Part 28: Nina is Awesome

Chapter 27 - Nina is Awesome

"Lord Riou, Greenhill is north of Two River. Please be careful."

That was fast!

"Lord Flik, these are enrollment papers for the Academy. They're three years out-of-date, so please tell the guards you were delayed by the war."

"Uh... yeah, sure... Hey, Fitchter... you seem to be good with, uh, words... couldn't you help us out a little?"

"I'm afraid I can't. There are many in Greenhill that know my face."

"Then I guess I have to go through with it... But what do we do once we're in?"

"I'm working on finding out Teresa's whereabouts. When I know something, I'll get word to you somehow. Until then, hang on."

"Right, got it. Okay, leader, let's go."

"Wait a second, Flik!! If you use the word 'leader' we'll be found out right away! Look, there's a place for names on these papers... Come up with some fake names and fill them in. I'll leave it up to you."

"What should we do, Riou? You come up with the names, I'm no good at this."

"Uh, Riou... We're meant to be choosing FAKE names here."

"Then, then, I'll be... I'll be... Yeah! Maybe 'Beth?'"

"Oh no it's not! Flik, you need a name too."

This proves the people who translated Suikoden II were not the same as that translated 1.

"Oh that's great! Let's go with that!!"

"Uh, on second thought... I think I'm fine as is. Let's go, Riou! I mean... Let's go, Reinbach!"

"We do have business here..."

"Wha...? You're here to enroll in the Academy?"

"Yeah, we got our papers like three years ago... and, uh, there was the war, you know? So we got, uh, delayed, and, well, we came all the way from Kanakan..."

"Uh-huh. And you are...? You don't look like a teacher... These kids... they can't be... your children?"

"What, are you kidding? I'm working for their parents... I'm these kids' bodyguard."

"Well, your papers seem to be in order. You may pass. You better not cause any trouble, though!"

"And don't get distracted!"

"Who's gonna get distracted? We're not those kinds of kids, are we, Riou?" ( Way to go on keeping up the act, Beth. )

"Okay, okay, let's go."

"Hmph!! That's what you get when you stare at a lady with those perverted eyes!!!"

"Pipe down, little girl, or I won't be responsible for what I do, even if you ARE just a kid!"

"Huh? What's that, big man? You want a piece of me, huh? Huh?"

"Uh... uh... Well..."

"WHAT??? No way, no way!! Riou, you're not gonna help? Are you a man or a mouse?!"

"If we get caught here, it's all over. Come on, Nanami, let's go."

"Bleeaaaahh! My big bro here will beat you down!"

"H, Hey... Wait a second, who...?"

"So now I've gotta fight you, huh?"

"You little..."

"Yeah! You fools will get beaten DOWN!!"

"Hah!! What are you saying? And what do you expect to do with that pathetic, dull blade?"

"...!!! Hey, you. You want to see, close-up, if this blade really is dull?"

"Eh? I..."

"I'd be happy to demonstrate its sharpness on your neck."

"This is stupid! I can't be doing this. You! I'll let you get away with this, just this once."

"Smart move. Come on, let's go, Riou... I mean, Reinbach, Beth."

"You said we should try to lay low, and yet you're the one who's making himself stick out like a sore thumb!"

"Shut up! Come on, let's go!!"

Every town needs its resident lesbian, I guess.

This is the, what, sixth or seventh time they've flubbed this?

"Well, it does seem your papers are in order. Welcome to New Leaf Academy, pride of Greenhill! Allow me to show you children around. By the way..."

"Wh, what?"

"These children, are they yours?"

"C'mon, be serious. I'm their escort, their escort!"

"I see... of course. All students live in the dormitories at the west end of the campus. The first two weeks of schooling are orientation, during which your attendant may stay at the lodging house east of the dorms. Remember, students that prove to be problematic during orientation will be expelled... so be good."

"Yes ma'am."

"Ah, fine replies. I think you children will do fine. Come with me, I'll show you around."

"Um, um, I guess we are a little nervous -- it's our first time at a school."

"Hey, hurry up or we'll be left behind."

Oh, Hi Jeane.

"Up on the second floor are the study halls. During orientation, you may go anywhere on campus to decide what your major will be. Do you understand?"

"I see!"

"Yes ma'am, I understand!!"

"I see."

". . . . .?"

"These are some new students and their escort."

"I see... Excuse me."

"Who was that?"

"That was the acting mayor's attendant, but she's been missing since the assault... Teresa, that is."

"Missing, huh..."

"It's getting fairly late, so be sure to go straight to the dorms after you walk around the school a bit. Well then, everyone, I must be going. I trust you will all become fine students at our Academy!"

"All right, let's look around. We might be able to find some clues as to Teresa's whereabouts."

Welp, he's gone! I give up.

"Hmm... I wouldn't call it easy, but there's nothing terrible about it. Well, there might be right now, with the occupation and all."

"Hm? Lord Shin? Why are you asking about him?"

"Oh my, are you sure you can be telling me this? Tee-hee, I thought you were up to something. That person named Flik has been nosing around quite a bit..." ( Nice going Flik, we've only been here for ten minutes. )

"The Unicorn Army... I see. Please, find Lady Teresa. I know she's alive somewhere. Best of luck to you. I'll do whatever I can to help... I promise."

"He was like, My Prince Charming... Oh, I wish you could have BEEN there!"

"Are you sure you're not just imagining things again...?"

"Of course not. Ohh, those eyes, that smile, the flower of chivalry is not dead... AH!!!"


"It's like a dream! We meet again... But what are you doing here? Ah! Did you come... to see me...?"

"Who are you??"

"Oh, forgive me. My name is Nina. Um, um...I...I wonder if my lord could tell me... his name?"

"H, Hey, wait a second..."

"See? See? This is him! I told you he was handsome, didn't I?"

"Uh, I guess..."

"Hey, hey, Flik, let's go."

"My lord is called Flik? What a wonderful name! If I may be so bold as to ask, whatever is my lord doing here? Y, you couldnt... really be here to see me...?"

"Uh... we're just here to see the school..."

"Then please, let me be your guide! I know this school like the back of my hand! Shall we be off, then, Sir Flik?"

"The boys' room is at the end of the hall on the second floor, and the girls' room is right next to that. Don't mix them up."

"Ooh, ooh, let's go check them out!"

"Listen up, children. Rough-housing in the dorms is not permitted. Also, you will find your rooms spic-and-span, Keep them that way! You may go to your rooms now. You'll be notified at suppertime, so just rest until then."

"Yes, ma'am! Okay, let's go, Riou." ( AGAIN. JESUS, YOU SUCK AT UNDERCOVER. )

"Okay then. We'll rest until they call suppertime. Let's go, Pilika. We're in the next room."

"Oh, it's you guys. I see, so you've become students here. Sir Flik said that he was your escort?"

"You're... Wh, what, what are you doing?"

"Hmm, no problem. Uh... your name was Nanami, right?" ( Okay, I give up. )


"I'm clearly much more beautiful than you. I don't have to worry about you stealing Sir Flik away from me."

". . . . . . . . . . ."

"I'm sure we'll become good friends, then, Nanami."
