|Sara||There it is! The beach!|
|Lippy||I've never seen so many people wearing swimsuits in one place before.|
|Sara|| This must be a good swimming spot── look how much fun everyone's having! And just smell that sea breeze... That sure takes me back! |
Sorry for getting so carried away, but I really love the beach!
|Lippy||I suppose that's no surprise, considering you hail from a village near the sea.|
|Sara||And I'm really good at swimming and diving, if I do say so myself! I could probably swim out to that island and back, if I wanted to.|
|Lippy||Which island do you mean? Surely not that one on the horizon, which looks barely the size of an Apple Gel from here...?|
|Sara|| That's the one! Aw, geez... Feel that wind! Hear those waves! And that bright summer sun... Aaaah. |
So... what do you guys think? If you want to, and I mean seriously, like, only if you guys want to...
Would you like to go in for a dip? ...You would? You're sure? All right!
|Lippy||I see no harm in a little diversion!|
|Sara||Can we go diving too? ...Yeah? Yahoo!|
|Lippy||Apparently you were not exaggerating when you said you loved the beach.|
|Sara|| All right, I'm gonna get some things. There's usually a Seapost store at places like this. |
They've got pretty much everything one could possibly need at the beach!
|Lippy||It's quite an enterprise, isn't it? They must be a huge organization to span so much territory.|
|Lippy||The clerks here certainly have a bit of a rough vibe to them...|
|Sara||Yeah, the Seapost staff seem to be like that everywhere. Um, excuse me? We're looking for a complete set of everything.|
|Staff||First time visitor, eh? My name's Garcia. I run this region.|
|Garcia||We got kind of a rule in swimming areas like this. And if you're not gonna follow it, I can't sell you nothing.|
|Sara||A rule...? What are you talking about?|
|Garcia||It's like this, missy. Do you know what beach play is supposed to be about?|
|Lippy||That's an awfully broad question...|
|Sara||Of course I know! It's about the love and friendship and camaraderie shared by those on the beach!|
|Lippy||...And an equally broad answer.|
|Garcia||Correct! You do know what beach play is all about, missy.|
|Lippy||That was the correct answer? Really?|
|Garcia|| In order to protect that principle, I expect my customers to be of service to other customers' beach-play needs, via this here Seapost. |
And if you're willing to help out, then I've got everything you need.
|Sara||You mean, I gotta work for you? All right, sure. I'll do it.|
|Lippy||I'm surprised, Lady Sara. I didn't expect you to agree so readily!|
|Sara||Heh, yeah, well... It's been forever since I've had a chance to go swimming, and I'm gonna do what I gotta do!|
|Lippy||You truly do love the beach, don't you?|
|Garcia||All right, first I'm gonna have you deliver some food. Give this mild curry to the guy in the parka on the west beach.|
|Sara||Roger that! I'll have it to him in a jiff.|
|Sara||Parka guy, where are you...? Mr. Parka, come out and──oh! Is that...!|
|Asbel||Aw, dang it. Now what should I do?|
|Asbel||Huh? (user)?! Sara? What are you guys doing here?|
|Sara||Well, long story short, we're helping out at the Seapost. What about you?|
|Asbel||Cheria finally managed to pry me away from my lord duties for a bit of a breather here at the beach.|
|Sara||That's great! There's no better place to enjoy a little vacation.|
|Asbel|| Yeah, I've been trying to make the most of it, playing in the water and such, but Cheria's mood took a sudden turn... |
I thought she might be hungry or something, so I ordered her some curry.
|Lippy||Then I believe this order is for you, Lord Asbel.|
|Asbel|| Thanks, but... it sounds like that wasn't the problem at all, and she ran off somewhere in a huff. |
I don't know what to do! I can't figure out what she's so upset about.
|Sara||Oh, Asbel! Is that her over there?|
|Cheria|| Seriously, Asbel? |
They say the summer sun casts everyone in a new light, but I guess I was a fool to think that it could pierce the haze around Asbel's eyes...
