Scenario:Milleore - A Heavy Reward
From Granblue Fantasy Wiki
A Heavy Reward
(Captain) and company decide to tour the town, surprisingly with Milleore as their guide. They enjoy the peaceful moment of rest. However, a group of ruffians who were after Lyria appear and launch an attack on them.
(Captain) and the crew decided to stop by an island. Hearing that the Erste Empire had no part on this island, everyone relaxed.
It had been a long time since they were able to enjoy the rest. The party set out to tour the town.
Lyria: Hehe. It’s been so long since I’ve been able to shop around like this!
Katalina: Yeah. We could only supply ourselves with the bare necessities on all the other islands because they were watched by the imperials.
Katalina: Haha. Now that we’re free to walk around town, it’s hard to decide where we want to go.
Milleore: The north side of town is a residential area. If you want to look at shops, it’d be more efficient to stay in the south side where we’re at now.
Milleore: I think there’s a lot of food places in this area.
Milleore: On that note... The cake shop three doors down is supposedly very popular.
Milleore: If I’m not mistaken, I think you would really love the place, Lyria.
Lyria: Really? Katalina! I want to go there!
Katalina: Um, sure. I mean, I don’t mind... Milleore, are you offering to scout the town for Lyria’s safety?
Milleore: No... I just wanted to see if I could find a shop that might sell tools for my crossbow.
Milleore: If you want to build a trusting relationship with the person you’re guarding, things like this are necessary, right?
Milleore: It’s not like I intend to become friends but I won’t neglect performing at least the necessary level of interaction.
Lyria: Hehe... It’s still nice to know. Thank you, Miss Milly.
With Milleore as their guide, the party came to a cake shop to enjoy their break from their adventures. However...
Katalina: You know... If you eat too much now, you’re not gonna be able to eat dinner.
Katalina: Haha... You’ve got something on your cheek. Come on, you can eat the rest of it later.
Lyria: Hehe. These snacks are so good...
Ruffian 1: Well, well. Look what we have here. Isn’t she that “Lyria” girl?
Ruffian 2: Heh! If we catch her and turn her in, we can get enough money to not work for a month! What a lucky job! Hey!
Katalina: Lyria! What are you guys...?
Ruffian 2: Muhahaha! We just get you guys to shut up and we’re done here! Really! An easy job we got! Hey!
Milleore: Stop right there. If you don’t want to regret this, just walk away.
Ruffian 1: Oh, what’s this? A little runt wants to play with us?
Ruffian 2: Heh! Look at her! She’s even equipped with a weapon! What’s a Harvin doing trying to look like a soldier?!
Milleore: Look down on me all you want. It makes my job a lot easier.
Ruffian 1: Heh! You’re gonna regret this! You little punk!
Milleore: Fighting is my job. I won’t let you lay a finger on Lyria.
A Heavy Reward: Scene 2
(Captain)’s party is able to defeat the ruffians. But soon after, they find themselves surrounded by many imperial soldiers. Milleore finds a gap in their defenses and slips past them, leaving the rest of the group behind. The party is captured and about to be thrown into prison. Just then, Milleore appears and shoots her arrows at the unsuspecting imperial soldiers.
Ruffian 1: This is... madness...
Milleore: I hope you’ve learned your lesson. Harvin warriors are not weak.
Milleore: Do they not teach you on this island? If you ever see a Harvin bowman, duck first.
Imperial Soldier 1: Heh... Thanks for the warning.
Katalina: Wha?! Imperial soldiers! Why, on this island?
Imperial Soldier 2: Hah! You were caught in our trap! We played around with the information here.
Katalina: Grh... They’ve got us completely surrounded!
Katalina: Huh? Where’d Milleore go?
Milleore had somehow managed to escape from the imperials’ formation. She looks at (Captain) and company with a cold stare.
Milleore: I’ve worked enough for my pay with that last battle. Sorry, but I’m done with you guys here.
Lyria: But... Milleore...
Imperial Soldier 1: Hahaha! What a dependable ally you have! Lieutenant Katalina!
