Flight of the Lovebirds
As Lowain and the bros sit around talking in a Port Breeze cafe, the conversation turns to a previous daydream about Tomoi and Freesia fleeing the empire. In the next part of the story, Tomoi accepts Freesia even after seeing her mutated form, and they succeed in making their escape together.
There once were a young man and woman who succeeded at making a daring escape from the empire—in a daydream, at least.
For the sake of the woman he loved, the man was willing to put everything on the line to help her flee from danger.
And from that moment, true love began to blossom between them.
Tomoi: Pant... Wheeze... We've come so far, and they still haven't given up?
Freesia: You fool, the empire will never let us go. I know too many of their secrets.
Freesia: It doesn't matter where we go. They will follow us to the bottom of the sky.
Potato-Punk: Heheheh... I guess the commander here doesn't amount to much after all.
Freesia: No... They're here already?
Freesia: Tomoi, forget about me! It's too late...
Potato-Punk: Heheheh! Even the strongest officer in the empire has to run out of steam eventually!
Freesia: There's an airship descending! Is that the Grandcypher?
Potato-Punk: No... How could he have pulled this off?
Tomoi: Ahahahaha! Don't underestimate the empire's smartest officer! Come on, Freezie!
Freesia: Yes! And thank you, Tomoi...
Tomoi: I don't need your thanks, Freezie. Just order me to protect you, and it's done!
Freesia: Tomoi... From this day forward, make sure you always protect me! That's an order!
There is a cafe on the corner of a busy shopping street in Port Breeze...
Lowain and the bros sit around shooting the breeze as they wait for the crew to return from a mission.
Lowain: Dude, I was totally gobsmacked. I'm tellin' you, it woulda been runner-up in a contest for the most jaw-dropping news ever.
Tomoi: Pfft! Not even first place?
And what the heck are you even talkin' about? Hit me with the deets, bro.
Lowain: Take a wild guess, Tommy. What else could it be? I'm talkin' about Freezie wakin' up.
Elsam: Oh, the real deal? Not some imaginary girlfriend? I got you, bro.
Elsam: She's been zonked out ever since her fight with the crew, right? But... Freezie, huh...
Lowain: Whoa, hang on, Sammy. You know somethin' about all that?
Elsam: Nah, no idea. I just think it's good she didn't kick the bucket, I guess.
Elsam: But it's complicated, y'know? I mean, the captain almost died. And, like, the whole world was in danger.
Lowain: Oh yeah... That Freezie chick was up to some crazy stuff.
Lowain: Dude. Just thinkin' about it gets me all bummed out.
Tomoi: Urgh... Sob... Sniff...
Lowain: Huuuh? Whatcha cryin' about, Tommy?
Tomoi: I-I'm just... so g-glad... Freezie's alive!
Elsam: Dude, I forgot Tommy's, like, totally into her.
Lowain: For sure. He's cray-cray to the max.
Tommy, you're cryin' too much, bro.
Tomoi: B-but, dude...
Lowain: By the way, somethin's been eatin' at me for a while. Can I be straight with you, man?
Elsam: Ohhh? Time for a passionate confession?
Lowain: I wanna know what happens after you and Freezie escape together. Since the real one just woke up and everything.
Lowain: So how's it go down? You escape with her on the G. Cyph or somethin'?
Tomoi: Huh? Well, yeah. What else would we do?
Lowain: But, like, what if the captain and Freezie run into each other on the ship? We'll have another War on our hands, man.
Elsam: Dude, I can totally see that. Think we oughta ditch the lovebirds?
Lowain & Elsam: Let's ditch 'em!
Tomoi: Wha! Who let you decide! Some bros you are, screwin' up our grand escape! Whose side are you on anyway?
Lowain: Dude, we're on the side of the world. We totally saved the world just now. You oughta be thankin' us.
Lowain: So anyways, Tommy... This is where we part ways. Have a good life with Freezie.
