Though the relationship didn't last, it left an indelible mark on Liam's heart, teaching him valuable lessons about love, loss, and the complexities of relationships.

As Liam approached adulthood, he found himself at a crossroads, grappling with the desire to carve out his own path and make a difference in the world. Inspired by the tales of adventure and exploration that filled the pages of his favourite books, Liam felt a calling to venture beyond the familiar landscapes of New Australia and explore the vast expanse of space.
