Time to Surf
To get ready for a surfing competition in Auguste, Cailana hits the waves. She is later joined by Tanya and Chloe whom she teaches how to swim. After having fun with her two friends, Cailana feels relaxed and ready to face the challenges that the competition will present.
The crew first met the surfer Cailana on a mission.
She's a girl with a great love of the sea, surfing, and her hometown. She also has a huge dream.
That dream is to ride a wave in Auguste created by none other than the primal beast Leviathan.
Cailana: Today I'm going to ride this wave to the end. Come on, big guy!
The waves produced by the primal beast are unlike any other.
Every surfer worth their grit wants to dominate one, but so far none have managed to do so.
Many say the timing of these waves cannot be predicted...
But Cailana can sense minute changes in the wind and waves, and she's been right about the appearance of the legendary waves time and time again.
Though having the ability to predict when the waves will come is a useful skill, it still hasn't helped her ride with mastery yet.
Cailana: I've been thinking about it since yesterday. I may not win the competition, but I can still tag along with you, (Captain).
Cailana: If I want to get better, I have to see other oceans and experience other waves for myself!
And so Cailana left Auguste to set sail with the crew and grow as a surfer.
Cailana: The waves are receding...
Cailana: Ooh! This might be my chance.
It's early in the morning on Venera Beach, and Cailana is getting herself in position to catch some waves.
The waves are quite strong, reaching heights about as tall as she is.
She catches a wave and listens to the sound of her board as it slices through the water.
While vacationing in Auguste, Cailana finds herself on its familiar waters surfing away her time.
After riding several waves, Cailana heads back to shore.
The wind's direction has changed causing the waves to die down.
Cailana: Wanted to ride at least two more times... That might've been it for today though, huh...
Cailana quietly whispers this to herself as she takes her board and heads back into the water.
Tanya: Hm? Is that...
The crew is enjoying breakfast at the table in the mess hall.
Cailana: Guess who's ready to munch!
Chloe: Mornin'! Look at you, Caily!
Vyrn: Hey, Surfer Girl! Were you out hitting the waves again?
Cailana: Morning! Yup, sure was. The competition is coming up soon, so you know...
Cailana: I've gotta win if I want to be the best surfer in all the skies!
Chloe: Here's your breakfast, Caily! On the menu today is my special scallop risotto.
Cailana: Thanks! So today was your turn to cook?
Chloe: Umm, no. It was totally Loweeny's turn. I'm just, like, doing the waitressing.
Cailana: Oh, okay. Wow, this smells great!
Cailana: Ooh! Looks good too!
Vyrn: Haha! Surfer Girl, you really put your all into practicing every day, huh?
Cailana: You think? I dunno. I just need to be in the water to relax.
Cailana: I guess you could say it's, like, my way of de-stressing more than practicing.
Vyrn: De-stressing? Whatcha mean?
Cailana: I... I just, you know... worry sometimes.
Chloe: But, like, seriously! The amount of time you spend in the water is gonna net you the crown! There's just, like, no doubt about it.
Cailana: Ahaha. Thanks, Chloe.
Cailana: Hm? Oh, hey, Tanya! Morning!
Tanya: I... Uh... Morning... Is it time for breakfast already?
Cailana: Yeah! I was out practicing earlier, so now I could eat a whole cow!
Cailana: Thanks for the grub and all that!
Saying this, Cailana shovels the first morsel into her mouth.
Cailana: This risotto is insane! It's so good! Just what the doctor ordered.
Tanya sits next to Cailana and looks as if she has something to say, but she can't quite muster the courage to speak up.
Chloe: Hey, Tanya. Do you wanna dig in too? Or did you already munch on something?
Tanya: Hm? I... I'm okay. I did have something earlier...
Chloe: Gotcha, girl! So... Wait... Are you here to talk to Caily then?
Tanya: I... Actually... yes, I am.
Cailana: Oh really? What's up?
Tanya: It's nothing... really... but...
Tanya: I... was watching you earlier... as I was running on the beach...
