Natani: Are you almost done? I feel bad enough waiting even this long.
Kat: Just about. Just need to make sure this doesn’t fall apart like last time.
Natani: Okay, good. As I said, Keith’s not in danger of just dropping dead or anything, but…
Natani: I don’t know how long it’ll take to make him see reason.
Kat: You really care about him, don’t you?
Natani: W-what do you mean? Of course… We’re… friends. And I owe him a debt. That’s all there is to it!
Kat: A debt, hm?
Natani: Yeah. You probably already guessed, but Keith’s been covering for me.
Kat: I assumed so, from all the talk of “Basitin black magic.”
Kat: And there was also that time I caught the two of you in the baths together. I didn’t know it at the time, but in hindsight…
Natani: H-hey! That was a misunderstanding! We ended up in the same bath by accident! And he was washing my back! It wasn’t what it looked like! I don’t even know why I let him—
Kat: Woah woah woah! I wasn’t implying you two were doing anything! I just meant it’s obvious he’d known then.
Natani: Oh… Right… well…
Natani: Anyway, Keith’s stuck his neck out for me a lot. He protected me when I wasn’t… in control. He even risked his own life for me. And what have I ever done for him in return?
