The Little Lady's Secret
Recently, (Captain) and the party worried about Io because she leaves the ship in secret and comes back injured. They try to trace her actions since she refuses to speak about her reasons, and they find out that she was diligently training her magic against monsters by herself.
Rackam: Come on. How could you come back all beat up like that? What happened?
Io: What I do is none of your concern! Leave me alone!
Rackam: I can’t leave you alone! I thought you just went out on your own, but now you come back this late?
Rackam: On top of that, you’re all battered and bruised! (Captain) was worried, too. Tell me what happened.
Katalina: What’s wrong, (Captain)? Rackam and Io, too. You look tense... Did something happen?
Lyria: Oh, no! Io is hurt! We have to get you treated!
Io: I-I'm fine! This is nothing! I’m sorry for making you worry.
Katalina: Hey! Wait, Io! She got away... What happened?
Rackam: I don’t get it... I was getting worried about her, and she just got mad at me and told me to leave her alone. Maybe she’s at that rebellious phase?
Katalina: I see... I’ll watch out for her tomorrow. (Captain), it’ll be nice if you can help...
Vyrn: Io seems to like (Captain) and Katalina!
Lyria: I’m good friends with Io, too! I wish she would talk to me if something's bothering her...
Vyrn: She sneaked away again this morning... It was tough trying to tail her!
Katalina: I don’t believe it. She was training her magic here... Now that I think about it, Io always wanted to learn flight magic.
Vyrn: Geez! Why does she have to be such a stranger?! I’d gladly help if all she wanted to do was train!
Lyria: Shhh! Stay quiet or Io will notice us!
Vyrn: Oh, whoops! But training by herself where there are monsters is really dangerous.
Vyrn: Geez... I told you so... Here come the monsters!
Katalina: We can’t just sit around and do nothing! (Captain), let’s go and save her!
The Little Lady's Secret: Scene 2
After seeing Io training out of anxiety at not being able to fly, Lyria remembers the existence of the talisman that grants wishes. To obtain the talisman, the party heads to town. However, monsters stand in their way.
Io: How dare you follow me! Even I have a few secrets I don’t want people to know about!
Vyrn: I said I'm sorry! But if it weren’t for (Captain), you would have fallen victim to the monsters!
Io: Oh, be quiet! I can defeat those monsters on my own!
Io: Or what? Are you trying to say that a mage that can’t fly can’t even beat any monsters?
Katalina: Io... It was careless of us. We apologize for hurting your pride by following you.
Katalina: But would you please understand that your friends are worried for you when you come back with wounds?
Lyria: Besides! We all like you a lot, Io!That’s why we want to help you if something is bothering you!
Io: Katalina, Lyria...
Vyrn: (Captain) is worried, too. Just talk to us if something’s on your mind! Although we might not be much help!
Io: (Captain)... Yeah... I’m sorry... I just wanted to learn how to fly as soon as possible.
Io: I didn’t want people to know that I couldn’t do it despite being a mage.
Lyria: Say, Io! I just heard of an amazing rumor! It’s the talisman!
Lyria: Yes! The shopkeeper said that if you hold onto that talisman, any wish you want would come true!
Io: Really?! Just by carrying it? Are you really, really sure?!
Vyrn: Hey, now! That’s not possible...
Io: I want it! Where is that shop?! I’ll definitely make that talisman mine!
Katalina: Oh, brother... She was sulking earlier, and now she’s smiling again. Haha. Now let’s get to town.
Vyrn: ...tsk. That’s why I hate kids. Uh oh. We better take care of these monsters before heading to town.
Io: (Captain)! Let’s hurry up and beat these monsters so I can go get that talisman!
The Little Lady's Secret: Scene 3
A man falsely accused Io of holding the talisman and demanded reparations. However, he was a wanted con artist. When his con was exposed, the man sent monsters after (Captain) and company.
Io: For such a big town, it's pretty run down.
Katalina: There are a lot of thugs around here. I get the feeling they're sizing us up.
Katalina: There are wanted posters placed all around town. Hm... An organization of con artists...
Vyrn: That talisman seemed pretty suspicious to begin with! Could it be from those con artists...?
Lyria: Oh! I found the shopkeeper that told me about the talisman!
Io: Yay! Now I can learn to fly! Hey! Mister!
Katalina: Ah! Hey, wait! She’s gone... I hope nothing happens to her...
Katalina: Hm...? I’ve seen that man somewhere before...
Vyrn: Katalina! We got trouble! (Captain) said that man looks like the guy on the wanted poster!
