Part 110: FirSupports: Fir
You joined this army, too? What a coincidence.
Yeah... It is.
...Um...oh. Did you find the woman you were looking for?
I-I'm sorry... Maybe I shouldn't have asked...
No... It's all right. I was able to meet her.
Oh, you did? That's nice to hear.
Yeah... It is.
Is something wrong?
...I hadn't asked you yet. Which clan are you from?
Are you from the Bulgar clan? Or are you part of the Djute clan that betrayed us?
...I don't know.
...Was that...a joke?
N-No, it wasn't. I lived with my parents, so I don't really know much about the clans...
Um, you're from the Kutolah clan, right? You said so before.
That's right. Our chief is the Silver Wolf, the strongest warrior in Sacae. No one can match his mastery of the sword and bow.
You admire him greatly.
...Can you tell?
Yes, I can tell by your eyes. You're usually forbidding... I, I mean quiet... But you had a proud look on your face just now.
I... I am?
Sacaean women rarely pick up weapons. Even if they did, they would choose a bow. You would rarely see a girl fighting with a sword.
And... Sacaean people worship the Sky and Earth. You don't pray, and you don't even belong to a clan... I have never seen a Sacaean like you before.
No, I'm not accusing you. I actually respect it. People can also live freely like you... You've taught me a lesson.
I think you're exaggerating... But it feels nice to hear you say that.
You have beautiful eyes.
That must be because you're looking straight ahead at your dream of mastering the sword. I will pray that your dream will come true one day.
Yes! Thank you!
Fiiiir! Where are you? Fiiiir! Fiiiir!
F-Father... You are much too loud.
Ah, Fir! It's good to see you safe!
It's been a while since we last met. I was getting worried that we may not be able to see each other ever again.
Don't exaggerate, Father... We were together during our marches.
But we don't have many chances in which we can speak in private like this. Now come, Fir. You can tell your father anything that's on your mind.
F-Father... I'm sorry, but I have instructions from Master Roy.
Do you? Then I shall accompany you.
Thank you, but I must fulfill my tasks on my own, otherwise it wouldn't be training. I must be off now. *leaves*
Hum... Be careful, my daughter...
Fiiiir! Fiiiiir! Where are you, my daughter?
F-Father... You don't have to shout so loudly...
I've been hearing some troubling rumors, Fir. I hear that you are secretly seeing a man in the army.
Is it true, my daughter? But fear not! I shall crush any bad influences that may advance upon you!
N-No, you don't understand! He's helping me with my training. That's all.
Oh, so you were looking for someone to hone your skills with. But no worries, my daughter. You have your father to spar with! Now come, charge at me with full force!
Um... I appreciate your consideration, but it needs to be someone who can use a sword...
I'm sorry, Father... *leaves*
Hum... Take care of yourself, my daughter...
I can hear you!
Ah, Fir. You were all right...
Father! Enough is enough! I'll be quite fine on my own! I don't need your overprotection!
...Forgive me. I was wrong...
Forgive me, my daughter... I just wanted to make up for our lost time together.
Yes... When you were still a little girl, both your mother and I were always training. I regret now that we didn't pay enough attention to you. You never knew your parents' warmth...
But you grew up to be a strong, confident young woman. However, that isn't thanks to me. So I just wanted to be able to help you in any way that I could...
Father... You were always kind and loving. Whenever I was about to fall apart, you held me in your strong arms and comforted me...
Father... I was happy.
Fir... Oh, my daughter...
F-Father! Please don't cry in a place like this...
