Lilina: Hello, Marcus.
Marcus: Ah, Lady Lilina.
Lilina: The battle is growing bigger all the time… Marcus, do you think Roy will be okay…?
Marcus: Of course, my lady. Master Roy has taken after Lord Eliwood, who was said to be the greatest knight in Lycia.
Lilina: Yes… Lord Eliwood was a great knight.
Marcus: Yes, my lady. And also… Lord Eliwood’s wife, she was a very kind and gentle person. Much like yourself, I might add.
Lilina: Uh… Do you think so?
Marcus: Master Roy is becoming very much like Lord Eliwood. The woman that Roy is seeking would probably be similar to that which Lord Eliwood found love with.
Marcus: My lady, if I may suggest. When you and Master Roy return to Pherae, then you two could…
Lilina: Marcus! Roy and I are friends. Just friends! Marriage… I-It is too soon to be thinking of such things!
Lilina: Marcus, what kind of couple were Lord Eliwood and his wife?
Marcus: Well, my lady, when the two were youths, they were such a happy pair that just looking at them would cheer one up. The people of Pherae were truly happy for them.
Lilina: Wow… That’s nice…
Marcus: Lord Eliwood loved his wife deeply. And one night…before the two became engaged, Lord Eliwood suddenly disappeared from the castle. When he returned to his love three days later, he presented her with a beautiful white flower which only grows in the snowy highlands. It was the flower which she loved the most.
Lilina: Lord Eliwood is so…romantic. Sigh… Now look at Roy…
Marcus: Lady Lilina, is something wrong?
Lilina: Marcus… What does… What does Roy think of me? I… I’m not so sure anymore.
Lilina: Roy, he’s… I’ve always…liked him…for a long time now.
Marcus: Then why not go up to him and find out for yourself, my lady?
Lilina: What…? But…
Marcus: I do not have much experience in matters like this, but I have heard the maids at the castle saying that it is no longer the age that women should be sitting around waiting. Lady Lilina, if you were to advance on to him first, Master Roy would surely fall for you.
Lilina: …… Yes… Yes. I’m the one who’s known him the longest. I can’t lose to those other girls!
Marcus: That’s the spirit, Lady Lilina!