Elsam: Take it easy, Tom and Freezie.
Tomoi: What the heck, dudes! Are your hearts made of stone? You're just gonna abandon us like that?
Tomoi: You just watch! We'll make it outta this all on our own!
This is the story of a valiant escape, carried out with remarkable determination.
In order to liberate Freesia from the torment of her grave responsibilities, Tomoi came up with a scheme to help her flee from the empire.
They had originally planned to make their getaway on the Grandcypher, but further consideration made them change their minds.
Instead the pair have decided at the last moment to escape on a stolen imperial airship.
Tomoi: This way, Freezie!
Freesia: Right behind you!
Tomoi and Freesia manage to slip past the imperial soldiers and make their way toward the airships lined up at the port.
But they arrive to find a startling number of guards waiting for them.
Tomoi: Dude! It's like an imp convention around here!
Lieutenant: Gahahahaha! Say your prayers! There's nowhere for you to run!
Imperial Soldiers: ...
Freesia: This is bad, Tomoi! They have us surrounded!
Tomoi: We're totally screwed!
Lieutenant: Heh heh... My sympathies, Commander.
Lieutenant: Now, what do you say we strike a deal? Hand over the Prime Minister, and I'll spare your life!
Tomoi: You expect me to just sit back and let you take my Freezie? Is that supposed to be a joke? You gotta be kiddin' me!
Lieutenant: So much for negotiations. Then you leave me no choice...
Lieutenant: I'll have your heads, here and now!
Imperial Soldiers: ...
Lieutenant: Oh, what's this? Do you have something to add, Prime Minister?
Freesia: Tomoi, I can't go with you after all.
Freesia mutters the words sadly and takes a step toward the group of imperial soldiers.
Tomoi: Huh? What're you talkin' about, Free—
Tomoi's question is drowned out by a sudden burst of light and sound.
He opens his eyes to see Freesia before him, her body mutated by dark essence.
Tomoi: Freezie... Is that you?
Freesia: I didn't want you to see me like this...
Freesia: But I'm willing to do whatever it takes to protect you!
Lieutenant: Y-you monster! Attack! Attaaack!
Imperial Soldier 1: Urgh!
Imperial Soldier 2: Oof!
Lieutenant: Ngh... We've no choice but to regroup! Retreat! Retreat!
The lieutenant assembles his troops, and they hastily flee the area.
Freesia: I suppose I can't hide it anymore, Tomoi. This is my true form.
Freesia: Please be honest. Just tell me you want nothing to do with me now that you've seen me in this unsightly state.
Freesia: (You'll be in danger as long as you're with me. Please, Tomoi, save yourself!)
Tomoi: Gotta say, I'm disappointed, Freezie.
Freesia: That's what I expected—
Tomoi: You thought I'd hate you just 'cause you look different?
Tomoi: You look so freakin' rad, I think I'm fallin' for you all over again. Try puttin' your hand to my chest. My heart's beatin' wicked fast.
Tomoi: But I guess you won't fit on a ship lookin' like that.
Freesia: What do we do now? We can't stay here—someone else will come looking for us.
Tomoi: No worries... I know just the thing!
Tomoi and Freesia make their way to the top of the imperial palace, otherwise known as the Tower.
And just as one might expect, they find themselves cornered as soldiers pour in to seal the exits.
Lieutenant: Gahahahaha! Fools! You cut off your own retreat!
Tomoi: Tch. You dudes don't know when to quit. Just how many of you are there?
Freesia: The lieutenant's right! Why did we come here of all places?
Tomoi: I have a plan. Think you can trust me, Freezie?
Tomoi's eyes are filled with determination. Sensing his firm resolve, Freesia nods.
Freesia: All right. You have my trust, no matter what happens.
Lieutenant: You managed to turn the tables on us last time, but you're no match for our numbers now! It's time to meet your demise!
Tomoi: Hah! No thanks!
Tomoi: Here goes! Clickity-click!
