: Lord Eliwood...
: I... Id like to thank you.
: Huh? What is it? Why the formality?
: Lady Lyn told me... She told me... She told me it was you. You were the one who helped me one year ago.
: Oh, that.
: I apologize. I... I had lost consciousness, and I fear I never properly thanked you, Lord Eliwood.
: Dont let it concern you. I wanted to help.
: But still-
: Hrm... Ah, I know! Next time you are free, show me your dancing! Not one of the little dances-- something special.
: A special dance, my lord?
: Er... sorry, didnt mean to sound too forward!
: No, not at all! I mean, Id be glad to.
: Great, then its a deal! Im looking forward to it.
: Y-Yes. I am too.
: In Pherae, every year, we hold a grand harvest festival. Everyone in the land comes to eat, drink, and dance.
: That sounds like fun!
: You should come, too, Ninian. Everyone would be happy to see your dancing, I think. The one you showed me the other day was truly beautiful.
: Thank you.
: My mother, too, loves dancing, you know. She would be pleased. At festival time, she dances all night like a young maiden. My father always clucked his tongue and shook his head, but each year, he would dance with her until the dawn. Ah--
: Forgive me. You... must think of my father often enough.
: No... its all right. I mean, not compared to you, Lord Eliwood...
: Ninian, remember what I told you? My fathers death was not your fault. You should not blame yourself, not at all.
: But, Lord Eliwood... y-youre wrong. You dont know everything that...
: I... I have been deceiving you.
: Deceiving? What do you mean?
: It is just... I-Im sorry.
: Ninian? Ninian, dont cry. I dont know what has happened, but I do know I never want to see you sad.
: ...Lord Eliwood.
: I finally caught up with you. Whats wrong, Ninian? Why the long face?
: Please, do not worry on my account. I... I am not worthy- I am not even worthy to stand in your sight, Lord Eliwood. I have been deceiving you.
: Yes, as you were saying before. Ninian... You have been keeping some secret from us?
: But...you cant tell me what it is. Am I right?
: Very well.
: If it is too hard for you to talk about, I will not force you. Just... if you ever feel able, tell me then.
: But... I have been false... I have lied to you and the others.
: Ninian, I love you. That will not change, no matter what may come.
: Lord Eliwood...
: I dont care what your secret is- I will still feel the same. If something troubles you, let me sweep it away. Please, dont cry anymore. I would do anything to see you smile again. You are the first woman I have ever felt this way about, Ninian.
: Lord Eliwood... I... I dont know what- Lord Eliwood... Lord Eliwood...
D'awww This is more or less the canon relationship for Eliwood. Not even "gives a romantic ending" canon, but straight up "this changes the ending sequence" canon.

: Ahh...Dame Florina...
: You know... You really dont have to call me that. You can just call me Florina.
: Oh... All right... Miss Florina. Say, Miss Florina, youre from Ilia, right?
: Um, yes. Ninian, you know about Ilia?
: Yes... There are white mountains covered with snow, and... I was, um...born there.
: Y-You were? Wow...you and I are from the same place, then. Thats funny...I feel so much closer to you now... Well, we should definitely talk more...
: Sure, that would be nice.
: Um, Ninian...?
: Yes? What is it, Miss Florina?
: Can I... Can I ask you for some advice?
: You want to ask me for advice? What about?
: Well, you see, I... Im really bad at talking to men... And I cant seem to even get along with all of the soldiers we fight alongside... So what do you think I could do to...you know, make it easier to talk to people?
: Well... I feel like you sort of... picked the wrong person to ask... I dont think Im really all that good at talking to people either...
: Oh...all right... I just thought... You know, youre just so easy to talk to...
: Well, I feel the same way...about you.
: So then... We can count on each other as friends from now on, right?
: Yes... absolutely!
