Sazanka: Then I bundle your hair together and... There. Finished.
Botan: Aw, it looks GREAT! Thanks, Sazanka!
Sazanka: You are quite welcome. But whatever made you ask me to style your hair?
Sazanka: You are more than capable of creating this look on your own now.
Botan: Yeah, but you're better at it than me. Plus, having you fiddle with my 'do sorta reminds me of old times.
Botan: I mean, it's been a while since you worked your magic on my noggin.
Sazanka: Yes, it has been some time indeed. You were yet quite small, as I remember.
Sazanka: For me, it brings back memories of how we played together when you used to come to Master Ieyasu's mansion.
Sazanka: You have no idea how worried I was when you up and left here of your own accord.
Sazanka: I am glad the both of you are all right.
Botan: Yeah, sorry for worrying you like that.
Sazanka: If anyone ought be apologizing, it is I.
Botan: Why's that?
Sazanka: Because I knew information you did not—including that those who lead the Wyrmclans have shortened lives.
Sazanka: Yet I chose to prioritize Master Ieyasu's feelings over your own.
Sazanka: I cannot say enough how sorry I am; I knew you would be hurt, yet did nothing. Sadly, I did not even do anything to help Master Ieyasu himself.
Botan: What do you mean?
Sazanka: He has been a model Wyrmclan leader since he took on the responsibility.
Sazanka: Yet I could not help but notice a tinge of loneliness hidden beneath his smile.
Botan: Heh. Trying to shoulder every burden by his lonesome HAS always been one of his bad points.
Sazanka: Doubtless that is how he believes a leader should behave.
Sazanka: But when he chose to bottle up his fears and doubts, I could do nothing to ease his suffering. This makes me a true failure as a retainer.
Sazanka: I could see all of it happening, yet did nothing to help.
Botan: Hey, I'll be back in a bit, okay?
Sazanka: Hmm? Where are you going?
Botan: I'm gonna smack Ieyasu on the head!
Sazanka: You are going to...what?! Botan, wait!
Botan: Don't try and stop me! He made you super worried, and that is UNFORGIVABLE!
Botan: And there's nothing better than a dope slap for a dope like that!
Sazanka: Stop this instant, or it is YOU who will be receiving a...um..."dope slap."
Botan: Eeep! Okay, I stopped!
Sazanka: I am, of course, pleased that you are so concerned for me, but this is simply a consequence of my own ineptitude.
Sazanka: You must not blame Master Ieyasu.
Botan: Yeah, okay—but if I don't blame him, then you don't get to blame yourself!
Sazanka: How do you figure?
Botan: Because I think respecting his decision and just silently watching over him was what he actually WANTED.
Botan: Meanwhile, I was just thinking of myself like a big selfish jerk-o.
Sazanka: Perhaps so—but I think that selfishness helped him more than you realize.
Sazanka: It has been quite some time since I last saw him so truly happy.
Sazanka: I owe that to you, Botan.
Botan: Oh, please! I just did what my selfish little heart told me to do.
Botan: ...Buuuut if that DID end up helping him, then maybe coming after him wasn't such a bad choice after all.
Sazanka: I am very happy that you did.
Botan: Heh. He really is a LOT of work.
Botan: Still, since making work for you is apparently my jam now, can I ask a favor?
Sazanka: What is it?
Botan: Keep an eye on him and make sure he doesn't bottle everything up again.
Botan: You're the one who's closest to him, so you seem like the right lady for the job.
Sazanka: Of course, Botan. Happily.
Sazanka: I'll not let him be burdened by sadness ever again.
Botan: Aw, I knew I could count on you.
Botan: Oh! You're making rice porridge for dinner tonight, right?
Botan: Lemme help. I need to do SOMETHING in return for you helping me!
Sazanka: There is no need for you to thank me. Also, you are not the most...adept of chefs.
Botan: Aw, c'mon! How hard can it be? Just lemme help, okay? Pleeeease?
Ieyasu: Eavesdropping on young women is not exactly gentlemanly behavior, Addis.
Addis: Yeah, but since you're standin' here, I'm guessin' you listened as well.
Ieyasu: I did not intend to—I simply could not help myself.
Ieyasu: I was not aware that my behavior was distressing the two of them so.
Addis: Sazanka's been keepin' peepers on you for a long time now.
Addis: No surprise she'd notice a change. You're lucky to have her.
Ieyasu: I am indeed.
Addis: Hey, and not to take a page outta Botan's book, but keepin' everything to yourself ain't exactly the best idea in the world.
Addis: That's what you got us for.
Ieyasu: I shall strive to remember that.
Ieyasu: Now, let us go forth and undertake our next trial together: Botan's cooking.
Addis: I'm hopin' Sazanka secretly does all the cookin' and throws her stuff out.
Ieyasu: Ha ha ha!
Ieyasu: I am truly fortunate to have such fine retainers and friends.
Ieyasu: No man is an island—and indeed, I am as mighty as a continent with the three of you at my side.
