I hesitated for a moment about whether or not to share this on the fan page. I felt it was a personal matter though, so putting it on my personal page is good enough.
But thinking about how I shared a lot of pictures with everyone before, perhaps I should take a moment to explain to everyone.
My little Gabi is now happily living in heaven.
It really was extremely sudden. Even after racking my brains, I can’t think of anything that was odd.
That morning he was still bouncing around. That evening, when it was time to feed him, I found he was in his nest asleep but couldn’t be woken.
Then when I did the math later on, I realized Gabi actually almost ten years old.
The entire time I kept thinking he was only around seven or eight years old. Time truly does pass quickly…
Thank you for accompanying me for so many years. Good night, little Gabi.
You may have known about Gabi the sugar glider from his cameo in Illusions, Lies, Truth. Or maybe you read the afterword of Eclipse Hunter V5 and discovered that Gabi was inspiration for the character Ri Xiang Ye from both Eclipse Hunter and No Hero. Or perhaps this is your first time seeing Gabi’s name and adorable face.
It’s sad when characters die.
