C Support

Louise: …Eek!
Heath: Ah! Excuse me! Are you hurt?!
Louise: No, I’m fine… I was just flustered by the wind. Don’t worry.
Heath: ……
Louise: …Uhh. Are you OK?
Heath: …Hm? Oh, yes! So…why is a young woman like you on a battlefield? I was just wondering…
Louise: Ha ha ha. I am not so young anymore. I am the wife of a lord.
Heath: A…lord? …Ah, forgive my presumption, milady!
Louise: Oh, I don’t mind! I am Countess Reglay. Lady Louise, if you will. But please…treat me as you would anyone else.
Heath: Oh! I am Heath! I am no longer with Bern’s knights, but I have confidence in my skill.
Louise: Heath, I hope we have the chance someday to fight side by side! And now, I take my leave…
Heath: … So that was Marchioness Wrigley?

Heath: Lady Louise!
Louise: Ah, Heath! How do you fare?
Heath: Well, milady. Ah… Might I be of any assistance to you, milady? If I may be so bold… I would proudly offer my services.
Louise: You may not be so bold, sir.
Heath: Pardon?
Louise: Your generosity is commendable, sir, but are you not sworn to the service of another?
Heath: Ah, yes, milady…but…
Louise: But? I am a noblewoman, who needs must be protected at all times, is that what you were thinking?
Heath: Ahh, yes…
Louise: Well, sir… If you wish to remain in my grace, you will cease all such foolish thoughts!
Heath: …But why? I am a knight! I must protect women and nobles whenever I can, even if they are not my liege lord! Are you saying that fulfilling my duty is not proper? That it is an affront to you!?
Louise: You must forgive me… However… I am a soldier in this army just like you. In other words, we are partners… But if you insist on giving me special treatment… Then I will have to assume it is because you do not trust me.
Heath: L-Lady Louise! I could never think such a thing! Your precision with the bow is the talk of the camp! …The mere thought that my words could offend you makes flames spring from my brow! Please forgive my arrogance!
Louise: Heath… It is I who have offended with my selfishness… I apologize. Will you forgive me?
Heath: Forgive you? But I could never find fault with you! I could not betray my honor with such discourtesy!
Louise: I see… Well, my lord is calling me… I must go to him. But, Heath, we will continue this conversation.
Heath: Please do not trouble yourself over me. Return to your lord, Lady Louise.
Louise: There is no need for honorifics. We are friends. Please. From now on, call me Louise.
Heath: But–
Louise: Promise.
Heath: …Yes…mi–Louise.
