"This is a journey to the future. This is something can't be done by the phone microwave, yet anyone else can do it. Will the untold words somehow make its way to the distant future...?"
*At the roof of the Radio Hall*
Kurisu: Ah, there you are. Okabe, what are you doing here?
Okabe: Nothing. Glad that you found this place.
Kurisu: You said you wanna chill out. And this is the most likely place in terms of probability.
Okabe: Just leave me alone. Don't worry about me, I'm not a lost child.
Kurisu: What? I would hardly worry about you. At first I thought I'm not gonna bother you, but... you act weirdly since two days ago. Heck, you've just become more weird then. What happened? You have the face like you ate some nasty oatmeal.
Okabe: Nothing happened.
Kurisu: Then... why stopped hacking SERN?
Okabe: I thought you said hacking is bad?
Kurisu: I got it. You are scared to be caught.
Okabe: Say my lawful self has awakened, if you must.
Kurisu: This is just not your style. Where has your dogmatic persona gone? How ironic you call yourself the insane mad scientist Hououin Kyouma.
Okabe: HOW CAN I STILL FULL OF MYSELF!?
Okabe: Just this time, I can't do whatever I like. In a decision that will end up killing one of my two friends, it would be an easy choice if I'm my usual self.
Kurisu: End up killing one... what? Answer me, Okabe. What do you mean by THAT?
Okabe: Don't make me do it.
Kurisu: We have been through lots of crazinesses together, right? Why hesitate now.
Okabe: Well then. Prepare yourself. What I'm gonna say isn't something to be discussed, it's the truth! It's the announcement of your DEATH.
Okabe: If Mayuri is to be saved... I... gotta let you die.

"Aug 15, 15:04, wandering in the main road of Akihabara. Seems like I'll soon vanish from this world. Okabe said in the sake of saving Mayuri, he had changed the past, in turn rewritting the present. More accurately, he has been repairing the original worldline. He will first arrived at the world that I died, on Jul 28. That worldline contradicts with the present, where I still breathe. Then, according to Okabe's choice, I'll be erased from the world. Cease to exist... how will it feel like...?"
Mayuri: Um, I left something behind, hehe, gotta get it back~
Kurisu: That voice... Mayuri? Mayuri... hey, Mayuri!
Mayuri: Mother you go ahead first, Mayushii will catch up with you~
Kurisu: Mayuri! Hey! Mayuri!
Mayuri: Hum... maybe ten minutes... um, see ya~
Kurisu: Wait a... excuse me... excuse me! Mayuri! I'm here! Hey, can't you hear me!? I'm... here!
"I'm RIGHT here... is this what they called "vanish"...? Then..."
Mayuri: Ah! It's Kurisu-chan! Oi~
*At May Queen Nyannyan*
Feiris: Welcome home~ Master-sama~
Mayuri: Feiris-chan~ Tutturu~
Feiris: Nyan? Mayurshii? What happened nyan? Haven't you just finished your part-time here?
Mayuri: Hehe, I left something behind~
Feiris: What a clumsy girl nyan~ but that's what makes Mayushii lovable, moe moe, nyan~
Mayuri: Heh, and I came across Kurisu-chan on my way here, so I dragged her with me~
Feiris: Whoa~ so you're the legendary Christinyan~ Kyouma talks a lot about you nyan~
Feiris: Eh... Mayushii Mayushii, why she got that face on her nyan...
Mayuri: Ya, Kurisu-chan isn't herself recently, and Okarin is kinda weird too, Mayushii is worried.
Feiris: Um, and.. Christinyan~ hey~ Assistant-san~ Undead Warrior~ Rotting Zombie~ Celel Scientist~
Kurisu: Sigh... are these all Oka.. that guy told you?
Feiris: Finally a response nyan~
Mayuri: Kurisu-chan, are you alright?
Kurisu: Ya, I'm okay. You don't have to worry, Mayuri.
Kurisu: Topic changed... Feiris, right? Though we are both labmem fellows, it's the first time we ever meet.