After all that work finding the right swimsuit and working up the courage to wear it, he didn't even comment on it!
I mean, I'm glad he had a chance to get his mind off of his work and have some fun, but... he's so insensitive!
|Asbel||There you are, Cheria! I've been looking for you!|
|Cheria||What is it, Asbel? If you want to get back in the water, go by yourself. I'm tired.|
|Asbel||No, I just... I wanted to tell you...|
|Cheria||Tell me what?|
|Asbel||That you... look amazing in that swimsuit.|
|Cheria||What? WHAT?! Why are you... I mean... I'm flattered to hear that, I really am! But... what brought that on? Why now?|
|Asbel|| I just got some good advi... Er... I mean, I just... uh, realized that maybe I'd gone a little overboard... |
With the, you know, playing at the beach and having fun, and I forgot to tell you, um... how good you looked.
|Asbel||You wanna just come sit with me in the shade for a bit? I feel like I've been so busy, I haven't had a chance to really talk with you lately.|
|Cheria||S-Sure. That sounds great.|
|Sara|| Hee hee! I had a feeling that might be the problem. That sort of thing happens all the time at the beach. |
All right, let's go see what Garcia wants from us next!
|Lippy||Dear me, Great Savior. Lady Sara has always been a spirited girl, but here at the beach, she is something else!|
|──Meanwhile, a young soldier looks on──|
|Ayncia|| Huh... When I signed up for a local security detail, I never imagined they'd assign me to the beach. |
It beats the battlefield, I guess, but I dunno about the uniform. Do I really have to wear a swimsuit so as not to intimidate the beachgoers?
It's so embarrassing! I'm sure I look ridiculous.
Hey, you over there! Cut that out before you hurt yourself!
Well, hopefully the day will pass without incident...
|Garcia|| Looks like that little errand worked out all right. Here's what I got for you next... |
There's a watermelon field in the hills across from the shore. Go get a melon for my friend here.
|Kor||Oh, hey! It's you guys!|
|Sara||Kor! Have you and Kohaku come to spend the day here at the beach?|
|Kor||Yeah. I invited her out, and she said sure!|
|Lippy||Don't tell me Master Hisui has come along as well?|
|Kor||No. Nope. No way. No Hisui today.|
|Lippy||I see. Then I can only imagine he is frantically searching for his sister as we speak.|
|Kor||Heh heh. Yeah, I've been trying to enjoy the beach while keeping one eye out for crossbow bolts flying towards my back.|
|Sara||What's the melon for? You gonna put on blindfolds and try to split it open down at the beach?|
|Kor|| Yeah, exactly! We always did that when I was growing up, but Kohaku's from way up north where they don't really know a lot about having fun at the beach. |
Since I finally got her down to one, I want to make sure she experiences all the beach has to offer!
|Sara|| I like the way you think, Kor! I want her to have a great time! |
We'll be right back with that watermelon, I promise!
|Lippy||Lady Sara...? Well, Great Savior, I suppose we'd best hurry after her. I hope she doesn't intend to run the entire way...|
|Sara||Order up! One watermelon!|
|Kor||Aw, thanks! This is perfect.|
|Garcia||All right, missy. Your next job is to help with the watermelon splitting. That sorta thing's no fun without a crowd.|
|Kor||Hey, Kohaku! I got the watermelon!|
|Kohaku||That's great, Kor. Oh! It's Sara and (user)! What a pleasant surprise!|
|Sara||How've you been, Kohaku? We came out for a little fun in the sun, but we gotta help out at the Seapost first.|
|Lippy||They got the watermelon for me, and are gonna help us split it too!|
|Kohaku||Huh! Well, the more the merrier! So how's this watermelon splitting business go?|
|Sara||Well, first I'm gonna blindfold you.|
|Lippy||I've placed the watermelon!|
|Kor||Okay Kohaku, follow our directions. The watermelon's to your right!|
|Kohaku||Okay, moving right.|
|Lippy||Okay, now it's just ahead of you!|
|Sara||A little bit more to the right.|
|Kor||Okay, back to the left. No! Too far! Yeah, back a bit—perfect. Right there.|
|Kohaku||Okay! Now I give it my best shot?|
|Kor||Yeah! Crack that thing open!|
|Kor||Huh? Do you guys hear someone yelling?|
|...Unleash your rage!|
|Kohaku|| Woo! I split that watermelon perfectly! And now we get to eat it, right? |
Huh...? Where did Kor go?
