|Sorry to drag you away at a time like this.|
|It's OK. What did you want to talk about?|
|I didn't want to say this earlier, but...|
Until I met you, I thought Melia was the one for him.
|For who? Are you talking about Shulk?|
Don't get me wrong, I don't want to meddle. I'm just...an onlooker.
I don't really mind which one of you gets the guy.
|I know that you're a big deal to the boy, so don't worry.|
Lately that's been clear as can be.
|Lately...? You mean...after he found me?|
|Yeah. Since you came back.|
I mean, Shulk looked out for everyone like the good guy he is.
But he's definitely changed since you joined us.
|He has? How do you mean?|
|He doesn't seem so... grimly determined.|
|Grim anything doesn't sound much like Shulk to me.|
|He might not have even noticed the change himself.|
But I did, Dunban did... Riki might have done?
|But not Melia and Reyn?|
|They saw him differently.|
Reyn's been going through almost the same thing as Shulk.
|Melia what? What were you going to say?|
|You'll have to talk to her if you want to find that out.|
I shouldn't be the one to tell you.
|But I'd still be happy to see either of you get together with Shulk.|
|That's kind of you, Sharla.|
Wish me luck!
|I don't think he's changed.|
|That makes sense. You didn't see him until after you met up again.|
|I know, but...|
Do you really think Shulk has changed that much?
|I don't mean it in a bad way. He's still basically the same guy.|
|Well that's a relief. So he never stopped being kind and sweet...|
|Not for a second.|
But that's not what I mean. It's subtle, but he's stronger now.
I think it's because he knows he has to protect you from now on.
I'm glad he hasn't changed too much though.
I would hate for Shulk to stop being Shulk.
|Maybe he tried really hard to stop himself from changing.|
|That doesn't sound very practical.|
|I meant, like, subconsciously.|
Maybe part of him really wanted to keep hold of who he was.
|You could well be right.|
Shulk's a kind enough person that deep down, he'd want to stay kind.
Thanks for telling me about all this, Sharla.
|Don't worry. No thanks needed. Just hang in there, OK?|
|Something up, Fiora?|
|Yes! Something's definitely up!|
You see what my body's like now. Why would he pick me over Melia?
|Talk to me, Fiora. I'm a girl too, so I can relate.|
|Yes. And I want you to remember something.|
None of us look at you as someone who needs our pity or anything.
|How can you speak for everyone?|
|Because...I see it in their eyes. Especially Shulk's.|
He deeply regrets that he couldn't stop this happening to you.
But his feelings for you are still clear as day.
|I'm sorry, that might make you worry that you're a burden to him.|
But you needed to know that. To know how he feels about you...
|I didn't realise any of this.|
I was convinced everyone just felt sorry for me, including him.
I know you all care about me a lot. I guess I just read it a bit wrong!
|Well, it's hard for me to know for sure what anyone else is thinking.|
Or what you're thinking about what they're thinking...
Listening to what you say makes me feel I was mistaken.
|Probably. But who can blame you for trusting what's in your heart?|
|You're right! Thank you, Sharla!|
And if I ever look like I haven't understood something like this...
Be sure to let me know!
|No you can't!|
|Maybe that was a bit of a strong statement on my part.|
|No, it's fine.|
Just...don't pity me or anything...
|I won't. I would never feel sorry for you.|
Wait, no. That came out wrong.
|Sharla, where are you going with this?|
|I don't look at you and think you're someone that needs pity.|
But I care about you a lot, and I do worry about you.
About your new body and...how things are going with Shulk.
You probably think I should learn to mind my own business!
|Don't be silly! I don't think that.|
You're so nice to me, Sharla.
Here I am complaining and you're just worried I'm OK.
|It's who I am. I'm glad I got to tell you about it.|
And sorry that I pulled you away from you-know-who!
|That's OK! I enjoyed chatting to you. We should do it more often!|
