That was decisive!
Ahhh, thank you! Thank you so much!
After 622 long years, I'll have a body once again! Ahhh... what a wonderful thought...
Things will finally maybe be the way they always should have been... I'll get to relearn what touch is like...
...there's a lot of difficult things that will still be in my way, but... Still, I'm looking forward to it!
...I saw that message you got, the one that was in Korean, from the historical society. I know that it said they wanted me to testify.
I've been really nervous to mention it, because the idea is so scary, but...
Your body, your choice.
Ah... that's a really tough decision.
Thank you for trusting me to make it!
I think... if you were at my side, I think I might be able to.
I guess it's important that everyone knows the truth about what happened on the Mugunghwa. And... I was part of that.
But only if you're by my side!
Otherwise, I'd never have the strength to go in front of a bunch of inquisitors alone... But if you were there, I think I'd have the strength! That's how you make me feel.
Well... anyway, I suppose it's now almost time to begin star system entry procedures.
Even from out here, I can see Earth on the visual sensors, and... it's gorgeous, isn't it? Wow...
No matter what happens, no matter how bad I feel about what I've learned...
...no matter how much I need to learn about people, no matter how hard it is to be a proper adult...
No matter what, I'm going to take all the things that shaped me, that shaped what kind of ship I grew up on, and I'm going to try to put them behind me.
Even if there's still so much ahead of me, thank you so much for rescuing me. Thank you for being here for me. Thank you for saving me from that prison, and putting up with me.
I know it seemed really sudden when I confessed, but the fact that you're that kind of person... I still love you for that!
From now on, I'm going to look forwards towards the future, towards that gorgeous blue planet... I'm sure I won't be able to look back, with you by my side!
Got a long day of re-entry bureaucracy ahead of us.
I guess that's all, then!
Next time we talk... we'll be on Earth! I can't wait, I can't wait!
Next, I'm going to go through alternate dialogue/events on the *Hyun-ae route. For the remaining content, let's put it to a vote one more time: What should *Hyun-ae wear?
Choices are, as usual: Schoolgirl, Maid, Pale Bride's Hanbok, Detective, Scientist, and Hyun-ae's Hanbok. Voting to close on Friday.