Feiris: You're right nyan. And... the souls of Feiris and Christinyan have since been binded together nyan. To tell you the truth, it's because in our previous lives we were lovers doomed to be separated...
Kurisu: Ah, I got it now, you're on the same tier as Okabe. Talk about the miracle string of destiny.
Feiris: What are you talking about nyan, Feiris is Feiris, there are no other names beside that nyan~
Kurisu: And this is what you called maid cafes? Are all of them the same?
Mayuri: Kurisu-chan, you like it, don't you? You can have a part-time job here.
Feiris: Ya! You might feel embarrassing at first, but you will get used to it nyan.
Kurisu: But I refuse!
Mayuri: You can have three nekomimis now nyan~
Kurisu: Don't make me into a quilt vacuum bag! (Unknown gag?)
Feiris: Cmon, say "Nyan~" nyan~
Kurisu: I'm not saying!
Feiris: Um... what a pity.
Kurisu: Huh, don't mess up the atmosphere.
Feiris: What's this atmosphere nyan?
Kurisu: God knows.
Mayuri: Ah! Mayushii comes back for what she left, maybe it's in the resting room?
Feiris: Let us give you a hand nyan.
Feiris: Someone forgot to turn off the TV, again nyan.
Mayuri: Ah, I got it! What a piece of cake.
Kurisu: Is that a branch of Lilium?
Mayuri: Ya, gotta give it to my grandma.
Kurisu: A present for her? Birthday soon?
Mayuri: That... ya, that's right.
Kurisu: Looks like you love your grandma very much.
Mayuri: Hehe... Mayushii gotta go now, my mother is waiting for me.
Feiris: Got anything left behind?
Kurisu: Ne... Mayuri, you gotta go now? Then I...
Feiris: No, Christinyan will stay here nyan!
Kurisu: Hey! Don't stick on me!
Mayuri: See ya tomorrow then Kurisu-chan~ Tutturu~
Kurisu: Hey! Mayuri! ... sigh... Mayuri is kinda sweet today, must be my imagination.
Feiris: *Sob* Christinyan doesn't want to be with Feiris nyan?
Kurisu: Eh nah, it's not...
Feiris: Then may I get some food for you nyan? Don't be shy nyan.
Kurisu: Thanks but I'm not in the mood, gotta go now.
Feiris: Nyan!? Really nyan?
Kurisu: I just wanna stay alone... for now.
TV: How many times I have to tell you that I'm not researching on something supernatural, nor anything to do with UFO!!!
Kurisu & Feiris: Whoa!
Feiris: Haha, nyan, scared the heck out of me nyan, gonna turn off the TV nyan.
Kurisu: Wait a second!
TV: Stop asking me such ridiculous questions!!! What a ridiculous show!!!
Kurisu: Doctor... Nakabachi...
Feiris: Hehe, that guy... just won't give up nyan, haven't changed a bit nyan.
Kurisu: Is he... that famous?
Feiris: Not quite... that has been submerged into the dark history, so you gotta keep it as a secret... Feiris' papa is a close friend of Dr. Nakabachi nyan.
Kurisu: Ah... haha, nice joke...
Feiris: It's real nyan! Until around 15 years ago, papa has been helping Dr. Nakabachi in some kind of research nyan, as the sponsor, supporting him with research fund nyan.
Feiris: Feiris won't lie.
Kurisu: Ah...... HUH!? Close friends!? When did they first meet!? And how!? What have they been doing in those years!? And speaking of the research...!
Feiris: Uh whoawawaa... nyan... clam down, just clam down nyan!
Kurisu: Oops! Sorry...
Feiris: Heh, don't tell me... Christinyan is a fangirl of Dr. Nakabachi nyan? If that's the case I highly doubt your taste.
Kurisu: You got it wrong... no way...
Kurisu: Ne, Feiris, what do you know about Dr. Nakabachi? Anything will do, please tell me.
Feiris: Nyannyan, hum... come to my apartment if you insist. The truth is... there is some rare data engulfed by the shadow of history itself in my possession nyan.
Kurisu: What is it?