Cailana: Really? I didn't notice at all.
Tanya: I didn't think you would... You were in your own world...
Cailana: Oh my Astrals! I can't believe I was being watched and didn't even realize it! How embarrassing!
Tanya: I wouldn't say that... You were really cool.
Chloe: You said it! (*´ω｀)σ
When she's on fire, there's, like, no better surfer than her.
Tanya: I agree... I could never do what you do... You have my deepest respect.
Cailana: Ahaha! Stop it. You're making me blush.
Cailana: But I bet you could surf too if you tried. How about we go for a spin now?
Tanya: What? But I... I've never done it before...
Cailana: Haha. Don't worry. I can teach you the ropes.
Cailana: How about you, Chloe? Want to join us? It feels really good.
Chloe: For reals? I'm totally in! You spin my head right round, girl!
Cailana: Ahah! It's settled!
Cailana: My tummy is full, and I'm ready to hit the waves!
And so Cailana decides to run her own surfer's camp on Venera Beach.
For now, the boards are on the beach while the team learns the basics in the water.
Cailana: So then the waves will come in like this.
Chloe: Right. Right.
Cailana: You have to match the waves and their speed to get a proper lift, and then you need to paddle for your life.
Cailana: Like this!
Cailana: Then once you've got a feeling for the timing, you just stand up!
Tanya: Sorry... Paddle for my life?
Cailana: When you stand, you need to focus all your energy in your stomach and make sure your whole body is in sync!
Cailana: That's all there is to standing on your board. Got it?
Chloe: Maybe I do! Let me at those waves!
Tanya: What? That's amazing, Chloe. I can't make heads or tails of this...
Chloe: Don't overthink it, girl! I'm just, like, going with the flow! Mind over matter, baby!
Tanya: Oh... So... I start paddling on my board and once I feel the speed is right, I stand...
Cailana: Right! That's all there is to it.
Cailana: You'll probably get a better feeling for what I'm talking about once you start trying it yourself.
Cailana: Okay... The waves aren't surging right now, so I think it's the perfect time to practice.
Cailana: Let's get this thing started!
Tanya: All right... H-here goes...
Cailana: Okay, you two. Get on your boards and stay put.
Cailana: When the waves come, I'll give the signal. Then you try paddling.
Cailana: Okay, Tanya! You first!
Tanya: Roger that!
Cailana: Here it comes!
Tanya plants herself on the board and puts all her energy into paddling towards the shore.
Cailana: Now! Stand up!
Tanya follows Cailana's instructions and tries to stand.
The wave's force overwhelms Tanya causing her to lose balance and fall into the water.
Cailana: That was close! Are you okay, Tanya?
Tanya: Huff, huff... This... is amazing.
Tanya: Huff, huff... The waves were much stronger than I had expected. I couldn't stand at all.
Cailana: But that was really good for starters! Baby steps!
Tanya: I see... I think I can do better next time.
Cailana: Yeah! That attitude's the fastest way to success!
Cailana: Okay. Up next is Chloe!
This is gonna be off the charts!
Cailana: Here it comes! Chloe, start paddling!
Chloe: This is totes a piece of cake.
Cailana gives Chloe the signal to start, and she heads in the direction of the shore. But the wave is slower than it looks...
Cailana: Oh, crap! She might be going too fast!
Chloe speeds right past the wave and face-plants into the water.
Cailana: Aaahhh! Chloe, are you okay?
Chloe: Pant, pant, pant... That was freakin' scary!
Chloe: I literally just, like, died... What the heck was that! Heads will roll!
Cailana: Sooorry! I gave the signal too soon!
Chloe: I know I, like, totally just died and all, but that was, wow, pretty amazing! Ahahaha!
Even though Chloe's first try didn't go as planned, she managed to make it through unscathed and seems quite happy about the experience.
Tanya: Huh? Chloe... Your top...
Chloe had been holding onto to the board until now and hadn't realized her top is nowhere to be found.
Chloe: OOOMMMMGGGG! Why, world, why! My top ran away!
