Ephraim & Myrrh

C Support

Myrrh: …Ephraim.
Ephraim: Myrrh! I’m happy to see you. You’re still so young. Don’t push yourself too hard today, all right?
Myrrh: I won’t… I have a favor to ask. Do you have time for me?
Ephraim: What is it, Myrrh?
Myrrh: …
Ephraim: Don’t be nervous, Myrrh. You can ask me anything.
Myrrh: Ephraim… May I call you… “brother”?
Ephraim: Wha… What? Myrrh… What’s come over you?
Myrrh: …I was watching you and Eirika together. You looked so close.
Ephraim: Of course we’re close. She is my sister, after all.
Myrrh: I envy her. I…wish that I had a brother like you. That’s why I ask… Even if just for this journey… Please be my brother.
Ephraim: I don’t know what to say… I wasn’t expecting you to ask anything like that…
Myrrh: No…? I’m sorry. I should not have asked…
Ephraim: Oh… No, Myrrh… Wait. I’m not saying no.
Myrrh: So, it’s all right?
Ephraim: Uhhh… Sure. Of course. If it will make you happy.
Myrrh: Yes… It does. I’ll come speak with you again soon…Brother.
Ephraim: Oh, my… Eirika… Myrrh… How can I say no to that look? I guess sisters are my weakness.

Myrrh: Hello…Big Brother.
Ephraim: … Myrrh, don’t you find that to be a little awkward?
Myrrh: …Is it?
Ephraim: I mean… You’re a dragon, correct? And if I’m right, you’re also far older than I am…
Myrrh: That’s correct… So, should I be your big sister?
Ephraim: Well, that doesn’t seem right, either. You look so much younger than I do. That would be odd…
Myrrh: I am…very old. Perhaps “mother”? I…don’t like “grandmother.”
Ephraim: …Let’s not dwell on this. “Sister” will be fine. Well. Did you have something you wanted to ask me?
Myrrh: I did… You see, Brother, I have a favor to ask of you.
Ephraim: Yes?
Myrrh: In the forest…I was always with my father. Even when I slept, he was there, watching over me.
Ephraim: Yes?
Myrrh: So…Brother. Would you…stay with me at night and watch over me?
Ephraim: No! Myrrh, I understand your insecurity, but this simply is not acceptable. Especially when we are on the march.
Myrrh: …
Ephraim: Oh, don’t look so sad. When you see Eirika next, why don’t you ask her? I’m sure she will agree. If you and I are brother and sister, then surely you and she are sisters, too. How does that sound?
Myrrh: Yes… I’ll do that. Thank you, Brother.

Ephraim: Hey, Myrrh… When this war is over… What will you do? Have you thought about where you will go?
Myrrh: … I’ve lived in Darkling Woods ever since I was a child. I think that I shall spend the rest of my life there.
Ephraim: On your own? Do you have anyone waiting for you in the forest?
Myrrh: I… I am on my own now. But you need not worry. I am a dragon, after all.
Ephraim: … I’ve been thinking, Myrrh. If you would like, you can live with us in Renais.
Myrrh: What?
Ephraim: When this war is over… When we restore peace to Magvel… Eirika and I will be going back to Renais to lead our people. Would you like to live in the castle? With us?
Myrrh: Oh, but… I would not want to inconvenience you.
Ephraim: It’s nothing you need worry about. Castle Renais is a vast place. I’m sure we could spare a room for a small girl like you. And besides, you are my sister, right? Family should stay together, don’t you think?
Myrrh: … But…you must not forget that I am a dragon. I must think about it. I would love to, but… perhaps I shouldn’t, and so… I must think about it.
Ephraim: As you wish.
Myrrh: But… Thank you for the offer. It makes me very happy. Thank you, Brother.