Imperial Soldier 1: Now go! Capture the guinea pig and Lieutenant Katalina, and don’t forget to take (Captain)!
Unable to do anything, (Captain)’s party was captured. They were then taken to a large castle.
Imperial Soldier 3: Oh right, I almost forgot to mention. Lieutenant Katalina. Furias would like to speak to you directly after this.
Imperial Soldier 1: Heh. He’s probably going to smack that head off your neck. Your time is finally up!
Imperial Soldier 2: Hah! What a waste of your beautiful face! But oh well. Not like it matters to me!
Imperial Soldier 3: Come on! Get in your prison cells!
Just as the imperial soldier was about to kick Katalina into the cell...
Imperial Soldier 3: Gah!
Distracted by Milleore’s rain of arrows, the imperial soldiers begin to lose formation. Milleore rushes in and quickly retrieves the key to the shackles.
Lyria: Whaa?! Milly?!
Imperial Soldier 1: You little...! Why are you here?
Milleore: “Why?” you ask? You really want to know?
Milleore: It was a mistake for you to ask that question. You should’ve used that time to call for help.
A Heavy Reward: Scene 3
Milleore defeats the imperial soldiers and saves (Captain)’s party. Everyone tells her how thankful they are, but Milleore just blushes in embarrassment. Katalina asks her if she’s just shy. Without saying a word, Milleore walks away. The party follows her, now knowing for sure that they can place their trust in her.
Imperial Soldier 2: Gh... *Panting* You’re an agent, aren’t you? This won’t make you any money...
Milleore: I just forgot to invoice you. You know, for expenses for that battle in town.
Imperial Soldier 2: Grr... Expenses...? What, it takes that much money to get you to work...?
Milleore: I’ve already received my reward in advance... But I invoice the payment for my arrows separately.
Imperial Soldier 2: Seriously...? Costs for arrows is like chump change... You’re crazy.
Milleore: What, so the Imperial Army doesn’t teach you the worth of chump change?
Milleore: Didn’t you know? Trust between client and agent can be built on.
Imperial Soldier 2: Why the hell would I know? You’re just crazy...
Lyria: Uh... Um... Milly...?
Katalina: Did you really come here just to get paid for your arrows?
Milleore: We don’t have time to chat about that now. Let’s get out of here.
Katalina: Thank you, Lady Milleore. You really saved us. All that danger you had to go through...
Lyria: Thank you. I can’t even imagine... if anything had happened to (Captain) or Katalina, I...
Milleore: It’s because I knew I could win. I knew I could get in there without anyone noticing.
Milleore: And no one can escape from a crossbow rapidfire in a tight space like those castle hallways. I could take on as many people as I needed to.
Milleore: Didn’t I say before? As long as the weapon and the terrain match, I can fight.
Milleore: I mean, if you had been caught somewhere else, then I wouldn’t have gone out of my way to ask you for my arrow costs. So just remember that.
Katalina: Yeah. I’ll keep that in mind.
Milleore: And also... I had to give this to Lyria.
Lyria: Huh? These are... the sweets at that cake shop...
Milleore: The imperial soldiers took away the ones you bought, right? So I got you something instead.
Milleore: I needed to give it some time so that the imperial soldiers would let their guard down. This was just something to do on the side.
Lyria: Aww! Thank you!
Milleore: All I did was fulfill my responsibilities. Since I was the one who introduced you to the shop.
Lyria: Hehe, I’m still really happy!
Milleore: I-it’s not to make you happy or anything. It was just... my responsibility, as an agent.
Katalina: Umm... Lady Milleore. I’ve been wanting to ask, but uh... Are you just being very shy?
Milleore: Let’s get going. We don’t have time to chat. We should leave the island as soon as we can.
Lyria: Hey! Milly! W-wait!
They rush after Milleore as she walks away as fast as she can. When the wind blew her hood a little, they saw that her ears were blushed.
Milleore will probably never reveal her honest emotions but from this day forth, everyone knew for sure that they could trust her.
