I'm back, but it was nearly a disaster! I arrived in front of the Otherworldly Gate just moments before my past self entered the portal. I was directly behind my past self and lost balance and accidentally pushed my past self into that portal. Both of 'us' almost fell in! I hope this doesn't affect anything in the timeline... I'm familiar with space-time and how time works in general, but I'm no expert. I can only imagine what Kratos' reaction would have been if two of me showed up in Derris Kharlan.
Luckily that didn't happen and I got to give Raine the flower I picked. She's examining it now. Also, I'm not allowed near the Otherworldly Gate ever again since she thinks I'll end up back on Derris Kharlan.
Anyway, I asked her about Lloyd, but apparently he had to go to Mizuho to see Sheena. Origin wanted to talk to them about something privately, so I'll have to wait to give him this Cruxis crystal. While I wait I might as well do something fun. Raine doesn't have anymore tasks for me at the moment, so I have some free time.
