(Scene fades back in with Eliez running up to the workshop)
Eliez: I'm ba~ack!
‑Is everyone still not here yet?
(Inside the Council of Gold)
Rif: … And that's everything.
Velworen: (while looking at the demon stone) So perhaps Govan's Demon Stone really is concealing such extraordinary powers…
-I can’t believe that something so amazing was hidden in that Mishews Village!
Jade: Do you mean the Council of Gold already knew about that village?
Janna: Around the time this town was established, we sent out a thorough investigation of this area. That was when we discovered it.
‑However, since we believed the village had very little worth, we refrained from getting too involved.
Velworen: At that time, I was sent to this town to offer our greetings.
‑I discovered some rather interesting ruins. I've lost count of how many times I’d wandered through them.
-But after the deaths of Rob and the others, I was no longer permitted to enter them…
Janna: In any case, what you’re saying is that if we return this demon stone to your village, the Stray Summons should settle down.
Jade: Except Anise's gang is trying to get their hands on it.
Velworen: It's hard to believe they’re such evil people… what will you do, Bostaph?
Bostaph: What shall I do, you ask...? I don't intent to do anything.
V.E: (annoyed) Hold on, what are you—
Bostaph: I have a contract with her group. Unless you can offer me definitive proof, I see no reason to doubt them.
V.E: That ‘group’ laid hands on my precious apprentices! Are you really going to stand up for those creeps?
Bostaph: As long as they continue to bring down Stray Summons, yes.
Killfith: Wake up. Those cretins…
Bostaph: A Summon Creature should keep his mouth shut!
Janna: (…) Certainly, Bostaph does have a point.
-It would not be good to rake these people over the coals simply on these children’s word.
Rif: But that…!
Janna: (To Bostaph) I am sorry to ask this so bluntly, but we will need you to put together a dossier of the party in question.
Bostaph: I am not of such poor principles that I would betray those I have a contract with. I will not do as you ask.
V.E: Hold on a minute there!
Jade: Forget it, V.E! Bostaph’s not gonna listen to anything we say right now.
V.E: … Tch! I suppose making a move in public would only make a scene.
Jade: That’s right. First things first, we should try to do some of our own investigating.
Janna: I think it would be good for you not to forget your job as a member of the Patrol Unit. The damage caused by Strays has been increasing.
Jade: You really know how to rub salt in it, don’t you? That’s fine, though. I get what you’re saying.
Murno: (…) Um… if that’s everything, then the demon stone…
Velworen: Ah, sorry, of course.
(Govan’s Demon Stone has been returned to Murno)
Janna: Hold on! Why are you returning it? If we had a little longer to inspect it, then…
Velworen: But if we have this in our possession, we will also end up being targeted…
Janna: Ah… I-I suppose… all right then.
-(to Murno) But will you be all right, Ms. Murno? Until Anise and her gang’s identity comes to light…
-I also have my doubts about whether you manipulated Summon Strays, since the details are not perfectly clear yet.
Janna: From your explanation today, it seems that we will not have to place you under arrest, but please be sure to exercise some prudence in the future.
-In accordance with the aforementioned conclusion, we expect that you will offer us Govan’s Demon Stone at another time so that we might inspect it.
Murno: Yes, ma’am…
Janna: Then, we are adjourned for the day.