Feiris: Come to see it yourself nyan~ nyan hehe~
Kurisu: ... I'm going!
Feiris: So that's it nyan! Well, the working hours will be over soon, just wait for me nyan~ hehe.
"How ironic for me to finally have a chance knowing about my father, just when I'm going to vanish..."

Track 03 Aug 15, 2010 16:43
Feiris: Come on in, feel free to enjoy yourself nyan!
Feiris: Nyan? Wassup nyan?
Kurisu: What the...? THIS is your home!? A high-class apartment next to the Akihabara station, and the highest level too!? A maid living in a place that's more luxury than your masters, Daru's brain will probably blow if he knows this!
Feiris: Nyan hehe, whenever Feiris looks down into the lower realm through this window, she will have her wish nyan, "Gotta spread the Moe Force throughout the world nyan, till the promised day, the arrival of Promise Triangle nyan."
Kurisu: Thank you very much, Chunibyou! I can imagine Obake doing the same thing.
Feiris: Christinyan, want some drink nyan?
Kurisu: No thanks. This spacious household feels kinda quiet. Where is your family?
Feiris: Kuroki got a cold today, so there's nobody around nyan.
Feiris: My butler nyan.
Kurisu: Oh, your butler... you kidding me!? You did say butler(shitsuji), not sheep(hitsuji)!?
Feiris: Kuroki is a decent butler that has been serving my family for over two decades nyan.
Kurisu: Oh my, I'm starting to lose my mind talking with you. Speaking of which, you still has your maid outfit and nekomimi even at home? It seems you should got tons of clothings.
Feiris: Feiris wears only maid outfit nyan. And Christinyan's outfit is kinda cute too nyan.
Kurisu: Ah, this is just a little modification to my uniform. In the past 7 years, I've been burying my head into study and research. Just got a handful of clothings.
Feiris: Really nyan? Then Feiris will give you some of her clothings nyan.
Kurisu: Hahaha, that... sounds like a great idea. At least I can have a good meal with these fine outfits. So that's the so-called "Last Supper" I see.
Feiris: ... perhaps the size won't match.
Kurisu: Are you referring to the size of my breasts!? THE SIZE OF MY BREASTS HUH!?
Feiris: Your height nyan.
Kurisu: What! You... I said nothing.
Feiris: Nyan hehehehe... nyan hehehe...
Kurisu: Hey! What kind of perverted chuckling is that!?
Feiris: Some scientists suggested that if you rub your breasts enough they will become bigger nyan.
Kurisu: NOOOOO!!! WAIT!!! STOP!!! HOLD IT RIGHT THERE!!! DON'T TOUCH MEEEE!!!
Feiris: Nyan~ Christinyan~ Hehehehe~ nyan~
Feiris: It does feel good, didn't it?
Kurisu: I said STOP!
Feiris: Hum, don't be shy nyan.
Kurisu: Heh, ya, this is sexual assault! And in which way does it sound scientific!? Ridiculious. Aside from this, just tell me about your father and Dr. Nakabachi.
Feiris: Christinyan is so cruel nyan~ Okay, wait a second nyan~
Feiris: Alright, this's the one nyan.
Kurisu: Is that a video tape? It's kinda tiny.
Feiris: Cassette tape nyan. For audio recording nyan. It's very common in music storaging two decades ago nyan.
Kurisu: First time seeing one. Then... what's being recorded inside this tape?
Feiris: A conversation between Feiris' papa and Dr. Nakabachi nyan.
Kurisu: It's weird for you to keep something like that.
Feiris: Eh... Feiris' papa... err...
Feiris: Nyan haha, it's nothing nyan. Papa has been taking audio notes daily since his time in university. There were so many tapes nyan, at least 2000 of them nyan. But they were disposed of 10 years ago nyan. Except this one, being stored in papa's working desk. I discovered it when I first moved into here nyan.
Kurisu: This tape... has a label on it, Heisei... year 6(1994)...
Feiris: It's recorded 16 years ago, when papa was 28 nyan.
Kurisu: Ah, then your father is at the same age as Nakabachi.
