Feel the Love!

Baotorda helps boys and girls working near a treacherous mountain road, but their father is furious at him for interfering with their upbringing. Baotorda is badly shaken, but Ghandagoza cheers him up, and the two of them level out the mountain road, much to the delight of the children.

(Captain) and company, who are on a mission to transport some goods, are walking down a steep mountain path.
Vyrn: Pant... Wheeze... Are we ever gonna get to that village? I'm starving.
Baotorda: Heh-heh. I know it's hard, but try to tough it out just a little longer. We're almost there.
Vyrn: Really? All right, Lyria! Let's find something to eat as soon as we get there!
Lyria: Yeah! Just hearing that makes me feel a bit better! Let's hurry!
But just as the reinvigorated crew is about to get going, the unlikely sound of wood splitting echoes from the nearby forest.
Baotorda: Huh? Let's go see what's going on.
Boy: Ugh... Hyah!
(Captain) and company head into the forest and find a boy struggling to split firewood with an axe that's too big for him.
Vyrn: Yikes! What's he thinking? He's wobbling all over the place with that thing!
Baotorda: Hold it, young man. It's dangerous to lift an axe that's too big for you. Let me take care of that.
Boy: No, thank you. This is really something I have to do myself. If I don't—
Baotorda: Heh-heh... Don't be silly, little one. Now hand me that axe.
Boy: Whoa!
Baotorda takes the axe from the boy.
Baotorda: Hyaaah!
The boy's eyes sparkle as he watches Baotorda make short work of the firewood.
Boy: Ha-ha! Thanks a lot, man!
Baotorda: No trouble at all. Do try to use an axe you can actually lift next time.
Lyria: Hee-hee. Baotorda sure looks pleased.
Vyrn: Heh-heh. Well, helping people is a hobby of his, right?
The crew resumes its journey down the steep mountain path toward the village but soon sees a girl washing clothes in the river.
Baotorda: Oh? What's a little girl doing in a monster-infested place like this?
Lyria: Whoa! There he goes.
Vyrn: Sheesh... What's the big hurry anyway? Well, Lyria, we better help out too!
Lyria: That's right!
As the crew continues down the mountain, Baotorda helps other boys and girls as well.
By the time all this work is done and the goods are finally delivered, night has fallen.
Vyrn: Oh, an apple!
Baotorda: Sorry, guys. I didn't really mean to rope you into all that and make you wait so long to eat.
Lyria: Munch, munch... Oh, it's nothing. Everyone seemed so grateful after all!
Vyrn: Munch, munch... Yeah! I mean, I was hungry and all, but there's nothing wrong with doing a good deed!
Baotorda: Heh-heh... Well, food always tastes better when you work for it. Let's take our time with dinner!
But someone interrupts (Captain) and company as they enjoy their meal.
Father: Hey! You're the ones, right? The guys who were helping kids in the mountains.
Baotorda: Indeed. Those mountains are dangerous, and those kids were having trouble.
Father: Damn... Why couldn't you just mind your own business?
Baotorda: What do you mean?
Father: Well, I'm their father, and you interfered with an important part of their upbringing.
Vyrn: Huh? What are you saying?
The father stares hard at the crew and then reveals that his wife died the other day.
He adds that he has no idea when he'll follow her, which is why he was trying to teach his children to fend for themselves.
Father: Are you guys getting this? Or do you plan to help my kids with their duties every day for the rest of their lives?
Baotorda: Forgive me. I had no idea you had anything like that in mind.
Father: Don't mention it. Everything's fine as long as you understand. I'm sorry to drag you through this even though you were just trying to be kind.
He sighs quietly and leaves the restaurant.
Meanwhile, Baotorda bites his lower lip and practically collapses into his chair.
That night Baotorda stares up at the sky alone.
Baotorda: Hmm... Forever pure, forever righteous. It seems I still have a ways to go to live up to that. A long ways.
Baotorda: Heh-heh... Mistaken kindness, huh? I'm such a meddler. Ha-ha.
Lyria: Oh dear... Baotorda looks pretty upset.
Vyrn: Hmm... We need to try to cheer him up... Huh?
A gigantic figure approaches the miserable-looking Baotorda, who's practically curled into the fetal position.
Ghandagoza: Ha-ha! What has the world come to when a Holy Knight is reduced to this? Get it together!
Baotorda: Huh? Ghandagoza?
Ghandagoza: All right, tell me what's on your mind.
Ghandagoza sits down next to Baotorda with a thud and stares at the side of the knight's face.
Baotorda: I was only trying to make those children happy. But now I have no idea what to do.
Baotorda: I feel like I can't do anything right anymore. Sigh...
Ghandagoza: Ha-ha! Are you really all the Holy Knights have to offer? You call that righteousness? How disappointing!
Baotorda: Hold it. I won't allow even you to make a mockery of the Holy Knights.
Ghandagoza: Oho? And what do you plan to do about it? You're just a little man who can't even walk his own path of justice!
Baotorda: I'm warning you. Don't make me take up my sword.
Baotorda, who was downcast until only moments ago, rises to bravely face Ghandagoza.
Baotorda: As a defender of justice, I would—
As Baotorda begins his speech, Ghandagoza claps his massive hand against the knight's back.
Baotorda: Oof!
Ghandagoza: Ha-ha! Now that's more like it! That's the hero I was lookin' for, Baotorda!
Baotorda: ...
Ghandagoza: Giving up doesn't suit you. I know your convictions run a lot deeper than that.
Ghandagoza: I've lived my entire life by my fists, but seein' you this way is almost enough to make me weep into them!
Ghandagoza: And that's why I know you should live for something you believe in! Ha-ha!
Baotorda: Heh-heh... So you say I should follow my path straight to its end. Was a truer maxim ever spoken?
Deeply impressed by Ghandagoza's words, Baotorda's eyes twinkle.
Baotorda: But how am I supposed to do that?
Baotorda's eyes continue to twinkle as he stares at Ghandagoza, waiting for the man's next words.
Ghandagoza: Ha-ha! Follow me!
Vyrn: Phew. It was touch and go for a minute there, but it looks like everything turned out all right.
Lyria: Yeah! But all that suspense made me hungry. Heh-heh.
Vyrn: Heh-heh. Me too. I say we head back to the inn and eat something!
Ghandagoza: With these fists nothing is impossible!
Baotorda: Hyaaah! Forever pure, forever righteous!
Ghandagoza: True greatness is not achieved in a day! Again!
Baotorda: Hyaaah! Forever pure, forever righteous!
Strange scraping sounds reverberate through the air for the rest of that night.
When the children head up the mountain the next morning to go about their duties, the once perilous mountain path is completely level.
Girl: The mountain path... How could this be, bro?
Boy: Ha-ha. Wow! But who in the world could have done this?
No one is there to respond to their questions, but the children find the sun smiling down at them that day.