Tomoi pushes a switch on the wall, and the entire tower begins to shake.
Lieutenant: W-what the! What have you done!
Tomoi: Heh... I had it all set up before you dudes even got here.
Tomoi: The top of this tower's gonna blast off into the air like the G. Cyph!
Lieutenant: Impossible! When did you manage that!
Tomoi: Ahahahaha! Don't underestimate the empire's smartest officer! A good soldier always has a trump card up his sleeve!
Tomoi: Later, potato-punk! Come see us when you get fired! We'll give you a job peelin' vegetables!
As the top of the tower slowly rises into the air, the soldiers blocking the exits are flung from the structure one after another.
Lieutenant: Ngh... Damn it! All forces, fall back!
Tomoi: Liftoff! We have liftoff!
Using condensed energy to propel itself, the top of the tower soars into the air.
And thus the pair successfully escape from the empire, leaving danger far behind them.
Freesia: The sky is so beautiful...
Freesia: I never dreamed I'd get the chance to gaze upon a view like this again.
Tomoi: It's a miracle created by the power of our love.
Freesia: Oh, you. Don't be silly.
Freesia: The dark essence's power seems to have weakened.
Tomoi: Heh. Good stuff.
Tomoi: Promise me one thing, Freezie?
Freesia: What is it?
Tomoi: Don't do anything crazy like that ever again. I'm thankful to you for savin' my life, but that was bad for my heart.
Freesia: Oh? Is that an order?
Tomoi: You're free to punish me if you don't like it, Prime Minister.
Freesia: Well, well. Aren't you cheeky.
Freesia: But I like that about you.
Having made it through their grueling trial, an unwavering bond of love is forged between them.
No matter what hardships await them in the future, they will overcome them together.
Tomoi: So? Whaddya think?
Lowain: Dude, Tommy, you're such a bro. It didn't faze you one bit when Freezie turned into that dark essence thing.
Elsam: That was the best part. She fell for him just like that.
Lowain: He didn't take out any imps though.
Elsam: And they only got away thanks to Freezie.
Tomoi: Dude, lay off! That stuff doesn't matter!
Elsam: So? What happens after the two of you fly off into the sunset?
Elsam: Huh? Whaddya mean, "Huh?"
Lowain: What's that, Sammy? You wanna know what happens?
Elsam: More than that... I wanna know what Freezie's normal life is like. I'm just curious.
Lowain: I wanna know too. Wonder what kinda chow she likes...
Lowain & Elsam: Potatoes?
Elsam: Haha! That doesn't match her at all!
Lowain: Bahaha! Just thinkin' about her munchin' on a potato cracks me up. Actually, that's freakin' cute.
Tomoi: Knock it off, dudes! Leave Freezie alone!
Lowain: Sorry, bro. But I can't even imagine how rich dudes eat. All those table manners and stuff.
Elsam: Then why don't we come up with some ideas?
Lowain: Oh, I'm totally on board.
Lowain: So, listen—whaddya think of this?
And so the tale of Tomoi and Freesia's daring escape continues. But what fate lies in store for them?
To be continued.
Fantasy and Reality
Lowain, Elsam, and Tomoi continue fleshing out the story of Tomoi and Freesia's great escape. The pair wander the skies in search of a new home, but thanks to Lowain's storytelling, they end up crash-landing on an island, and the force of the impact causes Freesia to lose her memories.
Lowain and the bros pass the time chatting about one of Tomoi's daydreams as they await the crew's return.
In the daydream, Tomoi and Freesia have succeeded in fleeing from the empire.
This is the tale of what happens after they make their daring escape.
Having fled from the clutches of the empire, Tomoi and Freesia finally find themselves out of harm's way.
They wander the skies in search of a new place to call home. But luck doesn't seem to be on their side.
Tomoi: Dang! The rudder's busted!
Freesia: Have we no choice but to plummet to our deaths?
