Chad: Thanks for your help the other day. That traveler's now fully recovered, and he said that he was really grateful to you.
Elen: I just did what I should have.
Chad: What? No way! I never would have dreamed that there would be someone who would use an expensive healing staff on a commoner.
Chad: Only those of the Elimine Church would treat commoners with healing staves. And even then, it would only be if the wound were severe enough to kill the victim or something.
Chad: Yeah. At least it was like that in the countryside of Lycia, where I used to live. But we have our own ways of treating wounds too, so most people know about medicinal herbs and stuff. ...We were all doing our best to survive until Bern invaded.
Chad: Wha-? S-Sorry! I didn't mean to make you sad...
Elen: No...it's not your fault. It's just that...my... My country... started the war...
Elen: It's my country that started the war. So I understand...if you have hostility toward me, a native of Bern...
Elen: But why? Why don't I see hate in your eyes, but sadness?
Elen: Can you...tell me about it? I want to take at least some of the burden off of your heart...
Chad: ...... ...Father...the Father of our orphanage...he died. Bern's soldiers...they came one day. We had a little garden where we grew food. The soldiers...they trampled on it with their horses because... They said that it was in the way of their path. It was a tiny garden with really nothing more than roots, but...
Elen: So...Father tried to protect the garden?
Chad: Yeah... Even if all we had were roots...they were still food to us.
Elen: Chad, you can cry... If you're sad, you have to let it out.
Chad: ...I was the oldest of the orphans, so I couldn't be crying. The little kids, and my best friend Lugh... They were in shock after seeing Father get killed right in front of their eyes. It was my job to take care of them. I don't want to lose family any more... That's why I chose to fight.
Elen: You're strong.
Chad: My hatred towards Bern is my strength... The drive to avenge Father and to protect the other orphans... That was my purpose in life. I never had any hesitation at all!
Elen: Do you hesitate now?
Chad: ...To me, the people of Bern are all bastards. They're only thinking about themselves, and they don't give a damn about what happens to others as long as they get their profit! ...Or so I thought, until I met you.
Elen: Chad... I'm on your side. I, as an individual, and not as a person of Bern... I want to help you. Do you still hate me now...?
Chad: ...I don't know.
Elen: Then I'll stay at your side, Chad. I can't replace Father... But I can at least be someone there for you when you need to talk.
Elen: Are you Father Saul? I am Elen, a Sister of the Elimine Church in Bern. I am pleased to make your acquaintance.
Saul: Dear God...
Elen: Uh...Father Saul?
Saul: I must be blessed to be able to meet such a beautiful lady. And you are a follower of the Elimine Church as well! This must surely be fate. Please, let us meet this evening and we shall discuss the love of God in great depth.
Elen: Yes, I would love to. Shall we set up a time now? Any time would work for me...
Saul: ...... Are you serious?
Elen: You are going to talk about God's love, are you not? Why would I even think of refusing?
Saul: But... If you accept so easily, there's no...satisfaction.
Saul: Oh! Please, never mind. But Elen, are you sure? I am actually rather loose around women, and I may do something undesirable to you...
Elen: No, that will not happen. You are a priest. You will surely not do anything like that.
Elen: Good day, Father Saul. It is good to see you safe.
Saul: ...You are so tense, so uptight! No, that will not do. You must relax your muscles a little.
Elen: ...Do you think so?
Saul: Yes. Those serving God must be more laid-back and be able to enjoy the finer things in life, like I am.
Elen: Yes... But...
Saul: I once knew a lady just like you. ...Well, she rejected me, but... Anyway, if you really wish to serve God, then you will see many, many things in this journey. Many things... Things that you would not believe.
Saul: Life is all about experience. Now then, shall we get back to our little evening talk? This evening would be great.
Elen: Yes, I would love to hear you.
Elen: Then I shall invite the others as well.
Saul: ...Excuse me? The others?
Elen: Yes. If you're going to preach, then it would be that much better if there were more people listening. I'm sure Master Roy, Merlinus, and also Princess Guinevere would be interested. I shall go ask them if they have any plans tonight.
Zeiss: They're the same as the ones you were growing back in Bern, right?
Zeiss: I saw a bunch of them growing on the mountaintop the other day, so I picked a few because I thought you would like them...
Zeiss: Elen? What's wrong? Wait, are these the wrong flowers?
Elen: Why are you always so...good to me...?
Zeiss: Eh? Ah, er, well... Well, we come from the same town, and, uh... I don't know, it's just that I can't...leave you alone, you know? I want to stay by your side and protect you... Would that...not be all right?
Elen: No, I'm very glad... But I must stay by Princess Guinevere's side...
Zeiss: I know. I'm also a knight of Bern, so I'll protect the Princess with all my strength. So let's defend the Princess, and someday we can return to Bern together!
