Korwa receives a request to make a wedding dress but decides to turn it down. She explains the significance of a wedding dress, and why she hasn't made one that she is happy with. The party heads toward the customer to deliver the bad news.
Korwa has a request for (Captain).
Korwa: The tailor shop received an order for a wedding dress but the customer asked for me, specifically, to make it.
Korwa: I hate to do this to a customer but, unfortunately, I have to turn it down. Can we go talk to the customer?
Lyria: Ooh, a wedding dress? I'm sure the bride would love a wedding dress made by you.
Korwa: You're making me blush. But to me, a wedding dress means something more.
Korwa: I saw a wedding dress for the first time at a wedding when I was a little girl. That's why I became a fashion designer.
Korwa: The dress was beautiful, of course, but it wasn't just that.
Korwa: For a bride, it's only the beginning of a long journey toward a happy ending.
Korwa: There are many hardships on the road of marriage, but it's the blissful memories that help us overcome them.
Korwa: A wedding dress is part of those blissful memories. It's so much more than just a dress.
Vyrn: This is the first time I've ever heard you say something so serious.
Vyrn: That's some really deep stuff!
Korwa: Yeah. I still haven't been able to make a wedding dress that I'm satisfied with.
Korwa: As an artisan, giving a customer an incomplete work is unimaginable. That's why I can't accept this job.
Seeing Korwa's resolve, (Captain) decides to help Korwa.
Korwa: Thanks. Okay, let's get going!
Interwoven Fates: Scene 2
The wedding dress was intended for the customer's daughter, who is being married off as part of a strategic marriage. The crew escorts the hapless bride to another island to see what kind of man she is marrying.
The crew arrive at the customer's house.
Korwa: I'm terribly sorry, sir. I'm grateful that you asked for me personally, but my skills are still lacking.
Korwa: I can't accept your request at this time. I apologize from the bottom of my heart.
Bride's Dad: I see. You came all the way out here to tell me personally so I guess it can't be helped.
Bride's Dad: Since this is going to be a marriage of convenience, I'd hoped to at least give my daughter the most beautiful gown in the world.
Bride's Dad: You could say it's my way of being a loving father.
Korwa: Marriage of convenience? What do you mean?
Bride's Dad: I understand how my daughter must feel, but this is what you would call a tactical marriage.
The dejected crew leave the house.
Korwa: Tactical marriage! Did he say tactical marriage?
Korwa: Ugh, what a greedy slimeball! He doesn't care about his daughter at all, he's just in it for the money and power!
Korwa: There's no way this could end happily ever after, no matter how you look at it!
Korwa: Think, think, think! Okay, what if she runs off with the person she truly loves?
Korwa: No, actually, what if she seizes her happiness with her own two hands?
Vyrn: Geez, she's still off in her own little story world.
As if on cue, the bride suddenly appears beside Korwa.
Bride: Um, excuse me. Were you the ones that came to my house just now?
Lyria: Your house? Oh, are you the one getting married, by any chance?
Bride: Yes. Um, I know we're complete strangers, but if you have a moment, I would like to ask you for a favor.
Lyria: Sure, no problem! What can we do for you?
Korwa: Do you want us to kidnap you?
Bride: Oh no, nothing like that. I want to meet the man I'm supposed to marry, just once, before the wedding.
Korwa: Huh? You've never even met him before?
Bride: We used to play together when we were kids but I haven't seen him since then.
Bride: I just want to know what kind of person he's become. I've prepared myself for the worst.
Vyrn: So, we need to take you to the island he's living on, right?
Bride: Yes. Is that okay?
Korwa: Leave it to me! I'll even cover your travel expenses.
Bride: You really shouldn't...
Korwa: It's fine; this is my mission. I'm going to make sure you find happiness.
Bride: Thank you!
Vyrn: Great, let's get a move on, (Captain)!
Interwoven Fates: Scene 3
The groom is a good-natured person who suffers from an illness. The couple quickly develop a close relationship as the crew watch on. A scoundrel tries to cut in, and the crew rush over to save the day.
The crew and the bride arrive at the estate of the fiance.
