Beachfront - After waking up, talk to Lebreau for a Live Trigger: (Everything looks the way it did before I left on my journey. What is this place?), then enter Town Square. Address Gadot for a Live Trigger: (Gadot says I have it easy. How should I respond=),Talk to Yuj for another Live Trigger: (Yuj is acting like nothing happened. What should I talk to him about first?), and finally Maqui: (Maqui says someone is waiting at NORA house. What does he mean?).
Next walk inside NORA house to find somebody important... everybody's gone. Return to Town Square and find the Live Trigger Cube that appeared southwest from NORA House.
Walk to the pier opposite of NORA's house and talk to the familiar woman standing there for a Live Trigger (Lightning is showing me the world of hope. Should I quit the journey and stay with her? / Triangle).
PARADOX ENDING - This is the first of paradox endings you can get without beating the game or becoming very powerful. At the offered Live Trigger press Triangle to get paradox ending (07/08), as well as AF00X NEW BODHUM FRAGMENT - Transcript: Fate and Freedom (01/03) + 1500CP !
After you nab the fragment, you're returned to the Gate Matrix area. A new area gets unlocked in the middle node, called AF??? Hollow Seclusion. When you return, your gameplay resumes just before a Live Trigger: (Lightning is showing me the world of hope. Should I quit my journey and stay with her? / X). This time choose X in order to advance the game. Hey, who's voice is that I hear?
Walk aaaall the way east to the Meteorite Impact Site and talk to the... hm, spoiler? When the scene concludes, look along the crater's edges to find two treasure cubes. One contains AF00X NEW BODHUM FRAGMENT - Vanille's Fruit (02/03) + 600CP ! And the other contains AF00X NEW BODHUM FRAGMENT - Fang's Crown (03/03) + 600CP !
