Sialeeds: Finally home. I'm really
not sure how to feel about this, thought, after all
we've been through...
Sialeeds: Lyon, you must feel like your burden's
been lifted a little, huh?
Lyon: But, Lady
Sialeeds... I've never once thought being Prince's
bodyguard was any kind of burden! Whether in the
Imperial Capital, or away. I'll always gladly do
whatever it takes to protect the prince!
Being a bodyguard is different from baby-sitting, you
know. Make sure you don't overprotect him.
I'm not "baby-sitting" anyone. Georg! And even if I was,
so long as the Prince is safe, that's all the matter!
Sialeeds: Heh, heh! Isn't my nephew a lucky boy,
Georg: Heh! Sure is!
Lyon: When we get
back to Sol-Falena, you'd better watch how you talk. Be
polite and use the proper forms of address, okay?
Sialeeds: You know, you are ever so right, Lyon!
George may have forgotten, but I am the younger sister
of our glorious Queen. One's language must always
reflect one's social standing. Wouldn't you agree, Sir
Georg Prime, of the Queen's Knight?
Sialeeds: Hmph! How dare you
adress royalty that way!
Lyon: ...Well, that's
the Georg we all know and love, so he can get away with
it when it's just the three of us. But if Her Majesty
hear a Queen's Knight addressing the Prince improperly,
there'll be trouble, Georg. And think of Ferid, too!
After all, he's the one who recommended you to the
Queen's Knights in the first place...
Hmph!, don't worry. I'm used to court service, you know.
I can take care of myself. But, Jeez, lighten up! I
thought the Queendom of Falena had more of a laid-back
reputation than this!
Sialeeds: Considering the
fact that they let someone like you become a knight, I
think it's laid-back enough! But even I'm afraid of my
own sister right now. We really can't afford to make
Ashtat mad! Look sharp now, guys. We're about to arrive.
Captain: All hands, prepare to dock!
Georg: I haven't been in this country for too
long, so correct me if I'm wrong... But isn't this kind
of a pathetic welcome for the Queen's sister and the
Sialeeds: Yeah, well, what else can we
expect? In Falena, male royalty aren't in the line to
the throne, so they aren't very important. And neither
am I, apparently.
Guard : His Royal Highness
Prince Freyjadour and Lady Sialeeds have returned!
Envoy : Prince Freyjadour! Lady Sialeeds!
Welcome home! So, back from Lordlake! You must be
exhausted. How was your trip?
Georg : Don't even
Sialeeds : Ugh! I just want to pretend it
Envoy : Pardon?
Just... Never mind!
Envoy : I...I see...Ahem! In
any case. Queen Arshtat is waiting. Please. If you
would, make your way to the Sun Palace...
Patrol Guard : His Royal Highness the Prince and
Her Royal Highness Sialeeds have returned!
: Ah! Freyjadour! You're back! Ha ha! Mmm! You're
looking well, my boy!
[H-Hey, that hurts, Dad!]
Ferid : What,
this? This is nothing, my boy! Ha ha ha ha ha!
[Please stop, Father!]
Ferid : What's
the matter, son? Am I embarrassing you? Just a little
show of affection between father and son! It's no big
thing. Ha ha ha ha ha!
Uh, Your Majesty? I think perhaps you'd better stop
before you crush him!
Ferid : Ah, Sialeeds! I'm
glad to see you looking well, too! Georg, Lyon, thank
you for seeing the Prince home safely.
Yes, of course, sire!
Georg : Your Majesty
Commander of the Queen's Knights, Georg Prime returning
to post, sire.
Ferid : Georg, what in the
world's gotten into YOU...?
Georg : Eh, I dunno.
I was told to "mind my manners."
Ferid : Ha ha
ha ha ha! You never were one to listen to other people's
advice, so why start now? But on second though, thought,
a little bit of prudence might be in order while you're
back in the Imperial Capital. More than a few nobles
aren't very happy with you, being a newcomer and all.
Georg : All right. I'll try to watch it.
Wouldn't want to get you in trouble. Your Majesty.
Ferid : Ha ha ha! Thanks, Georg, but I don't
think you will have to worry to much about that!
Zahhak : Uh, pardon me. Your Commandership.
Ferid : Hmm? Ah, yes. You're
right. Your mother - - I mean, Her Majesty is waiting
for you. You should hurry along and see her now.
Lyon : But. Your Majesty... We, uh...
Ferid : Sorry, now's not the time. I know what
you've all seen but there's nothing I can do about it
right now. Our first priority is to see Her Majesty.
Galleon : His Royal Highness the Prince and Her
Royal Highness Sialeeds have returned!
Arshtat : Ah, I've
been waiting for you, Freyjadour! Don't be shy now! Come
closer. Let me get a good look at you!
[I'm back, Mother]
: Oh, my son... I've been so worried. I can't tell you
how relieved I am that you're back and safe!
[Your Majesty, I have returned!]
: Oh, my! Such formality! You can call me "Mother" you
know. But then again, it does indeed make me very proud
to hear you speak so gallantly! ===
: Sialeeds, thank you for all you've done. I wasn't
quite so worried about the Prince, knowing that you
would be with him.
Sialeeds : No need to thank
me. I love my nephew, too, you know.
Ah ha ha... And thank you, too, Georg I'm grateful that
you took on this task hardly worthy of your talents.
Georg : No thanks necessary, Majesty. Protecting
the royal family is my sworn duty as one ofe the Queen's
Arshtat : And you, Lyon
Arshtat : You're doing a fine job as the
prince's bodyguard. Well done. I'm sure the day will
soon come when you'll be promoted to a full-fledged
Lyon : But, Your Majesty! I
already consider it a great honor, one I hardly deserve.
Just to be allowed to be His Royal Highness' bodyguard!
Arshtat : Ah ha ha... It is such a great relief
to me to know that the Prince is in such good hands.
Please continue to take good care of him.
Yes, Your Majesty!
Arshtat : Now, then. Please
report on your visit to Lordlake. What's the matter?
Simply tell me what you witnessed there.