Cailana: Ahahaha! That's what happens when you surf with a bikini!
Tanya: Is this something people usually laugh at?
Chloe: Hold up! Does that mean my falsies fell off too?
Chloe sinks the top half of her body well into the water and begins checking her eyelashes.
Chloe: Okay! Everything's fine! Totes false alarm!
Cailana: Hehe! Is that your only concern?
Chloe: I'd rather die than be caught dead without makeup! No way!
Tanya: What? This logic fails me...
Chloe: This is totes liberating to be surrounded by the ocean while I'm missing my top. I'm kinda lovin' it. lolz
Cailana: Ahaha. Only you would say that! You're a funny one, Chloe.
Tanya: Uh... She certainly has nerves of steel... Let's just look for the rest of her swimsuit.
Cailana: I think it probably came off over here... I got it!
Tanya: That's a relief...
Cailana: Ahaha! Put this back on, Chloe. Chop, chop!
Chloe: Why are you laughing so much? And who says chop, chop anymore? lol
Chloe: Why don't you take a page out of Tanya's book and be a little more caring.
Chloe takes the bikini top from Cailana and puts it back on.
Just as everything is back to normal, another wave comes their way.
Cailana: Ooh! This one looks good! Whaddya say, Tanya? Wanna try?
Tanya: What? Now?
Cailana: Waves don't wait!
Tanya: Gulp... Okay!
After a number of unexpected events, Cailana's private surf class finally comes to an end at sundown.
Sitting on the beach, Cailana and Tanya watch as the sun sets.
Meanwhile Chloe has already returned to the Grandcypher to continue her waitressing duties.
Tanya: Thank you. Even though your competition is just around the corner, you made time just for us...
Cailana: No worries. I had a lot of fun. This was a good change of pace for me as well!
Tanya: When I saw you this morning trying so hard to achieve a goal and to follow a dream, I felt my green-eyed monster rear its ugly head...
Tanya: I was jealous...
Tanya: I want something that puts me in my own world. Just like you...
Tanya: I'm glad I got to experience the sport that gives you purpose and helps you lose yourself.
Tanya: I... Thank you for today. I'm happy you invited me.
Tanya: I hope that didn't come out wrong...
Cailana: No, not at all! I'm glad you told me all that.
Cailana: I never woulda guessed that was how you felt. I'm kinda embarrassed.
Cailana: Since the competition is so close, that's all I've been able to think about. I've been so preoccupied...
Cailana: But today I left all my worries on the shore and had a blast with you.
Cailana: I really feel a lot better.
Tanya: Hehehe. I'm glad...
Tanya: We're all going to cheer you on and watch your amazing surfing skills.
Cailana: Ahah. You think I'm amazing?
Cailana: I guess I can't let you down then. I've gotta give it my all!
Surfing has allowed Cailana to develop deeper bonds with others and a new sense of calm.
Now the stage is set for Cailana to deliver her best performance yet.
This Is Madness
The Venera Pipeline Challenge in Auguste begins. Cailana soars through the preliminary round with a flawless show of talent. While the crew watches her supportively, another eyes her with malice.
Host: This is it, folks! The moment you've all been waiting for! This is the Venera Pipeline Challenge!
Host: One mistake could cost a contestant their lives. If they don't time every action perfectly, it's lights out!
Host: Who will tame the wild horses of the sea today?
Commentator: This competition will be using the two-wave system which has been approved by the skydom's surfing federation.
Commentator: Moves which use magic will also be allowed.
Commentator: So we will definitely be witness to new ways of riding the wave.
Vyrn: Hey! Surfer Girl is up pretty soon, right?
Joel: Correct. She should be the first contestant up for the preliminaries...
Chloe: Look! That's totes her! Over there in the water!
The crew looks in the direction Chloe points and sees someone getting into the water with their board.
Tanya: I think that's her...
Cailana: Here goes...
Host: Feast your eyes on Cailana, a native of Auguste.
