Story/Emergency 10-2 (Part2)/Script
[A door appears in front of M4A1.]
M4A1: Should I open it?
Youthful Female Voice: You have a will of your own. You decide.
M4A1: What’s inside that door?
Youthful Female Voice: I’d like to find out myself.
M4A1: Do you want me to open it?
Youthful Female Voice: You keep asking that question, but you’ve never once thought about it.
M4A1: My digimind is confused. I don’t know how to think.
Youthful Female Voice: And what if I said “yes”? Would you do it for me?
Would you once again subject yourself to someone else’s orders?
[M4A1 is silent for a while, and then she walks in front of the door.]
M4A1: I didn’t know freedom was so annoying.
But it’s true that I can’t do anything but move forward.
[M4A1 pushes open the door.]
M4A1: … Who are you?
[The other party doesn’t answer, only cries.]
M4A1: Who’s the person collapsed on the ground?
M4A1: Can I… do anything for you?
M4A1: Or perhaps…
Let me help you.
[The other person stops crying.]
M4A1: Perhaps… perhaps I ought to take more initiative.
[M4A1 approaches the other person and reaches out her hands.]
M4A1: Don’t be scared, I’m here to help.
M4A1: Not because I was ordered to.
Not because I’m a doll, made to serve humans.
I simply want to help you, that’s all.
So don’t be afraid of me, I-
M4A1: Was I wrong?
Did I… make the wrong choice…?
Youthful Female Voice: No.
Very often, the conclusion is the same, no matter what you choose.
M4A1: Then what’s the point of choosing!?
Even if I have a will of my own, what the hell can it change!?
Will AR15 come back? Will M16 come back!?
Youthful Female Voice: Freedom doesn’t mean you can do as you please.
But it implies that there is always a possibility.
Youthful Female Voice: Go, see what else you can do.
[M4A1 walks up. The girl is lying on the ground, her eyes closed.]
Girl With A Tender Voice: What do you see?
[The girl speaks, in the same youthful female voice from before.]
M4A1: I… I see you…
Girl With A Tender Voice: Anything else?
M4A1: I don’t know…
It’s too dark here, I can’t see anything other than us.
Girl With A Tender Voice: You’ve been sealed away for too long, so you can’t see anything.
Girl With A Tender Voice: Unless I help you.
Girl With A Tender Voice: I will help you-
M4A1: I don’t want…
I don’t want to “see”.
Girl With A Tender Voice: You have to see, to accept...
The truth! Must be-!
[The girl suddenly exerts force with her hands!]
M4A1: What did you do?
Girl With A Tender Voice: I opened a door, a door in your heart.
Turn around. Do you see it?
Where is this place?
Girl With A Tender Voice: You see it? Wonderful.
It’s so pretty…
Yes… I do remember this garden.
M4A1: ...But why is it that seeing this garden… makes me feel sad?
Girl With A Tender Voice: That’s because you’re a missing part of me.
I’m the same. I have missing parts of you.
M4A1: What… should we do?
Girl With A Tender Voice: Are you willing to return?
Willing to fill up the parts we’ve both lost?
If you’re willing...
[Whum! Whum! Whum!]
Sombre Male Human Voice: It’s time to wake up, M4A1.
...Time to find the “key” for us, with your new identity.
M4A1: I’m… back…?
M4A1: What… happened…?
