(Captain) and company find themselves working at Sierokarte's beach house. Lecia shows up and tries on her new swimsuit. Though she lacks confidence in how she looks, (Captain) praises her and gives her the confidence to work.
Sierokarte: Well, that sums up what I need you guys to do at the beach house.
Sierokarte: Any questions?
Lyria: Nope! I think we've basically got it!
Vyrn: Yeah, it doesn't sound too hard!
The crew has accepted Sierokarte's invitation to come and work at the beach house.
(Captain), together with Vyrn and Lyria, have been briefed on the necessary tasks.
Sierokarte: The next thing to explain would be the account ledgers.
Sierokarte: But they're actually pretty complicated. Lyria, are you sure you and Vyrn want to get into this?
Lyria: Actually... I'm not sure I'd be able to understand it.
Vyrn: Well, I can count and all, but that's about it.
Sierokarte: In that case, I'll just explain this part to (Captain) then.
Sierokarte: For the time being, you two know everything you need to.
Vyrn: All right! We're gonna hit the beach then!
Lyria: You don't have to rub it in, Vyrn! (Captain), come find us when you've finished talking to Sierokarte.
Sierokarte: Hehe. Those two are quite the pair.
Sierokarte: Now about those account ledgers...
Sierokarte: Huh? Is someone there?
Sierokarte: Lecia, is that you? What exactly are you doing hiding over there?
Lecia: Ah, well... There's actually something I'd like to ask you, Sierokarte.
Sierokarte: Okay. What can I do for you?
In response to Sierokarte's beckoning, Lecia timidly comes out into view.
Lecia: It's about the, um, swimsuit I ordered.
Sierokarte: Is that all? It's already arrived!
Sierokarte: The dressing room is empty, so go ahead and try it on.
Lecia: What! Y-you mean here and now?
Sierokarte: Of course! If you're not happy with the size or design, it's best to get it fixed right away.
Sierokarte: Besides, I'm sure (Captain) here would be happy to tell you how it looks on you.
Lecia: Um... B-but...
Lecia: Sigh... Just gotta say it—I've never worn a swimsuit in front of anyone before.
Sierokarte: Oho, now I get it.
Sierokarte: So you don't want (Captain) to see you in a swimsuit, huh?
Lecia: What! That's not it at all! I want the captain to see me in a swimsuit!
Sierokarte: Sounds like there's no problem then. The dressing room is right this way.
Lecia: Ugh... (Captain), please don't get your hopes up.
Lecia takes the swimsuit and dejectedly heads to the dressing room.
Sierokarte: Well, it sounds like Lecia's done changing! Come on out, Lecia!
Lecia: I've only worn fairly plain swimwear for Enforcer swimming drills.
Lecia: I picked this one because this is sort of a special occasion... You don't think it's too daring, do you?
Choose: Lookin' good!
- Lookin' good!
- I'd like to see the plain swimsuit too.
Lecia: Really? You think so? Please tell me straight. I promise not to get mad...
Sierokarte: No, you really mean it, don't you, (Captain)? I think it looks great too.
Lecia: Really? I'm so relieved to hear that.Choose: I'd like to see the plain swimsuit too.
Lecia: Um... So you're trying to say this swimsuit is no good, right?
Sierokarte: That's not what you meant at all, right, (Captain)?
Sierokarte: Hehe. I bet you just meant you want to see her in other outfits.
Lecia: Oh, really? That's such a relief.Continue 1
Lecia: Phew... Having you look at me has given me a bit more confidence, (Captain).
Sierokarte: Well then, are you going to join Lyria and the others, Lecia?
Lecia: Not today... I thought I'd just go to the beach house to help out.
Lecia: They seemed pretty busy there when I passed by.
Lecia: I'll see you later, (Captain)!
Without waiting for a response, Lecia runs off towards the beach house, seemingly in good spirits.
Sierokarte: Hehe. Lecia is as hardworking as ever, isn't she?
As Lecia continues serving customers, she begins brimming with confidence.
Soon she becomes one of the most popular employees at Sierokarte's beach house.
Lecia ropes (Captain) into joining her in a beach volleyball tournament. They win their games for the day, but their next opponents ambush them on the way home to try to knock them out of the competition.
Cheered on by their adoring fans, Lecia and (Captain) keep their eyes on the ball.
Lecia: Here it comes! Get it, (Captain)!
(Captain) manages to set the ball high in the air toward Lecia, who readies herself for a spike.
Lecia: Aaand... Hi-ya!
Lecia's attack blows the two opposing defenders away, and the ball slams into the sand.
Several days earlier, Lecia had approached (Captain) with a request.
Lecia: Um... (Captain), do you have a minute? I have a bit of a favor to ask.
Vyrn: What is it? Is something wrong? You can tell us.
Lecia: Um... Well, you don't have to if you're busy, but I was wondering if you might want to do something with me...
Lecia: Check this out! I want you on my team!
Lecia thrusts a flyer into (Captain)'s hands.
Lyria: Let's see... A beach volleyball tournament?
Lecia: Yes. When I was in the Crew of Enforcers, everyone was so enthusastic about beach volleyball...
Lecia: Running around on the sand is a great workout for your legs. It was a big part of our training.
Lecia: There was also a woman called the witch of the beach who used to show up to our matches.
Lecia: And I sort of have a secret dream...
Lecia: A dream of becoming the number one beach volleyball player in all of Auguste!
Lecia: (Captain), please! Pair up with me so we can enter this tournament!
