Rif: Hey… what’s going on over there?
-(sees the spike-haired dudes)
-What are they up to this time?
(She runs up stairs)
???: But I already apologized to you…
Goon: You call that an apology?
-You think such a weak little ‘sorry’ is gonna excuse you from going around knocking into people? That better be a joke!
Goon: What’s that? You gonna apologize now, runt?
???: You—you really shouldn’t get mixed up with me…
-You run into ME and that’s what you have to say?! Hey!
(He knocks the kid down, and her hat falls off)
Goon: What?! That dude’s a chick!
(She begins to run off, but he grabs her)
Goon: Hold on!
???: Let me go!
Goon: You still being like that? Don’t wanna apologize that much, huh?
Goon: Oh, I know! If you don’t wanna apologize, how ’bout you keep me some company instead, huh? … How’s that sound?
???: Why would I want to do that?
Goon: I’m saying you’d do it to make up for knockin’ me over!
???: If you don’t stop messing around…
Goon: Oh? You’ll do what?
???: I’ll… huh?
-Hey…! What happened? Why isn’t it here?! My stone!
Goon: Hey, hey… if you don’t stop messing around, then I’m gonna have to do something about it, won’t I?
???: No! Get away from me!
Rif: Why those creeps…!
???: Oh! It’s you…
Goon: What is it?! You got some kinda business with us, apprentice?
-You bet I have some business with you. >Playing Hero
-No, not really. >Playing Around
Playing HeroRif: Get away from her!
Rif: Didn’t you hear me?
-(steps in front of kid)
-I said, get away from her. >To Protect
Playing AroundRif: I don’t have any business with you, no.
Goon: That was quick.
Rif: Sorry, but it just so happens I have some important business to discuss with the girl. So, why don’t you do us a favor and get lost? >To Protect
To ProtectGoon: Why you… this cocky attitude of yours is turning into a real bad habit, Stray’s apprentice.
Rif: What attitude?! If you ask me, a guy picking on a girl is the only thing around here that looks bad!
Goon: What was that, asshole!
-Before you keep mouthin’ off, you oughta know I've got a need to beat people up who don’t apologize.
Rif: I’m not about to apologize for that. Not when a guy like you deserved it!
Goon: You brat, I’ll knock that smirk right offa your face!
Rif: Bring it on!
???: All of this… this is all my fault…
Rif: Huh? What’s that?
???: It’s only because you got involved with me that you have to do this. That’s why…
-That’s why I told you before that you shouldn’t concern yourself with me…
Rif: Sorry, but I can’t do that.
???: Why not?
-Hey, I’m about to fight for your freedom right now. What an uncool question!
Rif: Anyway, what’s said is said! I’m taking these guys on!
-I may not be much, but I will protect you!
???: (blushing) …!
(Rif and Goon fight; Rif wins)
Rif: How’s that! Give up yet?
Rif: Now that that’s out of the way, there’s something important I wanted to ask you. You see, I found this just a bit ago.
//If before you wanted to use it to make a weapon//
Rif: I wondered if it could be used as weapon materials.
???: No it can’t! It’s very important to me! Give it back!
//Or if you simply resolved to return it to her//
Rif: Is this thing important to you?
???: Yes! Now give it back!
Rif: Ahh, I’m sorry! Of course I’ll give it back…
-Wait, that’s right! The Summon Creature!
Rif: Of course I’ll return this to you, but if you could just tell me about that Summon Creature from before…
(Guys suddenly grab Rif)
Rif: What are you doing?! Let me go! Perverts!
Goon: Can it! (punch)
Rif: Urgh… I can’t believe you guys… would use such cowardly methods…
Goon: Didn’t I tell you to shut up?
Rif: … Nhh…
Goon: So it’s cowardly, huh? Well, we’re just humble compadres, so it’s only common sense we work together, doncha think?
Creep: That’s right. But if it’s too much for you to handle, we won’t mind if you summon up your Master Summon Creature.
Goon: Not that it’ll do any good. She’s just some Stray!
Goon: So, little miss, how about you do me the kindness of offering some company to Lord Again and Again?
???: No way!
Rif: Stop this!
Goon: Why should I? You gonna protect her? Huh?!
???: I’m so sorry…
???: I’m so sorry… please, just forget about me. If… if I promise to go with him…
Rif: What are you saying! I can’t let you…
(Punch; Rif collapses)
Creep: Hahaha… you’ve already had your turn, so stay out of the way!
Rif: Urggh… I… this is so not cool…
Rif: No! I can’t let it end like this!
-I have to help her! I have to… I must…!
//So yeah… “Lord Again and Again.” Literally he said, “keep Shibashi-sama company” where “shibashi” means either “for a while” or “again and again”… it’s a pun, get it? Another thing to note is that Goon had been speaking very casually, but suddenly uses polite language in that line. It’s a hugely noticeable in Japanese, but less so in English, since the English language has less emphasis on politeness.//
