Fates Supports/Beruka Asugi(PC)
Asugi: Ah, mission accomplished. I got a ton of useful information tonight. Today's undercover work was riskier than usual. I almost got caught this time. "Almost" doesn't count though, heh heh. Time to share what I learned and go relax.
Beruka: You're back.
Asugi: M-Mom?! Shouldn't you be asleep? It's really late.
Beruka: I thought I'd wait for you.
Asugi: I'm fine, Mom. It's an early morning tomorrow. You should be asleep!
Beruka: Couldn't. I was too worried.
Asugi: Look, I get sent out on these recon trips because I'm good at them. We all risk our lives when we're out on our missions, and I'm no different.
Beruka: Solo missions are dangerous, though. Hard to recover from setbacks in those. So until I see you're OK, I worry.
Asugi: I told you, I'm fine. I do what I have to, and that's the end of it. If you stay up all night, you'll just be a liability to all of us tomorrow.
Beruka: That's what you think, hm?
Asugi: Look, it's late. I'm exhausted. We should both get some rest.
Beruka: Later, then.
Asugi: I've successfully infiltrated the enemy base. Piece of cake! (Mmm...cake.) Now to scope out what the leaders here are up to. They've been acting suspicious. If I can just find some evidence that they're planning something...
Beruka: How can I help?
Asugi: WHAA—?! What...? MOM?! What in the name of all that is sweet and holy are you doing here?
Beruka: I followed you.
Asugi: Wh-why would you follow me? This place is dangerous!
Beruka: Especially for a solo agent.
Asugi: You shouldn't be here, Mom. This is MY mission, not yours!
Beruka: Doesn't matter. You have a better chance of success with me here.
Asugi: SHH! Be quiet!
Asugi: Not another word! The enemy patrol is heading this way...
Asugi: *sigh* OK, they're gone. Gods, my heart is racing. I was certain they'd spotted us.
Beruka: I doubt it.
Asugi: Geez, Mom. I know parents like to bond with their kids, but this is overkill!
Beruka: Nonsense. This is what I do when I'm worried about something. I fix it.
Asugi: Ugh, enough is enough. I can't think straight when you're here. This whole mission is a bust. Let's go.
Asugi: Come on, Mom. I know a shortcut back. It's time to go home.
Beruka: No, it isn't. We should be getting started.
Asugi: It's over. Come on, let's hurry back.
Beruka: What's the plan for tonight?
Asugi: ... WE are not going anywhere. You're not coming along.
Beruka: Yes, I am. End of discussion.
Asugi: Mom, you're being unreasonable. Don't you trust me?
Beruka: What's unreasonable is you being sent on mission after mission, alone. It makes sense that I'd want to help you out of a bad situation.
Asugi: We each have our own part to play in this war, Mom. I'm a ninja, so I fulfill the roles that my training has prepared me for. When you follow me, it puts us both in very real danger. Instead of focusing on the mission, I can only think of protecting you.
Beruka: Are you saying...it's wrong to worry about you?
Beruka: It makes me very uncomfortable to think of what might happen to you. I...don't know what a mother is supposed to be like. Am I doing it wrong?
Asugi: Mom... Look, this is embarrassing, so I'm only going to say it once.
Beruka: Go on.
Asugi: When I got back from my mission that one night and I saw you waiting up for me... I was really happy.
Asugi: It made me realize that I had a real home to come back to. Knowing you're out there, waiting for me, makes me desperate to make it back home. No matter how much danger I'm in or what I have to do to make it back safely... I always will. I will always, always come back home to you.
Asugi: That's why I need you to stay here. My home is wherever YOU are. I can't do what I do without knowing that I have a loving home waiting for me. As long as you're here, safe and happy, I'll never lose heart.
Beruka: Hmm. OK. I see what you mean. The mothering thing is new to me. I thought I needed to help you. But if you're telling me it would be better for me to stay home, I'll do that.
Asugi: Mom... Thank you. You don't know what that means to me.
Beruka: I'll stay on lookout here so you have a safe place to come home to. And I can try making food for you, too. So you're not hungry after a mission.
Asugi: That...would be AMAZING!
Beruka: Heh. If I remember right, you like sweets. I'll try my hand at those. I love you, Asugi. Even if I'm not always great at showing it.
Asugi: Thanks, Mom. I love you too.
