(Player and Chirithy chill at the Fountain Plaza when all of a sudden, Ephemera approaches. Player rushes to greet him.)
Ephemera: Hey! Long time no see!
I've been so busy lately that I haven't been able to come see you, but it looks like you've been working hard at your missions, as always.
Chirithy: I could say the same thing of you. I bet you've been super busy since you became a Union Leader, right?
Ephemera: I guess I have been doing a lot of running around.
Chirithy: Skuld too?
Ephemera: Yeah, I'm so glad to have her. She's a huge help.
Chirithy: You do sound busy. Then what are you doing here?
Ephemera: There's someone who wants to meet Player. You know the five union leaders, right?
(Lauriam approaches and introduces himself.)
Lauriam: Pleased to meet you. My name is Lauriam. I'm a union leader just like Ephemera.
There's something I want to ask you… Is that okay?
(Player nods. Moments later…)
Ephemera: So you don't know after all…
Lauriam: But it does clear something up.
Lauriam: Well now, I shall take my leave. I have another engagement.
Chirithy: You're both leaving already?
(Lauriam starts to head off, but Ephemera stays.)
Ephemera: No, I'm going to spend today with Player.
Lauriam: Player, thank you for today.
This may not make sense to you, but I would like you to please remember Strelitzia.
Lauriam: Thank you.
(Player and Ephemera watch him leave. Afterwards, Player eagerly tries to get Ephemera’s attention.)
Player: So, where should we go?
Ephemera: Let's see…
(Lauriam goes back by the abandoned warehouse to meet with Elrena.)
Lauriam: What's up?
Elrena: Ah! I'm sorry to call you out like this.
Lauriam: No, don't worry about it. It's thanks to you that I've been able to make some progress.
Elrena: You have? I'm glad.
The truth is, I've found out something myself.
(Elrena gestures towards the abandoned warehouse.)
Elrena: After we talked, I went inside that building to check it out…
(Flashback! Elrena and Chirithy enter the warehouse.)
Chirithy: This place is kinda creepy…
(They slowly progress further into the warehouse but stop abruptly after being startled.)
Chirithy: Who's there!?
(However, no one’s there.)
Chirithy: How about we stop?
Elrena: Y-yeah ok…
(They turn around and proceed to head out, when all of a sudden a figure glitches in and out, scaring them.)
Chirithy: Something's heeeeeere!
(The figure continues to glitch out but is visible as Strelitzia cradling her Chirithy in their final moments.)
Glitched Strelitzia: …You kn… what
(“Strelitzia” proceeds to walk away from Elrena and Chirithy.)
Elrena: Oh! Wait!
(The glitched Strelitzia fades away completely.)
Chirithy: W-what on earth was that...
(End flashback. Lauriam is in shock. He gets up and charges into the warehouse.)
Elrena: Ah! Wait, please!
(Inside the warehouse, Lauriam frantically calls for Strelitzia.)
(He realizes she’s not there. Elrena and Chirithy approach him.)
Elrena: We've tried coming in and out over and over, but it only happened that once…
Elrena: And, also…
Chirithy: Also, I remembered something else I heard, the last time I talked to Strelitzia's Chirithy...
(Flashback to the last time E-Chirithy and S-Chirithy saw each other.)
E-Chirithy: They've caught her eye… but she doesn't even know their name?
S-Chirithy: Pretty much.
E-Chirithy: Why does she want to invite them into the Dandelions?
S-Chirithy: Well… I can't say yet. But, Strelitzia wants to save them from the big battle that's about to happen, or so she sa—
(The Chirithys notice Player and Skuld entering the warehouse.)
S-Chirithy: Sorry, I have to hurry back to Strelitzia!
(S-Chirithy disappears, leaving behind the confused E-Chirithy.)
Lauriam: From the "big battle that's about to happen"...
He definitely said that?
Elrena: That's what Lady Ava was talking about in her speech, right? But it didn't happen in the end. Weird, huh.
Lauriam (thinking): Strelitzia was sure the Keyblade War would happen? Why??
(Lauriam flashbacks to what Brain said.)
Brain: And your sister wanted to invite them into the Dandelions for some reason, when you say she was hesitating herself.
Lauriam: Perhaps Brain can help figure this out.
(Brain, Ven and Skuld are back in the Foreteller’s Room. Ven and Skuld are leafing through some books as Brain is reading the Book of Prophecies as always. Ven keeps glancing over at Brain but eventually gets noticed.)
Brain: What's up, Ven?
Ven: Oh, nothing. Just, you're always reading that book, so I was wondering if there was something specific you were looking up.
Skuld: Hey, yeah. I thought Ephemera was curious, but you're something else, Brain.
(Brain doesn’t take his eyes off the Book of Prophecies.)
Brain: I have a goal, you see.
Skuld: A goal?
Brain: Right now, we are still walking the path of a ruined destiny.
Brain: I'm going to rewrite it.
(Brain lifts his hat up, showing his eyes for the first time.)
Brain: This world is moving along a fixed path - of ruin. Overwriting the memories of the Keyblade War didn't change that. I'm going to become the virus that rewrites the program that is this destiny.
