Fates Supports/Oboro 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!
Oboro: Stop right there, Kiragi!
Kiragi: Yikes! H-hey, Mom. You sure are good at sneaking these days.
Oboro: Did I scare you?
Kiragi: Obviously. You look like you're about to attack me!
Oboro: Ah ha! That's because you're out here, and you absolutely shouldn't be. What am I going to do with you...
Kiragi: I'm really sorry... I promise I'll do it as soon as I get home tonight, OK?
Oboro: Yeah right. I've heard that one before. Every time you get back from hunting, you grab something to eat and hit the hay. Not this time.
Kiragi: B-but... I'm so terrible at math and no good at history...
Oboro: I know. That's exactly why you need to actually devote some time to practicing. I already told you that I would help out with your studies.
Kiragi: I can survive being bad at math and history. I don't see what the big deal is.
Oboro: You're ridiculously far behind with your studies. It's not good. Your father and I should have realized that much sooner, and we're sorry. But we're all together now, which means we really want to help you get up to speed. I know it doesn't seem like it, but this will be so good for you! Who knows? Maybe you'll even have a little bit of fun!
Oboro: Let's head home. I know you love hunting, but I think you'll thank me for pushing 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!
Oboro: Wait just a minute, Kiragi! 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 hunter.
Oboro: Hmm... No, that's unrelated. Maybe if I rewrite it like this...
Kiragi: What's this? It looks like she's writing something down...
Oboro: Instead of using just numbers, we can change these to rabbits in a trap... I bet that would help him understand...
Kiragi: What is she doing there?
Oboro: Oh drat! Where did I stick that book? I know it's around here somewhere. I need to track it down so I can start his history lessons.
Kiragi: Geez, she's working really hard...
Oboro: Kiragi needs to work on his memorization skills. If we cover things nice and slow... I know that he'll catch up soon enough.
Kiragi: Hey, Mom...
Oboro: Oh, welcome home, Kiragi! What are you daydreaming about?
Kiragi: I-I'm sorry, Mom. You're putting so much energy into helping me learn, while I'm just hunting. I'm really sorry.
Oboro: Shhh, it's all right, Kiragi. It's important that we both understand where the other is coming from. I know that hunting is your passion. But if you balanced that with some study time, I would really appreciate it.
Kiragi: I will! I didn't really realize how much this mattered until I saw you just now... Please, teach me! I want to learn about math and history!
Oboro: Do you really mean it? That makes me so happy. Would you like to get started?
Kiragi: OK! But wait. I'm totally covered in mud. Let me change real quick—then we can start! Wait right here!
Oboro: Heheh... Thank you, Kiragi...
Kiragi: All right! I solved it! Take that, math problem!
Oboro: Hang on, let me check your work... Interesting... The answer is correct...but I don't see how you got it.
Kiragi: Oh, 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.
Oboro: Wow, that's amazing! An advanced method, huh?
Oboro: Your history work was perfect, too. All the years, places, and important events are in the correct spots. You didn't miss a thing. I'm so proud of you!
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!
Oboro: I'm very proud of you! Your hard work is already paying off.
Kiragi: Stop, Mom! You're going to make me blush.
Oboro: That's all I had for you to cover today. It's still nice and sunny. Why don't you run and do some hunting?
Kiragi: Um... Hmm... No, that's all right.
Kiragi: I mean, hunting is great and all. But... I'd love to study some more with you.
Oboro: Kiragi, really?
Kiragi: You made me understand that learning can be so much fun! I can't believe that I used to dread it. We can keep going, right?
Oboro: Sure! I'm really enjoying our time together.
Kiragi: Me too!
