Noel: Even the sentry bots couldn't handle those things.
The meteorite came down out towards Cocoon.
Huh? What's going on here?
Serah: Am I dreaming?
Noel: I see it too. Pretty sure it's no dream.
What is that?
Serah: Oh! Hey, Yuj.
Yuj: Hey. So this is the famous Noel, huh?
Noel: I guess news travels fast.
Yuj: Lebreau told me how you helped her out. I'm Yuj. Nice to meet you.
Noel: Hey, likewise.
Yuj: What's with the new styling threads, Serah? Not exactly a dress-up-and-hit-the-town kind of occasion.
Serah: You want to try them on? They might look better on you.
Yuj: I don't think so. Wouldn't want to show you up or anything.
Okay, I better get going. See you guys later.
Noel: More of them.
Serah: Maybe it's an illusion.
Maqui: Weird! How did these plants grow so fast? I don't get it. Must be pockets of unstable time or something.
Noel: More meteorite phenomena?
Maqui: You got that right. Look at this stuff. Ever since that rock came down, we've been seeing all kinds of aberrations.
Serah: Do you have any idea what's happening?
Maqui: Not the slightest clue. Some spots seem to have sped forward centuries. But other parts haven't changed at all.
Noel: So these areas are from different timelines, realities blending together, like two ages overlapping. That about right?
Maqui: Right! It's exactly like that!
Serah: I wonder, did that meteorite come from another world?
Maqui: Like another dimension or another time?
Noel: It fell here from Valhalla. Let's keep moving. If we learn more about the rock, then we'll know more.
Maqui: Man, I can't believe this!
Let's destroy that damn thing.
Is this really our town?
Noel: Cocoon is gone.
My eyes must be playing tricks on me.
This is not happening. This is not happening.
Gadot: What's going on?
Noel: We made it.
Serah: Wait up!
What is that place? Noel, do you know?
Serah: Wait. What happened to Cocoon? It's not there?
Noel: Well, you're looking at a different time. That's the world I come from. In my world, Cocoon doesn't exist. When I was born, the sky was already empty. Tell me, how many years has it been since Ragnarok appeared and Cocoon fell?
Serah: Well it's 3 AF. So that was three years ago.
Noel: For me, all that happened 700 years in the past. I was born and raised in another time, 700 years in the future.
Serah: Yes, I knew it. I knew you weren't from this world.
Noel: I'm the last of humanity.
Noel: Serah, I can take you there. We can find Lightning together. I know she wants to see you.
Gadot: You're full of it.
Maqui: Yeah, that's impossible.
Yuj: Lightning's gone, man.
Noel, do you know where my sister is?
Noel: Come with me.
Serah: What's happening?
Maqui: Whoa! Far out!
Noel: You see? It's a time gate.
Gadot: What do you mean, time gate?
Yuj: What the?
Noel: It's like a portal. Lightning is in a place called Valhalla. She's waiting on the other side.
Serah: I couldn't turn my eyes away. I knew the answer lay beyond that gate. The answer to my doubts and dreams.
On the broad plain beneath Cocoon, my sister once celebrated my marriage to Snow. I remember her smile like it was yesterday. But sometime, when I wasn't looking, she disappeared. She was gone as if she'd never been there in the first place.
Lighting, are you out there? Did I dream that day on pulse or did it really happen? Noel says he can find you. But is he telling the truth?
