        RESPONSE TO ( X )

         'AGAIN’. now, that’s key, isn’t it? she’s closed up before. closed up,
           put up her walls, closed herself off. for she kept love and compassion
           stored in her soul  — only allowing certain others to see it, before she
           hid it away beneath the veil of LUST. but does that not suffice for him?
           whatever love she cannot give,   she will offer tenfold in the desires of
           her flesh, of her lust.         is that not
enough ? 

                           ❝  i’m sure you know the answer to that.   ❞

Harpuia: Master X… Do you still trust that man… Weil?

Copy X: His banishment did not follow official ch-channels.

Copy X: Just because what he did resulted i-in a terrible calamity do-does not mean that banishing him was justified. He has returned to Neo Arcadia in a legal manner. What reason-n is there to drive him out? 

Copy X: Don’t worr-rr-rry. He has learned many things from his mistakes of the past. He’ll do things right th-this time.

Copy X: He’s even prepared something special for us as thanks for welcoming him back so warmly-y.

Harpuia: Something special…?
