Natani: When my parents died… one of the reasons I pursued magic was because I wanted to bring them back. I was naive, but I think that’s why a lot of people get into magic. To change what can’t be changed.
Natani: Years later, while perfecting the spell, I tried testing it… on myself.
Natani: But I was so young when I lost them, and it was so long ago.
Young Natani: Mom? Dad?
Natani: They… they had no face. I couldn’t remember their faces. Their voices.
Natani: I know it wouldn’t be the same for you. But… trust me. It’s just an illusion made from memories. It’s not real, and it won’t make anything any better.
Keith: I know. I don’t have any delusions about bringing her back.
Keith: I just wish I could say goodbye. Even if it wasn’t real.