Feiris: Nyan, though it's true... how does Christinyan know about the age of Nakabachi nyan?
Kurisu: Huh!? This is because... you see, that's the conclusion of the coordinate and vector calculated from the Non-Euclidean space in a phase structure, adding in the data of the projection area... how should I put it....
Feiris: No way nyan! The result you got is... the number of the Devil nyan. Christinyan, This is a forbidden formula nyan, how could you...
Kurisu: Forget it, hurry and let me listen to the tape.
Feiris: Okay let me setup the recorder first...
Kurisu: You still have a cassette recorder?
Feiris: Papa was a dedicated collector of old PCs and electric appliances nyan. Aha, it's set nyan. Christinyan, have you made up your mind nyan? There will be no return once you listened to it.
Kurisu: You can quit your jokes now.
Feiris: I'm not joking nyan.
Kurisu: What do you mean?
Feiris: Papa's group had planned to build something really incredible nyan.
Feiris: There's a condition though nyan. You can't tell anyone in regard to what you're going to hear nyan.
Kurisu: Don't worry, I won't tell anybody. I'll be vanished soon anyway.
Feiris: Nyan? Vanish?
Kurisu: Eh... nevermind! I won't tell anyone, you have my words.
Feiris: Ya, as fellow labmem, I trust you nyan. Then let get it started nyan, press-nyan!
α Track 04
Track 04 Oct 3, 1994 19:21
Yukitaka: Ahah, testing. Today's secret meeting is held at the cafe in Akihabara.
Nakabachi: Hey Yukitaka, it's not the Investigation Council of General Relativity, isn't it?
Yukitaka: I know it, just take a seat first, Shouitsu.
Nakabachi: Wait, don't call me by my real name!
Hashida: Ha, pseudonym. Like what I've done before.
Yukitaka: Is that so, Professor Hashida. What name is it then?
Hashida: That's a secret~
Feiris: Let me brief you a bit. Yukitaka is Feiris's papa, and Shouitsu is Dr. Nakabachi's real name.
Kurisu: I know it, such a thing...
Feiris: Professor Hashida is... umm... no clue nyan. Kuroki said he hasn't met her once neither, she's a figure shaded in mysteries nyan.
Kurisu: Hashida... maybe she's a relative of that super haker? Like, mother?
Feiris: I know Daru's mother, her voice is totally different from this one nyan.
Kurisu: Just leave it at that. Let me have the following contents.
Feiris: Roger nyan~
Nakabachi: Call me Professor Nakabachi, this is my current name I adopted to hide my real identity.
Yukitaka: If you're a professor, then what about Professor Hashida? Can't you change it to doctor instead?
Hashida: I'm not really a professor, Akiha Yukitaka.
Nakabachi: As a scientist, it's just kinda weird to be called a doctor anyway.
Yukitaka: Ya? Doctor Nakabachi sounds like a great name. If not just use the real name then.
Nakabachi: It's so dangerous, the Academic will probably send its assassins after me when the time machine is finished. And that will turn down my mentor who gave me the name "Nakabachi".
Yukitaka: Who's your mentor?
Hashida: Me perhaps?
Hashida: Then who's it?
Nakabachi: A secret that is.
Yukitaka: So it's all your imagination. Again.
Nakabachi: Imagination!? How dare you! I've presumed Einstein my mentor long time ago, in my heart!
Hashida: Speaking of which, why "Nakabachi"(Inside a bowl)?
Nakabachi: Because I assume that the centre of a bowl demonstrates the ultimate form of the universe.
Yukitaka: Okay, let start our routine meeting.
Nakabachi: Hey! Don't you dare ignore me!
Yukitaka: Dr. Nakabachi, say, it's been 8 years since we started this research. But it seems it's far from success.
Nakabachi: It's impossible to create a Kerr blackhole in just 8 years, we need more time.
Hashida: It's true, Akiha Yukitaka. Dr. Nakabachi-kun has done his best.
Nakabachi: Hey you two, don't call me a doctor again.
Yukitaka: My company has been in hard times recently. I'll try to keep my supporting fund, but...
