Rif: We should just keep looking for materials for now...
-Though I can't help but think about whoever might be following us...
Killfith: Hmph... Whoever it is, I'm sure it's no one to be concerned about.
Eliez: Then, maybe it's Master Benson.
Killfith: If it really is him, it'll give me a good excuse to fight him.
Rif: I don't think that's the right answer here...
And so they continue on blithely, until...
???: Hey! You!
(WHY DO THEY FOLLOW YOU EVERYWHERE?)
Man: I just want to ask you one thing.
Rif: What is it?
Killfith: Tch... It was just these guys...
Eliez: Big sis... I'm scared...
Rif: It's all right! Don't worry.
Man: You're that Summon Creature's apprentice Rifmonica, right?
Rif: I don't believe it... the only people who call me that are from Bostaph's Workshop.
Man: We suffered horribly because of that woman.
Rif: I thought something like this might happen... did Master hurt you with her fists? Poor things…
Man: Quit screwing around! If you're her apprentice, you should man up and take responsibility for this!
Rif: Sheesh, settle down. But first, I want to have a little word with you.
Man: A word about what...?
Rif: You see, my master told me it wouldn't be good to get into any fights...
-And besides that, are you really going to start something when there’s a little girl right here?
-Don't you screw with me!
(Thus ensues a fight with some dudes who aren't important enough to have their own names)
Man: Crap… These guys are strong!
Eliez: Big sis...
Rif: Hey. I told you to calm down. You're scaring Eliez!
-If my Master did something wrong, then I'll apologize. But I can’t do that if I don’t know what I’m apologizing for!
Man: What was that, you pipsqueaks...!
Lemmy: If that’s all, then how about we put an end to this?
(Guess who enters the equation?)
Lemmy: Perhaps you thought you had a right to insult anyone you liked because the deceased Rob struck you?
Lemmy: Only you were not struck by these people’s Master. Rather, you are fighting to defend our Master Bostaph, correct?
Lemmy: And yet, wasn't it said that all of that was a misunderstanding? That your resentment is unjustified? Your conduct now is shameful.
Man: I can't believe it... are you saying you support that Summon Creature woman? Traitor!
Lemmy: Traitor...? How so?
Lemmy: Exactly how have I betrayed anyone!
Lemmy: Do you not understand what you are doing?! You are throwing mud onto Master Bostaph's face.
-Unless you are trying to tell me that one must soil Master Bostaph—no, the name of our workshop—in order to remain an ally.
Killfith: Heh... his aura right now is pretty interesting...
(The men run off, tails tucked between their legs)
Rif: Thanks. You saved us.
Lemmy: Saved you? I only did it for Master Bostaph's sake.
-I had no intention of saving any of you.
Rif: Honestly, you're always like this...
Lemmy: (looking at Eliez) …
-And exactly what are you thinking taking a child so young to aimlessly wander in a place like this?
Rif: I'm not taking her along anywhere. Eliez said she wanted to go.
Eliez: Um… I…
Rif: Ah... no, I don't mean to say that it's your fault.
-What I mean to say is, see, I had some free time, you see, since Master is over at your place, and Murno is at the Council of Gold…
Lemmy: The Council of Gold? What business could she possibly have in such a place?
Rif: Beats me. All I know is she wanted to talk to some guy named Velworen.
Killfith: You really need to learn when to stop talking.
Rif: Ah, sorry...
Lemmy: Velworen… a man who entrusted this town’s Council to people who cannot directly use the Art of Summoning.
-It is a detestable name, yet now I learn that you are connected with it. How is that supposed to be funny…
Rif: What do you mean by that?
Lemmy: Nothing really.
Rif: Ah, wait!
Lemmy: Take… care.
Eliez: Eh? Okay.
Rif: Well, that was weird. Anyway, Eliez, do you still want to go inside?
Eliez: Mm-hm! I wanna go even more now!
Rif: All righty then! Off we go!
