Not only had I lost my best friend

  • One day, I logged in to find that all of my accounts had been completely wiped—no money, weapons, or clothes. Right away, I suspected my former friend, who had popped up out of the blue a few weeks before to Buy MapleStory M Mesos ask for help hacking someone else (I had refused). I also realized, in shame, that she still knew my password from back when we were friends. I hadn’t even thought to change it. It had never occured to me that she would do something so cruel.

    I felt miserable. Not only had I lost my best friend, now I had also lost everything else I had worked so hard to earn in this game. My other Maplestory friends offered to help me get back at her and her boyfriend (who I also suspected as a co-conspirator). I refused. I didn’t see the point in stooping to their level. It wouldn’t give me back my things or my former friend.

    Maplestory didn’t feel the same, after that. A few weeks later, I woke up one day and realized I didn’t want to play it anymore. I felt sick of it. I had just turned 16 and was about to enter my second year of high school. I had begun to make more and more friends offline. The more time I spent away from Maplestory, the less I missed it. I was too busy stressing about my future, my college prospects, and keeping up with my grades to even think about logging onto Maplestory