Commentator: Cailana has previously won three surfing competitions and looks to be the one to beat.
Host: And the fact that she's going first puts a lot of pressure on her shoulders. If she makes any mistakes, the top spot may just go to someone else.
Commentator: That's right. It's been a while since she's taken part in a tournament of this scale, so let's hope she's improved her technique.
Host: And she's off!
Host: As the wave breaks, she heads into a bottom turn.
Commentator: It looks likes the other contenders have taken notice of her.
Host: Hm. That was very clean ride. She'll definitely get points for stability.
Vyrn: Phew... Was that it for the prelims? Did she win?
Joel: That's right. She scored more than her opponents.
Joel: She's definitely qualified to go on to the next round.
Chloe: Yay! Go, Caily!
Tanya: Just like that!
Vyrn: Haha. The host did say that she's the one to beat. At this rate, she can't lose!
Joel: As long as she keeps this up, at least. But one mistake and it's over. Don't get ahead of yourself, Vyrn.
???: Well... Look at that...
???: She thinks she's already won... We'll see about that...
This Is Madness: Scene 2
Cailana makes it into the semi-finals without a hitch. However, an opponent uses magic to send her board into the water—and her with it. Despite almost losing her life, Cailana forgives her opponent and becomes even more determined to win in the finals.
Cailana continues her winning streak right into the semifinals.
She decides to scope out the competition while she waits for her next heat.
Fisherman: If Cailana wins the next one, she'll be sent to the finals.
Vyrn: What? Oh, hey! It's the fisherman who likes to tell corny jokes! I remember you.
Cailana's Friend: Hi. We came to cheer Cailana on!
Cailana's friend and her father, both fishers by occupation, join in the cheering fun.
Both have known Cailana from a young age.
Chloe: Why, hey there! Come sit down so we can root for our girl, Caily!
Cailana's Friend: Hehe. Nice to meet you!
Tanya: Hm? Everyone, the next match is starting.
Host: Things are really starting to heat up! Mahina seems poised to take a spot in the finals!
Commentator: You know, I really think Mahina's raw talent just puts her above so many other contenders.
Commentator: She makes use of everything she has at her disposal. Take her magic for example. That's not something all the others can do.
Commentator: Although that wasn't the biggest wave, she will be getting points for aesthetics.
Host: She's done it. Mahina is moving on to the finals.
Vyrn: Wow. She just breezed through that.
Joel: Mahina made it look easy. I promise you, it wasn't.
Tanya: I only just recently tried surfing for myself... and it's much more difficult than it seems.
Host: One spot for the finals has been filled. Whoever wins in the next match will be up against Mahina.
Commentator: On the one hand, we have Rino who racks up tons of points using magic.
Commentator: On the other hand, we have Cailana whose technical skills are unparalleled. This is going to be a close one.
Host: Time to start!
Cailana and Rino fly into the water upon hearing the starting signal.
Cailana takes the lead and rides the first wave.
Host: Cailana is off!
Host: But wait! Was her timing wrong? It looks like she's trying to regain balance.
Host: That was a grave mistake! The waves are now in control of her! She's gonna have to fight hard to regain her position.
Host: While it looks like Rino is riding the wave flawlessly!
Rino: Hehe... Let me show you beauty!
Host: There it is! Her magical edge! She's painting the air with water flowers!
Commentator: She really knows how to capture everyone's hearts. She'll be getting a lot of points for that.
Rino: Hehe... And here's a gift for you, Cailana...
Host: Hm? Is Rino using a new magic technique? Wait, maybe I jumped the gun.
Host: Oh, that is unfortunate! She wiped out at the last second after losing balance! There aren't any points awarded for that.
Host: All right. Now Cailana is up for her second try.
Cailana: Just breathe...
Cailana sets her eyes on a strong wave. She begins paddling with all the strength in her body.
Cailana: This is it!
Host: She's off! That's what I call a great wave!
Commentator: She's really in the pipeline. This is surfing at its finest.
Host: The pipeline is closing in on her, but if she keeps her speed up, she should be able to get out alive.
