[One moment, he was with them. A momentary break after their latest victory, “he” conquered Babel’s trial and became King of Bel. They’re about to depart the building for “him” to declare war.

Only for Atsuro to found himself in a startling familiar city: Prospero.

Just like that, he remembered. His time spent in this city, trying to unravel the mysteries, helping everyone with what he can do, fighting off Shadows, facing his own Shadow and insecurities... facing Madoka’s confessions and reciprocating it. Talking with Naoya when “his” departure was no longer a stinging pain. Just dulled.

Atsuro checked the phone for the date. If he remembered correctly, he’s been gone for about a week. A week away from this city for a week in something akin to ‘hell’, a place filled with desperation and people driven to survival at any cost. It’s almost funny...but Atsuro’s still mentally tired to laugh at it.

Scrolling through the contact list, almost frantically, for people he knows here. He sighed in relief, not knowing he’s holding his breath, when he saw their names.

He took his time to control himself, so any signs of his tiredness wouldn’t show. But it may slip out.]

Hey, everyone. Atsuro here... Sorry for disappearing on you guys but…I’m back.

Soooo, what did I miss, guy? I know I got like, a week's worth of class notes and homework to catch up! And I hope my boss will let me come back... And I'll get back to working on the database as soon as I can!

[Private to Naoya]
[Unlike his earlier video, he's more serious.] ...Naoya, I'm back from the lockdown.

[He was gone. She didn't even get to apologize for what happened. She didn't get to clear up any misunderstandings.

She remembers this feeling. She felt it many times back home, and the last time she felt it on this island was when she didn't see Homura again.

Even though she's familiar with this pain, it still hurts.

Madoka continues to wallow in the depths of her sorrow on the floor of her dorm room, burying her face into her arms as she hugged her knees. She's still unaware that the video feed was on...]

[Madoka smiles at the camera as she holds up a cellophane bag full of these beauties.]

Hello, everyone! My boss taught me how to mold chocolate, and I made a lot of these! I don't think it would be fair if some people went through Valetine's Day without chocolate, so if you'd like some, just tell me your address and I'll mail them to you. They should get there before Valentine's Day!


Atsuro! Yours is special, so are you free right now? I-I'd like to give it to you in person...

[The video feed turns on to show a far more chipper Madoka, who has finally recovered from the loss of pretty much all her friends from her world.]

It seems we have a lot more people now! So I guess I'll reintroduce myself...

[She gives a small bow to the camera.]

Welcome to Prospero! It's very nice to meet you, everyone! My name is Madoka Kaname, and I'm one of the people who have been on this island for a very long time.

For those who know Atsuro Kihara, I'm kind of like his assistant for the Shadow Database he's been working on. This is because of my Persona's special ability to locate Shadows and scan their attributes.

[Madoka's gazes goes up to the ceiling, as if very deep in thought.]

Mmmm... I guess what I'm trying to say is...
If anyone needs support while they're wandering around the Dark Hour, please don't hesitate to ask for my help? I can also heal and attack from far away, so I hope that can be useful! I want to collect more and more data, and help everyone through this!

And, umm... What else? Ah! [With a nod of realization, she goes back to smiling at the camera.] If you've got any questions, I'll do my best to answer!

Hey, does anyone know a good way to make money?

Or know of any place that will hire thirteen-year-olds?

[The worry in Madoka's voice is very obvious, despite her attempts to hide it.]

Has anyone seen Sayaka-chan? She's a student in the middle school division of the Academy, has short hair, wears yellow hairclips all the the time, and she's really loud... I haven't seen her for a while, so I'm really worried.

If anyone has seen her, I'd very much appreciate it if you would let me know. Th-Thank you so very much.

[Guess who actually bothered to look at the calendar today? Madoka sighs as she gives the camera a very depressed and grim expression.]

... So much happened and I ended up missing my birthday. I didn't expect to be turning fifteen here, let alone with something so horrible happening.

Even though it's only three days late, it just... feels wrong to celebrate it, knowing so many people died.

[The video feed turns on to show the very worried face of a young girl. Getting knocked unconscious was already bad enough, but Madoka didn't recognize this area at all. It was way different from the vibrant town of Mitakihara. To pile more things onto her heap of worries, she had no idea how the ordeal of Kyouko and Sayaka's witch ended up. Did everything go as they had hoped? Maybe they were here too... She didn't like using other people's belongings, but it was the fastest way to get her bearings.]

Um... My name is Madoka Kaname, and I go to Mitakihara Middle School. I don't know where I am... So, I would really appreciate it if someone could tell me what's going on. [She gives a nod to substitute for a polite bow.] Th-Thank you very much for listening to this.

[Wait... That's right. She almost forgot that this wasn't her phone.]

Oh, and um... If the person this phone belongs to is listening, I'm really sorry for using up your minutes! It's just... it's an emergency and I'm not sure what else I could have done. I promise to return it as soon as I can!
