Fates Supports/Azama Felicia
Azama: Ah, there you are, Felicia.
Felicia: Hello, Azama. Is something the matter?
Azama: I've heard that you're a servant here. Or should I say maid? That's what you call it here, right?
Felicia: It sure is!
Azama: I've often heard that maids have to devote themselves to their masters completely. That meticulously performing one's duties is the most important aspect of life. Is that true? If so, being a maid must require a truly generous spirit.
Felicia: Something like that. But your description is a little bit extreme.
Azama: Well I never said that YOU were carrying out your duties successfully!
Felicia: H-heeey! That's not very nice!
Azama: What I really wanted to know was how it feels to be so devoted to another person. It seems like a unique situation.
Felicia: You want to know how it feels?
Azama: I'm just curious to know what it's like to live for someone else. To take care of their many unique needs.
Felicia: That's a difficult question. I just want to do the best job that I can. I live to assist the people who mean the most to me. It's not terribly complicated.
Azama: No, that's actually even more confusing! Maybe it's beyond my comprehension. Are you really so sad that you feel like you have to live for other people?
Felicia: No, that's not it at all. I think it's totally natural to live for those you care about.
Azama: Perhaps your equivalent of natural is just different from mine?
Felicia: Hmm, well... If that's true, why don't you try working with me as a maid for a while? That might clear up your confusion.
Azama: Are you serious? That sounds like such a pain in the neck.
Felicia: Maybe that could help you understand my perspective better.
Azama: Perhaps you're right. Hmm... I don't know if I can really devote myself to someone like you have though. What do you think?
Felicia: It might be difficult for you. But it wouldn't hurt to try, right?
Azama: Your reasoning does make a lot of sense. Honestly, the idea of being a maid makes me want to grind my teeth. I guess I could help you out for a bit. Just until I get to the bottom of this.
Felicia: Great! I'll probably ask for your help soon!
Felicia: Rise and shine, Azama!
Azama: Urgh, why are you waking me up? You didn't tell me this was part of the deal. Come on, the sun isn't even up. I'm so sleepy still...
Felicia: Every maid has to wake up nice and early. There's so much to do. Let's get to work!
Felicia: First things first—we have to prepare breakfast! Then after that, we'll wash the dishes and do the laundry. Oh, and then comes cleaning the rooms, checking the stockroom's inventory... And we'll have to buy some groceries for the midday meal, of course!
Azama: We have to do all of that this morning? I think I've already lost my motivation.
Felicia: What do you mean?! The whole point of today is dedicating yourself to other people, remember?
Azama: *sigh* Your enthusiasm is incredible. Honestly, I mean it.
Azama: Oh gods. This place looks like a disaster. What did you do?!
Felicia: *sob* Oh no! I failed again!
Azama: Felicia, this is a disaster. What happened? You burned all the toast and shattered the dishes into a million pieces! And look at the laundry. The color has faded out of all these clothes! Do you have any idea how to actually be a maid? I thought this was your job?
Felicia: *sniffle* Why did you have to come out and say it like that?
Azama: It clearly needed to be said! Normally, I like to get my point across in a sarcastic way... But being a maid requires actual competence, not just passion!
Felicia: I-I'm just shocked. It really hurts to have you throw that out there.
Azama: You need to figure out a way to make fewer mistakes. This is causing too much trouble. I know how much you care about this. So find a way to make that passion actually reflect in your actions.
Felicia: Y-you're right. I'll try to be more careful.
Azama: Felicia, watch out! The pot is boiling over! Hustle and turn off the heat.
Felicia: OK, got it!
Azama: We need more trays. Grab some from that back shelf.
Felicia: G-got it!
Azama: When you have the time later, go and inspect the stockroom, OK? We need to do an inventory of all the sundry goods too!
Felicia: There's so much to do! I feel like my head is spinning.
Azama: How can you possibly complain? This is an average amount of work! Any true maid has to be able to keep up with this pace.
Felicia: You're right. Oh, Azama, guess what!
Felicia: Everyone was praising me yesterday!
Azama: Really? Is that so?
Felicia: Yeah. They've been saying that I keep getting better and better at doing chores. They say I've been making fewer mistakes, so things have been going more smoothly. It's all thanks to you helping me out!
Azama: Wait a minute... Nooooooo!!
Felicia: What happened? Are you OK?
Azama: What have I been doing this whole time? At first I just wanted to understand your duties. Then I critiqued your performance. And now here I am, all but doing your job for you! I didn't realize how much I was pitching in.
Felicia: You really have! It's almost like you've become my assistant or something.
Azama: I just don't feel like my usual self. What's happening to me? It's like my personality is dissolving minute by minute...
Felicia: Is that so bad? Who knows? Maybe people will start calling you a nice person next!
Azama: Hahaha, that would be something. I guess this isn't the worst thing in the world. Being a maid is tough work, but it's actually pretty rewarding.
Felicia: Yep, exactly!
Azama: Oh, Felicia...
Felicia: Hey! Did you come to help out with the chores again, Azama?
Azama: No, not today.
Felicia: That's too bad. Sorry, I mean— I shouldn't be so presumptuous about you assisting me. You don't have to. Obviously I need to figure out how to succeed at this all on my own.
Azama: Spending all that time together has got me thinking about things...
Felicia: Hmm? What do you mean?
Azama: I simply can't get you out of my head, which is completely strange to me. You and I are so different. We think in totally opposite ways. And yet, I like that. I think we complement each other. What I'm saying is...I have feelings for you.
Felicia: Oh, Azama! I knew there was something growing between us... Even though it was hard, you've made work so much more fun lately. I loved having you by my side. I'll just say it already. I like you too!
Azama: I'm so happy to hear you say that. Can we spend the rest of the day together? I can give you a hand with the laundry or the dishes too.
Felicia: That sounds wonderful!
