Erinys
Annand! My sister! It really is you...

Annand
Oh, Erinys. I am so glad that we
have another chance to speak...

Although you look much the same as
when I saw you last, your eyes shine
with determination.

Yes...you have matured. I am so
happy, Erinys.


Erinys
Indeed I have! None will call me
"crybaby" anymore.

I have strengthened the pride I carry
in my heart as a pegasus knight of
Silesse. I hope to one day match you.

Of course, I still have a long way to
go... Oh, I swore never to cry again,
but the tears...they won't stop!

Sharena
To see two loving sisters reunited...
How wonderful! Your bond is so
strong.

Speaking of bonds, you two are
close—aren't you, Lex and Azelle?


Lex
Sure, but no need for a teary-eyed
reunion here. We were fighting side
by side just before we arrived.

Annand
The last thing I remember is falling
downward, toward Silesse... I could
feel the cold snow chill my skin.

After that, I have no memory. It was
as if I was drifting endlessly in water...


Erinys
Annand...

Lex
Seems some power wanted to see
you two reunited, to be sure. And
we're happy to help, Princess.

Annand
If I can wield this sword once more,
as a Hero, and support your people...
I would be glad to do so.

Erinys
If I may join my sister in battle, I
have no objections.

I will raise my lance for Askr.

Sharena
Thank you, all! We welcome you
and your aid!

ま、アスク王国でこうして再会できたのも
なにかの縁だってことだろう。
俺たちも力を貸すぜ、シャロン王女。

アスク王国のため、
この槍を捧げましょう。

みなさん、ありがとうございます…!
その力、頼りにさせてもらいますね!

Azelle
...

Lex
Something on your mind?

Let me guess. You're thinking about
Lady Edain again.


Azelle
I am, yes, but...not only about her.

I'm also thinking about Velthomer,
and the future of Grannvale
as a whole.

There is much to consider.


Lex
No matter how much you think about
Jugdral, it's not gonna do a lot of
good from here.

The crisis in Askr has to come first,
for now.


Azelle
I completely agree.

Lex
Then what's really bothering you?
Don't try to hide it. We've been
friends far too long for that.

Azelle
It's...about what Annand said.

Her last memory was the feeling
of cold snow. Remember?


Lex
Yeah. Sounded like she was falling
in battle.

Azelle
After our work in Askr is finished,
we Heroes are meant to return to
where we came from.

If that was the moment Annand was
summoned... If she was about to lose
her life... What happens to her?


Lex
Good question...

Azelle
I am going to have a word with Erinys
about this.

I think she and Annand may have
come to the same realization.

Alfonse
Hello, Erinys. Are you acclimating
well to life in Askr?

Erinys
I'd say so. I was...rather confused
at first, but I believe I've begun to
open my heart to it.

Prince Alfonse... There is something
I'd like to ask you, if I may.


Alfonse
No need to be so formal. Ask away.
I'll respond as best I can.

Erinys
When the Heroes have finished the
fight in Askr... In what condition
will they return home?

Alfonse
A difficult question. One to which
I lack a precise or detailed answer.

I have read, however, that the main
theory is they will be returned to the
time and place they came from.


Erinys
What of those who had already lost
their lives when summoned?
What will become of them?
Alfonse
I'm sorry, Erinys. I wish I could be of
more help, but...I simply don't know.

Erinys
I am the one who should apologize.
I did not mean to trouble you.

Even without a clear answer, I must
say I feel relieved merely for having
asked you.

We may never know the fate of one
who leaves this world under those
conditions, but...

So long as such individuals remain in
Askr, they can continue to live as
Heroes, can they not?


Alfonse
I see no reason why they could not...
Theoretically, at least...

Erinys
That means, as long as we stay here,
my sister and I can continue spending
time together.

Prince Alfonse, I know this is much
to ask... But would you allow me to
remain here with Annand?

Please—I never wish to be parted
from my sister again!