Io: W-Wait a second! I didn’t know that talisman was so expensive!
Merchant: What?! Ignorance is no excuse! Do you know how much this costs?! You’ll have to pay for it!
Katalina: What’s the matter, Io? What are you arguing about?
Io: Katalina! I-I was just looking at the talisman... and it tore...
Merchant: Hey, are you this kid’s friend or what? Don’t tell me your ruined my merchandise and you can’t even pay for it.
Merchant: What she ruined was really expensive! It’s not some piece of paper you can find anywhere! How are you going to make it up to me?!
Katalina: Is this how you run your scams? You're the con artist from the wanted posters!
Io: Katalina? What’s going on?
Katalina: You advertise something that doesn’t exist, sell at an exorbitant price. And if the buyer doubts you, you demand reparations.
Merchant: Hehe... Looks you found me out! You won't be fooled. Now do you understand, you dummy?!
Io: But... T-Then the talisman that grants wishes isn’t real?
Io: How dare you trample on a maiden’s dream! I’ll make evildoers like you pay!
Merchant: Shut up! What are a bunch of women and kids going to do?! I’ll take you out instead!
Vyrn: H-He sent monsters after us! (Captain), be careful!
The Little Lady's Secret: Scene 4
Io regrets having to depend on the talisman. However, with Katalina’s words of encouragement about her efforts, Io fully recovers. Finding hope in learning her flight magic, Io quickly begins training.
Vyrn: Heh! They were nothing! Let’s hand them over to the officials!
Katalina: Io and Lyria, don’t feel down... That makes me feel sad...
Lyria: But I... I disappointed Io...
Io: It’s not your fault, Lyria. It’s my fault for depending on some talisman.
Katalina: No, the only one at fault is that con artist. You two did nothing wrong. Besides...
Katalina: Io, you’re not going to give up your dream because of this. I know you.
Io: What do you mean?
Katalina: You’re a hard worker and you always try your hardest. Despite how small you are, you are considerate of others. And you also have a strong heart that can stand up to any hardship.
Katalina: I know that you are kind and smart... I know that you are a good kid...
Io: I-I’m normal... And don’t call me small...
Katalina: Yes. I suppose I was being rude to a fine young lady.
Katalina: Even if you can’t fly now, you have many good points about you, Io.
Lyria: Huh? Hehe. Io’s face is all red. Are you embarrassed?
Io: I-I’m not! Being patted on the head... I-It’s not like it makes me happy or anything...
Lyria: Hey! (Captain), look! Io is floating!
Io: Hey, you’re right! I’m floating!
Vyrn: Haha! Awesome! You got the hang of it!
Vyrn: It won’t be long until you can really fly, Io!
Io: (Captain), just you wait! I’ll show you that I will become a great mage!
Io: I’m just itching to start training... Let's get to it!
Io’s stubbornness was lifted thanks to (Captain) and company. One small step forward, and one giant leap for hope.
The day when Io smiles as she flies through the blue skies is a little more in the future. But that is a story for another time.
Picking the Perfect Present
Ryan had been worried. It was almost his dear sister’s birthday. He wanted to get a present he could send back home to her. At the end of his wits, he approached Io for some advice. And so Ryan brought Io with him on on a shopping trip, but the beautiful hair clip they bought had shattered into pieces. With some harsh coaching from Io, Ryan managed to mend the clip with his own two hands. It looked better than ever.
One day on the Grandcypher. Ryan had near worn a track in the deck with his ceaseless pacing. The party decided to speak with him.
Vyrn: Uh... Ryan? What’s the deal? You’re all twitchy.
Ryan: C’mon, Vyrn... it’s no big deal, right?
Lyria: Are you alright? You know you can talk to us about anything, right?
Ryan: Ah, Lyria... oh, yeah! You’ve saved me!
Hearing that, Ryan decided to open up and share what was troubling him.
Ryan: Well, um... you guys know my sister back home? Her birthday’s coming up soon and I have no idea what I should get her.
Vyrn: I got’cha... you’re not sure what she’d like.
Vyrn: How about it? You got any ideas, Lyria?
Lyria: Hrm... I think I’d be fine with anything if someone put a lot of thought into it...
Lyria: I’m so sorry... I wish I could’ve helped more.
Ryan: Nah... it’s the thought that counts, really. Thanks.
Ryan: Oh... so fluffy-wuffy...
Vyrn: Hm? What’s up with you? (Captain)?
Choose: Let’s get some wisdom from Katalina!
- Let’s get some wisdom from Katalina!
- Io should know!
