me, luck was exactly what I needed for Starcrane to work. All of a sudden, a strange warm feeling on my right ear tore me from the dilemma that plagued me.