Hashida: In times of recession.
Nakabachi: Huh? Professor Hashida, what's the meaning of it?
Hashida: It means that it will be all in vain despite our continuing research.
Nakabachi: No way!
Hashida: Nakabachi-kun, you've been a great help, but there's a limit for such personal research. I'm sorry, if I didn't get all of you involved into this mess 8 years ago when you were my students...
Yukitaka: It all started when Nakabachi read professor's notes without your permission. It's not your responsibility.
Nakabachi: Heh, give me a break already. But professor, I don't wanna give up! Our research - time machine is the dream of mankind! Please give it a thought!
Yukitaka: If you insist, the fund won't like what it used to be. We need to scale down the research.
Hashida: Come to think of it, I still haven't asked why you wanted to build a time machine, Nakabachi-kun?
Nakabachi: That's... a top secret. You can say it's honor.
Hashida: Don't be so close-minded, tell me already.
Nakabachi: Heh, it's what you called a national secret. And there's something forbidden to know in the world.
Yukitaka: Professor, looks like he wants to witness the instant when mankind doomed themselves.
Nakabachi: Hey! Yukitaka! Cut the crap!
Yukitaka: That's not something shy to hide.
Hashida: Nakabachi-kun you romantic bastard.
Nakabachi: Just no. What about you, Yukitaka?
Yukitaka: For business of course. Something in your mind?
Nakabachi: Hahaha, without any dreams nor romance.
Yukitaka: How rude! Business got dreams and romance too!
Hashida: Such positive and realistic view. It really is the style of Akiha Yukitaka.
Yukitaka: Professor Hashida, and you?
Nakabachi: It was you who suggested us to build a time machine in the frist place, professor. I was since thinking, it seems like you have seen the real deal. Perhaps time machine do exist, isn't it?
Hashida: I just wanna... travel back to the past... nah, I wanna go to the future to retrieve something I left. I've been waiting for that moment, lonely. How headstrong of me...
Yukitaka: What are you talking about...?
Hashida: You might understand one day.
Nakabachi: All in all, the time machine is our common dream. I don't wanna give up just yet!
Hashida: But Nakabachi-kun, you too got your own family. You just can't chase your dream forever.
Yukitaka: Agreed. How unfortunate for your little girl to have a father like you!
Nakabachi: Hahaha! That's not the truth! My daughter is so blessed! You maybe surprised, but recently she has shown interest in addition formula, in an age of two! It's just incredible, my girl! A bright future awaits her, hahahahahaa!
Yukitaka: Doctor is a typical fond father.
Nakabachi: How about your daughter, Yukitaka? She was born last year, right?
Yukitaka: Ah, can't hang around with her that much due to my works.
Nakabachi: With a completed time machine, you can go back to the moment of your child's birth! Sounds like a great idea heh?
Hashida: That's right. It's good to be the daughter of the romantic Nakabachi-kun.

Feiris: It ends here nyan.
Kurisu: What these three people have been doing... is the same as ours.
Feiris: Really? A time machine? I was shocked nyan. Ah, wasn't his time machine press conference at the Radio Hall called off earlier nyan? What's up then nyan?
"When did my relationship with father first become that horrid? I just want his approval. Because of that, I read father's papers; and to understand the contents, I learnt physics by self-study. Then, at that day, my 11th birthday...
Nakabachi: Satisfied now? Are you satisfied to completely disprove my theories in your age? Don't make me laugh! How nice would it be if you have never born into this world! I'll definitely complete the time machine that you denied! Then I'll erase your very existence from this world!!!
That's 7 years ago. I haven't meet father since then."
Feiris: Despite haven't listened to this cassette for a time, don't you think that Dr. Nakabachi is like Kyouma nyan?
Kurisu: Okabe? Ah, looks like it's the way.
"Maybe I got serious father issue..."
Feiris: Say, what's the relationship between Christinyan and Nakabachi nyan?
Kurisu: That's... not your business, just don't bother me.
Feiris: Nyan... I had prepared this old cassette just for you! No?
