Gun Girl Getaway
Camieux and the crew go to Venera Beach for vacation. Camieux volunteers to help Kaz sell his shish kebabs and succeeds in selling every last one.
While on one of their missions, (Captain) and company meet Camieux, a young girl in training to be a powdersmith.
Camieux: Ooo, I just get surprised so easily...
Camieux asks to join (Captain)'s crew in hopes of overcoming her timidness.
Camieux: Gosh darn it! I'm just so pathetic, but I wanna change!
Camieux: So please, (Captain). Let me join your crew!
Hearing Camieux's plea and seeing her desire, (Captain) gladly invites her to join the crew.
Camieux, the youngest daughter of a gunsmith, continues to serve the crew as a powdersmith. Today, however, she and the crew are on vacation in Auguste.
They step off their ship and are greeted by beautiful shores. They follow them toward the beach house.
Lyria: Hehe, the weather sure is nice today! It's a great day to lay by the beach!
Camieux: Yeah! And that sea breeze feels wonderful!
Vyrn: Huh? I thought you'd be more surprised to see all this, Camieux. You hardly seem fazed.
Camieux: Well, I've been trying to be a little calmer ever since I joined the crew.
Camieux: But... Umm... I guess it also helps that I came here when I was little.
Vyrn: Oh! Well that makes sense then!
Camieux: We all came here together! Mommy, Daddy, Silva, Cassie, and me. And we had tons of fun!
Camieux: Heehee. Back then, the sea looked so big. I was scared and I cried all day.
Camieux: So my big sis Cassie held my hand.
Camieux: But as the years grew on, our shop got more and more work. We couldn't go out and play like we used to.
Camieux: Thinking about it now, I'm sure Cassie wanted to go swimming that day. I feel bad that she had to take care of me.
Lyria: Aww, Cassie sure is a great sister.
Camieux: Yeah! I love her. She's my favorite sister in the whole wide sky!
Camieux: Oh wait, but I also love Silva. So, maybe not the whole sky?
Camieux becomes lost in thought, but (Captain) and company pull her along as they stroll by the shore.
Camieux: Hey, that reminds me. On our last adventure, we met that powdersmith who loved pyrotechnics.
Camieux: He said that he'd give anything to become a pyrotechnician. So he gave up his old job and started following one of the masters around.
Camieux: He taught me all kinds of stuff about gunpowder. I wonder how he's been...
Vyrn: Hmm... Well, he'd have to be pretty tough to do that kind of work. I'm sure he's doing fine!
Lyria: Maybe we'll have a chance to see him while we're here!
The crew walks and talks along the shore. Before long, the outline of the beach house comes into view.
Kaz: Ah crud. What am I gonna do?
Lyria: Huh? Hey, is that Kaz coming out to greet us?
As the crew gets closer, they wave to Kaz, who then greets them with a friendly smile.
Kaz: Oh ho! Welcome, my friends! It's hot out here. Come! It's cool inside!
Vyrn: Hehe. Thanks, Kaz!
Camieux: Umm, Mr. Kaz, is something wrong?
Kaz: Ah, nah. It's nothin'.
Vyrn: Hey come on, Kaz! Don't be like that. If something's wrong, you can tell us!
Kaz sees now that he can't hide his problem. He begins to explain the situation.
Camieux: So, you were going to sell some shish kebabs down by the beach, but your assistant got sick?
Kaz: Yeah, it's one of those summer colds too. I didn't want to push it, so I let him take the day off.
Camieux: Oh, I see. And your fish are going to go bad if you don't sell them, right? How terrible...
Camieux stands there for a moment and thinks of a solution. With a sudden look of determination on her face, she raises her hand.
Camieux: Um, well... If you wouldn't mind, I could help you sell those shish kebabs!
Kaz: Hey, that'd be great! What a nice girl you are. But aren't you all here on vacation?
Camieux: It's okay. I want to help. I'm just so jittery all the time, and I want to get better.
Camieux: If I talk to some new people while I'm helping you, maybe I can get over being so nervous.
Camieux: My mom and dad always used to get on me about my business manners. This'll be my chance to show everyone what I can do!
Camieux is determined to help, but Kaz still shows some concern.
Vyrn: Hey (Captain). If Camieux wants to help, then let's help, too!
Lyria: Yeah, we should! He's letting us stay here, after all!
Camieux: Maybe he doesn't want our help...
Kaz looks at the crew. He sighs and then lets out a hearty chuckle.
Kaz: You kids are just so nice. I'd feel bad if I accepted!
Kaz: Well then, if you wouldn't mind, I could really use the help.
Camieux: You got it! Leave it to us!
And with that, (Captain) and company head down to the beach to launch their shish kebab venture.
