Track 8: I Want You to Forget About Me
Track 8: I Want You to Forget About Me
[arrows whooshing through the air. one connects and Stahl lets out a cry of pain.]
Stahl: [steps forward, breathing heavily, grunts, then laughs] I’ve been really hungry for a while now. I’m… all out… of strength…
Frederick: What are you saying!? Robin, Lissa, and Lord Chrom are all fighting right now! We are supposed to protect them! We must not die first!
Stahl: [surprised] Frederick…
Plegian 1: [draws sword] What, that’s all you can do? Well, you did pretty well for just the two of you.
[derisive laughter from the Plegians]
[Stahl is breathing hard]
Frederick: At this rate… there’s no choice. [straightens up] Stahl! Escape by yourself!
Stahl: [gasp] There’s no way I can do that!
Plegian 2: [laughs] Trying to run away? [readies sword] It’s about time for the both of you… to die!
Chrom: [running] Uwooooooooah!
[stab! Plegian screams and hits the ground]
Chrom: Frederick! Stahl! Sorry for the wait!
Frederick: Lord Chrom! You’re unharmed!
Gaius: So the enemy really has come this far.
Plegian 3: What? Reinforcements? ...no, you’re… [laughs] So you really were hiding here, Chrom, prince of Ylisse!
Plegian 3: You just come strolling out here when your minions are in trouble… you really should’ve just stayed in hiding.
Chrom: Don’t patronize me. [readies sword] Do you think I would allow you to kill my comrades right before my eyes?
Plegian 3: You talk big. But even four of youl don’t stand a chance against this many.
[malicious laughter from the Plegians]
Plegian 3: Right, boys?
Gaius: Tch. There’s so many of them.
Plegian 3: [laughs] Take a good look. You’re already covered in wounds.
Gaius: So this is it, huh?
[shiny sound of magic being cast!]
Robin: [breathing hard] Lissa…
[sounds of battle, swords clashing fade back in]
Plegian: Urrgh! How dare you! Don’t get full of yourself! [grunts, swords clash]
Chrom: [gasps and falls back] What was that?
Stahl: [grunts] Let’s go!
Chrom: T-these voices…
Frederick: Hrrr! Ha! They sound like Lissa and Robin’s voices.
Stahl: [breathing hard] They’re… being sent into our minds!?
Plegian 3: What’s with you bastards? Hearing voices? Aren’t those just your final prayers!?
Gaius: Whew. Seems like only the four of us can hear them.
[sounds of battle fade out]
[BGM: “And what if I can’t? What if I’m not worthy of her ideals?”]
Robin: Plegian soldiers… are approaching, aren’t they?
Lissa: Um... well…
Virion: No, those footsteps belong to the villagers coming to visit. It’s fine, Robin. We’ll go talk to them.
Robin: [small laugh that turns into ragged breathing] Virion… you’re quite skilled at lying. But… thank you. I know. You’ve done enough.
Robin: Lissa… Virion… leave me… and run.
Virion: [muffled noise of surprise] What are you saying?
Chrom: These voices… are they real?
Frederick: It’s the three we left behind in the village. Some power must be bringing them to us across the intervening distance.
Robin: The enemy is approaching. You can’t bring me along. I’ll only be a burden.
Lissa: [gasps] No!
Virion: [gravely] Are those your orders as tactician?
Robin: Ah… [laughs breathlessly] It’s nothing that grand. I just… don’t want to… cause you all any more sorrow.
Lissa: [small voice] S-sorrow?
Robin: [breathing hard, about to cry] Lady Emmeryn has died. If I die as well… You are all too kind. You will be overcome with sorrow.
Lissa: [about to cry] Robin…
Robin: I don’t want to burden... Chrom and the others… with any more sadness. So… so… please pretend that I… a person without memories… who doesn’t even know her past… never existed to begin with. [breathing hard] Please… forget about me.
Lissa: [gasps, shouts] Don’t say that, Robin!
Robin: Lissa… this is where we part ways. Please tell Chrom… I escaped alone… and concealed my whereabouts. [swallows] “She fled from battle. She gave in to fear and departed the battlefield.” [gasping for breath] And then… everyone will immediately forget about me. I think… I think that’s for the best.
