I... I'm really thankful of you all. Noel, this is my mission and I wouldn't like to put your life at risk too. For now, let's just focus ourselves on survival, yes? Or so he says, but not a second after finishing that sentence he spots a pink flash out of the corner of his eye and his cheerful expression fades away. Was that... was that...?! Meat Boy, after collecting himself, looks at each one of the team and frowns. He has a mission; he can't stay here with these people, as much as he'd want to. I'm really sorry. I... goddamnit, I would've come to like you all, I'm sure, but I can't abandon my girlfriend like this. Saving Bandage Girl is my mission, and if she is in town I'm afraid I can't just stay here with you. I have to leave now. I saw her in that house south of us. I need to breach it. I... I won't take anything with me, don't worry. Your supplies are limited, and I don't think I'll be coming back to you anyway. Please, give my best regards to Éponine. She seemed like a nice girl... I hope you get to reconcile. You all... I wish you the best, and may the Meat gods want us to meet again someday. And so, before any of his puzzled fellow survivors could say a word, Meat Boy ran out of the door with surprising speed towards the house directly south of them. They never saw him again.
