-The truth is, I'm really bad with speeches.
Killfith: Feeling self-conscious, are we?
Rif: ... That's not what I wanted you to say!
-Anyway, I'll do my best. I just have to make everyone understand that Anise and her gang are trying to nab the demon stone!
Killfith: Heh... do the best you can.
Rif: For some reason, I feel kind of cheated, but thanks anyway!
-All right! Let's go!
(Rif exits the forging room)
Tier: Oh, Rif, how are you? Were you able to sleep all right?
Rif: Yeah, I slept like a rock!
V.E: Is that so? I'd like to ask if you've already figured out what you're going to say, but…
-Knowing you, I'd be happy just as long as your eight hours of sleep helped your brain to put everything in order.
Rif: You'll see! Soon we'll tell everyone flat-out how Anise and her friends have been trying to get the demon stone!
-But if Master Bostaph really is friends with those guys, I wonder what'll happen…
-Master Bostaph is still pretty suspicious... not to mention scary-looking...
Eliez: (...) Master Bostaph is... suspicious...?
Jade: (annoyed) Hey, Rif! Don't be so bent on distrusting someone just because they're ‘scary-looking!’
Rif: Uh, right! Sorry, Aniki.
Jade: Hold on there! What kind of apology was that?
Killfith: Hmph. If it's just a scary face that makes a villain…
(Everyone looks at Master Benson)
Murno: Killfith, be nice!
Jade: Anyway, don't give that kind of nonsense a second thought. Okay, Eliez?
Eliez: (still upset, but with a small smile) ... Mmkay.
V.E: Well, shall we go, then?
Jade: We'll be waiting outside, so hurry up.
Eliez: I’ve got stuff I need to do, too!
Rif: Today's the big meeting. Let's get to the Council of Gold and stir things up!
Killfith: I think you might actually be incapable of shutting up.
Rif: That’s beside the point!
(Outside the workshop)
V.E: Are you ready to go to the Council of Gold yet?
-Of course I'm ready! >To the Council
-Just a little longer. >Arg
ArgV.E: Hurry up.
To the CouncilV.E: All right, let's go.
V.E: Hold up, who said you're coming with us?!
Jade: There’s no helping it. Even if you came, there's nothing you could do.
-Just keep an eye on the workshop for us.
Tier: Cheh… Fine, I'll just leave, then.
Jade: H-hey, wait up…
Murno: (to Killfith) I wonder where she went.
Killfith: Business transaction, probably.
Jade: Good grief. She goes off on her own just because of a little scolding.
V.E: Only because she didn't want to consent to a little house-sitting. Really, how dreadful.
-Well, no point in dwelling on it. We have some business of our own to put in order.
-Time to get serious! Put on your war face!
Rif: Yes, ma'am!
In front of Bostaph's workshop, Lemmy watches the group, fuming silently. Without a word, he goes into the workshop. Meanwhile, everyone else is staring after him.
Rif: What was that about...?
V.E: Don't get distracted. We’re moving out!
Rif: Uh—yes, ma'am.
(They head off; fade to black)