|Lippy||I'm afraid while you were blindfolded, Master Hisui came charging up yelling, "there he is!" and unleashing artes. Kor is fleeing for his life right now.|
|Kor||Stop, Hisui! Stop! Calm down!|
|Hisui||I got you now, you dirty deviant! No way can you lure my Kohaku out on some creepy beach date and get away with it!|
|Kohaku||Hisui! Stop this right now!|
|Sara||Heh... Just like old times, I guess!|
|──Meanwhile, a young soldier looks on──|
|Ayncia|| What's with all the commotion down at that end of the beach? |
Is that guy fighting with those──whoa! That girl is stunning! Look at her long black hair... I would kill for that.
Huh, looks like it's pretty heated between those three. Some sort of love triangle?
Whoa, that guy tried to cast an arte and that girl sent him flying into the ocean with one kick!
Yep, definitely a love triangle. But damn, what a kick. She's as tough as she is beautiful. She's my hero!
Uh──oh! Doesn't look like that guy she kicked can swim! I better save him before he drowns!
Hold on, guy! I'm coming!
|Garcia||Nice work. Onto the next one! The old guy here is lookin' for a missing kid. Go help him out.|
|Rowen||My name is Rowen. If you're willing, I would be most grateful for your help.|
|Sara||A lost child? Of course we'll help!|
|Rowen|| Thank you. We had agreed on a time and place to meet, but she never showed. |
I'm going to return to our meeting spot and search in that area. Would you be willing to look for her elsewhere on the beach?
|Garcia||Sounds like a good plan. If she shows up here, I'll look after her for you.|
|Sara||Okay, we'll start by making a circuit of the north beach. Can you tell us what we should be looking for?|
|Rowen||Her name is Elize, and she'll be traveling with a stuffed animal. It's purple and... very distinctive.|
|Sara||Girl with a purple stuffed animal, got it! Let's get a move on, guys!|
|Sara||I feel like we've looked everywhere...|
|Lippy||If she isn't here, we should return to the Seapost and see if there have been any developments.|
|？？？？||When I find that old geezer, I'm gonna...|
|Sara||Hmm? Is it just me, or is the voice coming from that girl really odd...?|
|Girl||No, Teepo! We have to act like grown-ups here. He'll apologize, and we'll forgive him.|
|Sara||Hey... That girl is talking to a stuffed animal!|
|Lippy||And perhaps more interestingly, the stuffed animal is talking back...|
|Sara||Um, excuse me? Is your name Elize?|
|Rowen||Elize! Teepo! I've been searching for you. I'm so relieved that you're safe.|
|Teepo||What's the deal, Rowen! You blew off our meeting!|
|Elize||Teepo's right, Rowen. We waited forever at our meeting spot, and you never showed!|
|Rowen||But I've been waiting here at the south exit the entire time, exactly as I promised!|
|Teepo||The meeting spot was the north exit!|
|Rowen||I'm quite certain I said "south."|
|Elize||D──Did you? Are you sure...?|
|Teepo||NO WAY DID YOU SAY SOUTH. You said north! Elize heard it too! Tell him, Elize!|
|Elize||I... Yes, that's right. I heard north too.|
|Rowen|| Oh dear. Then that would make me the one who was missing all along... |
Haha! Then let's say that the mistake was mine. I didn't think senility had set in yet, but maybe I'm wrong about that too!