Annand
Erinys. I am moved beyond words
to hear you ask for this. Thank you.

Erinys
Annand...

Annand
But you have so much more to do.
As a Hero, it will be your duty
to return to Silesse one day.

Erinys
But Annand... If I were to return...
I would never see you again.

Annand
Listen to me, Erinys.

By rights, from the moment I fell,
we should not have had the chance
to meet again except in dreams.

For us to be reunited as we are now,
fighting side by side, is nothing short
of a miracle.

Our time together in Askr is an
extraordinary blessing.


Erinys
Annand, I...

Annand
You were summoned here to be a
Hero. You were called on for much
more than merely seeing your sister.

Therefore I would ask you to think
first of your duty, both to Askr and to
our home...to which you must return.


Azelle
I must agree with Annand.

Most Heroes summoned to Askr have
important tasks to accomplish in their
home worlds when all is done here.

When the fight for peace in Askr is
finished, all of us will have to face
our respective destinies.


Lex
I've got unfinished business there
as well. That's for certain.

Annand
So once we have won peace for Askr,
Erinys... I must ask you to return
to seize your destiny as well.

Your fight will not end here.


Erinys
I...understand. And I will do my duty.

When I do return, I will ensure your
legacy is remembered. And I will hold
you in my thoughts, always.


Annand
Thank you, Erinys. So long as you are
living in Silesse, I know my memory
there will endure.

Alfonse
Each generation of Heroes passes its
deeds and intentions on to the next.
That is the way of the world.

In a manner of speaking, that is how
history allows us to move forward
into the future.


Erinys
Yes. But while I remain here, I will
continue to fight alongside the great
pegasus knight Annand.

I will be your little sister for as long
as I am able, that I might grow into a
Hero worthy of inheriting your legacy.

Lex
So... Lord Arvis is with the Order
of Heroes now. I figured as much.

Azelle
Yes. Princess Sharena says his
strength has been a great help
to them.

Lex
I'm sure he's an extremely powerful
ally. It's not hard to figure out why
[Summoner] relies on him.

Azelle
Arvis has changed. We both know
the path he chose. And here he is—
a Hero!

Lex
I hate to bring this up, but sooner or
later you're going to have to talk to
him about leaving House Velthomer

Azelle
Yes. I left to join Lord Sigurd so I
could aid Lady Edain. I expect that
act does not sit well with him.

Arvis is my half brother, but he raised
me as if he were my father. I respect
him and I honor him. And yet...

I feel an indescribable unease when
I am near him. It borders on...fear.

But I cannot hide forever. I must meet
with him.


Lex
If you like, I could come with you.

Azelle
Lex, you are a good friend, but
I need to go alone. We must
speak brother to brother.

Azelle
It has been far too long, Brother.
I apologize for not visiting sooner.

Arvis
Azelle! So you have been summoned
to Askr as well. It is good to have you.

This nation is threatened by calamity.
Its people need all the strength we
can muster. I hope you are ready.


Azelle
I am. But, Brother, I need to know
something. You came from a time just
beyond the events I lived, correct?

Princess Sharena mentioned your
fight with Lord Sigurd had...ended.


Arvis
Yes. And it could be said that its
conclusion helped pave the way for
lasting peace across the continent.

Azelle
That is truly remarkable! I could
never aspire to something so bold.
I regret I could not aid you...

I must ask for your forgiveness. I let
my own desires get in the way of my
duties to House Velthomer.

I ran way—both from House
Velthomer and...from you.


Arvis
...

Azelle
I felt that leaving House Velthomer
was the only way to save Lady Edain.
I was selfish.

I am ready to answer for my
inexcusable deeds. You need
only say the word.


Arvis
Azelle... I believe that you may have
misunderstood the situation.

Azelle
Huh? Now I am confused. What is
there to misunderstand?

Arvis
When I fight, my aim is to remake the
world. I wish to tear down divisions
and make things equitable for all.

