Rif: We did it! We won!
Sarge: Guess I lost…
Rif: So are you going to give back Govan’s Demon Stone or what?
Sarge: Who said I was gonna give it to you?
Killfith: You cretin… I think I’ve put up with this for long enough…
Sarge: I didn’t say I wasn’t gonna give it back at all. I’m just gonna return it to that girl in person.
Rif: Huh? In person…?
-(blushing) Y-yeah… ‘n sorry, I guess.
Rif: What was that last part?
Sarge: I didn’t say nothin’! Let’s just go already.
Jade: That worked out pretty well, huh, Rif?
Rif: Yup! Anyway, we better head back!
Killfith: Whatever you wish.
Rif: Since Sarge is gonna give the demon stone back to Murno, let’s head over to the house!
Killfith: Imbecile… do you honestly trust that guy after everything he’s done?
Rif: Well, yeah. I don’t know if it’s because of the match we had, but I feel like we reached an understanding… so, I think his word is good…
Killfith: Hmph… perhaps it’s because he’s a simpleton just like you…
(In front of the V.E’s house)
Jade: Oh, they finally came.
Sarge: What were you draggin’ your feet about? You’re late!
Rif: Geez, what’s the rush!
Sarge: Shut up. I’m goin’ in.
V.E: Where is that noise coming from!
Sarge and Rif: Yipes!
(V.E storms out, annoyed)
V.E: What is this huge racket outside my house? Rif? If this is another fight…
Rif: No, it’s not! He’s here to return the demon stone.
V.E: (smiles) Hmm… I see. If that’s how it is, then…
Murno: (comes out) …
Rif: It’s okay. He wanted to return the demon stone to you in person.
Sarge: Here… take it.
Murno: … Thank you.
Sarge: No… I’m sorry for before… you didn't get bruised, didja?
Murno: Eh? No, I didn't…
Sarge: Well, that’s good… then, I’ll get goin’ now.
Rif: Hey, thanks, by the way!
Sarge: There’s no reason ta thank me!
Murno: I’m so glad…
Rif: I’m sorry, Murno. It’s my fault you had to go through all—
Murno: No, it’s fine. Actually, I should be the one apologizing…
-Ever since I came here, it seems like I’ve been nothing but trouble for you and everyone…
Rif: You haven’t been any trouble at all!
Killfith: It’s true. You shouldn’t worry about something like that.
Murno: Killfith… you…
-Thank you. Both of you…
Jade: Now that expression is much better to look at. I wonder where you picked it up?
Rif: I’m really sorry, Master… I ended up fighting after all…
-So, I guess nothing’s really changed…
V.E: What are you talking about? Hasn’t there already been a huge change?
V.E: You know, that guy’s expression.
-Do you really think that expression on his face meant he’d be coming back to retaliate?
Rif: I guess not.
V.E: Then, as far as I can see, you did well.
Rif: Um, so in other words…?
V.E: In other words, not everything can be solved with strength… although that’s not exactly it, is it?
-What I mean is, I don’t think he would have done something like returning it unless something important in the mood between you changed or…
-Augh! Geez, never mind! Figure it out yourself!
V.E: Ah, that’s right! A long time ago, Rob said something.
-“For us Craftknights, our first objective is not simply to become a means of forging weapons.”
-So, you get it now, right?!
Rif: I got it!
V.E: Good. Now I have to go make preparations to leave for town.
Rif: Master… if I said that my motives weren’t for revenge, would you let me come with you?
-I don’t want to stay here and house-sit while something’s going on in town. Especially when I’m supposed to be training as hard as I can.
V.E: What are you trying to say? It’s no use. You’re staying here.
Jade: Hey, listen, Rif. It’s not all about training.
V.E: Just think about it. Are you going to leave Murno here all alone?
Rif: Ah, that’s right. I’m sorry, Murno. I was being selfish.
V.E: So, if that’s settled, please leave yourself in Rif’s care.
Murno: Um, Miss V.E… if I said I wanted to come too, would you still say it’s no use?
V.E: Hold on… what’s this, all of a sudden?
Murno: Because until Miss V.E’s injury has gotten better, it is my duty to personally look after you.
V.E: No, you—the circumstances going to town… your help won’t be needed there.
Murno: But… I would like to go very much. Please.
-I don’t have to just look after you. I can carry luggage and do other odd jobs.
Killfith: You really mean it, don't you?
V.E: Why are you…? You know, you’re so quiet most of the time, but when you want to stand up, you can do it pretty explosively, can’t you?
V.E: Hmm… it seems you’ve been thinking about this.
-But you know, lately there’s been a dangerous increase in Strays… I’m fine on my own, but frankly, you’d be pretty helpless.
-This time, it’s my turn! >Bravado
-Like Master said, it’ll be dangerous… >Caution
BravadoRif: Then let us come along, and it should be fine! >Not the Problem
CautionRif: Certainly, if Murno went, she would be in danger…
Killfith: You do realize this is a perfect situation to exploit, don’t you?
Rif: Ah, that’s right! I could protect Murno! >Not the Problem
Not the ProblemV.E: You could, but I wouldn’t be any less troubled.
Jade: Geez. Don’t you get it? V.E would be worried about you if you came along.
-As far as I can tell, you guys are mostly talk. In the forest, it’s not gonna be one man like today, it’ll be loads of tough Strays.
Jade: If you really think you’re up for it, how about you personally test your strength against me?
Rif: Huh?! Really?! You mean beat you in a match?
Jade: Yeah… if you can beat me as Craftknights in a match, then you can go.
Rif: Hooray! As one would expect of Aniki! So cool!
V.E: What is this… who gave you the authorization to make such a decision?
-You really think my apprentice would lose to you? What do you think, Rif?
-Anyone with enough determination can win! >Let's Do This!
-To be honest, I’m not confident I can win… >Honestly
HonestlyRif: I wonder…
Killfith: … If you have worries, hurry up and put them aside.
Rif: Killfith… >Let's Do This!
Let's Do This!Rif: Yeah! Of course!
Jade: You said it. Don’t hold back. Give me all you got.
V.E: And when he says don’t hold back, he means it. Is that understood, Rif?
Rif: Yes, ma’am!
Jade: All right, Rif. Tell me when you’re ready.