|Teepo||Yes, "let's say" that the truth is the truth and you were WRONG!|
|Elize||Hmph! That's a dirty trick, Rowen! You act like you're admitting something when you're really just patronizing us!|
|Sara||Gosh, I wonder who was right?|
|Garcia|| Heh heh. Did Rowen get it wrong, or was it Elize? Just another mystery of the deep blue sea. |
You can take a leap of faith one way or the other, or accept that the sea would sooner dry up and die than reveal the truths of the mysteries it holds.
|Lippy||I'm afraid I have no idea what you mean to convey, Master Garcia. And... not for the first time.|
|Garcia||All right, onto your next job!|
|Lippy||*Sigh* Onward, then.|
|—Meanwhile, a young soldier looks on—|
|Ayncia|| Oh, there's that girl in the dress again... |
Huh! The first time I saw her, I thought she looked so lost and confused...
I didn't realize that was just her character in some ventriloquist act!
Man, she's really good. Her lips don't move at all, and her reactions to the puppet are perfect!
I wish I had some kinda talent like that. It would have come in handy when they suddenly turned the spotlight on me at the new soldier welcome party...
|Ayncia||A poliwigle...? Hey! Get away from here! Shoo!|
|Ayncia||Huh... As the guard on duty, I wonder if I was supposed to do something about that?|
|Garcia|| For your next job, I want you to deliver this shaved ice. |
It's a custom order, shaved ice flavored with apple cider instead of syrup.
|Sara||That's pretty odd. Isn't shaved ice usually strawberry or lemon flavored?|
|Garcia|| People here come from all sorts of places. I've had people request shaved ice with rice! And what the customer wants, the customer gets. |
So I gave the cider version a shot. Not exactly the way I'd do it, but that's what you get with other cultures sometimes.
That's half the fun of the beach! Now get going!
|Sara||I'm on it! But I need to know who it was that ordered it!|
|Garcia||A cold but beautiful blonde on the east beach, wearing a straw hat. Trust me── you couldn't miss her if you tried.|
|Sara||All right, one cider shaved ice, coming up!|
|Sara|| This is the east beach, but I'm not seeing any straw hat-wearing blondes. |
Hmm? Do you see her, Lippy?
|Lippy|| If I'm not mistaken, I believe I do... |
That woman with the long blonde hair over that way. I'd recognize the intense divinity that she radiates anywhere...
|Milla||Oh? (user) and his friends? We always meet in the strangest places.|
|Lippy||Greetings, Lord Maxwell! I never thought I'd see you in swimwear, but it... certainly does suit you.|
|Milla|| As you can see, I am engaged in a "beach holiday." |
I am trying to experience varied facets of human culture to better understand their behavior.
|Milla||In addition to swimming, I have ordered a food known as "shaved ice" that I have heard is associated with beaches, but it has yet to arrive.|
|Sara||Oh! Are you the one who ordered shaved ice with cider? If so, I've got it right here!|
|Milla||Oh? Ah, you must be making deliveries for the Seapost. I understand that too is an integral aspect of the beachgoing experience.|
|Sara|| You got it! So here it is—Oh? |
Oh no. The ice melted, and now it's just watery cider.
|Lippy||Dear me! Perhaps cider is not an effective replacement for syrup after all.|
|Milla||Hmmm. The proprietor seemed concerned about that as well. But when he asked what I wanted on my shaved ice, cider was the first thing that came to mind.|
|Sara||No, it's all my fault! We took too long to deliver it.|
|Milla||No, my order was poorly conceived. The responsibility is mine.|
|Jude||Is something wrong, Milla?|
|Milla||Ah, Jude, I ordered some shaved ice, but...|
|Jude||You ordered shaved ice too? I just got back with some from the Seapost! Ah, what a waste!|
|Milla||No, that's quite fortuitous! I ordered mine with cider and was disappointed to discover it had melted.|
|Jude||Oh, then this works out perfectly. I figured you'd be curious about it, so I got you one too.|
|Lippy||What a considerate fellow you are, Master Jude.|
|Jude||Nah, it was just a hunch. Which would you like, Milla? Strawberry or lemon?|
|Milla||Ah, I see. So fruit is the typical topping for shaved ice?|
|Jude||Well, sort of. They turn the fruit into syrup first.|
|Garcia|| So the cider shaved ice was a failure. Perhaps it was doomed from the start. |
But not every failure is a tragedy. The sea drinks deeply of memories both happy and sad. It does not judge.
