Kazham! We’re here! We’re really, really here!

We got our airship passes and everything and I don’t think Jenare even believed we actually would but we did! Hah!

…But what’s that guy want with so many keys, anyway? Well, whatever, I guess. Weirder things have happened. And keep happening.

So, so, airship! We rode an airship here, and it was cool and you could see everything from up there! We even saw the Star Tree! And it’s so fast, too! I mean, I mean, it makes ferries and chocobos seem like crawling. And walking! Hah, might as well be standing still! Too bad the normal airship passes to the three nations is so pricey. Wish we’d get some weirdo deal for one of those, too. Ah well…

So! Kazham! We’re here! It’s so warm and beautiful and comfortable, mmmm~! And everything is mithra height, it’s great!

Everyone seems pretty different from the mithra in Windurst, though. Even I feel kinda out of place. But most of them aren’t nearly as rough.

I think mom mentioned she was born here, but went to Windurst a little before the Crystal War. It’s been a while, but I wanted to see if I could find her old house or something. But… I couldn’t find anything. Most of the people I met were too young to have known her anyway, and the older ones… well, they wouldn’t even talk anymore after I mentioned she left. Someone finally told me that once a mithra leaves Kazham, she could never come back. I guess that’s why mom never talked about it much. I wonder if I should get her a souvenir, or if that’d just make it worse.

Oh, but, everyone – er, well, almost everyone – is friendly to Jenare and me. Adventuring sure has its perks, huh? It’s like we get special recognition everywhere.

Speaking of adventuring, we met another adventurer today, and he’s staying at the same place as us. At least I think he is one? He was really… noticeable, at least – er, well, that’s to say, he’s elvaan. Hehe, I thought Jenare would be the only tall weirdo here right now. Anyway, Magriffon – the elvaan we met, I mean – was certainly a lot more talkative than a certain travel companion of mine. He even offered to help us with whatever we needed.

…What do we need help with, anyway? Ah well, I guess it’s good to keep in mind.

I wonder how long we’re gonna stay in Kazham. I kinda like it here. It’s even warmer than Windurst, and there’s a constant smell of sea and lots of plants I don’t recognize. Everything’s green and flowery, and they all glow at night! And they’re all natural, not like the Rhinostery’s experiments. Every day seems so peaceful, hunting, fishing, harvesting…

How did everyone manage to bring themselves to leave, anyway, knowing they’d never, ever be allowed to come back? Mom, and the Chieftainness – ours, I mean, Windursts’s – and so many other mithra of their generation.

I guess it’s a bit like the reason I’d never settle down here, no matter how much I like it. The world needs us! Even if it’s an arrogant thought, we’ve still gotta do everything we can. And besides, there’s still practically a whole world we haven’t seen yet!

But, but! We can still come here whenever we want. Mom and Perih Vashai and them… they can’t, not ever. Even though everyone talked about the Chieftainness’s exploits. Even though they did so much. They still can’t go home…

Even if it’s not the same, I don’t think I’d be able to stand leaving Windurst forever. How strong was their need?

Well. No point worrying about that. Let’s all try our best!