Tomoi: Grab hold, Freezie! I'm not gonna let you die!
Freesia: Understood! I leave my life in your hands, Tomoi!
Thanks to Tomoi's death-defying steering, the pair manages to make an emergency landing deep in the mountains of a certain island.
They are knocked out by the crash, but luckily the force of the impact is cushioned by trees, and they manage to avoid serious injury.
Tomoi: Ngh... Where are we?
Tomoi: Oh, right. The rudder quit workin' all of a sudden, and we had to crash-land in some mountains...
Oh yeah! Freezie!
Suddenly remembering that Freesia had been with him, he scans the area in a panic.
But Freesia is nowhere to be found.
Tomoi: Heeey! Freezie!
Tomoi calls out to her, but there's no response.
Tomoi: (I bet she's hurt somewhere. But she couldn't have gone far...)
Tomoi: (...! Don't tell me she was caught by imps!)
Shivering in horror at the thought, he tears through the forest in search of Freesia.
Tomoi: Huff... Puff...
Tomoi: Freezie! Where are you? Answer me!
Tomoi: Dammit! I don't see her anywhere! I bet it really was those imps—
Tomoi spins around upon hearing a rustle in the bushes behind him.
He cautiously creeps over and peeks behind the bushes to find Freesia slumped on the ground.
Tomoi: I'm so glad you're okay! I was crazy worried—
Freesia: Stay away from me!
Tomoi is confused by Freesia's sudden exclamation.
Tomoi: Huh? What? Why're you so freaked out? You turnin' macho in the head or somethin'?
Freesia: Who... are you?
Lowain: Something like that.
Lowain: Chick loses her memories, and the dude knows her past but doesn't tell her.
Lowain: Instead he just stays by her side and watches over her. How's that? Juicy, huh?
Elsam: Freezie's lost her memories! I never woulda thought of that.
Elsam: But, like, does your personality change when you lose your memories? I mean, she was all freaked out and squealin' and stuff.
Lowain: Chill out about the deets, bro. Ain't it just the perfect setup?
Lowain: So whaddya think, Tommy? The opinion box is open, so cast your vote.
Tomoi: Freezie turnin' all sweet, huh?
Tomoi: Yeah... Yeah, I dig it.
Lowain & Elsam: Aw yeah! Wahey!
Thanks to Lowain's storytelling, Tomoi and Freesia have met with misfortune once again.
What effect will this turn of events have on their life together?
Fantasy and Reality: Scene 2
The daydream continues with Tomoi and Freesia starting a life together in an abandoned house in the mountains. Having lost her memories, Freesia treats Tomoi kindly, but he misses her usual spunk and vows to help her recover from her amnesia.
Tomoi and Freesia live a quiet life in an abandoned house in the mountains.
Despite having lost her memories, Freesia was won over by Tomoi's kindness and grew to trust him.
Freesia: Here, Tomoi. Say "Ah!"
Freesia: H-how is it? I tried making a salad from some grass growing near the house.
(It just tastes like a bunch of weeds...)
Freesia: Really? I'm so glad! There's plenty left, so eat up!
Freesia: Oh no! You're looking a bit pale, Tomoi.
Freesia: You must be tired from working in the mountains. Oh, I know! I'll give you a massage!
Tomoi: That's super sweet of you!
Freesia: Thump, thump. How's that? Does it feel all right?
Tomoi: Haha. Is there anything you can't do, Freezie? That's just the right amount of force!
Freesia: Hehe. I'm delighted to hear it.
Freesia: I just want you to know, I'm extremely happy right now.
Tomoi: Hey, what's that about all of a sudden?
Freesia: I'm grateful to you for being so kind to a perfect stranger like myself.
Freesia: I'd do anything for you. I want to make all your wildest dreams come true.
Freesia: So feel free to give me any order you like. I'll do whatever it takes to make you happy.
Their life together is picture-perfect.
But for some reason Tomoi feels dissatisfied.
