One day, two letters were delivered to Anna Testarossa.

Quest Completion Dialogue
  • Two different colored envelops laid side by side on top of the desk. Both envelops were addressed to Anna Testarossa.
  • Anna: These letters... I wonder who they're from?
  • Anna wiped the sweat off her brow and gently placed the revolver on the desk. The weak scent of gunpowder filled the room since she had just come back from shooting practice.
  • Anna: (I wasn't expecting a letter from anyone... Was it father?)
  • Anna picked up the letter and looked at the front and back then slightly cocked her head to the side. Her father was a distinguished general and due to his missions he was always busy. When her father was on a mission, he would not send a single letter home and it wasn't until the end of the mission that he would return with a tired expression. Though she was only able to see her father two times year, Anna understood her father's situation. No, if anything, she longed for the same. The reason she had enrolled into military school was so she could be in the military just like her father. The military school was not just a school to play soldier, but to become a real soldier that goes on missions. It was a place that would allow her to become the proud servicewoman that she had wished to become and be fairly acknowledged.
  • To Anna Testarossa. We would like to report the death of...
  • Anna: Your father, General Testarossa...
  • She collapsed in place and stared blankly at the words in the letter as if she couldn't believe it. We would like to give our condolences. He met with the enemy, fought bravely, and we appreciate his efforts. Though she finished reading until the end, the only thing Anna could think about was the words 'report the death of'.
  • Anna: (Father... No. This must be someone's cruel joke... Yeah, that's what it is...
  • Anna crumpled up the fancy letter and envelope and threw it into the corner of the room and opened the dark colored envelope and quickly read the content.
  • To Anna. It's been a long time, Anna. Are you doing well? I hope you are able to safely receive this letter... Even if you receive this along with receiving terrible news, I hope that you will not be startled. I have been deployed to the very front lines of the battlefield. As a soldier, everyday you live is just life prolonged, so even if I die tomorrow on the battlefield there will be nothing wrong with it. Dying on the battlefield has always been my greatest desire. Though I don't think it is yet time for me... the current situation has made me think otherwise. A few weeks ago, I was put in charge of taking over a territory. This mission itself was very quick but an additional mission was sent to kill all natives of that land. The natives had already surrendered and unarmed. When we first arrived, the natives didn't put up any resistance and simply gave us the land. I disobeyed the direct order for the first time. I just couldn't murder hundreds of innocents. After that, I was demoted and relocated to a different place. I don't regret my decision, even if I was given the same choice today, I would still disobey it. I never regret my decisions... But I thought of you a lot. I remembered that I really never took the time to watch you grow. I wish I had taken more time to be with you... and be a great father to you. I am sorry that I let you down. This letter might be the last letter I send you. Tomorrow, the troops are heading into a dangerous battle. I hope I live to send you another letter, but.... If you happen to receive this letter along with my death.. Do no be sad. I know you are strong and you will make me proud. Never back down, always believe in yourself, Anna.
  • Anna: ...
  • The letter fell to the ground as Anna's grip weakened.
  • Anna: (The path of the soldier... The army... What good is it for? How can I be a proud soldier... When it is so corrupts...?) ...... Father...

Attached was an announcement that the princess would be visiting the military school.

Quest Completion Dialogue
  • Student 1: Hey, did you hear? The princess is coming!
  • Student 2: The princess is? Here?
  • Student 1: Yup! You didn't see the huge notice posted on the board? She's coming for an inspection...
  • Anna: ... Do you mind getting out of the way?
  • The two students who were walking down the hallway side by side had to move aside and turned around from the emotionless voice.
  • Student 2: An-... Anna Testarossa...
  • The two stare at each other for a brief moment before stepping back to let Anna through. The news of General Testarossa's death quickly spread through the campus. The General who disobeyed a direct order. Each time Anna would walk by, the students would quietly talk about it amongst themselves.
  • Anna: (My father lived an honorable life. His name shouldn't be talked amongst these who are unworthy...
  • Anna bit down on her lips and quickly walked toward her room. She then stopped in front of the message board and thought of what others were saying about her father.
  • Anna: (The Imperial Princess is visiting...)
  • The Imperial Princess was always a hot topic around the campus as the young Princess that took over the reign of running the empire and has the support of all the citizens.
  • Anna: (Who cares... This doesn't concern me...)
  • While Anna was mindlessly reading down on the notice, she noticed that he name was up on 'Cefeteria Guard Duty'.
  • Anna: (.. Tsk, they didn't even tell me this was happening... How annoying..)
  • Anna holds up her pen to scratch out her name but quickly put it back down and walks back to her room. She was just not interested in doing anything at the moment. Nothing interested her, the Imperial Princess or the guard duty.

While working security, Anna crossed paths with an unusual child.

