Fates Supports/Niles Charlotte
Niles: Hello there, Charlotte. You seem to be bathing in the attention of people, as usual. Has anything rewarding come of it?
Charlotte: Oh my, if it isn't Niles. What do you mean by that?
Niles: You know exactly what I mean. I can see the understanding in your eyes.
Charlotte: I really don't know what you're trying to say.
Niles: Are you going to make me spell it out for you? I'm ready to do that, if I must...
Charlotte: Oh please, Niles, this is such a silly game. Ah, it appears some gentlemen need me over there. I must take my leave! Ta-taaaaa!
Charlotte: Oh, Niiiles! Could I talk with you for a tiny moment?
Niles: Of course. What is it?
Charlotte: Oh, but not here, silly. Let's speak in private... Over there, I think. Just the two of us...
Niles: Well, now we're alone... What did you have in mind?
Charlotte: Listen, you little punk. Don't think that I care about you just because I'm nice. In fact, I'm telling you right now to never speak to me again. I won't have you disrupting my interactions with the other men here.
Niles: What the... What's wrong with you?
Charlotte: Absolutely nothing. This is how I really am. Do you understand what I'm telling you?
Charlotte: OK, I'll spell it out. Consider this a warning. I don't like you. I don't want anyone to think that I do. The only reason I've spoken to you at all so far is to not look rude around others. There is absolutely nothing to gain from interacting with you, so I'm done.
Niles: My, my... That was quite unexpected. I knew she liked attention, but I didn't think she was hiding a different attitude. This is a real first for me... I could respect her wishes... But I don't particularly feel like obeying her, honestly. What to do... What to do...
Charlotte: Yes, that's totally right! So then I just...
Niles: Ah-ha, there she is. No surprise, she's placed herself as the center of attention among those men. She really is quite clever with how she behaves, I must admit. Let's see how she handles this, though...
Charlotte: Oh no, I'm not like that at all... There you go again, calling me cute!
Niles: Hello, Charlotte! I apologize for jumping into your conversation... But I just had to tell you—you look absolutely seductive.
Charlotte: Gah!! Um, I mean... Ah, hello, Niles! What could you possibly mean?
Niles: You've clearly intentionally thought of how to make yourself so appealing. I must commend you on the effort!
Charlotte: I... Niles, could I speak with you over there, where we can have some privacy?
Niles: The two of us, alone? Thanks, but no thanks. I'm not going to move from this spot. Anything you have to say can be said here.
Charlotte: Oh, come on. Here, I'll give you a lift.
Niles: Ahhh! What strength!!
Charlotte: You little pip-squeak! You ignored my warning—now face the consequences!
Niles: Ouch! By the gods, you're strong!
Charlotte: Of course I am. Did you think I'd defended this country with just my looks? You didn't respect my wishes. Understand? I'm going to beat you to a pulp now!
Niles: Charlotte, wait! Please listen to me! I've had you all wrong! And in any case, my actions have actually been good for you!
Charlotte: What are you talking about?
Niles: Everyone is intrigued by what we could possibly be talking about. As a result, they're all even more interested in you than they were before. Basically, interacting with me is actually increasing your standing with others. It's pretty advantageous.
Charlotte: I-is that true? I...had no idea people were paying attention...
Niles: I don't believe that, but...
Charlotte: Ha, ahahaha... Niles, I'm sorry. It seems like I've been a bit hasty. Can I do something to make it up to you?
Niles: No need for an apology. Right now I'd just be happy to survive this encounter.
Charlotte: Ah, of course. Please, forgive my attack a moment ago. We can speak in public places from now on, too.
Niles: Phew... I haven't had a thrill like that in quite some time.
Niles: Charlotte, thank you for coming.
Charlotte: This is a rare thing, to be sure. You haven't been barging into my conversations for a while. It was starting to hurt my feelings.
Niles: That's actually kind of why I haven't been. I like to toy with people to see their stressed, confused looks. Once you started enjoying my company... Well, it just didn't seem as fun anymore.
Charlotte: Oh really? And here I thought you supported me getting more popular.
Niles: That's also part of it. I thought I would be happier after I stopped bothering you... But I realized that what bothered me was the other men giving you attention.
Charlotte: Huh? What do you mean?
Niles: To put it another way... I want to tie myself to you.
Charlotte: I appreciate the offer, but that really isn't my thing, Niles.
Niles: What...? Oh, no. Heh. For once in my life, that isn't what I meant. Here.
Charlotte: This is...
Niles: Yes, it's a wedding ring. This is how I want to be tied to you. Charlotte, will you marry me?
Charlotte: I... I don't know what... Hang on, are you making fun of marriage? You're not exactly a big catch, so...
Niles: Heh, is that your only concern? You needn't worry about my financial state.
Charlotte: What, are you secretly rich?
Niles: No, but I am the direct subordinate to a member of the royal family. Let's just say I make significantly more than the average soldier.
Niles: Of course, I would still lose when compared to the royalty... But I can promise you I'd work as hard as possible to give you what you want. I've come to like you so much, it's confusing even to me.
Niles: Is that a no?
Charlotte: I... That's not what I'm saying... I just still wasn't sure if this was a joke. But there's no way you'd take it this far. I would have thought my serious pursuit of other men would have scared you off...
Niles: A lesser man, perhaps. But... I'm serious about this.
Charlotte: You are, aren't you? Yes, I can see that.
Charlotte: Very well... Yes. I'll marry you. You don't need to worry about money. I can figure that out on my own.
Niles: The least you can let me do is send something to your family.
Charlotte: How do you even know about them?
Niles: Never doubt my information network! I already know everything about you.
Charlotte: Really...? Coming from someone else, that would be a little creepy... But from you? I can actually accept it. Niles, I'm happy...
