[Door Opens]

Hilda

Congratulations. Your performance went so well.

ConneR

 What a pleasant surprise. Ms. Turner, what brings you here?

Hilda

I just wanted to say thank you... That day, when the structure was about to collapse, I discovered that someone had opened up the safety route... and those kind words left behind.

ConneR

 Ha. A little late, wouldn't you say? It wasn't much for me to do. Plus, that journey of ours was very beneficial to me. Helping the two of you was merely a bonus. No need to think much of it.

Hilda

Beneficial? What could you have gotten out of it? I saw you flee the room...

ConneR

 Sorry, m' lady. Before you pointed that trembling firearm at me, I had already stashed away those fragmentary documents, including the patient records... Perhaps you should have paid more attention to what my back hand was doing.

Hilda

You sneaky bastard...!

ConneR

 Haha. Don't get all riled up. Thanks to this, you've got a lot more things to deal with regarding Mr. Turner's condition. It's just the two of us who are in on the secret. Would you like to hear my thoughts on the matter?
[Fast Forward]

Hilda

You mean... The time he comes from... existed long, long ago. Is that right?

ConneR

 That's right. Mr. Turner received treatment while in a state of cryopreservation. But, due to a series of unexpected events, hundreds of years passed before him... That is my theory.

Hilda

ConneR

 Very much like Arabian Nights, no? I never even considered that as a possibility. I was misled by my own prejudices, which caused an error in my judgment... Ha. A bit pathetic, actually.

Hilda

So, the story that is contained in that piece of music... was implanted into his memory. That's why he keeps having that dream?

ConneR

 I think "integrated" would be a better way of putting it. Melody, emotion, story... These mediums stimulate our perception. To the ancients, they were all similar concepts. They didn't just possess transformative technology; they used it to create chips like the one we found to try and save people's lives. It's just that after hundreds of years, the story began to cover Mr. Turners actual memories…

Hilda

So, that's why he's forgotten about the time he came from. He lost his loved ones... and even his name was taken away... by that story...

ConneR

 As for that, I tend to look at it from another perspective

Hilda

...? What do you mean?

ConneR

 Although I'm not familiar with all aspects of the story, such overwhelming warmth and grief must have touched Mr. Turner deeply... To tell you the truth, based on his medical records, that's precisely why the medical team used it to stabilize his psychological condition.

Hilda

….

ConneR

 Yes, a terribly unfortunate accident certainly occurred, but from the point of view of his family, the medical team, and even Mr. Turner himself, surely none of them would feel regret at the decision they made at that time... Otherwise, his piano playing wouldn't be so crisp, so full of emotion.

Hilda

You mean... taking on that simulated memory, was Hans' schoice?

ConneR

 I can't speak for him, but... simulation and reality are not absolutely distinct, binary concepts. The line between the two is not as clear as we imagine it to be. All of us ought to think more like this.

Hilda

... After hearing that piano piece, I can understand why you'd say that. Perhaps it's true.

ConneR

 Oh? We agree on something? What a rare treat. Speaking of which, the simulation database we found in the central control room, did you give it to the Exploration Team?

Hilda

The chip? Of course. Something that important should be given to A.R.C. to preserve and take care of.

ConneR

 Again with the mindless thoughts. What a pity. If you had given it to me, we'd be able to unlock it's greatest potential... But a chip that damaged, it may not even be possible to fix... We'll see how good A.R.C. actually is.

Hilda

Ha. Don't be so sure of yourself. This was a secret mission. Captain Edwards couldn't do whatever he wanted... But if you keep this up, A.R.C. is going to make you into a Level 1 fugitive. You barely got away.

ConneR

 Oh, come now. Ms. Turner, how unexpected that you show concern for me.

Hilda

Don't kid yourself. It's only because Hans sees you as his teacher that I bring it up... Whatever you choose to do, that's up to you.

ConneR

 Fickle, fickle... In any case, have I helped Mr. Turner find a passion outside of playing the piano?

Hilda

Do I dare say? He wants to become an explorer and dig up more ancient melodies... Geez, if you hadn't swindled him, perhaps he would have found some other interests. But look, you've got him interested in such a dangerous profession!

ConneR

 Haha. What a wonderful set of events... Is he still undergoing  exploration training?

Hilda

It's wrapped up. Since his application is unique, his training wasn't as rigorous as the formal Exploration Team's... Which is good. He won't be able to go out there as much.

ConneR

 Nevertheless, he'll have to hand over his findings to A.R.C., what shame….

Hilda

Hmph. Don't think he's like you, no regard for the law. That's what he decided. He didn't want his choice to be influenced by either one of us.

ConneR

 Oh... Hehe... Haha... HAHAHA!!!

Hilda

... ls something funny?

ConneR

 Momma bird can no longer protect her pretty, little baby boy... What a pity. But all is well. I wish him the best on his journeys. He heads out today, is that correct?

Hilda

 !? How'd you know... Wait a second! How'd you know about his training...?

ConneR

 Don't underestimate my sources, Ms. Turner. The train is about to leave. Aren't you going to escort him? If you see him again, I'm sure you won't have much time to talk.

Hilda

... No. We've spoken enough.

ConneR

 Ah... I see.

Hilda

But if you want to see him off, you should have enough time to catch up with him... I'm sure he'd like to see you.

ConneR

 No. No need.

Hilda

Okay... Up to you.

ConneR

 Ah, yes. Ms. Turner, allow me to take one more moment of your time. I'm curious. Did you always know about the hole in the back of his head?

Hilda

...I don't know what you're talking about.

ConneR

 Okay?

Hilda

If anyone knows about this, he'll be taken away for sure. So, that answer will never change. I am very selfish, after all. I must be going.

ConneR

 Humans are naturally selfish. Yet this quality is not born out of blind greed, but out of concern for others... That is to say, love... Ha. Humans... Perhaps they're more valuable than I imagined them to be.
