Until We Meet Again
After rescuing Ferry from the primal beast Celeste, (Captain) and Lyria invite her to join the crew. She refuses, saying she wants to wait for her sister's return, so Lyria suggests that they go find her sister together.
Ferry: You want me to join your crew?
Lyria: That's right! I'm sure it'll be more fun together!
Under the bright sky, (Captain) and company are trying to bring Ferry into the crew.
Lyria: I mean... it looks like there's no one left on this island, and you won't get lonely with us around!
Ferry: I see. It seems that I've caused you some unnecessary worry...
Lyria: Don't be silly! Right, (Captain)?
Choose: I want to travel with you, Ferry.
- I want to travel with you, Ferry.
- It'll be lonely going alone.
Ferry: You know, it sounds almost creepy when you put it that bluntly.Choose: It'll be lonely going alone.
Ferry: Trust me, I know that better than anyone here.Continue 1
Ferry: But while I do appreciate the sentiment, I'm staying right here on this island.
Lyria: But why?
Vyrn: Now, now, Lyria... If Ferry says she wants to stay, then that's that.
Ferry: I want to wait for my little sister here. I know she'll be back someday.
Lyria: But when?
Ferry: I dunno. Whenever, I guess... Thankfully I won't be getting any older.
Ferry: And I just know she'll be back. Even if it takes her whole life and then some...
Ferry: She'll return to this island, where our family sleeps. This island might be empty now, but this is our home.
Vyrn: Yeah, it seems like you're always talking about how worried you are about your sister.
Ferry: And that's why I won't leave until she gets back...
Lyria: But why don't we just go find her instead?
Lyria: You heard me! If you're worried, you should just go find her yourself!
Ferry: But I have no way of knowing where she is! I doubt she's still on the sanatorium island...
Lyria: Then you'll just have to look for her. And we can help!
Vyrn: I see! That might not be such a bad idea!
Vyrn: Of course we're not exactly good at finding people. But we can promise you won't be bored!
Ferry: You two... I'm not sure what to say...
Choose: I'm sure you'll see her again.
- I'm sure you'll see her again.
- We'll find her for you.
Ferry: There's no way you could know that.
Ferry: But it's strange... Hearing you say that makes me feel like I really will see her again.Choose: We'll find her for you.
Ferry: Oh yeah? I won't forget you said that!
Ferry: But I can't deny that your eyes are brimming with confidence, (Captain). Maybe I'll take a chance on you.Continue 2
Ferry: Anyway, I thank you. It looks like I'll be imposing on you and your ship for a while.
Lyria: Great! Let's get going then!
Ferry: But wait. Could you give me a second before that?
With that, Ferry turns toward the empty village and offers up a silent prayer.
Lyria: Um... What was that?
Ferry: Nothing important. I just told them I'd be back later.
Ferry: This is my home after all. My father and mother are sleeping here.
Lyria: In that case, when you get back, you and your sister can say "We're home!" together!
Ferry: Yeah, I'll be looking forward to that.
Ferry: That's the best funeral I can give them.
With a bright expression, Ferry leaves her home island with the crew.
Driven by a vow to her parents to return with her sister, Ferry faces the long journey ahead.
Scary, Scary Ghosts
The crew accepts a request from the Knickknack Shack to hunt down monsters and ghosts at a mansion. Ferry is shocked by Lyria's fear of ghosts as they explore the place.
Ferry: I'm a ghost and you want me to go ghost hunting? Is that some kind of sick joke?
Vyrn: I don't actually think the Knickknack Shack intended it that way...
The crew is on a mission from the Knickknack Shack to hunt monsters and ghosts lurking in an old mansion.
Vyrn: Check out all these holes. It definitely looks haunted here.
Ferry: No way. You saw my village, right? The only things living there were ghosts and zombies.
Ferry: We still feel the same as when we were alive. Ghosts worry about how their neighbors see them, so they don't leave holes in walls.
Ferry: And zombies have trouble walking around with holes in the floor too. No one would want to live here.
Vyrn: Nothing like a real ghost to make even the spookiest looking place seem like a sham.
Lyria: Ugh... G-ghosts aren't...
Ferry: Lyria, are you still afraid of ghosts?
Lyria: Of course I am! These are ghosts we're talking about!
Ferry: I see... So that's what you think.
Vyrn: Hm? What's wrong, Ferry? You don't look too happy...
Ferry: Just forget it.
Vyrn: Uh-oh! Here they are! Time to beat them down, (Captain)!
Scary, Scary Ghosts: Scene 2
Ferry is bummed out that she's just a ghost, but Lyria cheers her up by reminding her that she's still Ferry and that Lyria's not afraid of her.
Vyrn: Hey, what's going on with you? You seem to be fading.
Ferry: What do you care? You act like you've never seen a ghost become transparent.
Ferry: And I am a ghost... It's all pointless...
Vyrn: What's your problem? Lyria, say something to her!
Lyria: Eek! W-what is it? Did you see a ghost?