Lyria: Exactly! She’s such a sweetheart! She’ll definitely know what to do!
Vyrn: Er... if you say so, (Captain). Let’s give it a shot.
And so the party decided to get a bit of advice from Katalina.
Ryan: So that’s about it... you have any ideas?
Katalina: Um... sure! I just thought of something great!
Katalina: How does this sound, Vyrn... a life-sized stuffed animal that looks like you?
Ryan: Huh?! A Vyrn... uh, plushie?
Katalina: Hehe... just think of it! Vyrn’s so cuddly... she could squeeze him all day long!
Ryan: Cuddly, eh... great idea, Katalina! I’m gonna make her a nice, squeezable Vyrn plushie!
Ryan: Sigh... a Vyrn plushie... or a plushie Vyrn...
Katalina: Oh, you are just too sweet! I want to help, too! Pleaaaase?! I’m getting all fluttery just thinking about it!
Katalina: All right! Now all we need to do is take Vyrn’s measurements...
Vyrn: Hey! Damnit! Hold up just a second! I’m not your damn toy!
Lyria: Hehe... and I’m pretty sure they both just want a plushie for themselves...
Vyrn: Gah! I’m done with you jerks! Should’ve just talked to Io in the first place!
And so the party decided to get a second opinion from Io.Choose: Io should know!
Vyrn: Haha... yeah, Io looks like she’d have a thing or two in mind!
Lyria: Of course! She’s always so stylish! I bet she’ll be great help!
And so the party decided to get some input from Io.Continue 1
Ryan: So, Io... you think you could help me pick out a birthday present for my sister?
Io: Oh, sure! I’ll pick something that she’s just going to love.
Ryan: Awesome! Thanks a bunch, Io!
Io: Hehe. Don’t you worry. You’re in good hands!
Io: Alright then! Let’s get our butts to town!
The party followed Io to town in search of a suitable birthday present.
In town, Io took the party from shop to shop.
Io: Hrm... I mean, it’s a cute little broach with the bird and all. But don’t you think she might be a little too old for it?
Ryan: Wow... look at all these plushies. What about you, pretty kitty? Oh wait, you little squirrel. Aren’t you so fuzzy-wuzzy...
Io: What d’you think about this pendant? Hrm... maybe something a little flashier?
Ryan: All this fluff... row after row after row. What is this place... this paradise...
Io: Hey! What the heck’re you mumbling about? You sure you’re here to pick out a present?
Ryan: But the plushies... wait, no. Forget about that!
Io: Sigh... are you telling me your sister reaaally wants a stuffed animal?
Ryan: I... well... hrm...
Io: Yeesh... first of all, a present should be something the person wants, not something you want to give them. You got that?
Ryan: Urk... that does sound about right.
Io: Wait just a second there, guy! Don’t get all gloomy! Now I feel all bad...
Io: Hm... how about you pull yourself together and we head on to the next store!
Ryan: Wait... I’m coming!
The party was on what seemed to be its thousandth shop before Ryan finally found a present for his sister.
Ryan: Io... thanks. This hair clip is great. I never would’ve found it if it wasn’t for you.
Io: Teehee! And it’s one-of-a-kind!
Lyria: Yeah! I knew you’d be able to help him!
Io: Ohoho! What can I say? I mean, who else would you go to?
But just then. Our heroes celebration was cut short by a woman’s piercing scream.
Woman: Ahhhhh! Thief!
Thief: Oi! Outta the way!
The thief went crashing into Ryan. The party barely had a chance to react before he was running off again!
Vyrn: H-hey! You okay, Ryan?!
Io: Oh, no! The clip... it’s broken...
Ryan: Why you dirty... thieving... YOU RUINED IT!
Ryan flew after the thief, his face contorted into a mask of demonic rage. In the space of a few seconds, it was over.
But catching the thief did little to lift Ryan’s spirits. The hair clip was broken.
Ryan: This is the worst... and Io worked to hard to find it...
Vyrn: C’mon, man... cheer up.
Lyria: Um, Ryan? Why don’t we all go out together and find something?
Ryan: Sigh... but we had to walk all around to find it. How’m I going to find something better than this...
Io: Leave it to me! It’s not over ‘til the primal beast sings, Ryan!
Io beamed confidently as she almost dragged the party back to the Grandcypher.
Back at the Grandcypher, Io ran back to her cabin and came back proudly clutching two handfuls of jewelry.
Io: Hehe. You think this might be enough?
Vyrn: Wh-whoa... hey, Io... Not to be picky, but aren’t those yours? Can’t say Ryan’s sis is gonna be happy with a regift...