But there is a heavy toll for such
grand ambition. The sacrifice
required is...immeasurable.


Azelle
...

Arvis
These are my convictions, however,
and mine alone.

I believe each person must choose
their path, and that those choices—
those paths—must be respected.

One's thoughts or beliefs deserve to
remain sovereign. That is the world
I strive to build, no matter the cost.


Azelle
No matter the cost...

Arvis
Azelle, your choice to leave House
Velthomer was rooted in what you
believed was right.

It is not my place to condemn your
choice, and so there is no need for
forgiveness.


Azelle
Brother...

Arvis
However, remember this. Your
choices bind you to responsibility
for their consequences.

Before you choose, ask yourself:
What will you lose by that choice?
What will be gained by it?

Answering these questions is
your duty. Yours. It is not for you to place
their burden on others.


Azelle
I...understand. I will move forward
and take full responsibility for my
choices. Th-thank you, Arvis...

Arvis
Excellent. Always choose a path you
believe in. Only then can you live
without regret.

Lex
That's how Lord Arvis sees it, huh?

Azelle
After our meeting, I may be more
afraid of him than ever. I thought
I knew my brother, and yet...

Lex
You don't have to know him. He
talked about owning your choices,
right? That goes for him too.

He thinks he's found a path that'll
create the world he wants? Fine.
You don't have to follow him.


Azelle
His path... Yes. I worry about the
scope of his ambition. It really
is boundless.

Lex
Yes, it is...

Well, look at the bright side—at least
you didn't get scolded for leaving
House Velthomer!


Azelle
Truthfully, I might have preferred it if
he were angry at me for that.

Lex
Huh? Why?

Azelle
He said he will respect any choice
I make, and that I must take
responsibility for it.

I believe that what he meant is that if
we find ourselves in opposition to
each other, he will show no mercy.


Lex
I see. Yeah, that is a bit worrisome.

Azelle
No matter. I have already made my
choice. And I have tricked you into
coming along with me.

Lex
Ha! Don't sweat it. I'm here because
I want to be. We have to look out for
each other.

Azelle
Thank you, Lex. I am very glad we
were summoned here together.

Now we must forge our path in Askr.
If that pits us against Arvis, so be it.
As he said, we must own our choices.

I am ready to take responsibility, no
matter the outcome.

There is a future here worth striving
for and it will be built, in part, from
our choices.


Lex
Count me in! And when the going gets
tough, I'll be there choosing to drag
us forward. Ha ha!

Azelle
Heh! I know you will. Let us hope we
are both strong enough to see this
through.

Lewyn
Annand! Is that really you?

Annand
Prince Lewyn!

It is indeed—Annand, Heavenly Knight
of Silesse, reporting in. I was called
to Askr by [Summoner].

I hear that you have been assisting
the Order of Heroes here for quite
some time.


Lewyn
I have. And they certainly need the
help. This world seems to suffer one
misfortune after another.

It is an intense place to be, no doubt,
for a feckless minstrel such as myself.


Annand
Still calling yourself that? I dare say
this would be entirely too much for
a feckless minstrel to bear.

Lewyn
Annand... I have had a lot of time
to think of what I would say if we
were to meet again.

I owe you an apology.

When the storm came to Silesse...
I failed to protect you. You and
my mother both.


Annand
...

Lewyn
I can never hope to make up for the
harm I caused by evading my
responsibility. I know that.

I knew what needed to be done,
and...I lacked the strength to do it.
For whatever it's worth, I'm sorry.


Annand
No, Lewyn. Hold your head up high.

Erinys told me everything. How, after
I fell, you and the others continued
the fight.

How you passed on the desire for
peace to the next generation.

Our fight was not in vain. For me...
to know that is enough.


Lewyn
Annand... Thank you.

Annand
Pay it no mind. From this day
forth I am a knight of Askr, and I am
here to fight by your side.

Anna
So, Annand. Gotten used to life
here in Askr yet?