Lissa: [crying] No! I don’t want to!
Virion: Robin… you…
Robin: I’m a hindrance… so forget about me… and run away, quickly…
Lissa: [screaming] No! I’m staying right here! I’ll protect you until the end, Robin!
Robin: Lissa… [small laugh] T-that is a problem…
[rain and sounds of battle fade back in]
Robin: But… I really… am sorry. [sobbing] Lissa, Virion. I… really am hopeless… but even so… I don’t want everyone to forget about me!
Lissa: [sobbing] Robin!
Virion: Robin… what resolve you show! [breathes in, then firmly] I have been enraptured by your character. The title of an aristocrat too is not just for show. No matter what may befall me, no matter how wretched I may become, I will protect you from the Plegian soldiers outside!
[rain falling. shouts and sounds of battle fade back in.]
Chrom: Robin harbors such feelings… and our precious friends harbor such resolve. I… I am ashamed… of my own lack of strength! I must become stronger… and stronger! So that I can protect everyone!
Frederick: I... feel the same.
Stahl: Me too.
Gaius: Hey, you guys! That’s all well and good, but Robin’s just going to laugh at us if we don’t find a way out of this mess.
Stahl: You’re right. Somehow, just hearing Robin’s voice filled me with strength.
Gaius: [laughingly] Geez, you’re easily swayed. And you were just acting like you were about to die, too.
Chrom: Easily swayed? Hm. It seems the same holds true for me.
Frederick: I… feel the same. Heh.
Plegian: [readies sword] What’s with these guys? How can they laugh in this situation?
[BGM: Conquest (Ablaze)]
Chrom: All right! [cloak whooshes] Everyone! Lend me your strength! We will be victorious no matter what!
Frederick: Aye, of course! We must not die here!
Gaius: [readies sword] Let’s end this already and go back to Robin!
Stahl: [steps forward] Yeah! And we’ll all return to Ylisse together!
Chrom: Let’s go!
[thunderclap; all Shepherds roar and charge forward]
[Plegians make astonished/afraid sounds]
Plegian 1: What!?
Plegian 2: Are they out of their minds? (What can they do with just four people!?) Che. You all! Get them! [readies sword] Who cares if we kill the prince!
Chrom: Let’s see what I’ve learned from Robin! Stahl, Frederick, take out the archers with your javelins!
Frederick: Understood! [mounts his horse, which neighs] Let’s go, Stahl!
Stahl: Yeah! [mounts] Let’s go! One, and!
[horses neigh; they charge off]
[Stahl and Frederick grunt as they attack; lots of stabbing noises ensue. lances clashing against armor and other swords. a stab and one of the Plegians screams.]
Chrom: Gaius! Charge straight into the enemy’s ranks!
Gaius: Yeah, got it!
Plegian: Don’t hold back! There’s only one of him! Whoaaaa!
Gaius: [dodge] You’re way too slow to hit me! How’s this? [stab]
Plegian 1: Oi! What’re you doing? There’s only one guy!
Plegian 2: But he’s running circles around us!
Chrom: Causing a commotion is his job, after all.
[Plegians turn; one gasps and the other draws his sword]
[Chrom grunts and stabs Plegian 2, who screams and hits the ground. Plegian 1 attacks, but Chrom parries and stabs him. The Plegian grunts and falls.]
Plegian 1: Bastards… where did you find such strength at a time like this…
[horses neigh. Frederick grunts as he attacks various enemies.]
Frederick: Pick a god and pray!
Stahl: And one from me!
[horse neighs; Stahl yells as he stabs]
Stahl: You are so dead!
[Gaius dodges and grunts as he attacks; bodies hit the ground]
Gaius: Too slow! Piece of cake! Like candy from a baby!
[thunder crashes. Chrom walks forward slowly.]
Chrom: We have friends who fight alongside us! And even now, the people we wish to protect await our return!
[Plegian groans; Chrom readies his sword]
Chrom: As long as these bonds hold true, I will not lose!
[Chrom yells and charges. thunder crash. Plegian screams and hits the ground.]
