That Person's Aura

Sahli Lao, who suffers from anxiety, is offered a special training session by the party. Since Lao states he always misses his target as soon as there is something at stake, the crew decide to introduce a penalty for failing. The added forfeit seems to have the desired effect of putting Sahli Lao under pressure, and he fires a stray arrow into a nearby thicket, disturbing a sleeping monster.

A small shadow stood beneath the night sky.
Sahli Lao, the Harvin archer plagued by stage fright stood with his cloak blowing around him.
Sahli Lao: (Sigh…)
Lyria: What's wrong, Mr. Lao?
Vyrn: Hey! What's up? What's with the glum face?
Sahli Lao: Mr. Vyrn, Miss Lyria… How close do you think I am to overcoming my weakness?
Lyria: Huh? Hmm… When we were fighting together just now, it didn't look like you were having any problems.
Lyria: In fact, I'd say everyone has come to rely on you, Mr. Lao.
Vyrn: That's right! With you picking off targets with your huge bow, our jobs get a lot easier!
Sahli Lao: Is that right? I must admit, when I'm fighting with all of you, I do feel quite calm.
Sahli Lao: However, it's rather shameful, but there haven't been many times I've been able to make that one perfect shot.
Vyrn: I see… So until you start making those shots, you think you're not a great archer?
Sahli Lao: That may indeed be so…
Vyrn: Well then! Sounds like you're a perfect candidate for some special training! Yep, it's decided!
Sahli Lao: Err… what?
Vyrn: Hehehe, we'll start right after breakfast! (Captain), you can help too!
The next day,
Sahli Lao: What in the world are we doing here?
Vyrn: Okay! This spot should be perfect, (Captain)!
As Vyrn was saying this, (Captain) and Lyria suddenly pulled out a quiver of arrows and some apples.
Sahli Lao: Y-you don't mean…?
Vyrn: Hehehe! These apples will be your targets!
Sahli Lao: Surely you don't mean…
Lyria: That's right! We'll use these to train! There are ten apples, and ten arrows. You can't miss even once, OK?
Sahli Lao: Heh… heh heh heh…
Vyrn: Huh? What's so amusing?
Sahli Lao: Oh, nothing. It's just… I'm truly grateful for your kindness.
Sahli Lao: However, if I'm aware it's only practice, there's no danger of my aim faltering.
Sahli Lao: Hmm… I've an idea… Maybe there should be some form of penalty for missing, then…
Vyrn: A penalty, huh? That would certainly increase the pressure for you…
Sahli Lao: Fine. Then, may I suggest that (Captain) choose a suitable one?
Lyria: Umm… Like going without dinner, or something?
Sahli Lao: Heh heh.I would accept an even more severe penalty than that. A soldier's word is their bond.
  1. How about getting a buzz cut?
  2. How about hitting on ten girls?

Choose: How about getting a buzz cut?
Sahli Lao: Huh?
Lyria: Hey, (Captain), what's a "buzz cut"?
Huh? A motivational haircut, you say?
Go to "Continue 1"

Choose: How about hitting on ten girls?
Sahli Lao: Wha??
Lyria: Hey, (Captain), what do you mean, 'hit on'
Continue 1
Vyrn: Ha ha! Good idea! Maybe it'll make you seem more like a tough guy, Lao!
Sahli Lao:
Vyrn: …huh?
Sahli Lao: …Uh, yes. You're right. Very well, then.
Sahli Lao: After all, if there isn't a degree of risk to it, it wouldn't be proper training…
Lyria: Um… Don't force yourself, OK?
Sahli Lao: It's fine! A soldier's word is their bond, remember! I shall give it my all.
Vyrn: Yeah, well said! Let's do it!
The objective of the training was to hit the ten apples positioned around the forest with the ten arrows.
Sahli Lao: Two more to go! All right, I can do this!
Lyria: Well done! You're so fast!
Vyrn: (Gulp) This is where it starts to get tough. You can do it, Lao!
Vyrn: Hey, he's shaking pretty bad…
Sahli Lao: Whoops!
The arrow grazed the side of the target, but luckily the force was still enough to split the apple cleanly in two.
Sahli Lao: …thank goodness! O-one more now!
Grouchy Monster: Grararaaahhh!
Sahli Lao: What?
The arrow Lao had just shot, having disappeared into a nearby thicket, seemed to have disturbed a sleeping creature.
Vyrn: Darn it! It was going so well, too. All right, practice is cancelled! Let's go, (Captain)!

That Person's Aura: Scene 2

After a speedy shadow saves Sahli Lao from a sticky predicament, he identifies the figure as his former colleague, Milleore.

Sahli Lao: Ugh… How pathetic! I suppose this really is all I amount to!
Lyria: Mr. Lao! Watch out!
Sahli Lao: Huh?
Milleore: ……!
Sahli Lao: Wha??
Moving faster than the eye could see, a small shadow took out the monster that had been approaching from Lao's blind spot.
Sahli Lao: M-Milly?
Vyrn: Hey guys! A lot of big ones are coming this way! Be careful!

That Person's Aura: Scene 3

Assured of the close presence of his former comrade, Milleore, Sahli Lao's courage is restored. His next shot then takes out not only the monsters, but the last training target too. In this way, he is able to both avoid the penalty and conquer his anxiety.

Vyrn: Darn it! Lao! There are a lot over there, too!
Sahli Lao: Oh! This arrow… there's no mistaking it.
Sahli Lao: It's her! She's nearby…
Knowing his former companion was nearby gave Lao courage. His trembling stopped, and he collected himself with a deep breath.
Sahli Lao: I should be all right now.
Sahli Lao: Here goes!
Closing his eyes, Lao let his arms drop loosely to his side, appearing almost defenseless.
Grouchy Monster: Rararaarrrrrr!
Sahli Lao: I see it! Just there!
Sahli Lao released an arrow with such power that the surrounding targets were instantly destroyed… including the final apple.
Sahli Lao: Milly…
Vyrn: Wow, awesome! That one really packed a punch!
Lyria: Whew… Thank goodness. Now Mr. Lao won't have to face the training penalty…
Vyrn: But you know, Lao… I still think it would improve your nerves in the long run if you tried something a little more aggressive?
Sahli Lao:
Vyrn: Hey, come on, not again! What's with the silence?
Sahli Lao: Well, I didn't think it was so important, so I didn't correct you before, but…
Vyrn: Oh?
Lyria: …yes?
Sahli Lao: …well, it doesn't really matter. It's a common mistake, so it's not worth worrying about, I suppose!
Milleore is a crew member

Through overcoming his great fear, Sahli Lao was able to maintain his pride as a soldier.
Milleore: Lao… I'm glad for you.
However, Vyrn couldn't help but feel that there was still something amiss…
Milleore not in crew

Through overcoming his great fear, Sahli Lao was able to maintain his pride as a soldier.
However, Vyrn couldn't help but feel that there was still something amiss…
