Sayaka: A little kindness made you a friend.
(silent nod, as she goes to look back down at the Ultra Ball)
Sayaka: ...So back at the foundry place.
...Necrozma can open up Ultra Wormholes. Lets you go between worlds, usually unsafe but... I had the right protective equipment. Like, on my person.

Sayaka: Oh. So...you'd have been OK.
(nods, grimacing apropos to nothing)
......Oh. Yeah you should apologize for that.
Sayaka: ...I'm sorry. I just... ("looks" away) I wanted to give Homura a chance. To show that I had faith in her. And...I guess that I meant I didn't have any for you.
Val: Yeah...(looks away) So what's your name, Mister?
(shakes her head)
It's fine, I... I wanted to say more, but I don't think... I think you deserved better from me.
...I want to keep Necrozma a secret from everyone. Like, for real. The pact we have is the main thing keeping his pain numbed - keeping him from going crazy - but...

Sayaka: But what?
Just... don't worry about it. I keep him a secret, my pride's bound to be wounded. And if that's the worst casualty from that day on the foundry... then what kind of self-serving whiner would that make me?
(small, wry smile)
(as she looks away to try and not tear up)
-He smiles at her-
I'm Saitama. Thanks for the chat, kid.
Sayaka: ... It's hard to keep a secret, Akebono. You shouldn't have to feel bad if it gets to you like that. (Adjusts her position) Is that why you don't...really have a relationship with others back home?
Val: I'm Val. Nice to meet you, Saitama. (begins to walk away, stops for a moment) My daddy always liked to say, "a penny saved is a penny earned". But my mommy liked to say right after, "Copper and paper taste terrible."

...Like - Burnet knows. Lusamine, too. They let me use Necrozma's jumping ability to explore Ultra Space, and - that's how my thesis is coming together.
Other than that, though...
Sayaka: Burnet and Lusamine are...coworkers of yours?
...Well... almost like my bosses. They're starting a project on exploring Ultra Space, but... they aren't anywhere close to making a vehicle that can go through it.
(looks back down at the Ultra Ball)
...That's where I come in.
Sayaka: Right. Either way, they're involved with this too, aren't they?
Like... with what?
Sayaka: Necrozma, the two gods, that whole thing.
There were no two gods, Sayaka. Well - never separately. I was trying to say, like...
(closes eyes, exhaling)
...Necrozma always was the Blinding One. But then a friend of his betrayed him, and - and his body was shattered. It left him in great pain, and the only way to soothe it was to devour the same light that he once selflessly gave to others. To... to become the Pillager of Light.
Sayaka: Ohhhh...one became the other.
So, like... I don't want them to know I've got what they think is a demon on my team. Even if - even if that's far from the truth, I still...

Sayaka: And that's why you wanted to come after...
...Maybe. I - I really don't know.
Sayaka: Well, if there's one thing I learned, it's that it's actually kinda rare to do something for just one reason.
