Support conversations- Ninian and Florina
Ninian: Ahh...Dame Florina...
Florina: You know... You really
donít have to call me that. You can just call me Florina.
Ninian: Oh... All right... Miss
Florina. Say, Miss Florina, youíre from Ilia, right?
Florina: Um, yes. Ninian, you
know about Ilia?
Ninian: Yes... There are white
mountains covered with snow, and... I was, um...born there.
Florina: Y-You were? Wow...you
and I are from the same place, then. Thatís funny...I feel so much
closer to you now... Well, we should definitely talk more...
Ninian: Sure, that would be
Florina: Um, Ninian...?
Ninian: Yes? What is it, Miss
Florina: Can I... Can I ask you
for some advice?
Ninian: You want to ask me for
advice? What about?
Florina: Well, you see, I...
Iím really bad at talking to men... And I canít 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?
Ninian: Well... I feel like you
sort of... picked the wrong person to ask... I donít think Iím really
all that good at talking to people either...
Florina: Oh...all right... I
just thought... You know, youíre just so easy to talk to...
Ninian: Well, I feel the same
Florina: So then... We can
count on each other as friends from now on, right?
Ninian: Yes... absolutely!
Florina: So, Ninian, where in
Ilia were you born? Because... I was born in Edessa. Thatís where the
Pegasi gather...at the spring of Pyrene.
Ninian: I... I am not so good
at geography... But it was near the tallest mountain in Ilia.
Florina: You mean the mountain
of the Ice Dragon?
Ninian: ...Ice Dragon?
Florina: Yes. A long time ago,
there was a tall mountain where an ice dragon lived. Donít you know the
Ninian: Iím sorry, I donít...
Iíve been traveling for a long time with my brother, and...
Florina: Oh...I see... Well, a
long time ago, there was an ice dragon in Ilia. And this kind dragon
helped the people of Ilia, who had trouble living in snow year round.
But a war broke out between dragons and people... And the kind dragons,
not wanting to hurt the humans, went off to a faraway place.
Florina: My sister first told
me that story as a child to make me go to bed... Even now, every year,
the people in that area make an offering to the mountain... When I was
little, I so wanted to meet the ice dragon that I braved the cold and
waited all night next to the place of offering... But I saw dawn the
next morning, and the dragon never came... Then I caught a cold and my
sister got very upset with me...
Ninian: ...You waited all
night? Miss Florina... Werenít you afraid of the dragon?
Florina: Afraid? Why?
Ninian: Doesnít everyone think
that dragons are terrifying, man-eating beasts? I mean, how could two
different species ever get along?
Florina: It doesnít matter what
species you are... Look at me. My pegasus and I are of different
Ninian: Yeah, I guess so...
Florina: Pegasi are all very
shy around humans... But Iím kind of that way, too... At first this
sweet mare and I were so afraid of each other... It didnít go so
well... But we played together, and swam together... And soon, we began
to understand each other... And thatís how we became friends... So even
if two beings may be shaped a little differently... That doesnít mean
they canít get along.
Ninian: I see... Yeah, you must
be right! I mean...we get along, donít we?
