Look at how dingy this place is. Awful.
And the fact that he's trapped in such a tiny, tiny cube. It makes her almost feel sorry for him. Almost.
She settles on the gross, rusty chair and picks up the charmed phone and clears her throat. What should she say...? She could just immediately make fun of his predicament, but that's no fun. She'll start small.

She smiles what looks to be a sincere smile.
'Ah...that hurts, you know. Right in my cold, cold heart. I just wanted to visit. And honestly, this place is...so...' She shudders. She doesn't even bother putting it to words. For a maximum security prison...it looks like it was waaay underfunded. But she guesses looks aren't everything. They must have blown all their funding on ghost-imprisonment measures. Does this place even get funding? Who knows. This was much different from her bubble.
'Even the outside is as bad. It's almost depressing. And that tiny cube...what kind of torture have they put you through here?' A pained look slips in. Such a tiny prison...Is this what they do to all of their inmates? Or is it just specific ones? Hell, her prison in her bubble was much more...roomier. Why is she so concerned about this!? I mean he was the enemy, someone she so wanted to kill off herself, but couldn't.

His defenses slip as he begins unloading his complaints upon the young woman.
"LET ME TELL YΘU, THIS PL▲CE FUCKING SUCKS. TH▲T SHITTY BΘX YΘU JUST S▲W, TH▲T W▲S THE TIME CUBE. I THINK THEY CR▲FTED IT JUST SPECIFIC▲LLY TΘ FUCK WITH MY SENSES.

Chronos twitches and jitters slightly more.
"▲ND THE WΘRST P▲RT... THE ENDLESS FUCKING NΘNSENSIC▲L PRΘP▲G▲ND▲. IT. M▲KES. NΘ. SENSE."

Oh my god. That is...genuinely awful. Like...Wow. As much as she felt so much vitriol for this monster, she can't help but be afraid for him. The extremely horrified look on her face just cements it. Then it hit her. She does not want to end up here. If what she heard was right, she could be in as much risk of being here herself. Sure, there's a possibility that this is a punishment that may be...personalized. Like his own special hell. But there was always a possibility that every inmate here would be in their own personalized hellscape.
Complete erasure would be a better option than this.
'W....What propaganda? Why doesn't it make sense...?'

Chronos shudders. He doesn't even want to TRY to explain the time cube's propaganda. "...I DΘN'T W▲NT TΘ H▲VE TΘ REGURGIT▲TE TH▲T CUBE'S BULLSHIT."
"▲PP▲RENTLY THIS WEIRD FUCKING UNDERWΘRLD GΘVERNMENT ΘUTPΘST T▲KES ITS CRIME SERIΘUSLY. HΘW THE FUCK W▲S I SUPPΘSED TΘ KNΘW TH▲T I'D GET PRΘSECUTED FΘR BLΘWING UP ▲ DRE▲MBUBBLE WHILE I W▲S STILL ▲LIVE? IT'S LIKE THE ENDING TΘ MΘNTY PYTHΘN ▲ND THE HΘLY GR▲IL FΘR FUCK'S S▲KE.

He takes a short pause and glances to the side, away from the hypothetical (and possibly an actual) camera.
"...▲T LE▲ST IT W▲S FUN WHILE IT L▲STED."

'I guess Justice has a way of getting to even the most impossible corners of reality.' She tips her hat downwards, so it covers her face. Justice...haha. Sure, this is probably a suitable punishment...But it's not one she desired. She would prefer old-fashioned vengeance... But alas, this is the now.
'I heard that you've been trying to break out multiple times as well. It seems that they do their best to keep inmates imprisoned.'

He shrugs, almost in a boastful manner. "YE▲H, I TRIED TΘ BUST ΘUT ▲ H▲NDFUL ΘF TIMES. I GΘTT▲ ▲DMIT THEY H▲VE THIS PL▲CE LΘCKED UP PRETTY FUCKING WELL. I CΘNSIDER IT ▲ FUN CH▲LLENGE. THEY ΘNLY WHIPPED ΘUT THE CUBE ▲FTER MY 4TH ESC▲PE ▲TTEMPT, BUT I'M NΘT LETTING IT DETER ME... MUCH." There is a noticeable eye-twitch by the time he mentions the cube. Did that device really come that close to breaking him? Is that form of solitary confinement even legal here? How far can they even deprive their prisoners here?
Chronos decides to change the subject slightly.
"YΘU KNΘW, ▲LL THE FUCKING HΘRRΘR MΘVIE GHΘSTS GET LΘCKED UP HERE. I THINK I S▲W TH▲T LΘNG-H▲IRED L▲DY FRΘM THE RING ▲T ΘNE PΘINT. IT'S ▲ LITTLE WEIRD ▲LMΘST FITTING INTΘ THE CRΘWD FΘR ΘNCE.

Chronos grins back, however someone with his type of mouth can even smile. "I'LL BE LΘΘKING FΘRW▲RDS TΘ THE D▲Y TΘΘ. JUST YΘU W▲IT ▲ND SEE. NΘ FΘUR W▲LLS NΘR FΘUR TIME ZΘNES C▲N CΘNT▲IN ME! I ▲M CHRΘNΘS! THIS PRISΘN SH▲LL CΘWER IN RUBBLE BEFΘRE MY PΘWER! BW▲H▲H▲H▲H▲!"
In the midst of his rousing speech, he stretches and towers upwards by at least a foot, thinning slightly in compensation. Surprisingly he doesn't quite reach the ceiling. For the shortest moment, he seems back to his old boastful self, ready to take on the world. You could even say he's... filed with determination.
"...one minute warning, wrap it up."
...and then he shrinks back down to a reasonable height.

"I PRΘMISE, ▲ND I PL▲N ΘN KEEPING THIS ΘNE." He nods with steadfast confidence.
It's unknown why Chronos doesn't seem to be showing very much animosity against this woman, despite what she or another similar had done to him in the past. Luring her into a false sense of security perhaps? Or has he become so desperately in need of attention that he'd even seek it from her of all people? Either way, when he gets out, she will not be exempt from his vengeance, probably.
"Alright, time to go........... slime man." The buster on his side of the glass hooks up the time cube to his vacuum pack and pulls out the suction device. Chronos stumbles and stutters backwards, away from the buster and his device. There is no escape.
"...I THOUGHT YΘU S▲ID I SPENT ENΘUGH TIME IN THE CUBE! CΘME ΘN!"
"Well, I changed my mind. In you go."
The buster turns on the vacuum pack and an incredible gust of wind pulls Chronos closer, picking up increasingly larger globs of stray tar as he struggles to resist. "NΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘΘ!"
He is no match for the vacuum and is sucked inside, and deposited back into the time cube.
No sound can escape the time cube, so the room is suddenly incredibly quiet, despite how much he seems to be trying to bash his way out of the cube. His efforts are ineffective and the buster walks back into the door out of the visitor's room, taking the cubed prisoner with him.
An gentleman arrives by way of materialization (twilightprincessportal.obj). His lab coat and pale blue scarf flutters behind him as he walks down the road. He seems to know where he is heading. The man travels down the road and up to the runes littered gates of the Prison.
