Deep in the Flawed Caves…
Murno: No! Let go of me!
Pike: Heeheehee... Did you really think you could get away from me when you're keeping that kind of power on you?
Anise: Unless you want that child who was running after us before to suffer, you'll give up that demon stone now!
(Rif and Killfith run up)
Rif: Stop this right now, you creeps!
Gillan: Oh my, if it isn't the young lady from before...
Murno: (!) Rif! Killfith...
Anise: If they know this girl… they'll definitely try to get in my way!
Killfith: Murno, are you hurt?
Anise: Ha! Are you going to treat us like the villains? What a thoughtless bunch...
Rif: What’s that supposed to mean?
Anise: Don't you get it? The only scoundrel here is that Murno girl!
Rif: (!) That's... that's not true!
Gillan: Not true, is it? But it's this girl's fault that all the Stray Summons around here have started acting out.
Rif: ... You're lying...
Murno: (...) Rif... ... I'm so sorry...
-It seems I've put you through a lot of misfortune, after all...
Rif: But that... what do you mean, misfortune? I don't—
Murno: Thank you, Rif... but, please, you shouldn't get involved with me any more than this...
Rif: ...?! Why—why would you...?
Anise: Ahhahahahaha… how delightful! After all the trouble you went through to chase us this far—what a miserable wretch!
-Looks you thought you'd just come and save your friend from being abducted by a bunch of bad guys, but what are you going to do now?
-Listen up! This has nothing to do with you! This girl’s existence is unnecessary! You being here can only get in the way!
Rif: Wh—how can you... that isn't for you to decide! You have no place saying that!
Gillan: Hold it right there, munchkin. Are you sure you want to pick a fight with us?
-As you can see, we're a bit busy right now, and if you continue to interfere, we'll be forced to punish you…
Pike: Don't take them too lightly, Gillan. I found out for myself those twerps are a lot stronger than they look!
Gillan: Thank you for the lovely bit of advice, but there's no need to be concerned for my sake, Mr. Loser.
Pike: What did you say, you nutbag!
(While he's distracted, Murno escapes)
Pike: Darn it! Got away!
Anise: What are you just standing there for? Chase after her! As long as she has the demon stone…
-Nothing matters but capturing that girl!
(Anise and Pike give chase. Rif gapes after them.)
Rif: Huh?! Murno!
-(takes a step, but Gillan interrupts)
Gillan: She’s just an obstinate child; there’s no need to call out so boorishly. She just needs to be brave and come back to us like a good girl.
-But since she keeps being so obstinate, is it really so unnatural that people end up hating her?
Rif: Hey... that...
Killfith: I know how I feel about him…
-Have you decided whether protecting Murno is the best thing to do? Tell me now, are you going to fulfill your promise or not?
Rif: Hey, Killfith, when the heck did you start saying such cool things?
Gillan: You must be joking! Summon Creatures should not be allowed to say something so audacious.
-I suppose I shall simply have to rehabilitate him, then!
(Rif fights Gillan)
