When one of June's best friends go missing her and Manuel get together to find her all before she is gone forever on the day of Nebulai.

When I was younger around 6 or 7 my family died in a space exploration trip. Me and them were going to mars to check out the new “bubble” they put there. A bubble is a giant dome that has all the oxygen and houses and things someone needs to live. We were the first family to get a chance to go. But, while on our way there the engine exploded, and my brother died on impact. My parents and I got blown out the ship and were floating in space for a bit, but the explosion damaged their suits. As we were floating into space my parents slowly started dying from lack of oxygen. The last thing I saw of them alive was when they knew they were going to die soon and said to me: “June. We just want you to know that we will always love you and we know you will do great things one day” They died a few moments later still holding each other in their arms. I ended up floating out there for what seemed like days after that. However, on around what seemed like the 4th day I saw something quite weird. There was a pirate ship that seemed like it was sailing over to me. I naturally assumed that I was dead, and it was going to take me to where I belonged. When the boat got over to me, I was pulled onto the ship and the first face to greet me was someone with blue skin and red eyes. They had black hair and were wearing a pirate costume. I now know them as Bera. She was the first friend I ever made on that ship. And I'm glad I knew her. 

 

 “You satisfied?” I say to Manuel. “Yep! Just wanted to know your story! Glad I know now though. I mean you never talked about it before in the 7 years I've known you. How old are you now again?” “I'm 17 I think.” I never actually knew my age because when I was found I didn’t know how long it had been. “I can't believe it's been almost 10 years!” Now that I think about when I first saw Manuel, he looked like a monster to me. He has green eyes with one big horn on his forehead and red hair. He has horns on his arms also. His skin was a light blue back then. Now it is much darker. Me, him and Bera went through so much together. We haven't seen her in 3 years now. “You know. Why don’t we look for her? We haven't tried at all in the last 3 years.” I said. “Yeah, but it's been so lonthere won't be any traces of her left.” “Ya, but it wouldn’t hurt to try. What do ya say?” “Ok, I'm in. And we were on our way. 

 

I asked him to meet me three days later at the Ship Launch and during that time was all preparations. But first I should introduce myself. My name is June Kenner, and I am a pirate of the Jupiter association. When I was younger, I was found by Bera and I joined her on hunts ever since. Hunts are what they sound like except we hunt Nebulai, which are gem monsters. When killed they drop different treasures based off their rarity, breed, and age (RBA). The higher the RBA the harder they are to kill. Normally they are ranked by RBA but sometimes you don’t know. The RBA ranking system has 5 levels. #1 is Masani they are normally the easiest to kill. #2 is Tipo they are kind of easy to kill but not hard. #3 is Meio they aren't hard nor easy to kill, directly in the middle. #4 is Muita they are quite hard to kill. #5 is Taea they are almost impossible to hurt, and no one has ever killed one. Taea like to keep to themselves though so as long as we don’t bother them, they won’t bother us. To kill certain monsters, you must have certain weapons that can only be used a certain number of times. Once the weapon hits 1 use left you either use it and break it or recharge it with star dust. The more you use it the more you must re charge it, so it is best to have a lot of weapons. Now that you have a background it's time for the adventure! 

 

After the 3 days of endless preparation and weapon recharging, I met Manuel at the Ship Launch. I put my hand on the scanner and my ship teleported over. My ship was a beauty she was made from the finest wood in galaxy and her sails scream torture from the countless blood stains. The cannons are made from the strongest golden metal and the below deck looks like a royal's house. The kitchen was stuffed with food and my crew was the best of the best. They are the only people I knew beside Bera and Manuel that I trusted with my life. I knew that this trip was going to be rough but, I also knew my ship was going to be fine.