Kurisu: Ah... ne, Feiris, haven't you once got hurt by someone you loved? Saying things like "You better vanish"?
Kurisu: Can you say for sure you are needed by this world?
Kurisu: I... don't know... I'm confused. I want a certain one to approve my existence. I don't want him to forget me. But perhaps he just doesn't need me deep in his heart, and that's what bothering me...
Feiris: "You better vanish"... that's one cruel line nyan, but it's definitely not what he had in mind nyan.
Kurisu: Is that so...
Feiris: He must be regretted... for what he said. Nyan, my head hurts nyan. It's going nowhere if you sit still. It's better for you to contact him now. The relationship might not be improved at first, but if you open your heart to him, time will take care of the rest nyan!
Kurisu: Time... is running out.
Feiris: I don't understand what you mean by that, but you can call him right away nyan. Just give it a shot nyan, perhaps he's been regretting too nyan. Cmon, no time to lose.
Kurisu: It is... useless. He said never to bother him again the last time I called.
Feiris: Did you tell him your thought nyan?
Feiris: You gotta do it this time nyan, let's go~
Kurisu: It can't help...
Kurisu: So... I'm just gonna say I'm sorry...
Feiris: That's okay nyan.
Kurisu: I have nothing left to lose.
Nakabachi: Who's it?
Kurisu: Ah, this is...
Kurisu: Ah... how do you recognize me...?
Nakabachi: Your voice. It's impossible to forget.
Kurisu: Yes... ya! We are father and daughter anyway.
Nakabachi: Don't get it wrong!!!
Nakabachi: I told you not to call me ever again! So, you wanna make fun of me, don't you!? Are you here to make a mockery out of my appearance at the TV show, and laughs as I'm not even a researcher now!?
Kurisu: It's not like that, listen to me papa!
Nakabachi: Just listen, the theory behind the time machine has been established, I'll definitely complete it! When it's done, I'm gonna return to the past and erase everything!
Kurisu: Papa! Please listen to me, papa! I...
Nakabachi: Remember! The likes of you will be erased in no time!!!
Kurisu: Ne, papa, do you... hate me...?
*Phone got hung up*
Kurisu: If that is papa's wish, it will soon come true... so you can forget me...
Kurisu: See, told you it won't work.
Feiris: You can't give up nyan! You will certainly regret it if things go down that way...
Kurisu: That's enough. Leave me alone.
Feiris: What are you talking about nyan, I can't leave you nyan.
Kurisu: Of course you can! You will forget I've been here all along. It's meaningless to interfere. You're wasting your time.
Kurisu: Speaking of which, why did I get serious with you weirdo that nyan all day.
Kurisu: I dislike that name too.
Feiris: But Feiris... Feiris is worried about Christinyan nyan!
Kurisu: ... thanks for your father's cassette. I gotta go now.
Feiris: Ah... until then...
Kurisu: We won't meet again!
Kurisu: Bye and take care.
Kurisu: I am... the worst.

"I felt I'm becoming worse and worse. The worst woman. So I decided to leave Akihabara. Because I'm not the one Okabe wanted to save. It's Mayuri. I won't let Mayuri die..."
Kurisu: I'll go alone from here.
"Aug 17 17:02, in front of Akihabara station."
Okabe: You really... gotta go...?
Kurisu: Ha, don't give me that face. It's just not like you, the man with the name Hououin Kyouma.
Okabe: How rush for you to depart at the peak hours.
Kurisu: It can't help.
Okabe: Ya... it can't help...
Kurisu: Hey, wassup, you've been staring at me!
Okabe: I... I love you.
Kurisu: ... um.
"I'll kill myself if I ever see your sad face when I look into a mirror, Okabe."
"Bothering, bothering and bothering, he's been thinking about a way to save me. He is exhausted. But it can't help. That face, it's like a child that's about to cry..."
Kurisu: Okabe... I... um, nevermind...
"It's enough. Okabe has been struggling till now because of me... and he... kissed me last night. I won't say anything irresponsible again. I won't let more people to hate me. I don't want to disrupt the relationship between Okabe and Mayuri. Things will settle down eventually if I go in silence."