Tomoi: Ugh... Aaaaahhh!
Lowain: Whoa! What's wrong, Tommy?
Elsam: That totally freaked me out... I think my heart almost stopped.
Tomoi: This is all wrong! That's not my Freezie!
Tomoi: Listen, dudes! Freezie's whole appeal is the sweet, sugary center hidden within that hard candy shell!
Tomoi: Freezie without her spunk is like curry without roux! I want nothin' to do with it!
Lowain & Elsam: R-right...
Lowain: D-dude, is it just me or is Tommy givin' off some crazy vibes today?
Elsam: Somethin' set him off. Ain't no stoppin' him now.
Tomoi: Freezie... I'll help you get your memories back!
Having realized his mission, Tomoi makes his declaration to Lowain and Elsam.
His passionate feelings for Freesia spur on further wild delusions in his mind.
Fantasy and Reality: Scene 3
As the daydream carries on, Tomoi and Freesia begin training to help restore Freesia's memories. But one day an imperial soldier in love with Freesia comes along and kidnaps her. Tomoi tries to save her but is defeated. Just as the soldier is about to deliver the finishing blow, Freesia's memories return, and she stands to face the soldier.
Tomoi has resolved to restore Freesia's memories, no matter what it takes.
After three days and three nights of brainstorming, the two finally embark upon Tomoi's fearsome training regimen.
Tomoi: Meaner, Freezie! Be meaner!
Freesia: You fool! Imbecile!
Tomoi: Still not mean enough! Let it all out!
Freesia: Loser! Scumbag! Maggot!
Tomoi: No! Make your gaze colder! Look at me like I'm a piece of trash!
Freesia: L-like this?
Freesia: Humph. Useless scum! I'll have you die for me! Muahaha!
Tomoi: My heart skipped a beat... Yeah! Just like that! That was freakin' awesome!
Freesia: Did I really say things like that before? It's hard to believe...
Tomoi: So? Remember anything?
Freesia: I'm sorry. Not a thing.
Tomoi: Haha! No sweat! Time for the next round!
Tomoi's training program consists of Freesia hammering him with verbal and physical abuse.
Her assignments range from hurling insults at him to striking him with a whip.
Tomoi: Don't hold back, Freezie! Smack me with that whip like there's no tomorrow!
Freesia: All right! Here I go!
Freesia: Take that! And that!
Are you all right, Tomoi? Did I hit you too hard?
Tomoi: Haha, I can tell you're from the empire. That didn't even tickle!
Tomoi: Bring it on!
And so the rigorous training continues day after day, from dusk till dawn.
But one day, misfortune creeps back into their lives.
Freesia: Okay, time for another day of training!
Freesia: Oh, welcome home, Tomoi! You're already finished picking wild vegetables?
Freesia: Oh my, you look absolutely dreadful. Shall we save the training until after we eat?
Freesia: Ouch! Let go!
Freesia: You're not Tomoi!
Imperial Soldier: Tch... Shut up! I advise you to come along peacefully, or else!
The soldier draws his sword and presses the blade to Freesia's throat.
Imperial Soldier: Humph. So you finally decided to stop struggling. That's more like it.
The soldier places Freesia in restraints and leads her away.
Shortly afterward, Tomoi returns home from scavenging for food.
Tomoi: Honey, I'm home! Dude, I hit the mother lode today, Freezie!
Hearing no response, he tilts his head to one side in confusion.
Tomoi: That's weird... She still asleep?
While wandering around inside the house, Tomoi notices a footprint on the floor.
Tomoi: This footprint... It's gotta belong to an imp!
Tomoi: Dammit! I thought somethin' felt fishy!
Having instantly deciphered the situation, he flies out of the house following the trail of footprints.
A short while later, Tomoi catches up to the imperial soldier in the forest and grabs him from behind.
Tomoi: Huff... Puff...
Hold it right there!
Imperial Soldier: Tch! That was faster than I expected!
