Fates Supports/Elise Nina(PC)
Nina: Mmm...that was really something. The way those men were chatting like old friends... What could they have been talking about? The mind wanders...
Elise: Hi there, Nina!
Nina: Gah! Mother?! What are you doing here? I thought you were training! You didn't hear me talking about...stuff... Did you?
Elise: Hmm? Like what?
Nina: Nope! Don't worry about it! Whew...
Elise: Oh, good news, though! I was cleaning up a bit, and I just finished with your room!
Nina: Mother! That's my private space.
Elise: You had a bunch of books under your bed, but I put them on your desk for you.
Nina: Oh my gods, oh my gods, oh my gods... PLEASE tell me you didn't open any of those books...
Elise: Don't be silly! I almost never open a book if I can help it.
Nina: My diaries and journals, Mother! Did you read them or didn't you?
Elise: Oh, those! Nope, I didn't peek. I mean, maybe a little bit, to get an idea of which stack to put them in. But definitely nothing past the first few pages! Or so.
Nina: What's that supposed to mean? It sounds like you DID read them! Well? Did you or didn't you? ARRRRGH!
Nina: *sigh* Why does it have to be so difficult...
Elise: Gosh, that sigh... You must be dealing with something heavy, Nina.
Nina: Oh...hi, Mother. I...I dunno.
Elise: Tell me! Tell me! I wanna see if I can help you stop moping around!
Nina: Well, I suppose things can't get any worse... I...I have a hard time talking to guys. But I think about them all the time! I feel like such a freak. Like they know that I'm thinking about them... And I just clam up and turn red. It's so awful!
Elise: Awww. Don't worry, you're not the only one who gets tongue-tied!
Nina: Ugh, you don't understand! When I finally manage to stammer a few words out... I start acting super mean and creepy for no reason! I need to change. But I don't know how...
Elise: If you didn't know you were doing it, it would be hard. But you do, so it should be easy! Before you talk to anyone, take a second to think about how you want to act. Before too long, it'll be second nature!
Nina: You really think so?
Elise: Yep! It'll take practice, but I'm positive you'll get it eventually!
Nina: Thanks, Mother. I actually feel a little bit better.
Elise: Glad to help, honey! It did seem like you could use some, going by those journals...
Nina: Wait, so you DID read them? AGHHH! I'm going to DIEEEEEE!
Nina: Hey, Mother. Guess what? I talked to a guy today, and it wasn't weird at all!
Elise: That's great! Good for you. Tell me all about it!
Nina: Well, it was pretty basic as far as talking goes. I just gave him directions. But I didn't say anything weird or run away randomly!
Elise: It's a good start!
Nina: Right? I've been giggling about it all afternoon.
Elise: Keep that up, and you'll be a real chatterbox! Then you can graduate to hosting parties on your own! That'll be more fun than your other hobbies, right?
Nina: I thought we agreed to never speak of...my hobbies...ever again!
Elise: Sorry! I didn't mean to poke a sore spot. You shouldn't be ashamed, though! Those were some super-neat stalking strategies you came up with!
Nina: How many of my diaries did you read, Mother? Jeez!
Elise: A bunch! Avatar and I like to trade off and read the best parts to each other.
Nina: WHAT?! Why would you do that? WHY?
Elise: We're fascinated by what a good spy you are! Avatar has some ideas about using your journals as training manuals. We'll have the best spy division in the whole world!
Nina: Great. Now everyone will know what a huge freak I am. Thanks, Mother.
Elise: Awww, Nina. I'll love you no matter how weird your hobbies are! Now come gimme a hug!
