With Lyria's suggestion, (Captain)'s party starts heading toward the Knickknack Shack.

Norcel: I was just thinkin', I'm glad to have such kind people as my friends.
Vyrn: Wha? F-Flattery won't get you anywhere, you know?
Lyria: Hehe, are you blushing, Vyrn?
Norcel: It ain't flat'ry. I really think y'all are good people.
Norcel: When I'm travelin' wit' you guys, I'm reminded of the ol' stories of my ancestors.
Norcel: My mum's always happy to read my letters 'bout our adventures.
Vyrn: Hehe, glad to hear that!
Norcel: And now, mum can get her medicine so she's feelin' a lot better...
Norcel: The medicine lady told her that she'll be cured if we find a doctor, too.
Lyria: Really? I'm happy to hear that! Let's find a good doctor for her!
Norcel: Thanks, Lyria. And (Captain)... I don't know to thank ya guys...
Vyrn: Good for you, Norcel! But you should save the tears for after your mom gets better!
Norcel: Yeah! First, I gotta write send out a letter for mum!

Without any missions to work on, (Captain)'s party decides to leave the island after a good night's rest.
(Captain) and company rent a room at an inn and decide to have dinner at the dining hall downstairs.
Norcel: I'm still not used to eatin' other people's cooking like this. There weren't any places like this in my village.
Vyrn: Hm... Is it even smaller than the village of Zinkenstill?
Norcel: Yeah. It snows all year and we don't really get no visitors.
Norcel: It must be way different in big cities where there are kings and princesses.
Lyria: I see... It must be hard dealing with snow all year long. Oh, but maybe you'll be okay with your magic book?
Norcel: Yeah, this book is mighty useful. I'm grateful to my ancestors for bringing it back.
Lyria: Hm? I didn't know it had a history like that... That book must be very important to you then!
Norcel: Yeah. I gotta be thankful to my mum for giving it to me.
Vyrn: A book that lets the reader cast magic... That's quite a book you've got there.
Lyria: It is. I wonder who wrote it?
???: ... ...
Norcel: But I get tired whenever I read it, and I get real dizzy if I use it too much.
Norcel: And it's a bit heavy, too... Makes me trip a lot.
Vyrn: Hm, so it has its downsides too.
(Captain) and company enjoy their dinner, then decide to rest in the room they rented. That night...
Norcel: Aaahhh?! W-What're ya doin?!
???: Agh! This book is too damn heavy to carry!
Vyrn: What's going on?! Are you alright, Norcel?
Norcel: Aiieee! A thief j-just tried to steal my book!
Vyrn: Say what?! Where is he?!
Norcel: He went out the window right before I turned the light's on!
Vyrn: He won't get away with this! Let's go get him, (Captain)!
Agony of the Magic Tome: Scene 3
After capturing the thief, (Captain) and company hand him over to the guards. Norcel stares at his book and begins wondering if his ancestors had stolen it. In response, Lyria suggests that they look into the magical book's origin. Norcel agrees to her suggestion and makes it his new goal for his journey.
(Captain) and company capture the thief and hand him over to the guards.
Lyria: Hmm... I wonder why he went after your book... It just looks like an ordinary book on the outside.
Vyrn: He might have been listening in on our conversation at the dining hall... We should have been more careful!
Lyria: Um... Are you alright, Norcel? You've been staring off into the distance... Did the thief scare you?
Norcel: Oh... Well that too, but... I've been thinkin' about this book.
Norcel: My ancestors brought it back from... somewhere... But I thought, what if it was stolen?
Norcel: Then I would feel bad for the owner...
Vyrn: But no one ever came to claim it, right? It should be okay then.
Norcel: Maybe... But... if the real owner is somewhere out there...
Lyria: Umm... Then why don't we find out who wrote that book? Maybe the author gave it to your ancestor.
Lyria: We can look into it while we search for a doctor. How does that sound?
Norcel: Yeah. ! It sure beats sittin' here wonderin' about it.
Norcel: I can go apologize to the author if it's stolen, and I can go say thanks if it's a gift!
Lyria: Yeah! Sounds good!
With the prospects for his mother's cure looking brighter, Norcel finds a new goal for his journey.
The journey with his magical book still seems to have a long way ahead.
