Niime: Hm... Don't even have the time to talk, eh? You're a rude one, and you don't know how to respect your elders. But you seem to be serious about learning dark magic. Boy, why do you seek the power of darkness?
Raigh: ...It's not like I have some grandiose reason. I use dark magic for myself. I want to protect those I hold dear, and destroy all those who oppose me. That's the power I seek.
Niime: The power you're trying to obtain... It's not to be taken lightly. It can tilt the planet if misused.
Raigh: Hmph...so? I'll blow up a planet or two any day.
Niime: ...I see. Well said, boy. Now come...come into the depths of darkness... Of course, you're going to have to study that book first.
Raigh: ...Chad. Who said you could come talk to me?
Chad: Dammit, I wouldn't if I didn't need to.
Raigh: What do you want?
Chad: Roy... I mean Master Roy wants to see us.
Raigh: Like I care.
Chad: Y-You idiot! Don't say such things in such a loud voice! That Merlinus guy'll be after us again!
Raigh: What, are you afraid that old geezer?
Chad: I sure am. He and Master Roy are both nobles.
Raigh: Haha, so little boy Chad'll go bowing down to power?
Chad: ...Laugh while you can. But let me say this. If we go against nobility, we can't complain no matter what happens to us. Master Roy doesn't seem to be that kind of a person, but I don't know about the others.
Chad: I don't want to watch someone I know get beat up right in front of me. You've got quite a mouth, but if you don't want to get killed, use it somewhere else. ...I'm going. You better come, too.
Chad: ! I've got no choice, all right? I can't use magic like you. All I can do for this army is to pick locks and go gather information...
Raigh: Well, it's pretty good if you can do that much.
Raigh: You know, the other day when we had go see that Roy person... He said that he appreciated the work of us, who are close to his age. But you were constantly bowing down and saying that you never did anything important.
Raigh: You're doing something that only you can do. Then why don't you be proud of it? You look like an idiot, always putting yourself down like that.
Chad: ...Uh, are you trying to cheer me up?
Raigh: D-Don't be ridiculous! There would be no reason in hell that I would be trying to cheer you up!
Chad: Yeah, I thought so. Good, you had me scared for a sec there.
Raigh: ...I can hear you, you don't have to shout like that. ...What do you want?
Lugh: Here. That's your share.
Raigh: ? What are these?
Lugh: Baked tarts, as you can see. The meal delivery man gave me some extra ones. They look good, don't they?
Raigh: ...Sweets... They're hard to get nowadays. You should savor them and eat them for yourself.
Lugh: They won't be good even if I eat them alone. So let's eat them together later today. Anyway, I'll be going now. Oh, one more thing. You should at least respond when you're spoken to! With me it's fine, but you shouldn't act like that with strangers. People are going misjudge you for being antisocial or something.
Raigh: Misjudge, huh? ...Yeah, whatever. My good ol' brother seems to be as naive as ever.
Lugh: No, I was just wondering if you're doing all right.
Raigh: What do you mean, all right?
Lugh: I was worried if you were still here or not. You know...the first time you left, you just left a note and suddenly disappeared. I was worried that you might just walk off again without saying anything...
Lugh: Your note said, 'I want to train my Dark magic skills on my own.' Was I...in the way? You didn't want me around...?
Raigh: N-No, that's not the case... I was planning on going back home once I gained enough power as a Shaman.
Lugh: Raigh! I knew it! I knew you were going to return to pick up the little ones!
Raigh: Huh? No, I never...
Lugh: I'm so relieved! You haven't changed at all, you're still the kind hearted Raigh that I know. I'll go pray! I'm going to thank God for letting me see you again!
Lugh runs off*
Raigh: Um...hello? ...Sigh... Why is he like that?
