The crew decides to take advantage of a day off by going on a picnic. Katalina wants to make a packed lunch for Lyria, but, when she goes to town to buy ingredients, she's ambushed by monsters.
In the beautiful grasslands on the outskirts of Port Breeze, (Captain) and company are enjoying a brief respite from their journey.
Vyrn: What lovely weather. Wouldn't it be nice to just spend the whole day napping in the grasslands?
Katalina: As much as I'd love to watch you sleep, I think it's a perfect day for a picnic.
Lyria: A picnic? What's that?
Vyrn: Ah, so you've never had a picnic before? A picnic is... well...
Katalina: You find a great natural locale, enjoy the scenery, take walks, and eat with your friends.
Katalina: Eating under a blue sky makes anything taste that much better.
Vyrn: And it'd definitely be nice to cut loose for a change. Right, (Captain)?
Lyria: Wow! I want to go on a picnic! I want to eat good food!
Katalina: Of course you do. And I can make lunch! It'll be delicious.
Vyrn: Ok! But wait a second... Are you sure you really want to cook?
Vyrn: No one's forcing you to. Everyone is cut out for dif—
Katalina: It's fine! I can do it. I'm sure I can!
Vyrn: What should we do, (Captain)? This could get ugly.
Katalina: All right! Now to go to town to gather ingredients!
Vyrn: Y-Yeah! (She sounds so confident...)
Though the gentle winds generally bring a bountiful harvest and peace to this town, the crew witnesses a terrible sight.
Monsters have suddenly started appearing, and the people are living in fear.
Vyrn: So much for having a picnic! What should we do, (Captain)?
Katalina: We can't very well ignore the people of this town if they need our help!
Katalina: Let's move, (Captain)!
Operation Picnic: Scene 2
(Captain) and company are given plenty of ingredients as thanks for defeating the monsters. Katalina is sure she'll be able to make a great lunch, but monsters attack the crew to get at the ingredients.
After chasing off the monsters that appeared in town, (Captain) and company are thanked by the overjoyed people.
To show their appreciation, they give the crew ingredients of the finest quality.
While Katalina is now even more motivated, a pall of anxiety hangs over (Captain) and the others on their trek back.
Vyrn: Hey, guys... I'm so worried about what's going to happen to all those nice ingredients.
Katalina: Hm? Did you say something? Still, what a wonderful bunch of ingredients they gave us.
Vyrn: Tell me about it! I think it would be better if we just eat them as-is!
Katalina: All right! I'll definitely make a wonderful lunch!
Lyria: I just can't wait! My first picnic and a lunch from you!
Katalina: It seems that I need to reign in my enthusiasm, because these monsters managed to surround us. Are they after the ingredients?
Vyrn: What? I know these monsters came to the city and all, but they've got some pretty refined tastes!
Katalina: I will defend these ingredients! For my friends, for justice... and for lunch!
Vyrn: Whatever you say! Let's just get them, (Captain)!
Operation Picnic: Scene 3
Katalina cuts down the monsters with remarkable ease, but the lunch she makes is... less impressive. While the crew tries to enjoy the picnic in spite of this, more monsters attack.
Vyrn: Awesome, Katalina! Those are some nice sword skills!
Katalina: But of course. As a team, my sword Rukalsa and I are peerless.
Vyrn: Makes it even more surprising that she can't handle a kitchen knife, right, (Captain)?
Katalina: Hm? Did you say something?
Thanks to Katalina, the crew brings the ingredients back safely. The crew looks on with bated breath as Katalina starts making lunch...
Vyrn: Hey! Are you trying to lose a finger or what? You can't use knives like that!
Katalina: Vyrn... Would you please not shout in my ear? It'll make me slip and... Ahhh!
Vyrn: Whoa! Watch it! I can't bear to watch this... (Captain), do something!
While everyone looks on, Katalina manages to finish preparing the food.
Katalina: How about that? Told you I could cook if I cared to try!
Lyria: Wow! Your lunch is so colorful!
Vyrn: A little too colorful, if you ask me...
