I’ll be heading to Kamazene two days from now, and confirming the details of my call to residency. If I’m pleased, I will agree to the terms on the spot. Assuming nothing unforeseen happens, I plan to accept. I imagine I will have to be away for a few days. So you be a good girl and do exactly as Sebastian says. Sure, treat me like a child! But you ARE a child, Lilith. You're just thirteen! (Wow, the same age as my own baby sister... and I'm just a few years younger than Georik... holy shit...) But don’t forget, you promised! Do you remember the mansion where we lived, in the south of Kamazene? Of course! That was the place I first met St. Germant. I don't know about you, but this line (as well as other things) implies that this engagement happened because they fell in love, not because of some arranged marriage, aristocrat in-breeding type deal. But what about the villagers? This village has no doctor, and everyone relies on you. That is a topic I plan to discuss directly with His Highness. So you’re going to meet the King? Naturally. He is only too happy to do my bidding. He’d take off his wig and dance for me if I asked. Hee, hee... You are such a liar. But, Brother, it seems you’re a more important person than you look like. Humph. I suppose so. And if I work at the palace, I imagine it will help me to polish my skills as a physician. After what I assume is a short time skip that's only represented by Lilith's sprite disappearing... His attention was caught by a trophy he’d won in a fencing competition long ago, which sat on the shelf covered in a thin film of dust. It was from nine years before... When he had been living in Kamazene and been the champion of the national fencing contest. He won that when he was just seventeen. Wow. So, you're not only an aristocrat, but also an accomplished doctor and national fencing champion? And you're being appointed to work for the king himself when you're only twenty-six?! What a Gary Stu. Every time he looked at the trophy, he could not help but think of his two best friends, who were still living in the capital.
