Fates Supports/Asugi Midori
Asugi: Hm? Something wrong, Doc?
Midori: Huh? Oh, not really. This herb here just reminded me of something. Father and Uncle Saizo argued about it once.
Asugi: Argued? Over a plant?
Midori: Yeah. They couldn't agree on how it was best applied. One said you should boil it and drink the tea. The other said to apply it directly. It started just as shouting, but it turned into a huge fistfight.
Asugi: They fought in front of you? Hmph. What children.
Midori: Right? I'm glad we're not like that, Asugi.
Asugi: Haha. Me too. Means I get free doses of that sugary vitamin tonic you always make.
Midori: Hey! I was being serious!
Asugi: Hahaha. Don't worry. I'm only kidding.
Midori: Hmpf! Too late! I'm not making any more of that stuff for you.
Asugi: H-hey now, let's not get any crazy ideas! I'm sorry! Really! I didn't mean it! Please... Just a little bit...
Midori: Teehee. Fiiiiine! You really might want to work on that sweet tooth of yours, though. It's not good for you to be eating all that sugar!
Asugi: Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! Come to papa! *glug glug glug*
Midori: You should slow down. I know it's sweet, but it's still some pretty potent medicine... If you drink too much, you're going to get sick.
Asugi: Uh-huh, got it! Later!
Midori: I've got a bad feeling about this...
Midori: Are you OK?! I heard you were sick!
Asugi: Y-yeah. Just a bit...under the— *blorchhh* Haahhhh... Hahhhh... Under the weather...
Midori: Ooh. Black vomit. That's not a good sign... Wait! I recognize those chunks! Did you drink too much of my tonic?!
Asugi: M-maybe. ...Yeah. OK. I did— Oh gods, not again—
Midori: You big dummy! I told you it'd make you sick.
Midori: Most medicine is poisonous in high enough amounts, Asugi... You should know this. Shouldn't Saizo have taught you better?
Asugi: You'd think...he'd have done...a lot of things...better. *pant* Hnnnnnffff.
Midori: Hmm... Hey! I've got an idea! I'm gonna start making you some real sweets!
Asugi: Huh? Wh-why?
Midori: Because! It's my responsibility to make sure my patient is taken care of.
Asugi: What? Not by giving them candy...
Midori: Mhm! Because I have to make sure you'll take the right amount of medicine! So I'll just make some candy that tastes the same as the tonic. Then you can gorge yourself on the candy without any side effects!
Asugi: I guess that would work, but— Hhhhfjffhbgraaaahbhgh! ...Is that...a piece...of my liver...?
Midori: OK! I'll go whip up a batch ASAP!
Asugi: OK... Thanks.
Midori: Hey, Asugi...
Asugi: What's with the waterworks, Doc? You don't look so good... Huh? And what's that you got there? Bringing someone some medicine?
Midori: No...this is the candy I made for you.
Asugi: Wh-why is it black?! Are those fish scales? Er—I mean, it looks...neat! Look at how cute those blue fuzzies growing on it are! And that purple slime! I bet it's grape flavored! Am I right?
Midori: It's lemon flavored... I'm sorry, Asugi. I thought making candy would be easy. I mean, it's sort of like making medicine, right? But...not enough, I guess. I ruined your gift. I'm a terrible friend.
Asugi: Yeah, candy making isn't for the faint of heart. There's an art to it. You shouldn't underestimate the difficulty of making something just 'cause kids like it.
Midori: I know, I know! I tried really hard though, OK?
Asugi: Haha. OK, OK. I'm sorry. I won't lecture you about it. But I appreciate the thought. It's very sweet of you. Get it? Sweet? Heh heh heh.
Midori: Yeah, yeah, I gotcha, you big dork. You're welcome.
Asugi: Now, let's see how these taste! *chomp chomp*
Midori: Oh no! Asugi, you don't have to do that!
Asugi: *munch munch* Hm... Well, this is certainly unique.
Asugi: Yeah. In a good way. It's not bad. And you can taste the love worked into it. If you practice enough, I'm sure you'll be making world-famous candy in no time!
Midori: Really? Do you think you could teach me?
Asugi: Sure, why not. How about we try another batch tomorrow?
Midori: OK! Thank you so much!
Midori: Asugi! Are we making more candy today?
Asugi: Not today, Doc. Today, I've got a gift for you.
Midori: Ooh, really? What is it?
Asugi: It's called Ring Candy. They say when two people share it, they'll be close forever. And so...I thought it would be nice to share some with you, Midori.
Midori: R-really? Are you sure?
Asugi: Of course I am. You're my best friend. And I want us to be that way forever. Long as you keep making me that tonic, I mean. Haha.
Midori: Asugi...be serious for once.
Asugi: I just thought...you're always looking out for me. Making sure I'm not hurt. Whenever I return from a mission, you're there with your apothecary's pack ready. I don't go five minutes after getting cut without you putting a poultice on the thing. It's...nice. And I want you to know that I want to look after you too. I'll always be here to protect you. No matter what.
Midori: And I'll always be there to heal you up! Thank you, Asugi.
Asugi: Now, eat up! To us, forever!