Kurisu: Okabe... please take care of Mayuri.
Okabe: Um, you can count on me.
Kurisu: Goodbye then...
Okabe: Seriously, aren't we going to tell Mayuri and Daru?
Kurisu: I feel that it will make everyone upset. If it's only Okabe, I can leave Japan without any hesitation. Ha, okay that's a joke.
Okabe: A farewell present. Take it!
Kurisu: This is... a future gadget?
Okabe: It's Unit No.2 - the Copter Camera.
Kurisu: Heh, I don't need it. But it can't help, I'll take it.
Okabe: In the end, we haven't gone to Aomori together.
Kurisu: Ya. But I've been very happy in the past two weeks. Please say thanks to Mayuri and Hashida for me. Okabe... you can do it.
Okabe: Take care... I... I must not forget Makise Kurisu!!! I will not forget the tenderness of Makise Kurisu!!!
Kurisu: Thanks... Okabe...
"I'm the one who got denied by the world. I'm not supposed to exist. Please! Please forget me! So I can give up wholly..."

*Train passes by*
"Aug 17 12 o'clock... ah... 12 o'clock, it doesn't matter what time is it anyway. It has since been 5 hours, and I'm still in Akihabara. It's meaningless for where I'm now. Okabe, looks like he hasn't changed the worldline yet. If it's the case, I should of vanished already. I won't be able to think of anything. Heh, it feels like I'm on death row. Ne, Okabe, be quick and erase me..."
Feiris: So you're here.
Kurisu: Eh? Feiris-san?
Feiris: Ha, you look sick. Like a zombie.
Feiris: May I have a seat?
Kurisu: I didn't say you can sit beside me.
Feiris: The seats in the station lobby aren't your properties. And a cat can do whatever it wants.
Kurisu: Why are you here anyway?
Feiris: I'm looking for a lost cat.
Kurisu: I'm not a lost cat.
Feiris: It's a wild cat then.
Kurisu: It seems that you like to have a finger in every pie.
Feiris: I thought you've taken your flight.
Kurisu: Okay, game drawn.
Feiris: This is Akihabara station, not the airport.
Feiris: Heh, say it isn't so.
Kurisu: Where has your nyannyan phrase gone?
Feiris: Akiha Rumiho, nice to meet you.
Feiris: That's my name.
Kurisu: Heh, I apologize for what I said if you took that to your heart. Just leave me alone.
Feiris: No way!
Kurisu: No way? What's the matter?
Feiris: I've been looking for you. Because I can't leave the issue between you and Nakabachi unsettled.
Kurisu: Stop poking your nose into my business. You've seen where it led.
Feiris: Haven't you made a second call?
Feiris: Scary isn't it.
Kurisu: Say whatever you please. I got nowhere to go. I won't be approved despite all my efforts.
Feiris: Well it couldn't help. Here's a present for you.
Kurisu: What's this? The packaging is kinda old, but it's pretty nevertheless.
Feiris: It would be more accurate if I said I'm "returning" it to you.
Kurisu: What did you just say?
Feiris: Let's open it.
Feiris: Yup, here.
Kurisu: In such a place...
Feiris: Just open it.
Kurisu: This is... a fork? A childish one that is. Come to think of it, I've told Okabe that I wanted a fork. Ah, you give it to me because you've heard this from that guy?
Feiris: Nah. It's not mine.
Feiris: You gotta read this card, it was tied on the ribbon.
Kurisu: "Happy 11th Birthday"... it's from father!
Feiris: Makise Shouitsu. It's not a secret if you search the real name of Dr. Nakabachi on the net. He's your father. I've been suspecting that since we listened to the tape last time.
Kurisu: The present of my 11th birthday... that's 7 years ago, the day father denied my existence.
Feiris: Kuroki gave it to me on this morning. He said on your 11th birthday, Nakabachi came to our home after having a quarrel with you. He was holding the present all the time, exhausted.
Feiris: He looked like he's lost his temper. He has wasted his daughter's birthday present.
