Village Chief: I can't apologize enough for agreeing to offer up Lowen as a sacrifice.
Village Chief: But I was unable to find any other option...
Louise: I get that-but that doesn't mean I'm willing to shrug it off as if nothing happened!
Louise: You put my brother in grave danger!
Lowen: Yeah, but everything was okay in the end, so let's call it water under the bridge.
Louise: Well... If you say so...
Village Chief: I promise that we will make up for what you had to endure, young Lowen.
Louise: So what is your plan going forward?
Village Chief: Thanks to you, the prince has agreed to help protect us from fiends in the future.
Village Chief: Which means we can stop being reliant on Garuda.
Louise: You DO understand why Garuda asked for a sacrifice in the first place, right?
Louise: It's because of how lonely she was during the time she was protecting the people of this village.
Louise: She sacrificed everything for our people, so I hope you are not intending to simply turn your back on her now that another option has presented itself!
Lowen: Eeek! Calm down, Louise!
Village Chief: Put your fears at ease. No matter who protects us, we shall continue to revere Garuda as we always have.
Village Chief: We will all work together to ensure she never feels lonely again.
Louise: Don't ever forget that promise.
Louise: Hmm? The wind seems different somehow.
Lowen: I hope nothing happened to Garuda. We should go check on her!
Louise: But that cliff is really dangerous...
Lowen: Well, I'm going, so if you wanna come, you better hurry it up!
Louise: All right, all right! Wait for me!
Louise: So this is where Garuda lives...
Louise: The air here is so dry and depressing. It's no wonder she felt lonely living in a place like this all by herself.
Lowen: ...Garuda? Are you there?
Garuda: Ah! Greetings, Lowen! ...Oh, and YOU.
Louise: No need to sound so disappointed.
Garuda: What do you want from me, Lowen?
Louise: I'm standing RIGHT HERE!
Lowen: The wind in the village feels...different.
Lowen: It was sort of gloomy, so I worried something happened to you.
Garuda: No matter how I try to hide it, the wind reveals the truth.
Lowen: Then what is it? What's wrong?
Garuda: I am leaving this place.
Garuda: As this village now lives under the prince's protection, mine is no longer required.
Lowen: But everyone realizes they were wrong! They won't let you be lonely again!
Lowen: Are you sure you still want to go?
Garuda: I am not leaving because of loneliness; it is because I no longer need to worry.
Garuda: Fear of the village's safety kept me here in the past. But now...
Garuda: Well, perhaps your prince saw this coming.
Lowen: So does that mean we'll never see each other again?!
Lowen: We just became friends! I don't want you to go!
Garuda: Friends can never be parted.
Garuda: If ever you need my assistance, I promise to fly to your aid.
Lowen: Hee hee! I'm gonna hold you to that.
Louise: Perhaps we could all be friends.
Garuda: I have Lowen. You are unnecessary.
Louise: I attempt to hold out an olive branch and THAT is your response?!
Louise: Besides, I'll have you know that Lowen belongs to me!
Garuda: I thought you were planning to give him more space?
Louise: Not if it means you're going to rush in to fill that gap!
Lowen: Wait, WHAT?!
Garuda: Aaaah ha ha! Oh, what fun this is.
Louise: ...Heh. I suppose it IS a bit silly.
Lowen: Ha ha ha ha!
Lowen: See, guys? This is great!
Louise: It IS pretty great-and it's all because Garuda asked you to be a sacrifice.
Louise: Well, and because the prince decided to step in and help us out.
Garuda: Were it not for those events, it is unlikely either you or I would be leaving this village.
Louise: Honestly, I STILL have a number of reservations about leaving.
Louise: This village contains memories of our parents. If I wanted to keep living here as if nothing happened, I'm sure I could.
Garuda: Yet because of what you learned about yourself, you will not do so?
Louise: That's right. Leaving the village let both Lowen and I realize how much stronger we need to become.
Louise: Running from the truth won't help either of us do that.
Garuda: Then where will you go?
Louise: We're going to the Halidom to fight with the prince and his friends.
Lowen: Yeah! I'm gonna get strong and protect what I care about just like he does!
Garuda: I am certain you will be able to make that dream come true in time.
Lowen: So what about you?
Garuda: I intend to fly about the world and grow stronger myself.
Garuda: It was a terrible mistake to let my loneliness overtake me, and I do not intend to make that same error twice.
Louise: I understand,
Garuda: Well, I have said my parting words. This is farewell.
Lowen: But this isn't the last time we're gonna see each other, right?!
Garuda: No. We shall meet again, you and I.
Louise: You bet we will!
Lowen: Take care, Garuda! We'll be waiting!
Lowen: Aaaand...there she goes.
Louise: Hmm? The wind just changed direction all of a sudden.
Lowen: It feels like it's pushing us forward.
Louise: Ha ha! She could have just TOLD us that's how she felt instead of being so sly!
Lowen: Yeah, but I think the wind actually shows her feelings better than she does.
Louise: I suppose the wind is telling us to go forth and do our best.
Louise: O wind! Messenger of the promised land
- Your breath bring naught but joy
- Wherever you blow and however grand
- We'll always your breezes enjoy
Louise: We're leaving this place just as you did, Garuda.
Louise: Because there's a whole world out there waiting for us!
