I... I know this is probably the worst possible time to be bringing this up. *sigh* On the other hand, though, important things like this always get revealed when the book or the play or the radio show's about to end, don't they? I mean, I'm not saying we're going to die! It's the opposite! We're going to defeat that snake, and then we're going to finish this -- whatever this is -- anyway, it'll be over!

Hmph. Anyway, that wasn't what I was going after. What I mean to say is... I have the filter on right, don't I? Okay, good.

*takes a deep breath* I...

I'm not a real human. ...I'm just pretending. This isn't even the form I was born with. My body mutated when I got into something I shouldn't have. I can transform back to my original form, but going around like this is a lot easier. It's a real drain on mana, though. That's why I always carry my weapon on me, even when we went to the bathhouse.

Some of you already know this. I didn't hide it around the people I knew before, on the Way, because... well, we were all weird there. I've told a couple people here, too, but not many. I guess I could have gone without hiding it, but I didn't want to. People will always look at you differently. Just trust me on that, okay?

My name... it's Milk. Milk from Palmier Village. But just keep on calling me Kurumi, okay? It-- it took a long time to come up with a name like that!

...I did it. I actually did it.

I always wondered why the heck your parents named you "Milk".

It's a perfectly good name!

Not saying it isn't! But...why Milk?

My real name is Milk. Everyone in my settlement and most people in the ones around it had names like that. It's normal. I came up with "Mimino Kurumi" because it was the sort of name that sounded completely normal, but had a hidden clue to my identity -- the kind of name a hero has.

...No, it doesn't. There's not an L in Mimino Kurumi, Kurumi.

Well, yeah, not in Alphabetic Common! That's why it's clever, you see? If you write it in Syllabic Common, then flip it backwards, then put it back into Alphabetic Common, Milk becomes Miruku and then Kurumi. Obviously.

...Kurumi, I know Common and Al Bhed, even if it's a dead language. I have no idea what you just said.

Well, I thought it was a good idea.

...wait, you mean it wasn't obvious? Of course you're not human, you've got magic running off of you like a waterfall.

--Wait, you knew about that!?

Yes? Was it supposed to be a secret?

I didn't want anyone to find out about me! ...though I guess I'll admit that I have been using up magic every minute of the day just to keep looking like this, but come on, it's not like I'm the only one in the world who feels like that.

It was pretty obvious. To me, at least. I have a lot of experience with transformation magic.

Yes, one of my friends from back home specializes in it.

I guess there'd have to be someone like that...

...

Your outer form doesn't matter, Kurumi. What's important is your spark.

...I-I mean, heart.

Either way, I'm really glad to know you.

...Thanks, I think.

Yeah, constantly, when I'm in this form. It's why I depend on having the Mirror with me at all times.
