Rif: Hello. I have a package here from Benson's Workshop.
(Delivered Package from Jade)
Shopkeep: Oh, hold on. Let me look at this.
If you ran, >Can’t Sneak It Past Inspection
If you walked, >Good Work
Can’t Sneak It Past InspectionShopkeep: You ran here, didn't you...
Rif: Huh?! H—how did you...
Shopkeep: Anyone who looked at this merchandise would understand! It's a good thing it's not too scuffed up, but it'll still cause trouble for us!
Rif: I'm sorry...
Shopkeep: And you look like you might be a blacksmith, too. I'm going to give you something to study from.
(Obtained Scroll for the Art of Obedience!)
Rif: I'll do my best...
-Well, now that we've finished that errand, shall we go back to the workshop?
Killfith: Whatever you wish.
Good WorkShopkeep: Good! High quality items as usual. Thanks for bringing it in.
-It's a good thing you were careful with these. If you take your work as a blacksmith as seriously as how you handled these merchandise, you're a girl with some real prospects.
-As a reward, take this.
(Obtained Scroll of Essential Understanding!)
Rif: Thank you very much!
-So, now that we're done with that errand, wanna head back to the workshop?
Killfith: Whatever you wish.
Rif: Let’s head back to the workshop!
Killfith: Got it.
Either way, as soon as you step out of the shop, you hear a bell clanging.
Rif: Ah, this sound...
Killfith: Tch... it’s the signal for something nearby… another abomination of a Stray?
Rif: This time it came from the South Gate…
(They both look towards a path that leads to the south)
Rif: A Stray Summon... those people might appear there again...
Killfith: Enemies... yet another thing to make my skin crawl. You ready to head back yet?
Rif: Ah, yeah!
Rif: I'm worried about Murno. Let's hurry back to the workshop!
Killfith: Then quit slowing us down and move it!
(Inside Benson's Workshop)
Rif: Ah, Master, you're back. How did the discussion go?
V.E: Discussion? Oh yeah, it went great. As soon as that Stray showed up, he disappeared.
-Never mind that, Rif. Where have you been? Isn't Murno with you?
Rif: What do you mean where, Aniki asked me to go on an errand. And Murno is with Eliez...
Eliez: Nope. Big sister Murno left.
Killfith: Left? Where?
Eliez: I dunno.
Killfith: What do you mean? How can you not know? Try to remember!
Eliez: Nn... um… big brother had to go to get rid of a Stray, and Murno followed after him...
V.E: That's enough, Eliez. Thank you.
-Are you happy, Killfith? Was yelling at a small child really that unavoidable?
V.E: (...) She's been acting strange ever since we came here. This is not the best time to make us worry…
-Jade has already gone out with the Patrol Unit. Do you two know anything about what she might be doing?
Rif: Do I...
Bostaph: Everything is that girl's fault. It is thanks to her that Stray Summons have begun to act violently in this area...
Rif: (No way... it couldn't have something to do with the Stray Summons...)
V.E: ... Guess it can't be helped, then.
-We'll have to comb the area! Move out!
