Olivie- Hi, Luva, it's been a while.
Luva- Ah, Olivie.
Luva- Did you go off to somewhere?
Olivie- Oh, you didn't notice.
*My presence is so weak.*
Olivie- There was a festival on a remote planet and I just returned!
*Though it's during a special Queen Examination,
work is work.*
Olivie- Well, I was thinking what could there be on a somewhat plain planet, but
the people living there are generous.
Luva- That planet is rich in mineral resources and has great skill in metal refining and
working, doesn't it?
Olivie- You know!?
*Just as I would expect from the Guardian of Earth.*
*Jingling with new accessories!*
Luva- *I can tell by looking.*
Olivie- Only since they had a little bad sense, I placed a special order and had several made.
*Her Majesty knows very well that the power of Steel alone is not enough.*
Olivie- Well then, I thought I'd show you something nice.
Luva- Is this... an aurora stone?
Olivie- Yes, the stone you wouldn't give to me.
But since I got such a large stone it's alright.
*sticking out tongue*
Olivie- *Even if you said you wanted it, I wouldn't give it to you.*
*Even when I cried, coaxed, and turned on the charm, you didn't give it to me.*
You came to flaunt.
*Even if I turned on the charm...*
Olivie- Well, actually, there's one more serious topic.
It's the reason I was summoned...
Olivie- On that planet, this stone is called the stone which forms dreams.
It's a mysterious stone that if you make a wish before going to sleep, shows the dream people
are thinking of.
It has a small protective degree, but it was traded at a very high price.
Olivie- Is that because it's so large?
People were quarreling with each other and trying to get it.
This stone that had absorbed an evil stain of ambition
ended up calling a terrifying Nightmare to the planet.
Luva- A Nightmare? Is that a demon?
Olivie- Yes, the people had nightmares and were in chaos.
Finally, Her Majesty's sanction was issued.
Luva- This stone hides such a terrible power...
Olivie- So you be careful too.
Don't carelessly take it out of that specimen box.
Luva- Ah... ah, but, it's not like that splendidly large stone...
and it's such a teeny-weeny, teensy-tiny thing, it doesn't compare,
Luva- Divided in two, it's even smaller and th, that power is...
Olivie- What did you do with that stone?
Olivie- Impossible, you didn't do something like give it to a person, did you?
Luva- Uh, um...
Luva- E, excuse me, but the fortune-teller Sara is the one I asked to work on it.
If there were something strange, I think she would notice and I'm sure it's alright.........
Olivie- ......... Well, who did you give it to?
Luva- To A... Angelique and Rosalia...
*I... I'm scared.*
Nurse- Good morning, Miss Rosalia.
Rosa- Good morning, nurse.
Rosa- Oh, how lovely.
Nurse- They are roses that were blooming in the greenhouse of your mansion. Nostalgic, aren't they.
Rosa- What a nice scent.
Rosa- Does Luva-sama likes roses?
*Next time, I'll have some sent.*
Nurse- Miss Rosalia, shall I curl your hair?
Rosa- Yes, please. If my hair isn't arranged, I don't feel refreshed.
After all, you're the best.
Nurse- *Oh my.*
Leave it to me.
Ange- Oh, Rosalia, good morning.
Rosa- Good morning, Angelique. You look futilely well today.
Ange- Gee, Rosalia, for a young lady, you have a sharp tongue.
Ange- Oh, hey, Rosalia, why don't we do to the Holy Palace together?
Rosa- Thanks, but there is a place I'm stopping by today.
Ange- Well then, excuse me.
Ange- Cultivation, cultivation.
The cultivation of my continent Felicia is proceeding well.
After all, I had an unerring eye in choosing him as the priest.
Rosa- ... Hello.
Sara- Oh, welcome, Queen Candidate.
A love spell or a reading of compatibility with a boyfriend, which do you desire?
The whispers of the stars will guide you.
Rosa- Uh... um, I...
Sara- *giggle* I'm truly glad.
Since you don't come at all, I was losing confidence in my readings.
You'll certainly fall in love in the Flying City.
You'll discover the jewel of the heart.
Rosa- I, I didn't particularly come to get a reading about love or that kind of thing.
I thought I would consult you about how to contact future Guardians.
Sara- It's alright, young lady. It's not something you can be very honest about at first.
Sara- I was also that way when I first met Pastha...
Rosa- Uh... um...
*A person who doesn't listen is here too.*
Sara- Oh, you're wearing that pendant. I'm so glad.
Sara- I can see it, under your clothes.
Sara- Oh, I'm sorry. "I feel it" to be precise.
You got it from Luva-sama, didn't you?
Rosa- H... how...
Sara- I'm the one who made that pendant!
When Luva-sama said he wanted to give a present to a girl, I was a little surprised however.
*Even though I wear a brooch, I wore it under my clothes.*
Sara- He's rather cute when he falters...
Sara- Since it's a stone from which I feel a bit of a strange power,
I thought dividing it into two was a waste however.
If you liked it, then I'm glad.
Sara- Yes, one for each Queen Candidate.
Sara- What's the matter?
Sara- Luva-sama truly cares about both of you.
Rosa- I... must be going.
Sara- Oh, what about your reading?
Rosa- No thank you today.
Rosa- Good day.
It wasn't only to me?
Luva- Ah, Rosalia, this is for you.
It's a lovely pendant... isn't it?
Luva- It's a good-luck charm for the Queen Examination.
Since I feel that you're being a little over-attentive,
I'd like you to relax just a bit.
Luva- You should be a little more relaxed.
Ange- Oh, Rosalia.
Rosa- Do you have the pendant Luva-sama gave you?
Ange- Yeah, I'm wearing it today.
Ange- You and I both.
It's beautiful, isn't it.
Ange- Rosalia, what's the matter?
Absentminded Luva-sama... he forgot to say it was Angelique and I both.
And I also misunderstood as I pleased...
I thought he understood me better than anyone.
Luva-sama's goodwill is unquestionable.
It's only that it isn't something directed at me alone.
Even though it's only that,
Why do I feel so bad?
Rosa- Oh, no.
I can't stand these feelings.
I am Rosalia De Catargena.
I'm supposed to be the perfect Queen Candidate.
Are you here?
I love the smell of roses.
Since they let me think of myself as a very attractive girl.
More exalted than anyone,
Able to be happier than anyone.
Rosa- ...... That hurts.
