[ When Maya opens the door, Phoenix has actually made a miniscule effort to clean his room. By which I mean he shoved everything off the desk, and there's only an envelope sitting on it now. When she opens the envelope, she'll see a letter, a picture and a golden locket. The letter is written in Phoenix's scrawling handwriting. ]

Maya,

Haha... I should start with an apology. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry for everything I put you through this week. And I'm sorry for lying to you. I've guess I've known since you told me about your sister's death that you must be the adorable spirit medium that always took care of me and made sure I didn't mess up. I just didn't want to say it because it would mean that you were here. Trapped. But when I saw your incentive this week, I couldn't just keep standing by and doing nothing. This way, you and Pearls will both be safe.

You haven't gone through it yet, but you will. So I think you deserve to know. It's been 8 years since we met and my life wouldn't be the way it is if it weren't for you. Kurain wouldn't be the same without you. There are so many of us that would be missing so much in our lives if you were gone. Kurain needs you. Pearls needs you. I know you'll be the best Master Kurain will ever have. There'll be a few bumps along the way, but I'll still be there to help you along. By the time I'm gone, you won't even need me anymore.

You're probably furious with me right now and you can't even ask me questions anymore, but I have one more favour to ask. The girl in the picture and the locket. Her name is Trucy Wright. Yes, I wrote that right, don't look so surprised. She's my daughter. I know you were somewhere else before you came here, but I have faith you'll find your way home. I don't know how all this time traveling works, but when you get home, if one day I'm suddenly not around anymore... take care of her for me, okay?

But don't forget to take care of yourself too.

Love,
Nick

P.S. Remember... It's a stepladder.

[ 'Thanks.... A lot,

Maya.'


It takes all of his strength not to react. Not with Apollo standing right there.

She wrote him a goodbye letter... Because she thought she wouldn't survive all of this. And even then, there's barely anything about herself or how she feels in it. If it's not about him, it's Kurain, and how can she even think they could be better off without her? He doesn't know what he would've done without her all those years, from right after he got disbarred to bringing Trucy to Kurain for visits when he was still learning how to take care of a young child.

She means more to him than she knows... That's why he did this. To her. She'll never forgive him, and he knows that. He doesn't deserve forgiveness. He just needs to know that she'll be safe. Even if it didn't work out exactly as planned, but... it'll be fine. They'll be fine. Pearls and Maya... for him. It's not a fair trade in any sense of the word, but... it's enough.

He closes the notebook and hands it back to Apollo. ]


You should give this back to her. Now.

[ On Tuesday morning, after all the chloroform business has been finished and tidied up, Phoenix will look for Nanami. ]

Morning. Looks like we shouldn't have to worry about chloroform in cases from here on.

"You've reached the Wright guy. Leave a message, and I'll get back to you. Maybe."

In canon, Phoenix has an object called a magatama which lets him see when someone is lying. Because it requires someone with spirit power to recharge it all the time, I've converted it into an actual superpower for him.

Ability to tell when someone is lying... via being able to see a giant lock slam over his view of them. I'm basically adapting his canonical ability to see when someone is hiding something and expose it, via a spiritually charged stone, into an actual innate power. The more severe/complicated the lie, the more locks there'll be. If he can get the person to speak some degree of truth about the topic, then the amount locks will shatter accordingly to let him know they're starting to open up. This is not confined only to someone who is speaking to him, but only if he can hear them.

Of course, just because he sees it doesn't mean he necessarily has to point it out. So feel free to comment here if you'd prefer for him to not bring it up, or if you think your character has reason why it won't work on them!
