Encountering the Eternals III
Niyon appears and asks (Captain) to perform with her after the Nine-Realm Harp is awakened. (Captain) agrees, but remains surprised that such a reserved and quiet person could have such intensity within her.
The crew rests at a local canteen.
(Captain) strums the Nine-Realm Harp, an instrument that Niyon called a revenant weapon.
Vyrn: Ooh! Plucking that bad boy's strings again?
Lyria: Hee hee... (Captain) just loves the sound of the Nine-Realm Harp!
Niyon: Indeed. It looks like the Nine-Realm Harp has taken a liking to (Captain) as well. It may just awaken soon.
Vyrn: Whoa! Don't scare me like that!
Vyrn: N-no worries...
Lyria: Ahaha... You can surprise Vyrn as much as you want, but he won't say anything mean.
Niyon: Mmm. I know.
Vyrn: What brings you to a place like this, Harp Girl?
Niyon: Sierokarte told me you were here.
Vyrn: Yeah? Do you need somethin' from us?
Vyrn: C-could you at least say something?
Niyon: The memory that flows between you and your friends is unforgettable.
Niyon: It seems I've taken a liking to you. The melody I heard that fateful day still lingers.
Niyon: This might be a bit forward, but... I'd like to hear more of it. Somewhere quieter.
Lyria: Ehehe... Are you saying you want to be friends with us?
Niyon: Maybe. But not yet. Later...
Niyon: I think my tune will match yours better after you awaken your revenant weapon.
Lyria: Our revenant weapon? Oh, you mean the Nine-Realm Harp?
Niyon: Yes. It's part of a group of ten legendary weapons created in eons past, possibly even before the War.
Niyon: That moldering instrument seeks to return to its former glory. To sing with you, (Captain).
Niyon: And as much as that weapon loves you, it may just be possible.
Niyon: Hey, (Captain). After you awaken the Nine-Realm Harp, shall we play together?
Niyon stares squarely at (Captain) as she says this.
(Captain) reflexively agrees to the request, the strangely charged atmosphere cutting like a knife in a way that seems surprisingly at odds with Niyon's nonplussed behavior.
Lyria: Hee hee... What a wonderful promise!
Niyon: The melody that flows between you is incredibly beautiful.
Niyon: See you next time.
Lyria: Heheh... Siero said Niyon was shy, but she really says what she means!
Vyrn: She sure does. Seems like she might've warmed up to us a bit too.
Lyria: That's right! She said she's taken a liking to you, (Captain)!
The supposedly reserved Niyon shocks (Captain) with her flash of intensity, an experience that will linger with the captain for quite some time.