Vyrn: But Lyria seems happy, so let's just try to enjoy the picnic!
Katalina: I'm glad you're having fun, Lyria. Come, everyone! Ready for the picnic?
Vyrn: So it's time to eat "lunch"... Can't say my stomach's been looking forward to this. Are you ready, (Captain)?
Lyria: Yay! The picnic lunch is finally here!
Katalina: You're very welcome. Now eat up!
Vyrn: What's the matter, (Captain)? What? You hear monsters?
Katalina: More monsters... I bet they're here for my lunch this time.
Katalina: This lunch was made for Lyria, and no monster will touch it while I still stand! Hop to it, (Captain)!
Operation Picnic: Scene 4
When a monster convulses in pain after eating Katalina's lunch, the crew can only shudder. Lyria is depressed by the ruined picnic, so Katalina tries to cheer her up by volunteering to make dinner, not realizing how reckless she's being.
Vyrn: Look out! There's one monster left!
Monster: F-Food... Food?
Lyria: Ahhh! It's eating Katalina's lunch!
Katalina: No! That's Lyria's! And my sweat and blood went into it! How dare you!
Katalina: You will pay for this, you fiend! I'll... Huh?
Monster: B... Blargh!
Vyrn: Wha? The monster just collapsed! Katalina's cooking is even more devastating than her sword!
Katalina: It seems that human food doesn't sit right with them.
Vyrn: I... don't think that's the case here, but let's just leave it alone.
Lyria: Ugh... Our picnic lunch is ruined, and after all of Katalina's hard work...
Katalina: It pains me to see you looking so upset, Lyria. Try to smile for me.
Lyria: Katalina... But...
Katalina: We can always have another picnic.
Vyrn: Yeah! And the news isn't all bad! Thanks to the monsters, we didn't have to ea—
Choose: Too bad we didn't get to try your fine cooking!
- Too bad we didn't get to try your fine cooking!
- I can't wait for the next picnic!
Vyrn: You're braver than me, (Captain). Just thinking about that pile of colors is almost too much for me.Choose: I can't wait for the next picnic!
Vyrn: Are you sure you should be saying that? I get cold chills just seeing Katalina holding a kitchen knife! I've had enough already!Continue 1
Vyrn: What? I should shut up now for Katalina's sake?
Katalina: I have to live up to (Captain)'s expectations, too. I'll make an even better lunch next time!
Lyria: Yeah! I'll be looking forward to it!
Katalina: I know! Since you missed out on lunch, how about I make dinner tonight?
Lyria: Really? I'll help out! It'll be even more fun with the two of us!
Vyrn: Uh-oh, (Captain)... Looks like the nightmare continues.
What should have been a relaxing interlude for the crew ends in disappointment.
But Katalina's kindness strengthens the bond between her and Lyria even more.
Lyria: Right! (Captain), I need you to be my taste-tester. Let's make tonight's dinner one to remember!
Farrah didn't know what to do with all the leisure time she had on her hands. She set out with Katalina for the town. There the duo had a run-in with some ruffians who were terrorizing the townsfolk. Though her special break was spent eliminating the ruffians, Farrah smiled with satisfaction, as nothing made her happier than spending time with Katalina.
(Captain)'s party swings by an island on their route to refresh their supplies.
For a time, the monsters saw fit to leave the islanders in peace...
Farrah: Miss Katalina! I took the liberty of mending your cloak!
Katalina: Ah. Thanks, Farrah.
Farrah: Miss Katalina! They've got tea here! And look at these sweets!
Katalina: Thanks, Farrah.
Farrah: Miss Katalina! I'll go ahead and tidy up the cabin! Just let me know if you need anything...
Katalina: H-hold on! What in the heck is going on here?! Farrah! You look like you belong in the crazy house!
Farrah: I-I... I was just bored, is all...
Farrah: I, um... I just thought I could do something to help you instead of lounging around!
Farrah: Miss Katalina! What's with this place?! How'm I s'posed to relax with all this quiet?!