Io: Wrong! We’re going to use this stuff to fix up that clip!
Lyria: ... wow, Io! You’re amazing!
Io: Teehee. You know I’ve got great instincts. It’s going to turn out fabulously!
Ryan: Io?! Are you sure? I don’t want you to have to use stuff you like.
Io: It’s cool! But just check with me before you take anything, okay?
Ryan: Thanks... seriously.
And so Ryan took up Io’s jewelry and took on the task of fixing the clip.
Or so he tried...
Ryan: Io... I, uh... would you mind lending me a hand?
Io: What?! I could’ve sworn you said you were good at arts and crafts and stuff?
Ryan: Well, uh... I like arts and craft. But I don’t think I ever said I’m good at ‘em...
Io: Sigh... fine, fine. I’ll give you a little bit of help. You need to take care of the rest yourself!
Vyrn: Whew... you could ease up a little, Io.
Io: Oh, be quiet! It won’t mean anything if it doesn’t come from the bottom of Ryan’s heart!
Lyria: Hehe... I can’t wait to see how it turns out. Right, (Captain)?
And so, under Io’s watchful and caring eye, the clip was finished.
Finally, the clip that Ryan had put his heart and soul into was sent back home to his sister.
The party was busy arranging a surprise party for Lyria. The biggest surprise of all was that she didn’t even know it was her birthday. Vyrn stayed behind on the ship while Katalina and the others left early in the morning to find a nice present. Not seeing her made Lyria more an a bit uneasy. Once Katalina had returned, they all shared a nice dinner together. Lyria grinned from ear to ear. Friendship really was the best seasoning.
Rackam: Lyria’s still out like a light...
Vyrn: Sigh... well. It’s still pretty early. I don’t think she’s gonna be up for a while.
Rackam: Alrighty, then... Vyrn, (Captain). Hold down the fort while we’re out.
Io: What fort... just keep an eye on Lyria, ‘kay?
Vyrn: Leave it to us! Right, (Captain)!
Katalina: Hey... uh, (Captain)? Are you sure you want to do this? I mean, I could stay...
Io: Oh, jeez! What the heck does that mean?! This was your idea in the first place!
Katalina: Yeah... it is quite a bit...
The sun rose on the Grandcypher.
Rackam, Io, and Katalina had gone out, leaving Vyrn and (Captain) behind.
Io: Hey! How about we get going before Lyria wakes up!
Katalina: I-I’m just saying... we don’t HAVE to give her a surprise party. Maybe we could?
Rackam: Aw, rubbish. A nice surprise is half of the fun!
Rackam: And it’s not like we actually know if her birthday’s today, right?
Katalina: Yeah... I can’t say I know much about where she came from.
Katalina: It’s just... it’s so sad...
Katalina: Today’s the day Lyria and I met.
Katalina: She was so different back then... although she might not remember.
Io: But that makes it perfect! And since she doesn’t have a birthday, we can make today her special day!
Rackam: Yeah! So let’s get moving and get the girl a present.
Katalina: But... it’s like we’re tricking her. I don’t think we need to do all this...
Katalina: And we’re together every day... I think she’ll be worried if I’m not here...
Rackam: Jeez... sometimes you gotta leave the nest, Katalina.
Katalina: Nest?! What nest?! I have no idea what you?
Katalina: Wait a minute! Are you saying I look old enough to be Lyria’s mom?!
Io: Aaaanyway! It’ll be fine! Vyrn can stay back on the ship! Right, (Captain)?
Vyrn: Exactly! Me and (Captain)’ll be here to keep an eye on things!
Io: Hey! So we won’t have to worry even if the Empire comes sniffing around...
Io: And besides... you’ve spent the most time with her, right?
Io: How the heck are we supposed to pick out a present without you?
Katalina: Well... yeah, you do have a point...
Rackam: Then there we go! We’re counting on you, (Captain)!
Rackam: We’ll be back as soon as we can manage it. Just make sure to keep everything hush-hush!
Lyria: Yawn... ahh. Good morning, Vyrn. Good morning, (Captain).
Lyria: ... hm? Is it just me, or is it a bit quiet?
Choose: Late sleepers, eh?
- Late sleepers, eh?
- You just missed them...
Lyria: Oh... then I’ll just go and wake up Katalina!
Vyrn: Whoa! W-wait! Don’t do that! They just went out for a bit...
Lyria: Wha...Choose: You just missed them...
Vyrn: Wha?! Why the hell did you just blurt it out?!
Lyria: Did everybody go out?
