Fates Supports/Mozu 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!
Mozu: Now hold your horses, Kiragi!
Kiragi: Yikes! H-hey, Mom. You sure are good at sneaking these days.
Mozu: Wipe that nasty look off your face.
Kiragi: Sorry. You look like you're about to attack!
Mozu: What do you think you're doing, darling? Don't you remember me telling you to stay home today? Those books ain't gonna read themselves. *sigh* What am I gonna do with you...
Kiragi: I'm sorry... I promise I'll do some work as soon as I get home, OK?
Mozu: No way, you can't fool me! You're always tuckered out when you come home from hunting.
Kiragi: B-but I don't want to study. I'm awful at math and history.
Mozu: Oh, I know. That's why you need to devote more time to hitting the books!
Kiragi: I can survive being bad at a few subjects. I don't see what the big deal is...
Mozu: You're missing the point. It's important to round out your education. I know I'm partly to blame for not being there when you were young... But that's why it's really important to work harder now so you can catch up!
Mozu: Can you balance out your hunting time with some studying? I'll even help teach 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 mother, but you can't force me to do anything! I'm going hunting, and I don't care whether you like it or not.
Mozu: Ack! Kiragi, come back!! Well, shoot. That didn't go well...
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 tracker.
Mozu: Hmm. Maybe I should reword that one...
Kiragi: It looks like she's writing something. What is she doing?
Mozu: I bet it would be easier for him if we changed it to rabbits in a trap... Yeah, that would be better.
Mozu: Oh shoot! I forgot to find the history book with the better timeline. Looks like I'll have to run into town to find an updated copy tomorrow.
Kiragi: Geez, she's working really hard.
Mozu: Kiragi just has to get used to studying. We need to work on his memory. I know he can catch up. He just needs me to encourage him!
Kiragi: Hello, Mom.
Mozu: Oh, Kiragi. Welcome home. Why are you standing there like a zombie?
Kiragi: I-I'm sorry, Mom. You're putting so much energy into helping me learn, and I keep running off to hunt. I'm really sorry.
Mozu: Kiragi, hey now. It's OK, darling. I'm not mad at you. I'm glad that we understand each other. But would you mind spending a little less time hunting and a bit more studying?
Kiragi: You bet I will! I didn't realize how much this mattered until I saw you just now. Please, teach me! I want to learn about math and history!
Mozu: Well let's get going right away! You ready to start?
Kiragi: OK! But wait, I'm totally covered in mud. Let me change real quick—then we can start! Wait right here!
Mozu: Thanks a million, Kiragi!
Kiragi: All right! I solved it! Take that, math problem!
Mozu: Which one? Let me take a gander... Well your answer is right. But I'm not sure how you got to it...
Kiragi: Ah, 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.
Mozu: Well aren't you clever!
Mozu: Your history assignment is perfect too. All the years, places, and important events are in the right spots.
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!
Mozu: That's real sweet. But you're the one putting in all the hard work. I'm real proud of you, darling!
Kiragi: Stop, Mom! You're going to make me blush.
Mozu: So we've already run through everything I needed to teach you today. Say, why don't you go and enjoy some hunting time?
Kiragi: Um... Hmm... Thanks, but that's all right.
Kiragi: I mean, hunting is great and all. But... I'd love to study some more with you.
Mozu: Kiragi, are you sure?
Kiragi: You made me understand that learning can be such a blast! I can't believe that I used to dread it. We can keep going, right?
Mozu: Well of course we can, darling. Spending all this time together is a whole mess of fun!
Kiragi: It sure is!
