Hey. I know the network's in a panic because it's looked like the end of the world since Amicus. It will be the end of the world, if we don't do something. But calm down, because we are doing something. There are a lot of people out there who are strong enough to help, and a lot of us are. No matter who we are, we're not going to let this get any worse.

I used to fight because I could. Because I wanted to show off. Because there were people I wanted to impress -- not that I ever managed to make them like me the way I wanted them to. I might still be doing that even now. But... I've made friends who I know care about me, and for someone like me, that's a big deal. Those people are the ones who taught me what my friends back where I lived before were trying to get through my head. Fighting to save people should be done for its own sake. You do this kind of thing to keep everyone safe.

I will keep everyone safe. ...I shouldn't say that. Nobody can be perfect, even if I always thought I could. But I'll do everything I can to protect the rest of you and this world. After all this, we'll rebuild from everything that's happened over the past three years, or however long this has been going on. Because that's what we do.

And by "we" I mean "everyone".

I won't lie about who I am anymore. I'll admit that I've made a few mistakes. That I still hope people have heard of me when I meet them, and that I can't stand it when they haven't. That I have a stupid tendency to be attracted to people who run off into the sunset with annoyingly useful idiots even when I saw them first. That my powers and my strength and the form I spend most of my time in came from getting into magic that common sense says I should have stayed away from, and that everything that makes me a hero was something I just made up after listening to too much Steel Samurai.

But you know what? I can punch the ground and crack it. I can turn rose petals into deadly weapons and move the air around me. Even if it's strength I wasn't born with, it's part of me now. I have friends I care about, I have dreams even if some of them won't ever come true, and I'm going to protect those friends and those dreams with everything I've got. If you're fighting, too, then keep fighting for your own dreams and your own friends and our world. If you're not, if you can't, then keep doing what you can do.

It -- the whole secret heroine thing -- might have been a dumb idea, or at least my friends tell me that it was. But even if it's ridiculous, even if it's just something I made up, it's a part of me. This is what I can do, and I'm going to do it because I want to and because I have to.

Because I'm Mimino Kurumi... because I'm really Milk from Palmier Village...

Because I'm the one and only undefeatable Milky Rose!

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.
