Once Upon a Time in the Forest...

Boudica: ~♪

Boudica: ~♪ ~♪♪♪

Boudica: ...Hmm? What is it?

Boudica: Oh, sorry. Was I humming? It's been so long since I've walked through my home forest.

Boudica: I just, you know? I was just enjoying myself.

Boudica: Anyway, Fujimaru, are you okay? We've been walking a long way. Are you tired?

Fujimaru 1: I'm fine.

Boudica: I see. Okay. Glad you're doing well!

Fujimaru 2: What about you? You okay?

Boudica: Hahaha, I'm a Servant! I've got tons of stamina.

Mash: Oh...

Mash: (That's what I always say, but today she said it first–)

Mash: (N-No, it doesn't matter. It's not important.)

Fou: Fou?

Mash: Yes, what is it, Fou? Why are you rubbing against me?

Fou: Fou, fo, foou. Kyuu!

Dr. Roman: I think Fou's trying to make you feel better. Boudica's like everyone's big sister.

Dr. Roman: So Fujimaru ends up being like her little [♂ brother /♀️ sister}. Yup, yup.

Dr. Roman: And that means Mash is going to feel lonely. –That's what Fou's saying, I think.

Fou: Fou, fooou.

Mash: ...Thank you, Fou. But don't worry about me.

Mash: Both Boudica and I are Master's Servants.

Mash: I don't feel lonely– Not at all.

Mash: It actually makes me feel better to have more people looking out for Master.

Fou: Fou?

Boudica: Oh, right. Before we rayshifted...

Boudica: I used the kitchen in the Chaldea living quarters to make us some lunch.

Boudica: If you're hungry, would you like to have some?

Boudica: I tried making Japanese rice balls. It's my first time, so I don't know if they'll be good–

Boudica: But if you're hungry, how about it?

Fujimaru 1: Thanks.

Fujimaru 2: I am feeling hungry.

Boudica: Really? Great! Okay–let's take a break here.

Boudica: Hey, Mash, how about it? Can we rest?

Mash: Oh, yes. It should be safe. We need to give Senpai a chance to rest, too.

Boudica: Hooray♪ Let's eat, then! I think we could rest by that grass over there, right?

Fou: Foou!

Mash: That's right. We won't need to lay down a blanket then–

Dr. Roman: I'm jealous you guys get to have a picnic! I'm eating by myself...wait!

Dr. Roman: Multiple magical energy signature detected! We may have found our target!

Boudica: Oh, jeez! I was looking forward a good relaxation in the forest.

Boudica: These nasty little goblins are interrupting just when it's getting good!

Mash: Multiple packs coming from the front, Master! Be careful.

???: ...Heheh. Yummy woman...yummy...hahaha.

???: Kill the men... Take the women back to the nest, heheh.

Dr. Roman: !!

Fou: !!!

Dr. Roman: Delicious-looking women? ...O-Oh no! I heard the ancient Celtic goblins were primitive!

Dr. Roman: But this goes beyond primitive, and sounds like they're planning something weird!?

Dr. Roman: B-But are they? Are they planning something weird!?

Fou: Fo, foou!?

Mash: Doctor? Fou, too...? Why are you so agitated?

Boudica: Not only have you interrupted our rest, you have defiled the forests of Britannia–

Boudica: I was planning on resting Fujimaru on my lap and give the Master a much needed pampering–

Mash: Huh?

Boudica: I don't know if it's the Grail's influence, but these goblins have grown bigger than usual!

Boudica: I remember normal goblins being a little bit smaller than this!

Boudica: You weird goblins, I will never–

Boudica: Ever, lose to you!

Dr. Roman: !!

Fou: !!!

???: !!!!

Dr. Roman: Huh? Y-You're not doing that on purpose, right!? Boudica, that's what people say when they lose–

Fou: Fou!

Boudica: Huh? What?

Mash: Doctor, what are you saying?

Fujimaru 1: L-Let's just fight!

Fujimaru 2: We will never lose!

Mash: Right, Master! Commencing combat!


Dr. Roman: "...Damn it..."

Dr. Roman: "...You captured us girls..."

Dr. Roman: "...And took us here... What are you going to do to us..."

Fujimaru 1: Hehehehe, just what you think!

Fujimaru 2: Hehehehe, you'll find out soon!

Dr. Roman: "...O-Oh no..."

Dr. Roman: "...Sob... I-If you're going to do that to us, I'd rather you just..."

Mash: Doctor, Senpai, what are you doing?

Mash: First you ordered a panting Boudica to "Look down, embarrassed," during battle...

Mash: ...and then you started saying this weird stuff... Why? What's the meaning of this?

Dr. Roman: No, hahaha! It's nothing! I just wanted to try it!

Fujimaru 1: Sorry.

Fujimaru 2: I couldn't help myself.

Boudica: Hahaha, I had fun! Anyway–

Boudica: Thanks for coming with me, guys. We wiped out those bad goblins from my home's forests.

Boudica: When you fixed Nero's era, I got a bad feeling.

Boudica: So I came here to check it out, and sure enough, I was right.

Mash: I believed in you. I knew your intuition was correct.

Boudica: Thanks, Mash. You really are a good girl. I'll give you something nice later.

Mash: N-Not really...

Boudica: But I've never seen goblins swell up like that. There were so many, and they attacked us.

Boudica: Forest spirits aren't necessary always like that, you know.

Boudica: It should be rare to see them at all. Hmm...

Boudica: Maybe this is the Grail's doing? What a mess that thing makes.

Dr. Roman: Oh, yeah. If you look through the records it causes all kinds of trouble.

Mash: Is it that easy... for human wishes to cause disaster?

Mash: The Grail can grant any wish, so it can easily cause disasters. Which means that maybe...

Mash: Human wishes themselves often bring disaster. That's just a theory though–

Boudica: Yes. You might be right.

Boudica: But I don't think I want to believe that.

Boudica: Wishes are supposed to be... They're supposed to be much simpler things.

Boudica: More humble, and warmer, I think.

Boudica: For example...

Dr. Roman: For example?

Fou: Fou?

Boudica: Like eating a nice meal with someone you love, maybe.

Boudica: That's what I mean. Do you understand–what I'm saying?

Fujimaru 1: Yup! Lunchtime!

Fujimaru 2: Let's get back to that break!

Boudica: Hahaha, that's right! Now, sit down. I'll get the lunches out!

Boudica: Fujimaru, you sit next to me. Come on, you too, Mash! You sit next to me, too!

Mash: R-Right!

Fou: Fou!
