[Wherever you are in the city, if you're in the know, then you're getting a signal from a scanner. A different scanner than you're probably used to.]

I realize this morning has been chaotic, but we need everyone who can come immediately to the base to do so. We need to regroup and get ready for the last battle, things have become very dire.

I, ah, apologize for telling you all so informally as a message of this sort, but, there is no easy way for me to say this.

Chiharu Miyagi - Paru, as most of you know her - has died.


[Needless to say, the tone in the base is bleak, but the group has been called together none the less, to plan, to prepare, and to mourn.]

...Kuzuki.

[There's no tone in her voice. But...]

[There's a sort of world-weariness to his voice, a bit of a rasp that's hard to make out but there none-the-less.]

Izumi.

...[And she simply reaches up, a hand on his shoulder. Which may or may not be shaking slightly. It's the only comfort she can offer to a man she doesn't know that well.]

...I don't know if I can fake it long enough to end this, on my own.

[She needs his help to end this. When it's over, she can cry. They can mourn. When it's done.]

[It takes him a moment, maybe a couple, before he can reach up, and grab her hand for a second, and then look up. There's a certain... age to Isao's complexion, he looks older than he actually is, but he's already getting some of that fire back.]

I think I've still got one more ride in me.

One will be enough. I'll make sure of it.

[If she has to rip a deity's face right off, she'll make goddamn sure of it.]

I think one more's all any of us are getting, if the information we have is right. We'll have to make it count... for her.

...I won't let it end for all of us here. I--I made a promise.

[And she will save this city and the people in it, because she...she cannot break that promise now.]

[Stretching his prosthetic hand, shaking it out with a bit of exhaust.]

Keep yours, then. I failed mine.

[She smiles, almost--brittle.]

Then make me one. Promise me...promise me you won't let me forget.

[She has to protect them all, even if she has to change the entire world to do it.]
