|How strange that such a ship crashed here.|
|You know what this thing is?|
|How could I not?|
This is an Alcamoth trading ship.
It would have been used to transport Ether Cylinders.
So you're saying this is a High Entia ship?
|Does this come as a surprise?|
|I feel my explanation is quite reasonable.|
Do you find something amiss with it?
|Er...amiss... Does that mean wrong?|
Nothing's wrong with it exactly. It's just...I mean...you know...
|Well, that was a cryptic response if ever I heard one.|
|All right, fine.|
We kind of...took the cylinders from the ship. And used them.
|Hmm. I see.|
|Then I must send a request for payment to your colony's leader.|
|You're gonna charge us?!|
|I should think that obvious, Reyn.|
This ship was quite expensive. We cannot provide it free of charge.
Is it not a crown princess' duty to collect monies owed to Alcamoth?
|Oh, so it's like that, is it?|
And how do you expect us to pay off our bill?
The colony's flat broke!
|Oh, hush, Reyn. I am merely jesting with you.|
Did you honestly think that I would demand payment?
|You were joking?!|
That's not fair! You're too good at keeping a straight face!
|The ship appears to have crashed here a very long time ago.|
I am not sure whose property it is, but they are unlikely to claim it.
If you needed the Ether Cylinders, then so be it.
|Phew! That's a relief.|
You really had me going there for a minute.
|A little of you and others has rubbed off on me.|
I have learnt many new things from you, Reyn. Thank you.
|Whoa. You're making me blush!|
There's one thing you gotta know about me. I don't need no thanks.
But I don't mind a pat on the back every now and then.
|And what of it, Reyn?|
|You seem embarrassed to admit to this.|
Do you feel there is something wrong with the colony's actions?
|Nah, not really.|
If you're all right with it, then fine by me!
|Hmph. Did you think I would be so miserly as to object?|
I am offended.
|Wait a second! I didn't say that!|
But, you know... This ship must belong to someone.
Whoever flew it here could still be around somewhere, right?
|Perhaps. We cannot be sure.|
If they are alive, I would assume they have returned to Alcamoth.
|And if they're dead, then they're at one with the Bionis.|
The family's gonna want to know what happened.
And that'll cause all kinds of hassle for you, right?
I fear your concern is misplaced, Reyn.
The people of Colony 9 have my gratitude, not my ire. After all...
You have saved me numerous times and will continue to do so.
At least, I hope that you will.
|That's A-OK with me.|
We're on the same team. You need any help at all, just say the word.
And you'll do the same for me when I'm in a tight spot, right?
|You need not even ask, Reyn.|
The sense of unity in our group means a great deal to me.
I would not sacrifice it for anything.
|I am saying exactly that.|
|Do you not recognise the design?|
You saw many similar ships in Alcamoth.
|I dunno. We were a bit tied up.|
|True, you were rather preoccupied.|
In any case, I can't help but wonder...
|If there were any survivors?|
It is possible that one or more people survived the crash.
But it would have been a tall order from them to get back to Alcamoth.
|It's a long trip, that's for sure.|
And if they were High Entia, they'd stick out like a sore thumb.
|They would be easy prey for monsters.|
The ship must have crashed here a very long time ago...
But even the High Entia of old should not have come here.
They should have known better.
|This sounds pretty complicated. But I can tell you're upset.|
How about we give these guys a break? Whoever they were.
|You are getting to know me well. I do say some harsh things.|
And yes, perhaps it is to mask my own distress.
I am grateful for your presence, Reyn.
Without you here by my side, I fear I would be far more upset.
|Oh, great! I was just gonna ask if there was anything I could do.|
|Do not act so surprised, Reyn.|
You know full well that you've cheered me up.
Was that not why you came over and spoke to me in the first place?
Teehee. I can see why Shulk holds you in such high regard.
|Wait, hang on!|
What was that part about why I came over in the first place?
Even if you figure stuff like that out, you're not meant to say it!
I mwan...er... Right! Let's get out of here!
|You know, you still look like a silly brute even when you blush.|
Perhaps it might be advisable to stop doing so?
Now, let's rejoin the others. Thank you for all your help, Reyn.
|What the ship was doing here?|
|Indeed. It was before my time, so I cannot know the circumstances.|
But it seems odd to me that this ship travelled to the lower regions.
Why was it necessary to transport all these cylinders here?
|There must have been some kind of reason.|
|Yes. But what it was, I do not know.|
All I can be sure of is that this ship is a very old model.
|I bet a ship this big got attacked by tons of monsters.|
All those cylinders on board and stuff.
|That is very likely.|
But the ship would have had defence systems on board.
|What if it got hit by one of those Telethia things from up your way?|
I bet the defence systems would be no match for it at all.
|Perhaps. But it does not appear to be damaged.|
We shouldn't worry over things that are in the past.
Come. Let us find the others.
|Hey! Hang on a minute! We still don't know anything.|
Aaand...she's gone. Well, no use me stewing over it either I guess.
