I get "decision" from the graphic.

EDIT...And found this website, with a translation... For the Japanese in quotes...

That text often means OK in the OK/Cancel buttons.

You're thinking 会った, which is the past-tense of the verb 会う, meaning "to meet."
Here, this is the verb 有る (在る、ある) meaning "to be" or "to exist," and is applicable only to non-living objects.

Without any context, the more correct translation would be something like "There it is!" "Found it!" or something like that, generally used when someone is looking for something and finally found it.

@dougeff, hanhnn: i get the idea, i need to see where it's used and how it's on the rest of the series. I actually never found that in the game but i have an idea where to look now :)

@Seihen: There is no context, it's just a stand alone sentence anyway you are right with the Found it, there it is. It appears when you click on the right place on the screen :)

Thanks
