A Brother's Love
After rescuing a young boy and his sister from a pack of monsters, Ryan begins to think of his own sister and becomes jealous of Lucius, whose sister is always around. Ryan then prods Lucius into acting more affectionately toward his sister, causing Lucius to blush.
As part of a mission for Siero, the crew goes to fight off monsters in the forest.
But as they make their way through the trees, they hear a sound off in the distance. The sound of children screaming.
Ryan: We'd better hurry!
Brother: S-stay back!
(Captain) and company run toward the commotion. There they find a boy protecting his sister with a stick as monsters steadily creep closer.
Lucius: Be gone, fiends!
Ryan and Lucius charge in and take on the monsters before anyone else has a chance.
With the flash of a sword and the swing of an axe, the duo fight them off and save the children.
Brother: Thank you!
Lucius: Geez, kid. You thought you could beat those monsters with a twig?
Brother: I'm sorry.
Lucius: Humph... You were pretty brave, though. Impressive.
Ryan: He's right. You did good, kid.
Ryan bends down and ruffles the hair of the kids.
As he does, he looks the boy in the eye and lets out a chuckle.
Ryan: You keep that sister of yours safe, you got that?
The boy gives his sister a big hug and pats her on the head.
(Captain) and the crew watch the adorable scene and smile.
Lyria: It must be nice to have siblings. Now I wish I had some.
Vyrn: Heh heh. Well, these two each have sisters of their own! I'll bet you both know how that boy feels.
Lucius: Yeah, I guess. Anyway let's see these two off to the village.
The crew takes the siblings to the village and then leaves for the ship.
The brother and sister wave goodbye as they watch the crew leave. Ryan smiles back at them, but then he starts to get misty-eyed.
Lucius: What's the matter?
Ryan: I really wish I could see Kunlun now.
Ryan carefully takes out the handwritten letter from his sister, Kunlun. As he reads it, tears begin to well up in his eyes.
Ryan: Sigh. You all went with me to visit my hometown some time ago.
Ryan: But up until then I had just been sending home money and letters. I hadn't gone to see Kunlun at all, so she was pretty mad at me.
Ryan: That's why she didn't want to speak to me then.
Lucius: Humph... I guess that means you haven't seen your sister in a while, have you?
Ryan: Yeah. But she told me in this letter that she would actually see me next time.
Ryan: Heh, I want to give Kunlun a big hug too. Just like that boy did.
Lucius: What? You want to... hug her?
Lucius's eyes grow wide as he stares at Ryan.
Ryan: Come now, you're not that surprised, are you? Maybe you don't understand because your sister is always around.
Ryan: Oh... When two siblings can't be together, they miss each other so much.
Hearing Ryan yell, the crew members in front immediately turn around.
Vyrn: Why are you shouting? Don't scare us like that!
Lyria: Maybe he was just worried about his sister?
Ryan: Aww... Geez, I miss Kunlun. I wish I could see her. Lucius sure is lucky.
Ryan stares directly at Lucius with a look of envy.
Lucius: Hey, don't look at me like that.
Ryan: So, Lucius. Do you show your sister that you care about her?
Lucius: Yeah, I guess.
Ryan: What? Yeah, I guess? That won't do. That won't do at all!
Vyrn: Come on, you don't have to get so worked up about it! I mean, Lucius is—
Ryan: You stay out of this, Vyrn. This is just between us guys with sisters.
Ryan: If you can't say it confidently, your sister can't possibly know that you care.
Ryan: You have to take the time to express your love!
The more Ryan tries to get his point across, the more fired up he gets.
Even Lucius, who wasn't really listening at first, realizes Ryan's point and starts to second-guess himself.
Lucius: (I care about Teena in my own way. Isn't that good enough?)
Lyria: Umm, Lucius. Are you okay?
Lucius: Hey Lyria. If you... had a brother, would you want him to be like Ryan?
Lyria: W-well... I'm not sure...
Ryan: Humph. Lyria has never had a brother before, so she has no idea.
Ryan: So then, let's give it a shot!
Lyria: Huh? What do you mean?
Ryan: Hahaha. We're going to practice showing our brotherly affection, of course!
Ryan: How about it? You be the sister, and Lucius will be your brother!
Ryan: Go for it, Lucius!
Ryan gives Lucius an encouraging pat on the back, but Lucius doesn't share his enthusiasm.
Lucius: Ugh. This is stupid. You don't have to do this, Lyria.
Lyria: If it helps you and Teena, then I guess it's okay.
Lucius: What? What are you trying to say?
Ryan: That's the spirit, Lyria!
Ryan: Hah hah hah hah! All right, Lucius! Lyria will be Teena. Be sure to give her lots of love!
Lyria: Okay, I'm ready! We can start whenever you want!
Lucius: Lyria, how can you be okay with this?
Lucius: Stop looking at me like that! Come on, Captain! You have to put a stop to this!
Lucius: Tch. I can't believe everyone's getting onboard with this!
Lucius: What! Not you too, (Captain)!
Lucius: (Geez. What a predicament...)
In an effort to try and escape, Lucius quietly starts scooting backward.
Ryan: Hey! Are you just going to ignore your sister? You think that'll make her happy?
Lucius: Ack! I... I...
Ryan's words fill Lucius with all kinds of emotions that swirl around inside him.
Lucius: (Ugh... What are these... feelings? What do I do?)
Seeing the worried look on Lucius's face, Vyrn gives him a pat on the shoulder.
Vyrn: Ryan is taking this thing pretty far. Looks like we don't have much of a choice here.
Vyrn: Let's just get this done and head home.
Wait, I ain't no lizard!
Wait, I ain't no lizard!
Lucius: (Hah. I guess he's right. If we're going to put this behind us, we'd better just get it over with now.)
Lucius: (Besides I have to prove it to them. I have to prove my love for Teena.)
Ryan studies Lucius and pauses for a moment. He wants to see if Lucius has turned over a new leaf.
As he does, everyone else follows suit and the air quickly fills with silence.
Lucius: (Ugh! This is so nerve-wracking! But... it's okay. It'll all be over soon.)
Lucius: Let's do this!
Lucius swings his arm around and awkwardly places it on Lyria's head, patting her clumsily.
He then puts on a big brotherly smile for Ryan.
Lyria: Wow, Lucius. Hehe.
Lucius: Tch. Happy now?
Ryan: Great work! See? You can do it if you try!
Lyria: Hehe. That was very sweet of you, Lucius!
Vyrn: Nice job! Even I was surprised. You really looked the part!
The words of praise from the crew cause Lucius to blush. Feeling his face turn red, he starts to dart away but instead turns to face the crew.
Lucius: Humph. Are you just going to stand there all day? We don't have time for this. Let's go already!
Vyrn: Heh heh. You don't have to act so embarrassed! Hey, wait!
The crew follows Lucius back to the ship, smiling all the while as they think of the great moment they had just shared together.