Vyrn: Heh-heh! I've never seen you get so pumped up before, Lecia!
Unable to withstand Lecia's overwhelming enthusiasm, (Captain) gives in and agrees to enter the tournament.
Lecia: Yay! You're the best, (Captain)!
Lecia and (Captain) enter the competition and quickly advance up the standings.
Still glowing from the day's victories, the two head back to their hotel.
Lyria: Congratulations! You two were both so cool out there!
Lecia: He-hee. Thanks, Lyria.
Vyrn: Good luck tomorrow! All that's left are the semis and then the final, right?
Lecia: Yes, but we still need to keep our guard up.
Vyrn: Heh-heh! I get what you're saying, but you two should get some rest tonight.
Lecia: That's not actually what I mean. (Captain), ready your weapon.
Thug 1: Hey, you're the ones we're supposed to go up against in the next game, right?
Lecia: You're competing in the tournament? Do you want something?
Thug 2: Heh, no need to act dumber than you look. You know what we're here for.
Thug 1: Hehe... We hate losin', but there's no way we can beat you in a match.
Thug 2: Yeah, so we're gonna make sure you can't compete tomorrow—or do much of anything else!
Lecia: I can't believe it. How could they let thugs like this into such a prestigious volleyball competition?
Lecia: But we won't sink to their level. Let's decide this tomorrow on the court.
Lecia: As annoying as it is, we'll just have to teach these guys a lesson without hurting them!
Beachside Showdown: Scene 2
Lecia and (Captain) are trying to catch up to their opponents in the volleyball final. They have a chance to score, but Lecia suddenly runs off the court to protect a child playing on the beach from a monster that has suddenly appeared.
Lecia and (Captain) beat the thugs in the tournament fair and square to move on to the final.
Vyrn: Gulp... I don't know why, but even I'm starting to feel a bit nervous.
Lyria: Good luck! We're cheering for you!
Lecia: Thanks, you two.
Lecia: And, (Captain)... How will I ever repay you for getting me here?
Lecia: Just one more game. Let's give it everything we've got!
The final match begins.
Lecia's serve blasts over the net and barely stays within the court boundaries.
Opponent 1: Oho! Not bad!
Opponent 2: Heh-heh... You've got skills, I'll give you that. But this tournament is ours!
In a dazzling display of coordination, the opposing team returns Lecia's powerful serve.
Lecia: Ugh... I guess there's a reason these two ended up in the final. They're good!
Lecia: But I won't lose... I can't lose! I know we can do this, (Captain)!
(Captain) and Lecia are in a back-and-forth battle with their opponents.
But the two skyfarers eventually start to fall behind, and now they're playing catch-up.
Lecia: Pant... Pant... (Captain), we can still turn this around.
Lecia: But they'll finish us off if we let up even a bit! This is where the game will be decided!
As the two of them rally, the opponent's serve the ball.
Lecia: (What's this? It's so slow, and it's at such an easy angle!)
Lecia: (I'm probably not gonna get another serve like this... This is my chance!)
Lecia: (Captain)! I've got this!
Lecia suddenly appears to be shocked by something and runs off the court looking terrified.
Vyrn: Hey, where are you going? The game's not over yet!
Lecia: Faster, Lecia... Faster!
Lecia sprints towards a child playing on the beach.
Lecia: Look out! Run!
With a single move, Lecia strikes down a monster that has reared up behind the child.
Lecia: (Captain)! This monster is just one of a whole swarm! More will come!
Lecia: I need your help! We can't let anyone here for the game get hurt!
Beachside Showdown: Scene 3
Thanks to Lecia's quick thinking, (Captain) and company defeat the monsters before anyone is harmed. The final match is restarted, and (Captain) and Lecia manage to win, growing closer in the process.
Thanks to Lecia's quick thinking and decisive action, (Captain) and company defeat the monsters before anyone is harmed.
The final game is restarted, and the teams eventually come up on the match point.
Lecia: We just need one more point. If we score on this serve...
The opposing team serves a fast ball, which heads straight for the edge of Lecia and (Captain)'s side of the court.
But (Captain) somehow intercepts it and passes it to Lecia.
Lecia: Good hustle, (Captain). Now let's finish this.
Lecia: Here comes my special move! Lightning Spike!
Opponent 1: Haha—now that's what I call a spike! We never had a chance!
Lecia's final spike is so powerful that it has produced a mini sandstorm. And from the whirlwind, two victors emerge.
Lecia: Phew... We did it, (Captain). We actually did it!
Lyria: Congratulations! That was amazing! Lecia, (Captain), well done to the both of you!
Vyrn: Heh-heh! I knew you two would win the whole thing!
Lecia: Everyone... Thank you.
Opponent 2: Haha! I've gotta hand it to you. I've never seen anyone play like that before!
Opponent 1: Yeah, and such coordination. It's almost like you could read each other's mind.
Lecia: Huh? Me and (Captain)?
Lecia: No, it's nothing like that! I mean, we're not that close yet...
Lecia: Oh! Not that I'm saying I'd be opposed to that...
Lecia: It's just that we haven't known each other that long.
Lecia: I like (Captain) and all, but I'd prefer to ease into it.
Vyrn: Good grief. So much for the confidence I saw earlier.
Lyria: Lecia, could you teach me how to play beach volleyball?
Lecia: Yes, of course! I'll teach all of you!
Beach volleyball quickly becomes something of an obsession among the crew.
They end up playing more than a few heated matches during the remainder of their vacation.