Cailana: Phew! I made it!
Without missing a beat, Cailana leaves the pipeline unscathed.
But something else is waiting for her.
Cailana: What the...
Cailana's board flips, and she's taken by the waves.
The collision causes her to disappear beneath the water's surface.
The audience is stunned into silence as they look on with fear and uncertainty.
Joel: Did... she just...
Cailana's Friend: No! Cailana!
Host: Wipeout! Cailana is down under, and now all we can ask ourselves is: "Will she emerge?" The rescue team needs to move quickly.
Chloe: What the actual duck! This is totes bad! Is Caily okay?
Once the waves settle, she should float to the top...
Vyrn: When's that gonna happen? Just look at the water... And over there the bubbles are popping up like crazy.
Joel: Could that be...
Host: There's still no sign of Cailana.
Host: With wave after vicious wave, it seems she's having trouble getting to the surface.
The crowd and the crew hold their breath.
This is not looking good. I'm going to help her.
Cailana's Friend: Me too, Joel!
Fisherman: Wait. If you enter the water now, she'll be disqualified.
Fisherman: They've already sent in a team to see if she needs help. Just wait a little longer. Trust Cailana.
Fisherman: This means so much to her. She's worked so hard for all of this.
Joel: I understand that... But her life is not worth a title.
Joel: I'm worried that the rescue team hasn't found her yet...
Cailana's Friend: He's right, Dad! No matter how good Cailana is at swimming, this is too dange—
Vyrn: Hey! Look! Over there!
Finally Cailana's orange hair emerges from the crashing waves.
Host: There she is, everyone! The rescue team is on their way to her now.
With all of her strength stolen by the sea, Cailana is unable to get on her board by herself. The rescue team grabs her and takes her to shore.
Cailana collapses on the beach, breathing violently.
Chloe: Aah! Caily!
Cailana's Friend: Cailana, are you okay?
Cailana: Huff, huff, huff...
Host: Although the timing is rather terrible, Cailana's score is in.
Host: She has beaten Rino and is now qualified for the finals.
Host: But one must wonder if she is in any state to compete after what she just experienced. Let's wait and see.
Cailana is put on a stretcher and taken to a tent to be seen by medical professionals.
Doctor: Can you tell me your name?
Cailana: Wheeze... Cai... lana...
Doctor: How many fingers am I holding up?
Cailana: Pant... I... I'm... okay!
Cailana: I... didn't... inhale... any water... Wheeze... I can keep... going...
Doctor: You seem to be completely conscious. I think you should be fine. As a safety precaution, we're going to keep you here until the next match.
After the doctor finishes looking at Cailana, she rests on a makeshift bed inside the tent.
Cailana calms herself and reflects on what went wrong during her ride.
Rino: Are... you okay?
Cailana: Yeah. There weren't any rocks or anything where I fell.
Cailana: I did think I was going to die for lack of air though.
Rino: I'm sorry!
Cailana: That was current magic... I knew it was you.
Rino: I'm so sorry. I didn't think that would happen to you...
Cailana: All right.
Rino: Huh? A-all right?
Cailana: You regret what you did, right? That's how it looks to me.
Cailana: Then that's enough for me.
Cailana: I accept your apology.
Cailana: But I'm sorry to say, I don't have any more time for this conversation.
Cailana: I have to focus on the finals. That's why I'm here after all.
Cailana: As a surfer you should understand exactly what I mean.
Rino: I... I'm really sorry.
Rino whispers her apology one last time and then leaves the tent.
Vyrn: Hey, Surfer Girl! You okay?
Cailana: Hm? Vyrn. Everybody...
Chloe: Sob... Caily! I'm so glad you're safe!
Tanya: How was it? How do you feel now?
Cailana: Sorry, everyone. I didn't mean to frighten you. It's been so long since a wave hit me like that.
Cailana: But I feel truly alive to see all of your friendly faces.
Vyrn: Only you could say something like that after what just happened.
