Fates Supports/Kiragi Soleil
Kiragi: Soleil! Hey!
Soleil: Oh! Did you need me, Kiragi?
Kiragi: I just had to tell you something! Ready? Here goes... You're tops, Soleil!
Soleil: I'm what?
Kiragi: Tops! The very best! I see what good friends you are with all those girls.
Soleil: Heh, yeah. I like to think I am.
Kiragi: All the guys I know are more into fighting with each other. It's all one big contest to see who can be the toughest man.
Soleil: Oh yeah? Where do you stand in the pecking order?
Kiragi: Welllll...I kinda don't. I always end up trying to make friends instead, heehee.
Soleil: Haha, yeah, that sounds more like you.
Kiragi: But you get along with all the girls, and that makes you amazing! You must be pretty mature and considerate to pull that off.
Soleil: Welllll...that would be one way of doing it... But I'm just really dedicated to hanging out with as many girls as possible. That's all there is to it. Nothing amazing about that.
Kiragi: Oh... Well, it still amazes me at how good you are at seeing how other people feel!
Soleil: That's really nice of you to say. Thanks, Kiragi!
Kiragi: Heehee. Thanks for thanking me!
Soleil: *sigh* I'm taking this even harder than I thought I would. But I need to grin and bear it—literally. If I don't keep a smile on my face, it'll just bring everyone else down! OK, I think I've got it together. Now to keep it up for the rest of the day!
Kiragi: Awww, Soleil...
Soleil: Huh? What's got you down, Kiragi?
Kiragi: I heard the news. One of your friends in the army decided to quit, huh?
Soleil: Word sure travels fast around here.
Kiragi: How come she's leaving?
Soleil: One of her family's sick, and they need her to help care for them. Nothing any of us can do about it except to wish her luck.
Kiragi: Dang. That's a real shame. It must be hard for you, having to say good-bye to a close friend so suddenly. I know what that's like... I'll never see the friends I grew up with in my Deeprealm again, after all.
Soleil: That's rough...
Kiragi: But it won't be that bad for you, right? She's just going home! You can be pen pals. If you keep in touch, I'm sure you'll meet again someday!
Kiragi: I didn't mean to overhear the other stuff you said just now, but I kinda did... About making yourself smile so you don't make anyone worry. It's amazing that you have the strength to do that!
Soleil: Gosh... Thanks, Kiragi. That actually cheered me up a lot! You're right. I'll see her again someday— I know it! Believing that will make it easier for me to see her go.
Kiragi: That's the spirit!
Soleil: The cloud over my head clears right up with you cheering me on. I feel like I could take on the world!
Kiragi: Yeah! Hahaha! Let's see that sunny smile!
Soleil: Of course!
Soleil: Thanks again for cheering me up the other day, Kiragi.
Kiragi: Don't mention it. I'm glad to see you looking chipper again.
Soleil: I wanted to ask you, though... You said you miss your friends from the Deeprealm. How did you get over that?
Kiragi: Well, only one thing TO do. I worked as hard as I could at making new friends!
Soleil: New friends...
Kiragi: I miss the old ones a lot, and I get sad when I think about them, but... My new friends are so great, I can't complain!
Soleil: Not many people could be as positive as you about it. Do you think I could be like that, if I practiced?
Kiragi: I know you could! Besides, don't you see what a perfect chance this is?
Soleil: A chance to do what?
Kiragi: Sure, you had to say good-bye to someone you cared about. But! Bonding over that helped you and me to become better friends, right?
Soleil: Huh! That's a good way of looking at it.
Kiragi: Heehee. I hope we'll be friends for a long, long time.
Soleil: Yeah...same here. Thanks for being such a good buddy, Kiragi.
Kiragi: Soleil! Wait up! I gotta talk to you.
Kiragi: I've been thinking about this for a while. And something finally clicked with me, and I gotta get it out.
Kiragi: You know I think you're amazing, right? Gosh, I've said it a hundred times probably. And you know how much I love being friends with you.
Soleil: I...I sense a "but" coming...
Kiragi: No way! Soleil, I have to tell you—I'm crazy about you!
Soleil: I like you a lot too!
Kiragi: Maybe it's our friendship getting deeper. Or maybe that's why I wanted to be friends with you to begin with. Either way, I care about you a whole lot.
Soleil: Wow, Kiragi! I care about you a lot, too. I've always thought of you as one of my best friends.
Soleil: In a different way than the girls, too. You don't make my heart race faster like they do... But you always cheer me up and support me, and you're just nice to be around. I think about you a lot, trying to come up with ways to make you feel like that too.
Kiragi: Haha, you don't have to think that hard. I already feel that way with you!
Soleil: It's a nice feeling, isn't it?
Soleil: I don't think that's ever going to change. As far as I'm concerned, you'll ALWAYS be my best buddy.
Kiragi: Yessss! I'm SO glad to hear you say that! And I'll always be yours too, of course.
Soleil: You and me, Kiragi. Friends forever!