Annand
Thanks to you, the transition has
been pleasant and smooth. I have had
the comfort of familiar faces.

My duties, and even my training
regimen, are also quite similar to
what they were in Silesse.

I suppose the notion of wielding a
sword to defend one's home is
similar anywhere.


Anna
I admire your dedication. Some
Heroes start ditching their training
near as soon as they arrive.

They could stand to follow
your example.

At the same time...it might do you
some good to think of your life
in Askr as a bit of a fresh start.


Annand
What do you mean?

Anna
Heroes are called here to defend
Askr, sure, but there's more to life
than just that.

Living here affords our Heroes all
kinds of new opportunities. You
could consider branching out a bit.


Annand
I could not possibly lower my guard,
knowing what dangers we face...

Anna
Yeah, see. That's exactly the attitude
I think we should work on.

You're a Hero, Annand, but you're
also a person. Still a young one too!
Get out there and live your life!


Annand
Your...intensity is persuasive,
Commander Anna. I will consider it.

Anna
What good is fighting for peace and
freedom if we don't stop to enjoy
it once in a while, right?

Take this opportunity to get involved
with something that isn't just fighting.


Annand
I will try, but...fighting is all I know.
I haven't even the faintest idea
where to begin.

Anna
Hey, Annand! I heard a little rumor
you've taken up knitting.

Annand
Ah... Yes, Commander Anna. I have
taken the liberty of asking someone
to teach me the craft.

Forrest
Annand is doing a wonderful job! I'm
sure she'll be a master of the trade
in no time at all.

Annand
Ah... I still have much to learn, but
it has kept me occupied in the lulls
between training and duty.

Anna
Is that some of your work, there?
Let me see. Oooh, you're good!
That's way better than I could do.

Annand
I had not thought to try anything
like this before, but...I admit, it's
come rather naturally to me.

My hands seem to work instinctively.
My concentration has improved as
well. It may even help me in battle.


Forrest
Sometimes a shawl is just a shawl,
you know. It doesn't always need
to be about battle.

Annand
Of course. You're right. My mind
has a way of wandering to combat.

Anna
That makes sense. Hey, big changes
like this are hard.

Forrest
You also went out to forage for
mushrooms with Frederick yesterday,
didn't you?

And the day before that, I heard you
were out dancing with Rinea.


Annand
Indeed. The Heroes have been very
kind about including me in their
various pursuits.

All of these endeavors have been
so new to me. But they have certainly
enriched my life of late.


Forrest
Obviously, fighting for peace in Askr
is a high priority. But so is expanding
your horizons!

We still have some time before
training, so let's finish this shawl.
It's for your sister, right?


Annand
That's right. I hope Erinys will
enjoy it.

Forrest
You put your heart into making
something for her. I'm sure
she's going to love it!

Annand
Prince Lewyn. A moment?

Lewyn
Of course. Hm… What’s that
you’ve got there?

Annand
It’s, ah…a gift. For you.

Lewyn
A headscarf… It’s beautiful, Annand.
Did you make this yourself?

Annand
I did indeed. I am still new to knitting,
but I gave it my all.

Lewyn
It’s very well made. A lovely gift
that I’m all to glad to accept.

Annand
Your kind words make it well worth
the effort.

Lewyn
Is it me, or are you working even
harder lately than you used to?
Yet somehow you seem even more
at peace. Dare I say, you seem happy.

Annand
Until recently, I’d spent every waking
moment fighting, and training to fight,
as a knight of Silesse.
For a while, that was all I knew.
Since arriving in Askr, however, I have
discovered a life that exists just as
much off the battlefield as on it.

Lewyn
It’s a good change.

Annand
This may sound trifling, but I realize
now that this ordinary life is a part
of what we fight to protect.
Spending time outside of battle
has helped contextualize that for me.

Lewyn
To have an everyday routine, to see
the days go by without the disruption
of bitter conflict…
This is indeed the prize. I think the
crusaders of legend risked their lives
fighting for exactly that.

