Kate:
Cheer up, Sir Bresby.
Bresby:
Ahh...even you are telling me to cheer up, I'm already kicked out of the castle ...I don't think I'll feel healthy again, Kate.
Kate:
So, this was something you've always been telling me. There are always internal conflicts within the upper strata of the Empire so you never know when you will be involved.
Bresby:
...I've seen many occasions of people getting imprisoned or disappeared from the castle...but I didn't know I...
Gracia:
It seems the the clash for power within the Imperial higher level society is far more vicious than I've imagined.
Donhort:
That is Destonia, Sir Gracia. Those bunchs over there only think about themselves. Ambition and accusation is what they talk of politics. It's only obvious the nation and the citizens don't exist to them.
Bresby:
...I am aware of that, Donhort. However, if I give up like you, the Empire will be beyond the repair.
Kate:
Even though you say you wouldn't give up...Sir Bresby, you are now considered as a dangerous figure who disgrace the Empire's dignity...Even Prince Mageron has gave up on you.
Bresby:
...That's why I'm thinking it over. What should I do...What should I...
Donhort:
Yes. Sir Bresby... it would be better for you if you abandon Destonia as well.
Bresby:
Abandon Destonia...? Are you telling me to become like you, who has been disappointed in the Republic as well?
Donhort:
I...I think I had not understood what my hope really is. I had always believed desire is what kept humanity running...that's why I didn't wait any longer to participate in the War of Independence...However, desire exist in every part of human lives. It's true the most ideal nation would be compromised of the strong who protects the weak, and the weak who serve the strong...thus the balance is kept. However, this ideal is impossible to achieve once blended with desires. Sir Gracia is cut off from the desires of the human world, and exists here. I have decided to cut off myself from the world as well. The only way left for me, who has been disappointed with this world, is to live with Sir Gracia.
Bresby:
Is that your answer?
Donhort:
If I have to affirm the existance of humanity desires, I'd rather gaze over the world beside the guardian, who would even protect the desire and greed from high above.
Kate:
Until you die...are you going to live like that, Sir Donhort?
Donhort:
I don't know that for now, Kate...However, that is what I believe right now, to progress, until Bulzome's ambition is destroyed!
Bresby:
I'm finally beginning to realize your true intent on why you have decided to come to the Empire with Sir Gracia...Donhort. And, my way is also...chosen. I have been believing the social reformation would happen simply by being the Prince's educator and advisor. However, I have been disappointed with Prince Mageron's attitude. The person who possesses the power will be enslaved by the power he possesses...and is unable to avoid the authority he created for himself. Even in perilous times, the world is still being adhered to the power and the authority, and I ran out of patience for such. Since the power and the authority can only exist when this world does, I...for the continuation of this world...wish to be a part of Sir Gracia's power as well.
Kate:
Me too...the endless feud for power... I realized being loyal to the Empire is something stupid. The peril in the capital is over only briefly. Before Walcuray arrives here again, please let me accompany with Sir Gracia.
Scholar:
Finally you feel that way. I'm happy Bresby...
Bresby:
Have you been overhearing our conversation...Scholar? As you said, you can't live in Destonia castle by a sense of justice alone.
Scholar:
General Steel was truly cunning...He conviniently turned over his fault of letting Destonia be invaded to Julian's Battalion. He must have known it is effective to bring out the prestige of the Empire to weak-willed Prince Mageron.
Bresby:
I don't think you've shown your face here just to say that.
Scholar:
To justify his speech, General Steel has begun to mobilize his force towards this village...
Donhort:
Their objective must be Gracia...
Scholar:
It's Sir Gracia and the Staff of Elbesem, whom the Emperor seeks. He must have been thinking about taking advantage of this chance, and started the march!
Kate:
How could...we've saved the capital...To be repaying kindness with evil, this is too much!
Bresby:
What should we do, Scholar? Would we make it if we leave the village right now?
Scholar:
It doesn't seem there is any way to evade from Steel army who's marching into the village, Bresby.
Gracia:
I have no intention of either getting caught or handing over the staff...Do you have any good ideas?
Scholar:
Even though...if I open the way out...if you waste anymore time here, the Imperials will surround here and you will lose the chance to escape. It's a bit dangerous, but should I let you use it...? It's the same escape route we've used when the Military Police pinned us.
Donhort:
But dangerous...
Scholar:
However, do you think it's worse than fighting Steel's army here, as well as bringing the entire Imperial army?
Bresby:
Where are you going, Scholar...? What are you going to do to us?
Scholar:
I am returning to the church to make a preparation for your escape...You come to the church too!
Bresby:
Before the Imperial army reachs here to get Sir Gracia, we have to get out of the village immediately, Julian. Hurry up with the preparations and head to the church!
Headquarters
Bresby:
What's wrong with the army of the Empire? I'm on their side, so this is making me sad. But, there is no time to be sad. They are probably looking for Gracia. We can't abandon him. We have to leave this area as quickly as possible!
Donhort:
I will be prepared to fight against General Steel, if he is planning a riot against Prince Mageron.
Kate:
The Empire is my home country. But as I have seen the differences in the society classes, I have gotten bad confidence.
Edmund:
The foolish son of Emperor Dominate is marching with his army. It wouldn't be worth to battle against him. We'd better escape.
Gracia:
There is a struggle for power within the Empire, while Bulzome is a threat to the land. Therefore, it is important that the country would be united.
Bridget:
I used to live with aristocratic people in the castle of Destonia, and a lot of corruption took place in the higher classes. The aristocrats, as well as the Emperor and its family are only focusing on their own interests. They are egotists, and do not show any grattitude when other people do favours for them.