Cailana's Friend: Cailana... Something was wrong with your second ride, wasn't there?
Cailana's Friend: Do... you know what happened? There's no way your board could have just turned on you like that.
Cailana: I was careless. I need to get my head in the game. Sorry for causing such a fuss.
Cailana: The next match won't be like that, I promise!
Joel: Is that a joke? Or are you serious?
Cailana: Dead serious!
Cailana: I'm going to show you all what I can do when I've got a clear head! You just watch me win this!
Chloe: We've got your back! Go get 'em, tiger!
Cailana: (This championship is mine!)
Cailana's will to win burns brighter than ever.
To show everyone that she's the best surfer in the skies, she'll put everything on the line.
This Is Madness: Scene 3
In the final round, while the opponent chooses her wave without hesitation, Cailana appears stunned. Little does her fellow competitor know that Cailana is actually waiting to ride the biggest wave anyone has ever seen. After the competition, she resolves to conquer a wave created by Leviathan before becoming a professional surfer.
Host: The waves are getting stronger! Venera's ferocious waters are reaching their peak intensity!
Host: The stage is set for the ultimate surfer showdown!
Host: I didn't think Cailana would make it after that wipeout, but here she is in the finals.
Host: Will the fear of almost dying moments earlier hold her back?
Commentator: She's up against the behemoth, Mahina. A surfer who conquers any wave that comes her way.
Commentator: Her talent is the ability to maintain stability throughout. She gives the impression that she's someone you can really rely on.
Host: Cailana and Mahina enter the water in sync!
Cailana: Huff... Huff!
Host: This is the battle for the waves. And emerging in the lead is Mahina.
Host: What powerful paddling! The waves are coming in strong and fast, but she's riding them hard!
Host: Mahina is off!
Mahina: Here goes...
Host: She is up at full speed. Full speed, people! Full speed!
Host: That position isn't bad either! I expect big points coming her way.
Host: That was a flawless ending for Mahina. Now she's going back to the designated area to wait for another wave.
Host: Next up is Cailana. She's getting ready for the next wave.
Host: This wave is coming quick! Can she catch it?
Cailana: (Not you...)
Commentator: She let it go. If the timing is wrong, it could spell another wipeout for her.
Host: Maybe that's what's stopping her. Maybe she's lost her nerve.
Mahina: So are you going to just sit there all day? Good waves like that don't come around often.
Cailana: If I have to. I'm waiting for a great wave.
Host: Cailana isn't moving. Could this be it for her?
Host: Or has she given up after seeing Mahina's brilliant display?
Host: Wait a sec, folks. We've just received new information.
Host: It appears that Rino is guilty of using magic to affect Cailana's performance in the semifinals!
Vyrn: What the!
Chloe: They for realzy?
Host: Apparently the magic techniques she used to wow us were also forms of current magic set to tamper with Cailana's board.
Host: Rino has come forward, and because tampering is against the rules, she is automatically disqualified.
Host: And not only from this competition, but from all competitions moving forward.
Mahina: Hurry up and show me what you're made of.
Mahina: How am I supposed to prove I'm the best if you won't ride a wave.
Mahina: This is going to be the competition where I show everyone how much better I am than you!
Host: Mahina takes off for her second ride. Those are strong paddling skills!
Host: Hold on! She rushed that one and has lost her balance.
Cailana: (One, two, three... In fifteen seconds...)
Host: Now Cailana is on the move!
Host: Those are moves without distraction! That wave is...
Host: Gigantic! What is this monstrosity!
Host: Is that a triple overhead? No, it's taller than that! That has to be the biggest wave I've ever seen! Such speed! It's just too fast!
Host: Can Cailana command this wave? If she doesn't, this could be the end of the line for her!
Behind Cailana is a gargantuan wave—the biggest the day has seen.
Cailana listens to every fiber in her body and takes off.
The force of the water underneath Cailana's feet is gaining dangerous traction.
Cailana: (This is it! This is it!)
Cailana claims the wave for herself and heads deep into its pipeline threatening her very existence.