Annand
I feel the same way.
Had I stayed in Jugdral, however…
I believe I would have been a knight
and nothing more.

Lewyn

Annand
Now, in Askr, my life is full of all
manner of opportunities.
I only hope that I will be able
to open myself up to them.

Lewyn
You will.

Annand
Thank you. The idea of exploring
those possibilities is an exciting one
to me.
And in the meantime…I will continue
to fight to protect the people here,
and those who are dear to me.

Lex
Looks like Askr’s got the same need
for me as anywhere else.
Well…this secluded lake is as good
a spot as any. Time to get some
training in.

Lex
Yah! Hah! Ha–augh! Oh, no.
There goes my axe… Right into
the lake.
Huh? A…whirlpool? Something’s
rising out of it!

Bartre
Gahaha! Surprised ya, did I?!
The name’s Bartre!
Found this Stout Tomahawk in the
lake just now. This Arthur’s Axe
too. Either of these fine pieces yours?

Lex
No. I did lose an axe, but it was just
a simple training weapon. Iron.

Bartre
Ha! Honest lad! You’ve got potential.
And you just passed the test.
The Community of Hatchet-Operating
Persons officially extends to you
an invitation. Wanna join?

Lex
That’s, uh…CHOP, I suppose? More
importantly, what were you doing
in the lake?

Bartre
Gahaha! That’s right! If you wanna
CHOP, boy, you gotta swim! It’s the
most primal CHOP of all!
That’s why we axe masters are so
good in aquatic fights. We learn early
to CHOP the water!

Lex
I’m…not sure I see the connection…

Bartre
Well, if you wanna get serious about
you craxemanship, come join us.
Knock at the gates o’ CHOP.
We’ll welcome you in with the secret
CHOPshake. In the meantime…back
to swimming practice! Gahaha!

Lex
Hey! Wait! Ah, there he goes…
His arms sure do hit that water…
Maybe there’s something to these
CHOP people. But either way, I’m still
short an axe!

Lex
All right. Back to training. Hopefully
no…disturbances this time.
And thanks to Commander Anna,
I don’t need to go diving for my old
axe. This new one’ll do nicely.

Lex
Yah! Hah! Yaaa–oh no. Not again…
Really starting to see how all these
axes wind up in the lake.
Huh? What’s this singing? Beautiful…
Almost ethereal… But where’s it
coming from?!
Ah!
Who is it? Who’s there?!

Azura
My name is Azura. It seems you’ve
found my secluded rehearsal spot.
Did you happen to lose this Urðr to
the lake? Or perhaps this Aymr?

Lex
No… I did lose an axe, but it was just
a simple training weapon… Iron…

Azura
An honest man. Good. You’ve passed
the test.
We are the Hatchet Aspirational
Committee of Knowledge. In secret,
we elevate the axe’s true worth.

Edelgard
HACK sees the axe as a sophisticated
tool–the ideal implement to express
the power of one’s convictions.

Lex
This can’t be happening.

Edelgard
One cannot simply wave an axe
around with all one’s might and
expect significant results.
It must be wielded thoughtfully. With
discipline and determination. Only
then will it cleave through hardship.
HACK was formed to provide such
scholars of the axe a community
in which to support one another.

Frederick
More than any other weapon, the axe
possesses the strength to carve away
all threats to one’s liege lord.
We can bring this wisdom to light not
with shouting from the rooftops, but
with solemn and quiet purpose.

Lex
I like my axe well enough, but…is
there really a point to all that?

Azura
You have the will to grow stronger
within you. You’d do well not to
squander it.
Join us in HACK and you can realize
your full potential.

Edelgard
Consider our offer. Give us your
answer when we meet.
Farewell, for now.

Lex
Wait! Nope, there they go… That
song does make a mysterious exit…
I don’t get it. Is HACK some kind of
secret offshoot of CHOP?
Ugh… I’m short an axe again…

Azelle
CHOP…and now HACK?
Askr certainly does seem to have
some interesting and complex
organizational politics.

