Phew... It's good to be here!
Oh, it's market day.
Let's grab a bite to eat before we climb the volcano.
I knew you'd like that idea!

They've really posted this everywhere.
Even in the remotest corners.
Come on, let's get out of here before we're recognized.
We have bigger problems right now...
That light...
We must be close to its nest.
Bingo!

Phoenix
Why are you bothering me, human?
Pepper
Greetings, O great Phoenix!
My name is Pepper, and I am a witch of Chaosah.
I've recently received a huge dose of Dragon's Rea and since then, this has shown up and keeps growing every day...
It neutralizes all my powers and may eventually kill me.

Phoenix
Hmm... I see...
Pepper
...and now you're here because you want a Phoenix's tears to heal, right?
Yes, it's my only option.
Phoenix
*sigh*
...well, what are you waiting for?
Try to make me cry.
I'll give you a minute!
Pepper
What?!
Make you cry?!
But I didn't know that...
I mean... Only one minute?!
Uh... OK! Let's see.
Hmm... Think about world hunger. Er, waitwaitwait! I've got something better: Those you've lost.
Still nothing? Abandoned pets?! Pet abandonment is so sad...

Phoenix

They at least tried poetry! Writing tragedies! ART! DRAMA!
BUT YOU?! YOU COME UNPREPARED!
YES, THAT'S IT; SHOO! GO HOME AND COME BACK WHEN YOU'RE READY!

Pepper
Grr! Come on, Pepper! Find a sad story.
You can do it. You can do it.
No... You can't.
Vendor
Hey! Oh! Get away!
Pepper

Vendor
Keep your paws off my stuff if you can't pay!
Pepper
Oh no, you don't... CARROT! You could help me instead of thinking about your stomach!
Oh?!
Oh, yeah... This could work.

Phoenix
Ah! You're back. So soon...
A metal weapon?!
Seriously?!
Don't you know that I can melt any metal and...
Sound
Plop
Plop

Phoenix
OH NO! NOT THAT!
THAT'S NOT FAIR!
Pepper
Quick Carrot! Catch as many tears as you can!

Chop!
Chop!