Cailana: I... can't lose!
Cailana nears the shoulder of the wave and chooses the correct direction to continue in.
Cailana moves into the perfect pipeline at top speed.
Host: What in Phantagrande! This is amazing! I'm witnessing a miracle before my very eyes!
Host: We all have just seen the impossible made possible!
Host: That vicious wave is coming for Cailana, and it's not taking names!
Host: Just look at her! She's moving hand-in-hand with it.
Host: This is unbelievable! She knows no fear! This is madness, I tell you!
Host: She is truly a daughter of the ocean!
Mahina: Tch... Well, she won...
Cailana: I did it!
Host: Madness, I tell you! Maaaadness!
Thus the vacation in Auguste comes to an end, and the Grandcypher is off to new lands somewhere in the vast blue sky.
Cailana: Whew... That was fun!
As Cailana stares at Venera Beach in the distance, she is firmly aware that she will always remember this sweet summer.
Vyrn: Surfer Girl! Whatcha doing?
Cailana: Hey, Vyrn! Just thinking about how awesome this summer was!
Vyrn: Haha. Well, you did win the surfing competition after all.
Vyrn: But was it really okay to do that?
Cailana: Do what?
Vyrn: To say no to all those pro surfing teams who were trying to recruit you after your big victory.
Cailana: Oh, that?
Vyrn: I mean, I thought your dream was to be a pro surfer?
Cailana: It is! That's exactly what I'm aiming for!
Cailana: But if I do become a pro, then I can't be with all of you. I couldn't live with that.
Cailana: Don't you know? The only reason I took the championship was because of the crew!
Cailana: The first time I was truly afraid of the water, Ghanda was the one who saved me...
Cailana: And the time I spent with Tanya and Chloe surfing away made for some great memories...
Cailana: I owe all that to (Captain) and this crew.
Cailana: What I mean is, I want to travel the skies with you and (Captain)!
Cailana: And I've made up my mind about something.
Vyrn: What's that?
Cailana: Before I become a pro, I'm going to ride one of Leviathan's waves without eating it!
Cailana: Until then I'm not ready to become a pro!
Vyrn: I see! So you've still got your heart set on that, huh!
Cailana: No one has ever successfully ridden a wave that Leviathan created!
Cailana: That's why I want to add that to my list of accomplishments!
Cailana: Ahah! You just wait, Leviathan!
While Cailana is in high spirits, Vyrn takes this opening to ask a question.
Vyrn: So... I've got something I wanna ask ya.
Vyrn: When you had your accident, you knew who was behind it, didn't you? Why didn't you say anything?
Vyrn: Sigh... It coulda been way worse, ya know?
Cailana: Oh... that...
Cailana: I mean... all's well that ends well.
Vyrn: You're taking this pretty lightly. We wanted to see some justice for you...
Cailana: Thank you, Vyrn. I'm sorry for what I put you through.
Cailana: I don't mean to stand up for Rino or anything. It's just that, there was an upside to what happened.
Vyrn: Whaddya mean?
Cailana: I mean... I learned how to escape water as crazy as that, so that's something!
Cailana: And now I've got the confidence to tackle any wave that comes my way!
Cailana: Ahaha! I turned that misfortunate event into a learning opportunity.
Vyrn: Seriously! Things coulda been way worse, and you're over here being all positive about it...
Cailana: And maybe I can use current magic to perform some new moves!
Cailana: Oh wait, I don't know how to use magic... I'll have to start there first.
Vyrn: Whatever you say... You're too much for me...
Cailana: Hey! Don't say that! I need you by my side, Vyrn! And (Captain) too!
Vyrn: Geez... You're out there, Surfer Girl.
Cailana: Ahaha! (Captain), looks like we're stuck together!
Cailana's optimism turns more than a few heads in the crew—with some nodding in approval and others gazing in confusion.
This adventure has brought Cailana that much closer to being the number one surfer in all the skies.
The day when she masters one of Leviathan's almighty waves is sure to come soon.