Lex
They’re both kind of questionable.

Azelle
So, you have no intentions of joining
either of them?

Lex
Honestly, I’m still baffled by it all.

Azelle
These thin arms of mine have never
been up to the task of learning the
axe, but…
I must admit, I am surprised to see
such a simple weapon have such
a complex following in Askr.
I suppose it must simply come down
to cultural differences.

Lex
No, I don’t think this is a matter
of Askr’s culture.
From what they said, I think there’s
something else going on.

Azelle
Well, it’s healthy to be skeptical.
But perhaps working alongside these
Heroes could be good for you.
You may be a descendant of the
legendary axe warrior Nál, but you
can still benefit from others’ help.

Lex
Not sure being Nál's descendent
figures into it. But it’s true I am
always looking to get stronger.

Azelle
Then this is a good opportunity, not
only to increase your strength, but
also your worth as a Hero.

Lex
Guess it does feel a little like an
opportunity. I’ll think it over.
We’ll see…

Azelle
So, which of the two did you join?
CHOP or HACK?

Lex
Ended up turning them both down.
Plenty of Heroes not involved
with any of this stuff, it turns out.

Azelle
That is a shame. It did seem like a
good opportunity to find some
quality training partners, at least.

Lex
I’ll be fine training on my own.
That’s how I’ve always done it.
That, and real battle.
More importantly, getting swept up in
something like that would mean I
might not be here if you needed me.

Azelle
Ah… You worry too much.
But thank you. It is reassuring to
know I can truly depend on a friend
like you.

Lex
That said, it’s time I got to training.
Oh, but before that, I need to see
Commander Anna about a new axe…

Azura
We have failed to persuade Lex to
join us. How unfortunate… He had
such promise.
??? There are plenty of axe users out
there. We’ll have other opportunities.

Azura
Of course. And we will be selective.
HACK will not be outdone by CHOP’s
brute-force approach.
Ours will be the graceful axe that
reverberates throughout Askr, like
the ocean’s gray waves…

Anna
Heheh… First CHOP, and now HACK.
Nothing wrong with a little friendly
competition, is there?
I’m sure each will push the other
to get better and better.
Anna
And as long as axes are being put to
frequent use, my wares will be in
high demand. Everybody wins.

Lex
You seem pleased with yourself,
Commander Anna. Business going
well, I take it?
Anna
Gah! Lex! How long have you been
standing there?!

Lex
Long enough to hear some of
whatever that was about.
Look, I just came to get an axe
to replace the one I lost in a lake.

Anna
Of course, of course. And you only
caught me mumbling to myself, that’s
all. Nothing to worry about…heheh…

Lex
Get the feeling I made the right
choice after all, Azelle…

Mother! Could it be? Is it really you?

Erinys
Pardon? I would assume you were
speaking to someone else, were I not
the only one here.

Ced
It is you. I’m certain. To think that we
could meet again here–ah, forgive
my manners! I am Ced. Your son.

Erinys
Son?! What is the meaning of this?!
There must be come mistake. Did you
say your name was Ced?

Ced
Yes. That is the name my parents
gave me, and I bear it with pride.

Erinys
If what you say is true, I do not know
what possessed me to take such
liberties with a crusader’s name.
But if it is true, if I am your mother…
Then you would–naturally you’d
have a father as well…

Ced
Of course. Do you not already know?
Would you…like to know his name?

Erinys
I–no! Do not say it! I am not meant
to hear such things!

Ced
It’s all right, Mother. Please,
calm youself…

Erinys
Calm?! A Hero I’ve never met has
declared himself my son! I cannot–
forgive me, but I must be going!

Fjorm
So a Hero you had only just met
introduced himself as your son?

Erinys
Yes. It was a shock, to say the least.
I thought my heart might burst
from my chest.
I…do not even have someone yet.
To suddenly learn that I have a son…
it is too much to take in all at once.