Vyrn: Wow! There are lots of people walking through here! This is a great spot!
Lyria: Okay then, let's set up shop here! What do you think, Camieux?
Camieux: Yeah! Let's really sell 'em!
Camieux: Uh... Umm... Would you like some... shish kebabs?
Vyrn: Camieux, come on! I'm standing right next to you, and I can barely hear you!
Camieux: Oh dear... You're right. I'll try to talk a little louder.
Mother with Child: Well hello there! And what are you selling?
Camieux: Gaah! Ooo, oooh.
Seeing Camieux feeling spooked, (Captain) steps in to make the sale.
Mother with Child: Shish kebabs? Is that right? Well, my son just told me that he's hungry. Can I get two for him?
Camieux: T-two... Two!
Lyria: Thank you! And here you go!
Mother with Child: Hehe, thank you! You guys are doing great. Keep up the good work!
Camieux: Oh! Uh... C-come back anytime!
Aah, gosh darn it!
Camieux: Sigh. I'm so sorry about that.
Lyria: Don't worry about it! We're here for you. If you need help again, just ask!
Choose: Yeah, don't you worry!
- Yeah, don't you worry!
- Relax, I'll take care of this!
Camieux: Sniff... That makes me so happy...
Camieux: But I gotta do this for myself! I'm gonna work really hard!Choose: Relax, I'll take care of this!
Camieux: Wha—? Wow, I should have figured! Unlike me, we can actually count on you...
Camieux: Hey wait, don't let me off the hook that easy! Let me show you what I can do!Continue 1
Camieux: Hehehe! Hey everyone, tasty shish kebabs! Get your tasty shish kebabs!
Camieux: Grilled to perfection by a pro! These are the best shish kebabs around! Come and try one!
Vyrn: Hahah! Camieux is pretty good at this. Don't let her upstage you, (Captain)!
Hearing Camieux's energetic voice, people start to come over to see what the excitement is all about.
Camieux: Thanks for stopping by! Come back anytime!
Lyria: Huh? Hey Camieux, that was our last one!
Camieux: What! I mean... We did it? We did it!
Vyrn: All right! Nice job, Camieux!
Camieux: Thanks! But I really owe it all to you and the crew, (Captain).
Camieux: I'm just glad I could help out.
Camieux: But I have to stop getting so scared.
Vyrn: Haha! We'll work on that next.
Camieux: Yeah! I'll try my best to improve!
By working with her friends to help others, Camieux begins to build confidence.
Today marks a successful step in her journey toward overcoming her fear. Tomorrow, her journey continues.
Fire Flowers in the Sky
One of Camieux's old friends, a powdersmith, drops by while she is selling shish kebabs and reveals that he is doing pyrotechnics now. After he goes back to work, a ruffian comes by and stirs up trouble.
During the crew's last adventure, Camieux helped out Kaz by selling shish kebabs at his stand.
Since then, Camieux has helped out at the stand several more times in order to continue building her courage.
Camieux: Shish kebabs! Tasty shish kebabs! Get 'em while they're hot!
Pyrotechnician: Hey there, little lady. Can I get five of those shish kebabs?
Camieux: You got it! Five shish kebabs, coming right up... Hey, wait a sec!
Camieux: I know you! You're that powdersmith! Do you remember me? I'm Camieux, from the gunsmith!
Pyrotechnician: What? Camieux, is that really you? You've grown up so much!
Camieux: I can see you haven't changed a bit! How have you been?
Lyria: Hey Camieux, do you know him? Oh, is he that powdersmith you told us about?
Camieux: Yeah! He's the one that got me interested in gunpowder. And now he's studying under a master!
Pyrotechnician: So, Camieux. What are you doin' selling shish kebabs? And who are your new friends?
Camieux: Umm, it's kind of a long story. B-but nothing bad happened!
Camieux and the young man do some catching up as they excitedly exchange their tales of adventure.
Camieux: I can't believe we're both here! What an amazing coincidence!
Pyrotechnician: Hahaha. Yeah, it really is! I'm normally not around these parts, but today they're holding this fireworks expo.
Pyrotechnician: They asked us to present some of the stuff we've been workin' on. And that's why we're here.
Camieux: Wow, really? So tonight we get to see something you made?
Camieux: Yay! This'll make a great story for my family back home.
Pyrotechnician: Well, I'm basically just the master's assistant at this point. But I'd still be thrilled if you saw our creations.
Camieux: We'll definitely be there! Uh... That's okay, right (Captain)?
Vyrn: Of course! Can't say no to that!
Lyria: Hehe! I'm looking forward to the show!
The crew sees the young man off as he carries the shish kebabs back to his workshop.
Camieux: Shish kebabs! Get some tasty shish kebabs! We've got the best ones around!
