Sylvain
Hey, Professor. How's life treating ya?
link
Sylvain
Hey, Professor. You're looking lovely as ever.
link
Sylvain
Are you working today? You gotta take a day sometime. Get out in the world and have some fun.
link
Sylvain
Right? Sometimes you gotta forget all the things you oughta do and focus on what you'd rather do.
link
Sylvain
Hey, we should go get something to eat. My treat.
link
Sylvain
Aw, come on, Professor. Let me buy you something to eat. Relax for a couple hours at least.
link
Sylvain
Ah, fine. You're missing out though.
link
Sylvain
What? I can't invite my professor to dinner without it being a scam? Heh! I...ah... OK, fine. You got me.
link
Sylvain
I need to ask a favor, and I wanted a way to work up the courage to ask you.
link
Sylvain
No, for once it's not about a girl.
link
Sylvain
There are thieves in my family's territory. I was wondering if you'd go with me to drive 'em off.
link
Sylvain
You remember the thief leader you fought at Conand Tower, yeah?
link
Sylvain
Yes, Miklan. He was the oldest son of House Gautier.
link
Sylvain
That's right. Although he's dead now...
link
Sylvain
What's left of his band of thieves is causing trouble in Gautier territory.
link
Sylvain
My father has asked me to come home and put down those murderous jerks.
link
Sylvain
But he's asked for me to come alone—no knights, no backup of any sort. That's crazy, right?
link
Sylvain
Because he thinks he'd lose face asking the church for help.
link
Sylvain
I don't know. He could have asked another trusted house to send troops, but he only asked me.
link
Sylvain
And the way my father is...he probably has some other motive that I'll never know.
link
Sylvain
Maybe he just wants me to get some more experience in battle. Crazy way to suggest it though.
link
Sylvain
Anyway, I'm not going alone, no matter what he asks. I'm going to ask some of the others in our class to help too.
link
Sylvain
But none of us have your experience. If you'd come with us, I'd be grateful.
link
Sylvain
Great! I'll talk to the others and see who's in. Thanks, Professor!
link
Sylvain
OK. I understand. I did kind of just drop that question on you, huh?
link
Sylvain
If you change your mind though, let me know. I'll be around for a bit.