Many people are busy preparing the grounds in preparation for the big day.
Korwa: I wonder if someone who lives here is sick.
Lyria: Hm? What makes you think that?
Korwa: Everyone's wearing spotless clothes, and there's a lot of laundry being hung out to dry. Feels like a hospital, don't you think?
The workers steal glances at the party as they enter the mansion.
Ailing Man: Who is it? Please, come in.
Bride: Excuse me.
Ailing Man: You look familiar. Ah, I remember now! We used to play together sometimes, as kids.
Bride: Yes! I'm glad you remember.
The young man is delighted by her visit, and greets the crew warmly.
Ailing Man: I'm deeply sorry for not coming to see you sooner. I was stricken with an illness last year, and I still haven't recovered from it.
Bride: Yes, father told me about it. You seem to be in good health, now. I'm so relieved.
Ailing Man: It warms my heart, knowing that you were worried about me. Would you like to go for a walk together?
(Captain) and company follow from a distance to let the two lovers walk and talk in peace.
Lyria: Aww, he's such a nice guy.
Korwa: Yeah, that was a surprising twist. Is this it? Have we come to the exciting conclusion?
Korwa: "She lovingly nurses the bedridden man back to health, and their love blooms like never before."
Korwa: Hm, not yet, I can't let my guard down. He might just be pretending to be sick. He could be evil.
Korwa: "Here comes the bride, her once beautiful face now covered in dirt and tears." Boo! Bad ending, no thank you!
Vyrn: Eh, Korwa? Ah, it's no use.
Korwa: I can't stand it! Someone prove this man's worth to me!
Ailing Man: Hehe, how nostalgic. We used to walk down this road, didn't we?
Bride: Giggle. Remember the time when we got lost? Now that I think about it, how did we get lost in the first place?
The couple are deep in conversation as they walk around the city, oblivious to the party walking behind them.
Lyria: I don't think we have to worry about those two anymore. What do you think, Korwa?
Korwa: Mm, it certainly seems that way. Aside from his illness, he seems like the perfect fiance.
At Korwa's suggestion, (Captain) decides it's time to stop following the couple.
Bride: Eeeek! What are you doing?
Arrogant Man: Hehehe, dump this weak loser and come with me with instead.
Lyria: Oh no, those two are in trouble! We have to go help them!
The crew dash back toward the couple.
Ailing Man: Stop it! Let her go right now!
Arrogant Man: Tch, whatever, you annoying runt!
Ailing Man: Oof!
(Captain) steps in just as the young man is about to be punched.
Korwa: Anyone who gets in the way of two lovers' fate deserves to be crushed like a bug.
Arrogant Man: Huh? What the heck are you talking about?
Korwa: It's useless explaining it to you! Someone who's never experienced pain would never understand!
Interwoven Fates: Scene 4
The groom tries to protect his bride, despite his illness. The bride, seeing his steely resolve, falls in love with him. The scene provides Korwa with the inspiration she needs, and she rushes back to the Grandcypher to create many new designs.
Arrogant Man: Ahhhh!
Korwa: Get back here! I'm not through punishing you yet!
Vyrn: Whatever, we drove him off. That's good enough. Let's make sure nobody's injured. Hey buddy, are you ok?
Ailing Man: Yeah, I'm okay. I'm sorry to drag you into saving us.
Ailing Man: And I'm sorry I couldn't protect you. I'm useless.
The young man looks at his betrothed, and hangs his head in shame. The bride's face turns red.
Bride: Please don't say that! I know you were trying to save me. That's enough to make me happy.
Korwa: We just witnessed two people falling in love.
Korwa: Hee hee, the look on your faces says it all.
(Captain) and company escort the bride back to her home. They return to the Grandcypher.
Korwa: Thanks to today, I've got some great ideas for new designs. I'd better get to work before I forget them.
Lyria: Korwa! It's dinnertime! Oh my, how many sketches did you draw? I can't even see the floor.
Korwa doesn't notice, and continues to draw. (Captain) and Lyria quietly close the door.
Thanks to what happened today, Korwa will surely create a new masterpiece.