Tomoi: Hang on, Freezie! I'll save you!
Tomoi: Dude! Why are there imps around here anyway? You can't tell me this deserted island's under your control!
Imperial Soldier: Of course it is. But I'm not here on orders from the empire!
Tomoi: Huh? Then what gives!
Imperial Soldier: I'm the same as you! I'm in love with Freezie!
Tomoi & Freesia: Huh?
Imperial Soldier: I've been miserable since the day she left!
Imperial Soldier: I abandoned my duties to search far and wide for any clues to her whereabouts, and now, at long last, I've finally found her!
Imperial Soldier: However she is no longer the same Freezie she once was... And you are the one who caused this tragedy!
Imperial Soldier: I cannot allow her to stay with you! I will see to it that she returns to the empire safe and sound!
Tomoi: You've got a lot of nerve runnin' your mouth like that. I do feel responsible for what happened to Freezie, but...
Tomoi: That's no reason for me to hand her over. She ordered me to protect her for life!
Tomoi: So give her back!
Imperial Soldier: Humph. What exactly do you plan to do without a weapon?
Tomoi: Won't know until I try! Don't underestimate the empire's smartest officer!
Imperial Soldier: Hyah!
Tomoi: That was close...
Imperial Soldier: See? She deserves better than rubbish like you! Haha! Hahaha!
Tomoi: I couldn't protect her... There was nothing I could do...
Lowain: Huh? You lost? Isn't this supposed to be the part where you beat the bad guy and save the day?
Elsam: Bummer. I was expectin' some kinda epic moment where you bust out with an awesome power-up or somethin'.
Tomoi: But, like... I can't lie to Freezie, y'know?
Lowain: Dude, this whole thing is a lie.
Elsam: Baha! He went there! 'Bout time!
Tomoi: I mean, we're talkin' about imps here! They've had tons of trainin' and stuff.
Tomoi: I thought we were tryin' to keep this realistic!
The Trio: Yeah!
Lowain: So do we let Freezie take care of it?
Elsam: That's a disgrace to all dudes.
Lowain: Then is it time for us to make our epic entrance?
Elsam: Nah, that'd be a total bummer. The context's all outta whack.
Lowain: Then I guess it's all up to Freezie...
After much heated deliberation, the bros decide to let Freesia handle the situation.
Tomoi: Huff... Puff...
Imperial Soldier: Hurts, doesn't it? But don't worry. I'll put you out of your misery.
The soldier slowly raises his sword and aims it at Tomoi.
Freesia: Stop! Anything but that!
Freesia's head suddenly erupts with pain as countless memories rush into her mind.
Freesia: Aah... Aaaaahhh!
I remember! I'm...
Imperial Soldier: What! She broke the chains!
Imperial Soldier: That's what I get for binding them loosely, so as not to harm that soft, fair skin of hers!
Freesia: You'll have to kill Tomoi over my dead body! Say your prayers!
Imperial Soldier: Tch! I don't want to fight you, but you leave me no choice!
Imperial Soldier: Hyaaah!
Fantasy and Reality: Scene 4
The daydream ends with the imperial soldier being defeated and Tomoi and Freesia continuing their flight together. Caught up in the epic tale, Tomoi decides to confess his feelings to Freesia in real life, but he is firmly shot down. Fortunately he has his bros there to console him.
Imperial Soldier: Urgh!
Freesia defeats the soldier in a flash and rushes to Tomoi's side.
Freesia: Tomoi! Are you all right?
Tomoi: Freezie... You got your memories back... I'm so glad...
Freesia: Fool! Worry about yourself instead of me!
Tomoi: Haha. So harsh... But I wouldn't have you any other way...
Freesia: You need to be punished for making me defy your order not to do anything crazy! I won't have you dying on me before then!
Freesia: (He's losing too much blood... He needs treatment immediately! But I don't have any medicine!)
Suddenly Freesia sees medicine being thrust toward her.
