Eliwood & Ninian

C Support

Ninian: Lord Eliwood…
Eliwood: Ninian.
Ninian: I… I’d like to thank you.
Eliwood: Huh? What is it? Why the formality?
Ninian: Lady Lyn told me… She told me… She told me it was you. You were the one who helped me one year ago.
Eliwood: Oh, that.
Ninian: I apologize. I… I had lost consciousness, and I fear I never properly thanked you, Lord Eliwood.
Eliwood: Don’t let it concern you. I wanted to help.
Ninian: But still–
Eliwood: Hrm… Ah, I know! Next time you are free, show me your dancing! Not one of the little dances–something special.
Ninian: A special dance, my lord?
Eliwood: Er… sorry, didn’t mean to sound too forward!
Ninian: No, not at all! I mean, I’d be glad to.
Eliwood: Great, then it’s a deal! I’m looking forward to it.
Ninian: Y-Yes. I am too.

B Support

Eliwood: In Pherae, every year, we hold a grand harvest festival. Everyone in the land comes to eat, drink, and dance.
Ninian: That sounds like fun!
Eliwood: You should come, too, Ninian. Everyone would be happy to see your dancing, I think. The one you showed me the other day was truly beautiful.
Ninian: Thank you.
Eliwood: My mother, too, loves dancing, you know. She would be pleased. At festival time, she dances all night like a young maiden. My father always clucked his tongue and shook his head, but each year, he would dance with her until the dawn. Ah–
Ninian: … …
Eliwood: Forgive me. You… must think of my father often enough.
Ninian: No… it’s all right. I mean, not compared to you, Lord Eliwood…
Eliwood: Ninian, remember what I told you? My father’s death was not your fault. You should not blame yourself, not at all.
Ninian: But, Lord Eliwood… y-you’re wrong. You don’t know everything that…
Eliwood: What?
Ninian: I… I have been deceiving you.
Eliwood: Deceiving? What do you mean?
Ninian: It is just… I-I’m sorry.
Eliwood: Ninian? Ninian, don’t cry. I don’t know what has happened, but I do know I never want to see you sad.

Eliwood: Ninian.
Ninian: … Lord Eliwood.
Eliwood: I finally caught up with you. What’s wrong, Ninian? Why the long face?
Ninian: Please, do not worry on my account. I… I am not worthy– I am not even worthy to stand in your sight, Lord Eliwood. I have been deceiving you.
Eliwood: Yes, as you were saying before. Ninian… You have been keeping some secret from us?
Ninian: Yes…
Eliwood: But…you can’t tell me what it is. Am I right?
Ninian: …Yes.
Eliwood: Very well.
Ninian: What…?
Eliwood: If it is too hard for you to talk about, I will not force you. Just… if you ever feel able, tell me then.
Ninian: But… I have been false… I have lied to you and the others.
Eliwood: Ninian, I love you. That will not change, no matter what may come.
Ninian: Lord Eliwood…
Eliwood: I don’t care what your secret is– I will still feel the same. If something troubles you, let me sweep it away. Please, don’t cry anymore. I would do anything to see you smile again. You are the first woman I have ever felt this way about, Ninian.
Ninian: Lord Eliwood… I… I don’t know what– Lord Eliwood… Lord Eliwood…
