Entry Forty-Seven: December 31st, 2009

(Auto-transcribed voice post:)

Ryoji's here.

It's New Year's Eve. He's sitting here in my room.

He showed up this evening...

...right out of the blue.

Ryoji: So have you reached a decision?

Everyone nodded, myself included.

Ryoji: Don't let the fact that you'll have to kill me influence your decision. As I said before, I'm going to disappear anyways. I won't feel any pain by "dying", so there's no need to worry about me.

He headed up to my room.

Mitsuru asked if I'd made up my mind, and I nodded.

Akihiko: No need to ask me.
Yukari: You know how I feel.
Junpei: I wouldn't be here if I wasn't on board.
Fuuka: I'm with the rest of you.
Ken: I'm in, too.
Aigis: I have made my decision as well.

With that, I headed up to my room as well.

He was sitting on my bed waiting for me, like he is now.

He seemed much more calm than any of us...

...even though he knew what everyone had decided.

But then he brought up a good point...

...the others aren't here right now.

In the end, it turns out that it's nobody's decision but my own...and I guess in some sick way that makes sense.

Nobody else has had to bear the burdens I have, and now I get to decide what I want to I want to live the rest of my life.

It''s not up to anyone else at this point. My finger is the one on the trigger, and right now...I'm not afraid.

My life...