Well, the time is upon us already. This next request will be your last!
|──Meanwhile, a young soldier looks on──|
|Ayncia|| Look at those two, eating shaved ice together. Lovers, perhaps? Somehow... it looks more complicated than that. |
But if it's a date, I envy them. I wish I got asked out on beach dates!
I should do romantic things like that, too. It would sure help if I had someone to do 'em with, though.
|Ayncia||Damn it, you again? You gotta scoot before you freak everyone out!|
|Ayncia||Awww... Are you lonely, little guy? You just came down for a swim?|
|Ayncia||Yeah, all right. Fair enough. There's a little nook up that way where no one will see you. Go and swim to your heart's content.|
|Ayncia|| And there he goes, looking all happy. What a weird little guy. |
Well, that poliwigle's the closest thing to a romance I've had in my life lately.
|Garcia||I know you want some time to swim yourself, so I'll make this your last job. But it's the most important one.|
|Sara||Let me guess, cleaning up trash on the beach?|
|Garcia||You know your beaches, missy.|
|Lippy||I'm more than a little disturbed by how in sync these two seem to be...|
|Garcia|| You understand the beach. You respect the beach. But not all visitors do. And that means more work for us. |
I'll start in the middle and clean half the beach, and you do the other half. Let's both keep an eye out for the more troublesome visitors.
|Sara||You got it! Come on, (user)! Come on Lippy! Let's get this done!|
|Lippy|| And Lady Sara has gone dashing off once more. |
Here I thought we had come to play in the water, yet now it seems she's more interested in taking care of the beach!
I suppose that is very much like our Lady Sara.
Well, Great Savior. It appears we have a job to do!
|Sara||All right, this beach is trash free!|
|Garcia|| I appreciate the effort you put into this. Now you're a friend of this beach too. |
I know it took a while, but I've got something good here for you.
It's been tempered by each and every one of the happy memories you've helped make for the people on this beach.
This artifact exemplifies both the scorching heat of the summer sun and the reinvigorating breeze that accompanies crashing waves.
|Sara|| Thank you so much! We'll treasure it! |
Whoa. The sea at sunset sure is beautiful.
|Lippy||You really do love the beach, don't you, Lady Sara?|
|Sara||How could I not, growing up near such beauty? But I'm sorry I got so into helping out at the Seapost... Now it's a little too late to swim.|
|Lippy||Psst, Great Savior! [Lippy whispers something into (user)'s ear.]|
|Sara||What are you two smiling about? Did someone say something funny?|
|Lippy||Lady Sara, why don't we pitch our camp right here today?|
|Sara||Right here? Then we could swim all day tomorrow! Are you guys sure that's okay?|
|Lippy||After all the time you spent today helping other people's beachgoing dreams come true, it's only fair that we do the same for you!|
|Sara|| Thanks, you guys! |
All right, (user), Lippy... Tomorrow morning, let's see how far we can all swim!
|Lippy||Do go easy on us, Lady Sara! And I won't have either of you getting into the water without doing a proper stretching regimen.|
|Sara||All right, sure. I know we're gonna have a blast!|
|—Meanwhile, a young soldier looks on—|
|Ayncia||Everyone's starting to head home. Looks like my watch is ending soon.|
|Ayncia||Are you going home too, buddy?|
|Ayncia||Will I see you again tomorrow?|
|Ayncia||All right, if you must. But play where you won't get in anyone's way, okay?|
|Ayncia|| Heh. Well, I feel like I made a friend. He's a polwigle, but still. |
Summer. Working at the beach. Friends with a polwigle.
Not the sort of summer memories people cherish...
Well, they could be worse. Summer memories sure are weird, huh? Still, I bet this'll be a good summer.
All right, beach. I'll see you tomorrow!
