Jump to navigation Jump to search
While in Port Breeze shopping, the crew run into a girl and her nanny. The girl wants to buy a rare staff before they're all sold out and is trying to get her nanny, who has a bad back, to hurry up. Anna offers to buy a staff instead, so the crew heads for the staff shop.
The crew has stopped into Port Breeze to purchase provisions.
On return leg of the journey, the crew is resting while Anna is practicing her magic.
Anna: Okay... Swoosh!
Lyria: Wow! You're getting good at that, Anna!
Vyrn: Yeah... But what's with the swoosh?
Anna: Well... I've been experiencing a lot as I travel with you guys, so I've been trying things out to see what works...
Anna: And it seems to help if I yell a word with some force behind it...
Vyrn: Yeah, but what does swoosh even—ouch! What's the big idea, Lyria!
Lyria: I think your grandma would be surprised at your magic powers as well!
Anna: Heh-heh... You really think so?
Elderly Woman: Excuse me...
Anna: Eek! Can we help you?
Elderly Woman: I'm very sorry. We've gotten lost... Do you know which way the town is?
Anna: Let's see... The town is... um...
Vyrn: It's that way! But will you be okay finding your way there? It's quite far.
Elderly Woman: But if I don't get there soon, my charge will—
Young Woman: I say, Nanny! Have you found out the way yet?
Elderly Woman: Yes, but it seems it's a little far...
Young Woman: What? Give me a break!
Young Woman: Now what are you going to do? All the staves will sell out!
Elderly Woman: I'm sorry...
Lyria: Um... What seems to be the problem here?
The nanny explains that she has come from a different island with her charge, the daughter of a wealthy family.
They have come to Port Breeze so that the girl can buy a rare staff, but there's a bit of a problem...
Young Woman: Silly Nanny got us lost!
Elderly Woman: I do apologize...
Young Woman: Now let's go! Stop dawdling please, Nanny!
Elderly Woman: Yes of course... It's just that my back...
Young Woman: Like I care! What about my staff? I simply must complete my collection!
Elderly Woman: Of course...
Anna: Hey, hold on a moment!
Young Woman: You talking to me?
Anna: Um... I can go for you! All I have to do is buy a staff, right?
Young Woman: Huh? I suppose that's true...
Elderly Woman: Are you sure it wouldn't be too much trouble, young lady?
Anna: Of course not! The rest of you guys wait here. I won't be long...
Lyria: Hee-hee! Nonsense! We're going with you, Anna!
Vyrn: Yep! I'm sure we can help! Right, (Captain)?
Anna: Everyone... you're all so kind...
Anna: Okay... You just rest that back of yours, Grandma. We'll do the rest!
Golden Days: Scene 2
The crew reaches the shop and is about to buy the last rare staff there, but an imperial soldier suddenly shows up and tries to take it. Anna responds by attacking the bully.
The crew heads to the market in town to buy a rare staff.
Anna: Let's see... Do you think this staff would work?
Lyria: Hmm... It seems about right.
Shopkeep: Hello there! You're interested in that staff?
Anna: Eek! Um... Yes.
Shopkeep: You have a very discerning eye. That staff is particularly rare. It's also the last one we have in stock.
Imperial Mage: Hey, kid... Hand that staff over. I spotted it before you.
Vyrn: I don't think so! It's first come, first served!
Imperial Mage: Huh? Like I care. That staff is perfect for me.
Anna: But we were first...
Imperial Mage: Now look... Let's not make a scene here. I happen to be one of the empire's most distinguished magicians.
Imperial Mage: So hand it over at once. Little girls like you are better off with twigs.
Lyria: Hold it! That's just not fair!
Vyrn: That's right! And Anna's magic is off the scale! She could jinx your butt no mistake!
Anna: Thank you, everyone...
Anna: The young heiress will be annoyed if we return without this staff...
Anna: So there's no way I'll hand it over!
Imperial Mage: Ha-ha! You're pretty brave for such a little girl.
Imperial Mage: Very well. Let's see these supposed magic powers of yours then. But don't blame me if you get hurt!
Lyria: The townsfolk are coming over to watch!
Anna: May the best magician win!
Golden Days: Scene 3
The crew defeats the soldier and delivers the staff to the nanny and girl. But the girl throws the staff away due to a scratch, which leads to an argument between her and her nanny. Anna scolds the girl, which results in her treating her nanny with more respect, and the crew sees them off.
Imperial Mage: Eek! What kind of a monster is this girl?
Anna: Phew... I did it?
Shopkeep: Wow! That was magnificent, young lady! That was some wild magic!
Citizen: Thank you! That soldier has been such a pain in the past, throwing his weight around like that.
The townsfolk gathers around the crew to praise Anna's magic.
Lyria: You did it! Everyone's so delighted!
Vyrn: Yep! Anna's the boss!
Anna: So... um... My magic helped?
Anna: Heh-heh... Grandma, I did it... My magic made someone happy!
Vyrn: All right then! Let's get back to Nanny and her charge!
The crew returns to the plateau and hands the rare staff over to the young heiress.
Young Woman: So you really did go and buy it for me.
Elderly Woman: Thank you so much! You really were a great help!
Anna: Um... It was no big deal...
Young Woman: I'm sorry, but this won't do at all. Look at this! The finish is scratched.
Anna: Huh? It's scratched?
Vyrn: Maybe it got scratched during that battle?
Lyria: Hmm... But you can hardly see it...
Young Woman: Hey! Don't you realize that I'm a collector? It's worthless to me damaged!
Young Woman: Aw... I got my hopes up just to have them dashed. I don't need this garbage.
Vyrn: No! There was no need to break it!
Lyria: Yeah! Anna went through so much for that!
Young Woman: Did she now?
Come on, Nanny. We're done here.
Come on, Nanny. We're done here.
Elderly Woman: ...
Young Woman: Don't just stand there, Nanny!
Elderly Woman: Apologize to them.
Young Woman: I beg your pardon! Are you... giving me an order? But you're just a nan—
Elderly Woman: Apologize at once! To the young lady and everyone else!
Anna: Pardon me, but...
Young Woman: How dare you! Just who do you think you are?
Young Woman: You shriveled, wrinkled... I wish I had never met you!
Young Woman: What the? Where did that come from?
Anna: No! You can't speak to people like that! Especially not the person who raised you!
Anna: You have to treasure her! And cherish her! And love her!
Anna: If you don't, you'll regret it... Because the day will come when she's no longer there...
Nightmare: That's right. You'll regret it, but it'll be too late!
Elderly Woman: Thank you, young lady...
Young Woman: Ugh... What is everyone's problem?
Anna: Do you get it now?
Young Woman: Sigh... Enough already. Nanny, we're leaving!
Young Woman: Come on... Take my hand. Your eyes aren't so good in the dark, right?
Elderly Woman: Right you are, miss.
The elderly nanny thanks the crew, then the girl holds her hand as the two depart.
Anna: How lucky they are...
Lyria: Oh, Anna...
Vyrn: Hey, cheer up!
Anna: Yeah... I'm okay I guess. After all...
Nightmare: We're not lonely, 'cause we have friends!
Lyria: Hee-hee! Yeah, and we'll always be together!
With a smile on her face and memories of her grandmother in her heart, Anna strives ever harder to improve her magic.