Lyria: Hm? But we already did the shopping yesterday...
Vyrn: No, uh... y’see... they had some stuff... business stuff they needed to do. Yeah, that sounds about right!
Lyria: Wait... really?Continue 1
Vyrn: Anyway! They’ll be back in a jiff! You don’t need to look all worried!
Lyria: Erm... are you going out too, (Captain)?
Choose: Sure am.
- Sure am.
- No way.
Lyria: ... oh.
Vyrn: Hey! What the hell’re you talking about?! We’re supposed to stay here, dummy!
Vyrn: It’s fine, Lyria! (Captain)’s not going anywhere! Right?! I said RIGHT, (Captain)?!Choose: No way.
Vyrn: Yeah! Me and (Captain) here decided to stay back!Continue 2
Lyria: That’s a relief... I don’t know what I’d do if you guys weren’t here...
Lyria: Sigh... so everyone else is gone. I hope they come back soon...
Io: Ah! Look, look! That would be pretty good, don’t you think?
Rackam: Hey! Quit running around! Don’t expect us to come find you if you get lost!
Io: No one asked you! And it’s not like I’m going to get lost, anyway!
Io: Hey, Katalina! You think Lyria would like this?
Katalina: ... what? Oh... yeah. Maybe...
Rackam: Sigh... dagnabbit. Katalina here’s too worried about Lyria to even pay attention...
Io: Hey! Snap out of it, Katalina!
Io: You know how strong (Captain) is, don’t you? She’ll be fiiine!
Io: And we’re not that far from the Grandcypher in the first place...
Katalina: Ah... yeah. You’re right. They’re okay... definitely.
Io: Sigh... she’s sick, I swear. You can’t even function if Lyria’s not around!
Io: Fine, then. We’ll find a present ourselves!
Io: Oh! Look! How about that shop? Let’s take a look! Right, Lyr?
Rackam: For the love of... hey, pot? I’d like you to meet kettle...
Rackam: Let’s just find a present and get back to the Grandcypher...
Rackam: I got the weirdest feeling that something’s gone wrong!
Rackam: Whew... how’d we end up getting so much stuff...
Io: Hrm... I think she’ll like it. But maybe we should’ve picked something else...
Vyrn: Oh! Look who the cat dragged in!
Katalina: Lyria! Sorry for being out all day... did you behave yourself?
Lyria: ... snff.
Lyria: Hic... snff... K-Katalina...
Katalina: Lyria?! What did you do?!
Vyrn: I, uh... I don’t know...
Vyrn: She hadn’t seen you since morning. Looks like she went and worked herself into a funk...
Lyria: Hic... a-a-and... snff... you d-didn’t e-even t-tell me... waaah...
Lyria: I-I was... snff... worried sick! I k-kept thinking, snff... wh-what if I n-never saw you again!
Katalina: I understand... I’m sorry, Lyria. I should’ve known better...
Lyria: Mmhmm... snff... b-but you came b-back...
Katalina: I did... and I’m not going anywhere ever again. So don’t you worry... you’re safe.
Katalina reached out to stroke the sobbing girl’s hair.
Rackam: Well, now... this isn’t exactly the kind of surprise I had in mind...
Io: Yeah... I kind of feel bad now...
The party sat Lyria down to explain exactly what they’d been planning.
Io: And you know what? We just couldn’t pick one out...
Io: Like, we weren’t sure what Lyria would like best...
Rackam: I dunno if I’d give a young lady food as a birthday present... seems kinda bland...
In the end, they brought back a veritable mountain of sweets and snacks.
Lyria: I’m so happy! Wow... these all look so good!
Rackam: Haha... guess a bland gift’s not so bad if it’s tasty.
At Lyria’s request, they spread the food out and began to eat.
Lyria: Nom... hehe.
Io: Hey, Lyria! Did’ja try this one yet?
Rackam: Hey, dagnabbit! I was gonna eat that...
Io: What, you’re going to eat all of them yourself? Oh! Lyria! What about this one? It’s absolutely delish!
Vyrn: Oh, damn! We gotta get another one of these apple tarts! Am I right or am I right?!
Katalina: Hehe. Yeah. The bakery’s a little ways away from town. It shouldn’t take too long to get there from here.
Lyria: Heehee... hey, Katalina.
Katalina: Hmm? What?
Lyria: Hehe. It’s just... food always taste so much better when I eat it with you guys.
Katalina: You’re right... definitely. Hehe. There’s nothing better than having everyone together.
They say in a happy circle under a night sky blazing with stars.
