[She throws a quick filter in the journal, just in case the new arrivals from the other castle got their own journals. This isn't meant for them.]
So it looks like the castle's finally letting us go...
[She doesn't sound thrilled. It's true she wants to go back home, to have a normal life with her friends again. But the castle's been her home for two years. Exactly two years on this day, even.]
Is anyone staying? I kinda want to, just for a little while. So we can really say goodbye and stuff. I mean, I've known some of you guys longer than I even knew my friends back home. That's really weird to think about...
[She's not sure where she's going with this. But she wants to say something, before everyone leaves and they probably never see each other again.]
I wish I could stay with some of you, even without this place. Sheena, Wade-san, Sugar-chan... I almost want to ask all of you to come with me. But that's just being selfish... and anyway, we probably won't remember any of this, if it's like when the castle usually sends us home.
[There's a pause, and people might think she's done. But after a moment, she continues, sounding a little more hopeful.]
But... maybe it won't be goodbye forever? Some of us might be from the same world, or travel to different worlds like Wade-san. I might meet Utena-neechan when she's grown up in my time, and Chihiro-chan might come see my concerts with all her friends. I might even visit America and see Nora-chan... or Alex...
[She has to pause again after that thought. It hurts that she was taken, even more that she had to go through so much while she was here. But if Rise goes home... maybe she's still out there somewhere. Maybe they could even be together again...?
It's a nice thought, if a bit bittersweet. She won't count on any of this, but she can remain hopeful.]
Anyway... whether it's forever or not, I guess I'm just not ready to say goodbye. But I know I'll have to, and I want you all to know how important you are to me before anyone goes.
[That's where it ends for the general population, but there's one last part under a filter.]
[Filtered to close CR - Wade, Sugar, Sheena, Conan (yes, he counts), anyone else left who thinks they might count]
This sounds really cheesy, but... I love you. Even if I don't remember, I'll miss you, and I really hope we meet again someday.