Vyrn: No! I don't know why, but Ferry's feeling down.
Ferry: I'm a ghost... and there's no changing that.
Lyria: Um... Ferry? Why are you being like this?
Ferry: What's that? You want to know if you can come closer? Lyria, you do know that I'm a ghost, right?
Ferry: And you're afraid of ghosts. That includes me...
Lyria: That's not true! There's nothing scary about you!
Ferry: But I'm a ghost.
Lyria: I guess so, but you're still Ferry. I could never be afraid of you.
Ferry: Oh... If you say so.
Vyrn: Hey, whatever the case, let's just finish this request! Right, (Captain)?
Scary, Scary Ghosts: Scene 3
(Captain) and company complete the request. When they go to the Knickknack Shack to report, Vyrn and Lyria ask Ferry about ghosts. But she tells them that she doesn't know everything about ghosts just because she is one.
(Captain) and company complete the request and go back to the Knickknack Shack to report.
Vyrn: You know, Lyria, for all your talk of ghosts, you're a bit of a monster yourself.
Lyria: Hey! That's a totally different thing!
Lyria: Besides, I'm sure there are monsters that are afraid of ghosts! Right, Ferry?
Vyrn: Oh? Is that how it is, Ferry?
Ferry: Why are you asking me?
Ferry: It's not like I know everything there is to know about ghosts!
"Just because I have experience in something doesn't mean I'm an expert on it. I don't want people thinking I know everything..."
Ferry later says this to (Captain) in secret.
Backstage before their performance, Ferry, Drang and Sierokarte reflect on everything that has brought them to this moment. They recall the day Ferry asked for Sierokarte's help contacting her sister. Moved by Ferry's request, Sierokarte had suggested writing a song. When Drang was caught eavesdropping, the three of them then formed a band together.
Behind the stage where most of the fans have gathered, three people quietly catch their breath.
Ferry: This is it… We've made it, the three of us.
Sierokarte: Yeah, that's right. The day we started all this feels like so long ago, but at the same time, it's like it was only yesterday.
Drang: We've worked so hard for it… But this is only the beginning! Right, Ferry?
Ferry: Yeah. This is where it all begins.
Ferry: I want our music to reach all the way across the skies, and then someday, wherever she is, she'll hear it.
Ferry: Hey, Sierokarte, there's something I want to talk to you about.
Ferry: Hm? Sierokarte? She must be out.
Sierokarte: Oh, if it isn't Ferry. How may I help you today?
Ferry: Whoa! Y-you're here… You could at least have said something.
Sierokarte: Oops, sorry. I dug up something interesting and started daydreaming. Here I am in the shop, hardly working… Oh!
Sierokarte: Hardly working instead of working hard… Hahaha.
Ferry: Honestly, you'll start losing customers if you don't work hard.
Sierokarte: Yeah, and if I lose too many customers because I'm not working hard, then I'll be… hardly working!
Ferry: Er, yeah, I get it. So, moving on…
Sierokarte: If I'm not working hard, then I'm hardly working…
Sierokarte: A-anyway, Ferry, what can I do for you today?
Ferry: Oh, well, actually I wanted to send a letter.
Ferry takes out the letter and shows it to Sierokarte.
Sierokarte: OK, I see. And the address is…
Sierokarte: Huh? There's no address on it.
Ferry: I was afraid this might happen. I can't send it without an address, can I?
Sierokarte: Well, I won't say you can't send it, but…
Sierokarte: The chances of it getting there without one are slim. Do you mind if I ask what sort of letter it is?
Ferry: It's… well, it's for my little sister.
Sierokarte: Your little sister, huh?
Ferry: It's just… I don't know where she is right now.
Ferry: But I really want to write to her! I want to tell her all about the adventures I've had with (Captain) and the others.
Ferry: The last time I saw her was decades ago, when I really was the age I still look now.
Ferry: Since then, we had that epidemic in the village, and then Celeste appeared…
Sierokarte: Right, the island you lived on was shrouded in mist for a long time, wasn't it?
Ferry: Yes, and she couldn't have known what was happening there.
Ferry: When she thinks of me, of our parents, she can only remember how we were back then, as if time froze in place when she left.
Ferry: She probably thinks that we're all dead…
Ferry: If she gets a letter from me after all this time, she might just think it's a cruel joke, or get creeped out…
Ferry: But… but I don't care! I really want to contact her.
Ferry: I want her to know that there's nothing to worry about. And that our parents are resting peacefully now.
Ferry: I want to tell her that it's all over, that time has started moving forward for me again.
Ferry: I want to tell her all about it.
The envelope creases in Ferry's hand as she grips it, overcome with emotion.
Sierokarte: Hmm… I see. That's quite the letter you have there.
Ferry: I really want to get some kind of message to her.
Sierokarte: Well then, we'll just have to get it to her. It might take some time, but nothing is impossible for Siero's Knickknack Shack!
Ferry: Really? Thank you so much.
Sierokarte: Still, it won't be easy. We'll have to send it by… unconventional means.
