Dimitri
This is the only ball of the year, and I see why. Everyone is absurdly excited...
link
Dedue
Your Highness, you sound so detached. We are all encouraged to enjoy the ball tomorrow.
link
Dimitri
Right you are. What a burden...
link
Felix
Huh. I never thought we'd see eye to eye, but I agree.
link
Felix
I'd rather be swinging my blade than wasting my time with some girl at a ball.
link
Sylvain
Felix! Your Highness! You must be joking, right? This is our chance to dance with all of the ladies of the academy to our heart's content.
link
Sylvain
You wish to throw away the best day of the whole year for sword practice? Insanity, I tell you!
link
Ashe
I'm pretty excited about the ball, myself. It's not like we get to do things like this very often.
link
Sylvain
Too true, Ashe. In fact, I'm gonna do you a favor and give you a crash course in chatting up girls. By tomorrow, you'll be an expert!
link
Ashe
Actually I'd much prefer if someone could just teach me how to dance...
link
Ashe
But there's so much to remember... Not just dancing, but ball etiquette too.
link
Annette
Don't worry about the dancing part. I can teach you that, easy!
link
Mercedes
It's time for the ball! That warrants at least a tiny bit of makeup, don't you think, Ingrid? Just a smidge?
link
Ingrid
I...hmm. Maybe. I'll think about it.
link
Annette
It's settled! Tomorrow morning we'll meet up in Ingrid's room. Ooh, I can't wait!
link
Dimitri
Hahaha.
link
Dimitri
You know... There's no telling where life will take us after we leave here. If only we could find a way to come together again, just like this...
link
Dedue
A fine notion, Your Highness. Perhaps five years from now?
link
Dimitri
Five years from now? Ah! That's when Garreg Mach Monastery will be holding its millennium festival.
link
Ingrid
By then we'll be addressing Your Highness as Your Majesty instead!
link
Sylvain
That's right. I suppose we all know it's coming, but by then you'll be far removed from us.
link
Dimitri
Come now. You know me better than that. My title may change, but I won't.
link
Dimitri
And it won't just be me, you know. Five years from now, you'll all have your own stuffy positions to contend with.
link
Dimitri
Five years from now, we'll all have our own stuffy positions to contend with.
link
Dimitri
But as I understand it, the festivities at the millennium festival will be of a scale far beyond anything we've yet seen...
link
Dimitri
In other words, the perfect excuse for all of us to return here.
link
Annette
Ooh, a reunion? That sounds fun! I wouldn't miss it for the world!
link
Dimitri
I'd love for you to be there as well, Professor. After all, you're the heart of the Blue Lion House.
link
Gain support points with Dimitri
link
Dimitri
Good. Then it's settled.
link
Dimitri
Of course...if something happens and I'm not able to attend, I'm leaving all of the logistics of organizing this reunion to you, Professor.
link
You have to attend.
link
Mercedes
It's true! I'm sure being a king will keep you busy, but it's a bit early to be backing out of your own plans, don't you think?
link
Dimitri
Yes... I suppose you're right.
link
Dimitri
I'm sorry. You have my word. I will return as well. Count on it.
