Thite: I have to tell you now. Why do you fight like that? Even the way you thrust your spear... Why do you just rely on brute strength to attack? It just makes it harder to evade a retaliation that way.
Alen: Well... I see you've been watching me carefully.
Thite: Huh? N-No...it's not that! It's just that... How could someone miss you if you're fighting like that? That's...all.
Thite: Anyway, what I wanted to say was, why don't you be more careful when you fight?
Alen: I understand what you're saying. But I can't pull back.
Thite: You're still saying that? But the way you fight...
Alen: In battle, the first ones to match blades with the enemy are us, the knights. The enemy will judge the entire army's strength by looking at how we fight. That's why I have to show them our power.
Alen: If I cringe even a little, that adds to the enemy's morale. If there is hesitation in my movement, it will have a bad effect on the whole army... That's why I have to charge. I have to keep pushing forward, for all of our sakes.
Thite: ...I see. ...I thought you were just an idiot who couldn't do anything but charge...
Alen: ? Did you say something?
Thite: ...No, nothing.
Alen: I'm sorry, but I have to fight like this. Still, your advice was useful, too. Give me some more when you get the chance.
Zelots: I was wondering... Juno's...your parents... What were they like?
Thite: Haven't you heard from Juno?
Zelots: No. All I know is that they were soldiers.
Thite: Yes, our mother was a Pegasus Knight. Our parents were killed together on the same battlefield when we were still young.
Thite: We had no other relatives to depend on... Juno became our mother, when she was only a teenager...
Zelots: I see.
Thite: While an ordinary girl of her age would be concerning herself with romance, Juno had to be our mother. But she never complained... She always looked after us with a smile on her face. That's why... That's why I always wanted Juno to find happiness.
Zelots: ...I have to thank you for helping us with the wedding. You set up the place and cooked for us... Oh, and Juno was very pleased with the wedding gift you and Shanna sent us.
Thite: Really...? I actually didn't want to send it... But Shanna won't listen once she's made up her mind.
Zelots: Hahaha... That was an interesting gift, though. But... I have to apologize to Juno about that wedding. If only I had more... If only our nation were wealthier, I could have given her a more proper and elegant wedding...
Thite: I doubt Juno feels that way at all. I'm very grateful to you, General Zelots. Your wedding... I had never seen Juno with such a happy face before. I want to thank you for what you've done for her.
Thite: You said that I wasn't taking advantage of my freedom...
Klein: Oh, that.
Thite: I wasn't quite sure what you meant, so I wanted to ask you.
Klein: Well, since you're free to do what you want, no one's forcing you to stay here. That's all.
Thite: !! ...Does that mean that you don't need my help?
Klein: No, that's not what I meant. Thite, you're a mercenary. Staying with this army isn't going to get you much income. So if you're just fighting alongside us out of guilt or a feeling of responsibility, I just wanted to let you know that you shouldn't feel compelled to stay.
Thite: Yes, you're right. Perhaps it is inconvenient to stay with this low-paying army. But I'm staying with you out of my own will. Please don't worry about it.
Klein: Oh, all right, then. I'm sorry if I've been a bother.
Klein: Thite, when this war ends, I could help you find an army that pays well.
Klein: Well, even though you said that you're fighting with us out of your own will, my being here is still one of the reasons that you stayed. I just thought that I should compensate by helping out with your future plans...
Thite: ...I can do that on my own. I appreciate your consideration, but please don't worry about it.
Thite: Or is my being here a hindrance to you?
Klein: N-No! Not at all!
Thite: Then why are you telling me things like that!
Klein: ...What's the matter, Thite? How come you're so upset...
Thite: Ever since the other day, all you've been talking about it getting me out of this army...away from you!
Klein: What? Well, I...
Thite: I chose to stay by your side because I love you! But you... You're so inconsiderate!
Klein: Um, well... I'm sorry. It's just that... I never thought that you felt that way about me.
Klein: So... ...... You know, Thite, you're to blame as well!
Klein: You keep calling me 'General Klein, General Klein,' like you want to keep your distance with me! That's why you make me think that you're simply tagging along out of responsibility!
Klein: No 'General' from now on. Just call me Klein, all right?
