Lyn & Wil

C Support

Wil: Lady Lyndis, are you all right?
Lyn: Wil? You surprised me! What’s the matter?
Wil: I, too, am one of the knights of Caelin, you see… As such, I must protect you as well as I can.
Lyn: Yes, yes of course. And how are you, Wil? Are you unhurt?
Wil: I am quite fine!
Lyn: Wil, you seem much happier now than you did back in the castle. Why is that?
Wil: It might be imprudent of me to say this, but… Something about this kind of expedition excites me! There are so many new things to see!
Lyn: Wil, you are from Pherae, are you not? Tell me…what sort of place is Pherae? It’s under the rule of Eliwood’s house, so I would think it peaceful, perhaps?
Wil: Yes. It is a nice place. It is near the sea, and the smell of the brine rides on the wind. I have not been home in a long time…
Lyn: Your parents are well, yes? Do you write to them often?
Wil: Eh!? Ah… Not that often, no…
Lyn: Well! That won’t do! You should write them at once! That’s an order!

Wil: Dearest Mother and Father, I am sure you are both quite well as I write this… No, that’s not how to begin… Hrm…
Lyn: Wil? What is it? You’ve been mumbling over there for a while…
Wil: L-L-Lady Lyndis!
Lyn: Well, you’d think I was a monster come to eat you! Say, did you ever write that letter?
Wil: Actually, that’s what I was about to do, you see…
Lyn: Wil!
Wil: Ayee! H-Hey! It’s tough, you know! I mean, I haven’t been home in five years. What do I say?
Lyn: Five years!?
Wil: Yes, well, a lot has happened…
Lyn: But when I met you in Bern, didn’t you say you were on your way home?
Wil: Ah… You remember that?
Lyn: Wil!
Wil: C-C’mon, give me a break! Why should I go home? My parents don’t care either way.
Lyn: …Is that true?
Wil: Huh?
Lyn: Nothing. …Sorry for pushing you so.
Wil: Lady Lyndis?

Wil: Lady Lyndis, about that letter…
Lyn: It’s OK. Really, you don’t have to write one.
Wil: I-I must apologize! I didn’t know about your parents… I’m afraid I have been most unforgivably rude!
Lyn: … …
Wil: Actually…I ran away from home. Together, with a friend… Five years ago. We had a plan, the two of us. We’d get lucky, make a fortune. Both our families’d live in happiness. That was our dream… But things didn’t work out that way, of course. My friend went back home after only a month.
Lyn: … …
Wil: I thought I’d never forgive him, you know? How could he do that? He quit halfway… How could he respect himself after that? Of course…I was no better. I wandered for a few years. Finally, I came as far as Bern… But nothing ever changed. I was afraid to tell my parents, afraid they’d find out… After all, I was the one deserving no respect.
Lyn: …Nothing ever changed? I would think that you realizing your own mistake was a big change.
Wil: Lady Lyndis…
Lyn: It’s true, Wil. Sain often told me: “That Wil is such a miser, he’ll not loan me one gold.” “What’s the point in saving all the time? Gold’s to be spent!”
Wil: … …
Lyn: And Kent, too, he said: “Wil is my best student– the most attentive by far.” “He’s driven, that one…” “There’s someone he wants to please by becoming a knight, I can tell.”
Wil: … …
Lyn: Stay in the Knights of Caelin until you’ve reached your goal. But I think your parents would like to hear that you are safe and well… More than seeing you as a knight years from now… or having you bring them mountains of gold…
Wil: Lady Lyndis… I’ll do it. I’ll write them a letter tonight.
Lyn: Yes. And Wil… I’m sorry for pushing you.
Wil: Not at all! I feel like I will owe you until my dying day, Lady Lyndis.
Lyn: Remember, a letter isn’t enough. You need to go home.
Wil: Yes! I will!