Imperial Soldier: Use this. There's still time.
Freesia: But why would you help me?
Imperial Soldier: I can't bear to see you in pain. That man's important to you, right?
Imperial Soldier: If you stay here, someone else is eventually going to come after you. Take my ship and use it to escape.
Tomoi: You're just gonna let us get away? They'll have your head...
Imperial Soldier: Worry not. I dedicated myself to the empire because Freesia was there, but with her gone there's no reason for me to stay.
Imperial Soldier: I know I can trust you to protect her. Don't make me regret this, Commander!
Tomoi: Heh... I don't need you to tell me. I'll protect her for as long as I live!
Thanks to the imperial soldier's help, Tomoi and Freesia are finally able to leave the island.
They soar through the skies toward nowhere in particular, whispering sweet nothings into each other's ears.
Freesia: I was so worried about you, Tomoi. For a moment I thought you were really going to die.
Tomoi: And leave my Freezie behind? No way. Unless it was for your sake, of course.
Freesia: Fool. I'll have you know that's not funny.
Freesia: Hey, what do you say we fly someplace where we can be alone? We can make it our own little heaven on earth.
Tomoi: Bahaha! Sounds awesome! We'll make our own little clan!
Freesia: I love you, Tomoi. Promise me you'll stay by my side and protect me forever.
Tomoi: You got it!
Having overcome yet another obstacle standing in their way, Tomoi and Freesia renew their vows to love each other for all eternity.
The future that lies before them will surely be overflowing with love and happiness.
Lowain: And they both lived happily ever after. Now call over Korry, won't you, bro?
Elsam: Dude, that ending was too sickeningly sweet. I think I gagged a little.
Tomoi: So how was that? Love conquers all!
Elsam: That imp was a real bro. Maybe we've been wrong about those guys all along.
Lowain: That makes Tommy double the bro for earning his approval.
Tomoi: Right? I'm a total bro!
The Trio: A total bro!
Tomoi: Dude, Freezie's got me totally head over heels. I think it's about time I go see her.
Lowain: Oooh! Is this what I think it is?
Elsam: You finally gonna tell her how you feel?
The Trio: Wahey!
Caught up in their epic tale, the bros head off to pay Freesia a visit in real life.
They arrive at the prison to find Freesia resting.
Lowain: Duuude. Freezie's even more of a babe than I remembered.
Elsam: Totally. What a hottie.
Freesia: You three are members of the Grandcypher's crew?
Freesia: I see. I do feel like I've seen you before.
Freesia: Do you need something from me?
Lowain: Dude, she remembered us! Now's your big chance!
Elsam: You got this, Tommy!
Tomoi: Freezie, I—
Freesia: Freezie? Are you referring to me?
Freesia: I'm quite certain we've never met before.
Freesia: And even if we had, don't you think that form of address is rather impolite?
Tomoi: Uh... Er... Um...
Freesia: If you've nothing to say, I'm afraid I'll have to ask you to leave. I'm still recovering.
Tomoi: Oh. Sorry...
Tomoi falls silent and takes his leave along with Lowain and Elsam.
The bros decide to drink away their troubles following Tomoi's complete and utter rejection.
Tomoi: Sigh... This sucks.
Lowain: Cheer up, Tommy. Not even a love machine like me coulda captured that babe's heart.
Elsam: Baha! Since when are you a love machine?
Elsam: But, dude, I'm impressed. That took some real guts, man. Even if you were shot down.
Lowain: Love is a long road, Tommy. Hang in there, bro.
Lowain: I think we oughta honor Tomoi's bravery. Whaddya say we have a toast?
Elsam: Dude, I'm down with that! Keep 'em comin'!
Tomoi: All right! Let's party till the sun comes up! See if you can keep up, dudes!
Lowain & Elsam: Wahey!
After being faced with the harshness of reality, Tomoi finds a new sense of appreciation for his bros.
And so the trio return to their peaceful everyday lives.