Quest Completion Dialogue
  • On the day of the Princess's arrival, Anna was already on guard duty long before the actual arrival and was in the process of stretching inside the cafeteria. The cafeteria was busy prepping for the banquet. Anna looks at the scene with zero interest. A fluttering table cloth catches her attention and she looks over.
  • Anna: (Sneaking in on my watch? Not a chance..)
  • A tiny girl was crawling across the cafeteria floor in shabby clothes.
  • Anna: (I head the street thugs around the area orders kids to fetch left over food from wealthy areas... Is she one of them? I feel bad but.. I can't allow this to happen today.)
  • Anna sneaks behind the girl and picks her up by the back of her neck.
  • Child: H-How dare you! It hurts! Unhand me at once!
  • The girl screamed and kicked and Anna put the girl down and looked down at her stern face.
  • Child: ... I was caught... I guess today's not my lucky day. I even disguised myself, how was I caught?
  • Anna: I know you are probably hungry but today's not a good day. Unless you want to be arrested, I think you should get out of here before more people notice us.
  • The girl takes on a shocked expression and quickly speaks.
  • Child: Y.. You never seen me before?
  • Anna: No? There are thousands of kids like you around here.
  • The girl starts to laugh after hearing Anna.
  • Anna: (W-.. What's so funny?)
  • The girl finally stops laughing and wipes away at her tears.
  • Child: Haha, thousands of kids like me? Interesting. Okay, I'll take my leave. Good work with the guard duty.
  • The girl turns on her heels and disappears into the kitchen and Anna just frowns as she watches her leave.
  • Anna: (Kids these days are so weird. She had a weird tone in her voice... I did hear not too many kids on the streets were sane in the head...... Eh, who cares.)
  • Anna sighs and returns back to her position. She stands and hope that nothing like this happens again during today's duty.

Anna told the unusual child her circumstances.

Quest Completion Dialogue
  • Attendant: We can't have the likes of her on guard duty.
  • Professor: She is his daughter but she's just a student here...
  • Attendant: You mean, she's not the daughter of the general who disobeyed a direct order and died? What are you going to do if the girl decides to hurt the Princess out of vengeance?
  • Sharp voices flew left and right within the cafeteria and Anna just stood there with her head down. When the professor dismissed her, she bolted out of the cafeteria.
  • Anna: (They know nothing...)
  • There was a tiny storage fare away from the cafeteria. It was used to store different ingredients used in the kitchen. The storage was in a secluded area and because of that, not a lot of people visited. Anna always used the storage whenever she was depressed or wanted to gather her thoughts.
  • Anna: (My father was an honorable soldier... He was no a traitor..)
  • Anna balled up in a corner. Whenever she heard other people talk badly about her father, she got angry and wanted to cry. She couldn't take other people talking about her father as if they knew everything and making it worse like a bad rumor.
  • Child: You sulking in a place like this must mean that something went wrong.
  • Anna: ...!
  • Anna almost jumped up from the shock. She never thought anyone would ever visit this place. The little girl that was caught by Anna was standing in front of her.
  • Anna: You're from before...
  • The girl sat beside Anna.
  • Child: Why were you crying?
  • Anna: ... Why do you care? I want to be alone, go away.
  • Anna goes back to her ball and the girl stares as Anna for a moment before pinching Anna by her back.
  • Anna: Ow! What are you doing?
  • Child: I don't know what you are sad about but sharing it with other people might make you feel better. So, tell me. What happened?
  • The girl smiled and stared at Anna's eyes. Anna just stared back before sighing.
  • Anna: You're a strange kid... I don't even know where to begin..
  • Once Anna gathered her thoughts, she started to tell the girl about the story of her father. Once Anna finished her story, the girl looked at Anna with serious face and said.
  • Child: That's it? I thought it was something serious.
  • Anna bolted up on her feet from shock and yelled.
  • Anna: What?! That's it?! How could...!
  • Child: I mean, what else can you do about this whole situation right now. I agree that it is very tragic but you can't turn back time or cause a revolution within the army to change anything.
  • Anna: B-But...
  • The girl looked up at Anna before brushing off her butt and walking past Anna.
  • Child: I have to get going. I don't look it but I'm a busy person.
  • Anna: Wait! Come back here! Hey!
  • The girl quickly disappeared while Anna stood inside the dark storage trying to contain her anger.

The words of the child began to take root inside Anna's head.

Quest Completion Dialogue
  • Anna: (That's it? I thought it was something serious...)
  • Anna laid down on her bed thinking back on what the girl said to her. She was shocked and angry at the girl's reaction to her problems.
  • Anna: (Even if the matter does not concern her, she could have at least said something to make the person feel better!)
  • Anna squeezed her pillow tightly to let out her anger before breathing in and out a few times.
  • Anna: (I guess it would be hard to relate since this had never happened to her. But what did I expect to hear from her? What did I want to hear)
  • The girl's words started to jumble up Anna's thought process and drove her crazy.
  • Anna: (... Was I this weak? This was the path I chose.. No one else forced me to do it.)
  • Anna remembered her father's letter where it said to always believe in herself.
  • Anna: (What do I have to do to believe in myself, father? How?)
  • Anna buried her face on her pillow and closed her eyes. Her mind was chaotic.