Kurisu: This dent on the packaging must be caused by his grip. This is the answer. On that day, I've earned my father's hatred. Our relationship can never be repaired. End of story.
Feiris: You got it wrong! And that's what brought me here.
Kurisu: Ha, why not? Did you see how our last conversation end?
Feiris: You haven't been denied!
Kurisu: Yes I HAVE been denied! Nothing matters now anyway!
Feiris: Please don't say something like that!
Kurisu: Why!? Why must you interfere with my stuff!? This is the problem of MY family, even if our fathers are friends!
Feiris: Because that's not your own problem! My father... he has... gone.
Feiris: He died in an air crash 10 years ago, on my 8th birthday.
Feiris: Guess what's the last thing I told my father? "It would be better if papa dies."
Feiris: Then came the air crash. It has come true. I will never have the chance to say sorry to papa! So that's not your own problem. I can understand your pain, your regret...
Feiris: That's not all of it. I got prove.
Feiris: Don't you remember the tape you has listened to back at my home? That tape, if you play it again, you will notice there's some record on side B too. 7 years ago, Nakabachi listened to the tape yearningly when he visited my home. I think the record must be the words Nakabachi haven't said 7 years ago.
Kurisu: The untold... words.
Feiris: I've brought a mobile cassette player with me. Great isn't it? There's a whole collection of old electric appliances at my home. Okay let's listen to it, shall we?
Nakabachi: Jul 25, 2003, round... heh... which round is it? Forget it, this is the Investigation Council of General Relativity. Yukitaka and Professor Hashida have long gone, both of them. Sigh, how keen of us when we were planning to build a time machine! I wanna go back to the good old days! This time, I must complete the time machine. To build a time machine which won't be denied by my daughter, a perfect time machine... Hey, Yukitaka, I... I too got things I want to do with a time machine. Today, I said something really terrible to my daughter. I want to return to that moment and tell myself - Don't hurt Kurisu, your daughter. Don't be so willful and ruin the bond of your family! That's not what I truely wanted to say!
Feiris: See, you haven't been denied. You can stay in here.
"The untold words. The undelivered feeling. At that time, a face filled with caring..."
Kurisu: Feiris-san. Nah, Rumiho-san. Like my father, I too have feeling undelivered, words untold. Now I understand I must say it. I thought if I keep it in my heart, it will vanish. But...
Feiris: Kurisu-san, if you're to be forgotten, you can have your feeling recorded. One day, someone will find it eventually. Like my discovery of this tape after my papa's death. Like the words of your father from 7 years ago. Believe it with your whole heart, and it will definitely reach out! Now go, to Kyouma!
Kurisu: Heh, you got me.
Feiris: Haha, that's the true power of Feiris' demonic eye - Cheshire Break nyan!
Kurisu: Ya ya. Can I make it if I make a run for it?
Kurisu: Goodbye then!
Feiris: Safe journey! And don't forget to visit this town again, Christinyan~
Kurisu: Haha, I'm not Christinyan, nor Assistant!
Feiris: Ya, hahahaa!
"Ne, Okabe, I was wrong. I've been pitying myself. But I understand now. Father told me that I can stay right here! This place got people I liked, and people who said they like me - Okabe, Mayuri, Rumiho, oh and, Hashida. Okabe, this is just ridiculous! It's like a fantasy, something I never dreamed of. In the past two weeks, I became my present self because I stayed in Akihabara, as a labmem. I trust you Okabe! You can definitely reach a better end! To a world where I won't vanish, nor Mayuri's death. Before our departure, I must say the "Goodbye" I was not able to say, I must tell the feeling that has been sleeping in my heart for two whole weeks. Because if the present me vanished, my words from the past can still make its way to the future! Yes, this is a journey to the future! This is something can't be done by the phone microwave, yet anyone else can do it. I want to be in your heart! For the day where you can find me among the worldlines!"
*Kurisu bursts into the lab, just when Okabe hits the key*
Kurisu: Sayonara! Okabe...! I... I love you!
-The end -
