To whoever finds this:
By the time you read this, me and Ryuhou'll be long gone. Where, I ain't exactly sure, but I think... I hope
we found a way back to our world. Who the fuck knows, though--we might just end up on Crazy Fucking Island, or something; you never can tell. It's a chance, though, at least, and we both mean to take it.
To all our friends, sorry we didn't get a chance to say goodbye in person, but we don't know how long this...portal thing--or whatever the hell it is--will be here, and we didn't want to take a chance on missing it. Doc...Hanatarou...Samus...Giovanni... I don't know what to say to you guys... It was great knowing you--and who knows? Maybe we'll run into each other again sometime. Anyways...wish us luck.
I know you said before that you wanted to stay here with Alfons...but maybe I should've told you about this anyways... I don't know. If you ever change your mind about wanting to go back, do me a favor, though, and don't
. I have my reasons.
As Kazuma said, we'll be gone by the time you find this. I wish I could take some of you with us, but I don't think anyone but Alter users can survive the way we're going.
I've learned so much on this island, changed so much... I hope this stays with me where I'm going. I have to believe it will. At least Kazuma and I are going together.
To my friends: Cloud, Alfons, Dr. Tam, Keele, Samus... Orochimaru, if you're still here... I'll miss you all, and I'll take these memories with me. Goodbye, everyone. May you find your own ways home safely.
