Fates Supports/Elise Kiragi(PC)
Kiragi: Ah, the great outdoors. What a perfect day to do some hunting! The mountains look very appealing... But I did see a lot of game in that field the other day. So many choices!
Elise: Stop right there, Kiragi!
Kiragi: Yikes! H-hey, Mom. You sure are good at sneaking these days.
Elise: Did I scare you?
Kiragi: Obviously. You look like you're about to attack me!
Elise: That's because you're out here, and you absolutely shouldn't be. What am I going to do with you...
Kiragi: I'm really sorry. I promise I'll do it as soon as I get home tonight, OK?
Elise: I've heard that too many times before. Every time you get back from hunting, you just grab something to eat and go to bed. Not this time.
Kiragi: B-but I'm so terrible at math, and no good at history!
Elise: Which is exactly why you need to devote more time to practicing. I already told you that I would help with your studies.
Kiragi: I can survive being bad at math and history. I don't see what the big deal is.
Elise: Kiragi, there is bad, and then there is abysmal. You are beyond abysmal. Your father and I should have realized that much sooner, and we're sorry. But now that we are all together again, we want to do everything we can to assist you. I know it doesn't seem like it, but this will be so good for you!
Elise: Let's go home. I know hunting is more fun, but some day you'll thank me for pushing you.
Kiragi: No! This isn't fair! Hunting is the only thing I have to look forward to! Don't try and take that away from me. You may be my mom, but you can't force me to do anything! I'm going hunting, and I don't care whether you like it or not!
Elise: Kiragi, get back here! Well that could have gone better...
Kiragi: What an amazing day! No one will be going hungry anytime soon. That bird sure gave me a lot of trouble. I should look it up when I get home. Maybe I need to build some new traps, too.
Kiragi: OK, careful. Easy does it... I can't let Mom know that I was out hunting instead of resting. "Work harder on your studies!" That's all she ever thinks about... Like I need math or history to be a good hunter.
Elise: Hmm. No, that's unrelated. Maybe if I rewrite it like this...
Kiragi: What's this? It looks like she's writing something down.
Elise: Instead of using just numbers, we can change these to rabbits in a trap... I bet that would help him understand.
Kiragi: What is she doing there?
Elise: Oh, rats! Where did I stick that book? I know it's around here somewhere. I need to track it down so I can start his history lessons.
Kiragi: Geez, she's working really hard.
Elise: He just hasn't had to memorize things. If we move slowly and cover everything... I know that he'll catch on soon enough.
Kiragi: Hey, Mom.
Elise: Oh! Welcome home, Kiragi. Why are you just standing there?
Kiragi: You knew I wasn't here?
Elise: Of course. You forgot to close the bedroom door when you left.
Kiragi: Oh, I did? Oops. I just wanted to say... Well, I'm sorry, Mom. You're putting so much energy into helping me learn, and then I just run off to hunt. I'm really sorry.
Elise: Shhh, it's all right, Kiragi. It's important that we both understand where the other is coming from. I know that hunting is your passion. I just want you to balance that with some studying too!
Kiragi: I will! I didn't really realize how much this mattered until I saw you just now. Please, teach me! I want to learn about math and history!
Elise: Do you really mean it? That makes me so happy. Would you like to get started?
Kiragi: OK! But wait. I'm totally covered in mud. Let me change real quick—then we can start! Wait right here!
Kiragi: All right! I solved it! Take that, math problem!
Elise: Hang on, let me check your work. Hmm. The answer is right, but...
Kiragi: Oh, yeah... I know you normally start on the right... But if you make an assumption here, you can skip a bunch of extra calculations! I think the book called it an advanced method, but it wasn't that tough.
Elise: An advanced method? Great job, Kiragi!
Elise: Looks like your history assignment is perfect too. All the years, places, and important events are in the correct spots. You didn't miss a thing. I'm so proud!
Kiragi: It was so much easier once I started thinking of them as fantastic stories. Boring random facts are so much harder to remember. And it helps to have a great teacher, too!
Elise: I only encouraged you. All of this progress is because of you. You've come so far because of all this hard work.
Kiragi: Stop, Mom! You're going to make me blush.
Elise: That's all I had for you to cover today. It's still nice and sunny. Why don't you run and do some hunting?
Kiragi: Ehh, that's all right.
Kiragi: I mean, hunting is great and all. But... I'd love to study some more with you.
Elise: Aww, really?
Kiragi: You made me understand that studying can be so much fun! I can't believe that I used to dread it. We can keep going, right?
Elise: Sure! It makes me happy to spend all this time together.
Kiragi: Me too!