Ferry: Unconventional means? I-I'm not looking to do anything fancy…
Sierokarte: Not just unconventional, it needs to be fast as well. You want your sister to get it soon, right?
Ferry: Is that even possible?
Sierokarte: Oh, there's a way! So, Ferry…
Sierokarte: How about starting a band?
Ferry: A-a band?
Sierokarte: That's right! Performing in front of a crowd of people, singing your heart out…
Sierokarte: That way, you can get your message out there for everyone to hear.
Sierokarte: As you get more popular, your sister is sure to hear it.
Ferry: Oh, I get see! Still, how am I supposed to start a band?
Sierokarte: Don't you worry about that. Siero's Knickknack Shack is a full-service firm! I'll support you through every aspect of the process.
Ferry: Really? Thanks, Sierokarte. I suppose the next thing to do is figure out who else would be a good fit for the band.
Sierokarte: You leave that to me!
Ferry: You have someone in mind?
Sierokarte: Well, actually, this time I'm going to pitch in and help you out myself.
Sierokarte: I used to dabble in music a little, you see.
Sierokarte: And as I listened to your story, I could really feel how important it was for you to get your message to your sister.
Sierokarte: I had a flash of inspiration, and it took me right back to my days as a musician.
Sierokarte: I couldn't let it go, and in the end, I decided to just cut my losses and help you out.
Sierokarte: Honestly, it's embarrassing for me as a shop keeper. I guess it shows how inexperienced I still am.
Ferry: You know, it's a big world out there, and I haven't seen much of it.
Ferry: But as far as I'm concerned, you're the perfect shop keeper, Sierokarte.
Sierokarte: Hee hee. I'm happy you feel that way.
Sierokarte: Well, now you have your second member.
Ferry: Hmm… How many people do you need for a band anyway?
Sierokarte: Well, I don't think there's any set amount.
Sierokarte: Still, I think we could do with one more, don't you think?
Sierokarte: For instance, the person hiding behind that pillar over there!
Sierokarte: You can't fool these eyes, so how about you come on out?
Drang: Nothing gets by you, Sierokarte…
Ferry: Huh? What are you doing here?
Drang: Ha ha… W-what indeed? I, er, sort of wound up here without thinking.
Sierokarte: Ferry caught your eye, and you just couldn't help yourself?
Drang: H-hey, come on, that's not what I meant… You do love to tease people, Sierokarte.
Ferry: Oh, while you're here… You know how you gave me my current name?
Ferry: I've been meaning to thank you. It's strange, but… I really have grown to like the name.
Drang: Well of course. It's a nickname my granny gave you…
Ferry: Huh? Wait, what did you just say?
Drang: Aaaanyway! What's all this talk of music I overheard?
Ferry: Hm? Oh, this might sound a bit strange, but…
Ferry: You named me, so you're kind of like my godfather, right? I need your help with something. I want to sing for my sister.
Drang: Er, well, I'm not sure how I feel about you calling me that.
Drang: But if you're putting a band together, then I can definitely help! I am a man of many talents, after all.
Ferry: Haha… Well, thanks. That really helps.
Sierokarte: OK, now the three of us have lots of preparation to do!
Ferry: Thank you, Sierokarte.
Ferry: Well, if we're going to do this, then let's do it right. We'll write a song so good that everybody will love it.
Drang: Still, I had no idea you couldn't play any instruments, Ferry. It was a bit of a shock.
Ferry: Um, well… I did kind of practice the piano when I was little.
Ferry: But when everyone else passed on, the thought of being a ghost playing a piano in a haunted house was just too creepy…
Sierokarte: The real shock was finding out how much you know about music, Drang.
Sierokarte: And you even tutored Ferry without any help.
Sierokarte: You must have spent a long time studying music.
Drang: Ah, well… That's really just because of the house I grew up in, you see.
Sierokarte: Hmm… The house you grew up in, huh?
Ferry reaches out suddenly, and pats Drang on the head.
Ferry: Hmm… You're taller than I expected.
Drang: W-what are you doing, Ferry?
Ferry: I'm not going to ask why, but you looked unhappy there for a moment.
Ferry: I used to comfort my sister by patting her on the head, and I thought maybe it would work on you, too.
Drang: Oh, really? Right, I get it, just like…
Drang: (My granny used to do the same thing… She must have learned it from Ferry.)
Ferry: …Huh? What are you making that face for?
Drang: Ah… Ha ha ha. It's a secret!
Drang: OK, it's time to get started. We can't keep our fans waiting any longer, can we?
Sierokarte: That's right! Ferry, you ready to go?
Ferry: Oh, right, of course. In fact, I'm the one who can't wait.
Ferry: I'm taking the first step toward contacting my sister.
Ferry: So let's make this the best show we can. Let's send this song far across the sky, to wherever she is now.
The three of them take a deep breath, and walk out to face the crowd of waiting fans.
They send their precious message out on the words of their song, "Path Across the Sky".