Tough Guy: Hey, you there!
Camieux: Gah! Y-y-you surprised me! Welcome!
Tough Guy: Huh? Don't you welcome me! You got a permit to sell those things here?
Lyria: Umm, well, we never really needed one before...
Camieux: Yeah! And I never heard of a permit for shish kebabs!
Camieux: Your turn. Where did you get a permit to collect money around here?
Tough Guy: Don't give me no lip, kid! How about I sell you a knuckle sandwich?
Camieux: Oh y-yeah? Bring it on!
Fire Flowers in the Sky: Scene 2
While in search of a place to sit for the fireworks festival, (Captain) and the crew run into the same ruffian from before. They see him trying to extort money from the locals and step in to stop him.
Tough Guy: Gah! I'm not gonna forget this!
Camieux: Yeah, get outta here! And don't ever come back!
Vyrn: Man, can you believe that guy?
Camieux: I know! We'll have to tell Kaz about this so he can report it.
Lyria: Good idea. Now let's sell the rest of these things and go to that expo!
In anticipation of the fireworks later, (Captain) and company quickly sell the rest of the shish kebabs.
Lyria: Wow... There sure are a lot of people here. We'd better try and stay together.
Camieux: What is it, (Captain)? Oh yeah, we should hold hands so we don't get separated!
(Captain) holds hands with Camieux and Lyria. Together they walk through the crowd and look for a nice place to sit.
Vyrn: Look! There's hardly anyone over there!
Vyrn flies into the air and scopes out a good spot. He starts to guide (Captain) and company toward it.
But just as (Captain) and the girls start toward the spot, they hear a yell coming from the crowd.
Camieux: Gah! W-w-what was that?
Tough Guy: Whaddya think you're doin'? You gotta pay if you wanna use this spot!
Family Man: No way! I've been holding this spot all night.
Tough Guy: Unless you want a fight, you better shut your trap and open your wallet!
Camieux: It's that jerk from before! Is he out causing trouble again?
Camieux: He's gonna get it now! I'm gonna teach him a lesson!
Lyria: Aah! Camieux, you can't fight him alone!
Vyrn: Great. She's always talkin' about how scared she gets, but now she's running out there guns blazing! We better go help her, (Captain)!
Fire Flowers in the Sky: Scene 3
The local security shows up as (Captain) and company finish teaching the ruffian a lesson. Things settle down just in time for the fireworks to begin, during which Camieux does her best to stay calm and enjoy the show.
Tough Guy: Uwah!
Camieux: Maybe now you'll think twice before trying that again!
Just as (Captain) and company finish teaching the ruffians a lesson, the local security shows up.
Security Guard: Sorry we couldn't get here sooner. We were having trouble getting through the crowd. We'll take over from here.
Lyria: Okay! Thank you and good luck!
Pyrotechnician: Hey, Camieux! Oh, so you guys were at the middle of all that ruckus!
Camieux: Huh? What are you doing here? Isn't the show about to begin?
Pyrotechnician: Well, I heard that a certain someone was caught in a sticky situation. I wanted to make sure you were okay.
Camieux: Really? Oh dear. Well, thank you for coming to check on me! I know how busy you are right now.
Pyrotechnician: Hah. I'm just glad you're okay. And it looks like your friends are doing all right too.
Pyrotechnician: I can tell you guys want to keep the peace around here. I think that's great and all, but don't get yourselves hurt, okay?
Pyrotechnician: I know how much your family worries, Camieux, but I can't exactly keep an eye on you. I have to take care of the fireworks.
Camieux: Oh... I'm sorry for making you worry. From now on, I'll be extra, extra careful.
Giving Camieux a pat on the head, the young man goes off to make the final preparations for the show.
Camieux: Sigh... I know I need to be calm, but...
Camieux: For some reason, I still act like such a dummy...
Lyria: Wow! They're so pretty!
After taking a moment to calm down, Camieux looks up into the sky. In an instant, she too is entranced by the beauty of the fireworks.
Camieux: Wow! Ooo... I don't know if I should be startled by the noise, or if I should be startled by the bright colors...
Camieux: B-b-but anyway, those fireworks sure are great! They're more beautiful than any I've ever seen!
Lyria: Hehe! There's more where that came from!
Camieux: Wow... I hope my heart can take all this!
Vyrn: Haha! You should tell that pyro guy what you think of his work!
Camieux: Y-yeah, you're right! I will!
Though a little frightened by all the noise, Camieux continues to stare right at the fireworks.
She may be getting used to the noise, or she may simply be mesmerized by the fireworks. Either way, she enjoys the show with a smile on her face.
During her time on the shores of Auguste, Camieux has thought a lot about changing herself. For her, this will surely be a summer to remember.
