Is that really all I have to do? Why did I think this was gonna be more complicated?
Fishing is not as simple as it sounds. One cannot simply throw their line in and expect perfection. It takes training and experience to master.
Right... Well, I put the bait on like you showed me, so I think I'm ready to try it now.
You seem confident. Very well. Face the water and cast your line in as I showed you earlier.
Like... this? Oww! It's caught in my hair!
Hmph. As I said, it takes training. Face the water and try again.
Did you really just snicker at me? Whatever, I'll get it right this time... There, I did it! Now what?
Now, we wait.
So, how long does it usually take to get a bite?
It depends. It could take minutes, hours, or we may end up with nothing. Are you ready to leave?
Oh... No, it's just that it's been a few hours and I'm kinda hungry. I was hoping to catch something by now.
Patient endurance is key in fishing, and one must always be prepared in case of failure. Take this.
You brought sandwiches? You really are prepared.
There were many times when I went fishing and failed to catch anything, so I always come prepared.
Ah. So how long have you been fishing?
Since I was young. I used to go all the time before I inherited the company. Now I rarely have time for recreational activities.
I've been telling you that you work too hard. You should make some time for it.
Oh?! I think I got a bite!
Quickly! Start reeling!
Remember your form! If you waiver it may escape!
Got it! Oh no!
Do not be discouraged. Failing is part of the learning process.
Gee, thanks... I didn't know fish could jump out of the water like that.
Hmm? It seems the fish managed to bite a hole in your pocket during the struggle. Were you carrying bait?
What? Oh no! The Cruxis crystal is gone! It must have eaten it!
You were carrying a Cruxis crystal?
How am I supposed to tell Lloyd..?
Tell me what?
Lloyd! What are you doing here?
When I got back to Iselia the professor told me you guys went fishing, so I figured I'd join in. What did you wanna tell me?
Genis, a portion of the water is glowing. The fish must have absorbed some of its power.
You're right, now's my chance! I'll knock it out of the water!
What's going on?
Pancake time... Stalagmite!
Whoa, it's huge!
It's coming straight for us! Eagle Dive! Wolverine!
What is happening?!
Lloyd, quick! Finish it off!
R-right! Rising Falcon!
You did it, Lloyd!
Yeah... So, why were we fighting this fish? And how did it get so big?
Oh, right! It ate this. Here! This is for you from Kratos.
Is this... his Cruxis crystal?
I see. So that's why you were carrying it.
How did you get this from him?
He gave it to me yesterday on Derris Kharlan.
Now I just have more questions.
As do I...
It's a long story... I'll tell you guys about it on the way back.
Dad, thank you...
