Fates Supports/Kiragi Selkie
Kiragi: Selkie! Let's go to the lake today!
Selkie: OK! Sounds good to me!
Kiragi: Wanna make it a race? Whoever gets to the really tall cedar first wins! Winner gets the game of the loser! You in?
Selkie: The game?
Kiragi: Yeah, game. Like, the stuff we hunted earlier.
Selkie: Oh, OK. Got it!
Kiragi: OK. On your mark! Get set... Go!
Kiragi: Haaaaaaaa...haaaaa... *wheeze*
Selkie: *pant* *pant* Did...I win? Or did...you beat me?
Kiragi: Hmmm... *huff* *puff* I think...we got here...at the same time. So it's...a tie?
Selkie: Aww. Then what should we do about the prizes?
Kiragi: Well, since we both won, how about we just exchange all the game we caught today?
Selkie: Haha! Yeah, I guess that works! Huh? Wait.
Kiragi: Selkie? What's wrong?
Selkie: Hey, Kiragi...take a look. Over there. There are people. Four, five...looks like there are six of them.
Kiragi: Yeah. What are they doing out in the middle of the forest?
Selkie: I dunno. Let's ask them! HEE— Mmmmph! Kiragi, what's the big deal? Why did you put your hand over my mouth?!
Kiragi: Something's strange about this.
Selkie: Oh... Like what?
Kiragi: I don't know. Something about them just doesn't look right. The sun is going to set soon. Let's head back...
Kiragi: Selkie? Selkiiiiiiiie? Could she have gotten lost? Wait! Is that— It's those guys we saw the other day! I wonder what they're up to... Maybe I should get a closer look. Oh, no... They have Selkie.
Ruffian: Hmph. I was beginning to second-guess my information. But I guess they were right. There are kitsune in these woods after all. You put up a pretty good fight, I'll give you that. But playtime's over. Time to be quiet. I wonder what kind of price you'll fetch... A high one, I'd wager.
Selkie: Mmmpf! Mmmpf!
Kiragi: HEY! Leave her alone!
Ruffian: Huh?! A little hero, eh? Get him, men!
(fade to black)
Kiragi: Selkie! Selkie! Are you OK?
Selkie: Y-yeah, I'm fine. Thanks for saving me.
Kiragi: Just hold on. I'll get you out of these ropes.
Selkie: Kiragi...I'm so sorry.
Kiragi: It's all right. Don't worry. They won't be bothering you anymore, OK? Now, let's go home.
Selkie: O-OK. Let's go...
Kiragi: Hey, Selkie! Ready to go on another hike in the woods?
Selkie: Um, sure. OK.
Kiragi: Something wrong?
Selkie: Just...what happened the other day. When those thugs captured me. It's not that it was too scary or anything. I've been in worse situations. It's just...I let my guard down. I ate the food they offered me without a thought. Even though you said those people looked suspicious before. I'm such an idiot!
Kiragi: Don't worry, Selkie. It's OK. They can't hurt you now.
Selkie: I know, I know. I'm not scared of them. I'm just...disappointed in myself. I need to be more careful in the future. I can't just keep trusting everyone I meet.
Kiragi: No! You shouldn't change who you are. Especially not on account of a bunch of thugs like that.
Selkie: What? But I'll just cause more problems for everyone if I let myself get fooled again!
Kiragi: No, the people who cause problems are the ones like the guys who tricked you. Never blame yourself for that, OK? It wasn't your fault. And anyway, I think one of the best things about you is that you're so trusting!
Kiragi: And if anyone tries to take advantage of you again, I'll be there to stop them.
Selkie: Haha! Really? You'd do that for me?
Kiragi: Yup! Of course!
Selkie: Thank you, Kiragi! You're the best!
Selkie: Hey, Kiragi! Let's go play in the woods again today!
Kiragi: Huh? Um...OK.
Selkie: Huh? Is something wrong? You look like you've got a case of the gloom-glooms.
Kiragi: Well...after I said I'd protect you the other day, it got me thinking. I started to wonder why I didn't just protect you better in the first place. If I had been with you...
Selkie: But you came to save me! Like a super- awesome hero from those old stories!
Kiragi: Thanks, but I still can't shake this feeling.
Kiragi: GAHH! OK, OK. I'm gonna do it!
Selkie: Huh?! What's going on? You're going to do what?
Kiragi: I have to tell you something.
Kiragi: Selkie... I love you!
Selkie: I love you too, Kiragi! You're like a brother to me!
Kiragi: Er, I mean, I'm not talking about that kind of love. I mean romantic love. I want to always be by your side!
Selkie: You mean you want to be my...boyfriend?
Kiragi: That's right! And someday, I want to make you my wife! Then I can always be around to protect you, no matter what!
Selkie: Heehee. One thing at a time, Kiragi. But OK! Let's be together!
Kiragi: Whew. I feel so much better having got all that off my chest.
Selkie: Heehee. You think you're feeling happy? Guess how I feel!