When they met again, the child told Anna of the things that she had to deal with.

Quest Completion Dialogue
  • On the last night of the Imperial Princess's visit, Anna pretended to be one of the Princess's attendants and got out of guard duty.
  • Anna: (I have better places to be... Why did I come here?)
  • Anna was just out for a quick walk but her feet took her back to the storage.
  • Anna: That girl...
  • Anna saw a familiar figure and quickly ran towards her while yelling.
  • Anna: Hey you!!!
  • Child: Hm.. As expected, I knew I would find you here again.
  • The girl grinned and stood before Anna.
  • Anna: If you're not going to apologize for the other night, you better not say another word.
  • Anna walked inside the storage with a cold voice and glanced at the girl. The girl followed Anna inside without saying a word.
  • Child: What did I do wrong? I only said it to help you out. I also found my way after hearing that from someone else.
  • Anna: What...?
  • Child: What are you doing? Sit. My feet hurt from running all over the place to find you.
  • The girl sat around Anna and muttered. Anna frowns at her before awkwardly sitting beside her.
  • Child: What I expected is slightly different from yours but it's not too far off. A father like figure who watched over me died an there were many important choices I had to make. With my choice there will be people laughing and crying... I was too scared of responsibilities that I was busy running away from it. I told everyone around me that I wasn't up for you, I cannot make such important choices... Those were some of the things that I've been telling others around me.
  • The girl put a bitter smile and paused. Anna remembered the phrase 'How annoying', the phrase that she had been saying ever since her father's death. Anna knew that she was no different from the little girl.
  • Child: But then someone said this to me. 'That's it? I thought it was something important.' I, of course got mad at that person, just like you. I couldn't understand them. I was so sad and scared but that person didn't even try to cheer me up. When I asked just like you, you know what that person said to me?
  • Anna quietly shook her head.
  • The girl opens her closed eyes and looks at Anna before asking.
  • Child: What are the things you can do? And what are the things you want to do?
  • Anna: The things I can do... and want to do...?
  • The girl gets up on her feet before straightening out her outfit and puts out her tiny hand towards Anna.
  • Child: I can tell you that crying in this tiny storage is not one of them.
  • Anna stares at the tiny hand for a moment before grabbing it and getting back up. Anna didn't agree or disagree with the girl but simply stood there.

It was the day the princess's visitation was to end. Anna met the child again in an unexpected place.

Quest Completion Dialogue
  • In order to celebrate the Imperial Princess's visit, a military inspection was held. People talked amongst themselves, eagerly waiting for Princess Erze to show up.
  • Attendant: Imperial Princess Erze has arrived?
  • The crowd stood on the side and made way for the Princess and amongst them, Anna was there with a puzzled look. She just wanted this to be over and quick as possible. Anna's head was spinning after heart the girl's story. She wasn't quite able to gather her thoughts. Anna sighed and looked towards the crowds that was leading the march.
  • Anna: (Is there a problem..? Why did they stop?
  • A crowd of people were stopped in front of Anna. As Anna was wondering why, the Imperial Princess Ezre stood before her. Anna felt so nervous that the Princess was in front of her, her mind was going blank.
  • Princess Ezre: What's wrong now?
  • Anna: I'm sorry...?
  • Princess Ezre: Are you just nervous? I thought something serious was going on.
  • Anna: Ah... You are?!
  • Anna yelled out as she quickly realized that the little girl she was talking to was the Imperial Princess all along.
  • Officer: How dare you address the Imperial Princess like that...?!
  • Princess Ezre: That's enough.
  • Anna: M-My apologies Princess.
  • Anna quickly bows to the Princess and Ezre just gazes at her with a smile. Ezre slightly nods at the Officer beside her. The Officer quickly pulls out a golden scroll and read it out loudly.
  • Officer: I, Imperial Princess Ezre acknowledge the wrongful order given to General Testarossa and hereby clear him of all conviction and restore his title of General. The remains of General Testarossa will be moved to the Graveyard of Fallen Soldiers.
  • As the officer rolls the scroll back up, lined up soldier fire a gun in the air to honor the fallen general. Anna blankly stares at the sky and slowly straightens her shoulders and back.
  • Anna: (Rest in peace, father)
  • The princess quietly waits until the ceremony to commemorate the fallen general before approaching Anna.
  • Princess Ezre: Did you find the answer to my question?
  • Anna looks at the Princess and her fragile figure and nod firmly.
  • Anna: ... Yes.
  • The Princess smiles from the answer and turns around.
  • Princess Ezre: Then, go forth then the way will open.
  • The Princess slowly got further and further away from Anna and Anna stared at the Princess and thought to herself.
  • Anna: (The things that I can do and want to do...)
  • Anna's face fills with determination.
  • Anna: (I will become a proud soldier and protect you, Princess. You that saved me from this misery.)
