Yaia's Santa Now!
When Yaia wishes to become Santa Claus, the real man in red visits to make her dream a reality. Hoping to bring joy to her ailing dad, Yaia puts on a Santa costume stitched together by his North Pole magic. She then starts thinking of what gift to deliver to her father.
While returning from an assignment, the party met Yaia, a young girl who looks after her ailing father.
Her father's rare illness can supposedly be cured by a miracle herb that grows in the habitat of a primal beast.
Yaia: Please take me with you!
Yaia: Um... Dad here is sick, but there's this plant that can cure him.
Yaia: Please! Please! Pretty please! I want to find the plant!
In search of the plant and the rare herb...
Yaia began traveling with the crew.
One peaceful afternoon Yaia is sitting on the deck of the Grandcypher by herself reading a book.
Vyrn: Huh, how about that—you're reading all alone. What sort of book you got there?
Yaia: It's a story about Santa.
Yaia grins at (Captain) and the others, then holds the book up.
Yaia: Hey, Big Brother. How can I send a letter to Santa?
- A letter to Santa?
Lyria: W-where did that question come from?
Yaia: In this book it said you can write a letter of your wishes and send it to Santa!
Yaia: So that's what I want to do!
Yaia: But... I don't know how to send a letter.
Yaia: So what should I do?
Lyria: Heehee, Yaia, all you need to do is write a letter to Santa. You don't have to send it out.
Vyrn: Right. Just put your wish on paper and leave it by your pillowside. Santa will figure out the rest.
Yaia: Wow, really? Santa can do anything!
Lyria: Heehee, that's right. So what are you going to tell Santa you want?
Yaia: Teehee, that's a secret!
Yaia: I'm gonna go write a letter in my room! Whee!
Before Yaia can return to her room, the sound of bells begins ringing out in the distance.
Vyrn: Huh? What's that noise, and where's it comin' from?
Lyria: Uh, um, it's getting closer, isn't it?
The sound of laughter up above stuns the crew members, who quickly raise their eyes.
In the sky they see a large sleigh led by a team of reindeer.
It slowly alights on the deck of the Grandcypher.
???: Hohoho! Why, hello there. It's been a long time since I last saw you.
Vyrn: Huh? It's old Kris Kringle!
Yaia: Yay! Santa!
Vyrn: Hey, what are you doing here? The holidays are still a long way off.
Santa Claus: Hohoho, I know that.
Santa Claus: But you've all helped me out so much. I just had to stop by and say hello.
Santa Claus: And, besides, it seems there's a child who wants to meet me.
Santa Claus flashes a warm smile to Yaia.
Santa Claus: Hello, little Yaia! Do you have any wishes for me?
Yaia: U-uh, yeah, Santa... Do you wanna hear?
Santa Claus: You bet your buttons! You've been such a good girl, and you deserve it.
Yaia: Hurray! Thank you!
Santa Claus: Hohoho! Go ahead and say anything!
Yaia: Really, really? I wanna be you, Santa!
Vyrn: Huh? Santa? How come you wanna be Santa Claus?
Yaia: I'm always really happy when I get presents from Santa.
Yaia: So Dad would be really happy if he got a present from Santa too!
Yaia: But my book says he only gives any to kids...
Yaia: So I want to be another Santa, one who can give gifts to Dad!
Yaia: I know he'll be happy then!
Yaia: And then, and then... I wanna say to Dad, "I'm doing okay! And I'm trying really hard!"
Yaia: "So get well soon, Dad!"
Yaia: I know he has to be lonely without me...
Lyria: You mean you want to be Santa to give your father presents?
Yaia: Yeah! I love my dad!
Yaia: That's why I want him to be happy!
Santa Claus: Hohoho, you're such a nice child, Yaia.
(Captain) and Santa smile warmly at Yaia's thoughtful words to her father.
Santa Claus: All right. I'll make your wish come true!
Santa Claus: I'm Santa Claus... And it's my job to see that good children get what they want.
Yaia: Thank you, Santa!
Santa Claus: Hohoho! First of all, I'll give you this Santa suit!
The moment the jolly old man in red claps his hands together, Yaia is shrouded in light.
Yaia: Whoa! It's so bright!
(Captain) and the others are dazzled by the light.
When the light subsides and they open their eyes, Yaia is clothed in a Santa suit.
Yaia: Wow! I turned into Santa!
Vyrn: Hm? What's going on here?
Santa Claus: Hohoho! Just a bit of North Pole magic!
Vyrn: Sigh... Old Kris Kringle magic's as crazy as ever!
Santa Claus: Hohoho!
Yaia: Hey, look, Big Brother! I'm Santa now!
Yaia twirls around to show (Captain) and the others her suit.
Yaia: Teehee! How is it? Does it look pretty?
Choose: It's cute!
- It's cute!
- Didn't see the beard coming.
Yaia: Teehee! You think I look cute!
Yaia: Achoo!Choose: Didn't see the beard coming.
Yaia: Yeah! It's 'cause I'm Santa!
Yaia: But... Achoo!Continue 2
Yaia: Mm... This beard is itchy...
Santa Claus: Oh dear, that didn't occur to me. Would you like me to remove it for you?
Santa Claus claps his hands together once more, and the beard that had been on Yaia's face disappears.
Santa Claus: How's that? Your nose isn't itchy anymore, is it?
Yaia: Nope! It's okay!
Santa Claus: Hohoho! That's great to hear! Your father would worry if he heard you sneezing.
Santa Claus: The costume looks like a perfect fit at any rate. All that's left is for me to pick you up on the eve of the holiday!
Santa Claus: So just put together a present for your father in the meantime.
Yaia: You'll pick me up?
Santa Claus: Hohoho! Yes, I'll stop by your house with my sleigh.
Yaia: Huh! You mean I can ride on your sleigh?
Santa Claus: Of course! You're Santa Claus after all, Yaia.
Santa Claus: How else would Santa Claus deliver presents but in a sleigh?
Lyria: Teehee, isn't that nice, Yaia?
Vyrn: Hey, Yaia! What sorta present are you gonna make?
Yaia: Mmph... I haven't decided yet.
Lyria: Oh, really?
Yaia: Yeah... What sort of present do you think would make Dad happy?
Vyrn: I dunno. It's hard to say...
Santa Claus: Hohoho! There's still a while left till the holiday. Take your time to think it over.
Yaia: Okay! I'll figure out something that Dad will like!
Yaia: Hm... I wonder what would be good.
As Yaia starts thinking of what to give her father, her facial expression becomes focused.
(Captain) and crew can't help but smile when looking at her.
