I...will take hold of my own country.
Nothing... will change that.
Rickert. Nothing has ended at this point. When you know the truth of what happened, if you come to despise me, then so be it. But, even so, if I can chase the continuation of my dream...
...you will not be free to deny me of it.Rickert:
W-Wait! I don't understand! What do you mean by the 'truth'?!
Outta my way, Rickert!! You say nothing'll change...!!
Only chasing your dream...!! And you say it won't change!!?Griffith:
Certainly you knew this. That's the kind of man I am. Only you knew that.
Guts... I must know. Tell me the truth! What happened between the Hawks and Griffith that day?! No matter how terrible...don't I have as much a right to know as you?! No! I have to know, regardless! Guts...!!
...This is the truth?Puck:
How could...such a thing...
I had sensed it once before, but.. I guess I know now... What that image was from. (Referring to the time Guts saved Farneze from the demon possessed horse, as the whole scene reminded Guts of the Eclipse)
Awww, poop. Everything's destroyed. (What can we do now?) (Now Guts and Casca don't have a home...) (And we had just gotten together again too...)Rickert:
I'm going with you! You shouldered this...burden all by yourself...!! And here I was, not knowing a damn thing!! Just screwing around in a place like this!!
Take me with you!! I'm...still a Hawk, you know!Guts:
You can't hate Griffith.Erica:
All of you are leaving me alone?!Rickert:
Whatcha waiting for? Go get her, on the double!
Well? What're you planning to do? Still gonna do your 'journey of revenge' thing?Guts:
I can't take Casca with me anymore.
You know if you take Casca with you it'll...Guts:
I know! There's no point. I know.Puck:
Thing is, the Elf Mine is destroyed. So staying here would be rather pointless, wouldn't it? And it's already been proven that the one place where branded people can exist and not have bad things happen is the Tower of Retribution..Guts:
Isn't there a place closer to us where elves used to live?Puck:
I don't think so, really... And look, Casca's still mentally shut herself out. Poor girl. She didn't want to leave the house from the start, you know?
Only my Elven intelligence can help now... (Uh, I think. =P ) Wait! I got it! It's a bit far from here, but it's a beautiful paradise that's safer than anywhere else in the world! (Why didn't I think of it before?!) My house!-End Chapter 183-