Farrah: Gah! All this easy island living... I'll be rusted solid in a week!
Katalina: True... I suppose things can happen even in a place like this. You'd better save your energy in case it does.
Katalina: Not to mention you've been working hard since morning. I don't have anything planned for you today. How about we take a break?
Farrah: Wha?! We're stopping already?!
Vyrn: Yeah! It sure is hard work taking care of you sops! I need a day off!
Vyrn: Y'know? Am I right or am I right?
Choose: You're on dinner detail tonight, Vyrn
- I'm with Katalina
- You're on dinner detail tonight, Vyrn
Vyrn: What?! Wait, what?! Me?!
Vyrn: Hmm... might be better than whatever Katalina cooks up.Choose: I'm with Katalina
Farrah: I see... if you say so...
Vyrn: Anyway! It's on! You just let us take care of it!
Farrah had resigned herself to a disturbingly relaxing day...
Katalina: What's wrong, Farrah? You look a bit out of it...
Farrah: I give up... What the heck am I s'posed to do with all this free time?!
Vyrn: Whoa, now... you've got a break. Why don't you go somewhere?
Farrah: That's the thing... I can't think of anywhere...
Vyrn: Sounds like a job for you, Katalina!
Katalina: Me?! Not that I mind... but where would we go...
Vyrn: Oh, psh! It's the journey that counts! Let's just get going!
Katalina: So, erm... here we are at the town market...
Farrah: Hehe! This is the first time you and I have been out together!
Katalina: You're right... we never got the chance when we were in the army.
Merchant 1: Oh! You, there! Dear Knight! Lay your eyes upon the finest swords you will ever see!
Katalina: This blade has quite a rare inscription...
Merchant 2: Fresh sweet potatoes for the young miss! One taste and none other will do!
Farrah: Oooooh! We used to have these all the time back home! I never thought I'd see them again!
Katalina: Wow... how exactly are you supposed to prepare them?
Farrah: I liked mine in a nice, hot soup... but you can roast 'em, too!
Katalina: I'll see... I'll be sure to keep that in mind...
Woman's Voice: Aaaaah!
Farrah: It came from over there!
Ruffian 1: Wahaha! Get ‘em! Nothin' but a buncha yellowbellies!
Scoundrel 2: Ahaha! It's a simple deal! Your lives for your valuables!
Merchant 3: Save us! Outsiders! Outsiders in the town!
Katalina: Wait! What the hell do you lot think you're doing?
Farrah: Miss Katalina and I will put a stop to your wicked deeds!
Scoundrel 1: What?! This doesn't concern you!
Scoundrel 2: Hah! Big words from a twig and a fun-sized knight! Get ‘em! You take the right!
Ruffian 1: Eeee!
Scoundrel 2: Forgive us!
Katalina: Have you had enough?! You bunch of good for nothing! Be prepared to forfeit your lives if you ever again raise a hand in violence!
Scoundrel 1: Eeee!
Farrah: You really are the best! Snip, snap, and done!
Merchant 1: Wow! It sure is handy to have a knight or two around!
Merchant 2: Thanks muchly! You really saved our bacon!
Vyrn: So? How was your day out with Katalina?
Farrah: It was the best! We took on some no-goods that were causing trouble in the market!
Farrah: Hehe... and look at this! We have these sweet potatoes back home, too! One of the folks in the market gave them to us!
Katalina: Hehe... sounds like we'll be enjoying some of Farrah's local cuisine for dinner tonight.
Vyrn: Hrm... you beat up some ne'er do wells and got us ingredients for dinner...
Vyrn: What the... hey! You're ALWAYS beating people up!
Katalina: Ugh... we were supposed to take the day off, weren't we?
Vyrn: Geez... this is why you guys can't have nice things...
Farrah: Hehe! All I wanted was to be with Miss Katalina!
Katalina: Yeah... it was a real blast getting to hang out with you, too.
And so the Grandcypher took to the skies once again.
It wasn't just the sweet potatoes that Katalina and Farrah took with. Most of all it was the value of spending a little quality time together.
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.
