Byleth, Edelgard enter the scene

Edelgard
The Almyran army retreated. Their casualties were numerous.
link
Edelgard
As I understand it, they won't be attempting another invasion anytime soon.
link
Edelgard
Still, we must prepare the local troops before their enemy returns.
link
Edelgard
Indeed. But if possible, I would like to foster amicable relations with them.
link
Edelgard
That is my hope. I would even consider a treaty.
link
Edelgard
Unlike Fódlan, Almyra is not a land ruled by blind fealty to the goddess.
link
Edelgard
I believe we need only to communicate openly with them and respect the differences between our cultures.
link
Edelgard
If we do that, we should be able to have a meaningful dialogue with them, one more promising than what we can expect from followers of the goddess.

Hubert enters the scene
link
Edelgard
Ah, Hubert. What did Duke Goneril say?
link
Hubert
He expresses his sincere gratitude to Lady Edelgard.
link
Hubert
In addition, he would like to leave the protection of the Throat to Imperial troops from now on.
link
Edelgard
Is that so? How reasonable of him. By the way, what was it that ailed Holst?
link
Hubert
I did not hear all the details, but apparently he ate some bad mushrooms.
link
Hubert
It is said he is now emaciated and pale, and his skin exudes a mysterious vapor.
link
Edelgard
Huh, I can't help but imagine what that must look like...but it's probably better not to think about it.
link
Hubert
Agreed. Do not worry yourself with such thoughts.
link
Edelgard
Indeed... Well, then maybe you should pay a visit.
link
Edelgard
And then...you could tell me what it looked like.
link
Edelgard
There's only one option, then. I must pay a visit on my own and see this ailment with my own eyes.
link
Hubert
Heh...
link
Edelgard
Actually... On second thought, I'd better not. As emperor, I can't risk it.