Fjorm
Heroes are summoned to this world
from many other places and times.
To meet younger versions of one’s
parents is actually not an uncommon
occurrence here.

Erinys
Is that so?
Has such a thing happened to you
during your time here? Have you
met any children of your own?
Fjorm
Me?! My children?!
I…what? But I…huh?

Erinys
Princess Fjorm… Are you well?
Can you breathe?
Fjorm
Aaah… Yes, I… I’m all right, thank you.
To be asked so suddenly about such
things, it…rather halts the breath.

Erinys
Yes, it does. I’m glad you understand
my feelings, at least.

Fjorm
I have heard that those from Ylisse,
Hoshido, and Nohr experienced it
in their worlds too, but…
It certainly is a different thing to be
put in that position yourself.

Erinys
If Ced truly is my son… I cannot
help but yearn to know who his
father is.
At the same time, I fear by learning it
I might somehow be tampering
with my fate.
Forgive me, Princess Fjorm. It was
wrong of me to drag you into this.

Fjorm
No, no, not at all! I would love to
help. Unfortunately, I’m just not
very well informed on this subject.
If it were me, I would want to know.
I’d at least be curious if it was
someone I’ve already met or not.

Erinys
Please–even just the thought of that
has my hands trembling.
I am a knight, sworn to protect Silesse
and Queen Lahna! I have never had a
thought to spare for children!
Fjorm
Let’s sit down to a nice cup of tea,
Erinys. We can talk this through.

Erinys
Thank you. I…feel like a bit of
a disgrace at the moment.
I had just become truly accustomed
to the danger of battle. And now an
entirely new peril presents itself…
I cannot worry Annand with this…
But if I cannot handle it myself, I risk
becoming the crybaby once again…

Fjorm
You don’t have to deal with this
all on your own.
The Heroes here have a wide variety
of knowledge and experience.
Someone must be able to help.

Erinys
Now that you mention it, there is
someone. The dancer, Silvia.
She was summoned here as well.
I wonder if she’ll listen to what
I have to say…

Silvia
Seriously? Why should I care about
your problems?!
You didn’t care about my feelings for
Prince Lewyn. All you cared about
was me being too “unrefined” for him!

Erinys
I’m sorry, I…didn’t really mean that.
I spoke impulsively.

Silvia
It wouldn’t be your impulse to say
it if that wasn’t how you really felt.
And that’s all I have to say to you.

Erinys
Wait. Please. I truly am sorry for what
I said. And the truth is…you are the
only one who can help me.

Silvia
Ask Ced yourself. Tell him you want
to know who his father is, and that’ll
be the end of it.

Erinys
I could not bring myself to do it!
That is why I am asking you now!

Silvia
Must be unnerving. What if the name
I gave you wasn’t the one you had
in mind?

Erinys
Yes. That is…exactly my fear.
I am so sorry to ask. If there were
anyone else who might know, I…
I know this cannot be easy for you,
either… But please…

Here’s a thought. Does it even matter
who Ced’s father is?

Erinys
What do you mean? Of course
it matters! Why wouldn’t it?

Silvia
The Ced you met here, the Hero,
he’s not from the same world as you.
He’s just one possibility. He might be
the son of a totally different version
of you. One with a different future.

Erinys
I suppose you have a point…

Silvia
Yeah. So no matter who his father
is, your future isn’t decided yet.
And neither is mine, understand?
So even if he’s Prince Lewyn’s son,
so what? It…doesn’t matter.
It wouldn’t mean I’d have to give up
on Prince Lewyn, because nothing’s
set in stone for either of us.

Erinys
You’re absolutely right. Thank you,
Silvia. That makes me feel…a great
deal better.
I am not going to ask Ced who his
father is. Nor will I tie my fate to it.
If love and family are in my future,
they will come in their own time.
And they will be my choice.
That is the only way I will ever be
satisfied with the result.
