Fates Supports/Rinkah 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!
Rinkah: Hold on there, Kiragi.
Kiragi: Yikes! H-hey, Mom. You sure are good at sneaking around.
Rinkah: Stop making that nasty face at me. That's no way to treat your mother.
Kiragi: Sorry. You look like you're about to attack.
Rinkah: What are you doing out here? Don't you remember me telling you to stay home today? *sigh* This is hopeless.
Kiragi: I'm sorry. Listen, I promise I'll do some work as soon as I get home, OK?
Rinkah: No you won't. Don't try and fool me. Every time you get back from hunting all you wanna do is eat and go to bed.
Kiragi: B-but I don't want to study. I'm awful at math and history.
Rinkah: That's why you have to study, idiot! You're not going to improve by sitting around and complaining.
Kiragi: I can survive being bad at a few subjects. I don't see what the big deal is.
Rinkah: Those aren't the only ones you're terrible at! You need to start taking your education seriously now before it's too late. I admit, your father and I are partially to blame for not being around. But that's why I'm so determined to teach you everything I can.
Rinkah: Starting today, you have to cut down on hunting, understand? I'll stay and help as much as I can.
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!
Rinkah: Kiragi, get back here right now! Damn...
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.
Rinkah: Hmm, I should reword this...
Kiragi: It looks like she's writing something. What is she doing?
Rinkah: This is a tough formula. I bet it would be easier for him if I changed it to rabbits in a trap. Yeah, that would definitely be better.
Rinkah: Oops, I forgot to track down that detailed history book. It had such a clear timeline. I bet that would help him catch up. I guess I'll have to look for it later.
Kiragi: Geez, she's working really hard.
Rinkah: He might not know it, but Kiragi is much smarter than I am. If I can get him to learn one thing at a time, I know he can catch up. If only I could find a way to make him care.
Kiragi: Hi, Mom.
Rinkah: Ah, welcome back, Kiragi. Why are you just standing there?
Kiragi: I-I'm sorry, Mom. You're putting so much energy into helping me learn, and I keep running off to hunt.
Rinkah: Kiragi, it's fine, really. I'm sorry that I was so hard on you. I'm just happy that you've come around and you understand why this is important. Will you give up some hunting time to study?
Kiragi: 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.
Rinkah: That's great. Why don't we get started right away?
Kiragi: OK! But wait, I'm totally covered in mud. Let me change real quick—then we can start! Wait right here!
Rinkah: Thank you, Kiragi.
Kiragi: All right, I solved it! Take that, math problem!
Rinkah: You did, huh? Yeah, your answer is right. But how did you reach that conclusion?
Kiragi: Ah, about that. 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.
Rinkah: I see—that explains it. How clever.
Rinkah: This is impressive. Your history assignment was perfect too! All the years, places, and important events were 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!
Rinkah: Kiragi, don't give me too much credit. You're doing a really great job. I appreciate all your hard work.
Kiragi: Stop, Mom! You're going to make me blush.
Rinkah: Well, I'm already done with everything I wanted to teach you for the day. Why don't you run and do some hunting?
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.
Rinkah: 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?
Rinkah: Yeah, of course, if you really want to. Will you show me how you did that math problem again?
