Fates Supports/Elise Effie
Elise: Effie! Let's go for a walk!
Effie: *munch munch*
Elise: Effiiiie! Are you eating again?
Effie: I'm sorry. I can't help it. I just never feel full...
Elise: It's because you train too much! You've gotta take it easy sometimes.
Effie: But I can't get stronger if I don't train.
Elise: I wouldn't worry about that. I think you're plenty strong already.
Effie: One mustn't neglect one's responsibilities, Lady Elise. I need to be strong enough to protect you from anything.
Elise: Aww, that's sweet! But I still think you might be overdoing it. Besides, doesn't eating all that food make it harder for you to move in an emergency?
Effie: Oh, yes. In fact, I'm having trouble moving right now.
Elise: What?! Does that mean we can't go for a walk now?
Effie: Don't worry. You can just roll me on my side instead.
Elise: *sigh* No, it's OK. We'll walk together some other day...
Effie: HUH! HAH! HOO-WAH! HYAH!
Elise: Effie! Will you put me down now? Pleeease? I don't wanna be your dumbbell anymore!
Effie: Awww, but you're the perfect weight... OK. I'll set you down. Watch your feet, milady.
Elise: No need to be so formal, Effie! It's just the two of us.
Effie: Yes, milad—er, OK, Elise.
Elise: Heehee. Say, do you remember how we met?
Effie: Of course I do. You snuck out of the castle and came to play in the underground city.
Elise: Yep! I was sick of being in that stuffy old castle. I wanted to make a new friend! A real one.
Effie: I'd never have guessed that muddy little girl was our princess.
Elise: If we hadn't gone back up to the capital, you probably never woulda found out, huh? It's weird to think about what might have happened...
Effie: Yes. It would have changed the entire course of my life. But we did go up, and those guards found us. I tried so hard to protect you, but they were too much for me. I was only a child... I might have been locked away forever if you hadn't told them who you were.
Elise: Heehee. Yeah, we sure showed them! They got sooooooo scared!
Effie: That was the day I swore I'd protect you for the rest of my life. No matter what.
Elise: Yup! I remember it like it was yesterday. Thank you for always being there for me, Effie!
Elise: The world's a strange place, isn't it?
Effie: Hm? Why do you say that?
Elise: Well, if it wasn't, we wouldn't be together like this! If things had turned out just a li'l different, I'd never have seen you again after we met. I knew the guards wouldn't let me sneak out again after they found out who I was.
Effie: Yes. It's not often that the lives of commoners and princesses overlap.
Elise: I was so shocked when I saw you at the castle in full uniform! To think you were the same girl I'd met in town... I knew then and there that we'd be friends forever!
Effie: I kept remembering your face on the day we met. To have snuck out of the castle and gone all that way on your own... I knew I had to spend my life protecting that brave, sweet girl. I knew to do that I'd have to join the castle guard. So I trained as hard as I could. I lifted boulders beneath waterfalls, and I swam upstream through the rapids. I even went hunting with nothing but my bare hands.
Elise: Really?! Yikes, I didn't know that part...
Effie: But it was because of those hardships that I earned the honor of being your retainer. I feel only gratitude for the pain I suffered. It made me strong.
Elise: It really did! You're the strongest person I've ever known, Effie! Thank you so much. For everything!
Effie: Heehee. No need to thank me.
Elise: I promise, I'll never let us get separated again! No matter what!
Effie: Thank you, milady. And I promise to protect you until the end of time. I am so glad we met.
Elise: Me too!
